Other than being hard to find, everything about the apartment was great. It was remodeled to a high standard, large apartment, great views and deck, intro food, large shower. Great location, walkable restaurants, pharmacy, grocery. Super local neighborhood. Parking garage.
Heads up; Manager did have an add-on cost paid in cash on site. Regardless of amount or reason for this charge, it should be have been included in the VRBO quote or in the contract.
Thanks for the five stars! However, we would beg to differ that the apartment is hard to find, as there are two turnings between it and the airport. The additional charge is a local eco-tax applied by the Santa Cruz municipality to fund various environmental projects - as it is only €1 per adult per day, but only for the first five days, it is impossible to configure in the HomeAway "extras".
Delightful January fornight
Smashing time in great appRtment particularly the rooftop terrace
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The roof terrace is very popular as it has sun all day and is very spacious.
We have only just arrived back after a wonderful holiday in Garajau.
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.
We look forward to seeing you again!
The apartment was has described first class in our opinion would certainly recomend it ,
We hired a car to see the island motorway very easy to drive on abit hilly when on minor roads visit to Monte with a tabbogan run is a must very reasonable to eat out ,the apartment was excellent the agent peter was excellent gave us directions from airport easy 15minutes and straightforward the owner also excellent and very easy going supplied a few basics items when we arrive. Garajau is good base to see the island
Agreed - Garajau is a great base to tour from.
Home from home
Excellent booking communication and met promptly at apartment and shown around by owners. Beautiful new apartment, tastefully decorated with quality furnishings and all home comforts provided. Loads of towels, bedding, kitchen equipment etc.
The location is great for an authentic Madeira holiday away from the large tourist hotels. There are a number of typical Madeiran eateries within 5 minutes walk - particularly worthy of mention is Cafe Neptune where you can get a lovely meal with wine and coffee for £20 for two.
The bus service into Funchal takes around 20 mins and runs approx half hourly, so getting around the island without a car is not a problem. There are a few local places to visit within walking distance - Canico, Canico de Baixo and Cristo Rei statue and cable car.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone looking for a restful holiday on the beautiful island of Madeira.
Thank you for the recommendation!
Wonderful apartment and owner!
Can't fault this apartment! We arrived late due to delays and the owner was waiting to meet us. She had left us lovely bowl fresh fruit, local cake and cookies and was charming. The apartment is lovely with lots of space outside to relax. The terrace is extremely private and the views are amazing. Not far from airport but far enough not to hear or see and planes. Easy to get around and the local shops cater for all needs. Madeira Island direct were brilliant and answered all questions we had. A truly relaxing holiday and great find!
We are delighted you enjoyed yourselves!
