Central location with peaceful outlook.
Marionella was there to greet us on arrival and showed us where everything was, with useful information about garbage collection (so often missing). The flat is beautifully clean and the 3 bedrooms are adequately proportioned with plenty of cupboards and drawers. Each bedroom also has louvred shutters which can be usefully deployed to shut out strong sun when required. The main bedroom also has a balcony on the sunny side (with two chairs) which we didn't use because it was too hot for us. The other balcony, also with two chairs and table, is situated off the lounge / dining room and overlooks the municipal park. This was a delight to sit on any time of the day and offered excellent people-watching opportunities.
It was a short walk of approximately 5 minutes to the local La Vie supermarket. Also within 5 minutes walk was the Rua da Carreira with a handful of good restaurants ( we went to Espaco four times!). The harbour frontage was also about 5 - 10 minutes walk and again offered a good choice of restaurants. We particularly liked Il Vivaldi.
We used the apartment kitchen facilities for three evening meals but noticed that there was a relative lack of food storage cupboards. Most food items were in a deep saucepan drawer. This was a minor inconvenience but has not detracted from a five star rating for this otherwise excellent property.
We would definitely use this delightful property again but have noticed that it doesn't seem to appear on homeaway.co.uk anymore.
Great location, great parking, very secure, and loved the front balcony
We loved our trip to Madeira!! This was our first trip and the condo’s location and proximity to restaurants and bars in the evening was great. We drove most days to different hiking spots and the condo was very centrally located with easy access to the highway. We enjoyed having an American, drip style coffee pot too!! The bet part was that the owners cousin was there cleaning the place when we arrived and she was great about give us advice/tips on places to eat lunch & dinner and sites to visit around the island; big thank you to her!!
The only constructive criticism I could offer was that the AC didn’t work very well. It seemed to blow out hot air.
Thank you very much for your stay with us.
The air conditioner was deprogrammed. If you had informed us we had corrected.
You’re alaws welcome!
Beautifully positioned property in the centre of Funchal
From start to finish the booking process and organisation of key pick up, apartment walk around was first class. We were welcomed by a lovely young lady who showed us around and we were welcomed with a lovely bottle of Madeira wine as well.
Our party was made up of 6 parties aging from 10 to 70+ and the apartment was perfect for all, based adjacent to the central park. This is close to many restaurants and supermarket and two minutes walk from the harbour itself.
I thoroughly recommend the apartment to any body looking for a central Funchal location, I assure you that you will not be disappointed.
Thankyou very much to Zelia from Susana and family.
Great Apartment - Great Location
This was our third trip to Madeira, and we were looking forward to a downtown location. This was a perfect location, just a 15 minute walk to Old Town, 5 minutes to the harbor, and 1 minute to a bus stop to the Lido area. While we did not drive, a secure parking spot was included. The view of the Municipal Park was always interesting, and the evenings were very quiet. Zelia and Marianela were always available to answer questions and made you feel at home. We spent a month and couldn't be happier with the apartment.
Beautiful apartment close to everything!!!
We loved the apartment, downtown Funchal, within walking distance to everything! Loved the fact that it was a newer apartment with new amenities (elevator, air conditioning, etc) Zelia and her crew were so pleasant, and were very happy to show the apartment and how to operate everything. I would definitely rent this apartment again and would recommend it to anyone who wants to be right downtown within walk in distance to everything!👍🏼👍🏼
Thank you Patricia. You're welcome!
First time in Funchal and we hope to come back
This was our first time in Madeira. Getting from the airport to the apartment was easy and quick. Zelia met us there and answered any questions we had and also gave us some ideas of what to do while in Madeira. She even had a map we could use. The apartment was very clean and beautiful. She even had a crib set up for our little one. The kitchen had all the necessary utensils and items you would need to cook. The dishwasher was a plus. She also has a washing machine and a clothes drying rack. The porch in the front was relaxing with a view of the park. The tv had a variety of channels for both the adults and children.
We had a designated parking space in the garage which was very convenient, so we didn't have to look for parking. Even though the weather was nice, we still used the ac at night. There is a mall you can walk to in a few minutes that has Pingo Doce, a pharmacy, and other shopping. It's in walking distance to Old Town where you will find lots of restaurants and shopping. Blandy's Madeira Winelodge is on the other side of the park where we enjoyed a Madeira wine tour and tasting. We also walked (slightly longer walk, but very scenic along the water) to the teleferico to get to the church in Monte, Jardim Tropical Monte Palace, and we also took a ride down on the basket toboggans. Cristiano Ronaldo's museum is also in walking distance from the apartment. Overall, the apartment was exactly what we expected, Zelia was nice and helpful, and convenient to many activities.
Fernando and his family are very good hosts. They are friendly and take care our apartment.
They are always welcome!
