Nice and clean and very large for an apartment. We were very pleased that the whole place was air conditioned as it was quite warm for a few days of our stay. A few of our friends came over who were staying in another building and they only had aircon in the bedrooms so we did a lot of entertaining! Lovely large outdoor area and the bbq got lots of use during our stay. The building is very close to the shops and also there are lots of restaurants nearby. Will be looking to come back on our next trip.
