Description

São Martinho Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Top floor apartment in prime location between city centre and main tourist zone

Originally occupied by the family who owned the historic Savoy Hotel before selling to developers prior to its demolition, this apartment is full of period furniture, paintings and prints that take you back to the "original" Madeira - you can just feel the history! Spacious three-bedroom accommodation with three balconies and two bathrooms, plus access to a huge roof terrace with views through 360 degrees from the ocean to the south to the mountains inland. The location is one of the best, with Funchal city centre being a gentle 10-15 minute stroll or two minutes by taxi or high-frequency bus. Being slightly to the west of the bay of Funchal, the microclimate here is much sunnier than central Funchal – in the opposite direction a ten-minute walk takes you to the main tourist zone where most of the large hotels are located. The actual location is very private, with an excellent small local café beneath the exclusive four-storey development. Being on the top floor there are no neighbours above, so the apartment is very quiet with wonderful views from every window.

In the immediate vicinity there are lots of local cafes, shops and even a couple of English style “pubs”, whilst there are restaurants to cater for every taste. There is cable television and free high-speed Wi-Fi is available throughout the apartment. A space in the private car park is allocated for guests who hire a car.

NOTE: In September 2015 the cable connection to this apartment was upgraded to super-fast 100Mbps (sufficient for streaming live TV on laptops and tablets/iPads) and the number of cable channels increased to 129.

Nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

We loved the apartment. The manager was very helpful. Two of the three bedrooms were a little noisy, though. They faced the bar a block or so away which broadcasted music until late in the night. We were told later the bar was not allowed to broadcast music after 10 PM so we should have complained.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately your stay coincided with the annual festival in Sao Martinho - the district where the apartment is located - celebrating their patron saint. The festival is always most evident on the weekend nearest the 11th of November, and is always an excuse for the locals to stay up all night, set off fireworks and generally party. We recommend that people avoid this weekend and will try to remember to withdraw the availability for that week in future years. There will also obviously be a late night on New Year's Eve. Sorry for the disturbance - you are correct - the police can be called after 10.00pm - and do attend. Otherwise we are pleased you enjoyed you stay - it is a lovely apartment.

Lovely accommodation with a very warm welcome

  • 4 of 5

Large apartment, well furnished with added extras including washing up liquid, loo rolls, dish cloths and everything you require in the kitchen and more. Easy walking distance to Funchal and good restaurants within a few minutes walk. Private parking. Only downside was the building works (new hotel being built within close proximity) and the main bathroom did not have hot water so used the other shower room.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive review. The new hotel is nearing completion and should be finished shortly - most of the construction work is complete so there is little noise. The hot water has been repaired - thank you for your patience.

The property was as described,and well kept and the roof ideal if you want to sunbathe and get a tan

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was located within easy reach of Funchal centre and the port area . Plenty of bars / eating places and supermarkets. The apartment was clean and tidy and plenty of facilities in the apartment.The place itself was lovely and plenty to do.Would recommend this apartment to anyone who wishes to do self catering,and explore madiera.If you don't want to drive public transport is good and taxi's are always available and right across the main road in front of the apartment,less than200 mtrs. When i visit madiera again would definetly stay here.

Good location. Good price.

  • 4 of 5

At this price for six people at the height of summer we were not expecting a great deal, so were pleasantly surprised. Communication with the agent was good and the apartment clean and well prepared. Two cafes below are very good - particularly "Varandas" (or something like that!) - and half the price of the tourist cafes. Private car parking very useful so close to the centre.

Great views

  • 4 of 5

Loved just sitting on the balcony taking in the views. A bit of work going on at a new hotel nearby, but nothing to disturb you. Steady walk into town, along the road for a short distance past a few shops and then through the park to the seafront - leisurely 15 minutes, with more views. Apartment comfortable, with some very nice antiques on display - surprised the owner has left them out. Great value, particularly when there are a few of you - and there is lots of space. Recommended.

Period apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great character - so unlike modern apartments - you really feel like you step back in time! Had everything we needed and the housekeeper was great whenever we needed anything. Highly recommended as something out of the ordinary.
