The highlight for us was falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the nearby shore. We stayed in unit 5 which had lovely leafy surrounds and ocean views. It was only 2 minutes drive to the blowholes and the cosy tavern.
The only problem we had was with the shower, the water temperature seemed to vary between two extremes. The cabin does get cold over night so make sure you have enough blankets handy during winter.
