We had an excellent week in Funchal! David & Manuela had arranged a taxi to pick us up at the airport which made getting to the apartment very easy. David met us and showed us around the apartment which was immaculate, and the photographs on the web page show it very well. It had everything we needed for our stay, comfortable beds, great kitchen, and the balcony overlooking the sea and the pool below was perfect for eating outside or just relaxing.
We swam in the lovely pool as often as we could, especially after a day out walking, a great way to cool down before eating.
There are plenty of shops nearby for essentials plus a great bakery/tea room (the Petit Fours) with bread and delicious cakes!
It is only about a 15 minute walk into the centre of Funchal or there are plenty of buses/taxis.
If only we could have stayed longer, we had such a great time. David & Manuela were perfect hosts. We would really recommend this apartment.
Immaculate spacious apartment with everything you need. Lovely location if you want a 2bed apartment in Funchal you can't do better than this
This is very traditional apartment with a hint of former glamour in great location with amazing views from terrace. We have had very comfortable stay there. Apartment is within walking distance to centre. Bus stops are close by, too. It is worth getting prepaid ticket, which are like Oyster card and sold in booths near cable car station.
We would have, though, appreciated a couple more towels and another set of keys. My pet hate are stained carpets in bedrooms which, I guess, were destroyed by people not taking their shoes off. No amount of cleaning is ever going to clean cream carpets. Also single bed in spare bedroom is a bit too narrow, although my husband being 6'5 said his bed in main bedroom was a bit wider. He loved his shower room, which was pure luxury and very Hollywood. Other bathroom is fine,too and water pressure in both was excellent.
Our communication with Manuela was faultless and even when she was abroad, she checked whether we arrived ok.
The only problem we had, and I stress that definitely is not Manuela's fault, was "in house" taxi driver and his friend. We booked trip to Santana, but did not want to do the whole day 10m-5pm, just max.4hours. Driver decided where to take us and the whole trip lasted 3,5h and we were asked to pay full day price. Our arguing that price for the whole trip has to be calculated on base of time/km/petrol was not accepted and we were told, that "that's not how it is here". We do recommend to inquire about prices before going anywhere by taxi , which we did not, because we trusted driver. Obviously we felt ripped off.
The apartment was in the most amazing location, right in the middle of everything. So comfortable, you couldn't ask for anything more. Great terrace, with lovely views, everything clean & sparkling. Highly recommonded
We were met at the apartment by Manuela, who showed us all the facilities and gave us some good advice on places to eat and shop, etc. This wonderful apartment is spacious, very clean and well-maintained, with a terrific view of the Atlantic and the swimming pool. We used the pool every day and were always able to get sun-beds, often having the pool area to ourselves. There are many restaurants within easy walking distance, and we particularly enjoyed the Casa Madeirense and Casal da Penha. Whale watching with Windbirds and afternoon tea at Reid's Place were highlights of our holiday.
We really enjoyed our 2 week stay in this beautiful apartment.
-- ideal location in a "central" location right next to Reid's Hotel.
-- we hired a car but I'd regard it as optional as buses run from nearby into Funchal centre and to Lido area.
-- lovely, sizeable terrace with a great ocean view (as well as a pool/garden view).
-- apartment had just about everything we needed for cooking etc.
-- very nice pool.
The apartment is well situated at the town end of the Estrada Monumental, next to Reid's Hotel. It is within easy walking distance of many restaurants, shops, banks and is on a main bus route.
