Tucked away in Duval Street is this little oasis of calm. You enter along a beautiful pathway surrounded by established plants to the entrance to the house at the rear. We opted to let a guide explain more about the house, she was very pleasant...More

We stumbled on this little historic site while walking down Duval Street. The guide was informative. Technically it is free but they do request a donation.

With a really good guide and free to enter although donations welcomed. It is really worth having the free tour as you learn so much. House beautifully restored and gardens immaculate. A real gem in the middle of Duval Street.
