5 based on 7 holidaymaker reviews
First time in Madeira and we loved it. The experience was made all the better based upon the choice we made to stay at this wonderful property. It was extremely comfortable and had absolutely everything that we required. The views from the roof terrace were fab. We spent a lot of time here enjoying the sun and staring out over the ocean. Very relaxing and intend to return.
All we had hoped for
Other reviews say it all. A perfect 2 weeks with added January sunshine every day and often breakfast as well as lunch on the roof. Newly refurbished Lido is 2 mins away, lifeguarded and 2 euros to swim in the Atlantic. One of us did. Taco bar/restaurant round corner delightful and welcoming. Easy big shop at supermarket and short taxi back. Buses, market and great choice of restaurants nearby. We have been looking for this house for many years. Have already re-booked.
Home from home in Funchal
We spent a month at this delightful house in the old town of Funchal. It really did feel like a 'home from home'. Lovely big kitchen/diner which is very well equipped, comfortable lounge and bedroom. Wifi was really useful for keeping in touch with family and for researching the island. The roof terrace is our favourite part of the property. Having breakfast outside whilst watching the cruise ships arriving and sipping our Gin and Tonics in the early evening after a long day sightseeing and Levada walking. Perfect. So perfect in fact that we are returning for a month next year. Karen is always available via email to answer any queries that should arise.
A superb house with superb views from roof terrace. From collection at airport to departure we had a great holiday. Short downhill walk to bars and cafes, about 15mins walk to large supermarket and Funchal centre. The house is comfortably furnished, exceptionally clean and was ideal for our group of 4 adults.
Thanks Karen for our lovely holiday, hope to book again if your property is available.
Great time in Madiera
This is a lovely property especially the location and the views from the roof terrace. You can walk into Funchal in 10 to 15 minutes and to restaurants and bars in less than 5 minutes, the only down side is Funchal is very hilly and after a nice evening or day out the hill to the house gets a bit steep but not really a problem as its only a couple of hundred yards. We can say that a future visit is definitely on the cards as a week was not enough to explore the island. Once you've mastered the bus time tables and pickup points they are great fun and very reasonable. Many thanks to Karen for sharing this house with us.
A lovely place to stay on a lovely island
We enjoyed being in a quiet residential street to get a flavour of real Madeiran life. However it is near the old town resturants the cable car (< 10 mins) .
The house is immaculate, fully equiped and we were able to sunbath on the roof terrace away from any tourists after our lavada walks.
The wifi was invaluable for tourist information and keeping in touch with business at home.
