We love pets and provide accommodations for guests with pets in our family guest homes. We also have friendly, pet wild chickens and a rooster that roam our land. Be prepared for roosters crowing at dawn – this is the rural, island country side! If you bring your dog, please ensure that it does not harm our chickens by keeping it on a leash at all times while strolling the grounds. Of course, please clean up any debris left behind by the behind!….and dispose of properly in trash bins located outside near coin laundry facilities.

Absolutely no pets allowed in the main house at any time – only in guest homes.

ABH proudly presents vegan diet lifestyle and assists in educating and providing the environment for the significant change in how society enjoys dining. “Vegan” implies that our kitchen is strictly meat-free and dairy-free in all our food preparations. We do provide organic half-half for those who enjoy cream in their coffee and butter for toast for those who enjoy traditional toast. Beyond that, there is no meat and there is no dairy in any of our food. We do offer local, fresh-baked bread from our local bakery which does include gluten and is the only item in our food offering that contains gluten. All Shiva Diva menu items are vegan and gluten-free

For those who are staying at our hotel for an extended period of time and wish to dine on meat, we offer 2 cottages with fully equipped kitchens where guests can prepare their own meals and enjoy the diet they are accustomed to.   Including, there are many cafes close by that offer a variety of meat dishes in their menu offerings as well local grocers who offer a selection of the same.

Often, we hear form our guest who are not “Vegan” that they love our food and would consider a vegan diet because of our offerings. However, we do not expect our guests to become vegan diners and to radically change their lifestyle unless they desire to do so. We offer an environment and experience to try something different for those who are curious and seeking to learn more about this growing trend in dining. For those who are living the vegan lifestyle, we offer a place where they can vacation and enjoy the lifestyle they are accustomed to. 

Please no smoking on the premises. Consider taking a stroll to the park located next door to our estate and enjoy a quiet moment under one of the banyan trees. 

Our desire is to maintain an “oxygen-rich”, revitalizing atmosphere for guests that naturally exists with the northeastern trade-winds that stream across the property.

At times, people inquire if one beer an evening is ok, or one bottle of wine is ok, etc. Our answer is always: please, please no alcohol of any kind or any amount on our property. If you must have a drink – alcohol is plentiful nearby in markets and cafes. Take a stroll into town (1/2 block away) where there is a variety of offerings.
