Compact ideal studio apartment in wonderful setting

5 of 5
This small but adequate studio apartment, bed/living room with corner kitchen, bathroom and utility room is clean and comfortable. A great bonus is the roof deck. We were there in mid-March but still able to take advantage of it in the late afternoons when we returned from our trips out. In the summer months it would be excellent on warm nights, with a BBQ and a sink up there. There is also a neat little patio just outside the entrance door. We enjoyed being 'on the street', and greeting passers-by, who were all very friendly. During the winter months it was ideal for 2 of us, but the living conditions might be a bit tight for the 4 people it says can be accommodated. If the sofa bed was pulled down there wouldn't any space between the beds. It could be OK in the summer, but the sleeping arrangements would still be quite cozy. The pre-departure information from the owner was excellent, lots of recommendations for places and items of interest and detailed instructions on how to use the equipment. Fortunately we had downloaded all his advice and instructions as there was not an internet connection and we couldn't find a hard copy of his information package at the property. It would be a useful addition to this lovely little studio apartment.
