"Carpenter Cottage" - located in Windwardside, on the main road, with a view of the village, mountains, and ocean.
I operated from here as PJ6/PA3GIO/p with 2x10M.
The runway is 400 metres long, one of the smallest in the world. The road to Hell's Gate from the airport climbs a good two and a half kilometres and has twenty sharp curves! (Click the pictures to enlarge them.)
