Best location, beautiful apartment and view !

  • 5 of 5

Cannot express how great this apartment is! Our first time in Madeira, in celebration of our 40 anniversary. We had a recommendation (regarding owner), and Miguel took care of our stay, without worry. The apartment was beautiful, and the location...was unbeatable! If we wanted a walk on the marina...across the street. Hop on bus... across the street. Park, winery, restaurants, groceries, gelato, Massuse, art gallery... right there! It was unbelievable. We were across from the marina and port, and not only did we enjoy the balcony view, but any water tours were right there. Walking distance to the cable cars and old town (which we visited and explored often). Because of this location we combed the streets and events in Funchal with effortless walking, (and the hop on hop off bus tours). Miguel also took us on his jeep tour. We saw places that many tourists likely do not get to. The tour was interesting, informative, and so much fun! We met 4 other lovely people (that he matched us up with perfectly). You can't go to Funchal without going on Miguels' Jeep Tour!! It's a must!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the wonderful words, it was a pleasure to welcome you to my apartment, especially since it was your first time in Madeira. You are absolutely right, the apartment is in a fantastic location allowing you to enjoy all that Funchal has to offer, more central is impossible. The balcony landscape of the apartment then is simply wonderful, where we can see the parades of flowers, the carnival parade, fireworks at the end of the year and now even during the month of June, every Saturday, we can contemplate the fire of synchronized with music (every Saturday will be a different country). I am very glad that you liked the jeep ride and had fun, I loved showing you the real Madeira Island. Thank you very much and hope to see you both soon again.

Lovely apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, well equipped, comfortable and safe. Wrap around balcony. Terrific location overlooking the promenade, harbour and marina with main street running parallel with restaurants, shops and lovely park. Easy 15 minute stroll to old town with loads of restaurants, bars, shops and great atmosphere. Plenty of other restaurants in side streets up from the main road.....but no disturbance from any of these. Local buses and tour buses from promenade. Also cable car up to Monte, the Monte Palace gardens (beautiful), the Botanical Gardens and the toboggan (basket) rides down the streets (you have to do it at least once) If you’re up for a jeep tour there are commercial ones available but ask the owner Miguel about his. Full/half day in a vintage army jeep. No frills but big buzz and he knows all the short cuts, alternative viewing points, lunch and drinks stops where the tour buses etc don’t go. This was our first visit to Madiera and consider ourselves lucky that the owner Miguel was our first contact there. He’s a really cool guy. Personable, funny, genuine. His love for Madiera is very obvious and he is a mine of information. Clearly cares about his clients and wants you to love Madiera the way he does. We will definitely be going back....just sorry we left our first visit until our sixties.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comment, I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay and were curious about more adventures and discoveries, especially since it was your first time in Madeira. Even more pleased I stayed, because you both liked the apartment during your visit and you are right, the apartment is in a great location, very comfortable and has a suberba landscape that is changing day after day lol, when I am in the apartment, I never get tired of the sight . Thank God you liked my Jeep tour :) , I love my Island and I love sharing it with my clients, and at the end of the day I wish everyone to have the same feeling as me . My jeep tours are done in a relaxed, personalized way and off the tourist routes. The route I take with my clients is the same as when I have family or friends with No Crowds - away from the "touristy" packs and car convoys, and huge groups. Hope to see you again soon. Thank you

Super appartement pour un superbe séjour

  • 5 of 5

Cet appartement est tout simplement parfait pour découvrir Funchal et l’ile de Madère. Nous y avons séjourné 3 semaines et nous nous y sommes sentis comme à la maison et très en sécurité. L’appartement était impeccable à notre arrivée et tout était conforme à la description et aux photos de l’annonce et même mieux encore, particulièrement la grande terrasse où nous avons passé de très bons moments à regarder le ballet des arrivées et départs des bateaux de croisière, des voiliers, catamarans, etc. En plus l’appartement est super bien situé. Nous n’avions qu’à sortir de l’appartement pour trouver une pâtisserie de l’autre côté de la rue, un centre d’achats avec un supermarché à environ 3 minutes à pied, des taxis et des autobus, plein de restaurants, la promenade en bord de mer au pied de l’appartement et surtout la place principale de Funchal et son magnifique jardin municipal à quelques pas seulement. Nous avons également pu profiter d’un stationnement privé intérieur pour notre voiture de location. Notre hôte, Miguel, nous attendait à notre arrivée pour nous accueillir et nous donner de précieux conseils pour la visite de son île. Il a été d’une grande gentillesse, toujours de bonne humeur, toujours disponible pour répondre à nos questions ou nous aider comme par exemple s’occuper de nous réserver des taxis pour l’aéroport. En plus c’est un guide hors pair pour visiter son île car il organise des excursions en 4x4 hors des sentiers touristiques pour nous montrer le vrai Madère. Nous avons eu le bonheur d’effectuer une excursion avec lui et cela restera un de nos souvenirs les plus précieux de notre séjour à Madère. Alors c’est avec plaisir que je recommande l’appartement de Miguel à tous ceux et celles qui voudront découvrir cette belle île. J’espère qu’un jour nous aurons la chance d’y retourner.

Deux québécoises enchantées de leur séjour.

Renée et Diane.

Owner's Response: Un grand merci pour le commentaire positif sur votre séjour, c'était un plaisir de vous avoir dans mon appartement et de vous accueillir pour la première fois sur l'île de Madère. Je suis très heureux que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour pendant les 3 semaines et que vous vous soyez senti chez vous, c'est le plus grand compliment que j'ai pu recevoir. L'appartement est très confortable et calme, il ne semble pas être au centre de la ville.Vous avez raison, l'emplacement de l'appartement est excellent, proche de tout et avec une vue magnifique, étant possible de voir depuis le balcon les feux d'artifice en Juin , chaque samedi et la fin de l'année, ainsi que regarder assis, confortablement dans l'appartement à la parade du carnaval et défilé de fleurs, même merveilleux, difficile de transmettre même le sentiment. Encore une fois, merci pour votre commentaire et votre sympathie et je vous attends, pour plus d'aventures en 4x4, l'île de Madère a une immensité à découvrir. Merci :) ............................................................................................................ Response in English: Many thanks for the positive comment about your stay, it was a pleasure to have you in my apartment and to welcome you for the first time on Madeira Island. I am very glad that you have enjoyed your stay during the 3 weeks and have felt at home, it is the highest compliment I could receive. The apartment is very comfortable and quiet, nor does it appear to be in the center of the city. You are right, the location of the apartment is excellent, close to everything and with a wonderful view, being possible to see from the balcony the fireworks in June , every Saturday and the end of the year, as well as watching sitting, comfortably in the apartment to the carnival parade and flower parade, even wonderful, difficult to even convey the feeling. Once again, thank you for your comment and sympathy and I will be waiting for you, for more adventures in 4x4, the Island of Madeira has an immensity to discover. Thank you :)

Perfect location and view

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time using home away and our first visit to Madeira. We found Miguel's apartment on the site and thought it looked perfect for us. We were reluctant to book as there were no reviews and Miguel was new to the site. Miguel answered all our questions and relieved our anxieties through several emails. He was at the apartment to greet us and gave us a full orientation to the building,apartment and surrounding area. The apartment is as shown and the views from the wrap around balcony is amazing. We were able to watch the carnival parade,cruise ship arrivals and some spectacular sunrises all from the comfort of the apartment. The apartment is well equipped for cooking,spacious, and convenient to shops and supermarkets.

Miguel you are a great host and we look forward to our return to Madeira and your apartment.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your positive comment, it was a pleasure to welcome you to my apartment, for the first time on Madeira Island. Close by, you can find one of the best restaurants in Funchal "Combatentes", among others. You are absolutely right, the balcony landscape of the apartment is divine, you can even see the fireworks in June and the end of the year and the flower and carnival parades. And even being in the center of town, within walking distance of all tourist attractions the apartment is completely insonarised, you can not hear the normal noises of a city, it is very quiet. The apartment is great for relaxing after an active day exploring Madeira Island. Thank you very much and for the next year, we will meet again.

Madeira - Trauminsel für einen abwechslungsreichen Entspannungs- und Aktivurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Die Insel des ewigen Frühlings - oder die Blumeninsel, wie sie auch genannt wird - ist ein Paradies für Menschen die eine lebendige Altstadt (Funchal) mit vielen kleinen urigen Restaurants lieben, wo man abends draußen essen kann. Für Menschen, die gerne durch die engen Straßen der Innenstadt bummeln, um sich in den kleinen Geschäften inspirieren zu lassen (unendlich viele Ideen aus Kork). Unbedingt sollte man mit der Seilbahn auf den Monte (Tropical Palacegarden, Korbschlittenfahrten zumindest einmal zusehen) und weiter mit der 2. Seilbahn zu dem phantastischen botanischen Garten schweben.

Die unendlich vielen Möglichkeiten zu wandern (Levadawanderungen) darf man nicht vergessen. Auto mieten! Etwas wärmere Kleidung für die Berge und Regenschutz nicht vergessen. Wer auf höhere Temperaturen und Badestrände spekuliert und gar nicht gerne wandert, sollte sich aber ein anderes Urlaubsziel aussuchen.Die Temperaturen im Mai lagen bei sehr angenehmen 18 - 21 Grad.

Das Apartment liegt mit genialem Blick von der großzügigen Terrasse auf den Hafen sehr zentral. Nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß in die Innenstadt. Wie oft haben wir auf der Terrasse gefrühstückt und abends dort bei einem Glas Rotwein gesessen. Das Apartment ist gut eingerichtet mit vollständiger Küche (bis auf eine fehlende 2. Pfanne), Schlafzimmer, Wohnzimmer, Bad. Es gibt auch eine Waschmaschine und eine Geschirrspülmaschine. Wichtig war auch ein Garagenplatz in der großzügigen Garage.

Der Vermieter Miguel hat uns sehr freundlich begrüßt und mit vielen wichtigen Tips versorgt. Er war täglich für uns per Messenger oder Whatsapp erreichbar. Auch die Anfahrt und Rückfahrt (morgens um 04:00 Uhr) zum Flughafen mit Taxi zum Sonderpreis hat er perfekt arrangiert.

Das einzig Negative waren die zu harten Matratzen! Miguel hat uns versprochen elastische Topper zu kaufen, die auf die Matratzen aufgelegt werden können, um den Schlafkomfort zu erhöhen.

Wir kommen gerne wiede!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive comment. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Madeira. You are absolutely right, Funchal is charming with lots to do and to visit and with lots to discover. As far as the mountain is concerned, it is always better to be warned, because if there is a low weather pressure, the climate can condition the mountain peaks. Usually throughout the year, even in winter, in the mountains, it can be quite hot and blue skies, however, this week the weather was very unstable in countries near Africa (Madeira, Canary Islands and Cape Verde), it was only good climate, in the north of Europe, strangely, is not normal ... today, as I write this comment, the climate is already back to normal :). Here in Madeira, during the winter, we usually have the warm winds coming from Morocco, that is, if the weather in Africa is good lol the weather lately goes crazy hehehehe if it is snowing in North Africa, instead of warm hot winds, we will have fresh winds. .. in the last month of January, we had temperatures on the order of 24C, the whole month. About my apartment, I am very happy that you and your wife have enjoyed your stay and in relation to the location you are absolutely right, more central is impossible. Regarding the balcony landscape of the apartment, you are absolutely right, it is wonderful ... and even the apartment being in the center of the city, it is very quiet and relaxing, the apartment is very well soundproofed, it seems that we are not in the center of town, close to everything. Regarding mattresses, I mean they are brand new and it is always hard to please every customer, but I will buy an Elastic Topper to offer additional comfort to future customers;). But it was the first time someone approached me about the beds, everyone always said they slept very well, but I will follow your advice and I will buy an elastic topper for extra comfort. Good idea. Thanks again, I hope to see you soon ...
