Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Enjoying spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and set in an acre of gently sloping landscaped gardens, Calliaqua is a stunning Gillespie and Steel designed house occupying a prime position on the exclusive Sugar Hill Resort Community.
Elegantly furnished throughout, Calliaqua's covered full length terrace and balcony encourage an informal outdoor lifestyle where guests are cooled by the breeze and soothed by the natural coral stone walls and stylish Italian marble tiles.
Calliaqua's elevated location, panoramic views and exceptional quality of accommodation combined with Sugar Hill's top flight recreational amenities and the exclusive facilities at the pretty Suga-Suga beach make for an exotic and varied Caribbean holiday cocktail!
The generously proportioned covered outdoor terrace is probably the focal point of life at Calliaqua. At one end is a luxurious arrangement of wicker sofas and chairs and, at the other, a feature coral stone dining table under a crystal chandelier. After dark, Calliaqua's imaginative lighting makes for a magical and romantic atmosphere.
Steps from the terrace lead down to a beautifully designed 1000 sq. foot mosaic tiled pool, complete with mini waterfalls. Sun loungers and umbrellas are scattered around the spacious pool deck and a pool gazebo offers a bar (with fridge), informal dining arrangements and the perfect venue for sipping a cooling rum punch whilst watching those glorious bajan sunsets unfolding at the end of a tough day! The pool deck also benefits from a discreet speaker configuration which is linked to a central state of the art CD system which also serves the terrace and living areas.
French doors from the terrace flow back into the main internal living space which is large, light and airy and exquisitively furnished with high ceilings, marble tiles and coral stone walls enhancing Calliaqua's feeling of tranquillity and colonial style.
Calliaqua has 4 en-suite, air-conditioned bedrooms, attractively furnished but each with a distinctive individual style and featuring a separate dressing room within the master bedroom suite. French doors open directly onto the balcony from the 3 upstairs bedrooms where comfortable ottomans are perfect for relaxation and enjoyment of the stunning sea views.
Downstairs, the charming bedroom 4 ( the "parrot" room!) doubles as a study, with sofa bed, TV and DVD ( US and UK compatible) and a separate telephone line for PC/ Internet access for those with laptops.
The scope and flexibility of accommodation at Calliaqua is enhanced by a delightful guest cottage with double bed, en-suite bathroom, a small kitchen area and its own small patio area overlooking the pool.

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.
