Villa and Cottages in beautiful tropical garden
Hibiscus Retreat (formerly Hibiscus villa) comprises of three properties named after local Caribbean spices set and designed within beautiful landscaped gardens. The largest property is 'The Cinnamon Lodge' a luxury 3 bed roomed property. Secondly, Nutmeg cottage a comfortable but sizeable studio. Finally the newly built as of February 2015 'The Ginger Roots Cabin', is a smaller but extremely romantic wooden cottage and kitchenette ideal for a couple or single travellers. All the properties are fully and tastefully furnished and share a small swimming pool decking area. The properties are laid out within a carefully and lovingly landscaped tropical garden set in a quarter acre of some of the most beautiful flora and fauna you will find anywhere in the Caribbean. Cinnamon Lodge the main house in Hibiscus Retreat sleeps 6 people. Nutmeg Cottage sleeps a couple or a young family of 4, (it has a large queen size bed and a double sofa bed). The Ginger Love Cabin sleeps a couple and has a large queen size bed. Hibiscus Retreat is exactly that, a special place where you can come and de-stress and relax in my garden around beautiful palms, brightly coloured oleanders which provide welcome shade. Admire the majesty of the sea grapes, and of course marvel at the beautiful hibiscus flower can be found in abundance within this garden hence the name. There are lots of fruit trees as well ranging from lime, shaddocks, avocados, and papayas are plentiful. Hibiscus garden is home to several species of local birds including hummingbirds, and if you are lucky, these busy little birds may entertain you during your day as you watch them flying from flower to flower in search of nectar. Come and be my guest, relax in the refreshing pool and chill out on the pool deck which is completely private and sip a cool and refreshing drink. Lounge and unwind in the garden with a drink and feel the cool trade winds against your skin. The only thing you'll need to concern yourself with as you forget about your busy life back home is 'shall I have more ice' with that.TripAdvisor property ID 3816120...Read more

We stayed here for 12 nights and didn't want to leave. The villa is in an ideal location that is close to St Johns, Dickenson Bay and supermarkets. Beautiful garden and a lovely swimming pool that we used a few times every day. The villa is a good size and has everything that you need plus more. The furnishings and appliances etc are of a high standard. It is an ideal retreat for a relaxing holiday or if you want to adventure out and about nothing is too far away. We would love to go back sometime and stay here again...wouldn't even consider anywhere else. I would recommend this villa to everyone! Whether young or mature, a couple or a family, this villa suits all. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

This villa is located north of the island in a quiet residential area 5 minute drive away from St John's, airport is not far, golf course is around the corner and you have 365 beaches waiting for you, in general nothing seems that far on the island. Villa is surrounded by a lush, blooming garden and the crystal clear pool saves you on a hot sunny day, there is a outdoor showher, too. Both houses come with a full kitchen, bed linen, towels all the basics including TV, landline and wifi. Ps wifi does not work in the cottage. It's all very clean and if there's any problems they get solved fast after a phone call tho don't forget you are in Caribbean not in a city and sometimes things can be on a slow side. It was a great base to explore this wonderful island and I would definitely go back
