    There is no AC. They do not need it. In summer there is always a breeze off the ocean. Each cabin has a highly efficient wood burning heater for winter.

    The official website lists the cabins with names (Montebello, Ewbank, Loch, etc). Your review speaks of #6. Which one is that, please?

    Stormy Petrel and Cygnet (both built in 2015) are the most popular. However all 6 have the same view.
