About Joe

I was born here in Portugal and I was bought up in the UK from the age of 10... I worked in Social Housing before in the UK before moving back to Portugal. I have been in working in the tourism industry for the past 12 years mainly in Portugal.

Joe purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Joe chose Funchal

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.

What makes this apartment unique

All facilities are at your door step.

High quality apartment.

Spacious apartment.

Location, no hills to climb.

Promenade 50 metres away and Lido pools.

No need for car.

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

The property was a decent size and rooms were tastefully decorated kitchen had all the usual washing was a godsend only problem was out at the main security door there was a strong smell of urine which was very unpleasant and when it was wet it really stunk but that's the only negative I would recommend this flat Joe was a great host

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!
