Owner description: This old plantation estate houses the Caribelle Batik works. You can watch colorful, tie-dye clothes being made.

we were there for only half an hour which was way too short! the caribelle batik shop was really interesting and HOT! the woman that were doing the demonstration were used to the heat but for guests it was extreme, an evening visit would be nice when it was cooler. beautiful items to look at and buy, a very busy place. what we saw of the grounds looked very inviting and wished we had more time to look around. this is definitely a place i would go back to when i had a little more time to spend

Set in meticulously crafted and maintained grounds is a botanical paradise tropical blooms, exotic palms, flowering shrubs ,and Delicate orchids offer a riot of colour while humming birds and egrets and wandering green vervet monkeys go their merry way. Love to go back there again.

Beautiful and breathtaking foliage. It's like a little slice of Heaven in paradise! Lots of photo opportunities around the grounds.

We were unable to get near the sugar plantation area and had to fight the crowds to get near the caribelle batik shop and a walk around the garden. Might be worth the trip on a day when no cruise ships are in port.

Well worth the drive. At one time owned by the great, great, great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson. The grounds and plantings are lovely. Fun to watch as they produce batik products. Prices, quality, and selection seemed quite reasonable.
