An historic hillside retreat built in 1700s, the story of Mangrove Plantation is woven into Barbados' history. The former residence of Governor Skeete, this property lay in ruins until it was rediscovered in 2000 and lovingly restored to create a luxurious and comfortable family home with swimming pool and tropical gardens. Mangrove Plantation covers 25 acres of prime land and has uninterrupted views across cane fields and wooded gullies towards the Caribbean Sea, which is only 10 minutes drive away.

The main house beautifully echoes the property's historic past while tasteful upgrades have enhanced its original features. The finest quality fittings have been sourced from Europe, America and the West Indies to create a comfortable and stylish home that combines colonial elegance with twenty-first century convenience. There are 5 bedrooms in the main residence and 2 in the guest cottage. There are also 4.5 bathrooms in the main residence and 1 bedroom in the guest cottage.

The carriage house has been transformed from a working building into an elegant, self-contained guest cottage. Preservation of the natural stone walls has given an inviting, natural feel to the main rooms. Internal gardens bring sunlight and fresh breezes into the heart of the house. Glass doors open from the dining room directly onto the pool deck and both bedrooms have private balconies.

The mill has been restored to create a space to relax, entertain and be inspired by the stunning panoramic views. A mahogany staircase spirals up from the ground floor lounge and bar to the observatory 30 feet above. From here, the unrivalled 360 degree views of the island and west coast are simply breathtaking. There is no better place to watch birds and monkeys play in the trees, see the sun set over the Caribbean, or enjoy a refreshing cocktail while watching ships passing at sea.

Directions

Located in St. Peter, approximately 10 minutes' drive from the island's west coast and 30 minutes' drive from the capital city, Bridgetown.
