This perfectly formed, luxury cabin strikes a contemporary design, with exceptional attention to detail throughout. The porthole windows and door perfectly frame the spectacular views, like a captivating work of art.

The innovative design makes excellent use of the space, with separate sleeping and living quarters, offering comfortable accommodation for up to four guests. The cabin includes an open plan living space, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The living space comprises of a stylish kitchen area, which is cleverly separated from the living area, with a breakfast bar style, high table.
