Jamie and Kathy were very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Carparking was easy and their gorgeous dog was an instant hit.We would thoroughly recommend this property as it is in an excellent residential area with a bus at the door to the city and the ferry terminal and shops are just a five minute drive away.

The apartment itself was also unique. Super high ceilings, clean, spacious - even underground parking! Just all around a great place. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
