Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Dear Avril, 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. Yours sincerely, Richard T S Harris

Well situated, modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

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.

Good Times in Funchal

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Great Stay !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Funchal, Madeira thanks to a great choice in holiday accommodation. This apartment is brand new, stylish very comfortable, convenient and safely located in a secure building. The property is also very spacious , super clean and provides top quality amenities for self catering however the extremely convenient location puts you just a short stroll from the cafe's,restaurants, bars,markets waterfront and all of the excitement the city of Funchal provides. The location is also super quite during the evenings and the large out door balconies provided cool breezes and excellent views over Funchal and perfect ambiance for a night cap of rich Madeira wine while watching the city sleep. P.S= The cafe 20mtr up the road on the opposite side from the top entrance of this apartment provides late night and early morning snacks, takeaway drinks ,beers and coffees, meals etc . I can highly recommend this apartment for future stays and look forward to our return in the very near future. Congratulations to the owners that made "Living in Funchal" a wonderful experience.

Traumwohnung für einen wunderschönen Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten das große Glück vier Wochen lang Urlaub auf Madeira in dieser wunderbaren Wohnung zu genießen. Die Wohnung war mit allem Komfort ausgestattet und übertraf unsere Erwartungen in jeglicher Hinsicht. Schon beim Betreten der Wohnung stellte sich direkt eine Wohlfühlatmosphäre ein. Hervorzuheben ist die große Terrasse mit einer herrlichen Aussicht auf den Monte bzw. auf den Hafen Funchals. In den Ortskern benötigt man 15 Minuten, zurück ein wenig länger, da es leicht bergauf geht. Die Empfehlungen des Vermieters bzgl. der Restaurants können wir mit bestem Gewissen weitergeben. (Restaurant Mozart und Do Forte in Funchal). Wir kommen auf jeden Fall gerne wieder.
