Facilities & Amenities
The Briet Apartments are located in a two-storey building, with each floor making up an apartment. Each has a fully furnished kitchen, a bathroom, and a spacious and comfortable living area with a flat-screen television. Their only differences are in their views - with the second floor flat having a wonderful perspective of the town and bay - and their number of rooms.
The first-floor apartment can accommodate slightly fewer people, as it has just two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two singles. The upper storey has an additional room with two more single beds.
It is possible to book these apartments separately or, if you have a larger group, together; if you take the latter option, you’ll have access to an indoor staircase that connects the two. Both suites share a laundry room, and Wifi can be accessed throughout the building.
