Super !!!

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Madeira a few times now, staying in both hotels and apartments, this apartment is the best accommodation I have stayed in by far. Jose, who is the owner, was quick to respond to any questions we had. He even took care of our transfer from the airport at a cheap price. The apartment was super clean and very well equipped. I have never seen such a well-equipped apartment like this! There is even a kitchen radio. It is well located and the pool garden is amazing, really well taking care of. The fantastic pool offers amazing views over the Atlantic and there are enough sunbeds and umbrellas for everyone. Sometimes if you are lucky you get to see dolphin from a distance!

Across the road from the apartment there are bus stops for Funchal , Camara de lobos and even Monte which is really practical . If you wish you can even walk to Funchal and Camara de lobos ,Monte is too far away to walk.

Madeira Forum, which is a shopping mall, is just 5 mins walk from the apartment. The shopping mall has a large supermarket, various cafes, restaurants and a cinema with English films!

Thank you Jose, for letting us rent your apartment. We will be definitely back ! .

Excellent Apartment 5/5 - Location, cleanliness and overall appearance

  • 5 of 5

As first time users of Home and Away both my partner and I were blown away by this spotlessly clean apartment, all fixtures and fittings were of good quality and everything we could need for our two week stay was included and more, although we ate out all the time there were so many extra pots and pans if you required. Loved the extended balcony.

The only addition that would be handy are a few notes included in the instruction manual mentioning local information e.g. restaurants that visitors would recommend within walking distance which would be handy for when you arrive especially if it is late evening and possibly mentioning how the local bus service operates.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment for the location and quality.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as stated in fact it was so much better than we expected it was like home from home, the cleanliness of the apartment was impeccable and the pool area and gardens were very nice too.....Funchal is an amazing place with lots to see and do......the taxi man was very informative on the way to the apartment and said we could hire them for the day to take us around and see the sites but I'm afraid I do not travel very well so did not take him up on it but was a very competitive price.....all in all we enjoyed it so much and would have liked to stay longer and would not hesitate to book again.....

Would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment that is well equipped and absolutely spotless. The pool area is a perfect suntrap for sunbathers, and the apartment has a large balcony that overlooks a tennis court. You also have a side sea view.

The apartment is located in a prime position with the Forum Shopping Centre 2 minutes away that has shops like H&M, Zara, a hair/nail salon, etc, as well as Cinemas, coffee shops, restaurants a supermarket and even a C&A!

The centre of Funchal is about a 50 minute walk away. However, if you don't feel like walking, there is a bus stop right outside the property.

When making the booking, Jose (the owner) was always quick to reply, and made the booking process very easy. He also arranged for me to be collected/taken back to the airport for a charge of 28euro each way.

On arriving at the apartment Rosa (the cleaner) and her husband (who does the airport transfers) showed me around the apartment, gave me the keys and showed me the "welcome pack" of rolls, milk, eggs, butter, water and a bottle of wine. It's thoughtful gestures like this that show that the guest(s) are being thought of.

I would definitely have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Thank you. Karen

First Class

  • 5 of 5

What can we say! Being novices to Owners Direct Jose directed us through the process with ease. From the pick up at the airport to arrival at the apartment was first class and timeously. Central location and spotlessly clean apartment. Would not hesitate to recommend and return. Thank you, Ann and Robert.

This apartment is so well located that it is really easy to get by and really makes the most of our holidays. We use the apartment two to three time a year and it just heaven on earth! The reason we chose to buy this apartment was simply -upmarket area and location,location,location ! Everything is at our door step, no car needed!
