An easy walk down to the Old Town and shopping districts - much harder walk back uphill but one bus brings you to the door and 3 more drop you just around the corner for a short downhill stroll back! Some dog noise overnight but it certainly did not stop me sleeping better than I have in years, and evenings on the balcony looking over the harbour with a glass of something were thoroughly enjoyed. Sietske is exemplary in her communications and the information provided at the house was comprehensive. In Sietske's absence we were met at the house by her friend Pauline who was also very welcoming and helpful. We would be very glad to stay here againg when we next get over to Madeira.

Met Barbara who brought some more local fruits and a pineapple cake which tasted lovely. Very helpful with anything we enquired about, only 20 minutes on local bus into Funchal and great little restaurant just around the corner, Herranca Real, well worth a visit or two (or more in our case). Very close to two supermarkets and coffee shops and pharmacy so everything you need in the area. Would recommend booking this apartment if you are planning a trip to Madeira.

Spotlessly clean and well equipped. The owners' hospitality was outstanding with many complimentary provisions. There were delicious pastries and breads, meats, cheese and wine for us when we arrived. Helena and Henrique could not have done more for us. The balcony has great views over the sea and the port. Interesting watching the cruise ships come and go. The lovely private pool for the apartments is quiet. Such a comfortable place to stay and great location close to the old town and the cable car. Lots of great restaurants in this area are only a few minutes walk away. It's a bit of a steep climb back to the apartment, though good for working off the calories. December is a brilliant time to visit Funchal. The Christmas decorations along the promenades are amazing. We used the excellent recommended taxi for airport transfers. Very prompt and friendly service. We would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation is giving Nora Bay five stars.
