I felt most welcome and really spoilt by the lovingly prepared delicious breakfast by Bart. The apartment feels very much like home, very cosy and with absolutely stunning views towards the harbour. There are numerous excellent restaurants within walking distance and if you want to head to the centre or Newmarket for shopping you can also either walk or take... More

Thank you Bart for 4 wonderful days at your hidden gem in Parnell, such a super location quietly tucked away, but so close to Parnell and super restaurants that you were able to give us really good suggestions on where to dine out.

My friend and I stayed at this beautiful city apartment B&B two and half days. The one thing that I didn't understand (and I have not gone back to look at the website) was that the balcony was off the living room and not the bedroom. Since it was early winter, there was a lot of dark and the beautiful... More
