Guestbook comments from the manager

„Wir waren rundum zufrieden. Die Ausstattung ist hochwertig und gemütlich. Nur die Lüftung im Bad war defekt, worüber wir aber bei der Schlüsselübergabe informiert wurden. Wir haben bewusst eine Lage gewählt, bei der wir eine gute Einkaufsmöglichkeit hatten, das Forum Madeira ist gleich auf der anderen Straßenseite und eine gute Busverbindung, auch die war gleich vor der Tür. Also war es genau wie in der Beschreibung angegeben. Der damit verbundene Straßenlärm wurde durch eine sehr gute Schallisolierung der Fenster bzw. Balkontüren kompensiert.“

First class, well equipped Apartment. Excellent service from small wonderful team. Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 wonderful weeks in this well equipped and well maintained apartment. We were overwhelmed with our Welcome Pack... not only bottled water and bottle of wine, but also bread, butter, eggs and milk! Fresh towels including beach towels, fresh bedding was regularly provided and apartment spotlessly cleaned.

We were blessed with fantastic weather that spent a lot of time with activities including swimming in the sparkling clear blue pool with a mesmerising view of the beach below and ocean. We also enjoyed breakfasts outside on the balcony overlooking tennis court whereby the next generation of tennis champions were being coached. Maybe the next Nadal will come from Madeira! This apartment is perfectly located with a bus stop outside with frequent buses going to Camara dos Lobos and the centre of Funchal. Also you can literally walk 5 minutes to Madeira Forum shopping centre where there's a huge Supermarket, Cinema, Coffee shops, premium Clothing outlets and Restaurants nearby. We have only positive and beautiful things to say about not only Madeira but also our apartment. A big thanks to the owner Jose and his wonderful, helpful and friendly team... David and his parents ( Manual and Maria Rosa ). This is undoubtedly the best holiday accommodation with first class service that I have experienced. I will certainly return again.

Already have recommended it to family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for just about 4 weeks. We would generally like to reflect what others have said.

That being:

• shopping centre right across the street (with large grocery store)

• really nice pool (didn’t seem heated to me)

• spacious flat with plenty of closet space and hangers

• nice sized terrace (great if you like casual tennis watching)

• wonderful, tall shower

• very clean (and done weekly, thanks Maria)

• buses right outside the building

• small but useful kitchen

• location, location, location

• great restaurants within and easy stroll

• nice welcome package

• It is on the ground floor so, easy to get in and out

What we would add (sorry if someone else mentioned this)

• good TV with some English channels

• DVD player (but will not play North American DVDs)

• Great free WIFI! (but will not work with Samsung Galaxy Tab E)

• Wonderful collection of CDs

• Really nice hard wood floors

There were a few downsides these being:

• The garbage and recycle (glass was the worst) were picked up at random times during the wee hours of the nights

• Even though it is relatively quiet, some nights there is street noise.

• The pillows could be replaced

• The beds have foam mattresses which we find too hot

• The freezer door, once opened and closed, could take up to 5 minutes to reopen it

So, when all is said and done, we have stayed dozens of apartments around the world and this is definitely, one of the best.

Super

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days in this apartment and our stay was fantastic. Jose thought of everything! The apartment is even better than in pictures and it's so, so central and quite. The shopping centre is literally a minute walk from the flat and it's got everything you need - it also closes at midnight on weekends! The swimming pool is beautiful with excellent views to the ocean. Well equipped kitchen, smart TV, spacious bathroom, terrace,... nothing to object. We are coming back next year and look forward to booking this apartment again.

We have already booked for next year and we are looking forward to comnig back!

Further Details:

Funchal is a delight to wander around, more like a town than a city, with lots of museums, a marina, parks, bars and restaurants and - of course, lots of little shops to explore! At festival times, there are frequent performances of live music as well as madeiran folk music and dancing which make for a lovely atmosphere.

the trip on the cable car from funchal up to monte is not to be missed, giving fantastic views over the city and surrounding areas. When you get there, you can wander around the world famous church of our lady of monte or visit the spectacular monte palace tropical gardens.

location information: the location of the apartment 'quinta falesia' is in the west funchal, near the 'lido' in front of the shopping centre 'forum madeira' and in the tourists zone where you find the most hotels, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. In the area more than 100 shops and over 100 restaurants. The apartment building is situated on the waterfront direct on the sea cliff with fantastic views to the east, south and west. Local bus stop right in front of the building on the main road with buses every 5-10min to the centre of funchal, 10min drive. Taxi rank next door.
