    Fantastic, made to feel very welcome (don't always get that on a motorcycle) room was really comfortable, fantastic big spa bath, good undercover park for the bike, easy walk in to town. Owners are friendly and nothing was a bother. Would recommend to anyone!

    Stayed here for 5 nights and found the place to be nice and clean and well appointed. Only 12 units, each with a Spa Bath. The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful, providing advice on sights and restaurants.

    Great location, clean, spacy, confirm all previous comments read before I booked this place. The place is more what I expected and we felt very welcomed from the host. The apartment is huge and comfortable near to all important places in town.
