The car park, which is within the apartment block, is also a real bonus, as is the free wifi. The apartment also has a lovely balcony offering great views, exactly like the photo in the advert. We enjoyed breakfast out here every day and often had dinner there too. There's information in the apartment for tourist attractions, transport etc. Communication with the owner before and on arrival was very prompt and reliable. We were met by a friendly and helpful manager who showed us around the property and gave us useful advice. The apartment is excellent value for money. We would definitely recommend it and would stay here again if we return to Madeira. Many thanks for everything - we had a great holiday!

The apartment has everything you will need for a perfect stay in one of the best positions in Funchal..... modern, bright, clean, airy, great location and views, huge balcony, comfortable beds. We will be back again. Thank you Isabella.

The ECO bus (00- Variation 2 Cruzes) stops at the end of the street, which makes getting to and from town much easier. Relax and eat/drink on the balcony. Watch the cruise liners come and go. 2 museums and 2 cafes nearby. La Vie shopping centre, including Pingo Doce, and Carriere Street of restaurants within walking distance downhill: take a taxi home unless you are fit!
