Best equiped we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5

We go to Madeira regular and stay for long periods of time generally 8 to 12 weeks and have stayed in various places on this beautiful island. Due to various reasons we could not book our usual apartment so I booked this one with HomeAway on the Internet. We only booked one week initially to see what it was like. The apartment was very clean and tidy, it also had everything needed for home comfort. The bedrooms had nice fitted wardrobes, comfortable beds, black out blinds and was very quiet overlooking the sun set and the Forum gardens. The apartment is in a great location for shopping, restaurants and public transport. The owner was very welcoming and friendly gave us his mobile number in case we had any problems, which we didn't. We have now booked a five week stay in this apartment.

Superb Location and Very Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very beautiful with very good size areas in a fantastic location, is a perfect apartment, clean, comfortable, nicely (and freshly) furnished, fully equipped, the Wi-Fi worked well, the view from the balcony was lovely(sea views), close to shopping, nearby restaurants, grocery store, public transportation stops, and everything else you might need. Convenient to driving to and from the airport, with parking. Mr Duarte was very pleasant to deal with and also accommodating in terms of timing to meet us at the apartment when we first arrived and when we were preparing to leave. We really enjoyed our stay at this property. I would highly recommend it to everyone considering a visit to Funchal, Madeira

Un appartement magnifique avec une vue splendide sur la mer. Très bien situé dans Funchal, tout ou presque se trouve dans les alentours. Shopping, activités nautiques ou simples activités de détentes, on peut faire tout ça a moins d'1km de l'appartement! Ce fut un très bon voyage, et l'accueil des propriétaires fut parfait. Au moindre soucis, ils répondent directement au problème. Ils sont très amicaux et chaleureux.

C'est un endroit ou je reviendrais avec joie!

very pleasant visit

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as described, very clean and well appointed. We could not fault Duarte and his family who did everything possible to make our stay an enjoyable one. My wife has disabilities and Madeira can be daunting because of the steep hills. However she found no problem at this location as there is a lift to the apartment and it is close to shopping and many good cafes and restaurants. Would recommend this apartment.

A clean, spacious and light apartment near centre

  • 5 of 5

We really found ourselves at home in this apartment. It has two beautiful and light nicely furnished bedrooms, two wonderful big bathrooms and spacious kitchen and living room. The kitchen has everything you need and both, kitchen and living room, give access to a wonderful balcony where we used to have breakfast. Moreover, the whole house is full of lovely details provided by the owners who were really interested in making our stay in their house as comfortable as possible - and they got it!They were really helpful and fiendly. Finally, the apartment is close to cafés and a wonderful shopping centre with a supermarket open till late. It is also close to the city centre - a wonderful and entertaining 30 min walk- and to public buses and taxis. I would really recommend this apartment to my friends.

Excelent apartment and zone, with all you need

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is wonderful, with everything that is described on the website. In reality it is much more beautiful than the pictures. Sunrise and sunset are breathtaking. Despite being close to restaurants, bars, shopping center, and several beaches, gardens and playgrounds, the area is quiet and we can rest with comfort and without noise. Duarte and his wife are very friendly and welcoming. We felt like we were at home. The house has everything you might need (lots of utensils in the kitchen, household linen and bath room, beach towels, various types of pillows, very confortable mattresses). Have mosquito nets in all rooms. It is safe for children. Cleaning? Impeccable. Back? Sure. Wait for us next year. Kisses.

Owner's Response: Thanks Concha Flores for your message. We really enjoyed to meet and to receive you in our apartment. You`re very nice and fun, and took good care of our house and flowers. Left everything neat and clean and even offered us flowers. They were very beautiful. We greatly appreciate your gesture.. We miss our English/Spanish/Portuguese trainning. Hope to see you again soon. Meanwhile, we keep in touch by mail and phone. Lots of kisses to all. Fernanda and Duarte.

The apartment is located about 300 meters from the beach and coastline and 50 meters from one of the largest shopping centres in Madeira, the Madeira Forum and in the area of the 5 star hotels of the city. Therefore, the apartment is conveniently located close to supermarkets, shops, service areas, health, entertainment, restaurants and bars. It also has an excellent bakery / pastry shop on the street, about 30 meters away.

Less than 50 meters there are also bus stops that come and go from the city centre of Funchal where buses run at a frequency of 20 to 20 minutes.

If you choose the car rental, the apartment also has private parking space.

Near the apartment there is also a promenade that runs from Lido (1 km away) to the city of Câmara de Lobos (4 km away), where you can walk along the coastline. You can also walk to the centre of Funchal, as they are only about 3 km away and the path is mostly flat.

Near the apartment, has recreational areas such as golf, fishing, diving, beach, mountain, botanical garden, etc.. The festivities celebrating the county's popular saints in May and June

With the advantage of having a view of the sea, as you can see on the pictures. The photos are not the best, but as soon as we are able, we put new
