We were a group of eight travelling to the Winterless North to compensate for a cancelled US vacation and really hit the jackpot with the Sanctuary.From the moment we arrived Glenys made sure that anything we needed was provided including copious amounts of excellent food and beverages.We really appreciated that a warm fire was burning when we returned from a very chilly round of golf with comfy seating and the bar ready to go.All in all we couldn’t fault anything from the super beds to the immaculate rooms and individual balconies.Glenys was always on hand if anything was required but didn’t impose herself on the group.If you stay,be sure to have one of her lovely dinners in,highly recommended.
We both loved our stay at the Sanctuary and didn’t want to leave. A mid winter getaway for us and we are already planning a spring visit. The location is very quiet and peaceful. The accommodation has a calming relaxing feel about it which strikes you the moment you walk in the door. Each of the four rooms are spacious and comfortable all with a private sunny balcony and glorious views. So lovely to arrive to find a Complimentary bottle of wine and some beer in our fridge waiting for us and a great selection of teas and coffee. The communal living, dining area and balcony upstairs also has a fabulous vista of the sea and islands. With the fire roaring, plenty of cozy seating areas it made you feel like you were at home. Along with a delicious breakfast each morning Glenys provided two fabulous evening meals for us. There’s no need to go out to dine, the food at the Sanctuary is first class. Glenys’ attention to detail was evident in every aspect of our stay from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We highly recommend this retreat. …
We had planned a 3-day stay many months ago. The coronavirus pandemic forced us to cancel, because one of us developed upper respiratory symptoms before departing on our trip. The host graciously allowed us to cancel, despite that we were past the cancellation window. An incredibly kind and gracious gesture -- we hope to visit later this year or a year from now. But prospective guests should take note of exceptional behavior by this host.
We recently stayed here - and I'm glad we did. The room we had gave stunning views, and was large and comfortable. The house itself is beautifully situated, with simply magnificent views over the bay, the hostess was extremely welcoming and accommodating, and the meal we had there was very very good! Very highly recommended.
The Sanctuary is a little piece of paradise! The first thing you notice is the stunning view; the rooms are very comfortable with every thought and consideration given to the details that helped to make our stay just perfect. Breakfast is really good with lots of choice. Our host Glennis recommended some good local restaurants for dinner and also places to visit and things to do. Just wish we could have stayed longer than two days!
