Where is it?
This private family estate is situated near the picturesque village of Hope Town, settled in the 1700's by Loyalists from the Carolinas and New England. The quaint village has narrow streets, pastel cottages, and lush tropical vegetation and flowering trees and bushes all year round. Peaceful and uncrowded, Hope Town has several good restaurants, grocery stores, a tiny bakery, interesting shops, modern marinas and boat rentals. There is a wonderful museum depicting the history of Hope Town with fascinating photographs and memorabilia. Special celebrations during the holiday season and various local occasions are festive and fun for all ages. There are dozens of beautiful, pink sand beaches which you can explore. The diving and snorkeling are considered some of the best in the world, and at certain times of year there is great surfing from nearby "Garbanzo Beach". We have quite an active surfing club. This is can be an 'adventure' destination or a quiet retreat, depending on your preferences. A boat rental is required, and access to the village is strictly by boat. There are organized charter boats for visiting other islands, diving, fishing and exploring if you are not particularly boat minded. For some additional photos, please go to www.picturetrail.com and type in TWINDOLPHIN where it asks for member name. You will then see a choice of albums, and can look at our photos of Twin Dolphin Point and the area (and us!).
