Excellent location, spotlessly clean and is really well equipped. Everything you need is no more than 5 minutes walk away, and kitchen is so well equipped you can cook if not wanting to go out. Owner/ management company great to communicate with fast response every time. Thanks again looking forward to our next visit.
