We stayed here for 2 nights on Sept 21-22, 2017. We were in the Stormy Petrel cabin, which is one of the 2 newer cabins. Our cabin certainly had excellent views down over the bay. This is why you stay here… location. The view never...More

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