A lovely warm house in a good location, walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. We were a bit worried not having a car, but the house isn't far from various bus stops, and the journey-planner system worked great. Thanks for a lovely stay :)

Great property, located in a beautiful tree lined street filled with period homes.

  • 4 of 5

Great property, located in a beautiful tree lined street filled with period homes. Really easy to find our way around being close to main access roads, but far enough away to be a quiet wee oasis. Loved the period character! Even though only a 1 bedroom, the rooms are generous in size with a good flow - especially liked the modern open plan kitchen/dining opening up to the lounge. We really enjoyed the space to spread out, especially when friends called in (couldn't do if in a Motel)
