We stayed for 10 days in late October. The apartment is well equipped and nicely presented. It's location overlooking the marina is excellent and all 3 of us enjoyed the views of a constantly changing scenery of sailing boats and cruise ships. We would be very happy to stay there again!
The apartment is located on the fifth floor of a block above the Marina shopping centre in the centre of Funchal. The Municipal Theatre Baltazar Dias is next door, another major shopping centre, complete with a large PIngo Dulce supermarket, is about 100 metres away and many of the major sites of Funchal are within 5 to 10 minutes walk. We made good use of Madeira's buses - the bus station is 5 minutes walk away - to visit local sites. We also asked the Taxi driver who Carolina, the owner, arranged to collect us from the airport (the friendly and very helpful Manuel - message me for a phone number) to take us to the summit of Pico do Arieiro, Madeira's 3rd highest mountain.
A highlight of the apartment for us was its view over Funchal harbour, with large cruise ships coming and going to the passenger dock a few hundred metres away.
Carolina's communications with us were frequent and very helpful . There is very good wifi available at the apartment, and we also found the island's 3G and 4G coverage was excellent.
Overall we would strongly recommend this apartment and the helpfulness and efficiency of its owner and would happily stay there again in the future. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
We should probably note that there was some building work taking place on the harbour-side at the time of our stay but this wasn't disruptive and we actually found it interesting to watch. During the day we were, in any case, out most of the time.
Right from the start Caroline mail and ask - when we arrivel, whits brochure we were interested in, is everything ok, and wished us a good journey. On side support Antonio piched us up at the airport for a small charge, and showed us organized with Apartment and the area. The Apartment was clean, light and airy, with all the needed. Its on the 5. floor, with elevator and own parking space in the basement, very close to the park and center, and a big supermarked 7 minuts walk. From the balcony is a magnificent view of the marina and the cruise ships. Currently there is less work on a small part of the marina, it gives a little noise, but not enough to spoil the fun, while there is something to look at. I return to the Apartment NeXT time I visit Maderia. Thanks to Caroline.
