However it would be helpful to have a few of the basics kept in the kitchen - we had to shop for absolutely everything, even salt and pepper. The garden with the hot-tub was a real bonus, although the traffic noise from the main road prevented us from sitting outside as often as we would have liked. There are several very good restaurants / cafes downstairs. We didn't go in the pool as it was too cold - but it looked very inviting! The location of the apartment was very central and handy for buses, shops and everything else in Funchal.

                                                                                                      Just returned from our first holiday in Madeira staying at this lovely apartment in Funchal. The apartment is very spacious and clean and feels more like a home than a holiday let and has a nice balcony with great views over the town and out to sea and the Marina. Manuel collected us from the airport (about 20 minutes drive) and was very friendly and informative about the Island, and dropped us off at the apartment where we met Rita the cleaner who gave us a tour of the apartment and building which was very helpful. The pool area is lovely and quiet too and a real bonus. It is just a 5-10 minute walk to both the old and new town areas. The only downside is the steep hill back to the apartment but you cant have everything and it did help with some much needed exercise after eating at the many excellent restaurants close by, particularly in the Old Town. We would recommend this apartment and Madeira in general. Five stars!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      It was a first time visit for us to Madeira and we loved the warmth and peace of the island. We enjoyed driving around and exploring all it had to offer. I wonder if the location of the property might prove tricky for older or infirm visitors with 3 strenuous hills to negotiate up to it. The initial meeting with Mrs Melo was very curt we found, and little info given, although she was much friendlier when she returned at the end of the week. Could I also suggest that the cost of the final cleaning be added to the property rental cost? It all becomes embarassing when trying to sort it out when you have only just arrived.Finally the positioning of the apartment was disappointing in that there was no afternoon sun and poor views.If this all sounds negative sorry, you did ask, but other than that ----we had a comfortable, enjoyable stay, thank you. (just thought the kitchen was lacking in knives for cooking with also).
