A traditional st lucia bungalow inspired by Asian design
The Banyan is the largest of our 5 cottages, offering three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and veranda. The natural wood walls and hardwood floors give this st lucia bungalow a warm and cozy feel. The many beautiful West Indian and Asian-inspired design elements, such as fretwork and exotic tapestries and décor add to its unique charm. The 1365 sq feet house is surrounded by tropical gardens and looks out onto a 200 year old banyan tree. The original 2 room structure was built in the 1960’s, and served as a home for the former estate caretaker and his family. Because many families and groups rent the Banyan, the living room often serves as a third bedroom. The master bedroom has a king bed and the adjoining bedroom a queen bed. The living room has an antique four poster bed and twin bed/sofa. The bathrooms in this st lucia bungalow are quite open and not very separate, making them more suitable for families and close friends to share. The outdoor shower built with natural stone and the bath tub with a view is always a favorite. The kitchen is equipped with basic cooking utensils as well as a gas stove, oven and full size fridge.
