Overlooking the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much that we are thinking of going back next year. The flat is located outside the city centre but still in Funchal in the Lido area and does have various bus stops to get you anywhere. It is in a block of flat , very quite i must say, probably because it is used mainly in the summer time, in fact in our 10 days i only met one lady coming in and saw a gentleman looking after the private garden a few times. The flat is a spacious 1 bed ideal for a couple, there is space for a kid too though. Do not be fooled by the pictures as although there is nothing to suggest what the bathroom and main room are , they are pretty adequate. The kitchen is well furnished with a small balcony. The living room is very spacious and well furnished with dinner table, coffe table, sofa, chair and a balcony providing a fantastic view of the ocean . We spent our breakfast time trying to make out if there were any whales or dolphins in the area ( next time i will bring binoculars). The bathroom is petit but well equipped with a walk in shower while the bedroom is very comfortable. The whole flat was adorned with fresh local flowers and we even got some goodies to get us started. It is not every day that one gets into a rented flat and find chilled beer, tonic water, fresh water and wine waiting!

The cheery on the top was the free transfer, both ways, to and from the airport.

All in all an excellent flat located outside the main city centre ideal for a couple wanting to explore the island.

Great view, good location, poor amenities.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I just spent 16 days in this wonderful apartment. We were met at the airport by Judith and driven to the apartment. This was greatly appreciated as we arrived at night. She even drove us around Funchal a bit to see some of the Xmas lights!

Our first impression of the place was not great due to the lack of amenities. There wasn't even any toilet paper! As it was after 10 at night we didn't even have a chance to buy any. No paper towels, not even water in the fridge. We got up early the next morning to make a trip to the grocery store. Fortunately there is a fairly big Pingo Doce about a 6 minute walk up and down the next street (and I do mean up and down, your legs are going to get a workout).

Judith stopped by on her lunch break with toilet paper and paper towels but by then we had already bought our own. She seemed embarrassed about the over sight.

The apartment is nicely furnished, big bed, lots of pillows, induction stove with oven, washing machine, lots of plates but few glasses and cups. It had enough cutlery for 2 but if you have company you may be short. Hardly any knives and no spatula! Had to use the cheese server to flip my eggs.

The view from the balcony is spectacular! Got to watch the tour boats come and go all day. There is a private pool area where you can sun tan but no access to the ocean. It's about a 15-20 minute walk to the harbour and there are tons of bars and restaurants nearby. I recommend the Solar da Ajuda (awesome steak on a stone) and the Hole in One Bar (live entertainment).

Overall this is a great place to stay. I would recommend that the owner ensure that the basic amenities are stocked, beef up the utensils and glasses, and provide a second set of Keys! It was a bit of a pain if we wanted to do something separate!

We absolutely loved the apartment - spotlessly clean and in a great location.

Only comment is that the kitchen equipment could do with being upgraded as it’s rather basic - could do with selection of cooking knives, a better corkscrew and more bowls/plates for serving.

The perfect spot

  • 4 of 5

This is an excellent apartment in a superb location. We were very comfortable in this accommodation - it was spacious and had wonderful views from the balcony. The reason we have only given it 4* instead of 5* is due to the lack of basic essentials in the kitchen , ie lack of wine glasses and poor quality and quantity of the cutlery. We provided some wine glasses ourselves. The bed linen was not the best and we when we changed the bedding later in the holiday, we couldn't find anything that fitted properly. A better supply and quality of towels would also be a benefit as would some decent coat hangers, which, again, we found it necessary to buy a few to get us out of trouble. The shower heads have still not been rectified. Having said all of this, we would not hesitate to come again, especially if these things were dealt with. Sheila & Peter 04/11/2017

Clean tidy fabulous flat.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful tidy clean flat with most of everything needed. Close to shops and Funchal centre with excellent sea views. Wonderful shared garden and pool. Our only gripe would be the kitchen lacked a few essentials, but we were able to manage. Maybe invest in, a few sharp knives, a variety of mixing bowls, serving bowls and some kitchen cooking implements. Overall we had an excellent holiday and will certainly try to return.
