Grasshopper is an enchanting house, one of the original Oliver Messel-designed houses which is set in an acre of garden filled with flowers, palms and fruit trees. It has a wonderful feeling of space and has been renovated, decorated, has new bathrooms, kitchen and interior limestone floors.
Grasshopper is situated close to all the island's facilities including the tennis courts and riding stables and a short distance from the Cotton House Beach, Macaroni Beach, the famous Basil’s Bar and Firefly.
There is a large swimming pool sundeck with sun-loungers and gingerbread-style gazebo where you can relax in the shade. On the far side of the spacious, flat lawn there is a large pergola in semi-shade with more sofas and another outdoor dining area. This house is ideal for children.
The house is rented out as a three bedroom house, suitable for three couples or a family, maximum six guests. As there are actually five bedrooms, the extra rooms can be included for a supplement charge, however bedrooms four and five share a bathroom. If you take all five bedrooms, the maximum allowed is eight guests.
All the bedrooms have air-conditioning.
You will be looked after by our excellent Cook/Housekeeper - Kendra, who will suggest menus, do the shopping and cook for you; Colbert the Butler/Gardener and Petra the Maid (there may be two maids - depending on the number of guests) who will clean, tidy and do laundry. There is one vehicle (mule) which you may use.
