The property was one of the first sugar plantations located on the island and it derived its name from the Africans from the Guinea Coast that once populated the property. Additionally, the location holds some cultural and historical significance as the first seedlings of the popular mango tree ever brought to Barbados in 1742 were planted on this property. This spacious property, first owned by Humphrey Walrond, has been beautifully restored by the new owners, the Forde Family.
