This romantic beach estate conjures up images of the historical Caribbean – let your imagination run free and indulge in fantasies of galleons and pirates and hidden contraband on your very own Black Sand Cove!
The windswept gardens, carved out of the landscape by award winning English designer Julie Toll, are a joy to behold – they capture the essence of freedom as the grasses sway in the sea breeze and the hummingbirds dart around the abundant flowers to the sound of the lapping ocean.
The picturesque main house is traditionally Caribbean with golden gingerbread trim, screened verandahs and an easy open plan living – consisting of:
Large living space, open plan to the kitchen, with a sleeper sofa and built in office snug. High vaulted ceiling, with traditional wooden awnings on all the windows and fitted with ceiling fans.
Brand new kitchen fully fitted with all appliances and granite counter tops.
Two bedrooms with ceiling fans and fitted with Air conditioning.
There are three bathrooms in the main house.
Large screened in porch (which provides additional sleeping options) from which to enjoy the spectacular views over the garden to the sea.
Furnished with a queen size bed, and fully fitted kitchenette and bathroom, this self contained one bedroom cottage is the perfect private retreat for guests.
West Indian in style, it is a smaller version or “mini me” of the main house, with high peaked ceiling, wooden awnings and a lovely porch on which to enjoy in the spectacular views of the mountain.
The cottage also has a hot tub – an ideal location from which to marvel at the spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
The gardens are landscaped to perfection and offer various areas for relaxing, hot tubbing, walking, painting or reading – the options are limitless.
It is filled with purple sea grasses, agaves, aloes and frangipanis. It is a magnet for an array of birds both local and migratory and is the perfect habitat for a myriad of colourful butterflies.
There are several pathways winding through the gardens and one leads to the wooden steps down to the secluded beach below. The beach with its wonderful glistening black sand and craggy cliff will delight both adults and children.
The garden featured in the 2011 edition of the British Magazine Homes and Garden.
There is a lovely 20‘x12’ in ground pool in the gardens, offering further scope for relaxation.
