Comfortable, quiet, clean executive studio
Comfortable unit. Recently upgraded? But dark as windows were onto punga grove- pleasant to see but made it dark. Perhaps ask for end units as not so dark. Gas fire box made it cosy. Stayed 3 nights. Convenient to walk to town and good spot to explore surrounding attractions.
