Fabulous plantation house with great pool, shade and grounds to explore.
The owner has plans for development of 600 acres running down to the sea, so all the organic coconut oil production we were expecting to see has disappointingly been closed down with all local labour made redundant. Guess that's progress!
We were well looked after by Elaine, the estate manager, and a housekeeper. Everyone was very friendly.
One of our day's was spent on an all day, hot, guided walk from the plantation to the Black Beach and on to a fantastic waterfall/blue lagoon - not to be missed and definitely worth the slog.
If you like small, quiet places with a foot in history, then this is a place for you.
