On 220 private acres of former banana and coconut plantation stretching from mountain to sea, Wild Orchid is a glamorous and luxurious hideaway in the tropics.
The Georgian design of the new mansion captures the ambiance and grace of the original plantation enhanced by modern amenities of air-conditioned bedrooms, state-of-the-art kitchen and baths, satellite dish and lighted tennis court. Interiors are adorned by Oriental rugs, unique hand-laid tiles and custom cedar accents. The comfortable covered verandah is furnished with large bamboo sofas and chairs covered in white canvas.
Five acres of manicured lawns and gardens surround the villa and open to the greater property where guests can stroll, jog and be close to nature. In past centuries, men loaded bananas onto ships 300 yards downhill from the house.
In true Colonial style, Wild Orchid is meticulously staffed so that guests are pampered through sunny days and relaxed evenings with memorable home-cooked meals served in the spacious indoor dining area or on the large open verandah under the almond trees cooled by the tradewinds. The night view from Wild Orchid is breathtaking especially from the al fresco dining terrace. The Wild Orchid villa and grounds provide a superbly spacious and photogenic location for weddings, receptions and honeymoons.
