We stayed here for two weeks in February. We spent the first week in the Studio Apartment and the second week in the 5* Apartment.
The location is excellent. You couldn't ask for a more central location. You are a 10-15 minute walk from the floating bridge (downtown), 10 minute walk to the Avila Hotel (beach available weekdays), 10 minute walk to the markets, 20 minute walk to a supermarket and if you are really keen, a 45 minute walk to Mambo beach (Seaquarium). We never once felt unsafe walking at night. It was dark when we walked to supper and of course dark when we returned. As a matter of fact there are neighborhood security guards out at night so it really is quite safe. We ate at 18 different restaurants during our stay and all but one were within a 10 minute walk!
We rented a car for one day to go visit the beaches on the north west part of the island. Very beautiful and well worth the trip. Other than that we found plenty to amuse ourselves with in walking distance of PM78.
Cindy and David were very friendly and helpful. If you have any issues they are addressed immediately.
As I said at the beginning week one was in the studio suite. It is small so I couldn't imagine spending 2 weeks in it. Having said that, it is fully functional and has a small fridge for your beer and a coffee machine. There is a nice little sitting area on the front porch over looking the street. A privacy screen separates you from the City apartment. We did a lot of exploring the first week while staying here.
The second week was in the 5* apartment. I really cant add much more to what has already been said in other reviews. The place is very industrial and modern, right up our alley. The views were awesome and the sunsets incredible. We watched the sun set from the small "beach" every night. The place is fully stocked with everything you need to stay and eat in if you so desire.
The a/c in both apartments was very effective and very quiet. The beds are very very firm and as we have encountered in St. Lucia, only have a top sheet to cover you.
If you are considering a stay here, don't hesitate, pull the trigger and book it today, you wont be disappointed.
