    Description

    We built the house 2 years ago for us to live in when on island. It is all wood construction (local) with very high ceilings.

    All the doors open out on to a deep balcony which runs the full length of the house. This is where we spend most of our time.
    The ensuite studios are bright and airy with high ceilings and tiled floors with 2 sets of double doors opening out onto a balcony which is perfect for eating alfresco..

    The sea and the sunsets can be seen from the beds in all the rooms!
    In the garden there are plenty of banana plants, mango trees and we are gradually landscaping and planting more exotic flowering plants and bushes as and when we can. It was virgin forest before we built and so we get a lot of birds visiting us. The lower balcony is especially good for star gazing.

    At all times we have use locally sourced materials and local craftsmen and labour. Almost every man and boy in the village has worked on our house at sometime or other.

    We are still adding to the house and making improvements as we feel the need to. No rushing things in the Caribbean.
    We have just, June 09, constructed an outside bbq area in the shade of a huge banana plant by the side of the house for all our guests and us to share. With great fresh fish everyday and local produce it will be used all the time I think.

    The idea was for us to have a house to live in and share with friends and family. Then other people asked about coming to stay so then we have an income as well, perfect.

    So far it is working out just fine and all who have stayed there have fallen in love with the village, it's people and the house which is very satisfying..We love it and hope you will as well.
