Currently midway through our stay at genesis and cant be happier. Room is well fitted out with a kitchen with appliances and utensils you don't normally expect in a holiday rental. Location is ideal, close enough to cavil ave to be convenient but far enough away to be isolated from the late night antics, ideal for families. Pool is heated... More
