“Wonderful and handsome are my words for this!”

I was swash-buckled by the amazing plethora of facilities available, stayed at the Garden Duplex Apartment and right from the patio to the kitchen to the rooms and all that was present were seriously flabbergasting!

I have never come across something as serene and as subtle as the Garden View Apartment, the facilities were amazing and the place was beautiful, it was a perfect what you call it as a ‘Perfect Zen Retreat’ for me and my family and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there!

I would definitely recommend this to anyone and if you want to spend some good quality time with your family away from the hustle bustle of the city, mind you that East Village Apartments are the best for you eyes closed! Very inviting and very appealing, I don’t have words to describe the enjoyment and relaxing we had!
