Overview

Funchal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom sleeping 2 comfortably, close to all amenities and town centre

Situated in the prime tourist area just west of the city of Funchal, in the popular Forum area, this is a spacious well equipped 1 bedroom apartment on the 7th floor. The apartment has twin beds which can be joined to make a large double, a full modern bathroom, spacious lounge with cable TV and DVD player and well equipped kitchen. There is a large south facing balcony with table and chairs, looking out to the ocean where you can sit and soak up the sun. The apartment complex has a large pool which is normally very quiet. Shops, bars and restaurants are all within an easy walk, so too is the promenade where you can walk through gardens to the Lido area or turn west to the well-known rocky inlets and pools at Doco de Cavacas (with a long floodlit tunnel giving access to one of the best local beaches at Praia Formosa). The city centre is a 30 minute walk or very short trip by bus or taxi. Secure parking is available if you wish to hire a car. All towels & linen inc beach towels. Super-fast 30Mbps Wi-Fi broadband was added in April 2013 and the cable TV upgraded to a HD box with a choice of 114 channels.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Unlike 75% of one-bedroom units in this development, this apartment has a prime aspect,with a large balcony facing directly south with ocean views and maximum sun exposure - particularly important in winter when the sun is lower in the sky.

About Madeira Island Direct

Madeira Island Direct have been managing holiday rental properties on the island of Madeira since 2006. We only look after apartments that meet the most exacting standards - most of which we have looked after on behalf of private owners for a number of years.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for letting me enjoy Madeira from your beautiful apartment - so light and modern with every facility, including a gorgeous pool. Lot and lots of swimming and relaxing. The island is a delight and we did lots of walking and exploring. A lovely holiday in all respects. Sylvia (UK).

Excellent value

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this are before, and this apartment was the best so far. At this time of year the balcony enjoys virtually non-stop sunshine. Daily walk down to the beach bars at Praia Formosa is sorely missed!

Not disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday after being recommended this apartment by friends who had stayed in spring. Everything was spotless and there were no items missing in the kitchen. Beds comfortable. Lovely sunny balcony and pool. Manager very helpful. Great café downstairs.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Great views from a very sunny balcony. No hesitation recommending this to anyone else. Manager very helpful - waiting for us when we arrived. Apartment had everything you would want. Buses into Funchal only 10 minutes but also a pleasant walk of around 40 minutes which we did most days..

Very clean and well presented

  • 5 of 5

Lovely quiet apartment with fantastic ocean views - you can watch all the boats coming and going. Very clean and tidy apartment with all the facilities, but we ate out most nights - lots of really good value restaurants and cafes around. Manager very helpful - loaned us a proper coffee machine!

Owner's Response: You will be pleased to hear that the coffee machine is now permanent. Great local cafes and restaurants in that area.

We would choose it again

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. The description and the pictures give a realistic impression. The owner was very kind and helpful.

To get to the center of Funchal there are buses, but a walk along the coastline (3-4 km) is also a nice option.

We really enjoyed our stay and would choose the same location again. We can highly recommend it!

Great choice of shops, bars and restaurants on your door step makes this a very popular apartment for all ages. Within a few minutes walk you have the Forum Shopping Centre, which has shops, food court, and large supermarket for all your grocery needs. There is also a multi screen cinema if you fancy catching a movie, all films are in English with Portuguese subtitles. Madeira has many things to offer, and it is well worth taking an island tour and doing at least one of the Unique Levada walks the island has to offer.
