Good accommodation with great views of the city & port
On a short solo break my need was basically for self catering bed & breakfast accommodation. I was drawn to this apartment by the photos of the view from the balcony and I was not disappointed. If you go there be on the balcony at around 7-00am to watch the cruise ships arrive in a blaze of lights.
I was met on arrival by Duarte who spent time providing me with access, information about the apartment, contact details and a link to bus timetables (very useful if not hiring a car). I felt nothing was too much trouble for him.
The apartment is a good size and comfortable. Whilst there were a few areas requiring some minor maintenance (loose fittings in the shower for example) overall the accommodation was excellent. Be aware however that the access from the road is steep if you have any mobility issues.
If intending to use public transport around Funchal rather than hiring a car buy a Giro card and load with multiple journeys. Also as the nearest supermarket is an extended walk away factor in buying any food provisions in the city centre supermarkets to bring back on the bus.
Though a good way from the centre the apartment is well served by local transport which runs to time in accordance with the published timetable. The journey to the city centre takes about 20 minutes and is an experience in itself along steep narrow roads. And the view from the balcony ......5 star.
Thanks Duarte for the hire of the apartment and for your consideration and concern when my return flight was delayed overnight. I was well looked after by the airline but much appreciated the offer to return to the apartment if necessary. I will recommend to anyone travelling to Madeira that they consider your apartment as a base.
A very beautiful Apartment ,good situated.Durate is a nice host
And very helpful.
Fantastic View in a good location
The view is really stunning, both when it is bright and sunny and at night. If you like boat spotting, this is the place for you!
We didn't sit out as much as we had hoped as it rained quite a bit but you can still see the view through the window. We also liked the second rear private sheltered seating area.
The apartment was well equipped, particularly in the kitchen, with pots, pans and plenty of useful utensils and equipment.
Despite being able to see the motorway from the balcony, there is very little noise and it is certainly not a problem, in fact almost silent at night.
The bed was very comfortable, the only issue I had was that the room doesn't black out at night, due to quarter light window at the top on the room for which there is no way of covering.
There is plenty of storage in the apartment and it is very spacious.
The local bus service is very good so we didn't need a car but were collected and dropped off at the airport by the owner which was very convenient.
The nearest supermarkets are a 5 minute bus ride, or a 25 minute walk, away.
I would recommend this as a place to stay near Funchal and preferable to the more commercial area at the western side of Funchal. It is very hilly though so bear that in mind if you don't like walking up steep slopes, or hire a car!
Loué pour 15 jours, nous sommes accueillis chaleureusement par le propriétaire et nous montre sa location qui est très propre et très bien équipé, la terrasse donne une vue magnifique sur funchal et la mer comme sur les photos, malheureusement l'environnement est très bruyant en contrebas le bruit constant de la voie express ainsi que les aboiements jours et nuit d'un élevage de chiens on ternis ce fabuleux séjour, impossible de dormir la fenêtre ouverte, rajouter a cela la deuxième semaine 4 jours de marteau piqueur et de perforateur du a des travaux de rénovation d'un appartement attenant nous obligeant a quitter la location tous les jours sans que le propriétaire ne puisse intervenir faute de présence sur madère, cela fais chère la semaine d'une location dont on ne peut profiter.
Also perfect for the second time....
After 2014 we returned for the second time and had lovely 2 weeks in this very nice appartment. With 3 adults ( 68, 66 and 52 years old ) we enjoyed the location including the car we rented from the owners of the appartment. The magnific view from the large balcony with tremendous view over Funchal where we spent nice evenings. Thanks to the great hospitality of the host family. We are sure that it will not be the last time and look forward to coming back soon. Helmut, Margret and Gabriella
Delightful apartment with fantastic views!
The apartment was spacious, clean and well maintained with plenty of outside space. This comprised of a large sunny terrace with amazing views over the city and harbor, and also a rear courtyard with BBQ and dining table with plenty of shade.
For us the location was ideal, 2 minutes drive from the expressway and 5 to 10 minutes drive from the city centre. This was just what we wanted, far enough from the centre for a quiet, relaxing break but close enough for convenience. We also found the beds very comfortable.
Duarte was extremely helpful and did a great job of looking after us. I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again and would recommend it to anyone!
