The Main House & Studio are a dream for entertaining; for private events, weddings, business retreats and family holidays and reunions. The property is widely known as one of three of the finest properties in the Caribbean.
The home itself is an architectural masterpiece. The entire property was designed for the ultimate in privacy beginning with a custom-designed, owner- built, two-acre estate with an homage to Feng Shui design throughout —optimizing the most comfortable, natural, island living by positioning the home to face the famous CaribbeanTrade Winds, capturing the sunrise and sunsets’ expansive 360’ views which offer both the seaside and the islands as well as the only privately owned, exotic botanical gardens.
You’re comfort and pleasure are assured when you step into an open-air communal room featuring solid mahogany crown moldings & double-wide, hand-carved doors, numerous eucalyptus overhead fans, wrap-around very large windows framing the aqua Caribbean and the British Virgin Islands in a breathtakingly serene space that’s perfect for entertaining, gathering, cooking and relaxing after a day on the sea or the beach. Weather you’re a couple or two sharing the East and West wings of the Main House, you have plenty of room for your extra friends or family in the Guest House.
Catering in the gourmet kitchen is a cook’s delight. Foodies love the Kitchen Aid appliances and the easy traffic flow throughout the kitchen and into the large dining area that overlooks the gathering space with exits to the breezeway and to the extra wide, covered balcony running the length of the entire home and extending all the way to the deck for dining, ‘Al fresco’!
Upon awakening Guests love touring the botanical gardens with a cup of coffee or tea. You’ll discover yourself immersed in so much vibrant color, so many unbelievably exotic plants, surreal looking flowers in a papaya forest with teal iridescent hummingbirds and bright green parrots greeting you, that you can’t help but to just breathe in and deeply relax. In so much magnificent nature; there is an energy here that actually feels wonderful:-)
