Situated in the stunning locale of Canico de Baixo the apartment is 10min drive from the airport and 10min from the City of Funchal. Overlooking the beach of Reis Magos it offers amazing views out to sea and of the nearby 'desertas' islands in a very tranquil area. 1 large living room that continues through double patio doors onto a large balcony overlooking the gardens and sea, flat screen TV, DVD, Cable with 111 channels (Portuguese, English, German, French + other languages) Telephone for incoming and local calls. 1 kingsize bedroom with TV, DVD, Cable with 111 channels (as above) Also has double doors leading onto the balcony. Fully equipped kitchen with laundry area with small reading library, Dining area both indoor and outside. Large Shower room with toilet, bidet and wash sink. Private parking area and elevator access with secure entry. 1 min from the beach, local fish restaurant, other restaurants and bars plus the bus stop is only a 2/300 meter walk. From here you can easily reach Funchal and the many Levada walks that are dotted around this area.
Scuba Diving: The base is located in Madeira's sole underwater nature reserve which is the only one in the Atlantic with the DIN-Certification and it has received awards for the best diving base
Transfer from the airport: Transfers from the airport can be easily arranged by me for you. This is arranged with a local company who will pick you up from the airport and take you directly to the apartment. They will also wait should there be any problems with delays, plus there are taxis right outside the airport if you would prefer to make your own way there.
Golfing: Palheiro golf course is only 7km away or 15mins by car. Classic hills, ridges,deep valleys and thoroughfares have all been incorporated into the terrain to produce a dramatically interesting course, with stunning views. Arrangements can easily be made for our clients at the Club (bookings etc) as well as a free informal chat with the local British golf captain and his wife, great, if you would like a more in depth guide.
Also the spectacular 27-hole Santo da Serra golf course [also known as Campo de Golfe part of the PGA European Tour] is within easy reach - 13km away. This is Madeira’s oldest golf course. It sits high up on a plateau and is marvelously scenic with inspirational views back up the mountains and out over the Atlantic below.
Car Hire: Once a booking has been made i have a list of car hire companies that i can send you should you wish to hire a car.
We had really a great time in Madeira and we were every day happy to stay in your wonderful apartment... especially the view was really lovely and my husband enjoyed very much your technical equipment.
We are sure, that we would like to come again - perhaps next year...
Thank you very much again for this great holiday
What a great apartment to spend a week in. We have had a wonderful time in Madeira and will definitely be back. The apartment is comfortable and had everything we needed, It is also near the bus stop which was perfect for us as we decided not to hire a car. Our thanks to Mike the owner.
See you next year
We stayed here in 2009 so knew what a magnificent location the apartment has and what facilities it had but there are even more since our last visit.
The apartment is spotless and very well equipped for cooking just about anything and has a large fridge freezer with ice maker section. Vast amount of utensils and knifes too.
Very modern TV's and was able to get around 30 English speaking channels including BBC and SKY news,
Wi Fi was excellent and was the first time we have had it on holiday and was nice to listen to our local Cornish news in the morning!
Although in a quiet location it is not far to the shops and we shopped mostly in Canico where there are large supermarkets and got our bread there daily.
We spent most days touring and the main road was quite close so most of the island is easily accessible.
Driving in Madeira is very easy and we managed 1300 kilometres during our stay and spent most of it in first and second gear in the mountains which are magnificent!
We ate several times at a great restaurant just below the apartment on the beach called Restaurante Praia dos Reis Magos and was probably the best food we had eaten on the island and in a superb setting and a great sun trap. At the weekend many locals ate there.
There is a small library in the utility section of the kitchen and even has a pair of binoculars to watch the many cruise ships that passes opposite the apartment.
Furniture on the balcony was very comfortable and even in November/December a lovely warm place to sit in the afternoon/evening till the sun goes down.
Another great change was there is a dedicated parking space in the basement which is accessed by a remote controlled door so you don't even have to get out of the car!
All in all a great place to stay and the photos in Homeaway are EXACTLY what you get!
The apartment was very clean and tidy and has all facilities required for a Holiday. The furnishings were of good quality and a very spacious apartment for 2 people. Living room was nicely proportioned with access to a lovely balcony which looked out over the sea. Kitchen was well equiped with everything you would want. Shower was good with plenty of hot water. Bedroom has ample storeage space and has access to balcony. The apartment is situated on a hill so you do need to be pretty fit to get up and down to the town centre. There is a bus stop a few minutes away which will take you to Funchal and beyond. Overall we were very happy with the apartment and the communication with the owner, Mike McCabe. We hadn't realised this area of Madeira was as "hilly" as it was so the location may not be suitable for disabled people or people who don't like walking. We would recommend to friends and family and would like to return sometime in the future.
We enjoyed our time in Madeira and explored the gardens, Funchal and walked across the glass platform to admire the view.
Wir verbrachten in diesem Appartment eine wunderschöne Zeit. Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war sehr professionell, zuvorkommend und freundlich. Wir entschieden uns sehr spontan für dieses Objekt und konnten innerhalb von 24 Stunden die wunderschöne Ferienwohnung beziehen. Das stilvolle Appartment ist komfortabel eingerichtet. Die Küche ist ein Traum! Am liebsten hielten wir uns auf dem Panoramabalkon auf, von dem man einen traumhaften Blick auf das Meer hat. Am Ende unserer Reise erhielten wir einen Transfer zum Flughafen mit einem zuverlässigen und sehr freundlichen Fahrer. Wir danken allen Beteiligten für diese schöne Zeit. Das waren wunderbare Ferien!
It's a great apartment, very clean and tastefully decorated with attention to detail. Lovely balcony with great view. Under cover secure car park. Definitely recommend. Make sure you visit inn and Ant hotel for amazing sea view restaurant.
