This place is unbelievable. It is right on the beach and looks like something out of a fancy magazine. It's very comfortable and you feel a sense of calm and relaxation the second you arrive. The bay is absolutely gorgeous. There are several lovely hikes in the area. We also went to the petrified forest beach and saw the yellow eyed penguins. They are much more reserved than their chatty blue penguin cousins but they are stately and well worth the wait to watch. If you are thinking about a stay in this area you MUST stay here.
