Comfortable flat for four, clean and the balcony is great for sitting having breakfast or drinking wine in evening. There is Wifi and TV. We had a car so transport was not an issue. There is a bus stop outside. We feel safe and people are friendly. Would recommend flat to family and friends. It is 20 minutes by car from airport and also around 20 minutes into Funchal. We loved the views, wildlife and sounds of waves, birds singing and crickets at night. For wildlife lovers, we saw kestrel, lots of little birds and butterflies. Pleased to have found such a 'haven' !

The absolute truth is that we were initially slightly underwhelmed by the area, until we found our way down to the Cristo Rei statue, cafe, and beach. It turns out that these are very close (walkable in about 5-10 minutes), but unless you know to look for the Cristo Rei, there are no obvious signs or anything for the beach. However, even before we found the beach area, the apartment was still very convenient to get to from the airport and it was an easy and comfortable spot to explore from with a car. We always easily found free parking right nearby, which was great. We didn't use the buses, but there were also regular buses into Funchal. In addition, just as a random tip, we liked Funchal much better in the evening after the cruise ships had left! In addition, the owners were very quick to respond, and provided really useful ininformation that helped make our visit go smoothly, and Brian was on hand and available to answer any questions we had.
