Since moving to the Old Town of Funchal 10years ago we fell in love with this beautiful part of Madeira. We live here because it is the ideal combination of sun, old fashioned charm, tropical gardens and sea. Our villas each have their unique character, with the luxury of space - a sense of history and offering the best Madeira has to offer. We have assembled a collection of fabulous seaside villas in the old town that are run as successful self-catering properties. Alongside this business, we launched the award winning publishing company, Funchal-Publications in 2005 that has several travel books on the Island. This complement of books, history & local knowledge is something we like to pass on to our guests, and makes each holiday experience special.

Seaside location near the Old Town of Funchal. The tropical garden is an oasis in the center of town with a swimming pool surrounded by tropical plants. The sea and beach is a short walk away. We Love the climate here which is warm year round as it has a nice micro-climate. Very friendly neighborhood, un-spoilt & charming. The villa itself is a very beautiful buidling, over a hundred years old with stunning period features that have all been lovingly restored and fully modernized to make your stay not only very stylish but also very comfortable. The house has a feeling of peace and tranquility inside which is complemented by the dazzling seaviews just in front. Watching the boats pass just in front a dream and looking at the port of Funchal so close is a source of constant joy. We try to use local artisans and craftsmen everytime we can, so you can see the artwork, beautiful handmade wicker furniture and TLC that is given to each property and also helps the local community.

Beautiful traditional villa with huge sevaiew terraces on each floor all looking to the sea, absolutely fantastic sea and harbor views. Very spacious rooms, decorated with style and great features, you get the luxury of space in the very best location in all Madeira and Funchal. Near the sea and old town, yet with the benefit of the seaviews and peace and quiet. Enjoy outdoor living and cooking on the barbecue year round, sip a drink as the Queen Mary Cruise ship passes just in front, its Madeira but its the Very Best of Madeira.

Thanks for a much needed relaxing holiday at Bay View, all three of use loved the apartment and the space it offered, the best feature was of course enjoying eating outside as we watched the cruise liners pass out of the bay of Funchal, great views just what we wanted. Please thank carlos for the airport pick up and help during our stay which was greatly appreciated. We hope to return soon, regards Birgit

Marvelous apartment by the sea

  • Submitted: Apr 26, 2013

We booked this jewel of an apartment and had an enchanting stay. Its a part of Funchal full of charm, lots of gardens, old houses crumbling to bits a bit like a refined and very clean Cuba without the danger or poverty. Apartment has a lot of space (we though the staircase was shared but then realised the entire place was just for the two of us - the bedroom is massive it has 3 different windows and three doors, so that gives an idea of how big it is). We used the swimming pool and spent a lot of time on the terrace which has great views of Funchal port. There are some teeny restaurants within walking distance which we found very good quality/price (tapassol, Jango and Sabor a Fado) and the barreirinha bar was great to sip a drink before heading back home (one night it had some good jazz). The climate was so warm we could not beleive it as it was snowing back home, we got 21 degrees one day. Its a very nice island and I think we chose the best place to stay.

Just a quick thank you for another lovely stay in the Bay View. LOVED the new wicker sunchairs on the veranda they are so chic and comfortable it really made us live outside all day long, we only left the apartment for essential rations and even cooked all our dinners on the BBQ while enjoying the views. Thanks Cecilia, Pedro and all the team at Funchal Cottages, see you in October.

Brilliant stay in Bay

  • Submitted: Apr 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
Where to begin...first please book us again for the same week next year it was just the holiday we needed and it was an inspired choice to stay here (top marks to my wife that found you on the internet). Loved the high ceilings and beautiful decor and overall luxury of space of the apartment itself. It feels like you are in a tropical oasis but the house is actually in the center of town right by the sea and close to everything that matters in Funchal. We really had a charming stay and will count the days to our next holiday here. Many thanks and see you next year.

Best of Madeira

  • Submitted: Jan 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
Many thanks for a delightful holiday in the Bay View, we felt very much at home and found the apartment full of special touches that made our stay very special. The views are superb and even better than the photos show, inside everything is beautiful and I can´t help thanking all the support we got throughout our stay. We hope to return very soon again as the weather here makes us long for our home from home in Madeira with our barbecues and warm sunsets on the balcony. Fondest regards

Best of both worlds

  • Submitted: Aug 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We stayed first in the Bay View and then the Pool Cottage (both owned by the same people) and found the combination superb. A private transfer took us in about 10min from the airport to the Bay View, arriving early at the house everything was ready for us at 10am which was very appreciated. The apartment was enormous and very handsome with tall ceilings and lots of windows with great sea views. We enjoyed the sunny terrace and also the sunbathing area around the pool which is shaded by banana trees (we ate some delicious). Location was brilliant in the center but without the bustle, we had dinner out every night in the old town which has plenty of choice, it also has typical poncha bars and a bakery which seems to be open all the time. When we went to the next apartment the owner picked us up and took us to the Pool Cottage (with all our breakfast stuff in a trolley) service was above and beyond what we expected and so was the Bay View which we would certainly recommend.

Seaside heaven

We were very happy with our choice in the Bay view, we were picked up from our flight by Alan and taken to this lovely house in the old town. Its quite nice to be able to see all the boating activity in the port just in front of the villa, from canoes, to small fishing boats and some cruises. We got sun all day long and sunbathed on the terrace as well as down by the swimming pool. Friendly part of town, not too built-up with interesting architecture and houses you long to buy and do up. A very relaxing and comfortable stay, clean and professional service from the property manager - we plan to return in the winter to the Bay View and maybe get a bit more active this time with some mountain walks.

heavenly Old town

  • Submitted: Aug 8, 2012

Our stay was just what the doctor ordered (quiet, warm, restful), loved the central location by the sea and the views or the harbor. It was lovely to get some sun at this time of year and a real pleasure to be able to stay outdoors on the veranda of the Bay View every night. Maria the bakery up the road is excellent we enjoyed going there every day practicing our Portuguese. Thanks again and we will recommend it to our friends. Mary G.

Thanks for a nice stay and a good rest from our rain at home. Funchal is a beautiful city and we enjoyed cooking the exotic fish from the market on our balcony barbecue (we even took photos to show our friend in Austria who were under heavy snow). You live in a paradise here in Madeira I hope you know how lucky you are! The Bay view was just so nice we hope we can come back one day. Andrea Sc. & Jenny

Winter Birds Home

It was a brilliant escape from the cold weather, we had heard madeira was warm but it was a a real treat to get such sunshine in January when the rest of Europe was so horribly cold. Bay View was an inspired choice, we had ample space and privacy (got on very well with the other guests in the Ocean apartment) and the location suited us totally as it is so close to the center of town. We´ll be back next winter. Tina & barry
