Located on the sunny, dry, southern coast of Madeira, Garajau is situated, midway between the airport, and the capital, Funchal. Taxi journey time to both is just 12 minutes. Garajau has long been known to be one of Madeira’s high class residential areas and is named after the black-headed sea birds, terns, which nest in the cliffs. Just below the town is a 200m high headland with a fine 'miradouro' - a statue of Christ with outstretched arms, similar to the larger statues in Rio de Janeiro. This is a wonderful spot to watch the sun go down and it has great views west to the Bay of Funchal.
Leisure: The coastline here at Garajau is also a conservation area, and was one of Europe’s first underwater nature reserves, providing sanctuary for whales, dolphins and seals. The sea shore has now been updated and opened up with a new cable car to take visitors down on to the beach.
Scuba diving companies hire out equipment, give scuba diving lessons, and organise excursions.
Distances: Garajau is about 15 minutes by car from the airport.
Is reccomendable to use the car.

The apartement ist perfect situated in the center of Funchal- 1 minute to the market - 3 minutes to supermarket and bus stations. This is very helpful if you like to travel by bus. - Airport Bus is 5 minutes away! It is fully equipped (even a small heater - we needed it !) and very comfortable. The W-LAN is fast. Only negative point is (if you like it very quiet) that the neighbours are often loud and you can here the drums from the music school dowenstairs. If you are uesd to live in apartments - that is nothing uncommon. All in all a perfcet place to stay!
We enjoyed our stay at the flat in Funchal. It is a bit hilly from downtown 8 min away, but I guess it is only at the airport where it is flat for more than 200 meters at Madeira. The flat is great and lots of space. Also we enjoyed sitting at the balcony. Further to watch sunrise and sunset from the top of the building where there is awesome view over Funchal. Very nice cafes justt two minutes away with some of the best bread I ever have tasted. Welcome to Funchal! (-:
Very good standard in the flat. Fantastic view and spatious terrace. Ideal location right on the beach and strolls along the sea.
a lot of hazzle with the wifi Connection; no clear information about pass Word.
Great apartment, great location and we really enjoyed Funchal. An ideal base to explore Funchal an Madeira. Recommended all the way!! Thank you!
We had a wonderful stay in Funchal. The flat iswell-equipped, large enough, clean and comfortable with a terrasse that invites for sun-bathing.
It was quiet (apart from a dog in the surroundings which kept barking).
The flät is very central. It is near to the town centre and to other points of interest, for example Monte. Coming from the airport, it is bus stop 03 of the shuttle bus and from there, 3 minutes walk (steeply up the hill).
The procedure of taking over was well-organized.
We would be coming again!
Very helpful comms from the start, the transfers were organized for us. We found the apartment beautifully clean, modern with fantastic views to the sea and out to the mountains. Bus stop within 1minute walk with regular service, supermarket 10minute walk uphill, and a 20minute walk to central funchal. We didn't hire a car and in hindsight feel we made the right decision. Beautiful apartment and a wonderful city, we look forward to coming back!
Beautiful flat, amazing vew !
Beautiful, stylish apartment in absolute proximity to the center, the sea and the market hall. The whole apartment, including the bathrooms, were in like new condition. The washing machine was not very fresh, well. The balcony is large and has a nice view of the mountains and the gondolas of the cable car that runs past the house. The building (corridors etc.) is very neat. Down in the neighboring house there is a snack bar, gorgeous. After one week, an intermediate cleaning and linen change was performed. In short, we were extremely pleased!
Schöne, stilvoll eingerichtete Wohnung in absoluter Nähe zum Zentrum, Meer und der Markthalle. Die ganze Wohnung, auch die Bäder, waren in einem neuwertigen Zustand. Die Waschmaschine war nicht ganz frisch, na gut. Der Balkon ist groß und besitzt eine schöne Aussicht auf die Berge und die Gondeln der Seilbahn, die am Haus vorbei fährt. Das Gebäude (Flure etc.) ist sehr ordentlich. Unten im Nachbarhaus befindet sich eine Snack-Bar, herrlich. Nach einer Woche wurde eine Zwischenreinigung und Bettwäschewechsel durchgeführt. Kurzum, wir waren äußerst zufrieden!
It was a really beautiful place to stay. All beautifully decorated. Kitchen is fully equipped. Can you really only recommend.
Es war eine wirklich wunderschöne Unterkunft. Alles sehr schön eingerichtet. Küche ist vollständig ausgestattet. Kann man wirklich nur weiter empfehlen.
Peaceful corner was the perfect place for discovering of Funchal and Madeira
