Greeting you as you walk into the entrance of the main house is a carved two-headed jaguar beneath a large painting of tropical banana plants. Doors to the left lead to steps to the garden and pool. Straight ahead is the living area, dining room, kitchen and a spacious veranda with a panoramic view of the sea.
The three guest rooms are upstairs. All have ensuite baths and are air conditioned to ensure a comfortable night's sleep.
- The Concord, on the front corner, has a queen sized bed and two large windows facing the sea. It opens directly onto the large terrace with stairs leading down to the garden.
- The Carlisle, with its own private balcony, also has a queen sized bed and overlooks the sea, pool and valley.
- The Lexington has two twin beds which, with the addition of another mattress, convert to king sized. It has a view of the hillside garden and opens to a short walkway leading to the terrace and stairs.
There is also a sitting area upstairs with a large collection of books and games.
Operating as a bed and breakfast from November through April, guests can wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee or tea and enjoy a home made meal to start their day. Other meals are available at restaurants nearby, or can be provided on site by prior arrangement. Rooms in the main house can be rented individually or all together by larger groups. It is an ideal spot for family reunions!
There is also a separate smaller house on the property, Essex Cottage, which has two bedrooms, each with an ensuite bath. This cottage is situated against the side of the hill. Our idea was to create a tree house, open to the view of sea and birds. There is a queen sized bed upstairs and two twin beds downstairs. An outside staircase connects the downstairs bedroom. The cottage has large porch and fully equipped kitchen and is rented on a self-catering basis. Guests have full access to the pool and gardens.
