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.

Spacious & everything you could possibly require from a holiday home. Definite home from home. Decorated beautifully for Christmas with a tree & all other welcomeing extras. Even dressings gowns were available. Wonderful outside space with views over the sea & very secure. Mirela. Who,looked after us, could not have been more helpful. Raphael, our taxi driver, who was recommended by Karen & Mike the owners, (who were online to help us if necessary, friendly & easy to deal with.) He was there the greet us at the airport & was extremely helpful when our departure flight was cancelled. To be honest there is always a down side when writing a review, which was we only booked a week & it should have been two.
