Guestbook comments from the owner

Mi familia y yo hemos disfrutado mucho de nuestra estadía en Funchal y queremos agradecer la buena disposición del Sr Joe Pinto al recibirnos. El apartamento es hermoso, yo diría fantástico y tiene todo lo que una familia como nosotros, de cuatro adultos y dos niños, puede necesitar.

Los ambientes muy amplios, hermosas vistas al exterior, muy limpio y muy bien equipado. Puedo asegurar que no faltaba nada para sentirnos como en nuestra propia casa.

No dudaremos en volver allí si regresamos a Madeira y en recomendarlo a nuestros amigos.

My family and I have enjoyed our stay in Funchal and we thank the willingness of Mr Joe Pinto to greet us. The apartment is beautiful, I would say fantastic and has everything a family like us, four adults and two children may need. very large environments, beautiful exterior views, very clean and very well equipped. I can assure you that nothing was missing to feel like in our own home.

We do not hesitate to go back there if we return to Madeira and to recommend it to our friends.

So glad we came back

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE Madeira, a beautiful island with very friendly people. And we were so happy to be back in this great apartment. It is in a perfect location, on the water, close to everything you need plus the local bus stops at your door. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby and we tried most of them. Yummy pizza in the complex below but our favorite was Real Canoa for amazing Portuguese food and service. Many mornings we visited the teahouse a five minute walk on the promenade for coffee and pastries. The apartment is very spacious with comfortable beds and lots of linens. We so appreciated the barbeque, the extra table in the kitchen, the large dining room table and the speedy internet and WiFi. We spent quality time on both balconies especially the large one at the front and left our bedroom door open at night to hear the waves splashing on the shore. When a problem came up, the owner responded quickly and efficiently and seemed so happy to help. Thanks Joe and Nelson for everything you did for us and we are definitively planning to return next year.

Lots of room, great location

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful first trip to the beautiful island of Madeira and we were delighted with this apartment. Loved having two balconies and we enjoyed leaving the bedroom door open all night. We just couldn't get enough of the VIEW all day, all night. Great having the BBQ, first time during our 6 winter breaks in Europe. As others have said, you can't beat the location. We went for long walks in both directions and used the bus quite frequently as it stops in front of the apartment. Lots of good places to eat nearby and never too far to go for groceries and supplies. Should mention there is no supermarket in the complex downstairs but we were able to get most of the things we needed in the little individual shops within the complex. Hope to come back to Madeira next year but only if we can stay here so what does that tell you.

Fantastic stay! Fabulous apartment! Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, my family and I had a fantastic stay at Joe Pinto's residence. The location is perfect, buses and cabs neatby, grocery store nearby, restaurants nearby, and The Forum shopping center is right up the street. Nelson met us at the apartment, when we arrived, and the vacation began. This apartment is perfect for a stay in Madeira. Well maintained apartment, ideal location, and a fantastic owner who answers your questions right away. This was our second time staying here, but definitely not our last. Thank you Joe and Nelson!
