Exceeds Expectations. The Epitome of Luxury Living in Barbados!

"A decorator's dream! An inspiration to anybody with an interest in aesthetics and Caribbean history. Charming beyond words." - Reviewed by Lisa

Welcome to unarguably one of the West Indies’ finest traditional homes!

Conceived by legendary designer, Oliver Messel in the 1960s and completely restored in 2014, this home represents the epitome of luxury Barbados living. From the moment you set eyes on the elegant façade, to the second you understand the magnitude of the lush private grounds, to the first sound of the waves lapping on the golden sand beach, to the visual feast furnished by the stylish décor – you know you are experiencing another level of hospitality.

Combining theater with nature is a delicate balance which is reflected at its best throughout the 6 beautiful buildings cleverly nestled amongst the grounds. The multitude of places to dine, to relax, to entertain and even to exercise offset the innumerable styles in which to conduct those pursuits. From black-tie soirées to catch-and-eat picnics on board the resident speedboat, all can be executed with panache and élan.
