Tamarind Cottage rests on a magical garden bluff, beside a natural water course with lush plantings of tropical trees. Its elevated location lends a cool, “tree-house” feeling with its garden setting surrounded by shady trees and flowering plants—gardenia, frangipani, tamarind, mahogany, palm and fern. Steps lead you from the cottage doorway down through the garden to the breath-taking sandy white beach and pristine turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea.

Two large king size bedrooms each with their own private en-suites, are complete with remote air conditioning and ceiling fans.

The kitchen/living/ dining area of the cottage is open plan, relaxed and casual with cool floor tiles, old coral stone walls, and pickled timbers. The feeling is open and breezy with jalousie style shutters throughout. We have decorated simply to accentuate the beach house style.

A spacious wrap around verandah completes the tropical setting where you can enjoy endless days, reading, napping, and dining under the stars.

 

A Personal Note From the Original Owner

“Tamarind Cottage has always been my favorite. The coral stone blocks were given to me by the Westmoreland Great House, which was built by Quakers around 1630. I was joined by a friend from Canada, who came to build my Schooner on the beach, and he ended up fabricating all of the wood — Canadian Treated Pitch Pine. The interior has a very comforting feel as I used Church dimensions, and the size of the Coral Stone blocks regulate the temperature, along with the modified Hip Roof which is a Hurricane Proof feature. I hope this little piece of history will help you and your family enjoy Tamarind Cottage for years to come.”
