A very homely, stylish apartment that provides everything you need for a holiday. It is very large, which is great when travelling with two boys and had everything that we needed.
The support was great too, when I got stuck with the TV they rang me from Dubai to help out - a big thank-you.
I can highly recommend this property.
The only thing to notice is that it is on the second floor and there is no lift. For us, this was no problem.

Fantastic modern apartment close to St Albans city centre. Suitable for weekend or longer term rental. Being on the top floor there are 2 flights of stairs so not suitable for anyone who struggles with stairs. We would rent again without any hesitation.
