As described

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as shown and described. Well equipped, clean and easy to use. Ana was a concerned host making sure everything was ok by text and email. Met by Carlos who seemed a charming person and proved necessarily in talking to the taxi driver. The apartment is part of several that make up a a small 'complex'. The style is typical of the new development on the island of which there seems to be much since my last visit 15 years ago. There is a decent supermarket about 15 minutes away but there is a small hill, if this is a problem then just take a taxi, the rank is outside the shop.

I flew to the island as at that time of the year the ferry has been known to be stranded due to bad weather. The plane was a small turboprop, if you have sensitive hearing or need to keep loud noise out, would suggest you take earplugs. Porto Santo is smaller,drier and quieter than Madeira so get to like the beach. The walk to the airport at 6 in the morning took longer than the flight.

I intend to go back in May before the Madeiran hordes invade ( bit of an oxymoron there) and the sun a bit stronger for the vit. D.

Only negative is that if you are a bit unsure of your footing there is no grab rail over the bath/shower.

Thanks Ana and keep well

A wonderful view.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Porto Santo. The photos of the property don't do it justice; it is really spacious, neat and the view is stunning.

The kitchen had everything you could possibly need making it really homely. Little extras like a coffee machine and iron were much appreciated.

It's not far to walk into the town and the most beautiful beach is on the doorstep. There's a good range of bars and restaurants within easy reach.

We really appreciated the owner allowing us a late check out on the day we left.

I thoroughly recommend this property.

Perfect place to relax with a wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is modern, clean and very well equipped with everything we needed for our 10 day stay. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The area is quiet but close enough to walk into the centre of the town. The view from the balcony is wonderful. You can even watch the sunrise over the sea! We were looking for a peaceful relaxing time and we found it. I'm sure we will return!
