Booking was easy, Luis was very prompt and helpful with replies.
Got to the apartment, although taxi driver couldn't find it. It's in the area of Sao Gonchalo.
We ended up getting the ground floor flat, which gave us the facilities to sit and lie in the sun, but also have that fantastic view from the terrace.
Luis met us st the flat and couldn't have been more helpful, told us where to get bus, shopping etc...even dropped us st the supermarket as it was late....thanks again for that Luis. Really appreciated.
Luis was also on tap if we needed a taxi to go anywhere or anything.
Property huge inside, 3 large spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large kitchen. All inside facilities great, no issues even washing machine and we caught up with washing before going home. Wifi is excellent strength and can also reach to the terrace.
Very quiet area and felt very safe, it is very hilly, so if you have mobility issues, you will need to take a taxi or hire a car. If your mobility is done, then bus stop 5 minute walk, which takes you into central Funchal in 10 minutes. It's not walkable to the centre due to the position of the roads.....but dangerous to walk as very busy road.
Small snack shop/bar nearby, pharmacy and also a restaurant Zarcos where we ate every day....excellent food and service and the view is outstanding.
We met owners whilst there as they are very hands on and couldn't have been more welcoming.
Would recommend this property to families, couples friends....suitable for all types.
If quiet, but central is what you like, this is perfect.
