The space

Located only a few walking minutes from the Old Town, Quinta Esperança, a traditional house with 4 self catering open plans, offers you a very quiet, calm and peaceful holidays.
ORCHID, is a new apartment (open plan) placed up on the top floor of the building. It is beautifully decorated, very private and enjoys a magnificent view from its balcony over the harbor and the whole city of Funchal.
It is totally equipped, and the high quality of finishings, offers to our guests a fantastic stay...
The open plan is well divided in sitting and dinning area, kitchinet , bathroom and balcony.
The king sized bed, 160x200, and the great quality of mattress, pillows, linen, bath and pool towels, offers a high quality in this apartment.
In the living area, you have a flat screen TV with 140 channels and a router for a fantastic and fast wireless signal.
The kitchinet is equipped with all the instruments you may need to prepare your meals.
Staying in Quinta Esperança, will offer you the chance to use the huge pool any time day or night, which is fantastic... the beautiful gardens all around the mainor house, are also for the use of our guests; the breathtaking terrace`s view, is also something unique which will offer some unforgettable moments.
The location is great, bus on the gate, but if you have your own car, plenty of parking place, for free, any time...
Nearby, we are happy to say we have the best bakery in Madeira, "Mariazinha", which you can´t miss, opened every day from 7am to 11pm... also a small but very fresh supermarket is there to provide you everything you may need...
last tip: the apartment "Orchid" is accessed only by some spiral exterior stairs, so you must be sure you are well fitted to get up there. We will help you with the luggage, no problem,,,,
Hope to see you soon, don´t think twice and book it now!!!

A truly lovely location with a fantastic view and large balcony. The studio apartment is very comfortable with a small kitchenette for preparing simple snacks. The spiral staircase is quite high but did not bother us. Helena made us very welcome and supplied us with a light welcome lunch a very nice touch and Carla baked us a cake later in the week. All in all we had a very nice week only occasionally spoiled by the neighbours barking dogs at night. The apartment is not serviced and had a lack of cloths, bin bags and cleaning materials but there is a small supermarket just a few minutes walk away that sells pretty much everything and if you need fresh towels you only have to ask and Carla brings them. Roberto showed us round the rest of the beautiful house that they in the process of restoring it is going to be wonderful when it is finished a credit to them both.

We have just returned from a delightful two weeks. We were received warmly with a freshly baked cake from Carla that became our breakfast feast for a few days (a treat that was repeated in our second week!). We felt privileged to stay in part of this old family house with such a beautiful garden, a lovely pool and an amazing view over the bay. We swam,walked and relaxed into the beauty of Madiera. Our accomadation was well appointed. Helena and Roberto have added a personal touch that gives a sense of luxury. They are enthusiastic about their home and country. We would love to return one day.

I spent 4 nights in Orchid flat, my comment is simple: if you want to wake up smelling the Madeira flowers, have an amazing view over the ocean, have Carla offering you one of the best cakes I have ever tasted, have a wonderful exotique garden only for you, have a beautiful swimming pool who waits for you, a great view over Funchal, a romantic dinner on a big terrasse having a great view over everything, don't hesitate any book Helena's appartment. It's the best place you can book in Funchal. It may seem a bit too much what I say, but it's just our feeling ! It was perfect!

We have just returned from a week staying in the Orchid apartment in Quinta Esperanca. Helena and Roberto have created a beautiful place to stay and they have a wonderful knack of making their guests feel right at home, they are so friendly and inclusive. The apartment is very well appointed and on the top floor affording spectacular views from the private terrace and perfect for viewing the sunsets. Everything from the ceiling downwards is well thought out (I loved the ceiling)! This apartment is one of five in the Quinta which makes for a lovely atmosphere, with all the guests getting along if wanting to even though each is very private. The pool area is within the well kept gardens and is available to use any time day or night. It is up a hill but this is to be expected on Madeira. There is a bus stop right outside the property gates which takes you directly into the centre of Funchal in a few minutes in one direction, and to the Botanical Gardens in the other for under 2 euros. Being close to the old town, you get the best selection of places to eat too if you don't want to always self cater. All in all, it was fabulous and we would definitely stay again if returning to Madeira

We had a fantastic stay at the Quinta - it is very conveniently located both for easy walks down into town or for access to the main road expressway. The local bakery ('Mariazinha') was also very nice - and almost unbelievably cheap! Helena and Roberto were very helpful and friendly - striking the right balance between being accessible but giving us space and privacy to enjoy our holiday in our own way. The views from the Quinta are simply stunning. Exactly what we were looking for. Also the room itself was very clean and well-appointed. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here - and will definitely consider returning ourselves in the future. Thanks Helena for your hospitality!

We stayed at this lovely apartment for 10 days in November 15. From the start the communication from Helena was excellent and the instructions we received on how to find the apartment were invaluable. We had a car but Helena can arrange airport pickup. Roberto was there to meet us with a friendly welcome. On arrival our hosts had provided some lovely fruit, bread, jams and a bottle of wine! beautifully laid out on the table. The apartment is clean, well provisioned with all the utensils etc. you need, towels and even bath-robes. There is a multitude of channels to cruise on the tv if that is your thing, we watched a couple of movies. The apartment is truly wonderful, bright an airy. The view is awesome and adds to the holiday. The Quinta is an historic house with gardens. It is behind gates and you have a private garden to share with other guests and a clean pool. Its private enough, but not isolated as there are other guests to chat to if you want. Good wifi, comfy furniture, great bed. The neighbourhood is very safe and there is free parking. Nearby are some pretty good restaurants, a mini-market and great bakery for a slice of typical madeiran life. A 10 min walk to old town and 15-20 to the centre. Definitely recommended, we will be back!

We stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks and had a great time. We especially enjoyed the view over Funchal, the cozy atmosphere and the pool. Helena and Roberto were great hosts. They always helped us out when we had questions – we even could enjoy fresh bananas from the garden. Bakery and supermarket are not far away – though you must consider the steep roads of Funchal ;).
