Property description

Experience expansive luxury in this riviera view apartment in the heart of the entertainment district, 2 blocks for the 'Funk Zone' and four blocks up from the beach. The house is in the heart of the entertainment district with shopping, music, dance and excellent restaurants just steps away. French doors open to a large private deck with views of the mountains, Riviera and city. The deck is equipped with an outdoor fireplace and BBQ. A 'loft' style great room with cathedral ceiling includes the kitchen, dining and living areas. The fully enclosed property is a peaceful refuge in easy walking distance of everything. There is gated off-street parking. Pick fresh fruit from the orange, plum and guava trees and ride provided bicycles for a beautiful relaxing holiday. A perfect romantic getaway. Maid service, in house massage and airport pick up available on request.
This is one of three apartments in an old home so please understand that this is not a good choice for loud late night partying. If you would like to check out the other two apartments, they are Mama Dux (one bedroom) and Baby Dux (studio).
