The Georgian design of Wild Orchid villa captures the ambiance and grace of the original plantation ... enhanced by modern amenities of air-conditioned bedrooms, state-of-the-art kitchen and baths, satellite dish and lighted tennis court. Interiors are adorned by Oriental rugs, unique hand-laid tiles and custom cedar accents. The comfortable covered verandah is furnished with large bamboo sofas and chairs covered in white canvas.

Five acres of manicured lawns and gardens surround the villa and open to the greater property ... where guests can stroll, jog and be close to nature. In past centuries, men loaded bananas onto ships 300 yards downhill from the house.

In true Colonial style, Wild Orchid is meticulously staffed so that guests are pampered through sunny days and relaxed evenings ... with memorable home-cooked meals served in the spacious indoor dining area or on the large open verandah under the almond trees ... cooled by the tradewinds. The night view from Wild Orchid is breathtaking ... especially from the al fresco dining terrace.

The Wild Orchid villa and grounds provide a superbly spacious and photogenic location for weddings, receptions and honeymoons. Click for Weddings page.

Guest Reviews

  • Excellent all around. Thank you very much!

    Nicholas C - March 2016

  • Exceptional! Have never had a vacation quite like this one and it is 100% due to the staff at Wild Orchid. We've been all over the world but this group is outstanding.

    With our large family it is hard to find a place that has everything for everyone - but Wild Orchid does! The pool & property were perfect for our boys. And the food - better than 5-star restaurant, unbelievably good!

    The staff:

    Major was the first one here, last to leave without fail; thank you for the professional work ethic and taking such good care of our family.

    Coolie was best cook we've ever experienced without question; thank you for the "love" you put into every meal you prepared.

    Carron was a ray of sunshine, always greets you with a smile; thank you for your positive attitude & teamwork with Coolie to prepare our family meals.

    Cynthia was helpful, house kept perfectly; thank you for your quiet yet sweet hospitality...you made this a vacation "HOME".

    Tiny...having someone to do our laundry is beyond expectation...and WOW can she do laundry! We appreciate her.

    These individuals make Wild Orchid special...have already recommended to family and friends!

    Our trip to Wild Orchid was a great success. The house is lovely --- much improved. We enjoyed every day to the fullest. Thank you for making our trip a success.

    Sonya R. - New York, NY - January 2014

  • Dear Linda,

    This wonderful staff, whose love makes us feel like family, is among the many reasons we have been returning year after year to Wild Orchid. The villa is great and we feel blessed to have been coming here for six years. We have already made arrangements for our seventh trip because this is the best vacation we have ever had. There are 6 adults and 5 children in our group and everyone had a ball!

    Petit W. - March 2011

  • Dear Linda,

    The entire staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is outstanding, the grounds are well kept, the tennis and pool areas are beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed the daily "running of the goats".

    As usual, we found Wild Orchid to be terrific, excellent, wonderful, fantastic and special. Thank you for a great vacation.
