The cottages are beautifully set into the forest, providing great privacy. There's a lot on the property, including a short but moderately challenging climb at the rear of the property up to an excellent Piton view. There are hummingbirds abounding and lots of interesting plants growing around the property. Clinton gave us a very animated plantation tour. We had a...
