Guestbook comments from the manager

Apartment cosy and all you need provided for home cooking, treated ourselves by eating out most nights, loads of good restaurants nearby, liked being central to new and old town, walked mostly, took the open air bus now and again to the Square. Thanks, no stress, nice touch meeting us yourself at the airport, Ian and Bev.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay w/c 19 and w/c 26 September 2011. The apartment is very well furnished, spacious and comfortable. It is within easy walking distance of the centre of Funchal where there are a wide choice of shops if you prefer a self catering holiday. Alternatively there are many restaurants and a visit to the old town 'art area' is a must. All modern facilities are available at the flat and the washing machine is handy if you want to do any washes before going home. We were picked up at the airport by the owner's father, Aurelio, who was very friendly and accomodatin excellent place to stay due to the location for buses,shops,super. Ken& Yvone

Appartement Moderne Très Correct

  • 5 of 5

Durant 3 semaines, avec une bonne voiture, et grâce à un réseau routier de très bonne qualité nous avons pu sillonner et visiter l'ensemble de l'île pour la deuxième fois qui est très belle à une autre saison,

Appartement correspondant tout a fait à la description, parfaitement meublé et entretenu, dans une résidence très calme et sécurisée avec Parking Voiture fermé en sous sol bien apprécié.

Appartement propre, rue très passagère aux heures de pointe.

Le logement est suffisamment spacieux pour deux personnes ,on y trouve tout ce qui est nécessaire pour un séjour même une machine à laver qui n'est pas informée sur la description. Bien pratique.

Appartement très agréable se situe effectivement a proximité du centre ville à pieds à moins de 10/15 minutes, idéalement situé pour découvrir Funchal à pieds et les environs, des magasins et lieux de restauration.

On reviendra l'année prochaine

Wi-Fi et la télévision sont disponibles et fonctionnent très bien.

Great base for exploring Madeira

  • 4 of 5

We had 4 weeks in Joe s apartment. Met there by Joe and his parents and shown the ropes. Lovely friendly people.

Well located for all Funchal has to offer, cafes, buses, shops, prom and marina.

All about 12 to 15 minutes walk downhill. Longer on the way back uphill. Or catch the no 27 city bus back, running about every 50 mins in the week. Till 2pm Saturdays but none on Sundays.

Lovely homely comfy apartment and more spacious than the photos show.

Great to have a proper separate full kitchen, well equipped , as we dined in almost every night. The washing machine was a must as we travel hand luggage only.

Another great bonus was the broadband internet. We could keep in touch with home, look up bus times and book tours. It was fast and never let us down.

Lovely to have 2 balconies, the main one for catching the evening rays; the bedroom one for hanging out the washing (even dried it when it rained).

The only down side was being on a busy road, as it was rather noisy especially at teatime. Being in the city I suppose it should be expected. It was quiet during the might luckily so not a problem for sleeping. If you are expecting peace and quiet this may not be the apartment for you. Would have been 5 stars except for the traffic noise.

On saying that I would thoroughly recommend the apartment and would first check availability here if we come to Madeira again.

Such an amazing landscape. If you do nothing else, go on some local bus journeys and experience the views and winding, narrow and rollercoaster roads! The bus drivers are very good!
