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.

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!

Spacious apartment in great location with super view

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!

ALL is GREAT: location, apartment, view, owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2.5 months, two families with kids.

The apartment location is perfect: it is right on the great ocean promenade that stretches towards the center of Funchal. This is perfect for walks with baby buggy. And it is easy to get in and out via the ground floor parking (owners provide the key) and the apartment complex has two good elevators in each block. There is also a supermarket and several restaurants right in the apartment complex. If you need more - large Forum shopping center as well as banks, car rental, various shops is just 5 minutes up the street. There is also the bus stop right near the building, and another one on Estrada Monumental street (near Forum shopping center) with buses to the city center (10 mins), other locations of Funchal and to the airport (airport bus stops there). So great promenade to the left, stairs to the pools and underground passage to Formosa beach to the right when you leave the apartment. Or you can use the elevator and exit to the internal yard and then enter the supermarket and restaurants right form there.

Apartment is really spacious and clean, equipped with all you need. Wireless Internet, TV, local phone - all is in place. Kitchen, bathrooms, furniture - all are in very good condition. The greatest feature is that living room and one bedroom is connected to the large balcony with ocean, beach and mountain views - absolutely million dollar view! Another rooms and kitchen also have large balcony with the view to the city and ocean, it is lit with sun during the morning and noon.

Joe and Nelson provided everything to make our stay comfortable and easy. From the initial contact, email communications and payment. Also, we requested a few additional items like a crib and high chair for kinds and owners have found them and provided for us - we are very thankful for their care and hospitality.

We really would like to return next year!
