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).

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!

Another relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to this apartment and it was just as we had remembered it. We love the location - shops and restaurants very close. Having the swimming pool is a real plus point, providing an opportunity to relax and cool off after tiring walks. The apartment is very much as described, with all that you need in terms of comfortable beds and sufficient crockery and utensils for the bit of cooking that I chose to do - but with the good restaurants close by there was little need for this. Peter and Fiona provide a warm welcome and are happy to help with any queries. Sue (UK)

Great value

  • 5 of 5
We were concerned that the apartment might not live up to expectations with it being priced so competitively for a week out of season, but needn't have worried. Everything was as per the photos and descriptions, and the balcony had sun all day. Very clean and well presented and the managers explained the locality well - lots of cafes and restaurants and a big supermarket five minutes walk away. Can't recommend it highly enough - the cafe below is excellent.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the thumbs-up! - and yes - the cafe below ("Mitos & Aromas") is very good!

Great location

  • 5 of 5
This was a bit of a last minute decision to visit Madeira and we were fortunate to find this apartment at such short notice. The apartment was very much as described in terms of facilities and location. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the world go by, enjoying ocean views and sunsets. We felt the location - close to restaurants and supermarket was great. The added benefit was the swimming pool. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment and hope to visit again in 2014.Peter responded quickly to emails and requests for information - very helpful.

Recommended to anyone

  • 5 of 5
A luxury apartment which actually lives up to its advertisement. All facilities were there as described and everything was scrupulously clean including the entrance hallway to the apartments which is in marble and makes one feel very glamorous when entering or leaving. Excellent customer service which has been arranged by the owner plus the addition of a "welcome" book with all the information you require for an excellent holiday. Immediately to the right of the apartment entrance is a parade of shops which have everything needed. Rolls absolutely gorgeous from these shops. Would recommend this apartment to anyone. Pam and Jean.

Owner's Response: Delighted you like the apartment. Free "Wi-Fi" internet now installed and the number of cable channels increased on the TV. Even more specialist shops opening locally - seems to be becoming the place to be!

Excellent - and great value

  • 5 of 5
Can't fault the place! Easy to get to (just get off the Airport bus at the Forum then a short walk). The apartment was spotless and missing nothing we wanted. Wi-Fi handy. Maybe could have done with a few more DVDs. Friendly cafe downstairs and a handy fruit and veg shop 2 mins away - large supermarket downstairs at the shopping centre a little further away. The "Gran Brasa" restaurant does great take-aways for next to nothing! If you want to spoil yourself the fish restaurant at Doco de Cavacas (spelling?) is worth a visit.
Buses into the centre of Funchal every few minutes and only takes 10 minutes so easier than car-parking. Sunny private balcony with ocean views. Try the walk down to the beach at Praia Formosa (spelling?). Can't recommend the location enough - and we did some research before travelling - it has to be one of the best value apartments we have stayed in.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review. We keep telling people what a good location it is, but if they have not visited Funchal before they simply do not realise! The number of cable channels have been increased so you generally find a good film (in English with subtitles).

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.
