Stay with us and enter another world. Completely off the beaten track, our modern bright studio is set at the heart of terraced sculpture gardens with breathtaking views of the sea from its balcony or private sun deck.
Bordered by conserved wild coastal forest and with many native and tropical plants, this is a haven for birds and other wildlife created by two international environmentalists pioneering minimalist living in a natural paradise.
The Treehouse Garden Studio is set in terraced tropical gardens offering wonderful views of the Caribbean sea with its spectacular sunsets and moonsets and its rainbows as well as abundant local wildlife and especially the beautiful birds. The terraces in front of the studio are home to a variety of modern and driftwood sculptures and many fixtures and fittings in the studio have been created using local bamboo and driftwood branches. The kitchen has been hand made by local craftsmen and the shower base makes use of a recycled wooden pallet. The shower curtain is made using hand made fishing nets from fishermen on the beach below the house. A network of 15 fishpools provide an environmental solution to prevent mosquitoes breeding as the fish eat any mosquito larvae and therefore drastically reduce the mosquito population - this is in direct contrast to the common local practice of pesticide fogging. Who wants to spend their holiday in a cloud of pesticide not to mention the negative impact on local wildlife such as lizards, frogs, etc?
We are both committed environmentalists and work as advisors to local hotels to help them reduce their impact on the environment and conserve resources such as energy and water. We are also working to assist all the hotels on the island to have their waste recycled which is not the case at present. We have planted our garden to encourage birds and other wildlife onto our plot and we have left two thirds of our large property wild as a wildlife sanctuary. We are also planting many native plants in our plot which have been rescued from development areas in order to protect them from extinction.
We have a family of three black labradors who live with us and who love visitors as well as a family of four goats who keep the grass down along the roadside. We have just had two baby goat twins which are just adorable!
Also available for hire if you book it early enough is our spare car, a small 4x4 Suzuki Jimny which is ideal for the road conditions here. Let us know if you want more details.

Другие важные подробности
This is a really special opportunity to be guests in our home and experience our lifestyle.
Our property is one of the few on the island to offer a pesticide and insecticide free environment. Because of this we have abundant wildlife (frogs, lizards, moths, butterflies, birds, etc) and few mosquitos.
We also make homemade icecreams for our own consumption which we are happy to make available to our guests for a small fee to cover ingredients! Simply note down when you take an ice cream and settle up with us before leaving.
Also consider booking our 41' classic yacht which we are now renting out as a houseboat. Prices are slightly lower than booking the studio and although the boat can sleep 6 we only rent it to 2 people at a time to make sure you have lots of space. Write to us for information and photos. Or perhaps you want to travel with friends? Why not book both the Treehouse studio (sleeps 2) and the Hummingbird Hangout (sleeps 2)?
Non smoking and not suitable for children or more than one person or a couple. This is perfect for honeymooners, birdwatchers or nature lovers who like to get away from it all.
