Fantastic apartment close to all you need in Funchal, the markets, transport, shops, marina, etc.
Only 20 minutes from the airport, we were met by Luisa who showed us into the underground car parking, as previous reviews this is 4 floors down and turnings are tight, but our car was safe and secure.
Upon arrival there was a lovely bowl of fresh strawberries and various cakes/pastries.
The views from the balconies are wonderful, over the cathedral, we could sit and watch the many cruise ships coming and going.
When we return I will not hire a car, you can get the bus from the airport for €5 and the buses are regular and cheap, we used them several times to take us to start points of our levada walks.
Lovely apartment, in the town centre, I would recommend that you book this, rather than an apartment out of town in the soul less hotel sector.
Luis the owner was prompt and helpful with any queries prior to our arrival and very welcoming as we were greeted with his lovely apartment with 3 balconies giving great views across the city to the sea. The apartment has great space and a fully equipped kitchen for those of us who like to cook. The apartment is located in the centre of the city which suited us and has its own parking space. A great bakery is right outside. This is a mountainous island so may not be for all but go and get out of the city and enjoy some fabulous landscape and views across this beautiful island. We'll be back
We were met by Luis who took us into the apartment. The view was amazing. looking out over the town decked with Christmas lights to cruise ships in the harbour and beyond out to sea. The coffee pot was on & there was bread, ham, cheese, milk & fruit so we did not have to worry about shopping on our first evening. The apartment is well equipped & very comfortable. It was only a 5 minute walk to the main street & 10 minutes to the seafront. We stayed here for a month but rarely ate in restaurants as only a few could match the view from the kitchen table. Luis was very helpful & could be contacted by a phone in the apartment. I only mention a problem we had to highlight how quickly it was resolved. One morning we did not have hot water but within hours he had the faulty boiler parts replaced.
Thank you Luis we certainly hope to return,
Great apartment with a lot of space and equipped with everything that might be needed. Very good central location, great balcony view and a cozy feeling of being at home. The owner Luis was really nice and hospitable person. We were surprised with fresh bread, coffee and fruits left on the table.
Overall, it was a lovely stay and I would indeed go back again to that apartment or recommend it to anybody willing to stay in the central part of Funchal.
The apartment is excellent. It is spacious, clean, well equipped and smartly furnished. It is in a great location and has beautiful sea views from the balconies. There is a lovely bakery/ coffee shop downstairs and plenty of bars and restaurants in walking distance. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We had a marvellous holiday and would certainly recommend this accommodation to others.
