These are small comfortable new and very clean units. We stayed in room 2, The only drawback to the units was a low degree of sound insulation between the adjacent room. We could hear the TV and snoring from next door. Having said that everything else was excellent. Bailey gave us free canoe use and carried the canoes, paddles and life jackets across the road for us and down to the edge of the shore. We were out for about 2.5 hours on the tidal section (very shallow and safe). on our return Bailey was waiting on the shore for us to carry the canoes back. He also offers the complimentry use of mountain bikes. There is a 36" TV with 15 chanels in the units. Nugget Point is only 30 mins away with seals, sealions, yellow eyed penguins seen from a DOC hide and at Porpoise Bay we saw Hectors dolphins. The whole area is a gem of natural delights.
