“Really well equipped and comfortable apartment - feels like a home”
Reviewed June 26, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights with our 3 and 7 year old daughters. It was great - we have stayed in lots of apartments but this was the best equipped with lots of kitchen equipment, a washing machine with washing powder and a lovely balcony. The owner used to live there and somehow you can tell it was a home. It really makes you comfortable and is easy to live in (unlike some places where there are only a few odds and ends.) We didn't hire a car but there was a parking space.

It is also very easy access to the centre of Machico - 15 mins on foot with a 3 year old. A lovely bakery across the road and a supermarket 5 mins away. Machico is quite small but this actually made it very relaxing - there were a couple of nice play areas and we had fun counting lizards. I chose the area as we only had a short time so wanted to be close to the airport for minimum fuss and also thought my girls would like the sandy breach. We also took the bus to Funchal one day, it took about 50 mins and they go every hour or so. The weather was great with intermittent sunshine and clouds that kept it from being too hot or cold.

Our host was great - he picked us up from the airport for a small fee and then dropped off the doll my daughter had left in his car.

We had a brilliant time and I would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Thank you Duarte.

Very friendly welcome and total availability . Friendly neighbors without much noise, quiet area near the city center. House clean and very good condition with parking. I felt like I was at home during the week I spent in Madeira.
