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.

We aim for Zion to be:
A place to create joy, happy memories and laughter
A home retreat which is warm, cool and full of love
A place for creativity and art
A place for yoga and meditation
A space to start afresh
An open, safe, secure home
A great place for young and old kids
A space for growing food and living with nature
A simple, light, bright environment - spacious and clutter free
An evolving project

We offer the house and the basement space to let for holidays and organised retreats

Location description from owner

The Barbados 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.

“Tranquil and relaxing environment for a retreat”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2015

Quiet location providing a tranquil environment to recharge energy. Wonderful main living space with high ceilings, lots of light and cooling breezes. Comfortable bedrooms. Surrounded by garden with a wonderful yoga deck to start the day facing the rising sun, and a hammock under the palm trees. Safe area to be able to walk to the nearby cliff top or a longer walk to the beautiful beach at Foul Bay. So blissful to spend two weeks here with friends nurturing myself at the start of the year.

“Wonderful relaxing place”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2015

Perfect for our group. The house (we rented the entire property, including the basement apartment) was so affordable and accommodating. You will need a car to get around the island but this location is so much nicer and down to earth then the touristy areas. By staying here, we all were truly able to relax while going to those tourist places when we felt. LOVED LOVED LOVED Barbados and the locals. House is close to grocery and airport. Close to beaches and a short drive to magical Bathsheba. I will book here when we come back.
