Magical... simply magical! The cottage is perfect - it was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. You are literally a 3 minute walk from the albatross and a 30 minute walk from the Rockhoppers. We climbed mountains, swam at one of the two beaches close to the cottage and spent hours with the albatross and their chicks. The scenery is simply stunning!! We also visited Port Egmont (the first British settlement) and the owners were kind enough to take us across to Keppel Island to visit Cranmer Station. So, if history and wildlife is your thing then Saunders is the place for you.

My wife, daughter and I have just returned from staying at the Rookery and a night at the settlement. We live in the Falklands and appreciate that many camp houses or places in remote locations do not have 24 hour power (this is often taken for granted by most people). The cottage was great, 24 hour electrical power was my first great surprise. The proximity to the wildlife was another, the Rockhopper colony us a mere 30 minutes walk during which we could take in the gracefull Blackbrowed Albatrosses. The Rockhopper shower provides excellent photos, half a meter above are nesting Albatross with King Cormorants all around. Gently Penguins are 30 mins the otherway with a great each on the way.we swam with Commerson Dolphins and Magallenic Penguins. Staying at the Rookery for a few days was great as we could take in the sunrise and sunsets and capture same photos with different light. The whole family have fallen in love with Saunders Island with our teenage daughter saying she wished we were staying longer. The hosts David and Susan were exceptional and put us up in the settlement when fog grounded the Islander aircraft (to our delight). Truely wonderful to leave the I ternet and mobile phones on the back burner and experience genuine peace for a few days. We will be comming back.

We stopped here as part of an expedition/cruise of Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic islands. Within moments of our zodiac landing we stood on a small rise with simultaneous views of 4 types of penguins (king, gentoo, rockhopper and magellanic). You can get reasonably close (but not too close to them). In particular it is fun to watch the rockhoppers move around. The island also had amazing birdlife (the flying kind).

The wildlife was amazing and plentiful. Both the rookery and the neck were not to be missed. Anthony was amazing and helpful in all aspects of my stay there. I only gave it a two star rating because the House I stayed at in the settlement was a level of filth I have not encountered in all my travels across six continents. I literally was able to write my name in the dust on the carpet and the constant flow of bugs crawling up out of the carpet and around your feet on the toilet were a bit distressing. The flying bugs in the bedroom just added to it. Not to mention the bugs and dirt in the kitchen. I would have preferred camping over staying in this house. Even if something is basic it can be cleaned. This was not clean. I believe the accommodations at the neck and rookery are better. Do not stay at the settlement. I would only stay at the rookery or neck in the future. It was a shame because the wildlife was amazing to see and my sleeping space put a huge damper on the experience.
