Additional location information:
The Good Hope Apartments are located conveniently in a residential suburb that is in walking distance to the centre of Funchal. A bus service to the botanical gardens passes right in front of the property and can be used to go both to the esteemed gardens and to the centre of Funchal. There is a bakery with fresh bread and pastries as well as a minimarket with fresh fruit and vegetables within 200 metres of the Good Hope Apartments. At both ends, the town centre and at the botanical gardens, there are cable car systems that go as far as Monte on the upper reaches of the Funchal city limits. For the experienced tourist to Madeira the location is very convenient for vehicle access - it is close enough to the express way to travel to almost any point in Madeira quickly - including the airport, and since it is in a mostly residential area you avoid the intense traffic congestion around the major hotel hubs such as the Lido area on the west side of Funchal. Indeed, you do not even need a car hire to stay at this property. The bus service is regular, consistent and cheap. The taxi fare is cheap too - it is so close to the centre of Funchal that you might have a taxi driver or two show some disappointment in not having a bigger taxi fare for their service. Otherwise, just walk! If you prefer to eat out more and cater less at the apartment just head down the slope into the popular “Zona Velha” where excellent fish restaurants abound. There are restaurants that serve other fare too: chinese, pizzeria, japanese and even Italian risotto specialists.

The magnolia studio apartment is located on the ground floor of the main house. This unit faces the terrace, and leads directly out, to where comfortable garden furniture can be enjoyed to spend time or have a glass of wine outdoors. The shape and space of the apartment leads the visitor to feel they are living almost out in the garden. It has a very strong cottage meditteranean feel and style in terms of its atmosphere and environment. This unit is one of four on the property and each has its own theme. The Magnolia apartment has subtle hues of rose and beige. It enjoys glorious sunny afternoons and is cool inside during the day and warm during the night. Since the main house was built with very thick drywall masonry it has a very climate controlled atmosphere.
Have a look at the photos to get a better idea and feel of what the apartment is all about. It is possible to put a baby cot in the apartment. However, any older child or adult will not be possible. These apartments were developed precisely so as not to have more than two adults and a baby at most residing in them.
This apartment is suitable for the elderly and infirm as most of the passage from the entrance to the property and into the apartment is always on one level. The swimming pool is on a lower terraced level though. But a route is possible to the pool without having to climb or step down on any stairs.
*Please note that there is a separate communal laundry room where guests of any of the four apartments on the poperty can do their own clothes washing and ironing.
The property grows estrelicia flowers along with a few exotic fruit trees. The pitanga fruit tree is a must-try exotic fruit that is like a cross between a a clementine and a strawberry which is excellent in salads!
