Beautiful older home. We went there as part of a group for a rum tasting. 7 different flavors. Some were a lot better than others. Doreen, our hostess was very friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend this tour.

They said locals do show up and enjoy the bar area. Didn't look like they stopped you from exploring the grounds.
