The boat is 5 minute walk to the shops and 10 minute walk in the opposite direction to the ferry. The ferry service is excellent, not only is it free but we never had to wait on one for more than 1 minute.

The area the apartment is located is great too with supermarket and other amenities minutes away. Myself and my partner came to stay for the New Year celebrations and was definitely not disappointed! Peter was a fantastic host communication was perfect and answered all the questions we had. Also Paini was there to show us around the apartment and was very welcoming! Will definitely be returning!
