Due to its unique setting it is perfect for central entertaining with separate sleeping arrangements, ideal for families and friends to be together, whilst still enjoying enough privacy in their own space. It has been transformed into the kind of property you will never want to leave and is truly perfect for any occasion... OVERVIEW Once a full working sugar plantation dating back to the Middle Ages, it has been completely rebuilt on the old ruins using the same stone which was once part of the property. Constructed with cobblestones and wood beams in the classic French-Mediterranean mansion-house style, it forms the centre of an incredible estate that is perfect for families and friends; ideal for any type of holiday getaway! The property features a large pool with an infinity edge waterfall, shallow kids area, natural pebbled grotto and several relaxation areas partly covered by two gazeboes for those that require shade. Gully Wells, a senior Conde Nast Travel writer, described it as one of the most beautiful she has ever seen! There is also a round outside bar above the pool area, that offers sweeping 180 degree views overlooking the Grenadine Islands that stretch Southward into the distance. Without exaggerating it is quite possibly the best view on the island. Within the main building is a large banquet style kitchen with a magnificent inside dining room area that turns into a magical setting at night. It includes a lounge with fireplace and an inside wine bar. The property consists of numerous comfortable sitting areas, terraces and balconies which are all surrounded by many acres of substantial gardens (the largest of any rental on island) made up of a plethora of international as well as local plants and trees. The entire estate is over 28 acres and leads one from the main plantation buildings all the way down to a cliff above the ocean, making it ideal also for nature lovers who enjoy hikes and beautiful scenery. Two beautiful unspoiled beaches are a relatively short hike away, with two of the best swimming beaches on the island being no more than a 10 minutes drive away. The Old Fort has been recommended by numerous international publications over the years, boasting an exceptional venue that can also host special events such as a wedding or retreat. HIGHLIGHTS The grand pool area with its shallow kids area and waterfall A hidden grotto behind the private pebbled plunge pool The round outside bar which is located just above the pool area The Sun Room with its 360-degree views and pebbled shower The Grand Fantasy Master with its library, balconies and pebbled bath tub The Honey Room with its impressive stonewalls and romantic atmosphere The Planters Room with its wooden floors and historic feel (the only bedroom which was partly standing when the rebuild began) Ancient cisterns and catchments where one can relax and/or star gaze at night Majestic property gardens, which also consist of a variety of different fruit trees and palms The historic artefact tray displaying a number of items discovered whilst excavating the property Several patios, terraces and large outside sitting areas which all have amazing views The large banquet kitchen which is ideal for group and family vacations A 28-acre estate which offers hiking trails and numerous viewing spots above the ocean The grand lounge with its majestic fireplace and intimate inside wine bar area AVAILABLE SERVICES The pre-arrival stocking of groceries; Courteous staff including housekeeping (the basic service is twice weekly); Gourmet chef services offering one-of-a-kind meals; The property’s own 40 foot power boat, which can be chartered anytime; Shuttle service to the beach or any other location on the island; Wireless broadband internet in and around the property (included); Additional staff services available upon request; We are very flexible, let us know your requirements and we would happily accommodate you!More

Interaction with guests
We heartily welcome all guests to this special place and promise to do our very best in making a vacation with us as extraordinary as possible. Christmas Eve 2020 marked my parents 42nd year of arriving on the island. This gives us a knowledge of the area which is unparalleled and translates into a level of service which only we can offer, due to the many connections we have made over the years. Should you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to contact us anytime.

Overall this flat/apartment was excellent. Very clean, modern, in a great location (for tube & parks). Rooms were of a good size, and the courtyard was great (and would have been used more had the weather been nicer!). There was a high chair available to...More

About the neighbourhood
Mt. Pleasant is arguably the safest and most private area on the island. Although it is extremely private, a short drive will take you to the best beaches and places of activity on the island. One could also take a beautiful hike through the estate to two unspoiled beaches which are only short distance away. The area also boasts the best view on the island stretching 180 degrees over the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea, down the Grenadines to Grenada, another island country which one can see on a clear day. Fresh breezes rise up from the Atlantic below which help keep the property free of mosquitos and cool throughout the day. Places such as these don't exist much anymore, quite simply we do not lock doors and windows at night.
Getting around
Although we are located in what is arguably the safest and most private area on the island, it is still easily accessible. Guests can use one of the island's reasonable and reliable taxis, or reserve our shuttle service before they arrive on the island. It generally takes 5 - 10 minutes to drive to the best beaches and places of activity on the island. Guests also have the option to book a rental vehicle if they prefer to have their own transport.
