Very nice Architectural Design
Large Bedroom w/ Built-in shelves and large TV
Large Exterior Deck
Interesting Exterior Environment
Nice Exterior Sound Effects
*Very Few Spawn Points
Only 2 Guest Rewards and only available on the weekends compared to 7 for the Arctic and Dream yachts.
No Built-in Gift Machine
No Time of Day Option
No Hot Tub
Built-in Fireplace is much too small for the room it's in and you can barely hear it.
*Not only does this make it more difficult to decorate, but for reasons that make no sense to me, it does not even have a spawn point in the bedroom... And the only two openings into it are far too narrow to fit a bed through. Adding insult to injury, the very first reward I got when I first explored the space was the bed... But I can't place it in the bedroom... Makes no sense.
For a space that costs as much as the Artic Yacht (also a gift machine space) I was very disappointed to find it is missing many of the features that the Artic Yacht has, like the multiple spawn points, guest rewards, built-in gift machine, and time of day option.
It's a nice space, but compared to others, it's not worth the asking price. It is more similar to spaces valued at the standard $5 price.
Lockwood is a great developer and they take a keen interest in what their customers say, so I would not be surprised if they update this space in the future to improve it and add value to it. However, for now I personally would recommend others pass on this space until it get's an update.

I voted satisfied.
I like the space, I really do. But my gosh, even the Polar Boat - sorry I can't remember the name - had plenty of spawn points!!! The lack of them kind of dulls the fun of decorating... and the fact beds don't fit in the bedroom and do not spawn in there is really weird. This should have been noticed before release, lol.
It looks fun to decorate but I can't until more spawn points are added, sorry. Great start, though, just needs refinement.
Had to add, extremely satisfied my lovely friend gave me it!!! xD

Satisfied, it's a nice place that opens up for a minimalist decoration. But the spawn points are way to few, the balcony on second floor can't be entered, to many sofas.

Voted very dissatisfied.
Visually, this apartment is beautiful. It has nice ambient sounds and a lovely design aesthetics. Those are the only pros in my opinion.
For some bizarre reason, you are not able to swim in the pool (what is this, 2011?) and some people said they were not able to fit a bed in the bedroom, I guess due to lack of spawn points.
The fact that this an apartment and not a clubhouse is the biggest flaws in my book. Clubhouses hold more people and allow people to come and go as they please.
Also this apartment is much too vast and open to be decorated well. Rooms should be smaller and more manageable. However, it would be perfect as a clubhouse furniture showroom.
On top of all this, the fact that it is only available via gift machine makes it annoying and inconvenient to obtain, and is not worth the effort and cost.
