There is a breathtaking view of the ocean from the balcony .The kitchen is fully supplied with plates, bowls, pots, pans, cutlery etc. The bedrooms were comfy and very spacious. The apartment was very clean and tidy. Across the street there is a very convenient shopping centre that is open till late. There is also a free parking that is located underneath the building. Behind the building you can find a few restaurants which serve delicious food. There is approximately 14 minutes to the main town 'Funchal'. We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. Dominik

The apartment is a little dated but the direct sea views from the balcony more than make up for that. From the apartment you can go through a gate to the beach - if you turn right a path takes you past a few cafes and then into Camera de Lobos after about 2km. Left along the beach takes you through a tunnel and up some steps to a few more cafes/bars and a bus stop. Just through the tunnel are some nice rock pools which operate like an outdoor swimming lido. It is also possible to continue walking along the front eventually arriving at Funchal marina. Our favourite restaurants were Cris's and Real Canoa. The apartment was quiet (apart from the sea!), there was a bar area and manned reception. A hand towel and bath towel per person were provided. No soap, washing powder or dishwasher tablets - we left ours but might be worth packing a few supplies.
