I was made to fell totally welcome I requested an early check in and this was made possible The apartment was lovely and had great character It was very well appointed with everything you could have wanted. The location was perfect Just a few minutes from bars and restaurants, and close to the cable car to Monte.
Nelson made us feel very welcome. He collected us from the airport and any recommendations that he made were good.
The rooms were very spacious, each bedroom had an en suite bathroom and the house was excellent value.
The village of Camera dos Lobos nearby is on the sea and has some good bars and restaurants. We recommend to walk there but take a taxi home as it is quite a climb. There is a nice bar tucked round the side of the gates which, unfortunately, we didn't discover until our last night.
We loved the island, the Quinta, being on the south side,had good weather, plenty of sunshine but not so hot that we couldn't explore.
There is a lot to do on the island and we recommend a car for part of your stay although the bus service to the house is good.
Exactly as described and were very helpful, would stay again for sure.
Sehr gute Lage ruhig in einer Sackgasse gelegen, sehr nette Betreuung, Haus perfekt eingerichtet. Es gibt nichts zu verbessern.
Hytten var helt som forventet - og meget dejlig. Vi mødte aldrig Sandy, men det var ikke noget problem: vi havde fin kommunikation med ham over sms og Airbnb både før og under opholdet. Sandy svarede høfligt og hurtigt.
Vi havde lidt udfordringer med at finde ud af, hvad Wifi-netværket hed og hvad kodeordet var, men vi fik selv løst det (og lagde en seddel til de næste gæster).
The cottage was absolutely lovely with amazing views to the ocean. Though surrounded by other houses/holiday cottages it was very quiet and peaceful. Parking can be tricky if the neighbouring cottage has guests, we had to find alternative parking on the street down the hill. We didn't mind but it's a very steep hike uphill to get to the cottage so may not be for everyone. All in all we really enjoyed our holiday and would recommend staying in that lovely cottage.
We had a wonderful week on Madeira and one of the reasons for this was our great host Nelson de Freitas! He made us feel at home in his beautiful house from the very first moment. This started with the welcome at the Airport and went on until our goodbye early in the morning when he in fact got up early to help us arrange our luggage and say goodbye. It felt like saying goodbye to a friend. Thank you for that, Nelson!
Hôte accueillant et disponnible a Funchal pour récupérer les clefs. La maison est bien équipée et la terrasse un vrai plus pour les beaux jours. La mer est un peu bruyante dans la maison à marée haute mais on si on s'habitue. La maison est au centre d'un village encore autentique et loin des gros hotels. Prévoir une voiture pour les déplacements, des bonnes chaussures pour les randos sportives et une planche de surfs pour les pro de la glisse.
The location is very nice and genuine (not turistic at all) with breathtaking view, a nice garden, swimming pool and communal room. Close to Funchal, levadas, fishing villages, local restaurants. Our hosts, Therese and Ben, were very nice, helped us with visits, wine tasting, served a very nice breakfast (we stayed two weeks in Jan) - we couldn't ask for more. There are two beautiful superior rooms in an old style overlooking the bay. We stayed in a cottage with a small kitchen and also nice views from the terraces that belonged to the house. The cottage was ok but will be renovated this spring which was needed.
We can highly recommend the location, the place, the nice and helpful hosts, the garden and the pool. Note that on the location there are two cottages and two rooms (and more to come) and a shared swimmingpool, garden and communal room as this wasn't all clear on the website. So it is also perfect for a bigger party that can have their own rooms and one common area.
The host can also offer drive and pick up to and from levada walks. We did amazing walks. Had no idea the landscape is so green, lush and dramatic!
The only draw back in January was that even if the weather was nice and warm during the day, it gets cold during evenings and night and as there is no heating we were rather cold after sunset.
The written description of the apartments is accurate. The apartment is in an excellent location, close to all the interesting things in Funchal. Everything is really just a walking distance.
The reception service was very helpful and the place was clean. It was very useful that I could check out when I needed and I wasn't pressured to leave early in the morning. The airport bus service is just right outside the building, which was again very useful.
It was a pity that the pictures didn't show the type of apartment I received (I had two single beds instead of the double beds shown in the pictures and the sofa was old and dirty).
Other than this, I would recommend the host, Sandy. Her communications were quick and clear and everything was as stated. Would use again. Thank you.
