“Great appartment - out of town a bit, but not a problem”
Reviewed September 27, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

The apartment is pretty and comfortable for two people (for four it would be a bit of a squeeze). Clean and tidy. It is in the roof space of the bigger house, but the sloping roof doesn't feel claustrophobic since there are big siding windows to the two balconies. It is set at the end of a small road, and even though it is in a more residential there is nothing overlooking so it feels private and is reasonably quiet for something in Funchal. Buses go to Funchal centre (too far to walk) and a taxi is only about 6 euros. However, there are a couple of bakeries / coffee shops, a take away pizza place (good), and a local restaurant (very good) all within 5mins walk (albeit steep in places). The pool is very nice. It sits in front of the main house, so I am not sure how that works when people are staying in the main house, but there wasn't anybody there when we were there so it was a nice place to relax. Great communications from Helena about the rental and for sorting out any difficulties.

Dear Andy,

Thank you so much for this detailed review and happy that you enjoyed staying there. At the main house no one is there which makes the pool area totally private and very nice to enjoy, only for this apartment, normally two people on it.
Hope to have you back again and wish you both all the best.
Helena and Roberto.

“Cosy appartment, warm-hearted welcome”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We rented the appartment for last-minute vacations in Madeira end of July 2016. From the beginning, Helena impressed us with her promptness and willingness to assist. The contact was excellent, even before our arrival, and enabled us to manage a late arrival with ease.

The appartment is everything the pictures promise it to be. It has two balconies, one with a pretty view over Funchal and the surrounding area, and all the necessary equipment. It is well partitioned and very, very cosy. While not within an easy walking distance from the centre of Funchal, there is a direct bus line at a less then a two-minutes walk. Nearby commerces and a take-over restaurant are also a plus, especially after spending the whole day exploring the marvelous island of Madeira.

Helena was always available and very helpful during our stay and I cannot thank her enough!

We definately recommend this appartment and consider it for any future vacations in Madeira.

Although we were late arriving, Helena was there to welcome us and had thoughtfully provided us with an an array of food for which we were very grateful. Throughout our stay both her and Roberto couldn't have been more helpful or friendly, and were always willing to help in any way they could. Many thanks again for the delicious home made cake!
The apartment itself is in a quiet area and it is well situated for getting into town easily and also to the large shopping centre . The frequent bus's [ nos. 9 and 18] are at the end of the [ v.steep] road where there is also a little grocery shop , a recommended eat in and takeaway restaurant. and a little further down, a coffee shop with wonderful cakes!
If you have a car you can park at the apartment and it is easy and fast to get onto the main road which goes around the island from here.
The apartment is very clean and welcoming and we loved it straight away. Well furnished and everything you need - lovely, cool cotton sheets and a brilliant shower! I found the bed comfortable, but my friend did complain about the sofa bed.
The views from the balcony are great- we saw some dramatic sunrises, nights were spectacular with the lights spread out around you and up into the hills, Take binoculars. The two balconies allow you to follow the sun throughout the day and the pool and surroundings are clean and welcoming after a hot day out. Unavoidably there are rather a lot of steep steps to negotiate to get there and back. [ I have back and leg trouble] Not a problem if you are fit .
If you have a car there is parking at the apartment and it is quick and easy to join the main road for trips around the island. All in all a wonderful place !

“Beautiful apartment in a beautiful building with a lovely pool.”
Reviewed November 8, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Wonderful place in easy access to the old town of Funchal. The hosts Helena and Roberto are thoroughly charming. The apartment is very lovely as is the Quinta.
My only comment is that the bed was a little hard for me but I do have a sensitive back.

“Great place to be for a relaxing, enjoyable holiday”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband and me enjoyed our holiday in this apartment as it was just great for a relaxing and romantic holiday. It is a sweetly decorated, clean apartment, quiet location, great view, free Wifi and privacy. The balcony is quite spacious with an amazing view (sea side), equipped with a sunbed, sunshade and barbecue. We enjoyed breakfast outside every day. It has another balcony and a swimming pool, which is for private use only and has a really breath-taking view as well. The apartment is decorated very sweetly and gives a cozy feeling (books, candles etc.). It has also a fireplace and all the equipment needed, which makes it even more homelike. It has an own parking space and a car is recommended generally when in Madeira. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and a washing machine as well. The location is good, there are two supermarkets nearby (about 5 minutes walk, which is the smaller one and another in 10 mins walk, however, the road is quite steep to walk as everywhere in Madeira) as well as another quite large supermarket within Madeira Shopping Mall, which is a 10 minutes drive from the apartment. A restaurant is nearby as well (5 mins walk with Take-Away option). Funchal city center can be reached by car in about 15 minutes, the high way in about 10 minutes. The host were very very friendly and we were really pleased to meet them! As a present, they gave us a famous Madeira wine, which was really nice. They have also prepared a file which includes top restaurant recommendations (local - not so touristy, various price categories. Very much recommended to go for dinner) and sight seeing recommendations. Overall, it has been a great place to stay and we will definitely book it again when in Madeira next time.
