The apartment we liked very well. The two (well-separated by the spacious lounge room) sleep- and bath rooms were ideal for us four. The apartment we found very clean. For shopping, we always went to the nearby Shaftesbury (a few km). Only the WiFi was not always the best (but we've also had much poorer WLANs).
