Reviews for this property

  • Clairville Grove was spacious, charming and suited our needs. The kitchen was well equipped and the property was across just the one floor - which was great as I have mobility issues. Thank you for a great stay.

  • Beautiful area with parks, shopping, restaurants and a great atmosphere. We also loved the private garden for those sunny mornings. We loved it!

  • We had no problem with transport or finding our way around the neighbourhood, the location was superb. HFH was extremely helpful throughout and we will definitely use your company in the future.

    by Tom Australia
  • We loved the accommodations, found it very clean, convenient and would recommend it to others. I have always had a good experience with Home from Home and have and will recommend it to friends and hope to use the it again. Also, the container of detergent, trash bags, etc is wonderful to have.

  • An apartment with a difference! An enormous and impressive living space! Really good, with access to a charming courtyard garden. The bedroom is comfortable though hanging space is limited (but OK). It is really well situated. Close to all amenities but quiet and peaceful. Great!
