Ana was wonderful on the run up to our journey and maintained realy good communication with us , even sending photos of the local beach etc. Her son greeted us on arrival and was so welcoming and friendly , he even arrived back with soup for us as our flight was late in to the island. The accommodation it's self was very spacious for me and my fiancé. Host lives upstairs while you get your own space down stair. Worked ok for us although didn't realise on booking. :-) Lovely big living room, modern shower, nice garden space out the back. Quite a large number of ants which doesn't realy bother me but my fiancé didn't feel comfortable to use the outside space as there was a colony there. Can't leave food out etc in the house but again, can be expected in hot countries. The house was further out from the centre than we realised upon booking, we had a car and it's good that we did as I would say at least 30 min walk to centre and very steep paths - again, we should have checked this before booking - not realy Anas fault. Quite a noisy area between dogs barking (standard for most of the Island), and cars passing by the bedroom window - Ana had provided ear plugs which was a nice thought. My fiancé and I wanted to eat out and enjoy dinner and drinks in the centre , the last bus is at midnight so have to get home before that - we asked numerous taxi drivers to pick us up or take us home and none would take us to this area, no idea why but something to think about and remember if you plan on drinking with your meal. One taxi driver claimed it was too far out to collect us... it's a 10 minute drive??!! Not hosts fault. Lovey fluffy towers , great bathroom mirror and lighting , really good hair drier which for me is always a plus when on holiday. The house really can't be faulted not Ana, yes there was a few hiccups e.g. House been attached, ants, noise but a lot of this can be expected when booking somewhere out with the main touristy centre . This house is a bargain for what we paid. :-) thank you for everything you have been so kind

Thank you for your comment! It was a pleasure to have you here. The apartment is in a local community. The covered space is 100 square meters. At the back there is a barbecue with a small garden. After this space, there is another garden of 100 square meters, with fruit trees, banana trees, some vegetables and some flowers. This diversity is all biological. We do not use pesticides or harmful products. So it has ants, some spiders, bees, butterflies and earthworms. In this summer season, with our climate, we have more ants in the gardens. I am very careful not to invade the barbecue, so I tell the guests not to leave some food. These areas are extras in the accommodation: You can choose not to use. Regarding bus schedules, there are no overnight buses in any part of the island. In this locality we use the transport of taxis. Other previous guests have used taxis without any inconvenience. Sometimes they come and pick them up at night (4 o'clock in the morning) to take them to the airport. I do not know, what happened.  I communicated your problem to the taxi station. They will contact you (To clarify). Taxi drivers can not refuse to make this transport. There is another locality outside of Funchal: São Roque in Faial, which is distant.   I gave you the telephone number of the exchange with the address of the apartment, to show the taxi driver. Some may not speak English. Our transport on the island is not electric. They really make noise. I'm sorry for the inconvenience and thank so much you for your kindness.

Ana is a wonderful host, so welcoming. The flat was clean, comfortable and very huge for 3 people. When we arrived she explained everything about the island and its attractions and she gave us maps, brochures and even bus timetables. The house is located over an hill in the neighborhood called Sao Roque, the view was amazing from there. From the house you can reach the centre of Funchal by feet, it's about 35 minutes and I suggested it, cause in that way you can enjoy the vegetation and the flower of Madeira, which is very characteristic. Otherwise you can take the bus, the 42 or the 13 and in 15 minutes you'll get to center. What else can I say? I had a wonderful time in Madeira and I really suggest everybody to choose Ana :D

On arrival our host, Ana, was waiting at her gate and her warm and generous welcome was much appreciated. We arrived late and to have wine bread, ham and cheese and cake was wonderful. She showed us round explaining the basics and furnishing us with a folder of really useful information. We stayed for a month from mid February. A fan heater was provided. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable with a bedroom and an open plan lounge/diner with well equipped kitchenette. The shower is excellent with plenty of hot water, morning or evening, but be aware you do need to let the tap run for the hot to come through. The level of equipment was great for two. I am sure if we had needed anything else Ana would have provided it. Outside the parking was secure and relatively easy for our small car. The front yard was a suntrap in the afternoon and the beautiful rear garden was sunny and just a real pleasure to sit out in. There is also a covered barbeque area and laundry room with efficient washing machine Ana and her mature and friendly son presented us with festive Madeiran food on Shrove Tuesday and on two other occasions. Thanks! The local area offers a bar/café/bakery downhill 200m away, a really good Madeiran restaurant is 500m away that offers the Tuesday-Saturday special with a drink and coffee for 7€. Also 500m away there's an excellent little supermarket. This is an area away from the touristy Funchal, it has a village feel. It's well served by buses which are 1.95€ a trip but significantly cheaper if you get a card in town. Non-threatening barking dogs behind gates are a feature of the whole of Madeira. Be aware that everywhere is on a hill and mostly it seems uphill! A word of advice if you've come with a levada walk book like the Sunflower guide. Check for updates before you set out as conditions change - we found ourselves on a levada that was no longer recommended and proved very dangerous. Tourists die every year falling from these. If I was bringing a book again I would go for one that contains GPS starting points, we struggled to find the starting points of set walks, the Sunflower guide was particularly vague in many respects even for experienced walkers. We particularly recommend visits to the 3 local gardens: Monte Tropical, 'Blandys' and Funchal Botanical as well as local municipal gardens. Thanks to Ana and her son. We had a marvellous break and would wholeheartedly recommend this property.

Hello Mike Thank you very much for the comment about my "local accommodation" . Yes, some "levadas" in the mountains are dangerous and almost every year there are fatal accidents. With rain and fog, even worse. I'm glad you had fun and warned other tourists of the dangers in the mountains.   greetings Ana

Nice spacious apartment with a garage to park your (small) car. Local bakery and restaurant nearby and a few minutes drive to get to the supermarket / Monte / Funchal's old centre. Only small downside is the barking of dogs at night and a crowing rooster in the morning.

Thank you RiK for your comment. This space is located in a residential area, where many people Madeirense live. Really some people have dogs, other cats, other birds. This past summer, a neighbor bought a rooster. I live here 20 years ago, and I've never heard a cock crow so much from these sides. In the beginning, I even liked it, but he sang so much, that sometimes I get tired of him. Sometimes he gets hoarse, almost can not sing. It gives us a rest for 1 to 2 weeks. We talked to the owner about it. He said he was going to kill the rooster for Christmas. I have not heard the song sing! Either he's hoarse or he's gone to the pot! thanks

We really enjoyed our stay. Ana was most helpful and provided us with local information. There's a nice little outdoor kitchen where we had our breakfast and there's a lovely garden with a view to the sea. There's a little supermarket and a bakery within walking distance, also a decent restaurant and local bar. No tourists in evidence but the locals made us very welcome. Try the Poncha - it's a cocktail made with citrus fruit, honey and local rum - guaranteed to blow your head off. Good bus service into town. You can buy a 7 day ticket at the Pay Shop (same as our Pay Point Stores) next to the supermarket. Excellent value. If you're going for a fortnight take a passport photo to get a 2 week pass. (You have to buy this in town at the Horários do Funchal in the Anadia Shopping Centre. Take a trip on the 93 bus - better than Alton Towers. There is no shortage of good restaurants in Funchal at very reasonable prices - especially in the Old Town. The Botanical Gardens at Monte are a must see. We had a very restful and laid back holiday. At no time were we hassled or bothered but could text for help or advice if needed. Ana even arranged our transfers to and from the airport. If you want a swimming pool, all mod cons, set times for breakfast, MacDonalds, fellow Brits to socialise with, don't stay here. If you want to live among the local people, in a very nice residential area, with an insight into the Madeiran way of life, this is just the job. We recommend visiting the local bar on Sunday lunchtime. Good fun. For what we paid for this stay, we think it was a bargain. Useful tips for packing: there's a washing machine, iron and ironing board, clothes lines and pegs. We found hand wash, washing up liquid etc. Stuff that people had left behind had been left for use by the next guests. I think there was coffee and sugar. Ana had left a welcome dish with cake, biscuits, fruit, jam and butter. There was fresh orange juice and beer in the fridge. Very thoughtful. The only thing we had to buy was toilet paper (there was enough to be going on with!) You'll need to take a little jar of detergent if you don't want to buy a whole box/bottle when you get there.

Schon vor unserer Ankunft hat uns Ana viele wichtige Informationen zugeschickt und uns immer sehr schnell geantwortet. Trotz unserer späten Ankunft hat sie uns nachts in die Wohnung gelassen, wo wir schon Kuchen und Kekse für uns bereit standen. Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr willkommen gefühlt und sind begeistert, wie engagiert Ana sich um ihre Gäste kümmert. Die Wohnung ist sehr groß und sehr gut ausgestattet. Außerdem ist sie sehr liebevoll dekoriert, uns haben sogar Blumen erwartet. Ana hat uns während unseres Aufenthalts viele hilfreiche Tipps und Empfehlungen gegeben und hatte immer ein offenes Ohr für unsere Fragen. Gleichzeitig hatten wir viel Ruhe und Raum für uns, da die Wohnung einen eigenen Eingang hat. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt in der Wohnung und können einen Aufenthalt bei Ana nur weiterempfehlen - sie ist eine großartige Gastgeberin!
