I too am one who has been having difficulty with the Saltwater lodge, but I am hanging in there so far. They failed to respond to my email after a week, so I called last night and talked with Jim. However, he told me his wife takes care of the reservations and that she would call me today. I am not holding my breath. He told me they had already taken a lot of reservations for July, 2008. I am looking for June, so he thought I should be okay. Anyway, I have a question about the Saltwater Lodge. If I cannot get a room with a view of the Bay, would I be better off getting something in the city? Although everyone says you don't need a car, I am wondering if after we pay all taxi and shuttle fees, if we would be better off just renting a car if we stay at the Saltwater. I will work through that some more. Basically for now, I am interested in knowing if the Saltwater Lodge is worth it if you can't get a room with a view?
