“Everything you need plus Madeiran Hospitality”

We stayed 10 days in this apartment and overall we had a really great time in the apartment and travelling around Funchal and Madeira.

Pre-arrival; Carla (owner) was really helpful with the booking and gave us advice on how to get to the apartment including the use of the Aerobus (cheaper than taxi although we did not use due to timetable) which drops you off very near the apartment.

Arrival: Carla was waiting for us as we were dropped off by the taxi. After a brief tour of the apartment, she kindly offered to show us around the area in her car but we did not take up her offer as we were tired after the long trip and we had been to that part of Funchal in a previous cruise day stop. It is really worth mentioning that as a host, Carla was extremely thoughtful as the apartment had everything we needed for a 10 day stay. Toiletries, soap, detergents for the washing machine, salt, pepper, butter, olive oil were there to start you off. She even has fresh fruits from her garden ready for us!

Apartment: The key selling point for this vacation rental is the magnificent view! Located on the 11th floor, the balcony almost hangs over the ocean with an unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean and Funchal. It has an amazing view at night when the city is lit up or when the moon rises over the horizon. In the evening the ocean waves breaking over the shore lull you to sleep as a gentle sea breeze comes through the patio door. We had many meals and wine breaks on the balcony just admiring the views.

As we advanced into our vacation we realized how thoughtful the owner had been in setting up the minor details. We needed garbage bags - no problem, it was there! We found a big Supermarket nearby in the Forum shops and, yes, Carla had thought about it as a shopping bag was stored neatly in the cabinet. On another occasion, we bought Poncha ( a local sugar cane liquor ) and of course there were little shot glasses available for us to use over many enjoyable breaks on the veranda.

The location of the apartment is perfect - close to grocery stores, restaurants, bus stops (numbers 1 and 2 buses) take you right downtown. It is also steps from the ocean and promenade paths that gave us endless hours of wonderful strolls. The building in which this apartment is located, is aging a little and in need of some TLC but please don't let this deter you because the wonderful apartment will not disappoint.

To cap it all, Carla was gracious enough to let us check out late so we can take a cab to the airport from the apartment and it is so much appreciated as we could take a shower after our last morning exploring Funchal. And guess what, Carla came to see us off and gave us a sample of local sugarcane cookies which was just what we needed on the plane ride home. That is Madeiran/Funchal hospitality for you! What more can you ask for, except maybe a return trip to Oceanview Apartment! Thanks Carla for making our vacation special.
