What our guests say

My daughter and I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for a week and a half. The apartment, gardens and pool exceeded our expectations. Minh and Dustin provided support and advice, helping with trip bookings and more. The apartment was clean, spacious and had everything we needed for a more than comfortable stay. Thank you for providing a home away from home...

My family and I were more than happy with our apartment and the location. So much so, that we intend on returning next year. It was such a delight having breakfast on the balcony each morning. Having a kitchen was great and the BBQ came in very handy. Pool and undercover parking was excellent. Big thanks to Minh, Dustin and the lovely lady who helped make our stay pleasant and memorable.
