The cottages are close to the lighthouse, and you can see it from most windows. Cape de Couedic is at the far western end of KI: you are advised to get there with plenty of petrol in the tank, as petrol is not available in the National Park.
We stayed at the Parndana lodge: three room, a living room and a kitchen with all amenities. the bathroom is a bit rough, but usable, and hot water is always working.
This lighthouse is sitting almost on top of Admiral arch, where a big group of seals has made his home, and within walking distance of the Remarkable Rocks (about 6 km).
The lodge is very well equipped, you do not need to bring anything with you: but if you want breakfast in the morning, or any other meal during the day, do not forget to take it with you.
all in all a memorable experience.
