The venerable Frangipani, once a sea captain's home and also the birthplace of James Mitchell, former prime minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, is known for its welcoming waterfront bar and restaurant. Luxurious garden and deluxe hillside units, built of local stone and hardwoods, rise on a gentle hillside filled with fragrant frangipani trees. These rooms have tile floors, louvered windows and doors, canopy beds, spacious private baths, and verandas with spectacular sunset views of the harbor. Two deluxe hillside rooms have air-conditioning. Five "economy" rooms in the historic house have painted-wood walls and floors, grass rugs, and plain furniture; they share a bay-front terrace at the front and a cold-water bath at the end of the hall (Room 3 is closest to the bath).
