Great apartment,excellent location

  • 4 of 5

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.

Wonderful well-maintained apartment

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Very Enjoyable Stay.

  • 5 of 5

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.
