Kevin who is a keen walker and has explored many of the levadas and lesser known trails is happy to advise or accompany you on any walks you may wish to do.
Casa Che is the perfect accommodation to stay in Machico. It is located in the heart of the town very close to the beach. All facilities such as restaurants, supermarkets, post office etc. are all very convenient to the apartment and you don't need to get the car: anything you might need is at five minutes walking distance.
On our arrival we were given a warm welcome by our hosts Cidalia and Kevin who had prepared for us some excellent snacks and a bottle of wine. They gave us a lot of good advices on what to do in Machico and provided us even with an useful hand-made map (showing all facilities) and a mobile phone for local calls.
The apartment was immaculate, extremely well equipped, stylish and comfortable, exactly as you see in the photos. There is the very best in furnishing and entertainment (also an iPod!) and in the kitchen you will find all the facilities you might need.
We'd have no hesitation in recommending this excellent apartment to anyone.
Machico and Casa Che proved the perfect base for our week's walking holiday on this side of Madeira. The apartment was very comfortable and perfectly equipped, but the highlight of our stay were our hosts Cidalia and Kevin. Kevin has a wealth of knowledge about walking in this part of the Madeira and, best of all, kindly took us to the start of walks and, when necessary, picked us up at the end. With his assistance, we were able to start and end our walks as and when we chose, which made our holiday far more relaxing and stress free. While the island is equipped with an exceptional bus service and taxis are numerous, having a 'friend' to put us on the right path ensured we had a great time. We were also delighted to find there was plenty of good and varied walking close to Machico. Kevin - a huge thanks again!
As great hosts they provided a welcome starter pack - the fruit, rolls and cold meat were especially welcome, as our flight arrived late. They also helped with restaurant recommendations, printed our return boarding passes and, amazingly, provided us with a local service mobile phone - a godsend when out walking and needing to call for a ride. Really, they have tried to think of everything you might need.
The apartment itself was very well situated in Machico: very close to the beach, supermarkets, restaurants and buses (if needed).
Thank you Kevin & Sol, you could not have done anymore to make holiday any better. Happy New Year. XX
There is not much to talk about, everything was simply perfect!
Kevin and Cidalia are friendly, welcoming, always ready to help you with planning your trips around the island.
The apartment was nice, modern, clean and well equipped. Location couln't be better, everything is close: the beach, restaurans, supermarkets, bus stop.
I really reccommend this apartment in Machico and many thanks to Kevin and Cidalia again!
Flott leilighet i 2. etasje med kort vei til stranden og sentrum i Machico. Skal du til Machico og ønsker å bo sentralt så er denne leiligheten et veldig bra alternativ. Leiligheten har alt du trenger for et ferieopphold på Madeira. Fullt opp av kjøkkenutstyr, to flotte soverom, to fine bad, håndklær, kjøleskap, fryser, fin veranda, lesestoff, reisebøker, kart, strandutstyr og praktiske ting til turer (f.eks. hodelykt til tunnelene ved levadaene).
Vertskapet (Cidalia og Kevin) er bare fantastisk. De gir deg gode råd for et best mulig opphold på øya (turer, restauranter mm), og de hjelper deg hvis du trenger assistanse i ulike sammenhenger (vi hadde veldig god hjelp i forbindelse med at leiebilen vår gikk istykker).
Ved ankomst til Madeira hadde vertskapet bl.a. ordnet med mat og ei god flaske vin i leiligheten til vi dukket opp utpå ettermiddagen. Og i leiligheten var det rent og pent.
Leiligheten har også egen parkeringsplass i kjelleren på leilighetsbygget. Liten bil anbefales da det er litt trangt i oppkjørselen.
Vi bodde her i to uker i juli 2014, og leiligheten og verskapet bidro til at det ble to flotte uker.
Having chosen this holiday apartement because of the really positive reviews, pictures and description, we found out that it was even better: Beginning with a warm welcome by both Cidalia and Kevin (including a tasty regional picnic), the two of them gave us not only helpful information and material but also sunscreen :), beach umbrella and a lift to the airport.
The apartment itself appeared super clean with comfortable and nice furniture, a fully equipped kitchen and everything else that you could ever need or think of. Even for our half-year-old baby a bed and a chair were provided.
The location, only one block from the beach and the town center, was ideal to explore the surroundings. Being quite close to the airport was practical and in no way annoying.
We truly want to recommend this accomodation if you want a hassle-free, friendly, comfortable, homely and simply great holiday with two wonderful and open hosts.
When coming back to Madeira, we'll certainly stay at Cidalia's and Kevin's again!
Our stay at CASA CHE was a most enjoyable experience, with every facilty within the apartment listings to enhance our visit. The location made us feel part of the community,with all amenities a short stroll from the apartment. Our hosts Cidalia and Kevin, provided first class customer service. As for MACHICO one can be as relaxed or active as the inclination takes, with recreation, dinnig, promenade. public transport all close by. A property to suit all tastes.
