The White House


The White House is the island's family guesthouse.  It was built in 1933 for Cecil and Maude's two daughters, Daphne and Calypso, who between them had ten children.  Recent renovations have allowed for additional bathrooms and the installation of off-grid central heating and hot water, while retaining the innate charm of Lutyens' original design.

The house sprawls generously across the ground floor and there are eight guest bedrooms and six bathrooms, four of which are en suite and two of which are shared one between two bedrooms.  A further two bedrooms and one bathroom upstairs are reserved for catering and support staff. 


Please email for enquiries.

The house has two symmetrical wings and provides a comfortable selection of eight luxurious super-king (or twin) bedrooms.  Four of these have their own en suite bathrooms, with the other four sharing one wet-room (shower, sink, WC) between two bedrooms. 


There are two large living/dining rooms - one in each wing with sea or garden views - and a central sitting room with a beautiful original fireplace and open fire.  The upstairs rooms are reserved for in-house catering and hospitality staff.

The large central kitchen has an adjoining commercially fitted kitchen and ample storage in the pantry and scullery.  There are two smaller kitchenettes in the wings, which are ideal for tea/coffee and a drinks area for self-service.
