The car park, which is within the apartment block, is also a real bonus, as is the free wifi. The apartment also has a lovely balcony offering great views, exactly like the photo in the advert. We enjoyed breakfast out here every day and often had dinner there too. There's information in the apartment for tourist attractions, transport etc. Communication with the owner before and on arrival was very prompt and reliable. We were met by a friendly and helpful manager who showed us around the property and gave us useful advice. The apartment is excellent value for money. We would definitely recommend it and would stay here again if we return to Madeira. Many thanks for everything - we had a great holiday!

Although we experienced some rain it was relaxing to stay in the villa overlooking the ocean. We found the scenery spectacular and managed to see a lot of the island. A welcome relief from the British winter! We hope to return again .

It lives up to its photographs and descriptions - and some! Clean, comfortable, top quality and stylish - and Glenys and Gary always made sure that we had everything we needed. The location was perfect for exploring the island - super walking easily accessible, local shopping and good food in Ribeira Brava and just a short drive to Funchal for shops, restaurants, markets, culture, magical gardens - and much more.
