Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks at the Garden Apartment during the annual Flower Festival and the location of this apartment was perfect as it is in the town and within easy walking distance of many attractions. We have now stayed in four of Elsa's apartments and they have all been well maintained, clean, nicely furnished and have the little extras such as foil, cling film, soap, wash powder etc. Elsa is a lovely lady and is always quick to respond to bookings/queries. I would recommend any of Elsa's properties to friends and family. We have already booked again for next year!

Great flat and Fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

The flat is very well located, right by the main square of Funchal. It has all facilities you would expect. It was very clean and well decorated.

Some reviewers have said the back street could be noisy. We did not experience any problem of that kind (maybe streets are quieter than normal in winter...)

This was the second time we booked a flat with Elsa and once again she was incredibly helpful. She was here to help when we asked for a new high chair for our little one. She speaks very well English and I would certainly contact her once again next time we go to Madeira.

Apartment in central Funchal

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, well furnished and well equipped second floor apartment in central Funchal. Ideally situated for nearby beautiful garden, excellent supermarket, buses, marina and cable car. Fantastic architecture in Funchal and a beautiful city to explore. Elsa, the owner, was very helpful and informative. Would highly recommend visiting the botanical gardens and Monte Palace Gardens.

Eine sehr gute Wohnung!

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne Wohnung in top Lage! Sauber, alles vorhanden. Wenn einer meint hier wäre es laut, ja stimmt zum Teil- man darf nicht vergessen, man ist voll in der Stadtmitte und Teil des nachtsleben. Für uns auch mit 2 Kindern war absolut in Ordnung!Elsa ist eine tolle Person, hilfsbereit, hat uns guten Tipps gegeben.! Sehr schön, dass wir sie kennen gelernt haben! Würden wieder kommen
