Testimonials

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ocean Mist, a beautiful holiday home in a fantastic location. We particularly loved the rugged scenery around The Gap and Natural Bridge - even better than the north coast of Cornwall! But also the tranquility of Frenchman,s Bay - a delightful spot for a picnic. Sail-away p revised some close encounters with whales, including a very young calf - newborn, according to John, the Skipper... Hope to be back one day, Thank you for all the lovely touches!
