Great apartment in great location.
The apartment was very spacious and very well appointed. The location was excellent with the harbour very close and lots of restaurants and bars nearby.
Fantastic property great location
Everything went to plan for us, because Sarah was so helpful before we left and when we arrived.
Sarah’s organisation was great, from our taxi driver meeting us (and returning us to the airport) to where to eat on our first evening.
The apartment is just as it is described on the website. The beds and bedding were comfortable and the decor welcoming. We love to cook and the kitchen was well equipped.
The location is great - fat enough away from the city centre to be a bit quieter at night, but closes enough to get in and out to the shops and activities. Could not have been better!
All in all a great family getaway to a friendly and beautiful island full of sunshine and gracious people. We will return!
Nice well equipped spacey apartment in Funchal 15 minute walk to centre and shops. Supermarket and bars close by. Would recommended this as a wonderful place to stay.
