Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful week in Mario and Ana's apartment. Not only was it wonderfully comfortable, clean and well equipped but it had the most amazing view from the balcony where we had some fantastic breakfasts, lunches and evening meals. Mario and Ana made us feel very welcome and we had just a lovely relaxing week. Check out the public lido, the market in town, the restaurants in the old part of the town. A day trip to the west of the island is a must as is a trip on the cable car up to Monte. Funchal and the lido area are just full of cafes with delicious coffee and views of the sea. Lots of fantastic places to eat and for simplicity try the 'shack' in the marina next to the stall selling day trips. - grilled sardines, chips, salad and a cold beer - what more could you ask for! Enjoy.

Beautiful apartment with excellent views

  • 5 of 5

Excellent service from Mario and Ana from our initial expression of interest to the end of the holiday. Mario replied immediately to my enquiries and Ana was there to meet us when we arrived. Lovely additional touches for our stay such as a bowl of fresh fruit and nibbles. All essentials were provided including toiletries and beach towels. The apartment is exactly like the photos. The huge balcony and views to the sea and mountains are fabulous. Ideally situated, the apartment is a 20 minute walk into the centre of Funchal. There is a bus stop outside the apartment and a taxi to the centre is only about 6 euros. The apartment is very roomy and comfortable and a delight to return to in an evening after a full day out. There is a supermarket next door and lots of really good restaurants within a few minutes walk. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Madeira. We will be back and would love to stay in this apartment again. Thank you.

We arrived at the airport and were met by a local taxi arranged by Mario and Ana (property owners). On arrival at the apartment Ana showed us the apartment and greeted us with a fresh fruit basket, cheese, Madera wine and more.

The apartment itself is modern, clean, spacious and extremely comfortable with everything you would need during your stay. This apartment has a million dollar view. From the huge balcony we could watch the fireworks, the ocean and the mountains.

This neighbourhood is very lively. There is a convenience store just next door, a bus stop just in front the apartment, plenty of bars, tour kiosks, car rental agencies, café's and many excellent restaurants close by. One of my favourite restaurant was Frango da Guiia, just 2 blocks away. They make excellent piri piri chicken and espatadas.

The owners are very nice and helpful. We had a beautiful stay at this apartment and we would return again with no hesitation.

OBRIGADA to Mario and Ana for their kindness.

From: a Canadians couple who fell in love with Madeira Island.

Outstanding apartment with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time in Madeira and our second at this lovely and clean apartment, very well maintained. Ana and Mario provide excellent customer service, with a friendly welcome, and attention to detail. We have already recommended this particular apartment to our family and friends who hope to book next year. This year we enjoyed walking from the Eira do Serrado to the Nun's Valley where we had a lovely lunch, two Levada walks from Monte to Hortensia Tea Rooms and the Palheiro area, enjoyed walks through the Zona Velha and lunch at Barreirinha Bar Café, the most wonderful meal in The Med Restaurant at the Vila Porto Mare and coffee & snacks at The Prince Charles café in Funchal - as well as relaxing on our balcony where we were able to sunbathe, enjoy fireworks, listen to the music from the traditional Fado nights drift up towards us, enjoy meals for two with wonderful views, take endless photographs, listen to the radio, and read. Fantastic!

Great apartment in a great location in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was all that was advertised and more; very clean, spacious and comfortable. Very well equipped and everything worked.The apartment has magnificent views of the mountains, town and the sea from the large terrace; a perfect place for breakfast!

There are plenty of restaurants, shops and supermarkets locally so we wanted for nothing. Central Funchal is about a 20 minute easy walk, especially if you have a stop in the beautiful St Catherina and Municipal parks on the way.

Would recommend anytime.
