Jumping Mouse provides a wonderful camping experience in a lovely location overlooking the ocean. The tent sites are terraced into a grassy hill with trees and meadow between each site for privacy. The shower was hot and the outhouses were clean. I enjoyed the "back to the earth" atmosphere of the place which resonates through the landscaping and the facilities, such as the artfully placed whale bones and the shower built onto the side of the barn...the only minor irritation was that the fishing boats made a lot of noise when leaving the harbor, so sleeping in was not easy. But this meant I was awake for sunrise, so no complaints!
