  2. photographs - rosemary (7 Oct 2012 - 10:45)


    I have spent hours trawling your site for a two bedroom apartment for two married couples. It is very frustrating, especially when you show endles photographs of the living areas, and several of similar shots of the double bed room, and only one of the twin bed husband and I don't mind putting up with twin beds, but not bunks! Why is it so dificult to find two doubles??
