    At first i didn't want to stay there the whole time. It was far and the walk seemed sketchy or dodgey to get there. For a million dollar property $10k would go a long way if the owner were to invest in it. But in the end the staff provailed, it wasn't to far to walk and I felt pretty safe. Probably wouldnt stay at that one again but would invite all the staff and people I met to come stay at my place. Backyard and lounge ok, kitchen kept clean by staff, but owner needs to invest. Not for squimis
