Also perfect for the second time....

  • 5 of 5

After 2014 we returned for the second time and had lovely 2 weeks in this very nice appartment. With 3 adults ( 68, 66 and 52 years old ) we enjoyed the location including the car we rented from the owners of the appartment. The magnific view from the large balcony with tremendous view over Funchal where we spent nice evenings. Thanks to the great hospitality of the host family. We are sure that it will not be the last time and look forward to coming back soon. Helmut, Margret and Gabriella

Super apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment, large and light with everything you could want for your holiday. There are two outside eating areas, one at the front and one at the back so no matter where the sun is you can find it!

I did not have a car as the apartment is well served by 3 different bus routes and it's only 20 minutes to Funchal. If you hire a car,parking is easy, just outside the door.

Here is the clue as to how much I liked the apartment.....I have booked it for 4 weeks next year!

Duarte and Fernanda, the owners, are charming and helpful. You cannot go wrong if you book this apartment.

A little road noise but the view of Funchal and the harbour makes up for that. Superb daytime and sunset views. Also, there is a little local bar and restaurant just a few metres away and the food and wine are excellent, very cheap, and the owners are very friendly.

Delightful apartment with fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, clean and well maintained with plenty of outside space. This comprised of a large sunny terrace with amazing views over the city and harbor, and also a rear courtyard with BBQ and dining table with plenty of shade.

For us the location was ideal, 2 minutes drive from the expressway and 5 to 10 minutes drive from the city centre. This was just what we wanted, far enough from the centre for a quiet, relaxing break but close enough for convenience. We also found the beds very comfortable.

Duarte was extremely helpful and did a great job of looking after us. I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again and would recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful apartment overlooking Funchal bay

  • 5 of 5

Does the view from the apartment match the pictures ? yes, but it is impossible to take a picture that truly shows how good it is. Perched up high on the hill side with a perfect view of the harbour, you could spend all day watching the world go by, see the cruise ships arrive, watch the local buses weave their way up from town, enjoy sunsets that are spectacular and at night the street lights twinkle.

The apartment is bigger than the pictures show, it has everything you need and more, the owners have included lots of books, dvds, games etc to make your stay trouble free.

During our visit in February the back patio with table and barbecue was first to see the sun and by 10 am the front balcony was lovely and warm, you can sit out without being overlooked.

We used the hire car offered by the owners which included airport transfers and managed to explore the island, the main roads are easy with lots of tunnels but the side roads are narrow and steep, there is not a lot of traffic and parking was easy to find.

You could use the local buses there is a bus stop near the apartment and the fares are reasonable (day or multi day tickets are available) with a regular service. The drivers and passengers are very friendly.

Madeira is very beautiful and we enjoyed shopping in Funchal, and enjoyed some lovely meals at Zarkos (local restaurant) and in Funchal old town.

The owners Fernanda and Duarte were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome.

The apartment is fantastic, the view spectacular and excellent customer service highly recommended.

A perfect place to get away from it all

beautiful view during the day and at night

  • 5 of 5

No description will not give the real beauty of the place both day and night. At this point you feel the joy of life already in the morning while having breakfast on the terrace admiring the panorama of Funchal and views of the ocean and flowing ships. On the other hand toil in the evening after wandering around the island resting on the terrace admiring the sunsets, and even later night view of the capital of Madeira. The views from the terrace as you will find on postcards showing the beauty of both day and night, as well as stickers on the fridge. This is proof that this place is worth to spend many days here that you will remember forever. Location very good, both when you have a car (I recommend renting from the owners) and without a car because as soon as it is near a bus stop (full information about bus lines in the apartment). It's a place that we remember as such where at any moment we would like to get back - so wonderful mornings and evenings on the terrace will remain forever in our memory. It's a wonderful place to recommend to all who wish to experience moments that will remain forever in the memory of holiday memories. Summary: beautiful view, good access, near supermarkets including Pingo Doce food at a price around 10-12 Euro per 2 persons; good restaurants near apartment , convenient location for exploring the island; convenient access to Funchal, good facilities apartment, very comfortable beds. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and at the same time respecting your privacy. We would like to come back as soon as possible.

Perfect apartment and stunning terrace

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week in this amazing apartment overlooking the bay of Funchal. The equipment of the apartment matches the description, but the view from the spacious terrace is absolutely stunning and is actually even better than it looks like on the pictures. Unfortunately the weather in early April was not so perfect to spend evenings relaxing on the terrace, that´s why we hope that we will come back soon. The location of the apartment is also perfect, we could park our car right in front of the door and it is very easy to go to the centre of Funchal. We hadn´t found any drawbacks, this was definitely one of the best vacation rentals we have ever been to.
