Comfortable stay that ensures an enjoyable holiday

4 of 5
The apartment was clean, comfortable and well stocked with essentials. The view from the apartment was spectacular and we enjoyed our stay there. We noticed an eye for detail for everything a traveler would need while on a holiday, being available in the apartment. The kitchen was well stocked and well equipped but may need some deodorising. Coffee mugs may need to be replaced; they’re a bit stained. Wifi was excellent.

Wonderful Hunter escape

5 of 5
Everything was excellent quality. The small touches such as nespresso machine, ample capsules, tea, Bluetooth speakers, etc. were all enjoyed. Great communication beforehand in terms of room set-up and check-in. Early check-in and late check-out by an hour was also facilitated. All in all, one of the best rental properties I have stayed in.
