We've been travelling for months and this stands out as one of the best places we've stayed in. Really spacious, well equipped, clean, good location and to top it, the staff are amazing. Always smiling, always helpful and went out of their way to help us. Would definitely come back here.

Quiet location short bike ride to Macrossan street restaurants and shops. Great big room, comfortable king size bed, air con, wifi, swimming pool. Very clean and neat apartment with lounge, kitchen and dining. Hosts recommended places to eat. My only regret is staying one night, would have liked to stay longer.
