We very much appreciated being able to book out late as we had an extremely long day on the day we arrived.

I was surprised at the size of the apartment, its a pity the bathroom was at the opposite end and the decor was dated to the early 2000s. The couches need replacing in the next year or so. It had the feel of being the owner’s apartment and perhaps once upon a time the kitchen supplied the check in desk area somehow. Location is perfect. Value for money and wonderfully comfortable. Will be returning hopefully soon.

The overall property and room was terrific, very clean and quite comfortable. The facilities in the room were ample with everything you could possibly need for stay, in a way. The kitchen had/has everything that you would need to cook up. There was a iron & ironing board, hair dryer, even. The lounge/kitchen area was huge, with ample seating for guests or just to sit and have a meal at the kitchen bench, as was the bedroom, very neat and tidy. Absolutely loved the decor, pictures & lay out. A home away from home...I'd call it! The only thing that could possibly be a small dislike was some of the street noise from vehicles... but that's to be expected, with the room being right on the street front, but with a nice view of the Esplanade and water. Just loved the place. And the swimming pool was a added bonus! I will stay there again! 5/5

Apartment wasn't quite like the pictures depicted however met our needs adequately. Just across from the beach and grocery store nearby. Loved the two tvs - kids could watch their programs and we could watch ours. Comfortable.
