Balenbouche Estate is a family owned and managed Plantation Guesthouse with an authentic 180 year old plantation house and 18th century sugar mill, surrounded by 60 acres of pastures, fruit orchards, gardens and trails adjoining a river and two secluded beaches. We have 5 simple but charming guest cottages, which can accommodate a total of 14 people. All our accommodations are built from existing structures and reclaimed materials, in a tropical open style which takes advantage of the natural breeze. Most of our guests are independent, eco-conscious travelers looking to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the estate and get to know the island. Several times a year, we host yoga retreats and other workshops, and we also give guided tours of the estate provide a venue for weddings and other smaller events. However, while we are only a 20 minute drive from the International airport and a 30 minute drive from Soufriere, Balenbouche is still very much off the beaten path, unpretentious and non-commercial. This is how we want to keep it! ;
Our family, Uta Lawaetz and her two daughters, live on site and share a passion for preserving the unique heritage, natural landscape and authentic charm of the property. We enjoy making our guests feel at home and sharing our story and knowledge of the island. We always seek to ensure that Balenbouche is a good fit for our guests and that we exceed their expectations. We greatly encourage you to read our online reviews before booking a stay. For some, a visit to Balenbouche might be a life changing event and the beginning of a long relationship, others will want to head to the nearest resort with a/c, swimming pool and bar. Some of the terms our visitors have used to describe Balenbouche Estate include: Magical, warm and welcoming, personal, authentic, traditional, historic, rustic, beautiful, eco-friendly, organic, like stepping back in time, spiritual, healing, calming, inspiring, romantic, family-oriented, a world of it's own.
