    Great stay, friendly staff. Although a little bit dated beds were very comfortable and the cabin was spotlessly clean. Would stay again beautiful surrounds. Great coffee at the nearby floating cafe on the marina and lovely beaches to walk along.More

    Hi All the glamping tents look over the water. Each tent has a fire and is quite warm but in July you might not get the weather to sit out on the balcony and watch the sunset!
