Excellent location and great apartment.

Leisure trip, Stayed 4 nights, Two Bedroom Apartment
One of the rooms was much much smaller than the other. Not a total shock as this had been shown on the website but it is tricky if you have 4 people living in the apartment for a week. Excellent location and great apartment. The hosts arranged an airport transfer for us which made things very easy. They also looked after our bags on check out day which was helpful. Couldn’t have been easier.

Stayed in October 2018
