Our rooms

There are king-sized double and twin rooms which are all en suite and also a self-contained apartment. In total the house can accommodate 12 guests. Any bedroom will be available as a single room if required.

The apartment has an open plan kitchen/living area with a private balcony that has a sea view. The apartment bedroom will have a four poster king sized bed and already has a large walk in wardrobe and shower room.

The house is detached and has three levels. The top level is for the wardens private residence. On the middle floor is a small courtyard, a dining/living room area, two kitchens, a laundry area and a pantry. There will be a library and a chapel/quiet room. There is a large balcony area on this floor overlooking the sea. The garage will be converted into an art/creative workshop space which opens onto the garden. There is parking space and the house is on a very quiet road. The house sits on half an acre of gently sloping land which offers various places to sit and enjoy the sea view. There are some fruit trees in the garden such as bananas, limes and papayas. Meals will be simple, home-cooked food which is locally sourced and will be served as self-service, buffet style. Special diets will be catered for where possible but this may be limited due to the availability of specialised food on the island and the small size of the retreat house. Guests may be full board, self-catering or something in between.
