As a visitor to North America we were a little concerned about what the term 'self catering' actually meant. We need not have worried, as the range and standard of equipment provided was excellent. The accommodation is spacious, facilities are superb and the views from the balcony overlooking the Sound totally delightful. Our room had a hot tub on the balcony, allowing us to soak whilst watching the early morning mist lifting or the sun setting. The grocery store is a few yards away, and it carries all the items one would need, regardless of the size or tastes of your party. Just two very small points....there is no lift and the stairs to the accommodation are quite steep, but the staff are quite happy to carry bags on arrival or departure.....and there is a restaurant (Sea Shanty) right underneath the balconies, with both outdoor and indoor eating, serving supper only. So your balcony is overlooked, if you like, but from down below. Having said that we did not find either point an issue. It was a truly lovely stay....thank you Himwitsa!
