Good place to stay. Quiet and peaceful.
Beach is a little farther than 190 meters. That's as the crow flies bit still an easy walking through the national park Campground next door. I liked the place but if you are looking for plush this isn't it. Clean.comfortable. dog friendly and inexpensive plus close to a great beach. Ps . Owner very accommodating
We were really looking forward to our stay here because of all the great reviews, but as soon as my husband and I walked in we both tried to hide our disappointment. The 'cottage' was very small, and felt like an oversized trailer more than a cottage. Often, when we had been using water (shower, etc) it would begin to smell like septic outside the cottage, which made it unappealing to be outside. The beds were quite uncomfortable, although when notified the manager was great at helping make them better. The cottages are all close together, so you can always see into others cottages and everyone is close by. The lot is long but skinny, so they are all side by side, giving it very much a community feel (whereas when I vacation I like more of a privacy, spacious feel). Our cottage did not have a tub, which was very inconvenient since we had an infant with us. The bathroom itself was he size of a closet, and the kids room was wall to wall beds with maybe a meter squared of floor that was available to stand on. The fire pit was a metal garbage can...
Basically we found the manager there to be steller, bend over backwards helpful, which was great. But, in my opinion, that cannot override the disappointment we felt with the cottage. Having stayed at 3 different cottages, and having been on the island before, we really felt you can get a lot more bang for your buck at other places. We actually ended up staying in my mom's cottage rental's spare room for most of the week, (she rented a cottage at Lyon's cottages, which was great). We also rented 2 cottages via VRBO which were give or take $100 more or less than this cottage, and they were private and beautiful.

When we first arrived, we were astonished by how clean our cottage was. It was a great to be off to a clean start!
Ken, the owner, was super hospitable and has an A plus personality.
My only complaint was it would have been nice to have a nice big non-stick frying pan. But if that's my biggest complaint that means it was an overall fantastic experience.
The beach was a pleasant 5 minute walk. It was paradise. I love being inside the national park.
The place was clean and quiet. We were looked after very well. The central location also made it very convenient to anywhere on the island. Thank you Ken and family
My husband and I could hot have had a better experience that this at the Lyons Cottages. The owners make you feel right at home there, they are easygoing, friendly , very accommodating to all of your needs. I would recommend cottages to anyone who was looking for an excellent holiday.
