Why cath chose Funchal

We purchased this property because of the location, being situated on the road above ESTRADA MONUMENTAL it is perfect, peaceful and close to all amenities.

Another main point is the temperature, being the south it's always warm and bright.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

Really loved Cath and Jorge's apartment, a real home from home which was needed as we stayed for almost a month. Comfy sofas and beds, large tv with a few English channels, efficient Wifi, clean well equipped kitchen with a double electric oven and 4 ring gas hob (if you need it!) Brilliant sea view from the lounge where you can watch the Santa Maria sailing by and fishing boats and catamarans. The lack of a balcony wasn't an issue as the armchairs could be placed next to the French doors in the lounge. There was also access to the roof where there were sun loungers, a bistro set where you could have breakfast or a glass or two in the evening. Everything in the apartment was spotless. Nothing was too much trouble and if there had been a problem, Cath was not far away. The only time we had to contact her was to arrange the linen change every week. On arrival we had a lovely welcome pack of milk, butter, ham, cheese etc and some super fresh fruit from Cath's garden. Loads of great places to eat and drink in the locality and hundreds more to choose from after a 20 min walk or short bus ride into Funchal. Prices reasonable everywhere, hotels welcome non-residents but are a little more expensive. We travelled all over the island on public transport which was brilliant (and cheap) when you got the hang of it. The only place to defeat us was a trip to the volcanic caves which we had to do through an independent tour company. There are many companies offering trips, a good majority linked with hotel chains who want you to attend promotional meetings before you get the discounted price for a tour. For a full day, our company charged 20 euros each + 6 euros (normally 8) for entrance to the caves plus stops at several viewing points and places of interest.. Worth every cent!! Booking a month not knowing anything about Madeira was a bit reckless but it all worked out as we totally fell in love with this incredible island. It isn't for everyone - there are no beaches (but a brilliant Lido nearby for a small charge) and you are either walking up a hill or down one, hardly any flat routes but the scenery is breathtaking and the people are friendly, polite and so patient, we didn't hear a car horn pressed in frustration all the time we were there. Can thoroughly recommend Cath and Jorge's cosy, homely apartment. Can't wait to return.

home from home!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a real home from home, everything you could want. The view is lovely. Very close to good restaurants and to a very good supermarket. Cath is very efficient and is very welcoming, leaving a fabulous welcome pack, so you dont immediately have to shop.

Funchal is very pretty and the people are very proud and there are events like flower shows and classic car shows on regularly.

The only thing which was slightly dissapointing was the roof terrace, a small investment needs to be made to replace the flooring around the sunbeds, my feet were constantly black off the tar on the roof and it would of been nice to have a parrisol available to sit in the shade occasionally.

Overall would use the apartment again and would recommend to friends

Excellent apartment good location

  • 4 of 5

I can thoroughly recommend this apartment. It is clean and has excellent views and is well located to walk or catch the bus into Funchal. Cath is an excellent manager and dealt with any queries we had. We were there in February and the only thing I would say was that the first 2 weeks some heating in the apartment would have been a bonus.You can even get a tan sitting on the roof! Just down the road (turn left as you exit the property) where the road turns down hill to the right there is an excellent restaurant. Best to book it as it gets very busy.If we were returning to Madeira we would most certainly book this apartment again

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second very enjoyable three week stay in Acqua Marina M and our third holiday in one of Cath-Louise and Jorge's apartments and had a great holiday. The food pack and welcome are excellent and the apartment really is a home from home.

Cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Nice and tidy apartment with wonderful view to the ocean. Welcome package is waiting for you not only on the table, but also in the fridge. And you will never forget the taste of avocados from Cath garden. You get everything you need for comfortable stay. If you like cooking – the kitchen is fully equipped.

If your luggage is far away from you – you can use washing machine. If you like morning coffee with nice view – this apartment is also for you. If you need something write a text message and Cath will be there for you.

If you like walking centre is 20 minutes away. Lido complex is not far away. If you like to rent a car, try one of two rentals on the same street. And if you like Indian cuisine – visit nearby restaurant (down the stairs and go to the right and again a little bit up. You won‘t forget the taste and the portions.

So if we‘ll come to Funchal once more, we definitely stay at Cath apartment. It is worth every cent you pay.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment is well appointed being in the Lido area of Funchal. The nearest supermarket is just 5 mins. walk away although down some steps. It is possible to walk into Funchal but there are plenty of buses. We stayed for 11 weeks and were very happy. The apartment has everything in it for a long stay and the kitchen is well equipped. Cath and Jorge are a delightful couple who couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Jorge met us at the airport and Cath greeted us at the apartment. They both come in to clean once a week too so nothing for us to do but relax. As we were away so long, it was useful to find a library for 'International' guests from where we borrowed many books. We have already booked another 12 weeks!
