The Antigua Suite is one of two, two bedroom suites at the Plantation House. It is in a class all it's own.

Together with the antique patterned floor, and the antique styled furniture pieces, the Plantation House will take you back to the Victorian era with style and elegance. Apart from the master bedroom, there is a large mezzanine looking over the dining and living areas. It consists of a sitting area with an Antique styled sofa or single bed, then another area used as a second bedroom with a queen-size bed, plus a powder room and closet. The dining area holds a large rustic table able to accommodate eight dinner guests if necessary. From the dining and living areas there are two sets of eight foot tall louvered French doors that open to a private wooden deck tucked under the trees, where you can peek though the foliage on to the illuminated pool and listen to the fountain from your swinging hammock. This area is is covered and is Antigua's comfortable solution to our smoking guests as we like to keep the interior living areas smoke free.More

Interaction with guests
Both Françoise and I are happy to assist with your vacation needs. Before and during your stay. I am living near by, year round and easily accessible by a telephone in the courtyard. I enjoy meeting our new guests and sharing some tips with them. I generally don't come knocking on your door in respect of your privacy and rest. Our maid Virginia or Lurdes are very trustworthy and will come by to clean your suite a few times in the week. You can request that she come at an earlier or later time of day up until 3pm.

A nice place with plenty of space for the family. The location is quiet, away from the main 5th Avenue activities but still good access to most amenities. Our tour operators and taxi drivers found it difficult to find. The pool is very small and...More

About the neighbourhood
Perfectly located - In a residential area within the heart of the chic tourist area of down town Playa. Just one block from beach - 100 meters, and also a block from the famous 5th ave, pedestrian walkway. The Antigua suite is on the ground floor of the rear building - it is very quiet!
Getting around
Since we are s well located. Walking will get you to most interests in town. If you want to explore further down the coast. We can suggest several options like hiring a taxi, bus, or colectivo. Sometimes renting a car for a day or two is helpful too.
