Niara couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful during the booking process and our stay. Apartment in great location with amazing views and sunsets. With lots of excellent restaurants within walking distance. We had the most brilliant day tour with Niara's husband Miguel in his amazing old jeep such a fun way to see the beautiful island of Maderia so pleased we booked before arriving. Hope to return again very soon.

The manager luis is a gem - Very helpful and friendly. Thanks so much for your help. The apartment is quite a bit out of Funchal, and we haired a car to compensate for that - the hills up the bus are Very steep, and for elderly people not used to it, a bit of a stugggle. It would have been nice to have a book in the appartement with more info on how to work the TV - no English channels although there were supposed to be because the internet signal was too weak - just kept buffering,
