We highly recommend this gem. Cathy & David went out of their way to make Christmas morning special. The view of the harbour, filled with yachts & hills in the background was absolutely majestic at sunset. The room was impeccable, the lengths they go through to keep eco-friendly and recycling practices at the forefront of their lovely lodge was great to see. Your special touches were noticed and appreciated.
