Description from owner

Description

Windy Edge was designed and built by a former US ambassador to Japan and it is still known on the island as the Ambassador's House. Set on the top of Cinnamon Hill, it has sensational views over the Caribbean and Atlantic seas and catches the cooling breezes, unlike many coastal properties. It is a large well-designed home with high ceilings and ceiling fans, all the windows have adjustable aluminium louvred slats for security and are netted against insects. The whole house has recently been redecorated to a high standard throughout.

It is a spacious high ceilinged house, with large airy living and dining rooms, it sleeps up to 10, having five double bedrooms. 3 of the bedrooms have en suite facilities 2 bedrooms share a bathroom, making 4 bathrooms in total. A wide veranda surrounds the house with extensive al fresco dining area, barbecue, comfortable seating areas, and table tennis. The house stands in 2.5 acres of mature grounds with many tropical fruit trees for guests to enjoy and a good-sized pool (16'x32') which is serviced 3 times a week. 6-day maid service with cooking/babysitting if required. Gardens are well-maintained, safe for children and toddlers, and are home to many varieties of exotic birds and butterflies. Beaches, restaurents and shops are all within easy reach.

The Ambassador's House was built on the site of the original plantation house for the Concordia Estate, a large estate producing cocoa and sugar. Many fragments of European china have been found in the ground around the house and these have been dated to around 1850 indicating that the plantation manager who came from Scotland had his own china shipped from home. Some of the fruit trees date back to the 1960s and are interesting varieties rarely seen nowadays, others have been planted by the owner who is a keen gardener. For anyone interested in plants or birds this place is a source of endless joy.

Further details indoors

All bedrooms are light and comfortable with ceiling fans, access to verandas and beautiful views over garden and beyond. The accommodation is spacious throughout the house, with high ceilings, ceiling fans and access to the wide veranda from all rooms via sliding doors. All meals can be taken on the wide veranda. There is an extensive library of books and collection of board games to keep children and adults amused. Table tennis on the veranda. Internet access (wifi) is available at no extra charge. The kitchen is well equipped with large cooker, microwave, toaster, food processor, juicer, coffee makers, 2 fridges and freezer plus dishwasher. Sheets and towels are changed twice a week, a washing machine is available for guests' use.

Further details outdoors

Beautiful mature grounds extending to 2.5 acres. Many species of tropical flowers and fruit trees which attract a wide diversity of birds. Pool has internal and external lighting for evening swimming. Secluded but not isolated, you are perfectly placed for visiting all parts of the island. Many visitors staying in the tourist areas in the west of the island rarely get to see more than a day's trip round the island, but from The Ambassadors House at Windy Edge it is a short drive across the hills to the Caribbean coast where there are many beautiful unspoilt beaches and little fishing villages to explore. Our friendly local naturalist will pick guests up from the house and take you birdwatching in the rainforest to see the dancing Mannakins or the brightly coloured Trogon. There are many other activites including scuba diving and snorkelling around Little Tobago, golf at one of the 2 high quality courses on the island, or a boat trip up the coast with swimming, snorkelling and barbecue on the beach. On the Atlantic coast you can drive up to the far end of the island with spectacular views round every corner, certain beaches on this side are not safe for bathing so take care and follow local advice. For shopping there are several good supermarkets nearby and Scarborough has a wonderfully vibrant market for fruit and vegetables and many other things. From the house you will hear the sound of the Conch shell which the fishermen blow to tell people they have brought in a catch for sale.There is a wide variety of restaurents all within easy reach of the house, and details of these can be found on our website,

“An ideal family getaway that isn't far away”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2013

Spacious yet cozy, a place where you can be noisy without disturbing the peace or find a secluded spot whilst everyone else is partying. We had a large group and everyone was comfortably accommodated. The location was very private yet close to all amenities. Just be careful of what's left outside as 'Goldy' would surely get hold of it.

Response from the owner Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, sadly Goldie is no longer with us. Come back soon.
