Standard vs Superior? How are they different?
Our superior units are refurbished apartments with newer furnishings and facilities. Most or all of the furniture in the unit has been replaced with new furnishings and the unit itself will have been either fully or partially refurbished. Some apartments have completely new kitchens.
Although our standard units are still clean and functional, the furnishings are older. We are in the process of upgrading all of our apartments, but until the entire apartment has been brought up to a superior class, it is still considered a standard unit.
Both standard and superior apartments have lovely partial water views with views of Pumicestone Passage from the balcony and some of the living area of the unit.
