QUINTA ESPERANÇA, A HOTEL IN 1930, BROUGHT TO THE MODERN TIMES

Funchal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

PRIVATE POOL, great location and view,quiet,close to Old Town,wifi,parking,

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.

ORCHID, this apartment (open plan) placed up on the top floor of the building. 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.

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.

POOL, GARDENS, TERRACE, BARBECUE, LAUNDRY :

In the gardens, we offer you some comfortable furniture where you can just seat and relax, while reading a book, by the pool, or elsewhere in the gardens...... ..We have some deckchairs all around, that you can take to your favorite corner of the Quinta.....With the wireless system, you can be working at your lap top outside the apartment, even in the gardens.....The pool is for the exclusive use of our guests, so, only 5 couples share this as no one else lives at the property.The swimming pool area is provided with deckchairs, chairs, table and sun umbrella, for each couple.....We have a separated utility room with washing machine, dryer, iron, iron table, etc, for your commodity. 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. The parking area in front of the Quinta , offers you plenty of space to park, any time day or night.

Knowing the Island - we also have another property in Santo da Serra, Calheta and Porto Santo; so, in case you are staying for two weeks or more, you can enjoy staying one of them in another part of the Island; this will give you the chance to better explore other views. The house is Santo da Serra can be seen at the reference 81800 of this same web site. The villa in Porto Santo is the reference 412323, also from HomeAway. In Calheta, we have the property number 1046349, 1056444, or 1083209. They are all very nice and comfortable properties.

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.

ABSOLUTE DELIGHT

  • 5 of 5
It is such a joy to read the reviews of all other people as they only reconfirm what we have experienced during our week's stay in Quinta Esperanca. It all starts in our case with very kind, caring and generous Helena & Roberto who made us feel very welcome and at home at this beautiful house with wonderful sea and town views, spacious garden and most of all, very comfortable and delicately decorated rooms. Me and my friend, we invited our mums for a holiday and this place was a real treat for them. Staying at the Orchid and Lavender rooms, meeting up at the garden seating area in front of our room or in the terrace, we could share a nice time together and rest, watching beautiful sunsets above Funchal.
The location was perfect for exploring old town Funchal as well as venturing to other places in Madeira. The clear instructions made it easy to find it. Actually the whole process of booking, arrival, stay and departure went as smooth as possible with prompt email reply from Helena when necessary.

Dear Helena and Roberto, thank you very much for this 'absolute delight'. We hope the competition on Sunday went well for Roberto.
We hope to see you again at our next trip to Madeira.

Andrea & Danka & (grand) mothers :-)

EXCELLENT HONEY MOON

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week. The Orchid apartment was lovely - everything was spotless. Helena arranged for the taxi transfer from the airport and was there to greet us at the apartment on our arrival.

The view from our balcony was brilliant - over looking Funchal bay where we could see all the cruise ships coming and going.It only took 10 - 15 minutes to walk down the hill to the sea front and to the nearest bar and restaurant. Its quite a steep hill - so the walk back was hard work but fun. There's a very nice bakery that Helena told us about, which was about a 10 minute walk around the corner.

We were very lucky with the weather for November - most days were dry and sunny with just a few showers on a couple of days. We even managed a swim in the pool and a BBQ which was provided.

During our stay we had a trip in the cable cars to Monte where we visited Monte palace and the tropical gardens which we both loved and would highly recommend. We also had a toboggan ride back down the hill which was a great experience. We'd also recommend a trip on the Santa Maria ship.

Overall, we had a perfect honeymoon and would definitely return to the Quinta Esperanca.

TWO MARVELLOUS WEEKS IN FUNCHAL

  • 5 of 5
When I booked Quinta Esperança, I thought it might be a fraud as it was too good to be true, a place too beautiful to be real...
When we arrived, we realized at once that we didn´t have to worry. Our expectations, we have got from the pictures on the internet were even surpassed.
Quinta Eperança was an exceptional place to spend our Summer holidays at.
As swimming in the Atlantic wasn´t always possible, we enjoyed the pool every day. Helena and Roberto were very friendly and courteous hosts, with an excellent taste for the interior design of the apartments at the Quinta.
We liked to relax here a lot.

QUINTA ESPERANÇA - A TOP PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
It was by all means an extremely lucky hit to find this lovely place for spending all 9 days of our first time visit in Madeira. We stayed in the cozy apartment "Magnolia" which is conveniently and most tastefully decorated.
The spacious terrace right in front of it invited us to have either a rest or to enjoy breakfast with a marvelous view to the sea and city of Funchal.
Freshly picked fruits from the trees in the neatly kept garden enriched many of our breakfast with some delicious tropical flavours. Coming back after long Levada Walks or tiring excursions, the ample pool gave us the luxury to calm down and to relax in style.
Having and enjoying the all time available access to the top floor veranda even for ground floor guests of this outstanding Quinta with a great historic background is the absolute highlight of this place!! Comfortably furnished with canvas chairs and sofas, the gorgeous and breathtaking view over the harbor and the old Townof Funchal is really "The place" to relax and to savour holidays at its best.
Last but not least there are the hosts, Helena and Roberto with their most kind and open hearted manner which made our stay in Quinta Esperança a very special and certainly unforgettable week in a uniquely private atmosphere.
Sincerely yours,
Robert + Helene Wirthlin / Switzerland

PEACE & RELAXATION

Peace & relaxation
  • 5 of 5
Stayed September/October 2011

We have spent a fantastic two weeks here in Madeira, our first visit but surely not the last!

Quinta Esperança is amazing , we would loved to have seen it in its “heyday” and enjoyed looking at the old pictures, visualizing past guests staying here.

The apartment was lovely, comfortable and meals all fresco with lovely views were a treat, we especially enjoyed watching the cruise liners arriving and departing.

As other guests have commented, the walk back uphill is tiring, but we did this many times and rewarded ourselves with a swim in the pool. At least we went home fitter…

We love the relax atmosphere, the very friendly people, where nothing is too much trouble, especially Helena and Roberto. Thank you for all your kindness, help and the gifts of fruit which we much appreciated, not forgetting the barbecue! We made very good use of it…

We have many photos and memories to take home with us!!

Mike and Margaret.
