Funchal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Peaceful self Catering apartment, set in landscaped gardens, relaxing views.

This self catering ocean facing, waterfront apartment, set on the cliff top, in landscaped gardens with a swimming pool is in a excellent location for your holiday rental, relaxing, peaceful, romantic. From the balcony watch the sunrise over the Desertes Islands, and later in the day you can just relax and take in the stunning views, listen to sounds of the waves, watch the sunset in the evening, and the moon glistening on the water at night. Although, the apartment is only a few minutes walk to restaurants, shops, supermarket, banks, taxi's ranks, bus stop and promenade walk, with its cliff top position, it is well away from the road, in a wonderful location.The centre of Funchal, is a pleasant 10-15 min walk. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable, and furnished to a very high standard, fully equipped for your every need, to enable you to have a relaxing holiday. We are there to add that personal touch, and greet you on your arrival, and answer any questions you may have.

On your arrival: On your arrival we can arrange transport for you to and from the airport, we have taxi driver's we have used for many years, and are friendly and very reliable, and speak very good English. They will collect you from the airport and take you to the apartment where we will be there to greet you and show you around the apartment, and to answer any questions you may have. There will a welcome pack for you on arrival also. If you should need any extra help or advice during your stay we would be pleased to help. The apartment is very central, with good transport available close by, so hiring a car is not really necessary unless you wish to, and if so there is car parking available at the apartment. There is also a hire car office in the courtyard of the apartment , so if you do wish to hire a car for the odd day, it is very convenient for pick-up and return of the car.

We have tried to put all the little extra touches to the apartment to make your stay more enjoyable.

During your stay: There is a portfolio of useful information which includes maps, leaflets from local attractions, restaurants to try, excursions, wonderful walks, exotic gardens, golf etc.

If you are golfers there is our two challenging golf courses in Madeira,- Palherio, which is a short 15 mins drive, or Santo Serra, which is 35min drive. We are pleased to be able to offer a 30% discount on green fees at Palherio Course.

Sunbeds available for sunbathing in the gardens. The balcony is a beautiful relaxing setting, with panoramic views, it is a lovely spot to retire to after your day of shopping or exploring this beautiful island, which our guests find very hard to leave.

On your departure: On your departure we will return to the apartment to bid you farewell, and to ensure you have had a good holiday. The time of departure from the apartment on the day is flexible, depending on the time of new arrival's.

The usual time of departure is 10am, but luggage can be left until your departure to the airport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Apartment very clean with everything you could possibly need, including a welcome pack which was great, meant we did'nt have to go rushing to the supermarket. The views from the balcony were lovely( great place to be for the early morning coffee or that late night drink). Loads of restaurants to chose from, Moby Dick's in the complex did great meals and inexpensive. My husband is in a wheelchair but had no difficulties in getting around. Our hosts Marie and Adrian were perfect and were there to greet us. The island is stunning. The taxi tours are recommended. We have no hesitation in recommending the this holiday apartment to anyone. It far exceeded our expectations. Many thanks. RIta and Pete.

Madeira Dream Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is so well maintained, it has everything you could want for a excellent holiday break, the facilities are to a high standard and are cleaned weekly with fresh towels & linen...highly recommended.

The apartment is carpeted throughout making it more than homely and the views from the balcony are stunning.

Restaurants and supermarkets are very nearby as well as local bus services and taxi's if required.

We have stayed in many hotels and apartments in Madeira and this is the best so far by a mile.

The owners are more than helpful and make your stay very enjoyable....booked to go again in June 010 & December 010.

Owner's Response: Hi Diane John and Tom So glad you enjoyed your stay at our Baia Apartment-shame about the weather! But as you know it was very unusual for Madeira. Look forward to seeing you again in 2010. Hope your comments will encourage others to book the apartment. Thanks a lot. Marie and Adrian

Room with a view!

This is an absolutely lovely apartment but the best part is the amazing view- we just didn't want to leave! Spent hours just relaxing and gazing out of the enormous patio window - perfect. The apartment itself has everything you could possibly need for comfort and convenience - totally equipped. It is in an excellent location with good restaurants and supermarket within a few minutes walk. Takes about 20 minutes or so to walk into Funchal itself which is a beautiful Capitol. The welcome and hospitality of Rose-Marie and Adrian was lovely. They arranged taxi travel, greeted us at the apartment and provided a very good welcome pack including wine so we could start our holiday off properly! We would highly recommend this apartment for either a short or long stay - it is so comfortable and homely. Location wise we think it is the best place to be as it's near enough to Funchal but far enough out not to be too busy, though at the same time in an area with enough activity with shops, restaurants etc for atmosphere. We will definitely go back again - just the job for relaxation.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

An amazing apartment with wonderful views over the ocean from the balcony. Spacious, very clean and well equipped and handy for supermarkets, buses, restaurants and the centre of Funchal.

Friendly welcome from Marie and Adrian and an excellent touch having a starter pack of food and drink in the fridge.

Definitely an apartment to be recommended.

"Did not want to ever leave"

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Madeira for 7 years and in that time been back to this stunning island 10 times, guess you could say we love it.

This was however the first time to stay at this brilliant apartment. We were thrilled to meet Adrian and Marie who showed us around the apartment and made us so welcome. The comfort and quality of the apartment is the best we have stayed in. Everything we could possibly need from towels to hair-dryers, sun-chairs to welcome pack. The apartment was immaculate and the location was perfect.

We spent days around the pool which was never busy and had sunbeds wher you could soak up the sun and the views. The view from the apartment is once again the best we have ever had at an apartment. Clear views straight out to the Atlantic and around the coast to Funchal. We spent every morning on the terrace with a cup of tea watching the sun rise " Glorious".

The supermarkets are all walking distance so easy for shopping, the restaurant at floor level is also excellent " Moby Dick" we had several meals and drinks there.

A daily walk down into the old town of Funchal along safe pavements takes about an hour and well worth it to soak up this wonderful area. Plenty of restaurants and bars to frequent along the way if you want.

We were so pleased we have already rebooked for next year. I guess that is testament enough that we has a wonderful holiday.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for such a lovely and informative review of the apartment and surrounding area.. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay so much. As you say the walk into Funchal Old town is very pleasant and does take approx.1 hour.However,so that future visitors are not confused,the actual walk to Funchal city centre is in the region of 15 minutes. . We look forward to greeting you again next year. Kind Regards. Marie and Adrian.

Got to be one of the best

  • 5 of 5

Yet again another fantastic holiday in Maderia staying in our favourite apartment.

The apartment has recently been decorated throughout to a very high standard and a new kitchen washing m/c fitted which was brilliant.

WIFI is now installed for those who need to keep in touch with friends and family and those who need to keep on top of works emails.

We would highly recommend this apartment to all that visit this web page as it is what it says on the description and you are so well looked after when there if help is needed.

Local bus stops up the road for those that need transport and weekly tickets can be brought for 21Euro's which is a snip as you can use as much as you like.

There are so many good restaurants close by and in Funchal itself too many to mention.

Already booked for next May 2013....happy holidays to one and all
