Guestbook comments from the manager

So glad we found you on the internet we have thoroughly enjoyed being in this lovely apartment, You are lovely people and we look forward to coming back at Xmas. Carol & Wilfred.

Thanks for a perfect week of rest and relaxation. The apartment is so well equipped quite the best we have ever stayed in perfect location. Liz + Ian

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at Lido View, the apartment was very nicely furnished and everything on hand you could wish for. Kind regards, Dave & Evelyn

Description of it in the Owners Direct website is very good. One thing in particular was the fantastic terrace.We often say that we would like to go back to a holiday destination

again, and very rarely do, but I feel that Madeira is well worth

another visit, and when we do go there again we will certainly try you first for accomodation. Thanks again for a great Holiday. Daphne and Peter

What a Gem

  • 5 of 5

Lido apartment was the perfect location for us. The newly lido pools were fantastic just a short walk away. area is very peaceful which makes it so easy to relax on sunny days. The position of the apartmenr does mean you may not need any transport but it is a great base to explore from the area and the island The local café/bar Bela Ilha just 50m away is very friendly and great value for both food and drink. Delfina the maid is brilliant and cleans to a very high standard and she and Aurelio is very helpful. We are already planning our next visit and cannot wait. Thank you Joe

A Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth visit to Madeira but the first to this apartment. We had a fortnight to enjoy Funchal and the weather. We were met by Joe's dad who showed us around the apartment. First impression was good, plenty room for the two of us. The size of the balcony/outside space was huge. Joe's dad said he would be back in a week to change beds etc. The weather was very good 25 -28 and very humid. The apartment came with two fans and they were most welcome but air conditioning would have been asset. The apartment is close to restaurants, bus stops, taxis ,supermarkets, small shopping centre.

A lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Had a very nice stay at Joes flat which is beautifully furnished plus a nice new large flat screen TV with loads of channels. The flat is right in the centre of the tourist area a very close to amenities, restaurants and the ocean front. A large patio for our sole use was great for sunbathing [10.30 'til 4.00]. Only slight problem with that was the noise from the adjacent busy road was a bit intusive at times [not a problem within the flat]. Joes communications were great and his Dad is a very pleasant chap with pretty good English. Thanks Joe!

Well appointed appartment

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in this great appartment. Just as advertised, everything you need for a relaxing stay in Madeira. Clean, well maintained, excellent Internet and what a sun trap of a balcony. Owner provided driving instructions and details about the surrounding area. Appartment surrounded by a number of restaurants, the spa lottery on the doorstep was great for those things forgotten from the supermarket just up the stairs on the road above. Would certainly stay again if and when the opportunity arises.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was comfortable and cosy. Slept well and enjoyed the facilities in particular having free WiFi was a major plus. Location ideal for the seafront and lidos. Shopping mall within walking distance (including C&A!). Bus stop nearby for either local buses into Funchal or tourist buses. I used the Big Yellow Bus with a ticket valid for 2 days. As its a hop on hop off bus it was ideal. Spar shop right by apartment was open late. Bigger supermarkets again within walking distance. Restaurants right on street by apartment. Plenty more within walking distance. I'd definately stay here again and have recommended it to friends too!

An excellent first visit to Madeira

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that my wife and I had visited Madeira, but it won't be our last. We stayed for 5 weeks and were reluctant to leave.

The description of the apartment and it's location was very accurate and even better than we imagined. A spacious kitchen with all amenities, lounge/diner, two spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms and of course the large terrace.

We wanted to be as close to the coast as possible and have a host of facilities i.e. bars, cafes and restaurants to choose from. We were not disappointed. The apartment is very spacious with a sheltered terrace that runs the along it's whole length - a joy to chill out on after a day of walks or tours. Having internet access in the apartment was very important it meant we could easily keep in touch with our family.

It's situation , just a few metres from the coast, was perfect for us as we enjoyed the stroll along the promenade on many occasions.

The apartment was cleaned and serviced every week and nothing was too much trouble.

We would recommend this property to both friends and family as it is an excellent centre for the activities , restaurants and cafes.

Near the apartment there are at least 6 restaurants and more within a 5 minute stroll with a variety of types of cuisine including Portuguese, Chinese and Italian. We especially liked the Atlantic restaurant which had views of the Ocean . Our other favourite was the Yacht Bar where you could sit and relax and watch the world go by. There were several supermarkets nearby, even a shopping centre 'The Forum' a short walk away.

As it was our first visit to the island we were uncertain whether it would be the place for us but within a few hours we had booked Levada walks and day tours around the island, a must for any visitor.

Funchal was a 35 minute stroll or you could use the hop on hop off buses that were available. Funchal did not disappoint as there was a wealth of gardens, cultural centres and views especially of the hills and the harbour.

Would we return to Madeira? Definitely yes.

Would we book the apartment again? Yes we have.

We look forward to returning to Madeira for another 5 week adventure.

From the Owner

The main reason why i bought the apartment in this area was due to it's location as it is one the sort out locations in Madeira. Where the apartment is situated there are not many apartments and as you know Madeira is hilly this apartment location is mainly on the flat and close to the Promenade and all facilities at your door step. Another reason is the quality of the finish of the apartment which is of the highest quality and it's large Terrace.
