Formosa Beach - Amazing Ocean Views and Shared Swimming Pool
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

beautiful stay in Madeira

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our needs - family of six. It was clean and in good repair. It had an amazing view of the ocean with beautiful sunsets in the evening. Owners responded quickly to emails sent by us - just general questions. Would definitely recommend hiring a car as you get the full experience of Madeira when you have the freedom a car brings you. There are several restaurants close by and a supermarket withing 5 mins drive. Along the beach there is a path that you can walk to Funchal or go the other way and walk to Camara da lobos which was very nice to do. If you take a dip in the ocean be prepared for small to medium rocks and the brisk temperature of the water, once you get used to it, it is fine. Everything described on the VRBO site is accurate. We wouldn't hesitate to book again in the future.

Great apartment, super location, on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The apartment It is well equipped with everything we needed for our holiday, and although it’s not the most modern, it is all comfortable, clean and serviceable. The balcony is very large and has fantastic views of the garden, pool, beach and sea – it has the sun in the afternoon and evening and is a great place to sit and watch the sunset. Having booked many holiday apartments, we found it was fantastic value for money.

The apartment is in a quiet and peaceful location: no road noise, no barking dogs, only the sound of the sea. It is within easy walking distance of a supermarket, a few local restaurants and bus stops to take you into the centre. It is also a short walk to the seafront promenade which is a very pleasant walkway with fabulous views and a great selection restaurants and cafés. We did the whole walk from Funchal once and it took around an hour. The section between the marina in Funchal and the seafront promenade is along a busy road with little to see, so we’d recommend a bus or taxi for that stretch.

There was a selection of good restaurants within walking distance, but taxis were cheap so going a bit further was an option that we often took. We were very impressed by the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff everywhere we ate. There are too many to mention, but our favourites were Sabor Da India (possibly the best Indian food we have ever had) and Cris’s (served great food and the special menu was exceptional value). Three of the restaurants even gave us a lift home to save us the taxi fare.

We had a fantastic time here and really hope to return.

Komfortable Wohnung in schöner Lage

  • 4 of 5

Gut eingerichtete saubere FeWo für max. 4 Personen, für 6 Personen zu klein. Küchenausstattung komfortabel. Ein wenig zu spartanische Ausstattung des sehr großen Balkons, z.B. keine Auflagen für die 4 Plastikstühle.

São Martinho Area

From the apartment it is only 20 minutes walk from restaurants and Forum Madeira Shopping Centre there you will find a large choice restaurants, cafés and shops and a large supermarket. If you stay at sea level and head towards Funchal you go through the caves and tunnels to Doca do Cavacas – a memorable journey, with the ocean crashing into the caves. In the opposite direction you can walk along the black-sand beach at Praia Formosa to a walkway that ends near Câmara de Lobos. If you don’t want to go anywhere, you can always chose the well-respected local fish restaurant “By the Sea” is adjacent to the complex as is the “Regency Yacht Bar” and "Maresia Bar".
