We booked this appartment of trip advisor website; this was our first trip to Funchal. We did not know Funchal at all so we did not know what to expect.
The apartment is on the east side of the city, and in a modest local residential area. This part of the city has an old bohemian and artistic style about it, it is also referred to as the old town (Zona Velha).The apartment is two minutes walk from the seafront where you have many nice little cafe/ bistro and other shop.
it is 5/8 minutes walk from the Saint Maria street where you find many amazing restaurants and bars spilling out on to the narrow cobbled streets. there is a wonderful feeling about the whole place.
It is also 10 minute walk to the famous food and flower market,10-15 minutes walk to the Cable cars and only 15-20 minutes walk to the city centre/buses stations.
The Apartment is on the 3rd floor, very quiet no traffic noise or loud music e.g just a residential local community..
We found this modest but very well equipped and comfortable apartment as per description and had more positive and pleasant surprises,e.g we found it very very clean inside and out, and very well equipped, Plenty of towels, very clean white cotton sheets, very comfortable beds; there was a bowl of fruit awaiting us and the owner Fernando had placed fresh milk, eggs in the fridge for us,The apartment also have a lot of little extras e.g tea, coffee, salt pepper cooking oil, olive oil even washing powder, which we did not expect.
The shower was good with plenty of hot water. the bath is good too but may need a better plug.
The owner Fernando is very kind and helpful, he really could not do enough for you. He picked us up and took us back from the airport at no extra charge. We really did not expect this. We had great time in this appartment, and we are looking forward to go back in the near future.
Thank you Fernando for looking after us so well.
