Windwardside Guest Cottage

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Windwardside Guest Cottage is an adorable little cottage from which you can savor the views of the east end of St. John, the Caribbean sea and the nearby British islands. The cottage can be rented along with the neighboring Main House or as your own piece of paradise. The buildings are secluded from one another by their orientation and lush tropical plantings that provide natural screening. and plenty of privacy. The guest cottage is very appealingly furnished, has a private hot tub, an airy enclosed shower garden and a comfortable front porch overlooking the sea.

We constructed this cottage with the goal of providing a romantic getaway at an affordable price that is packed with amenities. It is a compact budget cottage with numerous storage areas that won’t make you feel like you have made any compromises. At Windwardside Cottage you will wake up in a four poster bed to a gorgeous view of the Caribbean sea framed by palm trees. You could easily create a post card from the view of this charming cottage.

The furnishings of Windwardside Guest Cottage are both cheerful and tasteful. There is a small seating area, a kitchenette and breakfast bar but our guests tend to quickly gravitate to the porch. The covered porch has a dining area and two lounging chairs where you can enjoy the trade winds or a good book while watching the sailboats pass by. If you prefer to prepare your meals overlooking the sea there is a small gas grill.

A shower garden opens onto an uncovered deck. There you can have a relaxing evening soak in the hot tub under a starry Caribbean sky. The hot tub has a wide view of the sea and total privacy.

Windwardside is a lovely honeymoon spot. We are also happy to provide advice for on island weddings.

Why You Should Stay in East London

Author: , December 11th, 2013

East LondonLondon is a big, big city and because of that, it can be overwhelming to decide where to stay. On my numerous visits to London, I’ve stayed in quite a few different neighborhoods but far and away, my favorite area of the city is (predictably) the East.

East London (also called the East End) has been the “it” area for the past few decades. In the 90s, Shoreditch was the place for squatters and hipsters, bohemians and hippies. Nowadays, for better or worse, this part of London has been undergoing the typical gentrification process.

The areas of Shoreditch, Hackney, Clapton, Hoxton and Dalston are some of the coolest and trendiest areas of London right now.
