This place is a true gem. So quiet and serene. Far from the hustle and bustle but only a $25.00 cab fare from city centre. The hostess is truly welcoming and helpful and the water which includes beautiful white swans and a multitude of Canada geese couldn't be better. The garden is lovely. Spent a day whale watching, eating fish and chips at fishermans wharf, visited fan tan alley and all the other touristy things. The casino is close by if that s your thing and there is a beauty school close where you can get massages, beauty treatments and general pampering at low rates. The apartment is top notch with everything you need. Clean and comfortable. This is a great choice for a solo traveler or a couple. The only negative is a long stairway up to the apartment which was difficult to climb with a heavy bag but the host has offered to carry it down for me.
