Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Anchorage is a single story residence and sits in its own acre/half hectare grounds at the western end of the Sandy Lane Estate just a stone's throw from the Hotel and the private Property Owners Beach. It is bright and airy and has excellent quality furnishings throughout. The house is fully alarmed which is linked to a 24 hour monitoring station.
Anchorage has a permanent Housekeeper who is an excellent cook and who will take care of your every need six days a week (sadly you have to fend for yourselves on Sundays). She will prepare breakfast and a light lunch (other meals by arrangement) as well as taking care of all the laundry including personal items.
Geoffrey is our dedicated Gardener who keeps the grounds in immaculate condition. Thursdays is mowing day so it's advisable not to have too much to drink on Wednesday evening otherwise it could be - "oh my head!".
The spacious vaulted Living Room is a blend of old Barbados mahogany furniture & coral stone with the more modern bamboo. The security louver shutters, which open fully on the North & South sides, give the room the feeling of total openess as either way the view is of the luscious gardens.
The marble dining table seats twelve and is ideal for formal entertaining. The twelve mahogany dining chairs and carvers have needlepoint seats, each of which is a different, very attractive, shell design.
There is a small TV room off the Living Room which can also be used as an Office. The Direct TV channels provide CNN & BBC News, ESPN Sports, TNT & HBO and a variety of specialist programmes. The Office area has a fax/printer and a Broadband connection.
All Bedrooms are fully air-conditioned. The large master bedroom, with its bright attractive fabrics, has two twin beds with mattresses that zip together to make one humungous 8'/2.5m double. It has its own double basin en suite bathroom with a very large shower. The second bedroom can also be made up as a twin or double and has its own bathroom with bath/shower opposite. The Third Bedroom has its own en suite bathroom with bath/shower and the beds can be made up as two singles or one 6’/1.5m double.
The large, covered outdoor patio overlooks the pool and it is where most guests relax when not by the pool enjoying the Barbados sun. At one end there is a dining area with a wrought iron table that comfortably seats six, and is ideal for breakfast, lunch and informal dining in the evenings.
At the other end is comfortable informal seating for eight and is the perfect setting for reading your novel out of the sun during the day and the ideal meeting place for drinks prior to meals.
The house is located in the middle of its own manicured one acre/half a hectare gardens. The lush tropical planting give guests total privacy with quiet shaded areas where one can enjoy a book, or alternatively lie by the pool perfecting the sun tan on any one of the six loungers.
The property boasts eighteen different species of Palms including two rare varieties, which are of great interest amongst the locals.
Less than five minutes walk or two minutes drive away from Anchorage is one of the best beaches in Barbados and this is where the Sandy Lane Property Owners Private Beach Facility is located immediately adjacent to the famous Sandy Lane Hotel. Here there is a small private Cabana, which houses a fridge for cold drinks and six beach loungers & four chairs. There are outdoor showers as well as toilet facilities. The Sandy Lane Hotel water sports facility is adjacent should you wish to water-ski or sail.
Barbados has lots of beautiful beaches and a great climate. It is also easy to get to with many direct flights from Canada, the United States and Europe. The weather is almost always sunny and warm in Barbados, cooled by the northeast Tradewinds. Barbados sightseeing is a photographer's dream. There are many natural wonders, breathtaking scenic views, gorgeous gardens and miles of white, sandy beaches. There's so much to see and many things to do such as duty-free shopping, guided island tours, or visit one of the many beaches, nature reserves or historic landmarks.

The St James Parish region
Barbados offers such an abundance of natural beauty, culture and history that the island is called “The Gem of the Caribbean.” Located about 300 miles north of Venezuela and the most Eastern of the Caribbean islands, Barbados portrays a delightful blend of West Indian culture and English Tradition. Independent since 1966, Barbados is the most developed of the Caribbean islands and Bridgetown, the 375-year-old historic capital is its colourful and bustling center of activity. Shopping, excellent dining and a funky nightlife are just a few of the many options available. There is an extensive bus system that is cheap and fast, providing an entertaining way to discover the island.
There are magnificent caves to explore, gorgeous landscapes and tropical gardens to visit, and an abundance of wildlife to see, including the mischievous little “green monkeys” that call Barbados their home. On the South and West coasts, the Caribbean Sea with calm blue waters and endless stretches of fine white sandy beaches invites you to relax, while the Atlantic east coast with cliffs and great waves is ideal for wind and sky surfing.
There is lots to do and the choice is not easy, but whether you enjoy some of the 3,000 hours of annual sunshine or chat with a friendly “Bajan” in one of the numerous little rum shops on the roadsides, make sure to relax in the comfort of your private Rental Butler villa at the end of the day. Take in the breathtaking sunsets, have a delicious local dinner prepared for you or just lean back and dream into the starry skies.
