Where it all Began
Roy and Anna Turner arrived on Haggerstone Island in 1985. A large barge carried timber, fruit trees and chickens. They had all the necessities to create their little slice of paradise.
The Main House was the first building constructed. It’s a charming large pole home with a thatched roof. Every corner contains trinkets and treasures collected from around the island.
Breakfast and dinner are served here, with lunch usually out on the boat. Also, while we prepare dinner, sit by the fire pit and enjoy a glass of wine.
Haus Mawu was designed exclusively by Roy. It’s the most deluxe and largest of all accommodation types. Designed with African and Morrocan influence. The self-contained villa is situated on the hillside. So, you can overlook the vast lagoon and beach.
