If you require several rooms or suites, Sergeant House can be booked as a whole or in part. It is a perfect place, not only for individuals and couples, but also as a place to share with your friends or extended family.

The bungalow and suites of Sergeant House are furnished in colonial style with original art, antiques, four-poster beds, polished cement floors with inlaid timber and ambient lighting. The bathrooms are generous and well appointed with differing vanity, bath and shower arrangements, all thoughtfully designed and individually expressed. You may find: a delicate translucent alabaster hand basin; a hand beaten brass wash basin or; a hand formed, polished cement bath (for two) in your bathroom. (See Individual Room or Suite Descriptions below)

All accommodations have their own large, private verandahs (with overhead fans) allowing views of lily pond tropical palm filled landscape. There are many different perspectives and landscapes vistas available from Sergeant House and we have tried to showcase them with the design and orientation of our rooms and suites. Occasional glimpses of the sea can be seen through the trees from the upper levels.

The Sergeant's Bungalow

The bungalow has three comfortable bedrooms (with 4 beds in total) and is rented as a full unit for friends and family groups. It features its own private fountain garden and entry onto deeply shaded verandahs roofed with original handmade clay tiles and supported by Tuscan columns. The verandahs are furnished with casual cushioned chairs, coffee tables and a bookcase. Paired doors open directly on the opposite side of the bungalow to reveal an internal courtyard with a granite fountain and small garden. This creates a breezeway effect and good cross ventilation throughout the house.

Extensively renovated to add an upper floor, the bungalow retains all of its original colonial details, including hand carved panelled jackwood doors, window shutters and delicate timber friezes set in deep arched reveals above the windows and doors. This has the effect of allowing a soft light to penetrate the bungalow.

On the ground floor, the main bedroom has a king-size four-poster bed with mosquito net, a small writing desk, overhead fan and an air conditioner. There is an ensuite bath/shower room and separate vanity /toilet room. The ensuite bathroom has a large two-person bath and separate walk-in shower whilst the vanity room has a hand beaten, polished brass vanity basin and built-in wardrobe.

The ground floor also has a sitting room with a large, comfortable built-in seating nook, large size, cable 3D Smart television,  DVD player and a large movie collection.

One up-stairs bedroom is furnished with a queen-size, four-poster bed, a writing desk and a small antique clothes closet. The second bedroom contains two four-poster beds with mosquito netting (a queen size and a super-single size) and a small antique cloths closet.
