Guest Review

Amazing location, and the highlight was the little private beach area. It was so lovely to wake up and have a coffee whilst watching the water and reading a book.

I really liked having a sheltered outdoor area so I could sit outside even when it was raining. The lodge was immaculately clean and very cute. You need some transport to get around, but it’s still a short drive to the main areas. Feel like it was very good value for money here as well!
