Zion House is a holiday home and retreat space for creativity, joy and relaxation. It consists of a 2 bedroom house and 1 bedroom basement apartment which can sleep up to 10 people.The main house has a open plan kitchen, living room and dining room leading to a circular balcony with views of the sea, the landscape and the adjacent pond. There is a ground floor washroom with toilet and a laundry room leading to a garage space and outdoor drying room. The Basement Apartment comprises of an open plan kitchen and dining area, a lounge, one double bedroom and a bathroom with walk in shower. There is a newly built large wooden deck outside suitable for dining, sunbathing and practicing yoga.

It is situated in a spacious, private 3 acre development in St Martins, St Philip, Barbados on the South East of the island. It was designed and built by a leading Barbadian architect Michael Lashley along with 3 other houses on the site and his Architect's office. There is a communal pond and trees and plenty of space to reflect and relax away from the hustle and bustle of the world. Zion house has a very simple homely feel about it and is very quiet and tranquil. Although the immediate environment around the house is quiet and spacious the house is within 5 minutes walking distance to a supermarket, Rum shop (Bajan pub) convenience store.

Our closest beach is Foul Bay at 5 mins drive or 20 minute walk. This is quiet beautiful, white sands beach perfect for sunbathing. Also suitable for swimming for fairly confident swimmers and brilliant if you like bodyboarding. Crane Beach and the Crane Resort is a short bus, cycle or drive away. The beach has been rated as one of 10 best beaches in the world. If you are a non swimmer or want a busier time at the beach we suggest Miami Beach at Oistins. This is a lifeguarded beach and has still calm crystal clear blue Caribbean waters that Barbados is famed for which you can reach by bus or car in about 20 minutes.

Zion House is in a semi rural residential location which is very Barbadian (Bajan) with very few tourists. So when you are walking about you will find yourself living and experiencing authentic Barbadian life.

The St Philip Parish region

Barbados is a beautiful, welcoming, safe, relaxing and joy-filled Caribbean island. It is a one of the most developed Caribbean islands so you can feel at home and comfortable whilst being able to enjoy the vibrant wildlife, culture and atmosphere that is on offer.

Barbados is especially well regarded for swimming and water sports. It offers visitors a spacious and relaxed opportunity to enjoy radiant tropical sunshine, the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea or the rugged, refreshing vitality of the Atlantic Ocean.

Water sports include scuba diving among reefs and famous wrecks, fishing, catamaran cruises and snorkeling with the turtles.

Access Tropical Fauna and Flora through hikes inland to St Andrew, St John and St Joseph. There are beautiful gardens to explore such as Hunte's Garden, a private gem with towering trees, exquisite flowers and quiet nooks to sit and dream. Other botanical must-sees are Andromeda Gardens, the Flower Forest and Orchid World.

Barbadian life for visitors is relaxed and stress free. Slow down your pace of life, take some time out and just be. Nightlife is there if you want it with bars, restaurants nightclubs especially on the South and West coast.

European winter months November - April are the perfect time to visit as you have manageable warmth with a cool breeze to top up the vitamin D and escape the winter blues. For more details specific events and highlights visit www.barbados.org

St Philip is a parish on the South east coast of Barbados. It is great for the more independent traveller who wishes to chill out, take a break and explore more authentic Barbadian life. There is easy access to local beaches, amenities and local rum shops when you want company and the area is really friendly.

If you wish to venture father afield it is easy to reach all of the popular sites on the island. Public transport is easily accessible to take you to Oistins for a dance, Bridgetown for shopping or to the Crane Resort if you fancy some pampering or fine dining experience. If you do decide to hire a car the island is your oyster and you can access the South, East and West Coasts very easily and you can tour the North Coast and back in a day comfortably.
