Beachside Retreat is a stunning spot to get away from it all. The cabins are situated right on the beach with wonderful views and a real feeling of isolation. At low tide you can walk for miles along the beach, and the water is crystal clear (though a little on the cold side as I found out when I went for a morning dip). In fact the website doesn't do justice to just how stunning the beach is so I have included a few of my own photos to hopefully give a better idea of just how magnificent it is. We were fortunate in that we had lovely warm weather, and sitting on the deck overlooking the beach was glorious. Just 2 small qulams though - the deck is just a little too low so you can't really see the beach when you are sitting down, and the chairs on the deck are hard metal, not conducive to relaxing in the sun. A pair of comfy deckchairs would make this place perfect.
We stayed in Sandpiper which was really lovely. Very nicely designed and furnished. It's not really cheap given there is no breakfast or room servicing included, but that's no issue when you are lapping up the wonderful views and glorious serenity. And at low tide the beach is great for practicing your sand game (for those golfers out there!). Also Stanley is a beautiful quiet little town, and the views from the Nut are magnificent. Well worth the trek up there.
All in all a wonderful place to stay and we would highly recommend it.
