This place was fantastic. Very large lounge, kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom. I mostly enjoyed the attention to detail in the design - built in bedside lights for all beds, book shelf above the bed head, seperate toilet, shelf for suitcase, verandah with outside furniture and Full size fridge. The linen was great and beds comfy - would definitely stay again. It is a little exy, but you wont be disappointed. Thank you
