“Delightful hideaway” My wife and I found this delightful spot when requiring somewhere to stay for a week at short notice. How fortunate we were! What was described as a “log cabin” turned out to be a Scandinavian-style wooden cottage with delightful

“Spacious apartment in a quiet residential area” This was our first visit to Madeira and we were not disappointed. The apartment was large and comfortable. The balcony was huge and very private although the November weather did not allow us to make b

Thank you so much Susan for you review. I am very pleased that you liked the apartment. The views are indeed spectacular and was one of the main reasons we bought the apartment in 2000. It was bought as our future home in Madeira so is furnished as a home rather than just a holiday apartment.

I am distraught to read this review. I bought this apartment as my future home and have always tried to ensure it is maintained as a home.
The housekeeper is paid weekly to clean the apartment, whether it is occupied or not, so I am very cross to hear that she may not be doing her job properly. As I am not currently in Madeira I have initiated an immediate inspection, to ensure problems, if any, are identified and dealt with pronto.
I am genuinely sorry that Anneandian1953 felt the need to make this complaint, while I appreciate being advised of any problems, I would have preferred if the problems had been reported at the time, direct to me, so that they could have been dealt with immediately.
I placed the notice about a potential sale, some time ago, because I was toying with the prospect of selling Garajau, I should have removed the notice. Regardless, I have always strived to keep the apartment to the best standard possible and its cleanliness has always been a priority, which is why I pay the housekeeper weekly to clean.
Update 26/01/2018. Every piece of bedding has been washed/replaced in the last couple of days and although not visible at present, steps have been taken to deal with the ants. I now understand that ants have been a particular problem in last few months in Madeira. Apparently this is because of the unusually warm weather on the island the end of last year and into January.
I am genuinely sorry to hear that the apartment might not have been kept to the standard I expect. I have taken steps to ensure that this won’t happen again.
