Vintners Cottage was one of the first houses built when the island farm was subdivided in the 1920's and retains its exterior character (other than large wooden bi-folds at the front opening up to a deck to take in the sea view). Keeping the exterior character was important as many of the original houses on the island have been demolished .

The full house renovation includes floor, wall and ceiling insulation, heat-pump and a wood-burner for the colder days of the year, and air-con for the warmer days . The inside has all the conveniences of modern home and is designed and styled to be uncluttered, clean, fresh & modern. The materials palette is original wood floors and walls with plywood and concrete additions. Colours are white, grey, wood browns & black.


We have asked our housekeeping provider to now expand on their consistent excellent cleaning of the house to extent to using stronger and appropriate disinfectants on all frequently touched surfaces including (but not limited to) cupboard & drawer handles, doorknobs, taps, light switches, window latches, tv, dvd & air-con remotes & appliance handles.
