Overview

Funchal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sutio-apartment T1 type, with balcony. Accommodates 2 persons.

This light and cosy studio-apartment is a newly renovated one-bedroom-flat with two large beds, a complete bathroom, a well-equipped kitchenette and a very comfortable living-room. A sofa-bed allows a third person to stay comfortably at this apartment.

It also has a very pleasant balcony with sea view and a private garage. This modern apartment has a great location: just in the centre of the Lido touristic area.

From its terrace you have wonderful views of the mountains and of the sea. There is a solarium and a small swimming-pool.

On the ground floor there is a nice restaurant, an embroidery shop and a mini market where you can find fresh fruits, drinks and a lot of other things. Furthermore, you have a wide range of restaurants, rent-a-cars, shops, banks, post office, souvenir stores and pubs in the area.

You also have access to the sea and to swimming-pools within a very short distance and for a reasonable price.

Right in front of the building there is a very well served bus stop, in case you want to go to the town centre, on a tour (yellow and red bus lines) or if you’re interested in getting the Aerobus to the airport. You will also find a taxi stand at a 2 minutes walking.

If you enjoy walking, it will take you about 30 minutes to get to the town centre and the Lido seaside promenade is just 5 minutes’ walk away from the apartment. While walking you can appreciate beautiful gardens and sights.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Guests are invited to ARRIVE NOT BEFORE 13.00 hours and DEPART UNTIL 11.00 hours.

Please contact us if a different schedule for arrival/departure is needed.

Home away from home.. in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this apartment 9 months before our arrival. As I wanted to secure our flights I decided to book it early. When we arrived from the airport via the SAM bus system, it left us in front of the AVIS Counter. Lo and behold the owners, Ana and Mario were waiting for us and helped us with our bags. It was a pleasant surprise . Ana explained all the conveniences, how the appliances worked, garbage drop off etc. We had use of the garage as well which is an excellent convenience.

The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The pictures posted are exactly what you get. The kitchen is small/compact but has all the features with the exception of an oven and dishwasher. There is a combo microwave. It was well equipped and served our purposes.The bedroom was very comfortable with single beds. We had lots of storage. I found the beds very comfy. At no time were we ever cold as there were sufficient blankets to keep us warm. In fact I took two off as it was too warm.

The living room/dining area is sufficient. For a couple and one child this would work well. We enjoyed the convenience of having the WIFI to keep in touch with family. The TV had a lot of channels so there was a large variety of English ones to choose from.

The first two pictures you initially see on the webpage, are from the 7th floor terrace which has a pool. As it was December/January we didn’t go to the pool but did take in the views. Simply stunning.

The location of the apartment is about a 3 km walk from the City Centre. It sounds like a lot but we did it in 40 minutes one way. It’s a wonderful stroll at night, especially during the Christmas/New Years season as the city is transformed with lights. It’s about a 15 minute walk from Reids Palace and 30 minute or so from the Casino which is on the main road; it all depends on how fast you walk. There is a trail close by that takes you to Camara Dos Lobos, a pleasant walk along the waterfront. It will take you to a black beach via a tunnel made for people to get to it. There are 2 Pingo Doces (Supermarkets). One is just down the street. It’s quite large and has seafood and butcher counters. The smaller one is just west of the apartment and served our needs quite well. There is a bakery close by as well as many many restaurants. So many that they are actually vying for your business. A gem of a find, we will be back!

Great apartment in Funchal!

  • 4 of 5

My fiance and I stayed in this lovely apartment for a week in December/January. Ana is a great host! She responded to my emails promptly and she was there to greet us and give us a tour of the apartment despite arriving much later than expected (flight delays). She even bought us some welcome gifts such as champagne! The apartment was spacious and we had everything we needed. The location was good. We were able to park the rental car in the building which saved us money on parking. My only complaint is that there is no heating in the apartment but from what I heard from other people, most of the houses/apartments in Madeira don't have heat. Ana provided us with extra blankets so that helped! Also there is not quite enough hot water for the long north american showers I am used to! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Funchal.

Really nice apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We we're warmly welcomed by Ana, really really friendly. Everything was perfectly clean, and it's a big apartment. We even got a few welcome treats, which was really nice. The apartement is fully equipped with all the facilities you'll ever need. Cooking, cleaning, washing, etc.

The swimming pool on the top of the building is really great, perfect views.

The location of the apartment is perfect, right on the main street where there is a lot to do.

We had a great stay, and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to go to Madeira.

EXCELENT APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

We were a couple celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time in Madeira at Varanda Lido

The apartment is so well laid out. Really spacious, very well furnished and extremely clean. it really flows nicely.

We immediately felt right at home. Ana and Mario are excellent hosts. Very helpful when we booked and even contacted us during our stay to know if our holidays were going on well.

We cooked 3 or 4 times and had everything we needed to make nice and quiet meals.

The swimming pool is located on the top of the building and from there we can enjoy a lovely view to the sea and to the mountains.

The comfort we had for a very nice price, definitely contributed to what was an excellent holiday.

We recommend staying in this apartment and we will be back, for sure.

Thank you very much for everything

Regards

Susan & Joe
