This self catering ocean facing, waterfront apartment, set on the cliff top, in landscaped gardens with a swimming pool is in a excellent location for your holiday rental, relaxing, peaceful, romantic. From the balcony watch the sunrise over the Desertes Islands, and later in the day you can just relax and take in the stunning views, listen to sounds of the waves, watch the sunset in the evening, and the moon glistening on the water at night. Although, the apartment is only a few minutes walk to restaurants, shops, supermarket, banks, taxi's ranks, bus stop and promenade walk, with its cliff top position, it is well away from the road, in a wonderful location.The centre of Funchal, is a pleasant 10-15 min walk. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable, and furnished to a very high standard, fully equipped for your every need, to enable you to have a relaxing holiday. We are there to add that personal touch, and greet you on your arrival, and answer any questions you may have.
On your arrival: On your arrival we can arrange transport for you to and from the airport, we have taxi driver's we have used for many years, and are friendly and very reliable, and speak very good English.

There will a welcome pack for you on arrival also. If you should need any extra help or advice during your stay we would be pleased to help. The apartment is very central, with good transport available close by, so hiring a car is not really necessary unless you wish to, and if so there is car parking available at the apartment. There is also a hire car office in the courtyard of the apartment , so if you do wish to hire a car for the odd day, it is very convenient for pick-up and return of the car.

Better than a review we have recommended you to 2 sets of friends who are very interested in coming to Madeira following our praise of all Maderian especially the flowers, the colour and the levadas.
When we come back we will certainly book with you again.
This is an absolutely lovely apartment but the best part is the amazing view- we just didn't want to leave! Spent hours just relaxing and gazing out of the enormous patio window - perfect. The apartment itself has everything you could possibly need for comfort and convenience - totally equipped. It is in an excellent location with good restaurants and supermarket within a few minutes walk. Takes about 20 minutes or so to walk into Funchal itself which is a beautiful Capitol. The welcome and hospitality of Rose-Marie and Adrian was lovely. They arranged taxi travel, greeted us at the apartment and provided a very good welcome pack including wine so we could start our holiday off properly! We would highly recommend this apartment for either a short or long stay - it is so comfortable and homely. Location wise we think it is the best place to be as it's near enough to Funchal but far enough out not to be too busy, though at the same time in an area with enough activity with shops, restaurants etc for atmosphere. We will definitely go back again - just the job for relaxation.
Marie Rose was waiting for us to bring the key. She is a very friendly and helpful person.
The flat, which is situated in the tourist-area, is nice and clean. From the balcony there is a fantastic view to the garden and the sea.
I would like to come back another time.
This apartment is in a fantastic location right by the ocean with stunning sea views.
It is superbly furnished with all modern facilities as described on the website.
The bed linen is lovely and changed weekly.
The owners, Rosemarie and Adrian are so helpful and arrange airport pickup if required by taxi.
Its location is handy for the local buses (cheap to use) and there is an abundance of restaurants in the vicinity to suit all tastes.
We have been going to this apartment since 2007 and highly recommend for adults who like a home from home place to stay to relax and enjoy Madeira.
Spent a very relaxing week here with my 82 year old mother and we had a wonderful time. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped and the view from the balcony was stunning. There is nothing better than having breakfast in the sun overlooking the shimmering Atlantic Ocean whilst Britain is shivering under a layer of snow! Ideally situated close to bus stops it is also near enough to the centre of Funchal to walk in and there are plenty of restaurants within a short walk, including Moby Dick's just opposite which serves excellent food. The welcome pack was much appreciated, particularly the fresh rolls and the wine, and Rosemarie was there when we arrived to give us local information and advice. Although we didn't use the pool it looked well maintained and the gardens were immaculate.
I highly recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to return.
We have stayed four times in Madeira now and this is by far the best apartment. It is even better than stated in the owners description. It was clean tidy and with a touch of luxury. Without a doubt one of the things that was special about the department was the view from the main balcony, we would have no trouble living with it. Just to get up in the morning to see the sunrise and spot the cruise ships sailing in was a delight and to relax in the afternoon after a morning in Funchal, glass of wine, book to read and knowing how awful the weather is at home.
The taxi from the airport was arranged by the owners and made for a stress free start. Rosemarie was there to greet us and the welcome pack meant there was no need to rush out to a supermarket.
The Yellow file is full of useful information and the comment books are an excellent guide to local restaurants. Recommend Moby Dick which is across the court yard from the entrance to the apartments. There is a bus stop on the main road which is about 100m from the flat, it is up hill but that does make coming back easier. Funchal is about 15/20 minutes walk but does tend to take longer as you will keep wanting to stop to look at things.
We will be staying here again and have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
Marie and Adrian took care of absolutely everything, giving us a worry free, hassle free holiday. They arranged transport to and from the airport for us with their driver at a reasonable rate and very kindly accommodated a different change over date. The apartment is absolutely lovely and a real "home from home" with everything you could need including a Welcome Pack which was very well received (thank you!). It is spotlessly clean, and that view is absolutely worth every penny. Shops and restaurants all within very close walking distance. I would without doubt, recommend to anyone and look forward very much to returning one day soon. The description of the apartment is as described and if anything far exceeded our expectations - which were already high prior to arrival! The restaurant Moby Dick near the entrance provides great home cooked food and for a more refined dinner try L'Osteria.
Situated on the Estrada Monumental, where many 5 star hotels and restaurants, bars, shops, supermarket, banks, taxi ranks, bus stop, all within a few minutes walk. The centre of Funchal is a pleasant walk, 10-15min, or a few minutes by bus or taxi. There is access (via the adjacent restaurant) sea access.

New large shopping mall within a 10min walk, and a cinema, (English films). There are several places close by for fishing as well. Internet cafes. Lovely restaurants of all kinds. Beautiful leveda walks, cable car with spectacular views taking you to exotic gardens.
