Fantastic!!! I could not recommend highly enough. So accommodating and a beautiful fully equipped apartment in a perfect location. We were found wanting for nothing and Teresa and Wayne have even extended their immensely helpful nature far beyond our stay. I don't imagine we will even consider anywhere else when booking in the area next time.

The apartment is so lovely and impeccably clean. It had a homely feel and I had a very comfortable stay. Teresa was very friendly and quick to reply to messages. I would definitely recommend staying here.
