Loved the apartment! Can only reiterate what other reviewers have said. A lot of thought & a terrific eye for detail have combined to provide a home from home.
Machico was a pleasant surprise & Kevin & Cidalia have provided more than enough information to quickly familiarize with the place.
It`s so easy to catch a bus from Machico to many of the levadas & walks. The island is so beautiful & the buses provide a very cheap sightseeing trip.
This was my first time in a private apartment but I will be doing it again. I suspect that it will be difficult to find another apartment & owners of this standard.
Friendly and vey helpful hosts / superb appartment with great décor / great location for the centre of Machico, shops, restaurants and bus station .Great location for the beautiful golden sand beach with shower / changing cabins and short walk to the nearby harbour. We would definitely return. Machico is a great place with a real local feel and its also quite pretty.

We arrived at the airport and were met by a local taxi arranged by Cidalia (property owner). On arrival at the apartment, Cidalia and her partner Kevin greeted us and showed us around the apartment. They were both very welcoming and introduced us to the island by telling us things to do, places to eat and some basic Portuguese to get us going. The apartment and surrounding area were beautiful and close enough to Funchal to mean that getting there was easy and inexpensive..
The apartment itself is modern, spacious and extremely comfortable with everything you would need during your stay. For us it very much felt like a home away from home. Cidalia and Kevin were wonderful hosts. We felt no pressures at all during our stay and any time we made enquiries about something, they couldn't have been more helpful. At the start of the holiday Kevin suggested a couple of walks to us and was kind enough to drive us to the start of each of the two we decided to do. During the journey and on arrival at the start of the walk Kevin made us aware of the points to look out for and turns to make.
With plenty of bars, café's and restaurants close by, we can't recommend Casa Che highly enough.
You won't be disappointed.

We arrived and Kevin greeted us at the airport and took us to the apartment, that was as good or even better than portrayed, We had a wonderful week exploring the area and enjoying the restaurants and cafes and a few bus rides to take in the fabulous countryside.
Cidalia and Kevin were so kind and willing to help with anything we needed including Cidalia taking us to the airport for our journey home.
Staying at Casa Sol Casa Ché made our vacation a wonderful and stress free one. Cidalia and Kevin were amazing hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. The apartment was so clean, perfectly located, well equipped and very comfortable. Madeira is extraordinarily beautiful and our 10k mountain hike guided by Kevin (who is extremely knowlegeable), allowed us to see and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of this little island. I would highly recommend staying in Machico vs Funchal for a number of reasons, especially if you enjoy the beach.
