    We loved the view over the bay. The apartment was spacious and full of light. The morning birdsong was a bonus. Nothing to dislike.

    We spent 7 days there and were looking for a getaway to chill out and do things at our leisure .It was everything we had hoped for and more. We stayed in the studio apartment which overlooks one of the most beautiful bays we have ever seen.The apartment was very clean and comfortable and perfect for our needs.It is just a short walk to the coffee bars and restaurants and a short ferry ride to the town of Russell across the bay.Shirley our host was amazing and was always on hand to advise and recommend things to do and places to visit. Lynn and I were very sad to leave.
