We chose not to hire a car and the walk from Santa Cruz village to the property is very very steep. We did the walk sometimes twice a day so that we could eat in the town and also swim in the sea and lido, however in the heat of the day it was really a very hard climb! Having said that there were plenty of taxis available in Santa Cruz and the price was very reasonable. The house is very comfortable with WONDERFUL views, at times the noise from the aeroplanes was a problem (6.00am!) but on the other hand during the day we enjoyed watching the planes. At night time it was sometimes too hot, the accommodation would have benefitted from fans in the bedrooms. The balcony was a beautiful place to sit. T This is a magnificently appointed house which was very well equipped and perfect for us - 2 adults with 2 older teenage daughters, I would very much recommend the property.

Great hosts who met us and provided madeira wine, fruit, local bread, ham and cheese on our arrival. Patricia was also really helpful finding me a dentist as my tooth had broken on the journey, plus giving good information on local restaurants we especially liked Lilys in Machico. It is an ideal location for visiting the East of the island and not far to Funchal either. We had a mixed bag of weather, but found if it was grey and raining when we woke up we only had to go down to sea level and further west and the sun would come out. We did have some sunshine every day and managed to go everywhere we wanted to. The log fire was lovely each evening and one of the channels on the TV showed films. Can't wait to return to Madeira again.

She presented the apartment, explained everything you need to know and gave me the keys. Through out the two weeks she messaged to make sure everything was okay. The apartment is delightful and beautiful, really modern and clean with an amazing space, view and a very welcoming and cosy feeling. Everything you need including washing machine, refrigerator, TV, internet etc... The supermarket is about 2 minutes away which is really helpful and you'll find yourself in the beach in less than a five minutes walk Overall it's probably the best apartment for the looks, space and price you will find through out Machico city, the owner is an absolute treat, welcoming you and being there if you need any help. 10/10, i would recommend anyone who is searching for place to stay on the island since you wont find a better place for money or views. Will definitely stay there again as soon as i'm back on the island.
