We stayed in the Breeze Cottage and loved it. During the evenings we dined and/or just sat outside enjoying the quiet, peaceful, relaxing admosphere. Luckily, unlike major resorts the lighting outside is not too bright thus attracting bugs. I just read in the most recent review that the lights were not working and they had to use candles. The lights were more than adequate, and in fact romantic. It is a very short walk to the beach where we found our ourselves a quiet area, brought our picnic lunch, books and just relaxed for the entire day. You can walk the beach and visit the more populated area but we justed wanted to spend time alone. We did make it into St, John's and English Harbor and of course Shirley Heights. If you are looking to become relaxed and refreshed from a busy life filled with telephone calls, emails, computers, distractions, I truly recommend Galley Bay Cottages. Thank you so much Natalie and Peter - your place was a godsend! Looking forward to coming back next year.
