You can never get everything that you want, but this property literally had everything and more! It was immaculate and a large "Smart TV" to top it off for the children who were able to watch Net flicks etc. The unheated swimming pool was perfectly located and we spent lots of time there as our neighbours were all friendly and considerate. Access to the pool was by a fob which was a bit of a pain, but at least we felt safe and secure at all times. The location was also perfect as the walk into town was only 10-15 minutes, but depending on how much food you ate meant a tougher walk uphill coming back! Great exercise though as those hills were testing. The local supermarket is close, but the hill coming back was too much for my other half, so we only did that on the first night! We found other supermarkets nearby which meant an easier walk back to the apartment or taxi's at times. Funchal itself is a beautiful place and you can do as much or as little as you want to. Food is fairly expensive whereas beer was very reasonable and cheap most of the time. Our food recommendations will be in trip adviser. Tony our host was excellent and did his best to advise us on how best to get around etc. He also ensured that we had some essentials in the fridge to get us up and running, together with arranging a taxi to pick us up and drop us back to the airport. We cannot thank him enough. Great guy. Funchal gets full marks from us especially this superb apartment and again, thank you Tony.

The apartment was first class and had everything you could wish for. Peter answered questions promptly and even arranged our taxi transfers. We will return to Madeira next year as we fell in love with the island and very friendly people.
