Beautiful days at formosa Beach

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband and our son) spent wonderful holidays in the Apartment at formosa Beach. The Apartment was very big and fully equipped. The view from the terrace was fantastic. It was all clean and Niara was very very nice and always answered all our questions immediatly. We would definitly recommend this Place and we will turn back. Thank you very much Niara for this great time in Madeira.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to these apartments and again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you to Niara for such a warm welcome again and for providing any information we required. This is a lovely well equipped apartment in a great location. Not too far from Funchal and close to a number of excellent local bars and restaurants. The views from the spacious balcony are wonderful especially at sunset. We would recommend hiring a car in order to see all parts of the island - a drive up into the mountains in the middle of Madeira is a must. We look forward to returning.

A Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Before our arrival the communication and the information we received was excellent, nothing was left uncovered. Transfers were booked from the airport and we was met by a lovely lady who took us to a beautiful apartment. The apartment was all and more of what it said it was. It was clean and well equipped home from home some would say. During our stay we visited local restaurants with excellent service and food which I will writing reviews of excellence on their trip advisor. If you are wanting to see the island in its full beauty and it is beautiful then I can highly recommend a gentleman named Miguel and his private jeep tours of the island. He gives a fantastic insight into Maderias full beauty. His tours are interesting, full of information and loads of fun nothing is too much trouble. Be sure to enquire about his tours they are a must. Overall all the service, the accommodation was all that was said it was and more. As for returning for another visit that would be a yes to the apartment and a big yes for Miguel's jeep island tour.

Nice place, great Views

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed at this condo last week. We had a great time, and loved the location and the views.

Niara welcomed us and gave us all the information needed for our stay, including local places to eat and visit. Niara kept in touch with us (via email) with answers to our questions during our stay.The apartment was clean, spacious, and had everything needed to make it a great stay. Internet connection was very good! The only challenge (because there was 5 of us) was towels, we had to wash them often but it took a while to dry.The place is well situated close enough to the city of Funchal (about a 40 minute walk) and the shopping center Forum (25 minutes walk), closer still to a major supermarket. Our holiday highlight was a jeep tour, with Miguel organized by Niara. This was my first trip to Madeira, and I plan to do it again! Madeira is a beautiful island. Will certainly recommend Madeira and this property to my family and friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive review. In fact the apartment is very well situated with restaurants and coffee shops just nearby. There is also a big supermarket 5 minutes walking from the apartment, so no need to go further to the bigger shopping center Forum Madeira. Thanks for the recommendation about the towels. I will take it in consideration as my main goal is the maximum comfort of my guests. I hope we can meet each other again. You will always welcome!

Fabulous Madeira Experiences

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment immediately after returning home from same in 2015. Niara and Miguel are so welcoming and really make you feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble and they have great advice about restaurants, bars, shopping, tours etc. Miguel took us on a half day jeep tour which was one of our highlights. Off main roads, seeing authentic Madeira with a stop for coffee and another for poncha!!

The apartment was well equipped and has a fantastic balcony- huge, with amazing sea views and we would certainly recommend it to friends and relatives.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two trips to Madeira and would recommend Levada walks and tours with Sunrise tours. You learn so much from the guides. Funchal is a charming small city and very easy to walk round and see the sights.

Our best meals were in Peixe do Vila in Camara de Lobos and Polar Norte in Porto Moniz which served amazing fish dishes at very reasonable prices.

Thank you Niara and Miguel for 2 lovely holidays.

The apartment had a fantastic view that the pictures don't give justice. It was very clean and of good order, everything worked as it should. Fast wireless internet (fibre speeds) which I dont think a lot of owners give a lot of attention, no problem here.

Niara was fantastic, gave a lot of information and was very responsive for ad-hoc enquiries. The half day jeep ride was one of the highlights given by Miguel, we weren't sure at first but would definitely recommend it, you get to see a lot that you wouldnt normally see. Miradour restaurant, good steak and free transfers, prices good as well. Went on a catamaran and seen two sets of dolphins. Great holiday, thank you Niara.
