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.

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.

Wonderful appartment with a very nice view

  • 5 of 5

We arrived almost on the midnight of the 4th of July Mario and Ana has arranged the taxi to pick up us from the airport. They were waiting for us at the apartment and show us all round. The apartment was spacious, clean and had a big terrace. In the morning we saw the wonderful view of the mountains and ocean.

I can say that the apartment is on the good location. There are a lot of restaurants around it, market round the corner and you can reach Funchal city center easy on foot in about 15-20 minutes. Moreover if you rent a car it will not take you long to reach any part of the island from the apartment. Also the apartment has well equipped kitchen, so you can buy fresh Madeira fish (“Espada”) in the market, baked it and have a nice dinner in the terrace with the nice view of Funchal city.

We had to leave very early in the morning, so once again Mario and Ana helped us with the taxi that we were on time at the airport. I hope we will come back again to Madeira in few years. Without any doubts I will choose this apartment and I could recommend to everybody. It’s great not even with friends, but would be comfortable with family too.

Nice apartment - Wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice apartment, clean, well maintained, nicely furnished, and with an extremely well equipped kitchen. The views from the large terrace are wonderfully panoramic, covering the sea, the town and the mountains. It might be worth noting that, because of the aspect, the terrace loses the sun in the early afternoon, regaining it in the evening.

The owner, Ana, is a lovely lady, very easy to communicate with, really helpful, yet unobtrusive.

Funchal is a lovely town with an abundance of bars, cafes and restaurants. Our particular favourites are Lareira Portuguesa, (try the chateaubriand!) which is just around the corner, O'Chefe's which is also nearby, and Cantinha dos Amigos which is in the town centre near to the cathedral.

The property is ideally situated within easy walking distance of shops, supermarkets and restaurants and the Lido (at the time of writing the Lido is closed for renovations) The town centre is a pleasant walk of 20 minutes or so, but taxis are reasonable (about 6 euros) and the bus service is very inexpensive and regular, with bus stops right outside the property.

This apartment is an ideal rental for independent travellers. We are already planning to return and I have no hesitation in giving a 5 star recommendation.

Arrived at the property late on the 3rd April, Mario and Ana wer waiting for us to show us around the appartment, gave us any relevant information on how to work certain pieces of equipment and to inform us that the property would be cleaned every wednesday at 11am. Also supplied us with some various items of foods and fruit from the island and some Madeira wine. In the morning we were all amazed at the wonderfull views of the mountains, city, harbour and sea, there was also a wonderfull sunrise. Madeira itself is a wonderfull island with many different activities to be involved, including Lavada walks, Cable car rides, beautiful gardens and flowers everywhere, car rides around the island are spectacular as the scenery is fantastic, also the local, inter urban and outer buses are freaquent and very good for getting about, the value is also very good. Around the appartment there are many eateries of many different countries, the appartment is also equipped to a high standard for cooking and sitting on the balcony and eating while looking out was fab. We also enjoyed the local Poncha and even attempted making our own with Tangarines, we also had a few Gin and Tonics. The weather was also great throughout the 16 days we were there and the temperature was perfect, usually 19-21 every day.

Cant say enough about the appartment and when we return we will use this again and again as has everything you need for a holiday. Also have to say that there are numerous buses into town just along the road and there are also many yellow taxis to be used.
