“Lovely studio apartment in convenient location”
Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed for a week in Jan 2016. The apartment is as shown in the photos, very well appointed and equipped for two people. The interior is light and well decorated and the balcony is spacious and we were able to eat outside most of the time. After dark it is worth keeping the doors closed as there were one or two flying insects. The location is convenient for local shops (5 mins walk) and a shopping mall c 10 mins walk which includes a supermarket where you can buy fresh fish. There is a nice seafront promenade and pebbly beach c 15 mins walk. Car parking was easy.
From the balcony there is a good sea view over the wall (c 1.5 metres high). There were some buildings including one being constructed with a crane but overall the view was good, including sunsets.
We met Nuno on arrival and he was very helpful. He did explain that the jacuzzi was not working and he was trying to get it fixed - however this wasn't possible in the end which was the only down-side to the stay as it would have been nice to use it after a day's walking. We did note in the guest comments that it had been working previously though.

“Stylish, comfortable and good location”
Reviewed 23 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

the apartment was excellent and stylishly furnished. Well equipped and near local shops and restaurants . we bought a 3 day bus pass which gave us cheap and easy access into Funchal.
Lovely spacious patio area with fine views from the 7th floor of the sea.
Excellent welcome from Nuno, who provided a welcome pack of food and drink as well as local information.

“Looking for a fabulous apartment? - This is it!”

We contacted the owners on the Friday and were in by Saturday due to problems elsewhere. Helena gave us very clear location info and Nuno met us there and showed us around their wonderful apartment. Nothng has been spared! Much thought and skill has clearly been put into this project. All the little extras, such as basics which many apartments don't provide are there. They even left us some fresh bread, fruits and cheese with water as a welcoming snack.

The apartment is top floor with a large outdoor terrace - fully kitted out with eating area, sofas, sun beds and a touch of extra luxury in the hot tub! The terrace is very private, yet has wonderful sea views and just right for the evening sunsets.

The furnishings have been beautifully considered in tones of blue and cream. Very comfortable double bed with luxurious memory foam mattress and pillows. If it's a tad warm, the aircon is available. Dishwasher, washing machine and all cooking mod cons there too. Even had an electric BBQ for the outdoor cooking experience.

We found the location very quiet, with a bus stop just down the road if needed. The Forum shopping Centre is just 5mins away, but the local shop around the corner is better value for fruit and veg. We ate a couple of times at Esputta on the main Estrada Monumental - great meats and their tourist menu is excellent value at just 15.95 euro for 3 courses - you certainly won't go hungry

Helena & Nuno were extremely helpful and were always available via email - even warning us of the change in weather.

Can definately recommend this apartment - we certainly would like to return too.
