The Great House, Christ Church - with Twin Engine Boat and Captain
Description from the manager
The Great House accommodates 16 guests eight in the main house and eight in the four chattel houses. However, an additional four guests may be accommodated for an additional fee.
Consider this a warning: once youve stepped foot into this gated property in Turtle Beach, you might not want to leave. Offering a vast amount of amenities, lush gardens and plenty of space, this is one of our best villas in Barbados for a large group traveling together. Barbados offers a perfect Caribbean getaway thanks to its tranquil waters, vibrant nightlife options and warm climate.
One of the most exciting aspects of staying in this home is that youll have access to its 30-foot pleasure boat, manned by the villas boatman this vessel is available during the day to guests for just the price of fuel. It can be used for waterskiing or wakeboarding or to travel to a neighboring beach. Other amenities include kayaks, a laser sailboat and snorkel gear, though the backyards centerpiece is its large, heated pool, complete with a deck outfitted with cushioned lounge chairs. There are plenty more places to lounge with a drink in hand on a sofa or chair on one of the villas wrap-around covered terraces.
Inside, the airy entrance hall boasts an elegant winding staircase, from here, head towards one of the several reception rooms and sitting areas offering plush sofas in muted colors with lots of throw pillows and access to the terrace (theres also a piano room if youre musically inclined). The fully equipped kitchen offers a range of appliances that range from a tabletop grill to a blender for afternoon cocktails, but let the on-site kitchen staff handle things.
This home can host up to 16 people in its eight bedrooms, as well as an extra four upon request. Four rooms are found in the main home while the remaining suites are located in separate chattel houses. All rooms include Ralph Lauren linens, air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.
Youll be just steps away from snorkeling and swimming in Mullins Beach, and a five-minute drive to the nearby gym and tennis courts. Meanwhile, its a quick 10-minute walk to the restaurants, sites and shops in historic Speightstown.

Coming back to the Great House felt like coming home. We enjoyed the privacy, the wonderful meals at the beautifully set table, the spaciousness and the various places to relax or play. Cressida and her staff were incredibly attentive and helpful.

The Great House lived up to all our expectations. The house was spacious and luxurious, the gardens were beautiful, the staff were excellent and full of information, the food was delicious, and overall there was great attention to detail in all aspects of the service. We had a fantastic time, and with every need catered for we were free to enjoy the island, spend time on the boat, and do whatever we felt like. I would wholeheartedly recommend it! - Viveca S., , UK
