Description

Tucked away in a corner of this small development of 8 luxury villas is our holiday home. Set in beautifully manicured tropical gardens, with a well-maintained swimming pool, we have equipped the villa with the luxuries we love, so you will find Sanderson soft furnishings, Egyptian Cotton sheets and Jo Malone candles here.

Located on the Platinum West Coast, we are within walking distance of Holetown and just a couple of minutes' walk from the renowned Lone Star restaurant, which itself is set on a beach with resident turtles. With two typically Caribbean Beach Bars also on the beach, there is plenty to do without ever needing a car. And we provide a selection of adult & children-sized snorkeling gear, beach chairs and picnic gear, so that you don't have to worry about hiring anything (although there are loungers and umbrellas available on the beach). And back at base there are books to read, DVDs to watch, and board games to play. Or you can just snooze on a lounger by the pool

And back at base there are books to read, DVDs to watch, and board games to play. Or you can just snooze on a lounger by the pool as the days drift by, looking out for humming birds and the occasional green monkey.

The villa is equipped to cope easily with large families, or two couples sharing. Our master bedroom has an American-sized superking and en-suite bathroom, with plenty of wardrobe space and a dressing table. This room also opens onto our veranda and hammock area. We also have a day bed in case you want to pop a third person in the room. Our second bedroom has a double and a single bed, an en-suite and again lots of wardrobe space and a dressing table. Although we also have a full size mattress tucked away under one of our beds to cater for a 7th person if required, this would be a pinch and is not recommended unless there are a number of children in the group. A foldaway cot bed is also supplied, along with high chair and changing mat.

There is air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout the property, and the living area includes a wrap-around veranda for al-fresco dining. The property is furnished in a relaxed colonial style, and is suitable for children. There is a study area for those who cannot leave their Blackberrys at home, and we have WiFi and a large TV with Cable & Apple. A fully equipped kitchen, separate WC, and laundry room completes the accommodation. Outside we have a parking area and landscaped gardens. Finally, in the centre of this small gated community is a swimming pool with loungers and umbrellas.

We provide housekeeping for two full days per week (more can be arranged on request). Taxi transfers can be arranged, and we would be delighted to pass on recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area. We can also recommend a chef to come over and prepare your meals.

Our linen cupboard is full of laundered linen and beach towels, and at the start of every season we ensure that the kitchen is stocked with herbs, oils, and a small selection of spirits, and guests are welcome to order groceries to be delivered to them for their arrival date. We come here often ourselves, so we know what is needed to ensure our guests can kick off their shoes and start to relax from the moment they arrive.

During your stay you will be looked after by our property manager, Sandra, and by our housekeeper, Leeann. They can help with car hire, babysitting and any issues you might have during your stay.

Our villa isn't huge, and it isn't designed to within an inch of it's life. But it is peaceful and welcoming and a short walk from one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Barbados has the highest level of repeat visitors in the Caribbean, and is renowned for the friendliness of the locals, so it isn't a surprise when we see our guests returning every year to enjoy the peace and friendliness that we ourselves love.

Location description from owner

The Barbados region

Located on the beautiful 'platinum' west coast of Barbados in the parish of St. James, set next to superb white sandy beaches washed by the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Porters

Many water sports, including scuba diving and snorkelling are available locally and two of the finest golf courses in the Caribbean (The Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane) are within easy reach. The famous Lone Star Restaurant is just a short walk away, as is the world-renowned Royal Pavilion Hotel where you can sample the superb food and first class service on offer in the beachfront restaurant. Alternatively, you can just chill out with a cool drink and a bite to eat in Ju Ju's beach bar which is just south of The Lone Star, or Ramshackle Bar which is just north of it.

You will find amenities such as the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, with shops, cafes & cinemas, bars, banks, a supermarket, Post Office, medical centres, as well as an air-conditioned shopping mall with duty free shops in Sunset Crest & Holetown which is just a short bus/car journey/half hour walk away. There is also an excellent selection of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.
