Why Cath chose São Martinho

We purchased this property because of the location, being situated on the road above ESTRADA MONUMENTAL it is perfect, peaceful and close to all amenities.

Another main point is the temperature, being the south it's always warm and bright.

Great location, great home, great host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early January, so the off-season, such as it is. The town was still full of visitors, and I could see Funchal being a mad-house. That makes this location even better. The home is located walking distance to plenty of great restaurants, bars, shopping, without being in the middle of it. Perfect spot to have a little calm and quiet, but having access to everything you'd want. The home is clean, cute, modern, with an amazing view. The picture of the rock and the sea is entirely accurate. That's your view from the couch. The house has security access, quiet neighbors, and is really comfortable.

Our host arranged to have us picked up at the airport, deposited at the home, and met us there. Check in was really flexible, we arrived in the morning, left late in the afternoon. Maybe this is different when it's busier, but we really appreciated having the host work around our flights, and not requiring arbitrary check in and out times. She was super friendly, responded to questions promptly, including general tourist inquiries.

I'd really recommend this place and our host Kath. Great experience in a great place.

Lovely apartment on top floor of four storey block.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has a fabulous view, overlooking the sea, and is in a relatively quiet area of the town. There are numerous bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk, and the apartment itself is spotlessly clean and well furnished. There is an allocated car space in the basement carpark, although it is a bit fiddly trying to park in it. Any car larger than a 'compact' would have difficulty fitting into the space.

Both bedrooms have ample wardrobe space, and the kitchen, although small, has plenty of crockery and utensils.

Would thoroughly recommend staying in this apartment.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very homely and we were very comfortable there. It had everything we needed. Great view. Easy walk to restaurants, supermarket, Lido and promenade. Buses into Funchal nearby. Parking space for hire car very useful. Would happily stay there again.

(Do not use google maps to get directions - they were hopeless and we had to be rescued by the lovely Cath!)

Absolutely beautiful apartment, Cath is a wonderful and welcoming host. The apartment is close to some fantastic restaurants and has lovely views. Perfectly situated to visit the whole island. We look forward to stopping again. Thanks Cath!

Ideal location, and beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was spacious and well equipped. Cath was very lovely, and met us at the apartment when we arrived. The view from the living room was beautiful. It was very close to a supermarket, and you can take a lazy stroll into Funchal in about 45 minutes. There is a parking space which makes the apartment all the more convenient.

Unfortunately there was some unforeseen building work during our stay, which blocked the view, however we received some compensation for those days.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

Really loved Cath and Jorge's apartment, a real home from home which was needed as we stayed for almost a month. Comfy sofas and beds, large tv with a few English channels, efficient Wifi, clean well equipped kitchen with a double electric oven and 4 ring gas hob (if you need it!) Brilliant sea view from the lounge where you can watch the Santa Maria sailing by and fishing boats and catamarans. The lack of a balcony wasn't an issue as the armchairs could be placed next to the French doors in the lounge. There was also access to the roof where there were sun loungers, a bistro set where you could have breakfast or a glass or two in the evening. Everything in the apartment was spotless. Nothing was too much trouble and if there had been a problem, Cath was not far away. The only time we had to contact her was to arrange the linen change every week. On arrival we had a lovely welcome pack of milk, butter, ham, cheese etc and some super fresh fruit from Cath's garden. Loads of great places to eat and drink in the locality and hundreds more to choose from after a 20 min walk or short bus ride into Funchal. Prices reasonable everywhere, hotels welcome non-residents but are a little more expensive. We travelled all over the island on public transport which was brilliant (and cheap) when you got the hang of it. The only place to defeat us was a trip to the volcanic caves which we had to do through an independent tour company. There are many companies offering trips, a good majority linked with hotel chains who want you to attend promotional meetings before you get the discounted price for a tour. For a full day, our company charged 20 euros each + 6 euros (normally 8) for entrance to the caves plus stops at several viewing points and places of interest.. Worth every cent!! Booking a month not knowing anything about Madeira was a bit reckless but it all worked out as we totally fell in love with this incredible island. It isn't for everyone - there are no beaches (but a brilliant Lido nearby for a small charge) and you are either walking up a hill or down one, hardly any flat routes but the scenery is breathtaking and the people are friendly, polite and so patient, we didn't hear a car horn pressed in frustration all the time we were there. Can thoroughly recommend Cath and Jorge's cosy, homely apartment. Can't wait to return.

Peaceful location with amazing Atlantic views. Situated on the 4th floor of a well-appointed small block of apartments, very airy and with a bright environment you can relax and enjoy the views while being only a short walk from a the well known Lido area, with all the amenities, plenty of restaurants and entertainment or if you like evening strolls we are only 5 minutes from the promenade and sea water swimming pools with also a children s area. . . Only a 2 minute walk to a bus stop / 10 minutes by bus to Funchal center/harbor
