As a second home to a British & Dominican family, Harmony Villa can be rented in its entirety as a Vacation Home when guests have its exclusive use. Welcome drink & first dinner as well as first morning's breakfast is served on the main table on the large veranda and dinners are informal and delicious, but guests must give at least 24 hours notice for additional breakfasts and dinners.
There is also the possibility of renting in our Forest Studio self contained apartment on the ground floor of the house, this is convenient for those who would rather not have a B&B stay and want a level of independence.
The owners, having worked and lived in various parts of the world offer their home as a harmonious sanctuary with an expansive veranda, which wraps around two sides of the Villa overlooking most of the 2 acres of gardens and manicured rainforest. Here you can dine, relax, chat and just simply enjoy life. A fully furnished home with many beautiful antiques, heirlooms and an extensive Caribbean Art Collection imbues an inspiring atmosphere within the villa. The vernacular architecture of the villa incorporates effective use of the environment.
The temperature is very comfortable and cooler than the coast so we do not require fans or air conditioning. The entire villa offers just over 3350 square feet of comfortable living spaces or you can find your place at one with nature anywhere within our gardens.
