Q&As


What is the history of Hope Estate?


Throughout the 1950′s the majority of the lands at Hope Estate were utilized primarily as a large coconut plantation of approximately 607ha (1,500 acres) in area. Hope Estate also accommodated a longstanding residential/resort development that thrived on the picturesque breezy plateaus that overlooks Hillborough Bay.

The majority of Hope Estate was sold to the State, save 19.56ha parcel which has been retained by the family of the original owner, Mr. John Daly.

The development existed on two parcels prior to 1963 and proudly included:

  • The Greensands Cottages Hotel
  • The Estate House
  • Agricultural Land
  • A community of residences
  • Beach and bath house

The family has now made a decision to restore the historical heritage of the lands by reverting to the original land usage
