Our stay at the Apartment was almost the best Airbnb Trip we had. The Apartment is very cosy, clean and with a nice view to the ocean. We had everything we needed. Maria an Francisco were great hosts, welcomed us very friendly and helped us in every way. We definetly will come back! If you want to Visit Madeira, we can say for sure "Book it" :)

Where to start... The attic is just a wonderful hidden gem located in a quiet area in the outskirts of Funchal, near Câmara de Lobos. Although conveniently located with a nearby bus stop that offers services that take you to either downtown Funchal or towards the western part of the island, you will make the most of your stay if you rent a car, as you will be able to visit the different towns, forests, beaches, natural pools and all the wonders that are waiting for your in Madeira in a much more convenient way. The apartment is quite tastefully decorated and has enough room for up to 4 people. The terrace offers and amazing view of the Atlantic and is perfect for enjoying a romantic dinner while watching the sunset or having some healthy breakfast that will fill you up with that much needed energy before walking along the picturesque Levadas that surround the hills in the island. The views are absolutely breathtaking! Maria is a wonderful host. She is always there for you and will give you the best tips for anything you may ask her about. She is an expert in the area and a very pleasant lady to chat with. Thank you for being so nice. Moito obrigada. :) If you have never been in Madeira, do not hesitate it for a second! I can guarantee you that "the Pearl of the Atlantic" will not disappoint you at all. And you will definitely want to go back! I'm counting the days until my next visit...

Incredible how lovely Maria welcomed us! It was our first holiday with Airbnb and there were no wishes open. First Maria picked us up spontaneously after we missed our stop - thank you so much :-) she was such friendly to show us the neighborhood that we got the best orientation for our beginning at Villa Formosa. We had often a really nice conversation and the communication was to every time the best you can imagine! Maria is a helpful and lovely host with a warm smile to every time. We felt in a friendship with her and Francisco! We wish you all the best and are lucky to met you :-) thank you so much for everything - Mike&Stephan

This was the best airbnb experience I have ever had. Maria allowed us to check in late and had filled the fridge with food for breakfast in the morning. She came back the next day and spent time going through things to do in Madeira and the best ways to get around. After, she drove us into town so we could explore Funchal on our first day. Throughout the week, we contacted Maria on multiple occasions with questions and suggestions and she was more than happy to help us out. On our last day, Maria set up an airport transfer for us at a much lower price than a taxi would have been. Maria and Francesco were incedibly kind and welcoming to us and I would highly recommend this airbnb.

We really enjoyed the time in Madeira in the Formosa Studio apartment. Maria and Francisco are really nice people. We had a worm welcome from them and we used to speak a lot each other. Maria gave us some good suggestions about restaurants and local food. The property was clean and comfortable. Very very nice, with a great overlook of the sea which is amazing. We used to have breakfasts and some very romantic dinners out in the Terrace :) The house is close to Sao Martino which is a beautiful zone full of restaurants, bars and the Madeira Forum shopping center. It has been a pleasure staying there. Thank you Maria and Francisco

Response from Maria:
We regret this cancellation. However, we have made sure that we had these dates blocked in the calendar. When checking the calendar, all dates are available, which is strange. It's our first cancellation in these two years in airbnb :-(
