Pleasantly surprised by how large the apartment is. At the same time it is very comfortable in interior furnishings. The position is great as I don’t think you could get much closer to Funchal centre than this. Weather is OK for exploring the great Lavada walks.
We had a lovely stay in December, we arrived on December 1st. The apartment was in a perfect position, close to everything, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and the marina area. The apartment itself was clean, superbly well appointed, everything you could possibly need was included. We were met at the apartment by Luisa, she gave us a lovely welcome, showed us around and left us to start our holiday and to make a lovely cup of tea, milk, water and teabags supplied. The apartment is very spacious, it is much bigger than in looks in the pictures, the balconies were fantastic, we spent much of our week sitting in the sun and looking out at the beautiful Christmas lights at night, In summary I would highly recommend this apartment and it will certainly be our first choice on our next visit to Funchal.
This is a lovely, very well equpped apartment with great views over the sea and city.
Luis met us outside the building on our arrival and the welcome pack provided was much appreciated.
The mini mercado along Rua dos Netos was very convenient and well stocked. We went to the Pingo Doce in La Vie for other supplies, it was a lot easier than slogging up the hill from Continente.
The Pattiserie downstairs was excellent, good value with very helpful staff.
Can't recommend the apartment highly enough and hopefully we will return.
Many thanks Luis for keeping in touch during our stay.
Came on holiday with my fit 85 year old mum.
Amazing apartment, has everything you need- even extras like pegs and liquidiser and dishwasher tablets. Superb views- you can watch the ships come and go. Apartment is spacious and we had a lovely welcome pack of goodies.
It’s quiet as peaceful but only a 10 minute walk to the Old Town, cathedral, main shopping areas or the sea. Recommend the yellow bus Funchal tour to get your bearings.
Louis met us at the airport- well worth it for the lack of hassle finding a bus or taxi.
Wishing we could have stayed longer than a week.
Hope to be back!
We have just returned from a wonderful fortnight holiday at Casa dos Netos.
The apartment is much better than it looks in the images on the website, it is lighter, airier, larger, more modern.
The dishwasher and washing machine were both used, the kitchen is well equipped with a large fridgefreezer, crockery, pans, cutlery etc.
Both bathrooms are clean and full size, one ensuite and one off the lounge area. Perfect for two couples although we were only one.
The sofas are comfortable, and a great place to relax. The TV worked and was large and modern but we didn’t use it, and the wifi worked extremely well.
Luis was helpful before and during our stay. Our flight was diverted to Porto Santo due to high winds, and we had to stay there for a night. Luis was accommodating and friendly.
We could walk to the Marina and Zona Velha in around 10 minutes, and importantly the walk back although uphill was fine. Much of Funchal is very hilly but this is very easy.
There are 2 or 3 small supermarkets within a 3 minute walk, and a large Continente one in 10 minutes.
The parking was great, in the underground car park. A few steps to the lift, then a few steps on the 4th floor to the apartment – never been so easy to get the cases in!
The bus stop to Monte is over the road, and everywhere is close – the Cathedral, tourist office, tons of restaurants and bars. We walked to the Hotel Zone, had a lovely meal - got a bus back. We were pleased we stayed in Funchal itself and not the Hotel Zone, more character and less touristy (IMHO).
The café bakers downstairs looked great, but we never got to sample it!
Whilst in Madeira, we did many walks (levada and others), Pico de Areiro was amazing as was the Fanal area, a whale/dolphin spotting boat trip, a couple of beach days, some scenic drives. We had loads more on our list to do – and if we return to do all these things – we will definitely stay at this apartment.
