Sanctuary Lakes Icon
The cabin is spacious and has a well equipped kitchen. The furnishings are quite eclectic without any particular theme or décor, but the bed was a highlight - very comfortable. The birds in the lake are quite noisy and some might find this annoying, though we didn’t. The attraction of some fauna was a key reason for selecting this accommodation and we quite enjoyed the antics of the various birds and large population of tortoises. We were also happy with the location; it is within comfortable walking distance of the pier and a range of restaurants/cafes. We were a little disappointed that the television didn't receive all channels and the wifi was not particularly effective.
