A large anchor on the sun-dappled pathway marks the entrance to this 19th-century house, which is now an unpretentious inn that was built by a shipwright and has a large, breezy balcony with commanding views over the sea, as well as wonderfully quirky little nautical features left from the original building. Rooms A2, B2, and C2 are nicely shaded havens but have no sea views. Upstairs, Rooms G and H share a balcony with unobstructed views of the ocean and Duke Street. One of the inn’s best features is the hidden garden of tall tamarind and neem trees set behind the inn, with its climbing vines, hanging and potted plants, and a pond. The garden is a quiet spot with natural shade, and home to the inn's Secret Garden restaurant. Be sure to catch their live entertainment night.
