Beautiful two bedroomed seafront apartment with superb view from the balcony towards Funchal city. Excellent location, close to the major road links to move to any point on the Madeira Island. Staying with us is the best choice because we are near a golf course, near the beach (Barreirinha complex and Santiago Beach) and you can swim with the dolphins and watch the whales, but if you are a nature lover you can easily reach the 'Levadas' and be inspired by nature, by the 'Laurissilva'. If you decide to stay with us you will have full support and all the information needed to accomplish what you want to do.

Love this apartment, perfect in every way
Location is quiet although as many properties in Madeira it is built on a sloping road so not suitable for infirm guests. The apartment is very spacious situated on the first floor served by lift and stairs access.

Spacious, comfortable and homely apartment
Very comfortable spacious apartment, everything you could wish for and more. Suitable for all age groups Liked the fact we were met at the airport and taken back for our return flight. The best was the thoughtfulness of the owner in providing for every eventuality.

Thank you for a lovely stay
Spacious and extremely well equipped. The owner of this apartment made us very welcome and had thought of everything, including bottle of champagne to help us celebrate new year. The views from the living room are great with the harbour in the distance, walk into old town fine only 10 mins, steep on way back but I don't mind. Better to sleep in back bedroom, two balconies perfect sun in the morning at the back and in the afternoon at the front. Please beware if taking a yellow cab in Funchal we took one to the botanical gardens 25 euros return distance 3 miles or so, dishonest taxi drivers taking advantage of tourists its a shame.

Thank you very much for your kind words about our holiday apartment at Palheiro Residence. Our goal is to provide the best service to our guests. I am so sad that you have a bad experience about the taxi driver. They have a unique number at the door you should take that number and ask for the receipt and we should present a complaint to the authorities.

Superb apartment with lovely harbour view
The apartment was spacious, fully equipped and very comfortable. The owner, Gerardo , provides everything to make his visitors' stay convenient and enjoyable. We particularly appreciated the welcome tour of the apartment. Gerardo also kindly provided some food for a snack and breakfast, as well as some local Madeiran Christmas specialities. He made sure we could contact him easily if we had any questions or needed information. The apartment had been so well prepared that we did not have any problems, but Gerardo called in once or twice, just in case. He does everything he can to ensure his visitors have a relaxed stay. This is the best rental property we have stayed in, with the highlight being the view of the harbour from the lounge window and bedroom balcony, which is especially lovely at night with the twinkling lights of Funchal. We were fortunate to be able to watch the fireworks to celebrate the New Year from the roof of the building. That was an unforgettable experience. We were in one of the best places to enjoy the display. The apartment has a good location, away from the main hotel districts in Funchal. The most popular restaurant area is about 15 minutes walk away through the lovely cobbled streets of the Old Town. We know Funchal quite well and enjoyed being so close to the town and not having to get a bus in and out as we have done in the past when eating out at night or heading off on an excursion by day.

VERY PLEASED WITH HIGH STANDARD
Spacious clean and comfortable 2 bed apartment with good view of harbour from main bedroom balcony It was also well equipped even including a PC. .Gerardo was very friendly and provided a nice welcome pack and arranged taxi to and from airport which was much appreciated The apartment is located up a very steep hill[but this is Funchal} about 20 minutes walk to old town but longer on way back! We usually took a taxi back at night at a cost of 6 euros but had to direct driver on 4 out out of 5 times despite writing down address.The beds were a little on the firm side but this is just a matter of personal taste Overall more than happy with accomodation

Home from Home
Spent a week here from July 30th to August 6th 2015. More than pleased with everything about this accommodation. Geraldo, our landlord for the week was as good as gold. We never saw him unless we needed something, then he just seemed to appear! He arranged taxi transfers to and from the airport and the cost of these was included in the booking. On arrival, Gerardo showed us around the apartment and even left us with fruit, cakes, bread, cheese, ham & fruit juice so we had something to keep us going until we hit the supermarket. The apartment itself is a gentle 10 minute walk from the seafront and town which is just far enough away. €4-5 taxi ride back from town. It is beautifully well appointed and every mod cons you would want at home. It was nice to do all our washing there meaning there was none to be done when we got home. Funchal itself is lovely. Great climate and quite cheap if travelling from the UK. Would go back and would definitely look to stay here again.

Beautiful island, very comfortable holiday home, amazing host
There are so many compliments that I could give about the Palheiro Residence! The apartment itself is beautiful. It is furnished and decorated in very good taste and is kept spotless. A cleaning lady came once a week and the towels and bed linen were changed regularly. This house is also very well equipped as there is a TV and stereo in the living room, while in the kitchen there is a nice stove, microwave and all manner of blenders etc. Gerardo even provided hand towels, washing powder for the washing machine and washing up liquid.The apartment is very roomy, there is more that enough space for 4 people and there are also 2 balconies for you to enjoy. One of these looks over a communal garden and the other, which is entered from the master bedroom, looks out on to the city and Caminho do Palheiro itself which can, at times, be busy. The building is about 10 minutes walk from the ocean (15 if you are coming back up the hill) and is at a comfortable distance from the more typically touristy part of Funchal. Gerardo is a fantastic host and did everything in his power to make sure that we were comfortable from the very beginning when I first got in touch with him about renting his apartment, which made the whole process much simpler. He checked on us regularly and even brought us some information regarding things to do in Madeira. On our first evening, he drove us to the supermarket to allow us to do some shopping and took us on a tour of Funchal to help us get used to the area. He also left us a lovely lunch and a traditional Portuguese pie which was very appreciated after the flight. We felt very comfortable with Gerardo as our host and it felt as though we were visiting a close friend rather than renting a holiday apartment. Also, we were very grateful to Gerardo for putting us in touch with Ruben, a taxi driver who speaks very good English and is willing to do tours of the island and levada walks (which are also a great experience) for reasonable prices. If you are still undecided, please note, that Madeira is a beautiful island with a variety of activities that suit many types of people. You can go hiking, you can relax in a park, you can go dolphin watching (which I would recommend) or you can spend a day at the beach (although, be aware that they are not sandy beaches as this is a volcanic island. Rather, they are pebbly and there are some concrete platforms where you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas, however these are also good fun, have lifeguards and allow for both swimming and paddling). We really enjoyed our holiday, thank you.

Geniales Feriendomizil
Die Villa, die wir gebucht haben, liegt wunderschön und ruhig gelegen an der Küste von Funchal. Sowohl die Inneneinrichtung wie auch das ganze Erscheinungsbild der Villa ist absolut erste Klasse. Von der Terrasse aus hat man einen wunderschönen Blick auf das Meer und das Stadtzentrum von Funchal, welches man mit dem Auto in ca. 15 Minuten erreicht. Im Palheiro Village gibt es auch noch ein Hotel und eine Golfanlage, die man in wenigen Minuten erreicht. Umgeben von blühender Vegetation fühlt man sich wie im Paradies. Der Service im Golfrestaurant ist ebenfalls ausgezeichnet. Diese Anlage kann man nur bestens empfehlen.
