About the villa

In a setting to match its superb standards, the gorgeous Gardenia stands directly beside the soft sands and sea, within easy reach of Holetown, Mullins Beach, and the Royal Westmorland Golf Resort. Nestled amid three acres of tropical gardens, the villa’s covered verandas peep out between tall palms, a short stairway leading down to an elegantly styled swimming pool, with a sundowner table at the poolside, overlooking the sea. Stepped pathways twist between trees and lawns to a private tennis court, lily ponds, and a bridge to a cantilevered deck above a natural gully.

And within the house, granite worktops grace a bright white kitchen; the huge living/dining room is framed by coral stone columns, floored with fabulous rugs and furnished with sofas piled with colourful cushions; and entertainment comes with a cool toned media room, and a games/fitness room with table tennis, TV and exercise equipment. There are two guest suites in the Gate House, three bedrooms on the villa’s ground floor, and a glorious master suite above, with its own sitting room and balcony overlooking the ocean. Chef and butler service complete the air of indulgence.

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.
