We couldn't book our usual apartment, and as it was my husband's special birthday, he got to choose an alternative, and this apartment fits the bill, in more ways than one. The location is perfect, as we like to mix eating out and eating "at home". Pingo Doce is our favourite supermarket and really close to the apartment. We like to wake up in the mrning and watch the cruise ships arrive....the apartment gets the morning sun and has a perfect view of the marina. There are many many good restsurants withing a 15 minute walk of the apartment - another brilliant point and one of the reasons why we booked here - we have visited Funchal before and have a few favourite places within easy reach of this place. All the amenties in the apartment are first class, allowing for excellent eating in facilities. We loved staying in the apartment and would be very happy to book here again.

Thank you for your kind words about Petronella Marina Apartment!
From deciding to rent to the apartment to leaving at the end of the holiday was so simple. Petronella was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived ... and we were allowed early access which was great. She showed us around the apartment, explained how things worked and sent a video of the route to the bins in the garage. She gave great advice on local shops and eateries. The apartment was far better in reality than in the photos ....so much room, very bright and comfortable. The beds were so comfortable, the bed linen was white and crisp. The view from the balcony was amazing. Overlooking the harbour. We all hope to return! We had a wonderful holiday in the apartment.

Excellent position for town and bus services. Apartment is spacious and well equipped with great views from all areas. The balcony only has space for two which was enough for us. A visitor book would have been useful for local recommendations.

Perfect location

First time in Madeira after many recommendations from friends. Loved Funchal, the people, food and especially this apartment. Perfectly located to see all the sites of Funchal and we were warmly met by Petronella, who looked after us and made sure we were OK after Madeira's first earthquake for many years! Quite an experience. We will definitely return.

Excellent location!

Petronella Marina Apartment is walking distance to the city center, restaurants, and shopping. It is especially magical to be in Madeira during Christmas time, all of Funchal is decorated so beautiful. The view from the apartment is wonderful with cruise coming in and out everyday. The apartment is very clean and spacious. We had a wonderful stay and cannot wait to come back for another visit.

Lovely Quiet Apartment Right in the Centre

It might appear to be a contradiction but this is a quiet apartment overlooking the cruise terminal near all the facilities and restaurants in Funchal. Modern apartment.

Perfect accommodation in the centre of Funchal

We wanted to see the amazing Christmas lights in Funchal and decided to stay in the town instead of our usual holiday hotel choice and we couldn't have chosen better, We were met at the apartment and although we were early the apartment was ready for us and we couldn't have asked for more. Views over the marina to die for and a spacious 2 bed apartment just like the photos, spotlessly clean and although we didn't cook very well equipped if you wanted to. We will certainly book again

A wonderful place to stay in Funchal, Madeira
Very clean, updated and well furnished apartment in the central downtown area of Funchal, with a fabulous balcony and living room view over the harbor. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for the month of November and will consider coming back another time. The only thing to be aware of is that this is a busy area that can sometimes be noisy overnight, so light sleepers may have occasional issues unless you wear earplugs.

Sehr komfortable und zentral gelegene Wohnung

Wir haben fünf Wochen in dieser Wohnung verbracht. Die Wohnung ist sehr komfortabel eingerichtet und zentral gelegen. Die Wohnung ist kürzlich total renoviert worden und ist sehr gut gegen Lärm sowohl nach aussen wie auch nach innen isoliert. Die Besitzerin und ihre Schwester waren sehr hilfreich. Wenn wir nach Madeira zurückkommen, werden wir diese Wohnung wieder mieten.

When you have an apartment in the very centre of the town and close to the marina, some noise is inevitable. Thank you for your comment

Top Lage. Sehr sauber und ordentlich

Lage und Aussicht top. Zentrum und Hafen praktisch vor der Haustür, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Supermarkt, Bäcker) ebenso. Leider war kein Stellplatz für den Mietwagen vorhanden, wir haben unser Auto in der TG vom CR7-Hotel für 10€ für 24 Stunden abgestellt. Nachts sollte man geräuschunempfindlich sein (Verkehr, Nachtschwärmer). Geschlossene Fenster bieten hier leider keinen Vorteil gegenüber geöffneten. Der Empfang war sehr freundlich, Übernahme und Übergabe insgesamt völlig unkompliziert. Insbesondere Urlaubern ohne Auto können wir das Apartment sehr empfehlen.

Superb waterfront apartment in central Funchal

This is a fantastic modern apartment, recently decorated in a bright fresh style. Kitchen and bathroom are both superb and everything is spotlessly clean. The lounge and both bedrooms have views over the marina and we enjoyed breakfast on the balcony which caught the morning sun. Petronella met us on arrival and explained everything we needed to know. We would strongly recommend this apartment. The location is ideal, close by the marina, and the La Vie shopping centre ( with a large supermarket) is just a few minutes walk away. We used the Yellow Hop On Bus, and found it really convenient as the first bus stop of the circuit is just across the road at the Marina. Don't miss out on the wonderful custard tarts which are available for take away , just a few doors along at The Ritz!

The apartment is situated close to many facilities

The apartment is situated close to many facilities, the cable car ride is a must. We found eating out excellent especially the seafood restaurants. When staying in, there is a good pizza place just below the ground floor. Funchal is a friendly and very relaxed holiday destination.

Perfect place to stay within walking distance of the Old Town and views across the harbour

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment which was spotlessly clean and had great views across the harbour. We enjoyed watching the cruise ships coming and going and although there is some road noise it didn't disturb our sleep in a very comfortable bed. The apartment is within walking distance of Funchal's Old Town and the many restaurants that are available. It is also situated close to a lovely park and within walking distance to the Lido area. We would certainly stay again if we return to Funchal

Wonderful appartment - comfort, views, location

We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is spotless, spacious and well equipped. Having a well provisioned and full kitchen is a bonus. The views over the marina are fabulous and the location is perfect being close to shops, markets and most bus routes. No hesitation in recommending Petronella's place!

Beautiful Apartment, great location, terrific view
We (3 adults) thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful spacious & well maintained apartment with roomy balcony and terrific sea views of marina and port. Central location near to shops, restaurants etc & a beautiful garden.The owner Petronella was friendly & very helpful, she even came to see us off on the morning of our departure! Would highly recommend to friends & family. We did the West Island Tour which was v good & the Tobbogan Ride is a must, what a thrill!

Thank you taking the time to submit your review. Your comments are very much appreciated. Thank you.
We had a really fantastic stay in Madeira, the apartment was everything we could have asked for. Petronella was really helpful, nothing was too much trouble, even to sourcing the tv channel we needed to watch the Royal Wedding (Harry and Meghan) highlights - with a glass of Rosé wine (of course). The views from the apartment were lovely and relaxing. Madeira itself is the most beautiful island, the people are so..... nice and you can’t help but feel safe!! The apartment is smack bang in the centre of Funchal, it’s location is absolutely brilliant. There is loads to do here and it’s on your doorstep. We completed a free walking tour of Funchal, did a jeep day out, had afternoon tea at Reid’s Hotel and walked the Lavadas - absolutely the best time!! Stay here you won’t be disappointed!

Splendid Apartment!
Splendid apartment overlooking the Marina in Funchal. The views from the apartment were amazing! The apartment itself was comprehensively equipped with quality items and very comfortable. The approach from Rua Arriaga could not have been more convenient. Immediately after our return home we tried to rebook the apartment for next year and were very disappointed to find it had already been taken for the weeks we wanted.

Lovely apartment in an ideal position
Clean, smart and very well equipped apartment, which had everything we needed. Petronella was very nice and helpful, and advised about local shopping (big, reasonably-priced supermarket v nearby), etc. Great views from every room and the balcony. Plenty of entertainment watching the boats (reinforcing desire never to set foot on some enormous cruise ship...). We had good weather and a lovely week overall.

Perfect Apartment

We thought this apartment was exceptional in terms of size, view and location. It has been refurbished to a very high standard, The sea views are amazing and the location is very hard to beat. Only a short walk to a large supermarket and a flat walk ( rare in Madeira) to the centre of Funchal. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and would like to return in the future.

Wonderful Stay
Just spent a week in this newly refurbished apartment with wonderful views of the Promenade and Cruise ships. Saw 7. It was on the 6th Floor but has lifts. Very clean and well Maintained. Would go back again.
Jason Roberts   Feb 2018
Perfect choice for us.
We had a wonderful stay in Funchal staying in this clean, modern, very comfortable and well equipped apartment. We especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony - perfect for watching the comings and goings of the cruise ships in the marina below. The same fabulous view could be seen from the bedroom and lounge too! The accommodation is in a very convenient location being handy for the seafront, supermarket, shops, cafes and buses. The airport bus stops on the Avenida da Mar about 5 mins walk away - as do many other buses. The beautiful Santa Catarina park is acrosss the road and the old part of town is a short walk away. Petronella met us at the apartment and was helpful and contactable if we needed anything. We would stay at the apartment again if visiting Funchal in the future.

excellent apartment,great location with plenty of shops, restaurants and places of interest right on the doorstep.
The view from balcony over the harbour was spectacular, the apartment was very well equipped with top of the range appliances, modern kitchen and bathroom. Very spacious and we were very impressed with the top quality bedding and towels. We hired a car and managed to navigate the road system with its tunnels and winding mountainous roadways to see the surrounding beautiful scenery and to visit other towns around Funchal. Plenty of restaurants, cafes., bars and a large shopping area with a big supermarket within walking distance. The week went by so quickly, we wished we'd booked for longer, very enjoyable holiday, we loved Madeira and will definitely be back.

The apartment was in a central location; there was a large supermarket just a few minutes away, with restaurants and shops nearby. The apartment was very spacious with the main bedroom being enormous and a large living and kitchen area and a balcony overlooking the marina. It was exceedingly clean and modern and uncluttered - which I like! Petronella was delightful and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. She had provided a few essentials in the fridge, which was very welcomed. We would definitely stay here again. We were pleased that we took their offer of the airport transfers.

Appartement très fonctionnel et service accueillant
Appartement confortable avec belle terrasse plein Sud pour 3-4 personnes. Idéal pour l'apéro. Plein centre de funchal. A proximité immédiate des activités, commerces et transport. Très bon accueil (quelques courses offertes : toujours très appréciables lorsque l'on arrive) Nombreux services annexes (transfert, locations de véhicules, conseils). Propriétaire très disponible. Un petit bémol : Un peu de bruit certains soirs venant de la rue.
