This charming plantation-style house combines the look of a traditional Caribbean home with all the benefits of modern-day architecture and living. With expansive views of the windward side of the island, Antiqua and Montserrat, it is set on the slopes of Mount Nevis enjoying the natural Atlantic breezes. Constructed with West Indian wooden floors and beams, it has high ceilings, a spacious open plan living area and an extensive porch overlooking the ocean. The twin-gabled guest cottage, also built in the spirit of the nearby Hermitage Plantation Inn, provides privacy and comfort and, like the main house, has wonderful uninterrupted views.
