Schöne FeWo mit tollem Ausblick auf's Meer
Wir waren in der Zeit vom 08. bis 18. Oktober auf Madeira und haben uns in der Ferienwohnung von Niara sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet und verfügt nun auch über WLAN, was uns sehr gefreut hat.
Niara ist sehr nett und hat uns viele gute Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt gegeben. Der Standort in Garajau ist auch sehr gut, nicht weit von Funchal und durch die Autobahn gut angebunden.
Wir würden gerne wiederkommen.
Lars und Susanne aus Deutschland
Vielen Dank! Sie werden hier immer willkommen sein!
Niara made our stay there a great pleasure and nothing is too much trouble for her , thank you Niara
Good location and a great place . Thank you Niara
Where should I start..? The apartment has such a great view and is good located. All informations on the internet - the pictures and informations around are correct. After we arrived on the airport Niara has send us a taxi driver to take us directly to the apartment and she has waited at the apartment and was very helpful with a lot of informations we need to explore.
We have rented a car for travelling around the island and to be a bit more flexible. We rented online and could picked up the car in the shop AVIS in Garajau, not far away. Niara gave us a remote control for the parking area - a saved and cool place. We have felt home in Niara´s apartment - every day we have said "come on, let´s go home".
The pizza from the pizzeria just next to the apartment made such a great pizza - you must try it! :)
The apartment has everything you need for cooking, washing and just relaxing.
Garajau is a good place to stay. There are two small supermarkets just a 5 min. walk. The second shop has a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits. We loved this shop.
In the evening drove a lot of cars and mopeds on the main street. For us it was a little bit loud and we need longer to fall asleep - we are not used to. We live on the land - after 9pm there are no one on the streets :D
All in all, thank you that you have helped us to enjoy our vacation with a lot of memories, Niara!
We already recommended your apartment to family, friends and colleague.
Thank you very much for your nice review you left for me!
In fact the apartment has a great ocean view from all rooms and location is very good with everything you need just nearby.
The advantage is the bedroom is not facing the main street and it doesn't have many cars anyway (it is a small village) but of course you can't compare with the completelly silence of the country side you are used to :)
It was a great pleasure have met you and helped you to have the best holidays as possible!
I really hope we can meet each other again in a near future!
Fantastic appartment with splendid view on the sea
The appartment was totally OK, the surrounding is pretty (with shops, restaurants and a cafe) and the view on the sea is fantastic.
Thank you very much for your review! It will always a pleasure welcome you!
vakantie op Madeira - april 2014
A hotel is a hotel, but if you prefer the freedom of an apartment : this apartment is what you need for your vacation in Madeira
The information on the internet is 100 % correct! New, comfortable and clean, beautiful view, 2 spacious balconies
We slept well in the comfortable bed and enjoyed our breakfast at the balcony
Fresh bread in the coffee shop Picados below the apartment or in the shops at 10’ walking
There are several good restaurants in the neighborhood and for the price of the menu’s you can’t cook yourself!
For visiting the island we didn’t rent a car: trips with a minibus are very interesting, to visit Funchal you can take the bus which stops in front of the apartment (€ 2,20 pp) – we made 3 levada-walks and asked Nyara to contact a taxi-driver and negotiate a fix price – the taxi picked us up where and when we asked
Minus points? NONE
Remarks? 1. A parasol on the balcony could be an advice
2. Television is old, but who needs a TV on such a beautiful island?

I'm always improving with the suggestions of my guests! Best regards!
Beautiful apartment in a great location
This apartment is as beautiful, if not more so, than the pictures show. Spacious, in great condition with tasteful and modern decor, and very well equipped. The kitchen had everything you needed to prepare meals and the washing machine/ironing board enabled us to travel light (which was great as most of our luggage was taken up with heavy hiking boots). Towels (including beach towels) were also provided and there is a great selection of books in the apartment - both of which also cut down on the amount of things you need to pack. We stayed for two weeks and it really felt like a home from home (but with much much better views - it was fantastic sitting out on the balcony enjoying the uninterrupted views of Atlantic ocean).
Nadia was absolutely lovely! She was quick to respond to our booking enquiry, helpful throughout the process, even arranging for a taxi transfer from the airport for us on our arrival. She met us at the apartment and showed us around and also gave great tips on what to do and where to eat. There is a good bus service on Madeira and a bus stop outside the apartment. The buses were roughly hourly, but if you walk up the road (3-4 min) into the main street of Garajau (where the cafes, restaurants, shops, pharmacy and bank are) there are a few more options as some of the other bus routes into Funchal go through here. Walking the levadas and mountains was the main aim of our holiday. It is possible to do this using the buses (you would need to catch bus into Funchal and then transfer to another bus route), but we decided to hire a car so that we had flexibility on location and length of walk (book online in advance for best price - we used rentalcargroup - InsularCar - who have a Garajau office). The apartment has a basement car park with an allocated parking space.
Garajau is an excellent place to stay. Away from the noise and touristy traps of Funchal, but with a good selection of cafes/restaurants. There is a small supermarket in the main street where you can get essentials, but two larger supermarkets fairly close by (including one in Canico which is a short bus ride away - although we were happy to walk here - about 1 mile and fairly level). We found a lovely restaurant in Canico (La Terraca). Food was great and the staff were lovely!
I would definitely stay in Nadia's apartment again and have already recommended it to friends and family. Thanks Nadia for a fantastic holiday!
