We stayed here for 2 nights. It is about 5 mins away from town but it's really no problem as everyone drives anyway. We stayed in the unit called Tasman. It's good as it's a corner unit so it is pretty quiet. There are 2 things that makes me give this place 4 stars instead of 5 stars - (1) the 2 bedroom apartment only has 1 toilet to share between 5 of us. If there were 2 toilets, it'll definitely be better (2) the floor is not solid, so it can be noisy when people are walking around the apartment. Having said that, the great service, friendliness, helpfulness and cheerfulness from the Canadian manager makes all these more bearable. I also like it that despite it being an apartment, they do have cleaning service daily.
