Further details for this vacation rental
This house is situated in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. We designed the house to take advantage of the breeze. Louvered doors and windows, vaulted ceilings and wide open spaces keep the house cool and comfortable. The doors between the living room and the covered patio or veranda open to create a 12 foot opening, blending the indoors with outdoors. The patio includes a lounge area, dining area and adjacent to that, a sun deck with loungers. We are well away from the major tourist areas and the crowds they attract. Between Holetown and Speightstown, we are a short walk to Mullens beach, with their water sports and restaurant, and Gibbs beach, a beautiful beach unspoiled by over development. A convenience store is about a 10 minute walk away with a bus stop about 5 minutes. This house is designed and equipped to be lived in as a home.
Be adventurous, ride the local buses to the more remote areas. Walk the rugged coastline or sandy beaches. Enjoy the inland hikes or Harrison cave. Take in horse racing, polo, museum, and a fish fry.
