  • Really enjoyed staying here. The location is nice and there's a great view for the terrace. The plunge pool was good, especially if you have young kids as it's not too deep. We stayed for 2 weeks in total and really loved it. Would definitely recommend it. Only downside was the tv which couldn't connect to that many English channels but the town is so nice, you won't spend much time indoors!

    We thank you for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure hosting (website hidden) TV channels, we will try to improve on them.

  • I stayed in the apartment together with my family for 10 days in May 2013. The flat is located at the roof of a completely newly build residential house nearby the waterfront. It is very spacious, modernly and comfortably furbished and equipped with everything we needed. It is surrounded with large terraces (one of them with a pool). For a small surcharge we rented also a convenient parking space in an underground garage below the house (direct lift access to the apartment).
    The hosts were very nice and trying hard to make our stay as comfortable as possible. When we arrived the kitchen was even supplied with all basic necessities - coffee, tea, milk, bottled water, some fruits... Communication with them was prompt and easy via email (both before and during our stay).
    The wifi internet access was stable and reliable with no issues.
    I can only recommend this accommodation.
