Our group of four recently visited Madeira. Our early planning began with making contact with MadeiraDirect to arrange our accommodation requirements during our stay on the island. All correspondence over the number of months up to just prior to our departure from Canada was always prompt, informative and at all times conducted in a very professional manner.
We could not be more pleased with our accommodations and the service provided. We have already spread the word to our friends and family MadeiraDirect will be there for them when they plan to visit the stunningly beautiful island of Madeira.

Wonderfully located and modern apartment.
Views amazin from private balcony [ as 4th floor ]
Very quiet as well set back from main road.
Pool and private garden excellent.
Wonderful restaurants nearby and one next door called Atlantico.
A short walk to the public Lido, with lots of space and very large pool with access into sea [ lifeguards present ]
Also has a restaurant at the front of the block at lower ground level to get food and drink during the day if you stay around the pool.

Excellent, luxurious apartment-best we have ever stayed in. All appliances were brand new-there was even an electric orange squeezer!! Comfy beds and a great lounge area. We were there over New Year and watched the amazing fireworks from the apartment balcony , which has great views over Funchal. It took us a few minutes to work out how to open the gate to the complex the first time when we walked the 12 minutes down to the harbour!! Plenty good restaurants and bars in easy reach, and handy for the numerous local buses.Worth while walking to Camara de Lobos along the coast path for a glass of Poncha.or just catch a bus.

My experience with Peter and all the staff at Madeira Direct was better than expected, and I would commend them to anybody wanting a holiday let on the island. There was a small delay attending to one call-out, but this must be peak season for them.

The communication was very good and if we had Problems we Directly got help. The property is near the central of Funchal and you dont need a Car to Explore the City.
All in all a very nice Service and a Nice Holiday.

The apartment is in the perfect location. Complete amenities with private backyard area with lounges and table and chairs along with large jacuzzi. The pool area for the apartment building is gorgeous and no one is ever there, so it feels like a private area as well.
Mr. Marsland is engaged and clearly wants guests to be comfortable. He assists with airport transfers and any questions.Please don't book too many days. so that there will be availability when I want to return :-)).

A well equipped and spacious apartment for 4 people.
The whole process from booking to the time of our departure was handled smoothly and efficiently.
The booking was easy, they even arranged a taxi on our arrival and there was some one there to meet and great us. The person who met us was friendly and provided the right amount of information and advise. The main question should be: would you use them again? And the answer would be a definite “yes “.

Amazing apartment, friendly people and most of all CLEAN, but I must say the island of Madeira is a very clean place to be compared to other holidays in other islands I have been to.
Spotless, washed island! Makes you feel good to be in these surroundings.

Communication is excellent, the choice of holiday lets is very good, and properties are immaculate. properties that we have rented are different and for us, suit our holiday requirements to a tee
Review by ChristineC Fishy1 year ago
A beautiful apartment in an ideal location overlooking the sea. The apartment has been furnished and renovated to a high standard. We were met at the apartment by a helpful representative and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment has everything you would need for a self catering holiday.
If there is any fault it is with information on how to operate various appliances. All the booklets are there but it involves a long search to learn basic operating. We could not find any instructions in English for basic operation of the dishwasher. However we ate out most of the time so we had little use for it.

A great apartment with stunning views. All mod cons and the welcome pack was superb. A taxi was there to collect us and return us to the airport- very simple! There were 4 of us- plenty of room to spread out. Defo recommend!

We have stayed in a few apartments managed by this company and have mostly found them to be very agreeable. Communication is good in both Portuguese and English, with Rita being particularly helpful.
Review by Weebrie1 year ago
My wife and I have now stayed on four occasions at the Villa Azul in Gaula, Madeira, and must say that it is an excellent location for your stay on the beautiful island of Madeira.
This two bedroomed villa is in excellent condition with all of the usual facilities available, and the view from the many balconies is quite superb.
The gardens are well laid out, and there is plenty of space to just sit and take in the stunning views.
There are several good supermarkets within a fifteen minute drive from the villa, and the Airport is only a five minute drive away.
Peter (who runs Madeira Direct) looks after the villa on behalf of the UK owners, and can easily be contacted by telephone or e-mail, and Maria the lady who looks after the domestic side of the villa lives locally and is very helpful to first time visitors.
We would certainly recommend this beautiful villa for your first, or next visit to Madeira.

Review by Abdulmjeed1 year ago
My wife and I spent a week in December on our 50th Anniversary. We both had a great time.
Peter was very helpful, he showed us around the well equipped villa, which had every thing you needed. He also gave us the telephone number of a taxi driver whose wife was the cleaner of the villa. His name was Joun I am sure that is the wrong spelling but I must say he was marvellous, if you ever stay in Gaul please use him.
Funchal was very magical, with all the Christmas lights, and street entertainment. We found the restaurants really good.
Although the island is quite small, there is a lot to see, and wish we were able to spend more than a week there.
We recommend Madeira Direct to any one considering a holiday in Madeira. You will certainly not be disappointed.
Many Thanks Richard & Joy Coppin

Peter was very helpful both before and during our stay in Funchal. The apartment is in a good location and has easy access to the motorway for travelling around the island.
The apartment itself, Vila Formosa suited us perfectly. It was in excellent condition and is very well equipped with everything you need. The owner is also very helpful and provides an excellent guide to the apartment and surrounding area. It includes a very good guide to local restaurants.
We would have no hesitation in staying here again and recommending it to our friends wishing to visit Madeira.
