Frangipani is a charming West Indian cottage located on the historic family run Balenbouche Estate, a former sugar plantation converted into a guesthouse, organic farm and retreat venue. Frangipani Cottage is built from beautiful reclaimed hardwood, with French doors and fretwork to allow for natural ventilation and lighting. The large bathroom includes a natural stone shower and a driftwood sink. The front porch overlooks the beautiful estate grounds and historic ruins. The Frangipani is the perfect nature getaway for singles, couples and honeymooners. However, a baby cot can also be placed in the bedroom. For older children who need a twin bed, one of our other houses is more suitable.
