Holiday Rental House
The Banyan House is located on the 60 acre historic family run Balenbouche plantation guesthouse and nature heritage site. Is the largest of our 5 cottages, offering two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room with two single beds, kitchen and veranda. The Banyan is ideal for a family or group of close friends traveling together. The natural wood walls and hardwood floors provide a warm and cozy feel, and the many beautiful West Indian and Asian-inspired design elements, add to its unique charm. The 1365 sq feet house is surrounded by tropical gardens and looks out onto a 200 year old banyan tree. The original 2 room structure was built in the 1960’s, and served as a home for the former estate caretaker and his family.The outdoor shower built with natural stone and the bath tub with a view...The Banyan House is located on the 60 acre historic family run Balenbouche plantation guesthouse and nature heritage site.

The kitchen is equipped with basic cooking utensils as well as a gas stove, oven and full size fridge. Breakfast at the main Plantation house is available for US$ 12 per person, and dinner by reservation 2-4 times a week. A restaurant is within walking distance, several local restaurants and shops are a 5 - 20 minute drive away. Many local attractions including hiking, snorkeling, waterfalls, hot springs, whale watching, kite and wind surfing are just a 30 minute drive away. The best way to explore the island is with a rental car, but a combination of taxis and buses is also possible.More

About the neighbourhood
A restaurant is within walking distance, several local restaurants and shops are a 5 - 20 minute drive away. Many local attractions including hiking, snorkeling, waterfalls, hot springs, whale watching, kite and wind surfing are just a 30 minute drive away.
Getting around
The best way to explore the island is with a rental car, which we can help arrange. A combination of taxis and buses is also possible. The town of Soufriere with the famous Pitons and many attractions is only a 30 minute drive away, the town of Vieux Fort with shopping and banking facilities and a beautiful white sand beach is a 20 minute bus or car ride. The affordable local mini buses do not have a schedule and stop anywhere along the route.
