      Getting away from it all

      Blissfully peaceful, on the edge of the National Park. Loved the location and would use it again as a starting point for going further North. There is a great cafe down in the cove and a good restaurant at the Foss Hotel if you don't want to cook. Property is warm and would be a good spot for the Northern Lights if the clouds parted, you soon get used to the 24 hour 'breeze' Plenty of places of Interest and walking is fantastic. Do yourself a favour, book in and let the world drop away

      5/5 Excellent

        Lovely house for small group

        The house itself is extremely nice, light and well furnished. The location is pleasant and quiet. It is in a small enclave of houses on top of the hill with a ten minute, fairly steep walk to the beach. Birdlife can be seen from the comfort of your sofa! The bathroom is small with no real space to hang towels. We were just two people and I am not sure how a group of six would manage. Likewise with washing and drying the bedding at the end of the stay. It took us 3 hours to wash and dry for just two people. Bedrooms are also small with not much walking space around the beds. But we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house for a party up to 4 people. It is so much nicer than staying in a hotel.

        • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

        Beautiful view of the glacier and the ocean!!! Good location and quiet. Washer and dryer was nice to have as well.

          Perfect if you like it quiet

          This is the perfect place to go to relax and enjoy the peninsula. The house is in a little cluster of 12 cottages from where you have amazing views of the glacier and mountains. Great house with everything you need for a perfect stay.

          5/5 Excellent

            Allow time

            Everything was just as listed and with a great location. I was not a fan of having to clean the place and wash sheets/towels prior to leaving. Add 3 hours for the wash to clean and dry. I would have rather paid a fee to have this done.
