This Lodge offers one of the best places to take a break. Trevor and Carol are wonderful hosts; the meals are to die for (well, not literally!); the accommodation is excellent; and the island itself offers tranquility, beauty and friendliness. This was our second visit and it won't be our last.

A totally unexpected but wonderful evening. A gastronomical delight. A beautifully balanced meal from the moment we arrived. From aperitifs to dessert, the tastes were delicious and the hosts attentive, interesting and caring. We would recommend highly to anyone wanting to experience high quality dining with the closest of attention in one of the most beautiful settings in the world.
