About the property

Sleeps 4. Large south-facing balcony with sea views

This lovely apartment is situated in a quiet residential area immediately above Funchal – a wonderful oasis of calm so close to the city centre. The modern apartment is furnished to a very high standard. There are two large double bedrooms (one with separate access onto the full-length balcony), a spacious, well-equipped fitted kitchen which is very light and airy with a second dining area. A spacious lounge with comfortable sofas leads onto a large balcony over-looking the half-moon pool with views to the sea and the port of Funchal and the ferries and liners coming and going, and the balcony gives one of the best possible positions to watch cable cars making their way up to Monte and the firework displays in June and at the New Year. The complex has just been fully redecorated and the communal pool is well maintained with loungers situated around the pool for your use - we also supply a beach towel per person. Cafes, restaurants and supermarkets are all within five minutes’ walk. A new large-format flat screen TV was installer in late 2012 and Wi-Fi (free) and additional cable channels added in September 2013 together with new balcony furniture.

The apartment is licensed for tourism under the strictly-regulated Madeiran 'Alojemente Locale' scheme (AL). The scheme requires holiday villas to conform to high safety, quality, service and insurance standards.

Very good large apartment equipped with everything you might need and excellent position in Funchal

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week

The climb up to the apartment is short but fairly steep excellent for anybody to improve their health I was glad we did not hire a car at the airport because I feel it would’ve taken two days off our holiday trying to find the apartment We used Manuel to and from the airport as advised by Peter excellent service speaks good English reliable and reasonable price All in all if I was staying in Funchal again I would not hesitate to stay in Peters lovely apartment

I liked the look of this apartment and made the decision to book it as the reviews were so good. Well, we weren't disappointed. Peter has been very helpful right from the start before we even arrived in Madeira. We wanted to use the transport links and have a break from the car, Peter gave us all the info we needed. We arrived after a fairly lengthy delay and realised we had quite a long wait for the aerobus so rang Peter for his advice. He arranged for a taxi to come and get us at a reasonable price. The apartment didn't disappoint either, it is spacious, well equipped and very well situated. We used the public transport which was excellent. There is a supermarket in Funchal which is less than a 10 minute walk. The walk back up to the apartment is up a short, steep hill which may be difficult for elderly or pushing a buggy however, if you hire a car there is a large garage in the basement of the apartment which would overcome that problem. As has been mentioned before, the photos don't do the pool justice, it's much bigger than it looks and lovely to cool down at the end of the day, there's also a smaller toddler pool next to it. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Madeira and Peter's apartment.

Owner's Response: Delighted you enjoyed your stay - the apartment is always very popular. The small hill is good exercise, and also very important, because without it you wouldn't have the fantastic views over the city and bay!

An excellent well appointed and located apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just had 1 week which was very enjoyable the pool was a nice feature after a day out.

I would certainly recommend this apartment it is only a 10 - 15 minute walk down into the heart of Funchal. It was very pleasant to sit on the balcony and take in the view of the cable cars and the sea.

Owner's Response: Yes - the apartment is unusually spacious - a lot of the later builds cut down on size to pack more in, but this is not the case here. The location is very good for both the "old" and "new" towns, but with it being slightly elevated it has both views and peace and quiet.
