Take a step back in time for a refreshingly sophisticated island holiday at the Ledgelets Cottage Colony. The serene atmosphere instantly lulls you into a soothing, restful state of relaxation. Wake to the chirping birds, and fall asleep to the choral tree frogs. The refurbished cottage interiors and pool terrace have been created with a modern vintage, boho-luxe vibe. To us, nostalgia is a very cool thing. Welcome, Forbidden Fruit Cottage awaits.
