Wonderful Apartment & Great Jeep Tour
Spacious, spotlessly clean, unrivalled views, wonderful roof terrace, well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds & nice big bathrooms. We spent a great week in Niara's apartment. She is a great host, responds quickly, has lots of good restaurant suggestions and is very helpful. We had a really relaxing holiday in this apartment. The pool is very clean. Highlight of our trip was jeep tour with Miguel. We booked this directly with Niara. Miguel was a great guide and our teenage daughters really enjoyed his tour. We got some fantastic photos and we would really recommend this to you. We hope to return again in November.
If you enjoy seafood - try 'By the sea' just out of the car park gates on the right.
Forum shopping centre nearby has a very good supermarket.
Easy to take a bus in to the centre of Funchal.
Thank you very much for such kind words! It was my pleasure have helped you having the best holidays as possible! I'm glad you have enjoyed it so much! I will be here waiting for your next visit in November!
Wonderful apartment with great views!
We have just come home from a great holiday in Portugal which started in beautiful Madeira in this wonderful apartment with great views. The apartment is very spacious and offers more than enough space for a family of four. It is exactly like the description and photos on the site.
Niara is an excellent host; she organised a taxi from and to the airport for us, shared a lot of information about Madeira and recommended a couple of very nice restaurants. One of the highlights for us was the jeep tour with Miguel; a really great tour on which he took us to a lot of beautiful places where you would normally not come and told us a lot about Madeira. He also got us on board a sailing trip to Faja dos Padres during which we saw dolphins and turtles in the morning, had a great lunch and swim and sailed back in the late afternoon. We all really enjoyed our week in Madeira in this beautiful apartment mainly due to Niara's and Miguel's excellent care and look forward to going back some day!
Great location and property
Lovely location and apartment. Everything we needed in the apartment. Naira was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for her. Definitely will be returning soon!
Thank you very much! It was a pleasure! I hope to see you again soon!
Home from home
We arrived at the airport to be met by a taxi, arranged by the apartment manager Niara, and were whisked off to the apartment where Niara met us and showed us around. The apartment is spacious and light with everything you could possibly need from a bottle opener to a dishwasher to a washing machine to a wonderful rooftop terrace. Niara was so informative, giving us details about the restaurants, shopping and transport. She even provided us with a selection of food items (coffee, milk etc) as we arrived late and it was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble for her. We also booked a jeep tour with her husband, Miguel, which was excellent - not to be missed!!!! Great fun travelling in an old jeep (sometimes off-road) and giving us the chance to see parts of Madeira that the organised bus tours never show you. We stopped at a couple of villages where we sampled the traditional Poncha - a mix of lemon, honey and rum - very good but deceptively strong.
The only down side of the location is that the beach path from the apartment to the tunnel, which connects you to the main shopping centre, had been washed away by storms in the winter and the temporary path is difficult to negotiate over cobbles. There is a staircase opposite the apartment building which takes you to the upper level though - quite a climb if you're getting on in years but Taxis are readily available though and cost anything between €5/10 depending on distance within Funchal. This is an ideal location if you want to be away from the noise and bustle of the hotels and bars and where the sound of the waves lull you to sleep every night - who could ask for more?
Brilliant week in Madiera
We came to Madeira with 22 adults and children and all hired different apartments in the block. We hired this lovely and very spacious apartment with fabulous views and easy access to a wealth of different activities. We only stayed for 6 days and in that time we managed to fit in:
local levada walks - stunning especially if you are green fingered and love nature,
go carting for the boys,
deep sea fishing for the boys,
cable car and basket rides, markets and shopping for the girls,
an excellent jeep tour by Miguel, including the glass floor look out from the rocks,
lovely meals out at lunchtime and in the evening - there is a hugh choice of restaurants,
swimming in the sea and lovely pool,
Poncha - you must visit to try this!
My only words of caution are Madeira is very steep and you can discover a lot on foot so bring comfortable shoes and enjoy the spectacular island. The local shops are close by but up a very steep staircase.
Niara was very very helpful and quick to respond to all our needs.
A great week in Madeira.
I really can't choose one thing I liked more than another!
We arrived in the dark so awoke the next morning to spectacular views of ocean and cliffs. There isn't one thing I can say I appreciated more than another; we loved the whole experience!
-Beach location, with seawall walks for kilometers in both directions
-Sound of the gentle waves and not-so-gentle waves at the foot of our building
-Privacy of the large balcony
-Lovely views, really spectacular views
-Spaciousness of the apartment, including both bedrooms and both bathrooms
-Cleanliness and comfort
-Full kitchen and all equipment
-Pool area, clean and comfortable
-Helpfulness and availability of Niara who is in touch as much as we needed her to be.
-Breakfast supplies, including coffee, for our first morning. That was so much appreciated!
-Jeep tour with Niara's husband (I recommend this without hesitation! Absolutely thrilling! Who needs theme parks?)
-Lots of parking available for our rental car
-Numerous restaurants to choose from, within walking distance
-Security of the building, with someone at the lobby desk at all times
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment (or any other in this building that Niara rents out) for a great base to explore the beautiful island of Madeira from.
Thank you very much for such kind words! I'm happy you have enjoyed your stay so much!
Direct access to the beach from the swimming pool area. Walking path along the beach.
If you would like to explore Madeira island and if you are looking for a informal, cultural, relaxed and real way to explore this island paradise... for me the best choice is doing it with my husband Miguel, in his UMM open classic jeep (convertible)... 27 years old… so no air conditioned, automatic windows or doors (nothing automatic!)… and its noisy but loads of fun, trough the old paths!
