    Hi Emma, did they stay in a one bedroom deluxe? I cant see anywhere on this page or Birches website as to wether the apartment has a balcony or not. It shows a courtyard area but maybe that's for the town house? do you know? Thanks Kath

    To my knowledge no balconies attached to rooms. The entrance to apartments is via outside balconies opening onto a courtyard for parking and BBQ area. Large picture windows in rooms .
