We highly recommend this apartment. Everything was provided including an excellent welcoming pack of supplies (including wine!) The patio/terrace is terrific and the whole accommodation was very clean and beautifully presented. Helene was very efficient and helpful. A 5 star holiday for sure. Thank you we loved it
The apartment is based in a residential area of Funchal with lots of amenities such as bars, supermarkets and bakeries close by with everything reasonable priced. There is also a large modern shopping centre (The Forum) just a few minutes walk away. The studio apartment is perfect for couples and the owners have put a lot of effort into ensuring you have everything you need for a perfect holiday. The large balcony area is the highlight and a wonderful place to relax. There is a very regular bus service into Funchal but it is also possible to walk into town in about 40 minutes. The hotel area close to the Lido is only a 15 minute walk away and here you will find some of the best restaurants in Funchal (the top 3 restaurants on TA are a short walk from each other and Cris's Place is particularly recommended for a fine dining experience to remember). The owners arranged for a taxi to pick us up for both arrival and departure and a particularly nice touch were the pastries, bottle of wine and other treats which greeted us on arrival. We would highly recommend this apartment to any couples looking for a relaxing holiday in Funchal.
The British go to Madeira in February and March to seek an early taste of Spring. This year we two Brits succeeded beyond our expectations. Leaving behind gales and rain and temperatures barely above freezing, we were treated to the sort of blue skies and very warm sunshine we would be delighted to experience at home in a particularly benign June. Nuno, the owner of this penthouse studio gave us a hugely warm welcome that made us feel like VIPs. The apartment is very well equipped with top quality self-catering facilities and is perfectly situated, close to all amenities yet away from the tourist areas - although the centre of Funchal is only a 20 minute bus ride away and the bus service is cheap and frequent. The terrace is simply superb, a fantastic private oasis with unforgettable views of the sea during the day and the stars at night.
The apartment is stunning. Very clean with everything you would need for a comfortable and restful stay. I really wished we had stayed for two weeks. The roof terrace is delightful with the hot tub and BBQ.The location is perfect with a good shopping area near by and some very good restaurants.It takes around an hours walk, or a short bus ride to Funchal where there is a great market and lots of lovely shops.The owner Nuno could not be more helpful and made our stay most enjoyable.
Easy access Funchal Centre and other areas nearby. Very well equipped for our two week stay which we thoroughly enjoyed. Spacious balcony with nice view and comfortable seating areas near to hot tub in is a great amenity. The owner is very easy to deal with and helpful. His welcome pack of fruit, wine and Madeira cake was much appreciated.
A short bus ride to the centre of Funchal or a healthy 50 minute or so walk, the apartment is located in a mainly residential area with friendly neighbours. Nearby are a selection of local shops and with Forum Madeira complex a 15 minute stroll if you want a shopping experience.
The apartment is a delight and lives up to the pictures and description. This taken together with attentive hosts made for a relaxing and enjoyable visit.
WE stayed for 1 month, and it was a month of sheer happiness. The flat is clean, wonderfully decorated and equipped. Located in a safe, vital neighbourhood, it is just steps away from shops selling truly fresh food and from really nice cafes and small restaurants. The sea is close, and we enjoyed the bathing on both the beach and at the nearby Lido, where there is access to the sea. The owner is very alert to his clients' needs, and puts himself out to be helpful and pleasant. It is impossible to be sufficiently fulsome in one's description of this lovely apartment.
