  • Hello,
    meine beste Freundin aus Moskau und ich, hatten 2 wunderbar erholsame Wochen in Elsas Apartment Funchal (Centre) verbracht!
    Elsa ist eine sehr nette, aufmerksame Vermieterin!
    Das Apartment ist liebevoll dekoriert, gemütlich, sauber und man hat absolüte Privatsfere.
    Da, es zentral liegt, konnten wir alles zu Fuss erreichen: den Supermarkt, die Busse für unsere viele tolle Wanderungen.
    Wir würden immer wieder gerne in diesem Apartment unser Madeiraurlaub verbringen!
    Liebe Grüsse, Nina, Natalia.

  • The apartment is bright, modern, and pretty, just as pictured, and in a great location in Funchal! Everything works reliably, the wireless internet connection is strong, and Elsa and her husband are responsive and helpful. Highly recommend! Quick tips: There are three bedrooms. If you have a car, you need to pay for parking close to the apartment (meter or garage). The apt is a bit hard to identify at first because there's not a street number on the building, so be sure you ask for an explicit description ahead of time.

  • All the family (3 kids) had very good time in this apartement, elegantly furnished. You quickly feel like home ! It is also a great location very near of the city center. Elsa and her husband are kind and helpful. A great stay and very happy memories for all of us.

  • This apartment was perfectly located and very practical for our family with three young kids. The place was gorgeous and nicely decorated, with two balconies and lots of room for storage and very comfortable beds. There was a large dining room table for a proper family meal and a separate table for breakfast with a modern kitchen. We were within easy walking distance of many amenities and Funchal highlights, with the sounds of the city during our evening Sangria. Daily trips to the cafe, limitless restaurants (or groceries) meant our vacation time was very well spent. Easy bus or short car rides to the Lido and other beaches were perfect.

    Elsa was very responsive and helpful; she fixed a WiFi issue within 12 hrs of the request while we were there, smiling the whole time and explaining some local details about Camacha or the festival in Monte. We took her advice and hit many, many other towns around Madeira with extended family living in the area, but it was always nice to come back to the apartment - our home away from home!

    Thank you for a great stay.
