The apartment is well equipped - we didn't cook but if we had wanted to all the supplies were there. Kieren - who checked us in was super helpful and gave us lots of tips. The food/restaurant area at the base of the building was a bonus - very good food available there. Thank you.

Still quiet enough for peace at night. They have the perfect grocery store, take away, and liquor across the street. I would recommend staying here.
