This is a 1600 acre former sugar plantation now leased out to interests ranging from orchid growing to cattle rearing and the production of coconut oil. We stayed in the Estate House and were the only guests as it happened so had the place to ourselves. We were well looked after by the Estate Manager, Elaine and the housekeeper, Laurie. Food was local, freshly prepared and delicious. The accommodation was clean & comfortable. The gardens are beautifully maintained and guests are free to wander along the extensive tracks leading to different parts of the estate. There is a swimming pool. An excellent venue for birdwatchers, the estate boasts a very respectable list of birds recorded there. Fully recommended for someone looking for a slightly different break.
