Great place! Great View! We had an ocean view from our balcony and living room so that was a great plus point. Furthermore, I liked the size of the apartment and the fact that they 6 people could share it at once.
I quarantined here with a a couple of my friends so I had a great time. The washroom is a bit small for 6 people to share but we didn't have too much of a problem with it. I liked my view and the amenities they provided.
I liked my experience at gage. I found the living area to be spacious and neat. The place comes with a fridge, stove, microwave etc. The construction noises can be a bit annoying sometimes though.
