Elsa purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Elsa chose São Martinho
The apartment is in a fantastic location in Funchal Centre and at the same time in a quiet place. There is every facility we may need and are surrounded by everyday local life but only minutes away from La Vie Shopping Centre with supermarket, bakery and taxi rank and only a 5 minute walk from the Marina, beautiful parks, the Cathedral and restaurants. It is also very sunny and with two balconies with views over the rooftops, the church and the sea.

Great Central appartment
The apartment is furnished to a high standard and has a very well equipped kitchen - including several plastic fridge storage boxes which I have never found in any other place I've rented before. I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a quiet holiday in Funchal.
Thank you Tom for your nice review. I´m very happy to know that you have enjoyed your stay in Funchal in my apartment.
Holiday for 3 adults, June 2017.
We were collected/delivered to the airport promptly and on time. The apartment was as described, comfortable and plenty of room. For us, an ideal location, just behind the noise and bustle of the front. The kitchen was well fitted with appliances and made dining in easy. Just a couple of minor niggles : The TV was u/s, no signal. The main bathroom had a shower curtain which liked to wrestle with anyone who was in the cubicle, (smaller bathroom was superior). Still, we are experienced travellers and you could do a lot worse. I would recommend the Cambridge apartments for any enjoyable stay in lovely Funchal.
Thank you Eric and Sylvia for your nice review.
I´m happy that you had an enjoyable stay in my apartment at Funchal.

The welcome we received was excellent and the apartment matched this. The location was really good for us and there was plenty of room for all of us to have our own space. The apartment is well equipped with everything you could need. We will definitely be back
Thanks for a great stay Linda
Thank you Linda for your nice review!

An Apartment which will help you to relax
We have stayed in Madeira for a month at a time in almost every one of the last 10 years and the owner has provided an apartment on 3 occasions with the last 2 being the subject apartment.
The facilities provided are in accord with the published listings and are consistently well maintained and cleaned to an exemplary standard.
The owner is available, approachable and knowledgeable and most willing to give help and advice on a range of matters.
We would recommend tha apartment to anyone without hesitation.
Restaurants change from time to time and the owner is happy to give opinions on them, The attractions and activities are the unchanging ones - the climate, the gardens, the levada walks, the quiet areas to rest, read and daydream, the local bus rides which open up new vistas. Uninterrupted views over the city of Funchal enjoyed over a coffee and a cake.
Thank you Eric for your nice review !
You are always welcome and I´m looking forward to your next say!
A great apartment with everything you need
The apartment is very big. You can definitely find everything you can think of in this flat. The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of plates, jars, pots, etc. There is even a baby pram and a car seat in the apartment. A wide variety of tourist information leaflets and other literature in different languages could be found in the living room. The location is also very convenient, close to everything and to a big supermarket as well. There is also a car park right next to the block of flats for a cheap price.
Elsa is a very friendly person and a great driver. She offered us a transfer to/from the airport even though our flights were late at night and early in the morning. She has also explained everything about the city, sightseeing, tue island, restaurants and etc. It was a pleasure to meet her and very easy ro communicate with.
Would definitely recommend this apartment to others.
Thank you Vassilina for your nice review.
Looking forward to meeting you again in Madeira!
Amazing and beautiful
The Elsa's Apartment (Right, 3 rooms), is amazing and beautiful. The apartment is located very near to the The Vie mall and marina. The apartment is full-equipped, very confortable, very clean and very beautiful. Elsa was very nice, and she explained touristic places in Madeira. If I come back with my family to Madeira, I would go back to the Elsa's apartment.
Thank you Gabriel for your nice review.
I look forward to have you and your Family as my guests again.
