Located on the sunny, dry, southern coast of Madeira, Garajau is situated, midway between the airport, and the capital, Funchal. Taxi journey time to both is just 12 minutes. Garajau has long been known to be one of Madeira’s high class residential areas and is named after the black-headed sea birds, terns, which nest in the cliffs. Just below the town is a 200m high headland with a fine 'miradouro' - a statue of Christ with outstretched arms, similar to the larger statues in Rio de Janeiro. This is a wonderful spot to watch the sun go down and it has great views west to the Bay of Funchal.
Leisure: The coastline here at Garajau is also a conservation area, and was one of Europe’s first underwater nature reserves, providing sanctuary for whales, dolphins and seals. The sea shore has now been updated and opened up with a new cable car to take visitors down on to the beach.
Scuba diving companies hire out equipment, give scuba diving lessons, and organise excursions.
Distances: Garajau is about 15 minutes by car from the airport.
Is reccomendable to use the car.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Look, this is a really nice apartment. It's just the size for two, with everything you need. There is a braethtaking wiev over the Atlantic, kitchen is small but well equieped, dishwasher, microwave, coffemaschine etc. and the bedroom has a super bed. It is located right in the center of the tourist part of Funchal with all you can wish of coffee shops, supermarkets and a lot of restaurants. There is a litle noise from Estarda Monumental, as to expect in the middle of a city but all in all it was a fantastic stay.
Cozy, clean cottage with a private terrace, barbecue and parking, located right by the ocean!
We were all very, very, very much!
Communication with the host quickly and easily.
Ideally located to access anywhere in Funchal within a few minutes walk, even the aerobus, warning for anyone not fit or unsteady on there feet the last 100m or so is very steep uphill, apartment is excellent with everything catered for, could do with a sun canopy coming out of the wall like some other apartments as it can get a little to hot on balcony although a lovely spot looking over the pool and the sea, would recommend and would happily stay again
The apartement ist perfect situated in the center of Funchal- 1 minute to the market - 3 minutes to supermarket and bus stations. This is very helpful if you like to travel by bus. - Airport Bus is 5 minutes away! It is fully equipped (even a small heater - we needed it !) and very comfortable. The W-LAN is fast. Only negative point is (if you like it very quiet) that the neighbours are often loud and you can here the drums from the music school dowenstairs. If you are uesd to live in apartments - that is nothing uncommon. All in all a perfcet place to stay!
Great apartment, great location and we really enjoyed Funchal. An ideal base to explore Funchal an Madeira. Recommended all the way!! Thank you!
We had a wonderful stay in Funchal. The flat iswell-equipped, large enough, clean and comfortable with a terrasse that invites for sun-bathing.
It was quiet (apart from a dog in the surroundings which kept barking).
The flät is very central. It is near to the town centre and to other points of interest, for example Monte. Coming from the airport, it is bus stop 03 of the shuttle bus and from there, 3 minutes walk (steeply up the hill).
The procedure of taking over was well-organized.
We would be coming again!
Beautiful, stylish apartment in absolute proximity to the center, the sea and the market hall. The whole apartment, including the bathrooms, were in like new condition. The washing machine was not very fresh, well. The balcony is large and has a nice view of the mountains and the gondolas of the cable car that runs past the house. The building (corridors etc.) is very neat. Down in the neighboring house there is a snack bar, gorgeous. After one week, an intermediate cleaning and linen change was performed. In short, we were extremely pleased!
Schöne, stilvoll eingerichtete Wohnung in absoluter Nähe zum Zentrum, Meer und der Markthalle. Die ganze Wohnung, auch die Bäder, waren in einem neuwertigen Zustand. Die Waschmaschine war nicht ganz frisch, na gut. Der Balkon ist groß und besitzt eine schöne Aussicht auf die Berge und die Gondeln der Seilbahn, die am Haus vorbei fährt. Das Gebäude (Flure etc.) ist sehr ordentlich. Unten im Nachbarhaus befindet sich eine Snack-Bar, herrlich. Nach einer Woche wurde eine Zwischenreinigung und Bettwäschewechsel durchgeführt. Kurzum, wir waren äußerst zufrieden!
It was a really beautiful place to stay. All beautifully decorated. Kitchen is fully equipped. Can you really only recommend.
Es war eine wirklich wunderschöne Unterkunft. Alles sehr schön eingerichtet. Küche ist vollständig ausgestattet. Kann man wirklich nur weiter empfehlen.
Peaceful corner was the perfect place for discovering of Funchal and Madeira
The apartment was given just as nice and clean as the Internet. The key handovers went without any problems. Gladly again.
Die Wohnung war genauso schön und sauber wie im Internet angegeben. Die Schlüsselübergaben verliefen völlig problemlos. Gerne wieder.
