Forget the pretty photos, these apartments are run down and neglected.
Old, unreliable air conditioning. A stove out of the Ark. few pots or pans, little cutlery and chipped and old ceramics. Safe doesn't work and dirt in all the in-accessible corners. Wifi needs you to go downstairs to the pool arera.
I guess these are strata title and depend on the willingness of owners to maintain and update but management bears responsibility for charging top rates for a very run down unit.
I'm told there are good units in this complex so make sure you inspect before you sign in.
Good location and the Cock & Bull round the corner does a fantastic meal.
