About the villa

This fantastic property is located at Polo Ridge in St. James, near Holders House, just a 30-minute drive from the airport and within easy reach of the sandy beach of Paynes Bay and several good restaurants. Looking over the beautiful West Coast, Stanford House offers plenty of space, comfort and incredible sea views. The villa is set in over an acre of landscaped gardens and is a tropical retreat that's made for outdoor living. The large open-air terrace has a fully-functioning bar and cosy lounge seating area, and leads straight out to a generously furnished pool deck and infinity-edged swimming pool. There's also a romantic al fresco dining gazebo, and even a self-contained private guest cottage with lovely coastline views. Inside the main villa, a spectacular eight-foot aquarium separates the main lounge from a media-rich TV room. There are three bedrooms with en suite shower rooms, but it's the spacious master bedroom that offers the most indulgence. This is a suite made for relaxation, with a private dressing room, seating area and a large en suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi-style bathtub and walk-in shower. This private villa is a wonderful choice for an intimate wedding setting. With up to 50 guests allowed, the beautiful infinity pool and fairy-light covered gazebo provides the most special accompaniment to the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea.

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.
