This property was described as a " Unique Magnificent Apartment with Uninterrupted View of the Ocean". But perhaps this epic build up created too high an expectation. We found the property to be tightly sandwiched between a main road and a railway, the latter described by the apartment owner as "scenic". It fact it's a regular graffiti-decorated commuter train which starts screeching and rumbling by at 4.40 am and gives several performances an hour.And when I say goes by it's about 15 feet from where you're sitting at your breakfast table. The uninterrupted view just happens to be framed by pylons and overhead cables. Meanwhile the noise theme is continued by the Letting Office which is next door to the Magnificent Apartment No1, as is a wee electrical pumping station that hums incessantly. All of which is a great shame as a big effort has clearly been made to ungrade the interior with big bathroom and a dose of style.However the props department got carried away with the ornaments - they clutter every surface from floor to ceiling requiring guests to be extra careful. Although the apartment was stated to have washing machine and drier it had neither of these mod cons. Nor did it have air con. So unfortunately our verdict is that while it's good on interior looks it's lacking in sleep quality and amenity.
