A fantastic apartment with great views in a good location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks in a clean and well-maintained 2 bed apartment with a large living/dining area. Having stocked the fridge and arranged a pick-up from the airport, Cath met us at the apartment and gave us a warm welcome. The location is in the hotel district near the Lido and there are simply too many restaurants and bars to mention - all of the best quality, especially the Argentinian steakhouse maybe 50 yards along the road. In general portions are very generous. There are also many local mini supermarkets nearby for the essentials.

The apartment has very fast free WiFi (30 Mbps) as well as a huge TV with over 200 channels, if you really need them! There is a sunroof accessed from the main stairwell and the front/Lido is a mere few hundred yards.

The main town of Funchal is about a 25 minute walk or there are many buses costing just Euro 1.95. There you will find the port/marina/shops and many more bars/restaurants and access to other parts of the island including the cable car - very impressive, if somewhat vertigo inducing. We opted for the number 48 bus from the main road near the apartment to visit Monte and it is a great experience.

We would recommend a visit to all our friends and family - the 2 weeks went too quickly.

Great apartment.....

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment in a super location just out of town. Lots of eateries nearby or the apartment is fully equipped to cook at home.

Cath, the landlord, is lovely and left supplies for our arrival.

Great apartment and host

  • 4 of 5

We were delayed almost 24 hours due to high winds preventing any planes landing but Cath kept in touch my text and reassured us that this was no problem and eventually met us at the apartment spot on (revised) time. We had a few problems with a faulty tv but Cath was quick to find a working replacement- albeit a much smaller one.

The apartment is spacious and well equipped with sea views from the lounge and roof terrace (shared with one other apartment) just one floor up. It is well located in the Lido area with bus stops, restaurants and shops within short walking distance although this inevitably involves hills and steps. The western coastal walkway starts just below the apartment and provides a great stroll to watch the sunset. The underground car parking was a bonus but the access is very steep and best suited to a compact car.

Overall it was a great place to stay.

Great Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very well equipped and well situated. Just 5 minutes walk to the seafront and a great bakery along the road where you can buy all you want for a picnic lunch. I would definitely book this property again.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed 11 weeks in this lovely apartment, which is well appointed with sea views. Cath and Jorge are delightful people who can't do enough to help. We were met at the apartment by Cath who also left a comprehensive Welcome Pack. Cath also keeps the apartment clean every week and indeed everything is spotless. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for a long stay. Funchal is a 35 minute walk away or a 10 minute bus ride the bus stop being outside the apartment. The Lido area is just minutes away down the steps. We enjoyed it so much we have booked for another 12 weeks stay.

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Cath's place is just perfect. It has everything you need when you look for a holiday flat. It is very clean, very comfortable, and the view is stunning. All the complementary goodies were a real surprise and delight.

The flat is in a very good location, easy to go to Funchal with the bus, supermarket 5min walk from the flat, and there is a car-park in the residence which is really convenient as well.

Cath is lovely, and very helpful.

I can highly recommend this place. And I will go back for sure, as I had a great holiday.

Peaceful location with amazing Atlantic views. Situated on the 4th floor of a well-appointed small block of apartments, very airy and with a bright environment you can relax and enjoy the views while being only a short walk from a the well known Lido area, with all the amenities, plenty of restaurants and entertainment or if you like evening stolls we are only 5 minutes from the new promenade and sea water swimming pools with also a children s area... Only a 2 minute walk to a bus stop / 10 minutes by bus to Funchal centre/harbour.
