Helena was really good at replying quickly to any questions and helping us to make arrangements for transfer between airport and apartment. There was a wonderful welcome pack of different foods, fruit and a bottle of wine. The apartment is situated in a quiet residential area. Its a very comfortable well equipped apartment and the balcony is a great place to sit and relax as it is sunny from early morning. There is a good restaurant very close which you can also have a takeaway from. The bus stop is also very near to take you into Funchal and taxis were also easy to get and not expensive.

This is a well furnished and homely apartment with a wonderful roof terrace giving a view over Funchal and the sea beyond. The pool was also pleasant to relax in. We enjoyed the fact that it was in a quiet area, yet easily accessible to the centre by bus, taxi or car. There are also some bars, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance.The hosts Helena and Roberto gave nice personal touches such as a welcome pack and offered us homemade jam and cakes.

The studio was significantly more roomy than expected and the main balcony has just been redeveloped making it a large space to enjoy the wonderful view. A peaceful spot with a couple of nice restaurants nearby and an excellent friendly small bar down the hill on the right. Easy bus journey into town. Helena was very welcoming, providing treats on arrival, advice and some lovely homemade chocolate cake.

Our stay at Helena's and Roberto's place was amazing. They are so nice and caring, even brought us a valentines days gift...really cute :) There were local fruits and a bottle of wine to welcome us and they were always available in case we'd be in need of something. The apartment itself is located in a very quiet and peaceful part of funchal, very close to a bus stop and a mini market, so you got everything you need in close proximity. The view from the terrace is amazing, especially in the evening. 5/5 - we'd totally visit again Madeira is beautiful as well, by the way ;)

Pilar Studio was the perfect apartment for a self catering holiday. With Helena and Roberto providing everything you need, also thank you for the few groceries which was very kind of Helena and Roberto! The pool is a really nice touch, with me and my partner using it 5 out of the 7 days! Also, Helena gave us some advice on which buses to get to Funchal centre. The buses were frequent and just 500m from the apartment. Thank you to Helena and Roberto for the lovely apartment!

Dear Roberto and Helena, Thankyou for a lovely week in your apartment in Funchal. Whilst it was quite a long way up the hill from the centre of Funchal it was nice to get away and we found it very quiet and restful. Within a couple of days we had got the hang of the buses and bought our weekly giro ticket. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment offered all that we required. The balacony overlooking the town and the sea was wonderful. We very much appreciated the groceries and bottle of wine provided on our arrival. Robarto was there to meet us and explain how everything worked. We had to hunt for the Wifi password but eventually found it! We discovered that Helena was always at the end of the phone and was very helpful at the end of the holiday assisting us to cancel an excursion we had booked and allowing us to spend the last day in the apartment. We did a wonderful Levada walk and a tour of the north west of the island which was stunning. When we return again we will hire a car and explore further taking in more levada walks. Beautiful and friendly island and very helpful but not intrusive hosts. Thankyou again.

Helena and Roberto are very friendly, helpful and attentive hosts. We were met in a cordially manner and they had even taken the time to buy some local specialities, juice and fruits for us, so we did not have to shop right after our arrival. The description of the apartment is very loyal to the actual facts. A great place to stay with a fantastic view over Funchal and the mountains. Futhermore, they assisted us in arranging transfer and sightseeing on the island and advised on which buses to use, supermarkets in the area etc. We would very much like to return to this apartment.
