  • Really enjoyed this place, nice and close to town

    Really enjoyed this place, nice and close to town. Plenty of room to play with the kids outside and the view is amazing, we sat outside many times and just watched the world go by while enjoying the beauty. There is also a track to go for a walk which is accessible from the back of the flat.
