The covered terrace with lounge and dining area, the pool deck with comfortable loungers, and the gazebo all provide ample choices for outdoor living. Sandy Lane beach is only a 10 minute walk away, and here you’ll find a private cabana with sun loungers, a basic kitchen and shower for your exclusive use. There are also shops and restaurants only a five minute drive away.

Inside, there is a large kitchen and a comfortable sitting room with French doors opening to the terrace. There is also the first of four beautifully furnished en suite bedrooms and an additional bathroom, which is conveniently positioned to serve as a changing room when using the pool. On the upper level there are three further bedrooms with en suite shower rooms, two doubles and a twin. There is also a charming self-contained cottage with private plunge pool in the grounds, perfect for couples looking for a romantic spot or small families seeking a little privacy.

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.
