Great location - 10 mins walk to the lavadores market, old town, waterfront, cafes, supermarkets and restaurants.
The flat was very clean and well look after by the management. Its like a home away from home with the kitchen well equipped for ones' cooking needs. Having said that, we only cooked dinner once during our stay. We decided that we prefer to enjoy the local cuisuine far too much to want to cook our dinner. We enjoyed our relaxing breakfasts and lunches at the kitchen's balcony with the sea view.
Luis, the manager, was most kind in giving us some fruit, cheese, jam, a bottle of water and local bread at the start of our stay. He was very helpful in giving direction to Pico De Arieiro where we went for our walk and also other queries that we had. A phone was provided in the flat for us to contact Luis should we have any issues or queries. I thought this was a nice gesture. It makes contact with Luis is so much easier and he is very responsive and helpful.
Theres parking on site, which is in the basement. It Is tight going down/up a level. But with care and slow driving round the bend when going up/down a level, we successfully navigated our rented seat leon without a scratch into our level and parking space. After a few times going round the tight corners, we got used to it :)
We enjoyed our stay and will happily stay there again.
We have been vacationing in Madeira since I was small and we've stayed always with family members. This year we've decided to rent an apartment in Funchal and I must say that was the best thing we've done. I've traveled with 2 seniors and my expectations where high seeing all the beautiful pictures but when I've entered this precious very clean, luxury condominium my expectations where far beyond high, specially with such a extended stay. The view from the 2 balconies was just WAW. The owner Luis made it very special to us by surprising us with a welcome snack which my mom enjoyed it (sry for the next person reserving this is not more a surprise hahah). Only around the corner you will get into the hearth of the city and with free parking space we didn't had to pay for parking.
I must give a personal THANK YOU note to Mr. Luis for this great vacation and will definitely return.
