Wonderful location overlooking Funchal
The house and extraordinary patio overlooking the entire town of Funchal from this "mountain home" was exceptionally comfortable, but of course our best moments were spent in the evenings watching the sun set while having delicious dinners and Portuguese wine on the balcony.
The owners showed exceptional patience at check-in regarding our exasperating flight delay and lost baggage (it was delivered at 10:30 PM that night).
We will remember that wonderful view and the soft breeze on the balcony for a long time to come.

Beautiful view of beautiful Funchal
We had a wonderful time in Funchal. The apartment was lovely with a gorgeous view! We were close to the bus stops so we had no need for a car. Even though our flight arrived late Duarte still picked us up at 1am. Thank you so much for a great week!
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.
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!
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
