“This was an outstanding family vacation in a breathtakingly beautiful spot!”

The house was exactly as advertised, and all of the tips given to us by Phillip made us feel like we had a locals insight into the best things to do and see! The location of the house was magnificent; the house itself simplistic and charming, with everything needed to comfortably enjoy our week long stay. This was a trip that our young daughters are still talking about, and we can't wait to return next summer!

“She wanted tranquil and peaceful, I sought a bit more adventure - we had both, without compromise.”

You can easily spend an entire afternoon rocking on the hammock overlooking the bay - it's that nice - or, follow Phillip's detailed guide and find places only the locals know of. You'll appreciate his insider knowledge of the area when you trek to those spots.

If you go, get to Polletts Cove. The place is magical and well worth the 2+ hour hike in. You might want to hang out here for a few hours and watch the unicorns (horses) graze. The Cove looks like something out of a Lord of the Rings movie. It is breathtaking.

Back at the cabin, we watched the sun set almost every night, made even better while you're under a warm outdoor shower (or bath) with unobstructed views of the bay. The sun sets over what seems like an eternity, and you can likewise watch it from inside the cabin's second floor nook.

Be ready and comfortable with using an outhouse, taking an outdoor shower (it has privacy) and cooking with propane. The cabin does have running water and everything you'd need to cook/clean.

Phillip was great to deal with. Everything was as described (I'd say better). We loved our stay and found it a way to escape some of our modern trappings. Would love to come again!
