A great place to stay close to Funchal centre
We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is spacious and very clean; there are good amenities, too. It is realistically a 10+ minute walk (generally down hill) into the centre - and uphill on the return. This didn't bother us - but if you don't like hills, this probably isn't the place for you!
The terrace is great and there is a lot of space. It was really nice to have a good kitchen, although a few additional utensils would have been helpful (scissors, an extra drying tea towel etc). However, the washing machine was brilliant, as were the supplied capsules for the machine.
Two words of warning: we had a car - the streets aren't too bad - but the parking at the property is tricky. There is another car left (I assume semi-permanently) in the driveway, meaning if you have a car like we did (a Renault Clio estate) it is TOUGH to park. I like to think I am pretty good - but this experience is a test of your driving/reversing abilities! If you have an option, request a small car (if I had known about the parking, I would have definitely requested this).
And... mosquitoes. We didn't think it would be an issue. There is a repellant plugged in but we had to buy another. We got very badly bitten - and I know that Madeira is sub-tropical but I really didn't think it would have been such an issue. Come prepared!
Enjoy your stay here - it's very quiet, with little noise in the neighbourhood, and some interesting (but not that interested in humans!) cats to chat to if that is your thing.
