Sweeping views of the VA Waterfront’s yacht basin, the World Cup stadium can be enjoyed from the balcony. There are electric blinds on all of the balcony doors and plenty of space for relaxation. There is also a barbecue grill.

Tucked around the corner from the open-plan living area is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Colourful artwork on the brick wall adds charm and character to the room.
