“Casa Che - fabulous! Exactly as described - but even better!!!”

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful 9 nights staying in Casa Che.
Cidalia, the owner, was extremely helpful during the booking process, answering all my questions and sending the paperwork quickly and efficiently.
She offered us taxi transport from the airport and we were met by Carlos and whisked to the apartment where Cidalia welcomed us with a bottle of chilled rose wine and a light lunch. She showed us around the apartment and advised us on how to operate all the equipment. She also advised on the location of the local supermarkets and recommended some excellent restaurants. We were thrilled by all the little 'extras' she had so thoughfully included in the rental.
Throughout our stay Cidalia and Kevin were very kind and helpful and made us feel most welcome.
The apartment is very comfortably furnished with distinctive artwork on the walls and beautiful displays of Murano glass, interesting antique plates and azulejios. There are many books of local interest and a library of books and games should you get a rainy day! There is also an ipod with a docking station and a good variety of TV channels.
The kitchen is light and airy and beautifully equiped with everything you could possibly need. There are even beach towels and beach mats for guests use.
The location is excellent being only one block back from the sea and very near a bus stop.
We never needed to use the bus because Carlos, the taxi driver, turned out to be an absolute godsend. He was extremely kind, helpful and reliable. His charges were very reasonable. We used his transport to take us to take us to the local restaurant, to Funchal and to do a tour of the central and eastern part of Madeira, not forgetting our return trip to the airport.
Machico is a lovely place with a beautiful golden sandy beach and an interesting harbour. There are many good walking areas nearby. Sao Laurenco peninsula being particularly spectacular!
We just loved staying in Casa Che and meeting Cidalia, Kevin and Carlos. We hope to return next year. Thank you all for everything! Jean & Robbie

“Wonderfull stay”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Appartments are great! Comfortable with everything you need. In reall life they are even better than on photo. Very close to the ocean. Cidalia (owner) is very welcome and kind person. She helped us a lot to organize our time on Madeira. Machico is wonderfull place, calm and nice. Very convinient for the stay on Madeira, with good connection to all places of interest. Next time on we will stay only in Casa Che!

“Casa Che - Stylish, yet homely and welcoming!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

What an incredible experience.
The owners are hospitable, friendly and accommodating, and always willing to go the extra mile to make your stay more enjoyable.
Cidalia and Kevin, thank you for everything. Your apartment is fantastic!
The photos show the apartment exactly as it is - no misleading!
Close to the beach, local shops and public transport.
Quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to travel to Funchal for a bit of noise, if needed.
I highly recommend this holiday apartment to anyone wanting to experience the island from Machico.
Thanks again guys! We'll be back... P,J and the girls in Cape Town

“Perfect accomodation, location and hosts”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We couldn't of stayed at a better place on the island of madeira. Machico is a beautiful quaint town. The apartment is close to the sandy beach and close to shops and restaurants. THe apartment is modern and beautifully decorated. Cidalia and Kevin, make you feel right at home and were such gracious hosts. We had such a wonderful holiday. It is the perfect place if you have children. We hope to be back.

“Location...location...perfect host!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We are very glad we chose Machico as our base to stay in Madeira. And we are delighted to have stayed at Casa Che. We felt at home the minute we stepped in the door. It feels like your home...not a rental. Everything is first class...the furnishings...appliances..all clean and new looking. The location is perfect! Within minutes to the beach..and the stores and restaurants are right around the corner. As other reviewers have mentioned..Cidalia is the perfect host. She gives you a cell phone so you can reach her ASAP if needed. She checked in with us several times to make sure everything was perfect...and of course it was. We have rented many apartments in our travels..and would rate this right at the top.

We have just returend from an absolutely wonderful stay at Casa Che (August 2012) and cannot praise the apartment, or our hosts, highly enough.
The apartment is beautifully maintained, modern, spotlessly clean and full of every appliance any guest could want. The fixtures and fittings are all extremely high spec and the apartment comes with many little unexpected 'extras' not normally found on 'self catering' holidays. Shower gels, soaps, toweling robes, hairdryer, shower caps, beach towels and even sun tan lotion were provided in the bathroom, and washing liquid, various teas and coffeees (including fresh coffee) milk, juice, fruit, as well as an array of cooking spices, in the kitchen.
Casa Che is also perfectly situated within Machico with good quality local restaurants, as well as the pretty sandy beach, being less than 5 mins walk away, yet it is still quiet and relaxing.
The owners of the apartment are also the perfect hosts.
We arrived at Machico in the afternoon, to find Kevin waiting for us. He then took us up to the aparmtent, where he had provided a tray of 'nibbles' including hand made dips as well as a charming little welcome painting refelcting the Portugues national emblem! We immediately felt relaxed and welcomed and this was constantly reinfoirced by Kevin who assured us that shoud we want anythng during our stay we shouldn't hesitate to be in contact with him. He even provided a pre-paid mobile with his number on it so we could reach him whenever needed.
In fact even before we left the country our hosts were the eptimy of thoughtfulness and organisation. They enquired which colour wine we preferred so they coud leave us a bottle in our welcome pack, as well as making local enquiries about diving schools for us, so we knew exactly where to go and who to contact in order to dive staright away on arrival. They also provided a list of recommemdend restuarants, supermarkets and a taxi driver to ensure that our stay was successful.
We cannot recommend staying at Casa Che highly enough and would most certainly visit again should the opportunity arise.
