Loved it. Great views, perfect accommodation. Love the breakfast provisions and the provided kitchen essentials. Extra touches like warm throw blankets, high quality linen and a corner spa make all the difference. Good value for money, lovely dealing with the proprietors too. Will definitely stay there again!

As soon as you walk in the door you are blown away by the magnificent view that is in front of you. The apartment ways clean and inviting. Breakfast provisions were poor however we were prepared with our own supplies, the kitchen had everything we needed (no dishwasher didn't bother us). As mentioned in other reviews, many windows did not... More

Wow wow wow! What a view! We had the best stay here. The views are stunning, the place is beautiful. I loved the design of the building. It had everything you could possible need. It's a home away from home. The kitchen was great. We could tear away ourselves from the amazing view so we stayed in and cooked our... More

It's obvious, the best thing about this place is the view... but note if you're visiting in summer the sun comes up at 4:30am and goes down after 9pm so there's a real need for blinds over those beautiful large windows! Also worth noting for future guests is the lack of phone services (mobile voice and data) unless you're a... More

Overall stay of 2 nights was good. The views of the Harbour was just fabulous, but service was almost non- existent. Did not know who to contact to replace a blown bulb in the living room, and could not find any waste-bin bags in the house. The interior design was extraordinary, but the winding staircase made too much noise, creaking... More

This property is unique and has a fantastic location - unbeatable views across the harbour. Though the finer touches are missing - general cleanliness was okay, however the oven desperately needed cleaning and the small items which should have been available eg a dishcloth were missing also the freezer fan was iced over - additionally no WIFI or dishwasher.

We arrived at the wheelhouse last month and we were blown away by the quality, style and views of this property. It looked better in real life than in the photos. Unfortunately the apartment floors had not been cleaned so we were welcomed by someone elses hair on the floors (lots of it) and in the bathrooms and toe nails... More

These apartments are large. We stayed in apartment 2. It had two bedrooms (one mezzanine with stunning view) and two bathrooms, a large kitchen and lounge area. It was actually too large for two of us. However, the absolutely stunning uninterrupted natural view of the river, the ambience of the apartment and the attention to detail with respect to the...
