Set on nearly two acres of lush tropical grounds this beautifully decorated and spacious Colonial-style villa is one of our top villas in Barbados. Known as “Little England,” the island of Barbados combines British charm and Caribbean flair and offers plenty of sun, tranquil waters and vibrant nightlife.
Chat with loved ones on the plush patio furnishings out on the property’s covered terrace. If you grow warm, head into the Italian, mosaic-tiled swimming pool that sits in the center of beautifully manicured grounds, looking towards the sea. Later, enjoy an alfresco meal on the large dining table, with seating for up to 20, then take in a sunset on the far end of the lawn in the Chinese gazebo that also has seating for up to 14 and features a wet bar and fridge.
Built in the ‘60s, this Colonial-style home is constructed of coral stone and boasts a spacious interior decorated with antiques and artwork that includes a collection of Haitian paintings. The airy living room features mainly white furnishings, soaring 14-foot ceilings and walks directly out onto the terrace. You won’t need to lift a finger during your stay, let the villa’s chef take care of the meals and the housekeeping staff ensure the place stays tidy.
The main home features five well-appointed bedrooms complete with high- quality furnishings and linens. All the rooms in the main house include air conditioning, private en-suite bathrooms, a television and small fridge. An additional bedroom with air conditioning and an en-suite is located in the separate cottage and a final room is found in the self-contained Chattel house.
Located just around a half mile to the Cobblers Cove beach, you can enjoy safe swimming in the roped off area where you’ll discover excellent snorkeling opportunities. A five-minute drive brings you to Speightstown where you can shop and dine in elegant destinations.

A wonderful old villa with a ton of character, beautiful grounds, awesome beach and view. The chef was excellent and did everything we asked. His blend of seasonings on fish, pork, and chicken were outrageous. The food and bevererage bill was extremely higher than in Jamacia last year.....almost 4x...the staff was just okay. Staff not very attentive until the last day or two... Accomodations were great, comfortable, clean and neat. Staff could have done a better job sprucing up the grounds each day or twice a day.
