Located a few walking minutes from the Old Town and the centre of Funchal, Quinta Esperança, a traditional house with 5 self catering apartments, all open plans, offers you a very quiet, calm and peaceful holidays. With lots of fruit trees, local plants, bananas and wine plantations, you can enjoy the typical Madeira environment.

It is beautifully decorated, very private and enjoys a magnificent view from its balcony over the harbor and the whole city of Funchal. It is accessed by some spiral exterior stairs, so you must be sure you are well fitted to get up there, not to be disappointed on your arrival.

ROSE apartment - www.homeaway.co.uk/1600720: located on the back side of the house, it is the bigger apartment, with a separated bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, spacey living and dinnig room, and bathroom with shower.

JASMIM, MAGNOLIA and LAVENDER apartments, are also open plans located on the ground floor, connecting directly to the gardens. Each of the areas are around 30sqm, each one totally equipped with living room, dinning place,bathroom, and kitchinet. They are located facing South, totally equipped and private . Outside, in front of each one, you have a table with some chairs so you can have your meals, or a wonderful leisure moment for resting. As the size of each apartment is slightly different, they also have different prices, so, please take a look at our rates field.

TERRACE: located upstairs with a lounge, enjoys a superb view over the sea and harbor. It is for the use of all our guests staying at the house, and can be used any time day or night. It is also accessed only by the spiral stairs.

Having only 5 apartments (all open plans) at the Quinta, gives you the excellent opportunity of coming along with some friends or family. Although being close to each other, all the apartments are very private and totally equipped. Privacy and quietness, is the main thing we want to preserve in this house, not having the feeling of staying in a Hotel, but a truly 'Home to Home'...

If you take a few minutes reading our reviews, they will give you an entire idea of how it is like. Our guests are absolutely happy for finding our place and amazed with everything on their arrival...If you don´t like to stay in any crowded place, surely Quinta Esperança is the best and unique choice.

In this place, you can also keep your empty luggage during your stay. We offer a small barbecue, that can be moved to wherever you prefer. It works with coal, which we don´t provide, but you can easily get it in the local supermarket.

LOCATION of the Quinta:

The easy location of the Quinta, a few minutes away from Funchal, offers you all the comfort of not having to hire a car.....On your arrival and departure day, we can provide you the transfer from and to the airport.....During your stay, the regular bus service to town (1,20€ per trip) is very good and the bus stop is located on the gate of the Quinta. If you like to walk, Funchal city center is just 15 minutes away, through a very nice road. As it is a bit steep to come back, better to take the bus number 31, the same that goes up to the beautiful Botanical Garden.....At a late hour, a taxi will cost you no more than 5€.....If you prefer to have a car just for a few days to explore the Island, we can try to get you the best price.

Pertectly delightful

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in Quinta Esperanca in May and were absolutely delighted by the setting, the views, the location and the warm, lovely welcome. Our Jasmin appartment was cosy and well equippen, and the views from the upstairs terrace incomparably delightful for a drink at dawn, looking over the town and port sprawling out in front of you.

The Quinta is thankfully far away from the hotel zone of Funchal, but both the old town and the town centre with its shops and market are within walking distance. Yes, one needs to climb up a hill on the way back, but that's perfectly doable. There's also a bus nearby, though, if you don't fancy the walk.

The owners, Helena and Roberto, were most welcoming hosts and went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. And, as other reviewers have pointed out, the bakery they recommend is indeed very good.

Funchal itself has a great atmosphere and is a good basis to explore Madeira.

I would unhesitatingly recommend staying at Quinta Esperanca and would be delighted to stay there again on our next trip to Madeira.

A beautiful experience in a dream location

  • 5 of 5
“This is a truly beautiful place. From the start Helena and Roberto made us feel very welcome. We stayed two nights in Magnolia which has a beautiful outside sitting area. The apartment itself has everything you need. We spent 5 nights in Orchid which is amazing in every way. If we go back to Funchal we will not stay anywhere else. The gardens and outside area are so beautifully maintained. It is in a great location far from the madding crowd but close enough to the old and best part of Funchal. We loved all the fruit trees in the garden and Roberto kindly gave us mangoes from one of the trees a couple of times. We also loved "Amigo" the yet to be named dog that Roberto had rescued from the mountain a few weeks previously. The photos of the dog at the time of rescue and the difference in him after only a couple of weeks was great to witness. The is nothing I can say about the beauty of the Orchid apartment that hasn't already been said by other reviewers. The photos do not do it justice. We were very sad to leave the place as it was one of the most peaceful holidays we enjoyed. Helena and Roberto even surprised us with a gift of Madeira as we were leaving. Thank you for being fantastic hosts and I hope we will get back to your Quinta one day soon.”

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in the Quinta Esperanca. The apartment “Magnolia” was great, it looks freshly renovated, was very clean and offers a charming interior with everything you need. We were actually surprised how spacious it was, it appeared smaller on the pictures. The apartment is in the ground floor of a beautiful building with a nice garden full of mango, banana and avocado trees. There are only four other apartments in the house, and its in a quite neighborhood, so overall its a really calm place and great to relax. The terrace in front of the apartment was a perfect place to have a coffee in the morning and enjoy the view over the sea. From the shared upper-floor balcony the view was even better. Helena and Roberto were great hosts, they also offered a pick-up service from the airport and fresh mangos for breakfast. A good bakery, small supermarket and very good restaurant (O Tasco) are nearby, and the old part of Funchal is in walking distance too. Overall, we can highly recommend this place and will surely come back if we visit Madeira again!

very recommended!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in Funchal with Helena and Roberto! The apartment turned out to be just perfect, even though we planned to rent the other one (with private pool), but that one was already booked. The Jasmine apartment was cosy, contained practically everything we needed (we could even cook for ourselves, but as there were a lot of nice restaurants within walking distance, we didn't need to), clean and nice. Quinta esperanza is a beautiful hotel, quiet, with a very nice garden, with pool and we even had our own terrace. Helena was very helpfull, and we could always reach Helena or Roberto in case of any problem. We could certainly recommend Quinta Esperanza and when we'll visit Madeira next time, we would definitely stay there again!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the Quinta was perfect. The location has a perfect view over the city and the sea. The apartment was very well equipped and cosy. Helena and Roberto were also the perfect hosts and made everything to make us feel at home.

The house is situated on the hills, far away from the hotels and the tourists. Everything is at walking distance.

Perfect.

Quinta Esperança is located in Funchal city just by the historic old quarter,usually known as 'Old Town'. It distances 19 km from the local airport, about 30 minutes driving car. We can help you with the transfers from and to the airport, which will make your life much easier and comfortable .The area of the house is very quiet, peaceful and full of traditional houses . The view from there is awsome, over the harbor, sea and city. Very close to the house we have the famous bakery 'Mariazinha', with wonderful bread, cakes and coffee. Next door, is a small supermarket where you can find all those main things you may need during your stay. The sea is in within walking distance (15-20 min walking down), with Praia da Barreirinha at the end of our road. Funchal market, shops, museums and cable car are also down the road within walking distance as is 'Old Town' with all the restaurants, bars, coffees and shops. Bus stop is just by the gate and will be useful for coming back home from the city center, or a taxi, will cost you no more than 6€. Plenty of parking places just outside for free, any time day or night..

This location enjoys very easy accesses to any part of the Island, as the entrance for the high way(number 13), is at the top of Caminho do Palheiro. So, it is an excellent basis for you to enjoy exploring the rest of the Island.

East or West side of the Island: Funchal, Caniço, Calheta, Santo da Serra ,Santa Cruz or even Porto Santo.

We have houses in all these places, so you can stay during some days in one part, get to know it well, and then move to another side of the Island.

In this web site, the references are:

Santo da Serra: 81800; 1097377

Calheta: 1046349;

Also in Funchal: 99068,424324, 1054121.

All these houses are very good, some private villas with private pools, ideally for families or group of friends. Always ask for availabiliy as our calendars may not be updated...

Golf: The 2 golf courses are very near: Palheiro Golf is just 10 min away and Santo da Serra Golf is just 25 min away. Both are great golf courses, surrounded by nature and beautiful views.
