Fodor's Review

These stylish oceanfront wooden cabins and luxurious chalets are about as close to the beach as you'll get; the surf rolls in just beyond the dunes, the air has a salty tang, and the sky is filled with wheeling seabirds. Even if you're at the back of the camp the outlook is rural and restful, given the centrally located grassy paddock where alpaca, goats, sheep, and pigs graze. The kids (and big kids) will love these placid guys. Cabins have personal verandas, and chalets have full kitchens and a few are equipped with whirlpool baths. There are also campsites, including powered sites for campervans, a clean and well-equipped shared kitchen, barbecue areas, and a children's playground. There's even a glowworm dell just out the back; take a look when it gets dark. A continental breakfast is available on request.
