Maderia Heaven I

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was the best VRBO that Mary and I have rented in the past 3 years and we have traveled to the Caribbean, Mexico, France and Portugal. Everything was better than depicted not lacking anything. Walter and Veerle provided maps, instructions, car pick-up and we even went out to a wonderful skewered pineapple steak dinner with them at a local restaurant, A Central, during the Onion festival. The Condo has a local phone, covered garage and had very nice pool.

We rented a car which is necessary and drove over most of the beautiful Island during our 8 day stay. Our Garmin GPS was new and we had some problems finding specific roads, however, it worked well for sites. Would pre-load/test a new GPS in the future. Tunnels are an engineering wonder that run for miles and miles and the roads are all excellent.

Funchal was a wonderful town with numerous gardens and a terrific marina to explore. Flowers are everywhere!!! Old town is really nice. Something is always going on. During our stay, there was a fantastic car show. Three course meals of the day/lunches are good values. Le Jardin in Funchal is a must do and was one our favorite restaurants which served terrific Flambe fish dishes and fried black scabbard with banana.

Near Praia Formosa is a neat restaurant, Doca Do Cavacas, that served terrific fried prawns, while overlooking some small lava pools that you can swim at as well as Praia Formosa.

Fort restaurant, highly rated, was on our list which we missed and serves a 4 course meal, lunch and dinner with all the wine you want , with a good view and reasonable prices. Must have reservations. Must take a cab if you drink .

Monte has magnificent flower gardens and the sleds are terrific to see.

Hop on hop off two bus tours are a good value to get to review what you want to see in Funchal and nearby area.

Porto Moniz lava pools are a must see and would be wonderful to swim at in the warmer weather. Had 3 course lunch at the Cahalote restaurant which has a great view but the pork was tough.

Calaheta Hotel and Beach has a nice sandy swimming beach and a very good lunch menu.

Macchhio also has a very nice sandy beach/marina and great little town to explore. Mercado Vehlo restaurant serves an excellent Maderia steak and Banana scabbard fish.

Maderia is a wonderful vacation island to explore.

Porto Santo Island would have been a nice two day trip if we had more time.

Thank you Veerle and Walter for a Heavenly Vacation !

Lovely Apartment on Lovely Madeira Island

  • 5 of 5

After spending 10 days in Spain, this apartment was the perfect "vacation from vacation" weekend. We arrived late at night and even though we got a little lost (use owner's direction guidelines, not GoogleMaps), the property manager was patient and met with us to go through the apartment and make sure we were settled in. We spent a couple of days exploring the island but it was nice to be able to return to the clean and modern apartment in the afternoon and evenings to take a nap, take a dip in the pool and even cook a couple meals for ourselves. We will definitely return and hope to stay for quite a few more days to see the entirety of the island and to enjoy more of this "heaven" with a beautiful view.

Real heaven away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came only for a weekend early October. The owner was very accommodating for the short stay and we had a fantastic weekend there with excellent weather and some great scuba diving.

The apartment is huge, stylishly furnished, clean, all very new and has everything and much more than you need. We decided to cook a dinner one night ourselves and ate in the little dinner corner in the kitchen which was amazing given the nice view. Next morning we had breakfast on the balcony.

Check-in and out was flexible and the lady was very helpful with some local recommendations.

So we can surely recommend the stay in Heaven and are planning to go back sometime soon.

  • 5 of 5

"Everything was perfect, started with the friendly welcome of Frederco, with the bottle of champagne and of course with the lovely and clean *****-appartment.

There were so many details which we loved such as the dishes, the modern furniture, the excellent equipped kitchen, the high-class beds, internet etc. We enjoyed our stay very much. We passed many hours on the terrasses. From the kitchentable, you have a marvelous view. It is just a few minutes from Funchal and the Airport away and a good starting point to explore the island. A place which we can recommend warmly.

"Absolutely new house. All amenities is in very high standard. Everything was perfect except one thing, new building in front of the house made a lot of noise. It was disturbing, especially in the morning."
