Jasmine was built by a family in 1989 and has always rung with peals of children's laughter. It remains a family holiday home. Jasmine is one of the few houses in Shela with a garden and plunge pool.

The space
Jasmine House itself is split into two with a small courtyard between. On one side there are three bedrooms one on the second floor with a barazza and two hanging beds and a secondary seating area with views to Manda. On the first floor are two rooms with a sharing bathroom along with another setting area. The dining room, kitchen, sitting room and courtyard on the ground floor. On the other side of the courtyard is a two story building with an ensuite on each floor, the upper floor also benefitting from a seating area.
In the garden there is a further barazza, pool and above the stores a final seating area which has occasionally been used for overflow visitors to sleep.
