We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with our two children. The location was perfect for us as not too far from the town and all major sites but also not right in the thick of things. A car is necessary to access most restaurants and sites but the carparking is included underground. The apartment itself was very spacious and... More

Apartment 5 has a huge deck with evening sun and direct access to the very warm pool and spa. The pool area has gate access to the lake front. Couldn't ask for more!! Great location... More

My friend and I stayed here for a few days away. Apartment 5 was truly lovely and clean, beautiful decor, modern and very spacious. It was still quite cool weather-wise when we stayed, but found the whole apartment very warm and comfortable. Due to the season we didn't utilise the fabulous outdoor area, but still enjoyed lake views from our... More
