The cottages are sited to make the most of their immediate surroundings. Some are notched into the hills and bluffs to catch the breeze and savor the views, most are just steps from the beach. All the buildings are naturally air-conditioned with a combination of ceiling fans, louvered windows, cool terra cotta floors and the ocean breeze. Remote and secluded as they may be, the cottages are beautifully appointed. Each cottage is built from native blue bitch stone which is quarried on the island, with peaked ceilings made of purpleheart hardwood, blending beautifully with the island’s terrain. Each cottage features a wooden sundeck, a living room, a bedroom, and one or two bathrooms and dressing rooms. The bathrooms have a shower, lots of counter space, robes, fluffy towels and a medley of Molton Brown toiletries. The two daybeds in each living room can be made up to accommodate children. In place of a telephone, in front of each cottage there is a small bamboo flagpole with a message box. Hoist the yellow flag and a member of the staff (numbering two for every guest) will come in his mini moke and pick up your message. Room service, lunch on the beach, whatever you want. Hoist the red flag, and you absolutely will not be disturbed.
