Lakeside Apartment

We had the pleasure of spending the last night of our road trip in a Lakeside Apartment at The Lakes by Yoo; these luxurious apartments boast 3 bedrooms, lakeside views from a private balcony, a large soaking bathtub, superking bed (two of the bedrooms offer twins which can be made up as a superking or two singles) and a fully equipped kitchen.

As there was only the two of us we had our choice of bedrooms; we opted for the bedroom with the lakeview as it was a magical view to wake up to!
