About Mr Joao Correia

My wife and I enjoy Madeira island, we love the peace and tranquility.

We are a profesional middle aged couple, with a daughter studying languges in the UK.

We thoroughly enjoy walking, swiming and everything that comes with family life.

We love to get away from all the daily stress and relax by the sea.

We are natives from the island and this property is our slice of heaven.

We would love to share our home with you and the beautiful island of Madeira

We always like to go away and stay on private rentals, we feel that is the only away we can enjoy the locals and the real way of life, and is this experience we offer in our property

Also we like the freedom and be away from everything

Mr Joao Correia purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Mr Joao Correia chose Santa Luzia

We have this apartment because we are Madeirains living abroad, and this apartment to us represents what madeira is all about.In one of the best residencial areas, with banana plantations and lot of tropical gardens around.And with the all the services walking distance.Also very quiet with everything at our door step.

This apartment offers a Home from Home feel, very quiet nest, but with all around your feet. A real Madeira experience, living with the locals, also the apartment is very spacious, and with lots of sunlight, and views to die for.

We love countryside walks and explore the levadas and valleys of madeira and this location we can be in the middle of the island in a short time.

We know that if you have to share a bit of paradise, madeira is the place to have and share.

Very easy to explore the city and to go around the island by bus or your own car .

We love to have everything nearby but at the same time, have our own piece of heaven, peace and quiet . We can get out of the apartment and strait away emerge ourselves with the locals without been pressurise in all the usual holiday money grab .

Here is where our heart beats.

What makes this apartment unique

Lots of light, beautifull furniture.

Near the town center but away from the noise .

The views from one of the bedrooms and also from the living room is to die for, also the facing south varanda where you can enjoy your meals, or read a book in peace.

Local Manager available at your service always.

But in the midle of beautiful colinial Houses.

Come a see how the real Madeirains live, be part of the local traditions and culture

Very comfortable and roomy with spectacular views from balcony

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend this property. Madeira is very hilly so we often walked into town (down hill) and got the bus back (up hill!). Get a Giro pass for the yellow buses and save a fortune. Would definitely come back to Madeira and to this property.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment with balcony on the top floor.

The apartment feels like a home, and cutlery etc. seems coherent.

When we booked via Homeaway, we couldn't see the things written in small. Only "but" in this case and not part of the price, has been, that we were told after the booking, that we should pay in addition 20€ on arrival for "greeting service" - a local representative would meet us with the key, and quickly show us the apartment.

The apartment is situated a bit up hill. Walking to town is therefore not done in five minutes, but if you have a car, it is very conveniently placed with quick access roads and a nice view over the town. We loved it.

The owner has been very nice all the way.

Nice clean and quiet place. We missed nothing.

Hope to come back again.

A home from home (but with a better view)

  • 5 of 5

A spacious, well-kept apartment with a truly beautiful view. It had everything that we needed and more that added to the holiday feel. Really comfortable and functional with two lovely bathrooms, a great dining room/lounge area and the balcony which was our perfect breakfast destination with a sea view. What more could you want?

Wonderful flat with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We got a wonderful flat with everything you need .It was clean, calm ,easy parking ,

great view from the balcony to funchal and the habour.For cooking we missed a coated pan, a bigger cooking pot and a salad bowl. We can recommand this flat to

nearly everyone ,except people with disabilities (because to much stairs to the flat).

We liked walking to the levadas here we found a lot of books to create our hikingtours.

This apartment is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in a very safe residential area named Pena/Santa Luzia.

Beautiful views over Funchal's Habour.

Just around the corner are the Palmeira Botanical Gardens!

Near the apartment, is the local bus (number 26) which runs from early morning to midnight. Weekly bus passes cost about 23 euros per person.

If you hire a car, there is plenty private parking. The nearest supermarket is about a 5 minute drive.


Madeira offers 52 villages, enough to visit one everyday of the year!

However, Funchal city centre has a local farmers market where you can get your local fresh produce at very good price too!

The centre is a brisk walk and there you can even catch a cable car to Monte Village. Here you can enjoy a typical Tabogan ride back to town centre.

Funchal offers lot of great restaurant, 7 days a week.

In the town centre there is a church, an old sector with lovely narrow streets and a wide variety of cuisines.

For a day trip, taking the local bus from Funchal to 'The Valley of the Nuns' , you can admire the beautiful scenery and try the local chestnut liqueur. Great for walkers. Walk along the Madeiran water ways commonly known as 'levadas'.

For sunbathers, there are two new golden sandy beaches and lots of lido swimming facilities.

Whale and Dolphin watching are also available from the harbour in town and you can even spot a turtle if you're lucky ! Porto Santo ( a nearby island) can be reached by ferry for a more tranquil day.
