Would definitely recommend staying at Isabel's. The accommodation was even better than I expected with a huge private pool and a gorgeous view over looking the beach and sea. A few minutes walk along the front to the bars and restaurants in Santa Cruz and a bus ride away from Funchal. Great location and great holiday, had the best time here.

Isabels place is one of the best spots to be in Madeira. You are directly in the proximity of the sea and if that is not enough, a pool is in the backyard! We had a great time travelling in Madeira and in the end of the day enjoing the view from the tarace. The kitchen is very well equipped and you can have lunch looking at the sea. Santa Cruz is in walking range of 5 min and you one can get a good cafe at the beach in Bar Alameda or get groceries at the mercado. Isabel and her husband are very kind and helpful, if you have issues, just ask them :-). We did not miss anything in the apartement. Definetely advisable place to be!!!!!! :-)

Isabel's accommodation was fabulous. It is 10 minutes from Santa Cruz airport so very easy access - made even better by Isabel who offered transfers to and from the airport and allowed us to check in as soon as our flight landed. The apartment was clean and tidy and had all the essential amenities. It also has a great pool and lovely views over the coastline and is a short walking distance from food shops, restaurants and a pharmacy. Santa Cruz is a small town, but Isabel's apartment is only a short walk from the bus stop. The buses go frequently to Funchal and run late at late and only take 30 mins. In Funchal there is plenty of restaurants and bars for evening entertainment. We also did a day trip jeep safari over the island - the company were happy to pick us up from Santa Cruz! Overall this was a lovely stay and Isabel was a fantastic host. She and her apartment come highly recommended!

Thanks Isabel for a lovely few days break. The pool and sun was exactly what I needed! Thanks for also picking and dropping me off at the airport.

The place is perfect for those who expect quiet place to relax. Close to ocean, within 5 min you are in Santa Cruz town, with some nice restaurants and cafes.

This is arguably one of the best Airbnbs in Madeira. Sea facing, with a pool and a garden full of lovely plants and flowers. We were not expecting it to be so nice. Isabel is very helpful and we had no hassles even when she manages her visitors remotely. House is beautiful. You can have relaxing time at pool. There are 2 bed rooms (average size) with separate bathrooms. Huge living room and a fully equipped kitchen is available as shared space. We were so disappointed to hear that Sasha (their Mastiff) died 3 weeks prior to our visit. Being dog lovers, we were looking forward to spending time with her. There was a lovely dog house for her in the backyard preserving her memories. You can see planes landing and taking off from the interestingly placed airport and don't worry it will not bother you as the frequency is not high. You can access promenade and walk to Santa Cruz city in 5 mins. There are few good restaurants (one of the top rated one on TripAdvisor) and super market also. This is 10mins from Airport and Isabel can arrange for that travel at 10Euro. Funchal is 20/25mins by car. We are not sure about public transport but Airobus from Airport takes 35mins to Funchal. Highlight: Pool, Sunrise, Sea View and Garden.
