About the villa

Refurbished, extended and offering the archetypal semi open-air style of tropical island life, Bluff House stands in over an acre of exotic gardens, entered via a sweeping driveway, and focused on a pretty pool and sundeck, from where there are palm-framed views of the sea. A cool and classy coral stone villa, with bleached timber and marble floors, it is furnished in soft creams and subtle neutrals which complement its understated style. Privately positioned on the upper floor, the master suite opens on to a beautiful shaded balcony, looking out through the trees to the sea.
Everything else is at ground level, five bedrooms each with doors to the garden, a sitting room and stylish dining room, and at the heart of the house, amidst lush plants, an entertaining space opening on to the pool terrace. Open-water swimming is a ten minute stroll away along a private path from the garden to Sandy Lane beach, where sun loungers are provided, and Holetown’s restaurants are a walkable distance (or a five minute drive) from the house.

About the area

St James

Average weather

St. James parish runs along the central stretch of the island’s west—the Platinum Coast. Its white-sand beaches are backed by luxury hotels and villas including Sandy Lane, long patronized by royals and film stars. The seaside settlement of Holetown is at the centre of the parish: its bars, restaurants, and craft shops have a laid-back, local vibe. The Holetown Festival each February, one to catch on a St. James holiday, celebrates its status as the first British settlement on Barbados, with live music and a street fair.
