As we only booked 2 days before , i was just pleased to find an availability for a family of 4 . The pictures did not do the place justice , and we where surprised at how large the unit was . The owners greeted us like old friends and where very helpful . The kitchen had everything you needed all very clean and new . Excellent spot to go and visit the penguins and albatross .. If only i had known i would have stayed for both nights we spent on the peninsula . We spent one month on both islands sleeping in 8 different houses , This motel being one of our favourites :) excellent value for money and highly recommended
