Great location, spotlessly clean, staff friendly and efficient
Property in ideal location 10 minute walk to Funchal centre . Everything you need is provided and the apartment is spotlessly clean.The swimming pool and area are also well maintained.
Emily is very friendly and efficient our plane was unable to land for two days due to high winds but on landing late at night the taxi was waiting at the airport and Emily was waiting at the property with a warm welcome. Maderia is a beautiful and diverse island with something for everyone. If you are not a confident driver would recommend a taxi tour easily arranged with Manuel Taxis and personally tailored to your interests.We will be returning soon.
We will be very happy to have these clients back again at any time.

Exceptionally clean, great views, perfect location
Really great location, excellent meet and greet, super clean and enough space, lovely swimming pool, would definitely recommend, family of 4, children 12&10
Beautiful modern apartment with stunning views over Funchal from the roof terrace. Well equipped and comfortable. Emily (housekeeper) provided everything we needed and gave us a comprehensive handover, with lots of tips to help our holiday go smoothly. Our favourite place for lunch was the Forte Restaurant in the Old Town. We can thoroughly recommend Manuel for airport pick-up (arranged through the owner) and tours of the island. We had wonderful day tours of the West of the Island, and on our last day, the East, culminating in drop off at the airport. Fantastic end to the holiday!
It is not as easy as I expected to get Homeaway to organise the return of £150 damage deposit.
Please could you let me have your address so that I can post a cheque to you.

Well situated, modern apartment
Family of 4 getting some winter sun. The apartment is an easy walk down to the centre of Funchal. The apartment is well appointed, nicely decorated/furnished, clean and in good condition. Nice en-suite bathroom in the main bedroom. We had a very enjoyable stay. We didn't get much use out of the pool as the water was a bit nippy, understandable as its solar heated and the trip was in February. Still nice to sit around the pool. Didn't use the gym but it looked decent. Both the cleaner and taxi driver supplied were very helpful and courteous. The listing description is accurate and the owners kept up good communications throughout and were very generous with respect to us breaking a lamp taking only the bare minimum from our deposit and making effort on their part to make it as cheap as possible.
Overall I would recommend this apartment. I would consider staying again should we be looking for an apartment in Funchal.
We would be very pleased to have the Chambers family back at this apartment or at our Villa at Amy time in the future

Good Times in Funchal
We are a family of four with two mid-teenagers. The apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped with the highlight being a large south/west facing balcony which has beautiful views of the city - a great place to watch the sun go down. The pool area was good and quiet while we were there. The owner, Emily the housekeeper and Manuel the taxi driver were all very helpful. The location in the older part of the city is good - the walk down to Funchal is pleasant but the walk back uphill is more challenging. However the taxi fare is reasonable - approximately 6 Euros and taxis are very easy to find. A return trip is a must.
A fantastic holiday retreat
We had a brilliant holiday due to the apartment being a real home from home. It is very well furnished and the location is superb with just a short walk to the restaurants in the old town and on the sea front. It was also a good location for travelling to the various walking locations around the island without needing to be in the car for too long.
We would definitely recommend the apartment to others and consider going back in the future. The owners were very helpful and were able to provide lots of useful information to ensure our stay was very restful.
This is a brand new prestigious development with own landscaped swimming/spa pool with sun beds - 10/15 minute walk to the town centre(downhill). Residential area with sweeping views of the town, harbour and of the sea; also views of the mountains including the area of Monte. Own dedicated secure car space in underbuilding garage.
