The 18th-century property is former sugarcane plantation now owned by the Lawaetz family, who live in the plantation house and rent out four sweet cottages. The Frangipani guest house was constructed with 100-year-old wood from two houses in the nearby community of Fond St.-Jacques and has French doors framed by organza curtains, a veranda, and a shower made of river stones.

Insider Tip:

Anitanja Lawaetz, the family’s youngest daughter, has an on-site jewelry workshop. Her pieces—strands and clusters of seeds, shells, and stones—are a rare departure from the region’s usual shell souvenirs.
