A lovely large apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this large and well-kept apartment. We enjoyed the pool and the beach as well as many local restaurants. The owners were welcoming and recommended lots of activities and restaurants. We stayed with a large group of friends and were all accommodated within the same block in apartments from the same owner, and we all had an excellent time. I would highly recommend

Lovely apartment by the sea.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in this area and we just love the location, in easy reach of Funchal but peaceful and away from it all . The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything needed for a self catering holiday. The star has to be the wonderful balcony, double sized and facing right on to the sea with beautiful views of the Cabo Girao. Go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the waves. Niara was a fantastic host and gave us a very warm welcome . She was always on hand if needed and very helpful with lots of knowledge about Funchal and Madeira. I definitely hope to back.

We simply loved it there!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3,5 weeks in Madeira and Niara’s apartment from couple days before Christmas to mid January. The weather was warm and sunny. There was some raining only during three days.

The apartment is lovely! Large living room-dining room-kitchen combination. Big master bedroom with master bathroom and nearby second bathroom. It was handy that both of us had an own bathroom and there was enough hot water with high pressure. Second bedroom was nice place to keep our out-door staff. The kitchen was spacious and there were good basic equipment. We were happy to have a washing machine, an iron and a hair dryer. As Finns we appreciated also the warmth of the apartment even local winter time.

The very best thing in the apartment was the sea view. From living room and master bed room there are large windows to balcony and to the sea. It’s only 20 meters to the sea and you can hear the waves and it’s wonderful. There are also palm trees, garden with blooming flowers, mountain view, pool and beach exit. Picture perfect holiday view 

The balcony was our favorite place to be. There are a dining set, a hanging chair and two sun beds; very comfortable combination. There are also plants in the balcony, which made us feel cozy.

During Christmas time Funchal is full of Christmas lights, Christmas flowers and nativity scenes. It’s absolutely beautiful. And the New Years fireworks are amazing.

Internet connection was surprisingly fast and it was possible to work from the balcony. We had a car rented full time and from the apartment it is easy to drive to all directions. Parking place is next to the building.

Our landlady Niara was lovely, friendly, helpful and quick in all things. It was easy and pleasant to deal with her.

We warmly recommend this apartment and we’d love to come again!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a great holiday. Niara couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful during the booking process and our stay. Apartment in great location with amazing views and sunsets. With lots of excellent restaurants within walking distance.

We had the most brilliant day tour with Niara's husband Miguel in his amazing old jeep such a fun way to see the beautiful island of Maderia so pleased we booked before arriving.

Hope to return again very soon.

Excellent view and everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We've really enjoyed our stay. Having come on holiday for some R & R, that's exactly what we've got! The apartment is lovely and spacious and we've spent many hours lazing around, on the many chairs, sofas and beds. We were treated to some unseasonably impressive waves yesterday (passing hurricane Ophelia) crashing on the cliffs.

Niara, who looks after the guests, was very welcoming and more than helpful with suggestions for food, shopping and buses.

We went on a fabulous Half day jeep tour with Miguel and had wished we had booked for the first day of our holiday, as he gave us a much better sense of Madeira and its possibilities. If you are going, please do book in advance with Niara.

The walk to Camara Du Lobos is lovely and dinner at the blue and white restaurant ,5 mins along the prom in the other direction, was delicious.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review! I'm happy you have enjoyed your stay so much! In fact the terrace and its furniture can be used all year round as it is a very pleasant area, very protected (even to see the waves crushing on the shore!) I'm also glad you have enjoyed the tips I gave you, specially the jeep tour with my husband Miguel. I hope to see you again soon! All the best for you!

Clean and tidy- all as described in the booking details - highly recommended !!

Niara is so helpful and willing to ensure the holiday is everything you want it to be , she tells you everything you need to know - sometimes giving too much info !! It’s great, don’t get me wrong ! Miguel’s Jeep tours - don’t miss them - we left booking them too late and only could do a half day so gutted at what we could have seen / done in the 2 full days -1 east , 1 west we intended doing. Next time we will know better. Fully recommended and very good value for the money!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Alison! I'm happy you have enjoyed your holiday so much! I know sometimes I talk to much but I always want to give as much information as I can in order you can enjoy Madeira island as much as possible, having the best holidays ever! I'm glad you have enjoyed the jeep tour with my husband Miguel too! Next time you need to book in advance to guaratee a place for a full day tour because he his always fully booked as this tours are really good! (out of touristic tracks - he really like what he does!) I'm really looking much forward to meet you again soon!

If you would like to explore Madeira island and if you are looking for a informal, cultural, relaxed and real way to explore this island paradise... for me the best choice is doing it with my husband Miguel, in his UMM open classic jeep (convertible)... 27 years old… so no air conditioned, automatic windows or doors (nothing automatic!)… and its noisy but loads of fun, trough the old paths!
