I was using a walker and the help was great getting me around. This place is located on a hill. Chef Lawson was excellent host and we had some interesting island food. My wife went on the tour and said it was outstanding. we came on Holland America's Maasdam

This was a really pleasant surprise for us. Have visited island destination for 7 days, we decided to try something that was not water or sand based as a shore excursion. We generally don't book onboard excursions, but this caught our eye when we reviewed the options. It was great. We thought it would be a visit to the home... More

My boyfriend and I went on a rum tasting tour here. The plantation is really beautiful, has a great garden, and a beautiful view of the ocean. The drive over was scenic along the coast; the driver was able to tell us a lot about the island's culture and history. The tour guide at the plantation was knowledgeable about the... More

Once again, this is a local treasure with beautiful views and gardens. We so enjoyed our time with Local leaders including then Labour member of parliament Dwyer Astaphan and hearing from Prime Minister Douglas and Deputy Prime Minister Sam Condor. We were always treated so nicely by both PAM and Labour and wish them all a vibrant Democracy.

Visited on a cruise ship day so expected it to be busy but there was only 1 other car and a van. Drive up to the property was easy but first impression was not good at all. Alongside the road of a big open space where we parked there was a long line of small plants and a palm tree... More

My husband and I drove up early to the house and were rewarded by being the only visitors. The young lady who greeted us at the front gate was extremely welcoming and gave us a bit of background regarding the house. The restoration is fantastic and has obviously been done with love and care, you can feel the history in... More

We visited the Great House early one morning, it was very quiet and tranquil. Our guide gave us a five minute talk about the Great House and then left us to wander and explore on our own. The house has been very tastefully restored, with original furnishings, and the gardens contain many interesting plants. We only had coffee in the... More
