Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Rosa,

After “ testing” your apartment last April we decide as retired to stay in Funchal for the whole winter. We rented your apartment from beginning of November 2013 to the end of March 2014.

It has been a pleasure to stay here and feet the Maderian atmosphere.

We love to stay here and the apartment have been perfect for us.

As we like walking we have walked to Funchal center almost every day (never took a taxi or bus) Most of the dinners we have bought it in from the buffet from the supermarket on the group floor. We will also recommend the Indian restaurant around the corner “Sabor da India” Very good, friendly service and wonderful food. Your hospitality has been a pleasure to meet you (and your lovely children) As you know we love Madeira and the people here and we will be back, even if we not will be staying so long next time (We are longing so much for our grand children.

At the end we will wish you and your family all the best for the future.

Best regards
Oct 2013

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Owner very welcoming and helpful and apartment has everything you need and clean.

Good supermarket below apartment block.

Excellent WiFi!

As with any property on a busy road, expect traffic noise and currently a lot of construction work going on with the inevitable noise.

We were lucky enough to have good weather and the lido pool opened in our second week but there are a few access areas for sea swimming.

The reviews are true!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this appartment because we are not the kind of people who like to stay in big hotels or big holiday appartment buildings.When we saw this appartment on HomeAway and because there were so many good reviews [and.... they are all true!] we decided to make a reservation.We had a fantastic stay in the appartment.Rosa answered quickly on our questions by mail and once, when there was a small problem, by phone.Booking and payments for the appartment went smoothly.There is a very good price/quality ratio!

Rosa came to meet us at our arrivaltime as we had agreed and she showed us the appartment and gave us a little welcoming present,very kind!

The appartment is clean and cosy and had everything what the information says.Rosa will help you if needed with questions during your stay but because we had very good Wifi in the appartment we could easily search on our i-pad for information about the island, and things to do.

Local busses, even the bus for the airport and taxi's are in the neighbourhood, even as the supermarket and several restaurants and a great pasteleria down the street.The supermarkt is fine for some small groceries, for example fresh bread in the morning and take away meals, but at the end of the street where the yellow and red tourist busses stop, down around the corner of Eden Mar appartments there is a a very big Pingo Doce with a wide range of products.The walking distance to the center of Funchal is about half an hour, but busses go frequently.Don't throw away the busticket because you can buy credits for it! Just ask at the information points.We liked: Olives, a very good restaurant across the street, : Vinho e Petiscos across the street down the stairs [you can also go with the elevator at the gelato shop] and Sabor da India next to the pingo doce, So all in the neighbourhood.We didn't like restaurant Chanceller.If you want to rent a car..there are a lot of car rentals in the area.The car can be parked [if there is space] at the private parking next to the building,the parkingspaces are not big but with a small car it is no problem.When we stayed at the appartment they were busy with the street ,some of the streets become one-way.So there was not much traffic.

The only noize we heard in the appartment were sometimes the dog or the cat of one of the neighbours,

Alltogether we had a very nice stay and would certainly recommend this appartment to others!!!!

Very well located and cosy

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is very well located and contains all that you may need. You will be very confortably installed in two bedrooms with a living room and a nice balcony with a nice view.

The hostess will kindly inform you about the important things to know in Funchal and around.

Too bad I was there for work matters, I hope I can come back and visit this magnificent island and its wonderful ladscapes.

This lovely modern apartment is centrally located in the Lido area of Funchal and about a 20 minute stroll to Funchal passing the famous Reids hotel, Casino, Santa Caterina park, Presidents official building, the new “ Dolce Vita “ shopping mall and years old lovely Baltazar Dias Theatre eventually arriving at the 500 years old Cathedral. Continue to walk and you will reach the “ Old Town “ and recommended restaurant now in the Old Fort .

Also 5 minutes walk from the apartment is the new “ forum “ shopping mall heading towards Camara De Lobos where Winston Churchill stayed and painted. Before you get to Camara De Lobos there is the new promenade of Praia Formosa which has a black sandy beach and restaurants.

There are 2 man made yellow sandy beaches in Machico and Calheta large which are less than 30 minutes drive going in each direction. The airport is 20 minutes away by taxi but with a local bus service going into Funchal. The famous Monte church can be reached by either cable car or local transport and near Monte is where the Botanical gardens are to be found. If you want to play golf then Palheiro golf club is just above Funchal and Santa da Serra is located just above the airport. This is where the Madeiran Open is played each year or you can go by boat to the island of Porto Santo with its pristine white sandy beaches.
