Crystal Versailles chandeliers at either end of the room elegantly illuminate the tray ceiling. To one side there is a seated living area with comfortable sofas and lounge chairs, and French doors lead you to the adjacent gazebo with its soothing fountain. On the opposite side of the room is the dinning area, with a mirrored buffet used for elegant dinners and afternoon English tea. A plantation style desk unites these areas, allowing you to enjoy the tradewinds and theCaribbean Seabeyond.

The Courtyard

Large Mahogany louvered doors open onto the loggia and courtyard. The furnishings include upholstered sofas and chairs, and a dining/ game table. Ceiling fans with chandelier lights suggest the Colonial period. The focal point of the courtyard is a three tiered coral stone fountain with carved dolphins.
