Description

Cambridge LEFT

Comfortable And Quiet Two Bedroom Apartment In Funchal Centre


About the property

CAMBRIDGE

Two Top Floor Peaceful Apartments in Funchal Centre Both with Two Balconies: Cambridge Left and Cambridge Right. They have recently been restored. They are very quiet although they are in the centre of Funchal. For larger groups both units can be rented together. There is an adjoining door connecting both apartments, living room to living room. So the adjacent apartments are available individually or are ideal for four couples holidaying together whilst enjoying their own place. Each apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies with nice views of the Madeira landscape and the sea. The apartment RIGHT has another small bedroom with a sofa double bed. Two bedrooms have doors opening onto one of the balconies with views over the rooftops, the mountains, the church and a glimpse of the sea. They are situated in Funchal Centre, just behind La Vie Shopping Centre including a 9h/24h pharmacy and a supermarket opened every day of the week. Even though the apartment is close to the centre it is quiet in the evenings and through the night. 10 minutes flat walking distance from the Cathedral, the Park, the Ritz Café, the Theatre Café or the Marina where most buses stop. Car parking is in the street by pay meters or in a non-expensive secure car park in the building next door.

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 comfortable apartment, and that you will enjoy the beautiful Madeira.

Elsa purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Elsa chose Funchal

The apartment is in a fantastic location in Funchal Centre and at the same time in a quiet place. There is every facility we may need and are surrounded by everyday local life but only minutes away from La Vie Shopping Centre with supermarket, bakery and taxi rank and only a 5 minute walk from the Marina, beautiful parks, the Cathedral and restaurants. It is also very sunny and with two balconies with views over the rooftops, the church and the sea.

A great apartment with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very big. You can definitely find everything you can think of in this flat. The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of plates, jars, pots, etc. There is even a baby pram and a car seat in the apartment. A wide variety of tourist information leaflets and other literature in different languages could be found in the living room. The location is also very convenient, close to everything and to a big supermarket as well. There is also a car park right next to the block of flats for a cheap price.

Elsa is a very friendly person and a great driver. She offered us a transfer to/from the airport even though our flights were late at night and early in the morning. She has also explained everything about the city, sightseeing, tue island, restaurants and etc. It was a pleasure to meet her and very easy ro communicate with.

Would definitely recommend this apartment to others.

Amazing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The Elsa's Apartment (Right, 3 rooms), is amazing and beautiful. The apartment is located very near to the The Vie mall and marina. The apartment is full-equipped, very confortable, very clean and very beautiful. Elsa was very nice, and she explained touristic places in Madeira. If I come back with my family to Madeira, I would go back to the Elsa's apartment.

Very cosy and big flat

  • 5 of 5

Elsa ist eine äußerst freundliche und zugleich unkomplizierte Vermieterin. Sie holte uns vom Flughafen ab und machte gleich eine kleine Stadtrundfahrt durch Funchal mit uns. Die Wohnung ist liebevoll und komfortabel eingerichtet und mit allem Notwendigen ausgestattet. Sie bietet genug Platz für vier Erwachsene. Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt und können einen Aufenthlat in Elsas Wohnung sehr empfehlen.

Centrally located luxury apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was nicely furnished and well equipped for our stay over the Christmas period. It was very comfortable and benefitted from the lovely views of the mountains and the sea from the balconies. The photos give a true impression of the accommodation. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of towels provided. The apartment was about 10 minutes walk from the Cathedral and 5 minutes walk to La Vie shopping mall with a Pingo Douce supermarket. This was our second visit to Funchal and we will be returning next year. Elsa was very helpful - we were very late in arriving due to a delayed flight. She also provided transfers and a lot of local information. She speaks English very well. We recommend the Cambridge apartment and will be looking forward to coming again

Very good holiday in Elsa's apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as described and as the photos. We liked the balconies and sat there every day! The kitchen was well equipped and there was enough crockery - in some apartments if you have the dishwasher on you have to wait for it to finish to have a drink! The bedrooms are large and have loads of storage space, The apartment is well situated for restaurants and a large supermarket in the shopping centre nearby. We tried several restaurants but particularly liked Espaco Funchal on Rua Carreira - a couple of minutes walk - and we tried Portugese dishes such as Espada fish and Espetada.
