An amazing location with great views over Funchal. Abel and Theresa gave us a warm welcome, left us fresh fruit and produce from their garden during our stay. They were very kind and helpful if we needed any help. The apartment was well equipped and spacious. It was really nice to pick herbs from the garden for tea or cooking. We would recommend the apartment and Mr Edgar and his family as hosts.
We arrived at Quinta da Bom Sucesso to a lovely welcome from Abel who showed us around the grounds of the property. It is stunning place with a lovely garden and accommodation to match. It lived up to everything I had hoped for and had seen in the pictures. We had beautiful vegetables from the garden and fresh eggs from Abel and Teresa's chickens which we enjoyed every morning for our breakfast. The weather was lovely and so good to have the warmth from the sun at the beginning of February! The views from the garden over Funchal are magical especially at night. Would recommend this acccommdation! Enjoy!
Incredible gardens and lovely hospitality made our stay wonderful. Thank you so much for your thoughtful planning and warm welcome.
The accomodation and garden are just as described an enchanting and idyllic retreat set high above the port on a good bus route The views from the property are stunning- watching the cruise ships coming and going -the twinkling lights of Funchal at night and of course the sun making the houses on the slopes of the city glow in the morning.The gardens around the house are extensive, beautifully kept and a real joy to wander in. Beds of roses, strelitzias and chrysanthemums, not to mention the climbers such as bougainvillia etc and the well stocked vegetable gardens and fruit trees.When you rent the property you have the the whole garden to your self! The owners are so kind, thoughtful and generous in their hospitality. We had arranged through them a taxi at the airport which made our arrival smooth and stress free and later a car hire. When we arrived in the evening there was a meal prepared for us, along side a huge basket of fruit and one of vegetables much from the garden. During the stay you can pick the garden produce which was a real treat. The wifi is trouble free we were able to listen live to Radio 4 etc. There is a superb bakery a few minutes walk away and of course the wonderful market in the centre of Funchal.
Teresa, Abel and their son Henrique went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful holiday and we did..This is a very special place run by very special people. Thank you all again, to Henrique for translating so perfectly duirng our stay, to Abel for getting us to the hire car company on time and to Teresa for her wonderful preserves and passionfruit dessert.We found that what has been said in previous reviews to be totally accurate and would thoroughly recommend this lovely place.
