Traffic noise.
Noise from traffic was consistent, plus the doors and windows do not sound proof well.

Absolutely perfect
Our stay was so wonderful! We arrived at night after our flight was delayed and walking into the courtyard with all of the beautiful landscaping, the calming sound of the fountain and the lighting, was so welcoming. The cottage was clean and simple yet still provided all of the little touches that made you feel at home. Full kitchen, hot shower, cute little eating was just perfect. Check in and out was a breeze. It’s like a private oasis but in close proximity to everything and in a nice area. We can’t wait to visit again.

Great stay, now that I've been Ill stay again.
I was surprise to see that the place was just as it showed on the site. It was a good cottage with all of the items i needed and in a good to get to location. I loved the fact that it was close to everything.

Overall Very Pleased
Was a little confused about how to check-in at first but I called and got the time of the Check-in email and everything was well explained in the email. The process was easy. The unit was cute and the area was quiet. The units are like mini apartments so there's a whole kitchen which was convenient however no central AC which was ok because the AC unit was in the bedroom area. Outside there are little bistro tables and there's a fountain area with a hammock, no one else seemed to use that area or was around so we got to hang out outside for a bit before going out. Our remote batteries were dead and I messaged them not expecting them to do anything within our 2 day stay but a staff member brought by extra batteries the next morning. I would recommend and I would stay again.

Very nice place to stay! But need to know there is no daily room service.
Nikolay, us6 night trip
Very good 8.0
It was a cozy and convenient location. The only criticism would be the plug in air freshener. It was too strong.
