About the property

2 Sunshine Bedroom Apartment Overlooking Marina

2 bedroom apartment with a large balcony with superb view over the marina and the sea.

Perfect location in the centre of Funchal right next to the Theatre, the Park and the Ritz and Theatre Cafes. Within 5 minutes from the Cathedral or Marina where most buses stop and the La Vie Shopping Centre that opens every day (with a 9h/24h pharmacy and a large supermarket in the bottom floor). No car is necessary but if you rent one there is a private paid park in the building.

The market is 15 minute walk.

About Elsa

I am a teacher, mother of two, and I live in Funchal, 10 minutes from this apartment.

I hope you will feel at home in my light and comfortable apartment and that will you enjoy the beautiful Madeira.

Elsa purchased this apartment in 1982

Why Elsa chose Funchal

The apartment is spacious and comfortable ideally situated overlooking the harbour. The balcony is sunny with amazing views out to the sea, fabulous for watching all the cruise ships coming and going. It´s so close to so many attractions and just a short walk (10 mins) to the Old Town where all the restaurants are found.

Lovely Sea-view apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent holiday apartment, with a great balcony overlooking the Marina and Sea-port. Elsa has very good taste, so the interior design is very pleasing. Everything is provided for your stay, and the central location makes this a great base for exploring, bus trips etc. This is the second time we have booked this, and will certainly book again if it is free. Elsa is very easy to do business with, very professional-we had a great time!

Review from Barbro and Per-Ake Eklof

  • 5 of 5

We have lived in the apartment four weeks per year for four years. It is a wounderfull apartment with the best location in Funchal. It is very equipped, you can find all you need. Elsa Always ask the guests if they need something more. The apartment is Always tidy and yhe ckeaning lady is very nice. The apartment is located on 7th floor eith a weiew from the balcony and all the windows facing the sea and Cruise ships only 500 meters from the balcony. The property has a very frendly doorkeeper and the door is looked during evenings, nights and weekends. The apartment is located right in center near shops, restaurants and cafes.

Central, clean with great views of the marina.

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment for at least three times!

We find the apartment clean, with facilities that make it a home from home.

Its position is ideal for Funchal, with its many shops and restaurants only a brief walk away.

Elsa the landlady is very helpful and provides a personal service to make anyone welcome.

The view from the apartment's balcony provides entertainment and interest at all times. Well worth a stay.

Excellent Accomadation

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at apartment. Very spacious, central with amazing views. Apartment was just as described and being able to sit out on the verandah having breakfast was an added bonus! The view of the different cruise ships arriving daily was amazing. The apartment block very quiet and secure with concierge. Broadband easy to access and very fast. Lots of lovely restaurants very close by and serving excellent fayre. Pingo supermarket only 5 minutes from apartment at La Vie shopping centre and fantastic bakery across road from accomadation. Bus travel cheap and easy to use with top up Giro card, available to purchase at nearby tobacconist. Elsa has lots of information on eating out and activities to enjoy and was very helpful and informative. The Madeirian people are so friendly and cant do enough to make your stay on their island memorable. We would definately recommend this accomadation and do hope to return again. Thank you Elsa!
