Perfect place for the location

  • 5 of 5

To me, it is a huge bonus to have someone willing to pick you up from the airport. Our plane was an hour late and Alex was right there waiting for us! He was very welcoming with little gifts and good advice for getting around the city.

The apartment was exactly as described, maybe even better. It is right in the perfect location for exploring the city but after 10 pm, it was pin drop quiet. The kitchen was perfect for people wanting to self cater. It even has a dishwasher and they have some kitchen essentials to get you started cooking your alfresco meals.

We were really happy to have a washing machine too. The apartment really has a lot of the comforts of home. It doesn't feel like a vacation rental but more like a luxury private weekend home. The art definitely gives it a homey feel.

If you haven't visited here before, this is a great place to explore by foot. From this apartment nothing seemed out of reach to us,

It was a great urban vacation ...

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning, I felt something at home. Behold, the starting and ending place of the studio on the top floor was filled with comfort and a sense of art. Initial fears proved unnecessary stairs, stairs quite comfortable .Maybe , it would probably be difficult to stay here with small children. Near everything ... you need for comfort and night life ... you can hear the ships depart for the evening and see the ocean and mountain from the top terraces. I will definitely come. I plan to stay in November ... looking forvard!!!

unusual and very creative

  • 5 of 5

I was one of the first guests of the house. Surprised. Everything is done with taste and love.I do not feel that you live in one as if at home. There were small problems with parking, but. given the exclusive location of the house, it was not a disadvantage. Near everything you need, shops, museums and the beach. Restaurants and cafes, despite the well-equipped kitchen we did not cooked. Leave the house and around the corner from a good restaurant. I will reccomend this house!!!
