About the villa

An ideal house for an informal family holiday, Latitude offers laid-back luxury, right by the beach. At first glance, the villa presents its traditional persona, with its coral stone construction, a porch and walled courtyard at the entry, and a full length veranda, on the seafront side, beneath a first floor balcony. And this classic country-house impression is confirmed by oriental rugs in the cosy study, understated elegance in the three en suite bedrooms, and cook service for a touch of indulgence. The villa’s second nature, though, is to entertain. So contemporary facilities include an integrated electronic home management system, high speed internet access, state-of-the-art entertainment systems, a small gym, exercise jets in the beachfront plunge pool, and a poolside bar and barbecue. Overlooking the pool and sea, the covered veranda is furnished for dining and sundowners. And doors lead in from here to a smart and spacious kitchen, open-plan to the convivial living room. Set at the edge of Gibbs Beach, with water sports nearby and a beach bar/restaurant 700m away, the villa is within 5km of Speightstown, Holetown and the Royal Westmoreland Golf Course.

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.
