“Wonderful apartment”
Reviewed 27 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Lovely and spacious apartment, with great facilities, and views to the Atlantic Ocean. Very well equipped kitchen with all the required utensils to prepare any meal. The apartment comprises of a double bedroom with two single beds, a huge Master bedroom with a on suite and direct access to one of the two balconies, another bathroom a fully functional kitchen and a comfortable lounge, accessing the other large balcony.
Although the apartment is a few miles from Funchal city centre, a taxi would cost you around €11.00, however as I was driving didn’t notice too much problems, again the apartment is stated on the promenade and is a nice walk, going through a extraordinary tunnel giving access to a nice restaurant, keep walking and you get to Forum Madeira and some other nice esplanades for some rest and a refreshing drink. No doubts that I will be back, so I do not have any hesitations to recommend it, last but no means least, a word for the owner, Jan Hansen, somewhat invisible but 10 minutes away from a call, he is a wonderful landlord, which gives you all the assistance as necessary.
THANKS Jan for the wonderful time

Hi again ! Thank you very much for your 4 star review. Let me just point out that the second bedroom have indeed a big window that you can open for fresh air, but no view yes, but you are only there to sleep, most people understands that. The rest of this fantastic apartment compensates for that for being one of the best apartments in Madeira. You are of course welcome back any time. Thanks again and kind regards

“Walking the plank!”
Reviewed 18 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a very spacious apartment with excellent bedroom, bathroom & wardrobe space. The kitchen is very well equipped & the apartment faces directly on to the beach / sea with 2 balconies to enjoy the sea-view from. This is apartment no. 408 which is on the 4th floor with 2 lifts functioning very efficiently. Jan is a very efficient & helpful owner - he was there to greet us & see us off & supplied a hairdryer on request. We found our fortnight really relaxing.
The only downside with the apartment might be for some, the location. It is sited at the start of the Formosa beach which is actually about 4 miles from the marina on the seafront in central Funchal so is about an hour's walk (which we did). Alternatively you can walk for about 20 minutes along an initially dilapidated wooden structure (it gets much better after the tunnel) to the Forum shopping centre & get a taxi to central Funchal for 7 euros (local bus is 4.4 euros for 2). Obviously a taxi from the apartment will be more expensive. So you need to allow for transport costs but you do get a seafront, very nice & quiet apartment. Hopefully the wooden structure will soon be replaced!
