About the property

Luxury Sea View 2 bedroom penthouse in the most premium area of the city

Luxury oceanfront 2 bedroom penthouse located in one of the most premium areas in Funchal (aka 'The Hotel Zone') right next to its best-know beaches & lidos and still within walking distance of the old town and the main tourist attractions.

This is a modern and quite unique venue occupying the top floor (yeah no neighbours around!!!) of a seven-story closed condo, embracing the Atlantic Ocean and offering not only sweeping views but also best-in-class amenities (luxurious private garden, oceanfront infinity pool, high speed wireless internet, smart TV, music surround system...)

The apartment is very spacious and elegantly decorated, offering 2 large bedrooms (one of which is a seaview suite with a private bathroom) with king sized beds and ample wardrobes, a luminous living room with large windows and a seaview balcony (where our guests can enjoy a perfect breakfast...), a fully equipped kitchen and a second big bathroom.


The Neighborhood


The location is in one of the most sought-after areas of the city, well served by beautiful beaches and public lidos (that offer the warmest ocean water in Portugal) with very nice restaurants and beach bars around, as well as a spectacular coastal promenade.

There are also many hotels nearby offering top quality entertainment and a great ambiance overall.

On the opposite side of the street there is a modern shopping mall ('Madeira Forum') with a large selection of shops, a big supermarket, a food court, a multiplex movie theater and several ATM machines.


Getting around


There is a bus stop right in front of the condo and a frequent bus service to the city center operating from 6:20am to 23:40pm in every 10 or 15 minutes (lines 01 and 02 heading downtown). The trip takes about 15 minutes and bus tickets normally cost 2€/person if bought on-board (or 1,35€/person if bought in advance) although there are cheaper alternatives such as 3-day tickets (11,8€/person) and 5-day tickets (16,30€/person) that offer unlimited trips.

Taxis are also relatively cheap in Madeira and, depending on the hour/traffic, a ride downtown costs less than 10€ and takes about 10 minutes.

However, if you prefer to enjoy some magnificent views then you can also walk to the city center (~25 minutes) or to the old town (~50 min) although I don't recommend it on a regular basis.


Other things to note:


The venue is not suitable for guests with limited mobility because of a stairway with 14 steps (2 flights of stairs with 7 steps each) leading from the elevator hall to the front door.


Included (free) services:


- Private secure parking space

- Bath towels and bed linens

- High-speed wireless internet (30Mbps) available in every room

- Nespresso coffee machine

- Full range of kitchen appliances (induction hob, oven, pans, tableware, fridge, microwave, dish washing machine, laundry washing & drying machine, toaster, electric kettle, steam iron and board...)

- Hairdryer

Great spacious apartment with fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very spacious with everything you would need, 2 lovely big bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There was everything in the kitchen and separate utility rooms for washer and dryer. We felt very secure and at home, the apartment was very quite, peaceful and very private. The view was great and the outside space to apartment block very nice,well kept and very clean as was the apartment. We liked the location plenty of restaurants nearby but we also like to walk into Funchal where there are plenty of bars and restaurants and also on the way into funchal lots to choose from. The apartment was very handy for catching bus into funchal bus stop outside apartment gates. Over the road is the Forum shopping centre which had a very good pingo doce supermarket. We really enjoyed our stay and definately will stay there again.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are just coming to the end of our stay in this beautiful apartment in the Forum area of Funchal. I am happy to say that we have not been disappointed.

From the airport we caught the Aero bus which only costs €5 pp (or €8pp for a return ticket) and takes you directly into the main thoroughfare through Funchal to the Forum. If you advise the driver that you want to get off in the Forum area (bus stop number 19), you will be dropped off across the road from the complex.

On arrival at the Quinta Felicia we contacted Victor by phone and met him by the electronic gate leading into the complex. We were escorted up to our penthouse apartment via a lift up to level 6; we then had 2 flights of stairs (16 steps in total) to reach our apartment, this was not a problem to us and we had been advised of this before we booked the apartment. On entering the apartment we were thrilled with the spectacular views overlooking the sea, the infinity pool and the lovely well kept gardens. After showing us around and pointing out the facilities Victor gave us two sets of keys and presented us with a welcome pack that contained local delicacies such as Poncha, honey cake and biscuits; this gesture was so welcoming. Victor also advised us that should we need any assistance we could contact him; this is very reassuring as unexpected problems can happen.

The apartment includes everything that you need to make your stay very comfortable, including free high speed internet.

This is a lovely apartment that is run by friendly people who do as much as possible to make your holiday special. We would like to thank Miguel, the owner of the apartment for his organisation and very quick responses to our emails, and also to Victor for his friendliness and guidance.

Our thanks to you both for making this a really wonderful holiday.

My 50th

We thoroughly enjoyed Funchal Madeira and loved the apartment. It was very spacious and well equipped with amazing views of the ocean. Also outdoor area by the pool and gardens were exceptionally well maintained and provided a wonderful spot to relax and look out to the sea. Walking distance to many restaurants, shopping and much more.

Окно в ванной с видом на океан делало утренний душ особенно приятным. Спасибо Мигелю и Виктору за наш чудесный отдых.

A lovely modern apartment with excellent views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed its location by the sea, nearby Funchal's beautiful sea promenade, which is great for walking or running. That's where all the best hotels and restaurants are, as far as we could tell, and it is not far from the city centre (less than 15 minutes by bus, around half an hour on foot).

The apartment itself is airy, clean and beautifully decorated. Indeed, quite comfortable and really making us feel at home, in a good sense. Definitely 5 stars.
