|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This light and cosy studio-apartment is a newly renovated one-bedroom-flat with two large beds, a complete bathroom, a well-equipped kitchenette and a very comfortable living-room. A sofa-bed allows a third person to stay comfortably at this apartment.
It also has a very pleasant balcony with sea view and a private garage. This modern apartment has a great location: just in the centre of the Lido touristic area.
From its terrace you have wonderful views of the mountains and of the sea. There is a solarium and a small swimming-pool.
On the ground floor there is a nice restaurant, an embroidery shop and a mini market where you can find fresh fruits, drinks and a lot of other things. Furthermore, you have a wide range of restaurants, rent-a-cars, shops, banks, post office, souvenir stores and pubs in the area.
You also have access to the sea and to swimming-pools within a very short distance and for a reasonable price.
Right in front of the building there is a very well served bus stop, in case you want to go to the town centre, on a tour (yellow and red bus lines) or if you’re interested in getting the Aerobus to the airport. You will also find a taxi stand at a 2 minutes walking.
If you enjoy walking, it will take you about 30 minutes to get to the town centre and the Lido seaside promenade is just 5 minutes’ walk away from the apartment. While walking you can appreciate beautiful gardens and sights.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Guests are invited to ARRIVE NOT BEFORE 13.00 hours and DEPART UNTIL 11.00 hours.

Wonderful Penthouse with Lovely views to the Bay and Mountains-- Other lovely property.The same owners.List.
Absolutely fantastic apartment. Arrived late and Ana was there to meet us and show us around the apartment. Great location close to everything with easy bus links in to the city centre. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday, although we didn't need to eat in the apartment as there were lots of great restaurants near by. The pool on the top of the building is an added bonus. Thank you very much for letting us stay in your apartment and we hope to come back soon.
First time in Madeira and we loved it.
Ana and Mario are great hosts and very helpful.Nothing is too much trouble.
The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable,small kitchenette has everything required should you want to cook meals.
Personally, we went out for dinner as apartment is well positioned with restaurants,bars,shops, transport etc all within walking distance.
A large balcony,rooftop pool and patio area with fantastic views are the 'icing on the cake'.
Go and see for yourself,Just do it.
The property looked even nicer than in photo. It was great to have breakfasts at the balcony with the ocean view. Location is very good, you can take a walk in a promenade along the ocean or you can reach the heart of Funchal by bus or by foot as we did. At the apartment we found everything that we need for cooking, clothes washing etc. Also a car parking inside the building. Supermarket is just 2 min from the home.
Thank You for the nice stay.
After a delayed arrival because the taxi driver didn't know the address we were relieved to find Ana waiting for us!
She kindly showed us around the apartment which met our needs perfectly.
We were pleased with the location and there are some really excellent restaurants nearby. It was also perfectly situated for walks into Funchal and Camara de Lobos.
The weather was warm enough to sunbathe on the roof though not to use the pool yet. Except for one afternoon, we had the roof to ourselves.
The apartment was a great find and much more preferable and homely than staying in a hotel room.
Ana was really helpful and confirmed our return airport pick up and checked us out at the arranged time.
If we ever visit Madeira again we would definitely see if this was available as a first choice.
I booked this apartment 9 months before our arrival. As I wanted to secure our flights I decided to book it early. When we arrived from the airport via the SAM bus system, it left us in front of the AVIS Counter. Lo and behold the owners, Ana and Mario were waiting for us and helped us with our bags. It was a pleasant surprise . Ana explained all the conveniences, how the appliances worked, garbage drop off etc. We had use of the garage as well which is an excellent convenience.
The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The pictures posted are exactly what you get. The kitchen is small/compact but has all the features with the exception of an oven and dishwasher. There is a combo microwave. It was well equipped and served our purposes.The bedroom was very comfortable with single beds. We had lots of storage. I found the beds very comfy. At no time were we ever cold as there were sufficient blankets to keep us warm. In fact I took two off as it was too warm.
The living room/dining area is sufficient. For a couple and one child this would work well. We enjoyed the convenience of having the WIFI to keep in touch with family. The TV had a lot of channels so there was a large variety of English ones to choose from.
The first two pictures you initially see on the webpage, are from the 7th floor terrace which has a pool. As it was December/January we didn’t go to the pool but did take in the views. Simply stunning.
The location of the apartment is about a 3 km walk from the City Centre. It sounds like a lot but we did it in 40 minutes one way. It’s a wonderful stroll at night, especially during the Christmas/New Years season as the city is transformed with lights. It’s about a 15 minute walk from Reids Palace and 30 minute or so from the Casino which is on the main road; it all depends on how fast you walk. There is a trail close by that takes you to Camara Dos Lobos, a pleasant walk along the waterfront. It will take you to a black beach via a tunnel made for people to get to it. There are 2 Pingo Doces (Supermarkets). One is just down the street. It’s quite large and has seafood and butcher counters. The smaller one is just west of the apartment and served our needs quite well. There is a bakery close by as well as many many restaurants. So many that they are actually vying for your business. A gem of a find, we will be back!
My fiance and I stayed in this lovely apartment for a week in December/January. Ana is a great host! She responded to my emails promptly and she was there to greet us and give us a tour of the apartment despite arriving much later than expected (flight delays). She even bought us some welcome gifts such as champagne! The apartment was spacious and we had everything we needed. The location was good. We were able to park the rental car in the building which saved us money on parking. My only complaint is that there is no heating in the apartment but from what I heard from other people, most of the houses/apartments in Madeira don't have heat. Ana provided us with extra blankets so that helped! Also there is not quite enough hot water for the long north american showers I am used to! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Funchal.
