Fantastic apartment. Will definitely stay there again
Filomena was a delightful and charming host. She collected us from the airport and drove us to the apartment, which is really lovely. The garden outside is stunning and built on terraces with lovely flowers and tropical plants. Everything we needed was in the apartment and everything worked very well. The view from the balcony is stunning and we really enjoyed the bus rides in and out of Funchal on the 33 bus as they come up and down the mountain and again there are amazing views on the bus journey. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend staying in this beautiful apartment to anyone. Dominique - 5th June 2017

(In case the rating is not 5-star, that is what we intended; our computer has trouble picking up the blue rating stars, so we had to guess where they were.)
This apartment on the hill overlooking Funchal was WAY nicer than we expected--it is a tremendous bargain for what we got. First, the view of Funchal and the bay was absolutely spectacular, and the sunsets could not be matched anywhere in the world. Filomena was a joy to deal with, so enthusiastic and helpful. (Why did we imagine she would be a dowdy old lady; she's not old and she's very pretty!) The place was well equipped and charming, very comfortable. It is only a 5-minute ride down the hill to the center of Funchal, where one can find delectable restaurants, and ride the cable cars up to Monte, then take a weird basket sled ride down precipitous streets, the thrill of a lifetime. The apartment is well placed and near to lots of amenities. We thought this was one of the nicest places out of the several houses we rented in Portugal. If we had known how beautiful it is, we would have stayed much longer.
Für anhaltend schlechtes Wetter zu kalt, Einkäufe oder Restaurantbesuche nur mit PKW möglich
Die Vermieterin (Filomena) war bei den wenigen Begegnungen freundlich und hilfsbereit, womit sich die Übereinstimmung mit den von uns gelesenen Bewertungen aber auch schon erschöpft.
Bestätigen möchte ich allerdings auch den fantastischen Blick über Funchal und Umgebung, wobei die Fotos nicht erkennen lassen, dass sich durch den Vordergrund des Blickfelds die Autobahn (via rapida) zieht, die nicht nur optisch sondern auch akustisch nach unserer Auffassung durchaus störend bemerkbar macht. Allerdings nimmt man diesen Geräuschpegel bei geschlossenen Fenstern kaum wahr, so dass er für uns bei 14 Tagen Sturm, Regen und Nebel keine Rolle spielte. Unangenehmer war unter diesen Umständen, dass zur Beheizung der in der Tat geräumigen Wohnung nur ein kleiner Elektroheizkörper zur Verfügung stand, der weder für eine behagliche Raumtemperatur noch für eine Reduzierung der witterungsbedingten sehr hohen Luftfeuchtigkeit sorgen konnte. Das hatte zur Folge, dass die Fenster meist von innen beschlagen waren und Spül- oder Badetücher nicht trockneten.
Potenzielle Mieter sollten auch wissen, das bis auf den Palheiro-Golfplatz und den gleichnamigen Park (Palheiro-Gardens) wohl kaum ein Ziel zu Fuß in kurzer Zeit zu erreichen ist, dass Einkäufe oder Restaurantbesuche das Auto unentbehrlich machen, es sei denn man nutzt den Busverkehr (Haltestelle in der Nähe). Der nächst Supermarkt ist knapp 4 km entfernt, das Stadtzentrum 7-8 km und ist m. E. in keinem Fall in 5 Minuten erreichbar. Allein die serpentinenreiche Fahrt den Hang hinunter und das Erreichen der via rapida über eine Reihe von Stoppstraßen dürfte für den ortsunkundigen Touristen mindestens diese Zeit in Anspruch nehmen.
Unser Fazit: Wegen ihrer Abgelegenheit bei trotzdem viel zu wahrnehmbarer Nähe zur Autobahn käme diese Wohnung für uns auch unter idealen Wetterbedingungen nicht mehr in Frage. Vermutlich hätten wir diesen Aufenthalt bei sorgfältigerer Ortung der Lage vor Buchung vermeiden können. Die Kommentare zu Wohnung waren für uns nicht hilfreich.
Dear Dr. Joseph,
It was with much apprehension and disgust that I learned of your discomfort in my residence.
I am very sad and I am sorry that you have not manifested that during your stay in the times that I visited you, especially because some of the problems you mentioned could have been solved.
From the abnormal weather that was felt during your stay, and the mountainous and rugged landscape that characterizes the island of Madeira, I could not do nothing but the rest i have been myself available and asked several times during your stay if all would be well and if you needed anything more , It's difficult for me to understand that , but I accept .
Previous guests never asked me for more heaters, for this reason there were no more heaters, but if you had asked I would do it imediatly.
Distances: If you take the right way 3,5 km city center, supermarket 2 km, Palheiro gardens, Restaurants Tea house, restaurant Palheiro Golf, restaurant Casa Velha do Palheiro, SPA and snak bar A minha Avó, approximately 800 m, the expressway can be seen in the second photo on the website.
Finally, there would have been an alternative in another villa in the center, but it would have been necessary you to have manifested your discomfort during your stay.
Once again thank you for your preference and with humility i accept your opinion.
I wish you and your familly happy Easter.
Very nice stay at Funchal
We stayed 2 weeks in this beautiful holiday flat which was really great as we have expected it from the pictures. Good and functional kitchen for self cooking, clean bed rooms. It’s a spectacular view from the terrace or garden over Funchal day or night. The garden has a lot tropical plants and different barbecue and lovely seat places. Landlord Mrs. Filomena is a very friendly and helpful person. We would anytime choose again this place for vacation instead of large concrete hotels. Thanks very much for the pleasant stay.
