Good Apartment
Good apartment, with all the things we needed to cook. Area good as well. We enjoyed our time here. Wi-fi was really fast and free.

Awesome Arcadian!
The couple owning/running the place were VERY friendly and hospitable. Everything had been thought of by way of kitchen equipment etc.; towels were changed daily and tea/coffee-making facilities topped up (tea, coffee, sugar etc.). Only concern I had was initially looking for a closet - the obvious door revealed only a big water tank, but then I realised the 2nd bed (a single, not used by us) was pushed right up against the door of the actual closet (which came complete with coathangers) so I just pushed the bed away from the door by a foot or two to enable access. At first I wondered why the single bed wasn't placed along the same long wall as the double bed, with the luxurious 2-seater leather couch on the wall opposite (where the single bed was), but I quickly realised the positioning was so that you could watch the nice-sized flat-screen TV on the wall from either the double bed or the couch. So, no other sensible option. Had a wonderful, comfortable and pleasant stay. Unit was very quiet despite being next to the road.
