    Guestbook

    We stayed 2 nights at this lovely apartment right on Flinders. Our city guide even stopped at the building as an example of the nice apartments that have been put in the central business district.  It was attractive, clean with amazing amenities like fresh flowers and candies.  The owner let us in and helped us arrange a driver to the airport and even store our suitcases until we left after lunch. We were close to everything:  visitors center, shopping, restaurants and even a local theatre for a play.  Wish our stay had been longer.
