A beautiful restored house in an idyllic position surrounded by a botanical garden full of interesting blooms with green and red dragonflies. There were places to sit all round the garden including a gazebo. The guide gave us valuable information about the house and it's history. This is a multi use venue and a cookery school was taking place and... More

For Caribbean cruising, we tend not to do a lot of ship tours. But this tour offered on the Maasdam caught our attention. After an interesting ride from the port, we arrived at Fairview, a stately old plantation house. We began with a nicely-narrated tour of the house and facilities, learned some of its history and built up a hearty... More

After considering visiting a number of plantation houses we chose to visit this rebuilt country house estate and gardens due to its proximity to Port Zante cruise port terminal. The house was quite nice as were the surrounding gardens but at 10 dollars each entry was poor value for money.

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

We went to Fairview Great House as a shore excursion on an Oceania Cruise on the ship Insignia. The cooking experience was put on by Chef Lawson. He was an wonderful instructor and share some terrific recipes. He cooked 5 or 6 different dishes and gave us all the recipes and when the cooking demo was over we all got... 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
