Property conditions & facilities


6/10 Good

The property was great for our needs but I would expect to have Netflix or similar. Property managers gave us the wrong garage entry key so we couldn't access the basement. They gave us another unit but it was unfortunate that this mix-up occurred. The garage remote was damaged so it didn't always work. Garage was separate from front door which made unloading difficult.

8/10 Very good

Five stars for cleanliness. Modern property. Beds are a little too soft for us. Centralised aircon. Upstairs though are the bedrooms with a high flight of stairs, not recommended for families with very little kids or babies. One area of the master bedroom where we stayed at creaks when you walk. Our dishwasher doesn't wash properly as it uses powder instead of pods. The bin was not cleaned properly, still has food scraps in it. No soap supplied. However, this property is still recommended and will still definitely stay here again. Negative feedbacks are just for improvement sake.

6/10 Good

Property was great, but had to pick up the keys at a different property and then found out we had to pack up and leave early as our apartment had been double booked.

Was a little difficult to find at night in the dark, and you need to pick up the keys from a different location (5min drive away), but the apartment was excellent. Very clean & comfortable with onsite parking in a shared parking garage.
