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 São Martinho

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.

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

Enjoyed our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this apt for the week end of June. Location is fabulous and if you love walking and promenade, there are three excellent lido pools well on your doorstep, we used the newly built Lido pools. As for the apartment itself, we were extremely pleased. Very bright and airy. Well maintained and up to date. Fully stocked with pots, pans, cutlery and dishes. One minor issue we had with the washing machine was dealt with efficiently by the property manager. I would Highly recommend this apartment.

Fantastic apartment.


Everything you needed for a home from home.

No problems but any questions we had the owner was quick and positive with his reply and answers, never a hassle or trouble.

Actually another booking has been made on our return and family members have also planned there vacation there too.

Well done Joe, cheers for great vacation.

Not cleaned for our arrival!!

  • 2 of 5

The property is dated and tired and sits above an Indian Restaurant so I hope you like the smell of curry. When we arrived the only things that were clean were the bedding and the towels, nothing else had been touched - dirty bathrooms, old food in the fridge, dust and dirt everywhere and an infestation of ants. We did not expect to be mopping floors on the first day of our holiday! The shower cubicle in the 2nd bathroom is so small you can't turn around in it. We won't be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I do regret that the apartment was not to your expectations, unfortunately you contact me a few days later informing me of the apartment toilet was not clean on arrival. When the apartment was handanded over to you it was clean and you commented how clean it was. You expected that a maid came daily for you but cleaning is only done once a week as it states on the website and any extra cleaning is payable which you were not happy with and I explained this was not a hotel service. The Maids left items of food for you from previous guests and in the cupboard and many guests do appreciate this, but in future we will remove all items from previous guests apologies for this. The shower cubicle is for a normal size person but we will look at making larger. The apartment is not above a curry house even though there is an Indian restaunt in the apartment block is set back from all this and it is private. Further more I have been renting for many years and from previous positive reviews and I do get many guests returning year after year to this lovely apartment. We do not take any breakage deposit so we rely on our guests if they brake anything to replace or to report it, unfortunately Fiona you broke 2 sunloungers and decided to take items from the apartment when you left which we had to replace it quickly as it would spoiled other guests enjoyment.
