This is a very comfortable guest house located on cliff overlooking Meat Cove. The view is absolutely fantastic providing there is no fog when you are visiting. The fog does roll in and out very quickly so when we were there there were always periods when we could look out over the water. The guest house is run by Hector who usually stops by in the evening after fishing to visit and check in on the guests staying there. There is a nice sitting area and kitchen where guests can congregate. Rooms are currently going for $60 a night with a shared bathroom. Everything in the house is brand new and in good working order. Also very clean and since we had kids in tow we got an additional room for them at a significant discount (with a nice new bunkbed). There is an abundance of hiking trails near the house but these are for people in fairly decent shape as steep climbs even on short trails are involved. The whale watch run by Oshan nearby is an excellent excursion as well and reasonable price. To get to the guest house and into the community of Meat Cove you must travel down a 8km dirt road. We had no problems traveling on it in our mini-van.
