Wheelhouse Inn provides 5 different units. We had the Charthouse top floor which is spacious and modern with views to kill. The only thing we missed was a verandah, though a seating place in the garden with slightly obstructed views made up for it. Overall it was a fantastic place with friendly and helpful hosts and we loved our stay.

The stunning views are the first thing that we noticed. Our unit was neat and clean as a pin. Very well appointed, everything on hand for eating in and just relaxing. Bedrooms and bathroom are very well appointed . Greeted on arrival by host, much appreciated. Steep access, however very clear instructions regarding car turning, parking etc.
