Coral Tree Cottage

Welcome to Coral Tree Cottage

Coral Tree Cottage is a new addition to our accommodation at Sweethome. This cottage was designed to create a more private space for a bride and her entourage to get ready, relax and have their hair and make up done. It is also suitable for the groom and his groomsmen, or a family.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms – a queen room and a twin room. Each room has a mirror and shelf for doing hair and makeup, as well as an area to hang clothes.

These rooms share a large Jack and Jill bathroom (each have access from their rooms), but there is also another toilet on the side of the building. This was designed for service providers to use, as well as for other guests that are visiting you in the cottage.
