What can I say.....An Excellent Apartment.
I would recommend this apartment for anyone wanting a 'home from home'. Everything about this place is class, it is very clean, modern, well decorated and in a great location. Crisp fresh towels & sheets, it had everything that you would want for a 2 night or longer stay. Highly Recommended.

Clive was lovely - really friendly and helpful and remarkably unfazed by 3 small children descending upon his lovely apartment. Everything was very well organised beforehand and he was at the flat to greet us and help us with our bags. We had no problems at all during our stay but we had his mobile number to contact him if we did, which was very reassuring. He is also very trustworthy and returned our security deposit directly to our bank account within 24 hours of our departure! I definitely and wholeheartedly recommend Clive as a host - thank-you Clive!!
