Imagine waking up in a comfy bed and opening your eyes to the view of majestic icebergs. You enter the living room, take a seat on the couch and watch small fishing boats cruising lazily past in the crystal clear water. You're enjoying a cup of coffee on the terrace to the view of a whale family swimming by elegantly, the spray of their blowholes glimmering in the sunlight.
