The Retreat is a unique Caribbean style home, reminiscent of the island days of Flynn and
Hemingway, nestled in lush native gardens. The incredibly beautiful Grace Bay Beach is 190 steps
down a manicured path. The freestanding yoga deck looks out to the turquoise sea and the pearl
necklace of the reef. As you pass thru the white picket gate into the serenity of 25 year old gardens
you will feel the magic serenity of this well loved property
The main house, originally built in 1987, has evolved from a small beach cottage to a
delightful ramble of indoor & outdoor spaces, surrounded by greenery & filled
with a superb collection of Caribbean art and antiques.. It was completely renovated this summer.
Travertine & brightly painted wooden floors invite barefeet and the multitude of decks make room
for several simultaneous activities. Naturally cooled, the house is sited to catch the breezes and view
the ocean from under the shade of the sea pines.
Sleeping accommodations are in the Main house w/ two en suite pods, The Cottage & The Villa.
The Villa is furnished w/ a queen bed, chest of drawers, hanging closet, couch & coffee maker & microwave and fridge. TV and video library. The room is cooled with ceiling and floor fans. A shower bathroom is one step up. French doors open to a small patio garden. The Villa is a retreat in its own right and may occasionally be rented separately

Toilet & sink indoors, the shower is in a private surround under the Poinciana tree by the door. A twin bed, chest of drawers & reading chair complete this room with A/C and ceiling fan.

The Retreat on Grace Bay was envisaged as a center and gathering point for yoga and meditation
retreats with additional accommodation at adjacent houses.. It serves equally well for family and friend gatherings, weddings and just hanging out.
Please note we have resident cats who are cared for by the staff and geckos behind paintings.
