Great return visit to Vila Teresinha, fully lived up to our memories from last year. And got one of balcony rooms as well, which was a real bonus. Try and ask if they are available when booking. Very friendly proprietor, full of useful info. We've booked again for next year..

This year we have been at Vila Teresinha for the sixth time. We really like the informal atmosphere, the rooms, and the breakfast served by Senhora Catarina. We always feel like staying at good friends. I have some mobility problems, but Senhor Agostinho helps us with carrying our bags up- and later downstairs (the guest rooms are on the third...

This guest house does sit on a rise at the foot of a hill but it isn't half central, 5 minutes and you're in town, it's so close to the shore we could hear P+O's sail away party on one of their ships leaving harbour! The rooms are a good size, basically furnished as you might expect from a guest...

I stayed for three nights, and would recommend this guest house as being friendly, clean, and very good value for money. It is within very easy walking distance of the centre of Funchal, and the owner is most helpful and welcoming. Breakfast is generous - bread, cheese, ham, eggs if you want them, fruit, fruit juice and tea or coffee,...

I felt there were pros and cons to the Vila Teresinha Guest House. Regarding the pros, the rooms were inexpensive, clean, a decent size, and the hotel is in walking distance to shops and restaurants, though not on the side of town that is closest to the more charming old town. Regarding the negatives: The wife of the man who...

I was travelling on my own and I had day tours and trips planned, therefore would be out for a good part of the day. The Teresinha guest house is an ideal accommodation to setup base. 10-12 mins walk to Av. Do Mar/Promenade. There is a big modern shopping Center along the way which has cafes and a good supermarket...

Friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful hosts. The room was a good standard for the price paid and the housekeeping was excellent. Good location, close to the centre of Funchal. It has a nice terrace, with views towards the port. Guests can use the shared fridge and microwave oven.
