My Vision

“My sister and I discovered The Pink Plantation House a few years ago. It was the perfect setting for a restaurant. A spacious terrace, stunning gardens, a breathtaking view and cool hilltop breeze. Now. infused with love, the bedrooms of the old house have been restored and brought back to life, so guests can enjoy a truly authentic Caribbean experience on this beautiful island of ours.”

“We can now invite guests to book a room to stay and share our vision”



Hand Crafted Rooms

The best way I can describe what it was like to renovate the rooms, is that it felt like I was working on one of my paintings. Except, in this case, it was a three dimensional painting.

What we provide our guests…

Each room has a theme and every piece of furniture has been handcrafted just for that room. Our goal is to be organic wherever possible and therefore we use locally produced bathroom amenities. The price of the room includes a Pink Plantation Island Breakfast and some comforts given on arrival. We have a fitness studio nearby-“Mango Moon” and you are welcome to use it whilst you are with us complimentary. The rooms have AC as well as ceiling fans, a flat-screen TV, and complimentary internet access. For your convenience, we provide you with a local cell phone to keep with you until you leave. When you go to the beach, we give you one of our “Beach Kits” complete with towels, snorkeling gear etc

The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner and you can also dine at sister restaurant “The Coal Pot” which is about ten minutes away.

The lovely Sharnia acts as the house “Major Domo” and she will make sure you have what you need.

“It was a real pleasure to work with the local craftsmen we engaged to carry out my weird requests. It meant, however, that each room was different and special. We named them after their design concept such as:  ‘PINEAPPLE PLEASURE’, ‘VANILLA DAWN’ & ‘COCONUT RAIN’

About Pink Plantation House

The foundations of the house, though not the actual building, date back to Admiral Rodney. George Brydges Rodney, 1st Baron Rodney, was a British naval officer, whose HQ was on the site.

He is best known for his commands in the American War of Independence, particularly his victory over the French at the Battle of the Saintes in 1782. He is credited with creating a battle tactic which involved “breaking the enemy line” (of ships). The house has a strategic bird’s eye view of Martinique and the Saint Lucia channel.

The house itself is 130 years old and has been the home to government officials, such as Colonel James, a British Chief of Police prior to Independence and Veronica Shingleton-Smith, a notable landscape designer from Saint Lucia. In the past and because of the altitude and cooling breeze, it was also home to a coffee plantation.

It was whilst searching for a historic house as a studio for Wild Orchid Designs, my sister and I discovered, what would become the Pink Plantation House. It also became an authentic local restaurant and a sister to the long-established “Coal Pot” at Vigie.


The Pink Plantation Restaurant

I remember as a young girl coming home from school to the restaurant my parents ran. The wondrous smells emanating from the kitchen as my mother prepared the signature French Onion Soup are indelibly imprinted in my head and became the inspiration of our food philosophy. Fresh local produce, cooked simply from old-fashioned recipes. Organic and authentic food with a little bit of French knowhow added for zest.

Our menu specialises in fillets cut from whole fresh fish from the market, local Caribbean Spiny Lobster in season and fruit and vegetables from local farmers.


The Pink Plantation House is open for lunch daily

We only open to non-residents for Dinner on Friday evenings in high season
