Property was close to the lake and town centre so going for walks and going out for food was easy We found the property needed a general update, lots of damaged items in the apartment which didn’t look great. Kitchen ware needs to be updated, especially pots and pans which were in horrific condition and near useless to cook on

Overpriced and underwhelmed.
A disappointing experience. There was no view of the lake, and the unit felt strangely unwelcoming. The manager, Cindy, was not at all accommodating. Despite the high cost of the unit, she refused to give us extra coffee pods or milk, although she did offer to sell them to us!
