We spent 6 weeks in this penthouse flat which is very well located having vis-á-vis the big shopping center "Forum Madeira". The bus stop is just in front of the door.
The flat is very comfortable and well equipped. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. In front of one of the bedroom we could admire the infinite beauty of the ocean.
The location is situated in the Lido area, the view from the balcony and bedroom was just amazing. Everything that we needed and more. There is a hair dryer, towels and even a beach towel left for us. The communication with the owner Miguel was excellent. We were picked up at the airport by Marco, he was friendly and he even gave us a tour of the old town before taking us to the apartment. During our stay I was contacted by Miguel and Macro to make sure that everything was going well. Marco arranged a walking trip for us which was excellent. Thankyou Miguel and Marco I would highly recommended this apartment to friends and family.
My husband and I stayed for six nights Sept/Oct 2017. The apartment is spacious and bright and has laundry facilities, two bathrooms and a nicely equipped kitchen and comfortable living room. The view from the living room is wonderful. The owner is very responsive to e-mails. We had asked to have a few groceries bought for us, and they were waiting for us upon arrival - much appreciated!
We feel the ad stating there are king-sized bed is not accurate however. We have a king-sized bed at home and neither of the beds in the apartment are close to what we have. We are both nearly 6 feet and not overweight, and found the beds too small to both sleep in, so we had separate rooms here.
Our flight was quite getting in and there was still someone there to greet us and orient us with the condo. However there was very little toilet paper and it wasn't until I made a third inquiry with the owner (previous two inquires went to folks he'd put us in touch with who were helping him manage the condo) that we got toilet paper. And it was very off-putting to find a piece of chewed gum on a bedside table!
Being that the condo has a kitchen it would have been super to have had information about where the nearest grocery store was (in the mall across the street). For our time in Funchal, the condo served it's purpose.
We stayed in this apartment for the third time and have booked again for next year.
It is ideally located close to bars and restaraunts all within walking distance, the shopping mall opposite is also very convienient, only a ten minute bus ride to Funchal.
The apartment is short of nothing that you could need during your stay and is very comfortable indeed, it has a great pool although was getting quite busy towards the end of our stay.
Cant wait for next year.
Fantastic apartment with home comforts. Great location, great views and very attentive owners who look after you from start to finish. Everything you could want for a perfect holiday on this beautiful island. Will be booking again for next year!
