Frankfort is a 17th Century fortress that was brilliantly restored as a remarkable four-bedroom home (plus cottage) on a beautiful idyllic Caribbean beach. The old Sugar Wharf House features the original fortified loopholes, original beamed ceilings and fortified stone walls.
In 2004, Frankfort underwent a half a million dollar total renovation and was completely transformed into a paradigm of 21st Century laid-back elegance.
Frankfort was once the holiday retreat of Winston Churchill, Queen Mary, Prince Edward, Secretary General U Thant, Prime Minister Trudeau, Prime Minister Michael Manley, Dr. Henry Kissinger, Sir Noel Coward, Bryan Adams and Drew Barrymore. Guests will enjoy the old photos of celebrity guests that still sit atop the piano.
The original thick stone walls and gun slots are still in place and serve as reminders of Frankfort's days as a British fort defending against Spanish invaders and pirates. Two old cannons were dug up from the beach and reign squarely on the lawn.
Floor to ceiling bookcases serve to divide the ground floor into two sections: one an elegant inside dining area with a dimly lit bar and the other a comfortable living room, TV, music and games area.
An 80' Travertine stone verandah is furnished from the stylish Dedon Collection from Germany. This covered furnished area serves as a fabulous gathering area for drinks and alfresco dining as the sun sets over Frankfort's perfect white sand beach.
Frankfort's beach is sugar white and the swimming is wonderful in it's gin clear waters. The gardener is available to place comfortable beach chaises in the sun or under thatch umbrellas. The staff is, also, willing to prepare a torchlight beach feast. Just 300 yards offshore is a live reef and snorkels and masks are provided.
On request, the butler will hire jet skis, Hobie cats, sailfish, sunset cruise or deep sea fishing. Most water sports may be paid by credit card at the nearby Prospect Plantation office.
A pool would have been redundant given the picture perfect beach that Frankfort is located on and an 8 person hot tub overlooks the sea.
Frankfort provides sea kayaks, children's beach toys, table tennis and volleyball for the beach. A shared tennis court is located just a 5 minute walk from the villa and balls and 4 tennis racquets are provided.
Guests enjoy asking the staff prepare a torchlight feast on the beach.

A cut stone path leads 60 feet across the lawn to the old Schoolhouse which was built in 1953 for the Mitchell's only daughter, Mary Jean. Back then when Sir Harold and Prime Minister Churchill were meeting in the main house, Mary Jean's care and education were looked after her here by her nanny and tutor. Years later, a second story was added and the Schoolhouse was converted to an air-conditioned cottage with Frankfort's fourth bedroom and mini-gym. Downstairs there is a living room, TV, double sofa bed, mini-fridge, Nordic Track Incline and Weslo Cadence.
