Every room is out-fitted with air conditioning, beautiful panel ceiling fans, en-suite bathrooms, walk in wardrobes and flat screen TV’s. Each room is unique in its design and layout, the décor has a very English Baroque feel to it with heavy drapery and ornate rugs co-existing alongside beautifully made mahogany and oak pieces.

The upper level houses very tastefully designed bedrooms, all with arresting views of the manicured grounds. The “Bajan Suite” or Master Suite, has its own private terrace overlooking the stunning garden and swimming pool below. It is elegant and private with a beautiful 4 poster king size bed alongside gorgeous mahogany armoires and vanities, giving it that special old-world Caribbean charm. The Ocean Suite and Monkey Suites are equipped with two twin beds fitted in crisp white linens and corresponding décor to match the themes suggested in the names, such as a monkey lamp and wall art, tropical fish dresser and light fixtures all with little jungle animal accents. These youthful artistic touches make these suites ideal for families with young children.
The suites on the lower level provide the very same luxurious furnishings with light crisp fabrics juxtaposed with heavy antique accents, providing a grand yet understated elegance. The Garden Suite is the only room which allows full access to the exquisite lawns and garden directly from the room itself, with beautiful doors opening onto the expansive poolside terrace. The open spaces and airy, feel is a compliment to this exceptional villa, as one wanders from room to room engaged in awe at the beautiful art adorning the walls. Every room has something beautiful to offer.
