    October 2017 - Reviewed at HomeAway

    Lovely Apartment - Convenient, clean and as nice as advertised. My husband and I stayed at the Funchal - Lido Charming Apartment for a week from October 12th. We arranged through the property management company a pick up at the airport and they were able to let us into the apartment and provide us with information for our stay, keys, etc. The apartment is just like the photos and very clean and well equipped. The rental includes linens, towels and all the items we needed in the kitchen. We had lots of hot water and good water pressure for showers and dishes. We spent time on the balcony which overlooks restaurants and the ocean and the sunsets were lovely. We hit a very warm week and the only issue we had was little circulation in the apartment - no air conditioning at night. There was a small fan in the apartment that we did use. We found the use of the tablet very helpful. We spent our days out and about and not having a car and never having been to the beautiful island of Madeira, it was easy to walk everywhere from the apartment, get groceries, find great restaurants including Sabor da India, Noit Escuva and Londres. We used the bus system, even to get up to Monte to see the views and the Toboggan runs. The apartment suited us just fine. It gave us a good home base from which to explore and I am sure we will be back to the island again. Thank you to Vera as well for the lovely welcome basket of local goodies - that was a really nice treat.“

    “ I really enjoyed my time in this very nice furnitured flat with nice ocean views from a large balcony. Vera handled each request very professional and fast. I even got a welcome pacakge with wine, beer and sweets when I arrived. Everything went perfect and I would always stay there again. The only reason why I rated "location" only with 3/5 is that Funchal is quite touristy and the flat is in the middle of the hotel street. So I myself would prefer a more quite sourrounding next time but if you really want to stay in Funchal - this is a cool place.“

    “ Lovely apartment in a perfect location about a 15 minute walk into town. Ideal for the Lido area with plenty of places for a drink or to eat. There is a lovely sea view from the balcony and the apartment is well equipped for cooking and evenings in. We cooked a couple of times during the week and the flat had everything we needed to do this. We would happily stay again :) Vera was very helpful with information before we arrived and as we arrived quite late on a Sunday, we were able to collect the keys at the airport which was really helpful. The flat is close to the airport bus route so we found getting there really easy too!“

    “ Lovely apartment very clean and with the owners own finishing touches to give it some character. We paid for a transfer to the apartment from the airport which was well worth while and a very friendly driver showed us up to the apartment. A welcome basket of drinks and traditional Madeira cake was a nice touch. The apartment is over a well stocked supermarket with a buffet style takeaway which seamed very popular so that the food looked freshly cooked and very tempting. There are plenty of good restaurants in the area some just across the road so there is no need to go into Funchal centre. The road outside the apartment is only one way so there is some traffic noise but not excessive. We had some noise from the corridor but shutting the bedroom door stops this. We enjoyed the walk along the sea front to the near by fishing village and into Funchal which is in easy walking distance and there's plenty of public transport if you don't want to walk .The Lido area of town is a good place to stay and so would recommend this apartment. “

    We had a great stay in Vera's Lido flat in Funchal. The flat, which looks lovely and sounds lovely on the listing, exceeded our expectations. It's a good size and had everything we needed. What we particularly liked was the attention to detail- not just towels for the flat provided but beach towels too, bbq on the balcony, a really useful guide to the local area and use of a telephone to make local calls if needed, to name a few things. Everything was covered. Great views from the balcony and well located. A reasonable walk from the centre of the city and old town but this was not a problem for us and in any case, you can always get a bus. We were warmly welcomed by Cecilia at the airport to pick up keys and it was a huge help to us that there was flexibility on our last day when we had a later flight. A great experience for our first time in Madeira. We would definitely use Funchal Charming Apartments again.

     Sehr Positiv - Ein intelligent und ausreichend eingerichtetes Appartement. - Die Küche ist funktional und genügt allen Ansprüchen von Selbstversorgern. - Mehrere deutsche Fernsehsender. - Perfekte Lage zum Strand, zu guten und preiswerten Lokalen und Bars, zu einem Supermarkt, der bis 22 Uhr geöffnet hat. - Fantastischer Meerblick. Sonne vom Aufgang bis zum Untergang. Wir hatten auf der Terrasse in der Sonne Frühstück und Abendessen. - Hervorragend, dass ein Parkplatz dabei ist, ansonsten hätte man echte Probleme. - Sehr angenehm und hygienisch, dass das Oberbett, welches über der "Zudeck-Decke" liegt, auch noch einmal bezogen ist. - Vielen Dank, liebe Vera, für den reichhaltigen Willkommen-Korb. Negativ - Man sollte hohe Toleranz gegenüber Lärm haben. Von etwa 7 bis 23 Uhr hat man Verkehrslärm. Von den Nachbarn bekommt wirklich man alles mit! “

     Dear Jurgen, If you do not mind since my German is not very good, I would prefer to comment in English. And first of all, I would like to to thank you very much for your nice words about the Lido Flat. You are so kind. In relation to there noise, despite the lido Flat is at 4th floor on a road (in fact, not on, but around than 10 meters away from the road) with just one way in one direction, sometimes, in fact, it is possible to hear a little bit of noise at the apartment, normally at peak hours (phone number hidden). Due to that, we have decided two months ago that in the middle of December (since we have a couple of days with no guests), to replace the old wood windows/doors frames to the balcony to new PVC wood color with double glass, thermal break frames which will enable our guests to feel more comfortable and with no noise at all. We hope that you may prove that in a future stay. We would be delighted to welcome you. Best wishes from Madeira. Vera “

    Fantastic Stay in Funchal in a Self Catered Apartment

    29 March 2015 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     We had a fantastic time at Funchal Charming Apartments (http://www.funchalcharmingapartments.co.uk/) and in Funchal. Both Vera (property owner) and Cecilia (property manager) were very helpful and catered to our each and every need. The apartment is tastefully decorated and very comfortable for a small family. We were 2 adults with a 2 year old toddler. Our son absolutely enjoyed the view of the Lido from the balcony and spent quite a bit of time there. The apartment is very close to the promenade and there are some really nice restaurants (walking distance under 2 minutes) which we frequented. We also cooked regularly in the apartment and we had no issues whatsoever. We would absolutely consider your apartment for future visits and would recommend the place to any of our friends planning a visit there wholeheartedly. “

    But, in addition, we were welcome with a tasty home made honey cake, delicious Madeira wine, a bottle of white wine, beers, juice, water...
    The flat is more than perfect and roomy for a couple. Huge, comfortable and really nice bedroom with a table and a chair overlooking the sea.
    It has a really beautiful living/dinnig room, with Cable TV, Ipad, Dock Station, DVD player, books and movies.
    But the top is the balcony. Relaxing chairs, table and chairs for 4, and more and more space. With fabulous sea views.
    All in the best location in town, at Lido, Estrada Monumental, but in a part of the street that there is no noise at all, since there is just a car (no buses alone) lane with irrelevant traffic.
    Near everything. Supermarket with take away food downstairs, plenty of bars and restaurants (we loved Paradise), beaches (the best is Clube Naval).

    Great Location

    16 November 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     The flat was in a great location with a lovely view of the sea from the balcony, which got the sun all day. The flat was very clean and had everything we needed (we asked for a fan as it was very hot at night and one was delivered the next day, which was much appreciated). There is a supermarket next door and some very good restaurants nearby. We particularly liked the Indian behind the apartments, fantastic food and service. Apart from one day of rain the weather was great. There are some lovely walks, though it took us a few days to find them (maybe more detailed directions could be added to your information book). We did a couple of excursions which we really enjoyed, particularly the volcanic caves. We loved Madeira and will definitely be returning in the future.  “

    Tastefully decorated, classy, confortable flat

    September 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     The Lido Flat is most beautifully and tastefully decorated, bright and cheerful, and with a wonderful sea view, in the popular hotel area of the Lido. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and all the well thought-out facilities make for an extremely comfortable stay. We loved returning “back home” to it in the evenings, after our many days out. All the positive things that other reviewers have said about it are absolutely true, so we won’t waste too much space repeating those things. It’s clear that the most important thing to the owner, Vera, is that you have a great holiday there. She goes out of her way to ensure that everything is just right. If there is anything you feel should perhaps be available in the flat and isn’t (rarely happens) you only have to drop her an email and it appears in your flat the next day! Terrific customer care. We had the unfortunate experience that the road in front of the flat was being re-built the week we were staying there (unbeknown to Vera, who had been assured by the council it would be finished before we arrived), and the diggers and other road-building equipment made a great deal of noise. Vera offered to try to find us accommodation elsewhere, and to completely refund what we’d paid for the Lido Flat, but there was simply no other flat available that looked as beautiful and was in such a good location, and so we declined and just tried to stay out of the flat during the day, when most of the roadworks were going on.  (Read more of this review here) “

    Perfect

    September 2014 - Reviewed at Holiday Lettings - Trip Advisor

    “ The Lido apartment has everything you could possibly want for a relaxing self catering holiday. It is perfectly situated with supermarket 2 minutes walk and plenty of cafes and restaurants on the doorstep. It is quiet, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There is a lovely living room, with good quality furnishings, the bedroom is huge and beds very comfortable and the large private balcony is perfect for sitting in the sun or relaxing in the evening. You can see the sea even lying in bed, it does not get better than that. The welcome pack is a lovely touch, very thoughtful and much appreciated, I would highly recommend this apartment, you will not find better and I can't wait to return. Very many thanks to the owner, Vera, for providing such a lovely place to stay. It is also worth booking private transfer as company very helpful, on time, pleasant and reliable. Perfect place for a relaxing holiday in a lovely area.

     What can I say?
    I loved my stay at the Lido Flat.
    Ideally located near sea, beaches and promenade. Lots of things to do besides swimming at sea and sunbathing: jogging, shopping, eating. Do not miss Doca do Cavacas on the rocks by the sea.
    Or just experience the flat. Bright. Clean. Cool. Smart. Confortable. Enjoy chatting, eating, drinking, sunbathing or just relaxing at the oversized balcony faced south with amazing views.
    We strongly recommend this wonderful apartment to everyone. “

    Much more than expected. We had nothing to complain about.

    8 June 2014 - Reviewed at Holiday Lettings – Trip Advisor

     We have just arrived from two weeks in Funchal, Madeira Island. We chose to stay in two apartments (a week in each one) of the same owner: Funchal Charming Apartments. The Lido Flat for swimming at the sea & sunbathing and the Old Town Flat to live like a local right in the middle of the Old Town.
    We spent a fantastic time at the Lido Flat. In the morning, we usually went to Club Tourism beach, 5 minutes away from the flat, with a large solarium (with adults and children swimming pools) at sea level. It was sunny and the sea water was warm. After lunch we used to walk on Strada Monumental. Sometimes, until the centre of Funchal (20/30 minutes). Or on the Lido Promenade which is a lovely path, most of time by the sea, that reaches the pretty/cosy fishermen small town of Câmara Lobos. At night, we went to several delicious nearby restaurants (Cipriani, Paradise and Il Basilico are our tips) and to Hole in one Bar for after dinner drinks.
    The Lido Flat was much more than expected. Located on the buzzy Strada Monumental, but silent (5th floor and just a few cars on a single lane one way traffic Strada Monumental - some works there to be finished in August as I was told, but no noise at all)). With a beautifully decorated bedroom and siting/dining room, with windows/door with windows overlooking the sea and open to a great balcony with splendid infinity sea views, with a table for 4, chairs for relaxing and much more. We had nothing to complain about.
    Last but not the least, Vera, please accept our thanks for allowing us to stay at your apartments, for the excellence service you provided us, including the delightful welcome pack in both apartments and the transfer from one to the other flat.
    We can hardly wait to come back. “

    The view from the balcony is to die for

    16 May 2014 - Reviewed at Holiday Lettings – Trip Advisor

     Had a fantastic time at Madeira two weeks ago.
    Upon arrival we received a welcome pack (the Madeira wine and the honey cake were delicious and the white wine was great) & were shown our apartment. The apartment was very clean & had more than everything we needed for a perfect stay.
    Although right a few steps away from several beaches and promenades, with lots of things going on, for more chilled out, you do not need to look elsewhere. The location of the apartment is quiet and peaceful. And the view from the balcony is to die for.
    It's style of decoration is eclectic/cool/casual/chic. A mixed of patterns and textures make the apartment really welcoming. As I love. When I started un-packing I felt like I was in my house!
    Our experience was perfect and we will be returning with our children soon! “

    Good Location and Nice Apartment

    09 May 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     The location of the apartment is in the nice touristic area of Funchal named Lido. I stayed there for a week and I believe I was the first person to rent the location as many of the appliances were still new (Iron/Ironing Board/Drying Rack/Pans). The view from the balcony is pleasant and you get a lot of sunlight to wake up to. The grocery store is right next door and a concrete/pebble beach within a short walking distance.
    It would have been nicer to have a double or queen bed rather than two single beds stuck together as it's a little frustrating having them split apart while you move around in your sleep. However, still comfortable. There was construction being done on the road outside during my stay, but it still wasn't very disturbing.
    Also, I'm assuming it's mostly due to me being there as the first guest, but it would have been good had things such as dish washing liquid/some detergent/salt&pepper available.
    The lobby entrance key was a little finicky at first and took me a while to get used to, so just be aware when you first use it and be patient. Other than the a little hiccup at the very end, Cecilia and Vera were helpful and kind throughout my stay. “

     Vera, we would like to thank you for the best holidays we had in the last years. We know that you are not the responsible for the perfect weather. It was really gorgeous: dry and no clouds. We also know that you are not the responsible for the delightful environment at Lido, with Monumental Street, Promenades, beaches, restaurants and, why not, Forum shopping centre! But, it is your “fault” that the flat is located at Lido where it is always sunny. And you certainly are the responsible for the delicious and very pleasing apartment where we stayed. The decoration is so delicate and subtle. Also floral and maritime. Friendly and warmly. Not rococo, not fussy. Chic. Not stuffy. Top of the tops: Great size wonderful balcony turned south. I could sit for hours there,day or night, enjoying the extraordinary and peaceful views. And an “extra”. At least for me. Since I hate cooking, I couldn’t finish without giving thanks to the supermarket at the ground floor with tasty and cheap takeaway food. Overall, it is a great place to live. We found our home away from home! “

    A Gem. Best Time ever at Funchal. Count on us.

    25 April 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     As Madeira lovers, we come back here (we are still in Madeira, now at Santo da Serra, the perfect base to enjoy the landscapes of Madeira through the “Levadas Walks” – thrilling trails with dramatic views) at least twice a year. In the past, in Funchal, we stayed at several hotels always at Lido/Promenade, but a couple of years ago we started staying at apartments.
    Lido/Promenade is, by far, for us, the best spot in Funchal. There is no better weather in Funchal. Even if in the city centre, sometimes, there are clouds, at Lido/Promenande, it is sunshine.
    It is also the best location in Funchal to walk. There is the spectacular Estrada Monumental towards the city centre (or towards Câmara de Lobos). And two promenades: Lido & Câmara de Lobos. By the sea. With entrances to the main beaches, restaurants & bars. 5 miles walking sometimes over the sea. Amidst spectacular sub-tropical gardens. Unforgettable.
    But this was our best time ever at Funchal.
    Lido Flat is a superb, fantastic and wonderful apartment. From the huge balcony overlooking the sea (also a perfect stretching place after walking!) to a completely equipped kitchenette, from a more than average size and dream bedroom to also an enjoyable living/dining room, both full of light and with sea views. Splendid decoration. (Read More of this review here) “

     I completely enjoyed my stay in this delightful apartment.
    I did my early jogging starting at the doorstep of the apartment, at Estrada Monumental, and I normally ran until the genuine fishermen pretty beauty small town of Câmara de Lobos then I came back through the promenade, smelling the sea a couple of meters away. 50 minutes of exercise and pleasure.
    When I arrived at the flat, I took the breakfast with my family at the balcony. The sea views were amazing.
    Then I relaxed for a while at the balcony, looking for tips about Madeira and Funchal at the existing apps of the Ipad of the flat.
    After that, since the weather was fantastic (I was told that Lido area has the best weather in Madeira), we (my wife and a child) enjoyed the beaches nearby. I loved very much Club Naval. Sun chairs at the level of the sea. Warm and transparent sea. Swimming pool for kids. (Read More of this review here) “

    Fantastic apartment. Hip & Cool. Best location

    April 2014 - Reviewed at Holiday Lettings – Trip Advisor

    We are a couple with two kids, from Madrid, living in Madeira, for professional reasons, during certain periods of the year. We have an apartment nearby (Lido is for us the nº1 area in Funchal: best weather, several fantastic beaches, lots of restaurants and bars, Estrada Monumental & Lido Promenade!) but we needed to stay away from our apartment during 3 days, that’s why we chose to stay at the Lido Flat.
    Wow! What a happy decision! What an apartment!
    It was, for sure, totally refurbished a couple of days ago (you may even smell a little bit of inks recently dried), but by someone with a sophisticated taste. Not as usual that you buy lots of stuff to put in places. No! There are some nice antiques, some chairs in traditional wickerwork (but painted with lovely colours), some brand new and confortable pieces of design furniture, in an exciting mix of styles. With colour modern paintings and others. Maritime and beach touches. Hip and cool, no doubt! Kitchen small but cozy with everything (brand new stuff!) you need to cook whatever you wish (although there are a bbc at the balcony and a supermarket at the 0 floor with tasty take away food for those, as myself, that does not like to cook).  (Read More of this review here)

    Lovely Apartment - Convenient, clean and as nice as advertised. My husband and I stayed at the Funchal - Lido Charming Apartment for a week from October 12th. We arranged through the property management company a pick up at the airport and they were able to let us into the apartment and provide us with information for our stay, keys, etc. The apartment is just like the photos and very clean and well equipped. The rental includes linens, towels and all the items we needed in the kitchen. We had lots of hot water and good water pressure for showers and dishes. We spent time on the balcony which overlooks restaurants and the ocean and the sunsets were lovely. We hit a very warm week and the only issue we had was little circulation in the apartment - no air conditioning at night. There was a small fan in the apartment that we did use. We found the use of the tablet very helpful. We spent our days out and about and not having a car and never having been to the beautiful island of Madeira, it was easy to walk everywhere from the apartment, get groceries, find great restaurants including Sabor da India, Noit Escuva and Londres. We used the bus system, even to get up to Monte to see the views and the Toboggan runs. The apartment suited us just fine. It gave us a good home base from which to explore and I am sure we will be back to the island again. Thank you to Vera as well for the lovely welcome basket of local goodies - that was a really nice treat.“

    “ Lovely apartment very clean and with the owners own finishing touches to give it some character. We paid for a transfer to the apartment from the airport which was well worth while and a very friendly driver showed us up to the apartment. A welcome basket of drinks and traditional Madeira cake was a nice touch. The apartment is over a well stocked supermarket with a buffet style takeaway which seamed very popular so that the food looked freshly cooked and very tempting. There are plenty of good restaurants in the area some just across the road so there is no need to go into Funchal centre. The road outside the apartment is only one way so there is some traffic noise but not excessive. We had some noise from the corridor but shutting the bedroom door stops this. We enjoyed the walk along the sea front to the near by fishing village and into Funchal which is in easy walking distance and there's plenty of public transport if you don't want to walk .The Lido area of town is a good place to stay and so would recommend this apartment. “

    We had a great stay in Vera's Lido flat in Funchal. The flat, which looks lovely and sounds lovely on the listing, exceeded our expectations. It's a good size and had everything we needed. What we particularly liked was the attention to detail- not just towels for the flat provided but beach towels too, bbq on the balcony, a really useful guide to the local area and use of a telephone to make local calls if needed, to name a few things. Everything was covered. Great views from the balcony and well located. A reasonable walk from the centre of the city and old town but this was not a problem for us and in any case, you can always get a bus. We were warmly welcomed by Cecilia at the airport to pick up keys and it was a huge help to us that there was flexibility on our last day when we had a later flight. A great experience for our first time in Madeira. We would definitely use Funchal Charming Apartments again.

     Dear Jurgen, If you do not mind since my German is not very good, I would prefer to comment in English. And first of all, I would like to to thank you very much for your nice words about the Lido Flat. You are so kind. In relation to there noise, despite the lido Flat is at 4th floor on a road (in fact, not on, but around than 10 meters away from the road) with just one way in one direction, sometimes, in fact, it is possible to hear a little bit of noise at the apartment, normally at peak hours (phone number hidden). Due to that, we have decided two months ago that in the middle of December (since we have a couple of days with no guests), to replace the old wood windows/doors frames to the balcony to new PVC wood color with double glass, thermal break frames which will enable our guests to feel more comfortable and with no noise at all. We hope that you may prove that in a future stay. We would be delighted to welcome you. Best wishes from Madeira. Vera “

    “ The Lido flat was everything we were looking for and equipped with everything we needed and was fantastically situated for bars, restaurants and supermarkets. The 'welcome basket' on arrival full of goodies was hugely appreciated. We are already talking about a return visit! Loved it!

     Bonjour,
    Nous avons très apprécié notre séjour à Funchall, ville superbe, ,nous avons fait de belles balades avec un guide magnifique d'une agence indiquée par l'Office du Tourisme. Quant au logement celui-ci est très fonctionnel, spacieux, très propre avec une bonne literie , un beau balcon avec une vue superbe sur la mer. Beaucoup de facilités pour les transports en commun. Il n'y a rien à redire et nous conseillons hautement ce logement. Gros plus pour ceux qui ne veulent pas cuisiner : il y a en- dessous de l'immeuble une moyenne surface qui fait des plats tous préparés et ceux-ci sont renouvelés tous les jours, en plus s'est très bon. “

    Nice and very convenient location

    April 2015 - Reviewed at HomeAway

    We were welcome at the Funchal Airport and taken to the Lido flat by a very friendly staff of A.Y.S. who gave us a lot of information about the surroundings, and all the necessary details to make our stay easy and pleasant. A lot of info as well on what to see and where to go.
    The flat was as expected and as described in the presentation. Cosy, nice furniture, even a barbecue on the terrace, small kitchen equipped for two. Beautiful view from the terrace. Very handy: the Ipad on the desk to get any info you might need.
    Bus stop very close to the flat and very convenient to reach Funchal center in less than 10 minutes. A lot of restaurants around, and a small supermarket at the ground floor.
    I would highly recommend the Indian restaurant " Sabores da India ", next to the building: one of the best I ever tried .
    It was a nice stay, and I will probably come again .

    Fantastic Stay in Funchal in a Self Catered Apartment

    29 March 2015 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     We had a fantastic time at Funchal Charming Apartments (http://www.funchalcharmingapartments.co.uk/) and in Funchal. Both Vera (property owner) and Cecilia (property manager) were very helpful and catered to our each and every need. The apartment is tastefully decorated and very comfortable for a small family. We were 2 adults with a 2 year old toddler. Our son absolutely enjoyed the view of the Lido from the balcony and spent quite a bit of time there. The apartment is very close to the promenade and there are some really nice restaurants (walking distance under 2 minutes) which we frequented. We also cooked regularly in the apartment and we had no issues whatsoever. We would absolutely consider your apartment for future visits and would recommend the place to any of our friends planning a visit there wholeheartedly. “

    A perfect place to stay whilst in Madeira

    8 March 2015 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     The Appartment is beautifully decorated, clean and has all the amenities you could possibly require whilst on holiday. The host took good care of us without being overwhelming, leaving us a lovely welcome pack and on hand should we require any guidance in a new count. Whilst Funchal is in easy walking distance, the Lido area is lovely, giving a different area to explore and enjoy. We would highly recommend this Appartment as a great base for anyone's holiday. “

    Lovely Gem

    20 November 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     First of all, the service was marvelous. From the initial contacts, the booking, tips and recommendations, Meet and Greet at the flat, assistance at the flat, to transfer to the airport. Thank you very Vera and Cecilia. You were so kind.
    But, in addition, we were welcome with a tasty home made honey cake, delicious Madeira wine, a bottle of white wine, beers, juice, water...
    The flat is more than perfect and roomy for a couple. Huge, comfortable and really nice bedroom with a table and a chair overlooking the sea.
    It has a really beautiful living/dinnig room, with Cable TV, Ipad, Dock Station, DVD player, books and movies.
    But the top is the balcony. Relaxing chairs, table and chairs for 4, and more and more space. With fabulous sea views.
    All in the best location in town, at Lido, Estrada Monumental, but in a part of the street that there is no noise at all, since there is just a car (no buses alone) lane with irrelevant traffic.
    Near everything. Supermarket with take away food downstairs, plenty of bars and restaurants (we loved Paradise), beaches (the best is Clube Naval).
    No doubt, we will come back with our kids, because in the living room there are 2 big sofa beds.  “

    Great Location

    16 November 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     The flat was in a great location with a lovely view of the sea from the balcony, which got the sun all day. The flat was very clean and had everything we needed (we asked for a fan as it was very hot at night and one was delivered the next day, which was much appreciated). There is a supermarket next door and some very good restaurants nearby. We particularly liked the Indian behind the apartments, fantastic food and service. Apart from one day of rain the weather was great. There are some lovely walks, though it took us a few days to find them (maybe more detailed directions could be added to your information book). We did a couple of excursions which we really enjoyed, particularly the volcanic caves. We loved Madeira and will definitely be returning in the future.  “

    Tastefully decorated, classy, confortable flat

    September 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     The Lido Flat is most beautifully and tastefully decorated, bright and cheerful, and with a wonderful sea view, in the popular hotel area of the Lido. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and all the well thought-out facilities make for an extremely comfortable stay. We loved returning “back home” to it in the evenings, after our many days out. All the positive things that other reviewers have said about it are absolutely true, so we won’t waste too much space repeating those things. It’s clear that the most important thing to the owner, Vera, is that you have a great holiday there. She goes out of her way to ensure that everything is just right. If there is anything you feel should perhaps be available in the flat and isn’t (rarely happens) you only have to drop her an email and it appears in your flat the next day! Terrific customer care. We had the unfortunate experience that the road in front of the flat was being re-built the week we were staying there (unbeknown to Vera, who had been assured by the council it would be finished before we arrived), and the diggers and other road-building equipment made a great deal of noise. Vera offered to try to find us accommodation elsewhere, and to completely refund what we’d paid for the Lido Flat, but there was simply no other flat available that looked as beautiful and was in such a good location, and so we declined and just tried to stay out of the flat during the day, when most of the roadworks were going on.  (Read more of this review here) “

    Perfect

    September 2014 - Reviewed at Holiday Lettings - Trip Advisor

    “ The Lido apartment has everything you could possibly want for a relaxing self catering holiday. It is perfectly situated with supermarket 2 minutes walk and plenty of cafes and restaurants on the doorstep. It is quiet, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There is a lovely living room, with good quality furnishings, the bedroom is huge and beds very comfortable and the large private balcony is perfect for sitting in the sun or relaxing in the evening. You can see the sea even lying in bed, it does not get better than that. The welcome pack is a lovely touch, very thoughtful and much appreciated, I would highly recommend this apartment, you will not find better and I can't wait to return. Very many thanks to the owner, Vera, for providing such a lovely place to stay. It is also worth booking private transfer as company very helpful, on time, pleasant and reliable. Perfect place for a relaxing holiday in a lovely area.

    I Loved the stay at the lido Flat

    25 May 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     What can I say?
    I loved my stay at the Lido Flat.
    Ideally located near sea, beaches and promenade. Lots of things to do besides swimming at sea and sunbathing: jogging, shopping, eating. Do not miss Doca do Cavacas on the rocks by the sea.
    Or just experience the flat. Bright. Clean. Cool. Smart. Confortable. Enjoy chatting, eating, drinking, sunbathing or just relaxing at the oversized balcony faced south with amazing views.
    We strongly recommend this wonderful apartment to everyone. “

    Much more than expected. We had nothing to complain about.

    8 June 2014 - Reviewed at Holiday Lettings – Trip Advisor

     We have just arrived from two weeks in Funchal, Madeira Island. We chose to stay in two apartments (a week in each one) of the same owner: Funchal Charming Apartments. The Lido Flat for swimming at the sea & sunbathing and the Old Town Flat to live like a local right in the middle of the Old Town.
    We spent a fantastic time at the Lido Flat. In the morning, we usually went to Club Tourism beach, 5 minutes away from the flat, with a large solarium (with adults and children swimming pools) at sea level. It was sunny and the sea water was warm. After lunch we used to walk on Strada Monumental. Sometimes, until the centre of Funchal (20/30 minutes). Or on the Lido Promenade which is a lovely path, most of time by the sea, that reaches the pretty/cosy fishermen small town of Câmara Lobos. At night, we went to several delicious nearby restaurants (Cipriani, Paradise and Il Basilico are our tips) and to Hole in one Bar for after dinner drinks.
    The Lido Flat was much more than expected. Located on the buzzy Strada Monumental, but silent (5th floor and just a few cars on a single lane one way traffic Strada Monumental - some works there to be finished in August as I was told, but no noise at all)). With a beautifully decorated bedroom and siting/dining room, with windows/door with windows overlooking the sea and open to a great balcony with splendid infinity sea views, with a table for 4, chairs for relaxing and much more. We had nothing to complain about.
    Last but not the least, Vera, please accept our thanks for allowing us to stay at your apartments, for the excellence service you provided us, including the delightful welcome pack in both apartments and the transfer from one to the other flat.
    We can hardly wait to come back. “

    The view from the balcony is to die for

    16 May 2014 - Reviewed at Holiday Lettings – Trip Advisor

     Had a fantastic time at Madeira two weeks ago.
    Upon arrival we received a welcome pack (the Madeira wine and the honey cake were delicious and the white wine was great) & were shown our apartment. The apartment was very clean & had more than everything we needed for a perfect stay.
    Although right a few steps away from several beaches and promenades, with lots of things going on, for more chilled out, you do not need to look elsewhere. The location of the apartment is quiet and peaceful. And the view from the balcony is to die for.
    It's style of decoration is eclectic/cool/casual/chic. A mixed of patterns and textures make the apartment really welcoming. As I love. When I started un-packing I felt like I was in my house!
    Our experience was perfect and we will be returning with our children soon! “

    Good Location and Nice Apartment

    09 May 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     The location of the apartment is in the nice touristic area of Funchal named Lido. I stayed there for a week and I believe I was the first person to rent the location as many of the appliances were still new (Iron/Ironing Board/Drying Rack/Pans). The view from the balcony is pleasant and you get a lot of sunlight to wake up to. The grocery store is right next door and a concrete/pebble beach within a short walking distance.
    It would have been nicer to have a double or queen bed rather than two single beds stuck together as it's a little frustrating having them split apart while you move around in your sleep. However, still comfortable. There was construction being done on the road outside during my stay, but it still wasn't very disturbing.
    Also, I'm assuming it's mostly due to me being there as the first guest, but it would have been good had things such as dish washing liquid/some detergent/salt&pepper available.
    The lobby entrance key was a little finicky at first and took me a while to get used to, so just be aware when you first use it and be patient. Other than the a little hiccup at the very end, Cecilia and Vera were helpful and kind throughout my stay. “

    We found our home away from home

     Vera, we would like to thank you for the best holidays we had in the last years. We know that you are not the responsible for the perfect weather. It was really gorgeous: dry and no clouds. We also know that you are not the responsible for the delightful environment at Lido, with Monumental Street, Promenades, beaches, restaurants and, why not, Forum shopping centre! But, it is your “fault” that the flat is located at Lido where it is always sunny. And you certainly are the responsible for the delicious and very pleasing apartment where we stayed. The decoration is so delicate and subtle. Also floral and maritime. Friendly and warmly. Not rococo, not fussy. Chic. Not stuffy. Top of the tops: Great size wonderful balcony turned south. I could sit for hours there,day or night, enjoying the extraordinary and peaceful views. And an “extra”. At least for me. Since I hate cooking, I couldn’t finish without giving thanks to the supermarket at the ground floor with tasty and cheap takeaway food. Overall, it is a great place to live. We found our home away from home! “

    A Gem. Best Time ever at Funchal. Count on us.

    25 April 2014 - Reviewed at HomeAway

     As Madeira lovers, we come back here (we are still in Madeira, now at Santo da Serra, the perfect base to enjoy the landscapes of Madeira through the “Levadas Walks” – thrilling trails with dramatic views) at least twice a year. In the past, in Funchal, we stayed at several hotels always at Lido/Promenade, but a couple of years ago we started staying at apartments.
    Lido/Promenade is, by far, for us, the best spot in Funchal. There is no better weather in Funchal. Even if in the city centre, sometimes, there are clouds, at Lido/Promenande, it is sunshine.
    It is also the best location in Funchal to walk. There is the spectacular Estrada Monumental towards the city centre (or towards Câmara de Lobos). And two promenades: Lido & Câmara de Lobos. By the sea. With entrances to the main beaches, restaurants & bars. 5 miles walking sometimes over the sea. Amidst spectacular sub-tropical gardens. Unforgettable.
    But this was our best time ever at Funchal.
    Lido Flat is a superb, fantastic and wonderful apartment. From the huge balcony overlooking the sea (also a perfect stretching place after walking!) to a completely equipped kitchenette, from a more than average size and dream bedroom to also an enjoyable living/dining room, both full of light and with sea views. Splendid decoration. (Read More of this review here) “

    Lovely Flat. Fantastic location. We will come back.

     I completely enjoyed my stay in this delightful apartment.
    I did my early jogging starting at the doorstep of the apartment, at Estrada Monumental, and I normally ran until the genuine fishermen pretty beauty small town of Câmara de Lobos then I came back through the promenade, smelling the sea a couple of meters away. 50 minutes of exercise and pleasure.
    When I arrived at the flat, I took the breakfast with my family at the balcony. The sea views were amazing.
    Then I relaxed for a while at the balcony, looking for tips about Madeira and Funchal at the existing apps of the Ipad of the flat.
    After that, since the weather was fantastic (I was told that Lido area has the best weather in Madeira), we (my wife and a child) enjoyed the beaches nearby. I loved very much Club Naval. Sun chairs at the level of the sea. Warm and transparent sea. Swimming pool for kids. (Read More of this review here) “

    Fantastic apartment. Hip & Cool. Best location

    April 2014 - Reviewed at Holiday Lettings – Trip Advisor

    We are a couple with two kids, from Madrid, living in Madeira, for professional reasons, during certain periods of the year. We have an apartment nearby (Lido is for us the nº1 area in Funchal: best weather, several fantastic beaches, lots of restaurants and bars, Estrada Monumental & Lido Promenade!) but we needed to stay away from our apartment during 3 days, that’s why we chose to stay at the Lido Flat.
    Wow! What a happy decision! What an apartment!
    It was, for sure, totally refurbished a couple of days ago (you may even smell a little bit of inks recently dried), but by someone with a sophisticated taste. Not as usual that you buy lots of stuff to put in places. No! There are some nice antiques, some chairs in traditional wickerwork (but painted with lovely colours), some brand new and confortable pieces of design furniture, in an exciting mix of styles. With colour modern paintings and others. Maritime and beach touches. Hip and cool, no doubt! Kitchen small but cozy with everything (brand new stuff!) you need to cook whatever you wish (although there are a bbc at the balcony and a supermarket at the 0 floor with tasty take away food for those, as myself, that does not like to cook).  (Read More of this review here)
