Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Che is the perfect accommodation to stay in Machico. It is located in the heart of the town very close to the beach. All facilities such as restaurants, supermarkets, post office etc. are all very convenient to the apartment and you don't need to get the car: anything you might need is at five minutes walking distance.

On our arrival we were given a warm welcome by our hosts Cidalia and Kevin who had prepared for us some excellent snacks and a bottle of wine. They gave us a lot of good advices on what to do in Machico and provided us even with an useful hand-made map (showing all facilities) and a mobile phone for local calls.

The apartment was immaculate, extremely well equipped, stylish and comfortable, exactly as you see in the photos. There is the very best in furnishing and entertainment (also an iPod!) and in the kitchen you will find all the facilities you might need.

We'd have no hesitation in recommending this excellent apartment to anyone.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the airport and were met by a local taxi arranged by Cidalia (property owner). On arrival at the apartment, Cidalia and her partner Kevin greeted us and showed us around the apartment. They were both very welcoming and introduced us to the island by telling us things to do, places to eat and some basic Portuguese to get us going. The apartment and surrounding area were beautiful and close enough to Funchal to mean that getting there was easy and inexpensive..

The apartment itself is modern, spacious and extremely comfortable with everything you would need during your stay. For us it very much felt like a home away from home. Cidalia and Kevin were wonderful hosts. We felt no pressures at all during our stay and any time we made enquiries about something, they couldn't have been more helpful. At the start of the holiday Kevin suggested a couple of walks to us and was kind enough to drive us to the start of each of the two we decided to do. During the journey and on arrival at the start of the walk Kevin made us aware of the points to look out for and turns to make.

With plenty of bars, café's and restaurants close by, we can't recommend Casa Che highly enough.

You won't be disappointed.

Perfect apartment with perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

Machico and Casa Che proved the perfect base for our week's walking holiday on this side of Madeira. The apartment was very comfortable and perfectly equipped, but the highlight of our stay were our hosts Cidalia and Kevin. Kevin has a wealth of knowledge about walking in this part of the Madeira and, best of all, kindly took us to the start of walks and, when necessary, picked us up at the end. With his assistance, we were able to start and end our walks as and when we chose, which made our holiday far more relaxing and stress free. While the island is equipped with an exceptional bus service and taxis are numerous, having a 'friend' to put us on the right path ensured we had a great time. We were also delighted to find there was plenty of good and varied walking close to Machico. Kevin - a huge thanks again!

As great hosts they provided a welcome starter pack - the fruit, rolls and cold meat were especially welcome, as our flight arrived late. They also helped with restaurant recommendations, printed our return boarding passes and, amazingly, provided us with a local service mobile phone - a godsend when out walking and needing to call for a ride. Really, they have tried to think of everything you might need.

The apartment itself was very well situated in Machico: very close to the beach, supermarkets, restaurants and buses (if needed).

Machico is a tranquil picturesque town located on the south east side of the island. It was the landing point of the discoverers of Madeira in 1419. Machico prides itself on having the oldest church in Madeira dating back to the 15th century, and has two forts and numerous other places of historical interest.

It has a beautifully paved promenade dotted with fountains and a wonderful golden sand beach with crystal clear waters and good facilities for swimming and sunbathing.

Local amenities include restaurants, bars, public garden and parks, supermarkets, shops, banks with ATM's , post office, clinic, pharmacy.

Machico is well serviced with buses and taxis.

Campo do Golfo is conveniently situated close to Machico at Santo da Serra and the airport is a 5 minute drive away.

Machico is a good starting point for many of the breathtaking levada walks on the northeast side of the island,and is a relaxing alternative to the hustle and bustle of Funchal which is a twenty minute drive away.
