Beautiful flat in superb position
The apartment was just as presented on the website.
There were a few small issues. There was no DVD player which was an issue as we specifically identified this as a reason for selecting this particular flat, and took DVDs for the evenings. This problem was accentuated by the super large TV only having Portuguese channels. (The bedroom wall tv did have some English channels.)
The bed pillows were very poor especially when compared with the high overall standard of the accommodation.
The management arrangements including the transport to and from the airport were excellent and were there to greet us as agreed and returned to sort out a minor light bulb issue.
Thanks for your largely positive review. With regard to your small issues we have responded below:
You should have let us know that there was no DVD player - we had planned to install one, which was still in its box - we did call out to change a light bulb as you requested and could have done this at the same time had we been notified. This has been rectified now.
The cable TV has 140+ channels - it looks like you had set the TV to the wrong input (terrestrial TV is just the five Portuguese channels). Again this could have been resolved had we known. The normal cable input includes lots of English channels (Sky News, BBC News, BBC Entertainment etc).
With regard to the pillows, they are "standard issue" on the island, but we will look at supplying better ones immediately.
A magnificent apartment with great views of the sea
The property was exactly as described. It was exceptionally clean and equipped to a high standard. The management staff were well organised and met us on arrival. The only problem we had was a lack of instructions for the dishwasher. However we ate out most of the time so this was not really a problem.
Nice and well located apartment
I found it exactly as noted by others. Great location. We made good use of the very nice kitchen and enjoyed the ocean sounds and view. Management was helpful and professional. Some people may find the beds a bit hard and there was a small problem about sewer gas in the back bathroom but overall we had a nice experience. I highly recommend their driver, Manuel, for airport pickup and day island tours: far better choice than renting a car.
Delighted you enjoyed your stay. We are afraid all beds here are hard, and there are actually some "mattress toppers" at the apartment which could have been fitted. The smell in the second bathroom has been eradicated. The location is excellent, as you observe. Manuel is always very good!
The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos! The views are stunning, the furniture and fittings are fresh and clean, the decor is modern and very attractive. We had a wonderful 10 day holiday, the first visit for both of us to Madeira. The location of the apartment is great, with a short walk to a huge range of restaurants, shops, cafes, the Lido and bus routes. We got a taxi on arrival, but picked up the Aerobus on return at the end of our holiday. €5 each, and excellent service. As far as the apartment itself goes, some minor things would make it much better. The mattresses are very firm, and the pillows poor. More mugs, some small pots and a proper toaster would all be a great help. None of this spoiled our stay.
This is a beautiful apartment which is exactly like the photos. Good location close to lots of restaurants and shops. Would definitely return.
Excellent apartment with great views.
Apartment was close to some really nice restaurants and bars. We had a great holiday and enjoyed sitting on the balcony on an evening watching the ocean.
Delighted you enjoyed your stay - the ocean views can be addictive!
We meet all of our guests personally and will happily answer ans questions and make recommendations for restaurants , tours etc if requested. There is also information on the island in the apartment.
