A short break in Madeira
This is a lovely, well equipped apartment, maintained in excellent condition and spotlessly clean with plenty of space for a family with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
It is well located with an excellent bus service directly outside the apartment, and for the more energetic, there is a 25 minute walk into the heart of Funchal.
The only minor negative issue is that it is situated on a main road and at times there is some traffic noise, but overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this quality apartment.
Perfect apartment in a great location
We have had a wonderful week in this apartment. Jane has provided everything that you could possibly need. The view from the kitchen balcony is amazing and it was a pleasure to prepare breakfast while watching the sun rise and the cruise ships coming into port. We used the other balconies later in the day for afternoon sun. The bus stop right outside the apartment is very useful for getting to the supermarket which is up a steep hill. We decided not to take the bus back and walk back down. It is a fifteen minute walk back down the hill from the supermarket and you get a great view on the way down. The location was great as we were in between the old town and the lido area. It is any easy and interesting walk downhill to the old town and a couple of times we used a taxi to return to the apartment at a cost of five euros. Before we arrived Jane sent lots of very helpful information regarding buses attractions bakeries nearby etc. When we arrived Gill who looks after the apartment was waiting to meet us and show us around. The apartment is very well kept and spotlessly clean. We plan to return to Madeira and would love to stay here again.
Fabulous spacious apartment.
John and I decided at the last minute to take a winter break. On contact with Jane ,the owner, she quickly dealt with all our questions and queries. She sent us photos of the building, maps for recommended cafes and restaurants, info on trips, swimming pools and a variety of helpful information. She arranged for Gill to meet us there and she became our helper on the island particularly on an evening when we fused the lights. Gill was invaluable. The flat is lovely and modern with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The kitchen was well fitted out with everything we needed. We loved sitting out on the balcony in the kitchen having our breakfast. The TV has loads of channels, many in English, so we could stay in and have a movie night occasionally.
The apartment is close to the city and walkable to all parts. There is a bus stop actually outside the apartment block but we enjoyed the daily walk.
The apartment is right next to a busy road so noise can be an issue and on quite a steep hill but it didn't put us off walking every day.
We had hired a car and spend time exploring the island ourselves but there are plenty of bus trips or private hire trips so it is not essential.
I would recommend this lovely apartment
a spacious and well furnished apartment with three balconies allowing plenty of leisure space
we enjoyed the good location of the apartment being within walking distance of the old town and the newer tourist areas.the bus stop outside the entrance takes you to the large supermarket about two miles away.We found plenty of restaurants and bars locally and were able to book our Island trips from one of the many agents shops in the vicinity. A beautiful and interesting island ---we shall return and hopefully book this comfortable apartment again.
Home from home
We had a marvellous holiday in Madeira staying in Jane's apartment during January 2018. The apartment is very spacious and would accommodate 6 people easily, though we didn't feel it was too big for just us two. The fact that there are two bathrooms makes life so much easier. There are lovely views to towards the sea from the kitchen balcony which faces south. We enjoyed many breakfasts sitting here watching the boats pass by. The lounge and two larger bedrooms have balconies where we sat later in the afternoon. The kitchen was spacious and very well equipped and it was therefore easy to self cater. The whole apartment was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Jill the apartment manager was really welcoming and helpful. We will certainly stay here again in the near future, as we really did feel that we were at home. And, the two local bakeries within walking distance were amazing.
Great Apartment and I would highly recomend renting it !!!
The apartment is very modern, the neighbors are very friendly, The building is extremely secure, Jane, the owner was superb to deal with, clear communications from A to Z... I would definitely stay there again
Rhode Island USA
Situated on the first floor but with views of the ocean and overlooking the nearby Magnolia Gardens.The property is served by a lift to all floors from the ground floor entrance and the secure underground car parking.The property is located near Reids Hotel famous for its afternoon teas. The roof of the building offers panoramic views of the city and the bay of Funchal and should provide one of the best vantage points from which to enjoy the New Year's eve fireworks display. Buses stop outside the apartment for those wishing to explore Funchal and the rest of the island using public transit.
