Our House – Coocoo’s House in Harper
We rented this ‘mansion’ from Coocoo Tubman. 10 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, no running water. We used a pump and filled one of the 8 bath tubs for daily use. We took a shower on the terrace under the roof, with a beautiful view over the ocean. This house is the last house on the peninsula, right before the lighthouse. On the highest floor, where we and our baby slept, half of the shutters were missing. When it rained we had to move the beds as far away as possible from the windows. The fishermen would yell early in the morning if they caught something. We were very happy when it was a lobster! It is now occupied by the Danish Refugee Council, as we have heard.
