Bayleaf provides even the most seasoned traveller, a truly stunning back-to-nature experience. It is a wooden jalousie cottage, nestled between the trees and looks as if it has grown there, in harmony with it's surroundings. Virtually devoid of televisions and alarm clocks, it is a hideaway from the stresses of everyday living. Lie in a hammock under a canopy of stars and listen to the Atlantic Ocean's roar. It is within an easy 10 minute walking distance to some of the last remaining pristine beaches on the island and on some days you can have the beach all to yourself.
Bayleaf offers the comforts of home. It includes a queen-size bed, locally made wooden furniture, a walk-in closet and ceiling fans. It also includes a kitchen equipped with a refrigerator, two burner hobb, electric oven, toaster, blender, coffee maker and utensils.
Dining is alfresco, surrounded by the trees and chirping of birds in the daytime and chirping of crickets at night.
It also features a private en-suite bathroom with a sunken outdoor shower, surrounded by the trees.
It comes fully equipped with beach towels, portable hammocks, a cooler and ice packs.
The owners and co-host all live 15 minutes drive away. Our caretakers Brandon or Walter will therefore be on the adjoining property during your stay, to take care of all of your immediate needs.

You can go fishing with the locals and can hike to the neighbouring village of Micoud or cycle off the beaten path or just watch the sun rise over the horizon. The Laborie beach is a short drive away and from there you can see the neighbouring island of Saint Vincent on a clear day . Kite and wind surfing , horseback riding and kayaking are all nearby. Just remember to pack your fishing gear and a paint brush.
A stay at the Bayleaf spells pure escapism and it is an experience that you will want to return to again and again and again.
