We stayed 2 nights, the cabin was well equiped, clean and the bed was comfortable. Chris was very helpful with tips for walking around the area and we felt comfortable. Wifi works well at the reception area and is easy to reach. They are planning to do it for the cabins, but it is sometimes good if not everybody is...

We really liked this little cabin on the cliffs. The kitchen is well-equipped, the bathroom totally refurbished and spotlessly clean, the shower hot, and the bed comfortable (loads of pillows!). There is no WiFi in the cabins at this time, but the innkeeper says they’re working on it. (It's *really* remote out in htese parts.) Big, clean picture windows let...

Wish we could have stayed longer! Really lovely and cosy inside with some lovely touches. Really hospitable staff and great views. Didn't have a place to sit outside but it was pretty cold when we went so we were happy inside!

I would not stay here again for the following reasons: 1) Although the view is fabulous, you can't really sit outside and enjoy the view - there is simply no place to do this as the cabins are built on the side of a steep hill 2) you have to boil the water to use it - MAJOR inconvenience. 3)...

Dear Guest We are grateful for your observations about the great views, cleanliness and the service provided by our staff at Hamptons on the Bay. Thank you. We are, however, disappointed to hear that you would not stay with us again. Whilst each cabin has a separate lounge and bedroom with queen size bed, each with tremendous views of Great...

We loved our stay here in the first week of October. The water facing cabins offer dramatic views of the sea and the cliffs and it was a pleasure to spend two days here. Chris (manager) is helpful and patient with enquiries and there's little he can't help with. There is no WiFi access in the rooms and this turned...

This place is definitely the most beautiful spot I have stayed in to date! My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment. It was very convenient and self-contained. There are 2 wall windows that just face the Oyster Bay, one in the living room and the other in the bedroom. I just pulled up a chair and sat...

Warm welcome upon arrival. Great location, could've sat and stared out the window at the ocean for days. Loved hearing the waves at night and waking up to them, and the sun streaming onto our bed. Would've loved to have stayed longer and recommend a stay here.

Wow what a surprise when we arrived at the Hamptons!! Not only could we see the waves but we could hear the waves crashing.. A beautiful sound to go to sleep with every night. The cabin was very comfortable and a great place to relax. Good kitchen facilities to do your own cooking and an excellent shared BBQ. Would definitely...

This place is amazing, away from town and in its own private little nest it makes for the perfect stay. Manager was very friendly and helpful and is changing the place into what looks to be something amazing. Definitely worth the money and I couldn't recommend it enough. Nothing what's the sound of the ocean whilst your relaxing.
