This spacious house is 40 years old. Located in a quiet neighborhood, away from tourist resorts, 110 meters above sea level. It's a 15 minute walk to the center of Funchal and a 17 minute drive from the airport. A perfect location from which to explore the island as it's very central to go either east or west, as well as north. The city is a monument in itself. There are many things you can see and do in Funchal, like visiting the market, the Madeira wine museum, taking a boat trip to watch dolphins and whales, taking a cable car to the gardens of Monte, going on levada walks, etc. From the front side of the house you have views over the mountains and from the backside views over the ocean and the center of Funchal. The house has 3 bedrooms (all three with a double bed) and 3 bathrooms, a living room leading to the front yard, a dining room and a kitchen leading to the backyard. TV and Wi-Fi internet available, as well as a washing machine and laundry lines. All the windows have mosquito screens.
I'm from the Netherlands and my husband is originally from this beautiful island. We are temporarily living in Madeira and are enjoying the pleasant climate. Our children are grown up and are studying in France.
The climate is pleasant all year round and the sun shines more often than in other parts of the island.
It's well located, away from the tourist area, on a hill overlooking Funchal and the ocean. In this location it feels more like living in a quiet town rather than in a city and yet you are in walking distance to the center of town.
The backyard is ideal for sun bathing because it's private. It's also a great place to sit or have a meal outside all year round. You can drink coffee on the balcony upstairs, and enjoy the wonderful views.
The house is spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. An easy walk down to the Old Town and shopping districts - much harder walk back uphill but one bus brings you to the door and 3 more drop you just around the corner for a short downhill stroll back! Some dog noise overnight but it certainly did not stop me sleeping better than I have in years, and evenings on the balcony looking over the harbour with a glass of something were thoroughly enjoyed.
Sietske is exemplary in her communications and the information provided at the house was comprehensive. In Sietske's absence we were met at the house by her friend Pauline who was also very welcoming and helpful. We would be very glad to stay here againg when we next get over to Madeira.
Das Haus ist riesig (120 qm) und die Vermieter sind sehr nett. Nachdem uns der Vermieter vom Hafen gegen einen vernünftigen Preis abends abgeholt hat saßen wir noch gemütlich bei Kaffee und kalten Getränken noch mindestens 1 Std zusammen. Viele nützliche Tipps wo man preiswerter essen oder einkaufen kann haben wir an dem Abend erfahren. Ein Tipp von uns ist , besucht das Bistro ca. 150 mtr den Berg runter (sehr leckere Gemüsesuppe und andere Speisen!!
Vielen dank nochmal für alles!!

It is a huge house that can accomodate even a big family too. It was clean and everything worked very well however don`t expect a fully refurbished, modern place. Most of the equipment was old-fashioned therefore it had a special time-back atmosphere.:)
But to be honest who cares about this when you have got such a lovely welcome from the owners, Sietske and Aurelio? They were always at our disposal and showed true care when they showed around Funchal and gave accurate guidance and tips about the island.
I can highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in a cosy place where you can feel that you are at home.
Sehr schöne Unterkunft,
schon der Blick von der Terasse über die Stadt und den Hafen überzeugt.
Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet, sauber und eher großzügig.
Es liegt sehr verkehrsgünstig zur Stadt und zur Schnellstrasse, ist aber trotzdem sehr angenehm ruhig.
Besonders angenehm war auch die Freundlichkeit ud Hilfsbereitschaft der Vermieter Sietske und Aurelio.
Wir waren sehr zufrieden.
The house exceeded our expectations and had everything and more that was promised. The hosts graciously met us with drinks and cookies and made certain that we were settled. They even gave us a tour of the neighborhood. The house was clean, quiet, spacious, and comfortable. It had a view of the cable car and mountain as well as a spectacular view of the city and ocean from the garden. We had gated off street parking. The apartment was a short walk down to the commercial and tourist and restaurant center and on the bus route for non walkers. The access to the highway was quick and easy for touring and hiking the entire island.. A few moments away was a small bistro with drinks and good, inexpensive food. We would recommend this listing and would stay there again on return.
Van eind april tot begin mei hebben wij met 5 personen gebruik gemaakt van dit huis in Funchal. Na een mooie rit van het vliegveld naar Funchal kwamen we aan bij het huis, alwaar je prachtig zicht hebt op de zee. De eigenaar, Sietske, heeft ons gastvrij ontvangen met een rondleiding door het huis en koffie en gebak . Het huis was heel ruim, we waren met 5 personen, er is zeker ruimte voor meer personen. We hadden de beschikking over 3 badkamers, met voldoende warm water voor iedereen. Het was fijn dat er een ruim terras was met zich op de zee. Het huis ligt in een buitenwijk van de stad. Er zijn mogelijkheden genoeg om de stad in te gaan of tochten over het eiland te maken. Een auto is wel aan te raden. Sietske heeft ons tips gegeven en was gedurende onze periode via telefoon en mail bereikbaar. We hebben erg genoten van ons verblijf op Madeira en kunnen dit huis zeker aanbevelen!
