The cabins are located in a bushy area and very removed from the accommodation so you need to be prepared to be self sufficient, which we were. We paid over $150/night and expected a better equipped and less tired cabin. No egg slide in the kitchen made cooking pancakes a bit complex but the real problem was not one extra blanket was supplied and each bed had only one thin quilt. It was a freezing weekend and going to bed in my thermals is something I expect to do in a tent not a cabin. Crockery and cutlery required washing before use and I am not an overly fussy person. Great location for visiting the island's western end but this certainly wasn't a good value stay. Bring your own flyspray (none supplied of course) the screens have holes and the location near a lagoon means Mosquitos will be a problem especially in summer. On a plus side lots of birds, especially blue wrens.
