About the neighbourhood
A Quiet up-scale neighbourhood. You can see and hear the ocean, which is just a 1/2 Kilometre away. You'll hear the waves lapping at the shore, the bird singing their song, and most of all, you'll hear, 'The Quiet'. Our grounds are manicure and we have both flower and vegetable gardens. We also have a small banana patch and passion vines along with other fruit trees. We know all our neighbours and they are all quiet, and we respect each other's privacy.
Getting around
Mini Car Rentals for 2 persons.' Localmotion Ltd', 'Current Vehicles', or 'Oleander Cycles'. Mopeds are a good form of transport. We can arrange delivery for you. However, if you are not confident on 2 wheels, we would not recommend that you try this. The roads nowadays are very busy and can be dangerous. Bus: 2 Routes to choose from, going both east and west. Bus stops are a 5 to 7 minute walk away. Pink pole denotes towards Hamilton and Blue poles denote away from Hamilton. We have parking on the property. Plus we have a charging station which you may charge overnight for a minimal fee. Taxis are sometimes hard to come by, so please book in advance.
