    The apartment is great - 3 ensuite bedrooms, nice kitchen and living room. Vary spacious and well furnished and equipped. The owners are really nice and the breakfast was good. The drive from the airport and the waterfront was not too bad.

    We gave the laundry to the guest house and they did it - didn't see any self laundry facilities. They looked after our luggage after we booked out as we had a late flight.
