They first visited Barbados for 1 week in 1994, staying at Sam Lords Castle resort in St Philip on the SE Coast. They loved Barbados and the local Bajans so much they returned the following year & were married on Sam Lord’s beach. They have visited more than 60 times since then and decided to invest in Idyllic Villa in 2001. They built a second villa ‘Beach Haven’ on the Caribbean West Coast in 2006 which is also available for rent.
They are both very particular and very practical hands on people, and have built / refurbished the villas to a very high standard. They are both always kept by the housekeepers in an excellent, clean & well maintained condition. They fully manage the property maintenance and lettings themselves – visiting 3 or 4 times a year to keep everything ship shape – as well as having regular vacations there!
They have many strong friendship links with local residents, so they can introduce guests into the ‘behind the scenes’ Bajan local life if they wish to be more adventurous & involved.
John & Marjorie Davis purchased this villa in 2001
Idyllic Villa is one of 3 privately owned villas on Coral Point Estate, built on an outcrop at the end of Sam Lords South beach – the beach used by Marriott’s for their weekly themed Shipwreck Party nights. The location and view over the sea is so absolutely stunning it cannot be fully appreciated by description or photos – it has to be visited to be believed. Many visitors, who know the island well, have said this has to be the best villa location in the whole of Barbados. It has been rented for many purposes ranging from corporate / political events & business meetings to romantic sojourns, weddings and family vacations.
The private gated estate provides privacy and seclusion in a quieter area of Barbados – well away from the tourist centres. However it is only 12 minutes drive from the airport & just a mile along the coast from the world famous Crane Resort which is renowned for having one of the top 10 beaches in the world.
The SE corner of Barbados is renowned for its refreshing cooling breeze which is hardly felt elsewhere, and St Philip has the least rainfall of all the Barbados parishes, as many clouds pass overhead & don’t start to rain until further inland. With Sam Lords Castle now derelict and closed, the local beautiful beaches are almost always deserted – This truly is the perfect location for a quiet ‘get away from it all’ relaxing vacation in Barbados.
This prime beach front property is wholly owned by an offshore Ltd company, registered in the BVI. It was specifically established to legally own this sole prime property in Barbados. Purchasing the shares with offshore funds, simply transfers offshore cash to an offshore investment in property ownership, via a simple offshore transaction. Property values may well have bottomed out & this may be the right time to reinvest cash into future capital growth potential and own a fantastic property in the process!
