It has its own separate entrance so come and go as you please. WiFi, SkyTV and a delicious continental breakfast hamper can be provided on request. Relax in our spa pool overlooking the harbour.

    The studio is really nice, big enough for two people with a beautiful view of the harbour. Easy 30-40 minute walk to the town/wharf. Would highly recommend to friends, couples or singles. Hopefully we get to stay at this place again.
