Spacious, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our one week stay in this well equipped, spacious apartment. It was a lovely place to relax, having furnished balconies on either side, both with sea views, and very comfortable lounge and dining areas. Inevitably with busy roads around, there is some traffic noise but this was not a problem for us. The apartment is fortunate to have a public garden below it to one side and we felt this was an added bonus, enhancing the sea view from the apartment. It was also great to have two bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and had various welcome basic supplies in the cupboards. Jane provided us with useful information in advance and we really liked the local bakery and fruit and vegetable shop up the hill from the apartment. We rented a car and found this useful, especially as the island has different micro-climates and we were able to head out to the west and north which tended to have more sun in early June when we were there. We were able to use the parking space available in the apartment car park (recommended for small car only). We walked into the centre of Funchal, this is a pleasant 20 minute walk down the hill and along the main avenue, with several lovely gardens along the way. We didn't use the buses but this would be an option as they stop near the apartment. We ate out at various restaurants in Funchal and the Lido area (at a similar distance from the apartment) and enjoyed the free live street music and fireworks in Funchal during the festival taking place while we were there. The apartment was a great base for exploring this beautiful island and the different areas of Funchal.

Perfect apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Funchal but our first in an apartment. From the original inquiry Jane was very prompt with her responses, no question went unanswered. The photographs don't do the property justice, it's huge! Light and airy with the bedrooms benefiting from external Venetian blinds so the rooms are very cool in heat of the day.

The furniture and equipment are of an excellent standard with the kitchen and lounge balconies both furnished. The apartment is located on an incline but nothing too drastic. The number 8 bus stops just outside the entrance if coming back from the town or if you get on the same bus it will take you up to the large supermarket Continente.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this amazing apartment to anyone and have Jane's details for any future visits to this wonderful island!

Immaculate apartment with fantastic ocean views.

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable escape from the uk winter. Funchal lights were on and the town buzzing with visitors from cruise liners and Madeirans . The refurbished sea front is a pleasant walk away. If you detour through Santa Catarina gardens the view over the harbour is spectacular. Food is excellent and plenty of choices not too far away. An island that rewards the explorer.

Very nice apartment and great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in January 2016, Jane was very helpful with advice and tips. The location was perfect for us, walkable to Funchal (15 minutes) and the Lido about the same. The apartment was well appointed and very clean. The only reason it does not get 5 stars is that it can be a little noisy from traffic but that would not stop us returning.
