8/10 Very Good

My family especially likes the beach behind our cabin with seals on the other side. And we could walk to the famous rock in 20 minutes and come back in 10 minutes. The cabin is big. Only drawback is no cooking oil or salt/sugar in the Kitchenette, but the staff was very nice , he borrowed us his salt so we could be able to make some simple breakfast
