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.

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!

We stayed for a month in this very spacious, well located apartment. Ideal for access to the promenade for walks. Close to supermarkets and shops. Superb view from balcony and with a balcony each side of the apartment you are able to enjoy sun morning, afternoon and evening. Highly recommended apartment on a beautiful island.

Property in a lovely quiet location away from the bustle of Funchal centre.

Views from the apartment particularly at sunset spectacular.

Lovely walk along the promenade into town 45mins.

Bus leaves every 20 mins from in front of the apartment . Journey time to Funchal centre 15 mins.

Supermarket and some fine resturants minutes from the apartment.

Apartment bright and spacious.

Joe and Nelson very helpful with any queries that arose.

The fact that we have already booked a further week in December says it all.

Rental property in Funchal!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is all what the pictures show. I stayed here with my brother in law and two sisters. It was centrally located, and easy to get to places either by walking, taking a bus, or a cab. Nelson met us at the apartment on the day of our arrival, and explained everything to us in great detail. The owner was also very nice and answered all my questions in a very timely matter. I would highly recommend this property! The view is gorgeous also!
