Casa Pico Musica is located on the second (and last) floor of a building which stands in a quiet residential area of Funchal, next to the Pico Fort. The apartment has been recently renovated with an artistic sensibility and an eclectic style, which mix modern and traditional elements. It is small but well equipped. There you will find a comfortable bedroom, an atmospheric bathroom and a pratical kitchen. You'll found a good library too, with a focus on Madeira Island guides - definitely a plus. Anyway, the highlight of the apartment is without doubts its large veranda, where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Funchal bay. I spent most of my house-time there, being enchanted by the pictorial light of Madeira. I found the position of the house particularly strategical, since it stands close both to the city center (just 10 minutes walking) and to the autoroute (the VR1 is a few hundred meters away). The road to the city center is a bit steep, but - hey - if you plan to go to Madeira you must be prepared to that. The apartment has an autonomous entrance through a luxious garden. Last, but not least, the host is very discreet, but at the same time helpful and friendly. Overral, I was very happy of my stay. If you are an adventourous and romantic traveller, I would definitely recommend to you Casa Pico Musica.
The apartment is in an ideal location overlooking the town with a view of the harbour enabling guests to watch the cruise ships and other vessels sailing in and out. There are shops, cafes and a bus stop close by but we preferred to walk into town, which didn’t take long, The return trip is a bit steep in parts but we certainly needed the exercise - more excuse to eat the lovely cakes available in a wide choice of cafes.
The apartment is very well equipped - the best kitchen we have come across in a holiday let. We had everything we neeeded for a very comfortable stay.
Michael was able to collect us on arrival and is very generous with his time when required - otherwise he just leaves you to your privacy. He is very knowledgeable about places to visit, things to do etc. and the apartment has guide books and leaflets to help you to plan your trips. We would certainly book this apartment again.
We stayed at this marvellous accommodation during our visit of Madeira in May 2018.
Michael is a very friendly host and a very helpful person. The communication with him was very good and the welcome pack a nice surprise.
The apartment is very good equipped and the balcony room is really amazing.
Just like the photo's but then better ;-)
It’s lovely to sit in this room after a busy day with a Madeira wine and enjoy the spectacular view over Funchal.
Or having breakfast at this room with some fresh bread, bought three doors away in the street, for a good start of the day.
Funchal is a very nice place at 10-minutes walk away, with a lot of good restaurants.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Island of Madeira and especially the hiking trials along the levadas are spectacular.
If you are looking for a nice apartment nearby Funchal I definitely recommend this accommodation.
Oh….and we had some trouble with the water but Michael solved this problem immediately.
Thanks Michael and if we visit Madeira again, we know where to stay.
Kind regards and maybe we'll meet again,
Rick & Irma
Michael was a wonderful host, nice welcome package, nice view, a wonderful place to be and to star gor our walks.
We highly recommend this place!

The apartment was clean, well equipped and the welcome pack provided by Michael was perfect, including very nice bread and wine. For us, the location in a busy suburb was so much better than the tower block hotel area in western Funchal. There are good nearby shops and cafe and the view from the apartment of the Saturday night firework display is brilliant. Michael collected and took us to the airport, which made things very simple at very reasonable cost, he also took us out in his car for a day, when we experienced some amazing parts of Maderia we would never have otherwise found, his local knowledge and tips are a great bonus. So many thanks and we would definitely recommend a stay here to others.
