A wonderful first trip to Cape St Francis. Cottages were homely, clean and spacious. The restaurant and bar had a fireplace and heaters, great for winter nights. Star-gazing and sun-rise from the beach is a must. Walking distance to the lighthouse and SANCCOB.

Not a great option if you on a business trip to the area. 0 Mtn signal and the WiFi is exceptionally poor. No desk in the room. Might be a great holiday destination but no good for business travelers.More
