About Richard T. S. Harris

Elaine and I have been running this self catering apartment as well as the adjacent Villa for about 9 years now. We just want our clients to be happy and content. We have lots of good reviews. The beauty of this apartment(and the Villa) is its proximity to the town centre.

Richard T. S. Harris purchased this Apartment in 2006

Why Richard T. S. Harris chose São Martinho

                                                              We had a great time staying here and it was ideal for exploring Funchal, an all round really enjoyable experience and lovely house. Only down side was no washing machine as stated.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              So sorry about the washing machine , it had broken. It is being replaced.

                                                              If you had mentioned that you needed to do washing, you could have used the one at the house with pleasure. Sorry we didn't mention it.

                                                              So pleased that you had an enjoyable time. Elaine Tyler Harris

                                                              Perfect location - nice, quiet location

                                                              Hilde L.

                                                              We spent one week in Funchal, and wanted to live somewhere convenient for bustransport around the Island. It is in short walkingdistance to all buses, restaurants both good "local" ones and downtown the old city. The flat is perfect for two, clean and well equipped. Both the owners and the driver who picked us up at the airport were very friendly and helpful. We would definately recommend staying here.

                                                              First visit to Madeira

                                                              Richard & Lesley B.

                                                              We enjoyed the apartment - it was close enough to the centre of Funchal to make walking easy (which is one of the reasons we were there) - and it was both clean and well appointed. If, as we intend, we return to the island and its capital, this is where we'd stay

                                                              First visit to Madeira

                                                              Richard & Lesley B.

                                                              Our first impressions were justified - the apartment is clean, well appointed and ideally situated for a first visit to Madeira and Funchal in particular. We'd certainly want to use it again if we return to Funcahl as we intend.

                                                              Quinta Elena, Funchal

                                                              A wonderful apartment! Very well equipped, very pretty property - you will feel right at home! A short walk from funchal town centre, where you will find beautiful restaurants, bars and shops. You will also be able to book tours around the island that will pick you up from the apartment. The apartment is tucked away in a quiet street so no noise. Well worth the money, would definitely recommend - would love to go back myself!

                                                              Jo & TomWest London, UK

                                                              Nice apartment, well equipped, clean and well maintained with secure private entrance. Also good location for access to Funchal facilities. If using car hire then parking can be challenging. We had a very good holiday with lovely evenings spent in town centre. Would defenitely recommend.


                                                              São Martinho, Funchal, Portugal

                                                              Funchal is the well known and interesting capital of Madeira - an island famous for its all round year very mild and pleasant climate, and renowned for the masses of flowers and spectacular flowering trees. Near to the house & apartment is the lovely St. Catarina´s Park with its viewing areas over the harbour where you can see the cruise ships arriving and departing. Within easy walking distance of the apartment you have many good quality restaurants, shops and bars and also The Casino. The city centre is only a 10/15 minutes easy downhill walk away with museums, quality shops, restaurants, outside street cafes, wine cellars and the cathedral; just some of the highlights. Visits can be made by cable car to both the gardens at Monte and also the Botanic Gardens and you can and also enjoy the downhill toboggan ride in a basket. Buses go in all directions to various parts of the Island. Levada walking is very popular and two man made beaches make sea swimming possible. Golf: There are two golf courses on Madeira and one very nice new course on Porto Santo. The two on Madeira are a 30 minute drive away and of course the third one is on the Island of Porto Santo some two hours away by boat or 15 minutes away by air.
