Barbados offers some of the very best in luxury accommodation set against the breathtaking backdrop of the sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea and white sand beaches. Should you manage to tear yourself away from the beach or the pool of your private villa, take a spin on the tees at the nearby Sandy Lane Golf Club or Royal Westmorland, or if you prefer indulge in some luxury retail therapy at the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in nearby historic Holetown.
Pink Cottage is a luxury beachfront villa set in the grounds of a 20 acre private beachfront estate in Barbados, but you would be forgiven for thinking that you have arrived at an English country manor as you pass the stately main house Heron Bay with its soaring Palladian façade. The surrounding manicured grounds are complete with topiary, box gardens, tennis court, stream and a grand garden folly.
The shell pink coral stone exterior and the friendly staff welcomes you, and the sound of the ocean gently lapping just beyond immediately lulls you into a relaxed state of mind. As you enter the living room a skylight floods the space with natural light and pocket doors, within which a state of the art media centre is housed, open onto a dining terrace with pool and garden views. This luxury Barbados villa consists of a main building housing two en suite bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, while two separate annexes each contain one- bedroom suites.
Elegant interiors are dressed in shades of cool white punctuated only by tropical blooms and the stunning views outdoors across the Olympic length lap pool and a meandering lily laden stream. The leaves in the coconut grove sway seductively and the intoxicating scent of frangipani blooms and ocean breezes fill the air. A wooden gazebo complete with a bed and billowing curtains is nestled under shady trees between the beach and the pool and is cheekily referred to as the Honeymoon Suite due to its popularity with couples.
Shells are a re-occurring motif in this elegant and exclusive home and scallop reliefs can be found on the living room walls and around bathroom mirrors while oversize shell ornaments re-enforce the initial impression...this is the quintessential luxury beach cottage.
An elegant coastal style pervades with exposed wood ceilings soaring above four poster beds, draped in luxurious linens and gauzy curtains. Spacious marble en suite bathrooms offer indulgent pampering, with both bath and shower options under the glow of chandelier lighting, complimentary chemical free signature Bamford toiletries and luxurious monogrammed robes.
Enjoy the days on a pristine beach snorkeling over coral reefs, water skiing or sailing, or soaking up the rays on a lounger by the pool. A sunrise walk on the beach is a great way for early birds to start the day but if you are a late riser be sure to take in the spectacular Caribbean sunsets.
Barbados offers many varied dining choices but you may wish to spend some of your evenings in your villa enjoying the gourmet delights prepared by your in-house Chef. An intimate seaside terrace allows for informal dining or pre-dinner cocktails overlooking the sea and as the day winds down with its multihued sunset candlelit lanterns around the property echo the starry sky....Read more
