Great location so close to the beach. In summer it must be fantastic. Due to my stay in winter it was a little bit cold. I took a second blanket from one of the beds in my dorm.

A little paradise difficult to find

At the end of nowhere but an incredible place, so friendly and nice. Possibility to see the sea lions just by walking along the beach. Very calm and surrounded by nature.

3/5

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

The location is fabulous...right on a beautiful beach where there are often sea lions. This lodge was adequate. The showers were a bit grotty and there were no mirrors in the bathrooms. No sharp knives in the kitchen. No shoes allowed in the lodge and there's some disgusting slippers to borrow. The slippers should be tossed out. Small complaints- but quite a few of them.

Stayed 2 nights in Jan. 2019
