Best Location on the Island

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed here for 16 nights. The accommodations were perfect. Very clean, breathtaking view. The location was excellent - it's away from the busy area of downtown Funchal but still accessible. We didn't need a car. It was a 10 minute walk to the grocery store and a few nice restaurants. We walked into Funchal (about 45 minutes to the start of the downtown area) and from there walked into old town. We had planned on taking a bus back, however, we walked home as well. If you enjoy walking, it's not a problem. We also walked to the fishing village of Camara de Lobos - about 35 minutes. Really nice place to go for lunch. Niara was very helpful and gave us many tips and great advice. She checked in with us during our holiday to make sure that things were okay. I would also highly recommend that you ask Niara to arrange a jeep tour with Miguel. We took 2 off-roading tours with him of the island. He's an excellent guide and makes the day really fun. We will definitely be back to Madeira and we will stay at this apartment again. Many thanks Niara and Miguel.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words! I'm happy you have enjoyed your holidays and your stay. Yes, it is true we are in an unique location by the beach, in Formosa beach, in the middle of a walking path along the coast that starts in Lido and finish in Câmara de Lobos, with breathtaking views. The way to Funchal is short if you take the main road (where you can find the busses running) but this walking path, although taking more time, is much more beautiful and enjoyable with natural pools and plenty of coffee shops and restaurants with esplanades by the sea. It was all my pleasure giving you the best tips for having the best holiday as possible! You will always welcome here!

perfect views, well equipped apartment, great host

  • 5 of 5

As we all decided after our autumn vacation - that was the best vacation!!!!. Special thanks to Niara - she took responsibility for very warm welcome; told the best places to visit, explained the most interesting activities we should take.

Another biggest impression - views and sounds of the ocean - they are unforgettable!!!

Tranquil apartment by the sea & gardens

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a tranquil apartment but it was twice better what I was expecting! Waiking up with the birds singing or taking my breakfasts at the balcony overlooking the sea is something I will never forget! With huge glass windows with sliding doors opening onto the huge balcony, I was surprised that I would see amazing views either from the living room but also from the bedroom and even from the kitchen! I spend one relaxing week here and I would never have had to leave it! Very spacious and well apointed, the apartment has everything you need for a tranquil and comfortable staying, making you fell at home all the time. I'll be back for sure!!
