    An excellent place to spend a few days, you don't need to move far from the accommodation to soak up all the wonderful views, although the coastal walk is equally spectacular. Very comfortable with additional welcome touches like fresh ground coffee and herbal teas available...More

    There is no AC. They do not need it. In summer there is always a breeze off the ocean. Each cabin has a highly efficient wood burning heater for winter.

    Stormy Petrel and Cygnet (both built in 2015) are the most popular. However all 6 have the same view.
