“Fantastic Place”
Reviewed 22 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Many thanks to Richard & Elaine for allowing us to stay at your wonderful villa Quinta Elena with all its excellent facilities and so central to Funchal town centre. It had all that we required, spacious rooms in traditional style, comfortable beds and the private garden. There was a very good bakery, shops and eating places nearby, especially the Le Bistros which is highly recommended, where we dined on a couple of occasions served by Nico with his friendly manner and wonderful charm and Philippe the French chef for his tasty cuisine. We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days in Madeira and it all seems to have been so short and brief now that we have had to return home. Our taxi driver and tour guide Manuel was very informative about the history and culture of the island and took us on absolutely breathtaking trips to amazing viewpoints and places of interest around Madeira. Manuel was very knowledgable, spoke very good English, was kind and considerate in his manner and an absolute gentleman and a pleasure to have as a guide. Would certainly recommend this property and its location to Funchal town centre as a place to stay.
We would certainly love to return to this property.

“Spacious and traditional”
Reviewed 8 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The Location was very good for walking into Funchal, and there was a small supermarket and bakery within 5 minutes of the villa. The garden was very private and well tended. The bedrooms were a good size and the beds were firm but comfortable. It was traditionally furnished with plenty of chairs and it was great to have 3 different outdoor spaces for different times of the day.

“Character, Comfort and Great Hospitality”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

We booked Quinta Elena for a week in May and were not disappointed. The place has great character and, unlike some "character" places we have been in was also modern and comfortable. We were met at the airport (part of the rental!) and shown round the [place straight away. The back yard is adorable and clearly they are very keen gardeners (cuttings supplied!). It is within 10-15 minutes walk of the very centre of Funchal but there are many excellent restaurants a patisserie with cakes to die for just round the corner.
All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay and we wish we had booked two weeks!

“No plastic windows here”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Spacious old house furnished with antique furniture. 2 balconies to sit out on, as well as a private walled garden. Well equipped, although the provision of bins to enable the recycling of rubbish would be a useful and environmentally positive addition. Comfy beds! The house was well run by the housekeeper, Emilia. Only a 10 minute walk from the town centre, (15 minutes coming back!), with good access to buses, and yet quietly situated. Not often that we'd consider renting a property twice, but we would do with this one.

“Lovely property on a lovely Island”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My extended family and I (5 of us) stayed at Quinta Elena in August 2014 and I can thoroughly recommend the property. It was well equipped, well maintained, spacious, and well located being just 10-15 minutes walk from the centre of Funchal. Richard and Elaine, the owners, recommended Manuel, a local taxi driver (they sent details with the booking) and we made good use of him hiring him for two full and one half days - if you have not been to Madeira before, the roads can be sinuous and challenging and making use of Manuel meant I could relax instead of driving; also it meant we visited places we would not have otherwise. Although the local swimming pool they recommended did not honour the discount we still made use of it, and the discounted price was still available after 5PM each day which left (in August 2014) up to 2 hours of pool time. All in all very pleased with our stay and hope to visit the island again.
