Spacious, well equipped and lovely views and sun from balcony
We had an excellent three week stay and would hope to come again. The location was good for us with walks along the sea path in either direction. One supermarket has closed, perhaps for winter. The other is about 10 to 15 minutes away and has all you need. We spent lots of time on the balcony and saw a storm and sunsets. The sea is so close. Good restaurants nearby, through the tunnel. Dishwasher and washing machine very handy. The complex is well maintained and we made good use of the pool, even on cloudy days. No problem with ants if everything is kept in cupboards/fridge and wiped down. The door to the balcony does need some attention as it’s very stiff. Hope the second shower is fixed for next year as we may bring family. Lovely stay.
Thank you for the stay in my apartment and for your kind review!
Sorry for the inconvenience with the shower cabin - before your arrival we got the notice about the leak. Last week we changed the shower cabin to a new one.
We will also check the balcony door. Sometimes it becomes stiff due to the salty air from the ocean.
You're welcome to stay again next year!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Not the greatest stay that we have had.
The apartment is very hard to find - the owner omitted to tell us it was in a hotel comlex. The apartment has wonderful view over the ocean and a large balcony - but it is directly over the pool patio. So, expect noise from people drinking and lazing at all times!
The apartment itself is rather worn, there was an army of ants in the cupboard by the frig, so don't leave any food on the counters, as they will find it. The owner only supplied one kitchen garbage bag for a 5 day stay - I have never been expected to buy garbage bags before and in fact used the ones in the bathrooms! There was no helpful information about where to get groceries, how to get into Funchal etc. We do not happen to use Apps or GPS.
Thank you for staying in my apartment.
Actually it's mentioned in the add that the apartment is located in 4* tourism complex Pestana Gardens. Taking into account that the apartment is located on the 4th floor and you can hear the sound of ocean waves I'm surprised that you heard any noises from the patio below.
I'm sorry for the inconveniences with the ants but we do regularly the desinfection which prevents their appearance for a while.
As regards the garbage bags - there are usually a lot of plastic shopping bags which fit into the bin and to avoid from using additional plastic we and the guests are using the shopping bags for the bin.
As regards the information - I sent you the information about the shuttle bus to/from the airport, public buses to the center, we provide free WIFI in the apartment and there are a lot of booklets about the different sightseeing places in Funchal and outside.
Also you had the phone no. of the local manager in case of any questions.
I'm sorry if this information wasn't enough for you.
A lovely break
The apartment is well equipped and along with the pool area and communal area is kept to a high standard.
I didn't actually use the pool or bar area but it seemed well received by other guests.
There is a wide variety of maps/information in the apartment, handy for inspiration if needed.
The tunnel at the end of the beach was helpful to take you to a selection of local restaurants however the walk in to Funchal itself is completely manageable with comfy shoes and offers pleasant views with many bars and restaurants along the way.
The local supermarket that we used was more than what we needed, only a couple of minutes drive away.
We hired a car from the airport which was a real bonus and very reasonably priced as we were able to explore the rest of Madeira at our own leisure, some of the scenery is breath taking. I would advise to do the same if you can.
Thank you for your review.
I'm glad that you had lovely holidays in Madeira.
We stayed at this apartment for a week but could have stayed longer! The apartment is comfortable & spacious. It also has a lovely balcony which overlooks the swimming pool & the Atlantic.
There is a comfortable 3 piece suite as well as a table with 4 chairs inside but to be perfectly honest we spent majority of our time on the balcony as there is a table with 4 chairs & 2 loungers, perfect for meal times & just relaxing watching the waves crashing on the beach.
There is washing machine in the kitchen with an airer on the balcony so washing is no problem. It was so nice coming back from our holiday knowing that we didn't have too much washing to do!
WiFi also in the apartment too which is really handy & the staff at reception are really friendly and helpful.
Defiantly worth a visit!
Thank you for your review. You're welcome if you decide to visit Madeira again!
The property was peaceful, cozy and clean. The scenery was lovely, as well as the service. Expectations were met and we are happy to come again. Probably for two months next spring.
Bel appartement avec vue magnifique
Nous avons bien apprécié cet appartement spacieux et surtout sa terrasse en front de mer pour admirer le coucher du soleil.
Seuls reproches, les lits trop durs et la douche hors service, donc une seule salle de bain en bon fonctionnement.
Sinon, tout était parfait.
Merci pour les petits plus (thé, café, sucre, lait,...)
