About Jan Hansen
My name is Jan Hansen and I'm from Denmark and the owner and property manager here in Madeira and have lived here for over 30 years and I think it is the best place in Europe. No winter, not too hot in summers, safe, very little crime, beautiful nature with fantastic mountains, good food, not too crowded with tourists and we can swim in the pool or in the sea all year round, what more do you want in life !
Jan Hansen purchased this Apartment in 2001

A great apartment with wonderful views
Our stay at the apartment overlooking Praia Formosa could not have been more enjoyable. We were met by Jan in reception after a short stroll from the Aerobus stop at the entrance to the complex ,taken up to fourth floor and introduced to the fabulous views of the ocean and the pool area. The accommodation was clean and very comfortable, as being enormous,and the pool was excellent, particularly since almost no one used it other than us!
The 24 hour reception was a reassuring presence if any emergency had occurred and the communal areas including the lifts were spotlessly clean.
We very much enjoyed being a couple of miles west of the busier parts of Funchal although the closure of the tunnels and beach walkway forced us to access the city via the steps of the
adjacent Travessa. (Good for the heart).
The promenade towards Camara was always a pleasant walk, with the cafe prices being considerably cheaper than the Lido or Cathedral areas and the amazing Restaurante by the Sea was
unchanged from our visit 3 years earlier - still serving some of the best (and cheapest fish) in Funchal.
All in all a genuine 5 star recommendation

Thank you for your SUPER 5 STAR REVIEW !!!
We really appreciate it and it most be the longest
review that we ever received from our guests !!
You are welcome back at any time !
Thanks again and kind regards
The photos do not do this spacious and beautiful apartment justice. It is a lot bigger than it appears. Everything you could want, totally spotless. Master bedroom and en-suite are just fab. Then waking up to that stunning view, wow. Having both balconies is great, watching the sunsets each evening. Jan was great meeting us upon arrival, letting us know where local restaurants were etc. Madeira is just beautiful. Would definitely recommend this apartment. We will definitely come back
Thank you for your fantastic 5 STAR REVIEW !! See you again in 2020 !
Fantastic apartment in a great location
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely and spacious apartment. Lovely views from both of the large balconies. Apartment very comfortable with everything that you can ask for to hand. Pool great and proximity to the sea cannot be beaten.
Jan was very helpful - all aspects of our booking and stay were excellent. Can recommend this apartment without any reservations.
Anyone booking can use the Airport Bus as it takes you from the Airport door to the apartment entrance (last stop) and costs just 8 euros return.
Eating places within easy walking distance. Shopping centre quite close but like most of Madeira you have to climb uphill to reach it (through the cave is best).
We will certainly book this apartment again when we next visit Madeira which we certainly will do.
Thank you for your SUPER 5 STAR review ! We really appreciate it and you are welcome back at any time ! Kind regards Jan
Spacious apartment with two spacious balconies with great views over the shore. The apartment is very comfortable with everything you could need. The Aerobus from the airport calls at the apartment and is only 5 euros however, the location of the apartment makes a car essential in my opinion. The owner was very responsive and helpful. Would highly recommend.
Thank you very much for your 5 STAR REVIEW !! We really appreciate it and hope many future guests will read this and understand what a fantastic beach apartment we have here in Funchal. You are welcome back !
Thanks again and kind regards
Nice property. Wonderful location with good views.
Shame the coastal path has been destroyed by a storm.
Thank you very much for your nice review and the coastal path
is open again this week and will be renewed as the local Funchal council do every year. We are glad you liked our beach apartment and you are welcome back at any time !
Hiking trip to Madeira during 'helmet' month
My wife and I spent a week at the apartment at the beginning of June the locals call it the 'helmet' month as there are low level clouds that hit the peaks most of the day. It is still pleasantly warm and if you climb high enough the views are stunning.
The apartment was a great base of operations for our trips out into Madeira, and it had pretty much everything you need in a self catering apartment.
The Aerobus from to airport stop directly outside the apartment block (it is at the end of the line so you cannot miss it).
Buses into Funchal are a 5 minute walk away as well as the local greengrocer. A larger supermarket in a shopping complex is a 20 minute walk down the promenade. Note: When we were there the local authorities were still repairing the promenade after storm damage in early 2018.
Jan was great as he answered all questions fast and left us to our holiday.
Hi again ! Thank you for your nice review and we are glad you liked our beach apartment and you are welcome back at any other month here in sunny Madeira ! Today SUN all day and not a cloud in the sky !
Thanks again and kind regards
The location of the Madeira hotel apartment is in the West Funchal after Lido in front of Shopping Centre FORUM MADEIRA down on the beach. The resort has direct beach access from the swimming pool. You can walk a long the beach Promenade with several bars / restaurants and a German bakery. In the area from a radius of 1 km more than 100 shops and 100 restaurants. One of the ONLY locations with private owned beach apartments in Funchal.
A Unique location !
Local bus near by and taxi's from hotel reception.
