Description: The typical style of housing is the same as in other Caribbean islands and was brought by the British during the days of slavery. Usually, the kitchen was built away from the house with the intention of preventing fires. Every native house has a balcony, either in front or around it. Bright colors and plants are typical elements that give life to these houses.
