Highly recommended Oct O8

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is high-spec and the owners have thoughtfully provided everything that one would need on holiday including umbrellas, a varied selection of books and even jigsaws for those so inclined. The apartment is well located within the tourist zone, with supermarket across the road (as well as a health food shop providing tofu for vegetarian visitors) and selection of bars, restaurants around the corner. Of course, these are not 'locals' but the bus-stop is literally just outside and a 10-min bus hop can bring a more madeiran flavour closer: for something more authentic look out for the small-scale 5/6 table cafe cum bars in the back streets where a small beer is accompanied by a plate of garlicy broad beans (or similar). The local lager 'Corral' must be one of the best lagers going and is much preferred to the house wine, which is poor quality. The local spirits, however, are in a league of their own with tropical fruit and nut flavours. The English church holds occasional concerts - the mandolin orchestra was very good, and the national theatre has an operatic programme. The maderia wine tour in the main street by the tourist information is highly informative, or at least I think it was but the detail got lost in the tastings that followed. Also recommended is the cable car and wicket basket descent from the moutain top in Monte. Driving is fine and not as difficult as some of the guide books suggest although the streets are narrow and the going is slow with the hills and bends. As the island is fairly compact a car is not really necessary for a long period and can be a hindrance to walkers as the most appealing walks are largely linear. The owner is extremely helpful and the administrative aspects are dealt with very efficiently and in good time. While not necessarily an 'authentic' experience, all in all the apartment is perfectly situated for location and comfort.

Owner's Response: Hi Tracey
Thanks for your comments and observations regarding your recent stay in Madeira-we feel they will be of good use to future guests.
It was interesting that you mentioned about the side streets in Funchal where you can experience a more Madeiran atmosphere-we often say this to our guests to search out the bars/cafes-Funchal is one of the safest cities in the world plus the nicest people.
Thanks again
Marie and Adrian

Thanks Rosemarie & Adrian

Firstly can I say I agree with all the previous reviews. We stayed at Roda Mar for 6 weeks. You can not fault this apartment, its in a great location, opposite Madeira Forum for grocery shopping, the Lido/ promenade is on the door step, bars,restaurants and cafes all close by. The apartment is spacious, light, modern and well equipped. It has wonderful sea views and the building is a new construction so well sound proofed - a good nights sleep is guarenteed.
Most importantly Rosemarie (the owner) is on hand and always willing to help should you have any problems. The hospitality offered by Rosemarie & husband Adrian was first class. This apartment is a little gem and we are so pleased to have found it, and yes we have rebooked for next year.

The perfect holiday destination!

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time that my 9 year old daughter and I had visited Maderia and it will not be our last! We went for 12 days and still have places to explore when we go back!
THE APARTMENT: The owners provided an excellent standard of customer service from initial enquiry to our safe return back home. It was obvious that they cared about your holiday experience and that this was not just a business to them. The personal touches, such as organising taxi transfers to and from the airport and the Welcome Pack on arrival added to whole experience. The apartment was of a very high specification and was immaculately clean - it had everything you could possibly need and more (including WiFi)! The views were stunning - we miss having breakfast overlooking the sea!
THINGS TO DO: There were so many things to do in the area - we went on three coach tours - East tour, West tour and a trip to the Nuns Valley. The scenery was spectacular and was so different on each side of the island. A photographers paradise! We also went on a catamaran trip and saw whales and dolphins. We made good use of the open top tourist bus (tickets lasted for 2 days) to see Funchal and the surrounding areas. Places to buy tour tickets are within easy walking access of the apartment, as are bus stops. There were a couple of Lidos (swimming pools) within easy walking distance of the apartment and there was also the beach - so a number of choices for swimming/sun bathing!
EATING AND DRINKING: There was no need to go into the main part of Funchal for meals as there was plently of choice within minutes of the apartment. However, if you wanted to, there were plenty of buses/taxis to Funchal, or, if you prefered to eat in, the local supermarket was in easy access of the apartment in a Centre called the Maderia Forum. Make sure you try some Espetada (traditional food - chunks of meat on a kebab); Espada (scabbard fish) and of course, Madeira wine!
The owners have a folder in the apartment will all the information you should need about tours, restaurants etc; and they are more than happy to answer any questions you may have!
THE ISLAND & PEOPLE OF MADEIRA: The people in Maderia are so friendly and helpful - children are welcomed with open arms. It is a place where you will feel very safe. The island has something for everyone - young couples, families and older people.
I will recommend Maderia and this apartment to all my family and friends!

Great modern apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5
Great apartment in a fantastic location close to great restaurants, bakeries, shops and within walking distance to the centre of the city. The sea views from the balcony are amazing and we enjoyed eating out every day on the balcony. Marie and Adrian were very helpful and their welcome pack was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this apartment if you are planning to visit Madeira.

Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5
Appartement très agréable, confortable, spacieux, très bien entretenu, vue mer et très bien situé. Tout proche d'un très beau centre commercial ainsi que de la promenade longeant la mer.
Une ligne de bus se trouve au pied de la résidence pour vous emmener en 10 mn
à la vieille ville.
Les propriétaires sont très charmants et accueillants.

Nous conseillons la visite des différents jardins de Monte. Nous recommandons également de louer une voiture pour quelques jours pour aller voir le côté authentique de l'île: Jardim do Mar, Seixal, Santo Da Serra, les pointes ouest et est de l'île, les Levadas, ...
Et sans voiture, Camara de Lobos un village de pécheurs qui se trouve après une plage de sable gris.

Nous vous recommandons cet appartement.

It was wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 2-weeks-stay at Madeira. The island as well as the apartment have made deep impressions in our mind. We only can recommend both for everyone who likes to make very comfortable and individualistic vacations. The apartment is of a high standard, very well equipped with a very personal charm of the owners and it is located in a calm area nearby the ocean.
So every morning we liked to go jogging at the promenade along the seaside and after this to go across the street to the bacery or an excellent supermarket in order to manage our breakfast on the large balcony.
Just in front of the apartment there was the bus-stop to go to Funchal or other amazing places on the island. There is also a good chance to make a walk to Funchal. Near to the apartment there is a little but very competent information-center where you can book wonderful trips all over the island and also take part of good-guided levada-tours, combined with excellent espetada-lunch.
At last: Our hosts were generous. We could arrive and leave the apartment to a very individual time. So many thanks and all the best for the future. It was wonderful.
