About Owner

I have been in Holiday Letting for over 20 years now and have gained a wealth of experience.

Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why Owner chose Funchal

We fell in love with this Villa immediately...the space the quality of fixtures and fittings....the short distance to the centre of Funchal...Restaurants of excellent quality are only a short distance away.

What makes this house unique

Two balconies...one for the morning sun and then one for the afterrnoon sun....flowers in pots on both of these balconies...views of the sea and of the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the manager

tolle Unterkunft, tolle Lage

  • 5 of 5
Quinta Elena liegt in 10min fußläufig zur Innenstadt Funchal in einer ruhigen Wohngegend am Casino. Das Haus liegt im einem kleinen Garten mit einer Natursteinmauer umgeben. Das Haus hat einen englischen Stil. Alles ist sehr sauber und alle erdenklichen Küchengeräte sind vorhanden einschlieslich Waschmaschine. Das Haus ist perfekt für eine 4-5-köpfige Familie. Wir haben immer morgens und abends im Garten für Frühstück und Abendessen gesessen.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
I have been to Madeira many times but Quita Elena was the best house I've ever stayed at. The house was clean, very well maintained and simply beautiful. It's a really large house with great views from the many terraces and a gorgeous front garden that was very private and comfortable. We spent many nights relaxing in the garden. The owner of the house is lovely and the customer service was excellent. I highly recommend this house not only because it's such a beautiful and comfortable house, but also because of it's location - 5 minute walk to downtown Funchal and 2 minute walk to Casino Madeira. The rental of the house also included a free pick up from the airport and the driver was wonderful - we booked him for all our island tours and he was knowledgeable and very friendly. This is a home away from home and you won't be disappointed. I can't wait to come back to Quinta Elena!

Quinta Elana

  • 5 of 5
Quinta Elana looks at least as good as on its photos. House is very well located, spacious for a party of 5 adults (2 + 2 + 1) and very well equipped. The owners were both friendly and professional. Local contacts were friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend staying in this house.

A Funchal Favourite

  • 5 of 5
Great choice for our first trip to Maderia. House was well located, spacious for our family of 4 adults and well appointed, though reflecting standards of another era. The owners and local contacts were friendly and helpful. We especially liked the views, the different areas for sun seekers to catch the sun at different times of the day and the quiet and privacy given the central location. We eat twice at the Cafe Inn as our best find. For garden lovers, the trip by cable car to Monte and a visit to the Monte Palace Gardens made a great day out. The toboggan run though, left us unimpressed. We played tennis most days at the Quinta Magnolia (bring your own racquets and balls) less than €2/ hr in the day. A walk from there under the bridge towards the sea is an interesting nook. We hired a car for 3 days and visited Curral de Freiras. The views up in the mountains are superb if not shrouded in cloud. We will be back.

Period house in good neighbourhood close to town

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Quinta Elena for a week at the end of November 2010. We had a very good time there. The house is very well appointed and was in a quiet neighbourhood near the Casino, 10 mins walk from central Funchal. The courtyard garden is very well kept and the two terraces accessed from first & second floor are excellent for the sun. Also for less sunny days, the top floor sun room was very good too. The place was spotless and all facilities provided. In short, we would definitely return. We did not rent a car during our stay. We are a couple without children but I think the property would be suitable for a family also.

Quinta Elena, Funchal, Madeira

  • 4 of 5
Quinta Elena is probably the best appointed property in which we have stayed. The villa is very well furnished, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The only thing that would make it perfect would be a dishwasher. It is located very centrally in Funchal and the centre is a relatively short walk away (uphill on the way back !) where there is access to shops and a good supermarket. There are numerous restaurants and cafes nearby to suit most tastes and budgets. It is perfectly possible to manage without a car, although this might have been useful for venturing further afield. The deal the owners have with the nearby Penha Franca hotel to use the swimming facilities is good, being a 50% discount, but at 7.5 Euros per person is still quite a lot for a family (parasol sunshade extra !) Overall we would recommend this property and would not hesitate to use it again.

There is a poolside restaurant/bar offering excellent fare. Excellent walled patio garden to the front of the house with outside table and chairs, and a few Portuguese neighbours living nearby. Although we are minutes from the town, sometimes it feels like the country with the sounds of Portuguese daily life - the cock crowing, chickens clucking, birds twittering and the dogs barking - that's Madeiran life for you! Internet service can be provided by prior arrangement. WIFI + Ethernet cable Broadband available at a cost of £13 or 15 Euros per week, but please book and pay in advance
