“Fantastic apartment, fantastic views!”

As I write this review I am watching the most gorgeous sunset from the balcony of this lovely apartment after two weeks in this beautiful island. If you are thinking of booking this apartment,then do not hesitate. The apartment is clean, spacious, well equipped and has excellent wifi. Niara is most helpful - booking taxis, providing advice on what to see and do, but without being too intrusive. She recommended a jeep tour, which my two teenage boys rate as the best day of the holiday! It was great fun, and if you've never done one, then you haven't lived! We had the most wonderful day out, just the four of us, with our driver Miguel, who was great fun and clearly passionate about Madeira. The exhilaration of standing up in a jeep and feeling the wind in your hair, you really feel the journey, rather than simply being taken there on a coach or minibus. I wasn't sure at first, but I can't wait to come back and do another one! Other highlights included seeing dolphins and the most amazing snorkelling ever! Back to the apartment..... The view from the balcony is exactly like the photos, only better at sunset. There is a supermarket a 10 min walk away, a great bakery, and some brilliant natural pools to swim in (2 euros). There are some great little places to stop and have a coffee or beer (again very cheap) just a short walk away overlooking the beach. The swimming pool was a big hit with my boys, whilst I preferred to swim in the sea opposite the apartment. We loved this apartment, and we shall be dreaming of our evenings on the balcony overlooking the sunset-lit sea. Thank you to Niara and Miguel for a very memorable holiday !

Dear Theresa

Thank you for reviewing all the major good qualities of my apartment (in fact it is even better than you can tell by the photos!) and I'm happy you have enjoyed it so much!

When I met you and your familly this morning to say goodbye I did not realized you´ve already made this review for both of us, me and my husband Miguel, refering the jeep tour experience you've had with him (he had a great time with you too!)

It was a great pleasure giving you the best tips in order you could have the best holiday experience as possible during the time you have been here, and I'm glad you have it! (this is always my main goal).

I would also like to thank you for have taken care of my apartment during your stay (I really apreciated it!) and I really hope you can come back in a near future! We will always be here for you and your familly!

Thank you for everything!

“Great Location with a Fantastic View”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this great apartment for 10 nights and would highly recommend it. Our favourite was the view of the ocean from the balcony. At night we would leave the windows open to hear the sound of the waves. It was so relaxing.

The apartment was very clean and well equipped (washing machine, towels, lots of English TV channels, etc). It was convenient being on the first floor as we could easily walk up one flight of stairs and never had to wait for an elevator. There were plenty of sunloungers at the pool and the pool was cleaned daily.

Niara was brilliant with communication from prior to booking the apartment and during our stay. She gave us a great welcome briefing with plenty of recommendations of places to visit and restaurants.

We really liked the Praria Formosa area as it is very quiet. The beach in front of the apartment is a stone beach but it was still good fun jumping in the waves there. There is a natural pool about a 3 minute walk from the apartment and a supermarket about a 10 minute walk away.

Madeira is a beautiful island with wonderful sights to see and lovely people. We would recommend this island and this apartment to anyone.

“great views, sunny and peaceful”
Reviewed 2 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

stayed here for a week, the apartment is great and has all the required facilities including wifi , sky tv and washing machine, its a wee bit out of town, but there is a courtesy bus from the hotel next door half hourly, and local busses stop at the top of the hill, the walk to camera de lobos is nice.
Niara was excellent to deal with, nothing seemed to be a problem, she met us when we agreed and answerwd texts and e mails promptly, also gave us some hints on what to see and do in Maderia, all of which were excellent.

We will return on our next visit to Maderia

Thank you very much for your kind review!
I just remember, as I made an upgrade in your reservation, you stayed in other apartment I have, by Formosa beach, at the level of the sea ("Sunny & Peaceful Apartment by the Gardens & Sea", reference 6825772). You are making the review in other apartment (“Sunny and central apartment with pool & sea view", reference 6963646), situated on the top of the hill you mentioned, on the main road, with several local buses running and with a bus stop just in front of the complex. However both apartments are very good and all you said is true! It was a great pleasure have met and welcomed you! I hope to see you again in a near future!

“Beautiful apartment in tranquil location”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Beautiful, large, spacious apartment right on the front in a quiet area of Funchal. Huge balcony. Large rooms, comfortable beds and furnishings, lovely sunloungers. Couldn’t have asked for a better location. .

Niara was extremely helpful and great to deal with. She answered emails promptly and gave us detailed directions from the airport and about things to see and do around Madeira.

It was wonderful to fall asleep to the sound of the sea each night and to wake up in the morning, open the curtains and look out at the Atlantic.

Lovely quiet communal pool.

Only slight downside was that the apartment balcony didn’t get any sun until mid afternoon – but you can go and sit at the pool in the morning. So we went off exploring in the morning and relaxed on the balcony from mid afternoon.

Thank you very much for your kind words! It was a great pleasure have met you and I'm happy you have enjoyed your stay! In fact the apartment is very relaxing with the advantage of having sun in the balcony until the sunset (and what beautiful it is to see it from here!). I really hope you can visit us again in the future!
