John and Marie (York) Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The apartment exceeded all our expectations – clean, comfortable and very well equipped. It is situated in a quiet and secure residential area only a five minute walk from the marina and centre of Funchal.

The view from the balcony is even better than depicted on the website.

Claudio’s representative was waiting for us on our arrival and could not have been more helpful and friendly.

There are numerous good quality restaurants nearby as well as smaller cafe bars. The main supermarket, situated in the Dolce Vita shopping centre, is also only a five minute walk towards the centre of Funchal.

There is a small climb uphill from town but it only requires an average degree of fitness. If we needed to carry heavy shopping we got a taxi from the supermarket entrance to the apartment at a cost of 3 Euros. There are, however, for convenience, several smaller supermarkets only a few minutes walk away.

Just around the corner, on the main road, it is possible to catch a local bus to the Lido, Forum shopping centre, Praia Formosa and other areas of interest west of Funchal.

This was the perfect holiday apartment for us and we have already booked a return visit this year for an extended period.

A lovely place to stay in Funchal

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Claudio's apartment. It was well equipped (the only thing we couldn't find was a potato peeler), well situated, just a 5 minute down hill walk into the centre, and spacious. We enjoyed having the pool to ourselves quite often, and the views from the balcony were great (the apartment benefits from being on the penultimate floor which meant there was no balcony above us). Claudio and Juvelina were very helpful, and the keys handover was very easy.

The only reasons we didn't give 5 stars, have been mentioned by others before, but we thought them worth mentioning again, just in case they are easy to remedy. The lack of air conditioning means that you either have to keep the (quite noisy) fan on or the balcony doors open (which let in a lot of noise at night), coupled with the quite hard bed, we found it difficult to drift off for the first few nights.

Other than that, we enjoyed staying in the apartment very much, and the DVDs in English provided a few cosy nights in after we'd spent all day hiking around the island. We highly recommend the Restaurante dos Combatentes, which has been mentioned by others on here, their food was superb as was their house white, and all was well priced. We would also recommend that you walk some of the levadas on the island as they have stunning views (because they are often built into the sides of the hills) and take you to some villages you wouldn't normally visit.

We had a very good stay in Claudio's apartment and would return again.

A perfect self catering apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment with the best self catering facilities we have ever had and we have been to several all over Europe. The apartment was very clean and well maintained, and felt very secure, with a super fast internet connection.

It's in a great location 15 minute walk into Funchal, small supermarkets and places to eat just 2 minutes away with a great bakery selling the best bread and cakes. Also a niece balcony to enjoy the view and eat the cakes.

Good customer services and communications from the owner i would certainly recommend this lovely apartment and hope to book it again in the near future.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The location was ideal, situated very near to the centre and just a short walk to the Lido area. The view from the balcony was stunning and the 360 deg view from the roof terrace has to be one of the best in Funchal. We highly recommend this apartment to anybody visiting Funchal.

Excellent location, great views!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this apartment a number of times over the years, it is a great location, a short walk to the main area in Funchal. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is very well stocked with dishes, pans, etc. everything you need for preparing meals. The view from the deck is great. Claudio and Juvelina are very attentive to any needs you may have. We stayed seventeen nights this trip and plan to return soon.

The washer and dryer come in handy also.

It was pleasure to stay in the apartment that has absolutely everything that we needed, very well equipped, clean and in made our stay very relaxing. The view from the balcony made every breakfast ,lunch or dinner that we had in there more tasteful as is just amazing and much better than on the photo on website and if that is not enough for you there is an amazing roof terrace on top floor that you have breath taking view all over Funchal, marina and the ocean.

Claudio and Juvelina where very helpful and answered every question that we had, it was a smooth transaction from start to finish,

I need to mention that we had swimming pool to ourselves as most people that live in the apartments are local and they where probably at work that time so that was another bonus. There is shops around the corner and very nice bakery with amazing cakes and bred also SPAR supermarket going down the road towards cr7 museum which is like 3 minutes walk. Funchal town center is like 5 min walk, there is many lovely restaurants by the marina where you can get fresh see food and drink Madeiran wine or sangria :)

Everyone we spoke to knows English so there is no problem to communicate at all.

We hope to be back there in the future and will use this apartment again .

Thank You Claudio
