Steve and Jan
The bungalow was delightful and very well equipped. We were very comfortable both inside and out, with a great choice of seating areas for breakfast, dinner and drinks. The balcony overlooking the harbour was particularly lovely and a fantastic place to view the firework display in the harbour.
Louise was most welcoming and helpful, and it is such a benefit having her available so close.
We walked down into Funchal each day but you may need to use the buses or a taxi to get back at the end of the day.
All in all a wonderful relaxing holiday.
Dear Steve & Jan
Thank you so much for your great review of The Cottage, it was such a pleasure to welcome you both here and get to know you a little, we are so glad you had a good experience staying at Number 15 and that you enjoyed Madeira Island!! Best Wishes, Louise.
Great property, exactly as described. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Had a great holiday, lots to do from cable cars to whale watching. Would definitely recommend.
fabulous view from terrace
We enjoyed thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The view from the terrace was beautiful at breakfast time and as the sun went down.
Easy walk into town but not so easy on the way back!
Thank you for your help and advice Lourdes - your restaurant recommendations were great.
Beautiful cottage in a great location up the hill from downtown Funchal
My wife and I spent 25 days in March in this clean and comfortable cottage. Louise, the owner, and Lourdes,the caretaker were very accommodating during our stay without infringing on our privacy. The cottage was a large enough space that we never felt cramped even during bad weather periods. It was well equipped to meet all our needs with a balcony up a flight of stairs that had a phenomenal 360 degrees view of Funchal. It is a fairly easy 15 minute walk downtown and 5 euro taxi ride back up from the supermarket.
A warm welcome in Funchal
Stayed in this spotlessly clean apartment for a week in February, and, although the weather was not very warm, the welcome from Louise was!
The information she provided on arrival helped us to enjoy Funchal from the start. The apartment was well appointed and the bed extremely comfortable. It was an easy walk down to Funchal - and by the end of the week seemed a lot easier on the steep climb back, although taxis were very accessible and cheap when carrying shopping.
The restaurant recommendations Louise gave were spot on and she was amazingly helpful when our flight home was delayed.
Thanks so much, always a pleasure to help, shame the weather was not so kind you you but hopefully you still got to see & do lots! Thanks again, Louise.
Wonderful apartment that we will be returningto
We had a wonderful stay in The Cottage. We are frequent users of self catering accommodation both abroad and in the UK and this property was the best we've ever stayed in. It was very well equipped and immaculately cleaned. Every need was catered for. We spent many hours on the sun terrace overlooking the city and harbour, usually with a cool beer or glass of wine! Ideal location for exploring Funchal, on foot or using local taxis. We hired a car and soon got used to the very steep roads and tunnels . Both botanical gardens were beautiful and well worth a trip on the cable car to Monte or by car. Also not to miss is Funchal market with a huge range of fruit and vegetables and spectacular flowers. Louise and Raul were the perfect hosts, helpful with information about the local area and so friendly and obliging and made us feel at home from the first day. Must also mention Lourdes who works so hard to keep everywhere so lovely and it was a pleasure to chat with her each day. All in all a fantastic holiday and we'll be returning next year
The cottage is a perfect base to explore Funchal and the surrounding areas. It takes about 10 to15 minutes to walk down to the centre of Funchal where you will find the cable car to Monte, 'zona Velha' the old town, museums, quaint streets filled with cafe´s & boutiques and the Old Blandy Wine lodge. There is a small supermarket, cafe & cash machine near by and in Funchal there´s a wide choice of places to eat & shop. If you are not driving there are regular bus service´s & taxis available. Down at the harbour there are daily trips for whale & dolphin watching, Marlin fishing and in the 'Old town' there´s the swimming complex 'Barreirinha' where you can access the sea to swim. Palheiro Golf & gardens, Levada walks & the Botanical & Monte Palace Tropical Gardens are just a few of the attractions that can be reached within 10 minutes by car or public transport. If you have a car this is an ideal base from which you can explore the rest of the island as the motorway 'via rapida' and all main routes are just minutes away however, a car is not essential. This is a quiet, safe & friendly neighborhood.
