Wifi - fantastic excellent speed. The apartment spotlessly clean. Two hot plate rings and plenty of cooking utensils. Microwave and full fridge. Hairdryer and liquid soap. All you need to bring is yourself. Our worry was paying cash when we arrived but we needn't have worried because this seems normal for this island (a lot of places take cash only)....

The accommodation had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The maid kept it clean and tidy and we weren't disturbed by noise. There was free parking outside and free good Wi Fi. Only minor thing was the water temperature would fluctuate during a shower but was not a problem. 10 minute walk down hill to a large number of...

“Husband got a card and bottle of Madeira wine for his birthday. She must have got the date off the form he filled in. The washing up was done except for Sunday which we knew was her day off. The flowers looked lovely. There is a very steep hill to climb up coming back from the restaurants which helped burn...

Lovely place, easy to find, well laid out, lots of hot water, cleaned daily and linen changed every couple of days. Well located between the main hotel district and the old town15/20 minute walk to either. Yes it is up a couple of hills, but then this is Madeira. Small bar up the road opposite the stadium ( TauriGalo )...

We stayed in Vilas Maria for 6 days during the Christmas period. We absolutely loved our stay there! The apartments are equipped with kitchen which is hidden behind cupboard. The beds are comfy and apartment very neat and clean. The maid cleaned it on daily basis (except the Christmas day, of course). Once we left some dishes in the sink...

A return visit (hopefully not the last) to these clean and comfortable apartments. There's lots to do within a few miles: gardens, museums, levada walks, great restaurants. With free parking and good wifi this makes an ideal place to stay for a break of any length. I was very touched when a bottle of Madeira wine was give to me...

Nice little studio with good beds, kitchenette, own terrace with table and chairs. Calm surroundings. Next supermarket with bakery and best rolls we found on Madeira only ca. 300 m away. Very friendly and flexible owner. Very good WLAN-internet. It's not really negative but you have to know it: The old town is not really nearby. After strenous hiking tours...

Hosts were fantastic . It was my birthday during my stay so they left a birthday card & bottle of delicious Madeiran wine. The apartments were clean & had free internet / cable TV. The local bus 45 is 1 min from the front door which takes you to Funchal in 5 min (20 min walk; uphill on the way...

The clean and comfortable apartments are just the place for a stay in a quiet location in Funchal. The main road is only a couple of minutes away by car (but far enough not to be audible from the apartments) so getting to anywhere else on the island is very straightforward. There is adequate free parking - we parked right...

Went here with my partner for January for 5 nights. Loved these mini-apartments with their handy little kitchens that unfold from a cupboard. The only downside was a few ants, but that didn't really bother us - and the staff clean everything each day so not really an issue!
