1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Funchal, Madeira, Madeira Islands
A spacious, modern 2 bedded apartment with pool, gardens & views. The apartment is newly decorated & furnished & is bright & sunny. With an attractive, fitted kitchen with dishwasher, washer, tumble dryer and microwave. There is a large lounge/diner with TV and terrace. This is a bright, sunny and spacious property in a prestigious, gated development. The development is secure, private and has allocated underground parking, a lift, pool with loungers and a garden. It is literally only a few minutes downhill walk to all amenities so you don't have to have a car, especially as cabs are cheap. The apartment sits on a short but steep incline affording wonderful views but as with most of Madeira, it is on a hill and you may want to use cabs to get home, as we do. We can arrange airport pick ups and drop offs and cleaners f... Read more

We stayed for 5 days (Monday to Friday) but had book for 7 days due to the minimum stay policy. This worked out well as we arranged flights to arrive am on the Monday and depart late evening on the Friday. We booked the owners local agent (Juan) to collect us from the airport on arrival and take us directly...

Hi Wendy, thank-you for your feedback and I take on board the idea of the info letter. I do apologise for the issues you experienced with the ants & the airport collection. I had asked for separate collections so I'm terribly sorry this was not forthcoming. I'm so glad however that you liked the apartment and the location. The ant...

The apartment was well equipped and was very spacious. The view from the balcony looked towards the harbour and the city beyond. Its location meant that it was a 10 minute walk to the old town and although the walk back up was steep it still only took a few minutes longer. The airport express bus stops at the end...

Additional amenities & feature info
The apartment faces East/West so there is always sun at the back and front. Morning sun in the kitchen and afternoon sun in the living room, bedroom and on the balcony. The apartment is only 8 years old but has been totally redecorated and newly furnished. The front of the apartment overlooks the city bowl and out to sea and the back of the apartment looks out over the gardens and beyond to the city and the sea, including the port, where you can see the cruise ships arrive. We have put in two large single, posturepedic beds so they can be pushed apart or kept together. The bedroom has doors onto the balcony and overlooks the garden.<BR>There is also a blow up bed, suitable for a small child and a cot and high chair for those travelling with an infant.
