The house is set back from Victoria Street and very quiet. The guests stay on the upper floor with the superb views and breezes because historically the ground floor was used to store the salt raked from the salt ponds and then transported and off loaded by donkey and cart. The donkeys would haul the salt in burlap bags on the back of the cart and store under the Brown House until the sailing ships arrived to collect the salt foe delivery to ports around the world.
