Very comfortable with great views from bedrooms
Lovely spacious property, well equipped and tastefully presented.
Being halfway up a steep hill we resorted to taxis to take us home in the evenings.
Really nicely decorated with subtle touches of class in the ornaments and furniture. Garden lovely
What a fantastic property. From the moment we walked in we felt at home. Nicely decorated with lovely comfortable furniture. Nice variety of ornaments and personal touches all over the house. The garden is beautiful and relaxing. Patios doors opened up give you the feeling of living outside even when you are inside. Loved the kitchen and cooked two or three times while we were staying. The thing we really loved was having plenty of hand soap, toilet rolls etc - the bottle of wine on the table in our arrival was lovely - thank you.
Some extra towels would have been nice but not a problem only a suggestion.
We had a bit of a problem as my wife hurt her knee just before going on a Lavada walk. The fact that we could phone Nuno and Diego the taxi drivers was brilliant. They even looked after our cases while we spent the last few hours down at the Beerhouse before Nuno collected us to go the the airport for us to travel home.
Carolina was so helpful all the way through the holiday with advice about wi fi etc.
We recommend this house wholeheartedly and would return again in an instant.
Thank you so much
Comfortable & Spacious House / Garden in Good Location
We had a brilliant holiday in January (2 adults) and were fortunate to have fantastic dry & sunny weather. We used the airport bus to stop 3 and followed Carolina's detailed directions and found the property easily (I previously "walked" the route on google maps !) It was lovely to meet Carolina & Pedro at the property. It was a steep climb up the hill dragging cases but the hill although steep did not cause us any problems during the holiday. I convinced myself it was helping improve my fitness levels for the many walks we did. The highlight being being the the Pico do Arierio to Pico Ruivo walk - sensational & highly recommended for guests who have decent fitness levels and a good head for heights.
The house is on two levels, you walk into the top level from the street & go down stairs to the sitting areas & well equipped kitchen. We spent little time in the house as we had long days out walking but occasionally we enjoyed relaxing in the garden ( & hammock !!) . Carolina was very helpful, and a few minor issues ( I could not connect to internet ) were resolved quickly & efficiently.
As previous guests mentioned, the streets are narrow & I did not attempt to park the hire car in this street and used the next street up the hill, as this was wider and we always found a parking spot. The second street up the hill is very wide and there is lots of parking. It was the first time I had hired a car in Madeira and the expressways were easy to drive on. The very steep & bendy mountain roads were generally quiet and the rewards were worth the high levels of concentration required. You need to be comfortable with steep hill starts & multiple point turns ( Never managed a 3 point turn !)
Occasionally you could hear barking dogs at night & some building work during the day. These are outside Carolina's control & were never intrusive and did not spoil the enjoyment of our holiday. This is my third property rental in Funchal & my favorite so far. Carolina & Pedro were lovely & readily available to assist in any way. Thanks for a great holiday.
John and your Wife were impeccable and bestial hosts.
The door to the house will always be open for you. Have a good year. I hope to see you again.
This apartment was a good choice.It is very tastefully furnished and decorated,with artifacts .
The appartment has a nice garden and a view to die for from upstairs.Its a short walk to the city downhill and we as pensioners took a taxi back at 5 euros.We went up the cable way and the Mont has a breathtaking view.We also took the hop on hop off and enjoyed the food at various restaurants at very affordable prices.The wine at the nearby minemarket was great at 4 euros a bottle.We enjoyed our holiday and slept well at night.Caroline is a great host and we would come back anytime
Lovely clean, well equipped house. Pretty garden
We had a great week. Loved bring in old town. Enjoyed using local mini-supermarket. Fantastic view - just wish it could have been available from downstairs too. Maybe a chair or stool might have been nice in second bedroom to enjoy the view whilst resting too. Overall very good experience.
Beautiful view and relaxing
Well equipped and nicely decorated. The house has a beautiful ocean view, a lovely garden, and is a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
