I had the pleasure of staying at these apartments in November 2013 and again in May 2014 and felt a review was justified.
We stayed in apartment 10 on both occasions which had a nice view of the Village Lake from the balcony. They cannot guarantee any particular apartment like most establishments, but if you wanted the best positioned apartment in the place, it is unit 9 - a three bedroomed unit on the first floor and on a corner with beautiful views of the small lake and mountains to the north of town.
When we first walked into the apartment, we said "wow". It was large and classy. A top quality kitchen with cutlery, crockery and appliances to match. There was a six seat dining table, a large lounge suite, built in electric fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo. The living area was spacious. The two bedrooms were a good size with very comfortable beds and there was a large bathroom with another separate toilet and hand basin.
The apartments are located about 500 metres from the centre of town so only a 5-6 minute walk. The area is very quiet and sleep quality is great.
My only criticism is that the extraction fans in the bathrooms are very noisy and stay on for a long time (10-15 mins) after the lights are turned off - they operate automatically with the light switches and you have no control.
All in all, a great place to stay with friendly hosts and I would not hesitate to return.
If the hosts are reading this, cut down that pretty conifer at the end of the hedge, it will block the nice view from unit 10 one day!
