Disliked: Amenities
Loved the view, and location was good to the glacier lagoon and other south coast sites. We were unable to connect to wifi the entire time, only 1 shower was working, and it was unclear that breakfast was for some guests but not for others.

beautiful vistas, Table mountains, ocean and the light was beautiful. The cabin lacked adequate heat, the comforter/duvet was thin, I got a splinter in my hand opening the door that was warped and stuck. Still, a cute little cabin. The mattress was thin, lucky to have sheets I suppose, though we were not informed that we would need our own towels, And no facilities for cleaning them. The electrical and hot water was intermittent in the shower room. For the price, they could have at least included some bath towels.
