The apartment is luxorious and was fully equipped and very clean. We received a nice " welcome pack" which gave a good clue that these people cared about us having a nice time. Our arranged transfer to and from the airport was excellent as was our greeting at the apartment by Rita. We had a great holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and Madeira.

The apartment has access to a roof terrace which none of the other tenants used, but only a couple of sun loungers in the apartment. Sun all day. The building work was nearby but we were warned about this and the price adjusted to compensate. Everything clean and well presented. Great cafe below and just a short walk into Funchal at night. Recommended for anybody on a budget.
