"Runaway Point" Montserrat
Montserrat Hideaway Home in the Caribbean
This is our private sanctuary free of the day to day distractions that over time rob us of our peace and creativity. Runaway Point is a comfortable home in Montserrat, a Caribbean island where nature provides the entertainment.
We have transformed our home in Montserrat into a comfortable serene Caribbean cottage. We have taken its 1500 square feet of interior space, removing the inessential, leaving an interior that is spare and peaceful. There is one bedroom with a queen sized bed and soft bedside lighting for late night reading. The bath is across the hall. What was the master bedroom has been transformed into an ample computer based workspace and a lazy comfortable space for DVD, VCR, and cable TV. For daytime indoor imaginings this room has a huge window overlooking the garden, the ocean below, and the hills in the distance. There is a fully equipped cook's galley kitchen combined with a comfortably and casually furnished living room area. The dining room also is spare and with candles lit in chimney clad candleholders makes a very romantic setting.
Our huge wooden deck running along the back of the house has a dining table and chairs, a sunning area with cushioned chaise lounges, and a shaded sitting area with a cushioned couch and chair. Adjacent to the house is our 15 by 30 foot pool with its small patio and half-bath.
What makes our Caribbean home or villa so special is its location; our property backs into a national park called Runaway Ghaut (ravine). Looking out from our deck it might appear that you were set down in a huge Caribbean tropical forest, ocean below and mountains above. It really is magical.
Montserrat is not an island of canned
entertainment. You will make your own distractions. There will be no
one to sell you a tour unless you seek one out. With a guide or
on your own if you prefer, you may hike on any of
trails through the mountains or down to the sea on the Runaway Ghaut
trail. The exotic black sand beaches are also places of relative
solitude where you will be free to enjoy yourself without anyone
to disturb your peace of mind.
and safe. It is truly a place of renewal.
