The owner never gave check in instructions until after i checked out then an email came through. and check in took nearly 1 hr because he kept talking. Not time i had to spare the night before my wedding. The floor boards were so dangerous and should have been fixed as soon as possible. The floor was warped he did warn us on check in but it was still very dangerous walking in the hall way. Internet wasnt working owner asked us to fix it when we checked in.

Very very disappointed for what we paid. 2nd bedroom like a shoe box with no windows. Firstly the whole process of getting the key is uninviting. Next had trouble opening our door- the lock was lose & it took lots of goes to open. 3 wine glasses that didn’t match; no table to sit at; No face washers. It was all odd. And finally couldn’t open gates to exit- luckily another person came along and used their keys to exit the car park.

Check-in was a hassle, after calling the day before check-in I was told check-in details will arrive via email on the morning of check-in. After not receiving the details by midday, I called again and was told they would arrive before check-in time (3 pm). At 3 pm when I arrived at the property, I had to call back, and the owner then met me onsite as the property was still being cleaned. I had to park on the street as the cleaner was parked in the apartment carpark. Upon entering the apartment with the owner, the cleaner advised the blinds had fallen off the wall. The owner then attempted to fix the blinds for 45 min. They were left hanging by a screw. The owner then went to his car to get the sheets and blankets for the beds. Finally, sometime after 4 pm, the owner left. It was very frustrating.

Excellent location, great facilities Unfortunately woken at midnight by group of drunk locals carrying on outside- unfortunately our room was almost at street level so noise was loud. Am sure this is a random act. Definitely wouldn’t deter us from visiting again

Location was good but heard alot of road noise and when people walked past it was like they were in the other room. Also the curtains need to be better blockout, due to the street lights it was very bright at night time

The apartment was in a great location with a view of the park out the lovely big windows and of the bay from the balcony. It was very quiet inside and clean and comfortable. Heating was good, kitchen well appointed and beds and couches very comfortable. Thoroughly recommend this property for a family or group.
