We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 12th floor for 3 nights in June. The apartment really couldn't really be faulted. Excellent space and furnishings, very comfortable bed, lovely balcony - it really had it all. And right on the Esplanade near all the restaurants etc. Very reasonably priced - we booked directly through their website. We are... More

We (a party of 4, 1 couple and 2 friends) booked our stay here in early May. (Room 29) It was everything we wanted - impeccable location, so much space inside the apartment, all the cooking utensils and equipment, a seaview balcony where we can enjoy our breakfast or just a glass of chilled wine. We never met the owners... More

Thank you Seadaz and family for your excellent review. I remember you and your family well.

My uncle and I stayed in a 4th floor, water front condo in December 2013. The location was fabulous and convenient. The views were great and the unit (#29) was clean (2BR/2BA, W/D) and very well kept. I would highly recommend this place.
