We stayed here for 2 nights. We were one of the lucky ones who had hot, sunny weather throughout our stay. This did make for a very warm unit after a full day in the sunshine, so I was a bit concerned at first that the windows did not have screens. Luckily, sandflies do not seem to be a problem there. The unit was nicely updated and comfortable. It's a great location, walking distance to walking tracks, local shopping, restaurants and coffee. I would definitely suggest stocking up on groceries elsewhere because Franz Josef's supermarket is quite tiny, minimally stocked and VERY busy.
Really, for us, there were only 2 downsides to staying here. 1) One set of outdoor table/chairs per every two units, situated right in front of the entrances to the two units. If your neighbor was sitting outside, you literally had to step over them to enter your unit. I really wasn't interested in even using the table/chairs because they are set in the parking lot. With such a beautiful location, it would have been really nice for each unit to have its own little verandah. 2) The entrance to the units is a large sliding glass door and large windows that look right out into the parking lot. The bedrooms are located at the front of the units, so you either keep your curtains closed and shut out the main source of natural light into the unit or get looked in upon.
