Sunset Crest Villa Rental Photos and Description

Two LARGE Studio Apartments with pool and ONE two bedroomed VILLA

You couldnt be much closer to the beach on West Coast - a fantastic property with pool - everything for your holiday in Barbados. High standard,of furnishings, fittings, and everything else needed for comfort plus beautiful tropical 'jungle' garden.. We offer free wireless internet ,cable TV, DVD, radio/CD, telephone. ... Set in a tropical paradise of fruit trees and beautiful foliage and flowers.. Well located in a quiet cul de sac and a few minutes walk to beach.....

Self Catering at its best -

TWO STUDIO APARTMENTS - From the upper apartment you can view the Sunset , looking over the trees to the sea.

The lower apartment has an additional patio area situated in the back garden, as well as a front patio with garden view..

We have a lovely pool area also which is private i.e. for the use of guests only. It is clean and sparkling and a welcome escape from the beach or the Beach House Pool,

Two lovely apartments at Plumbago Avenue, Sunset Crest, St. James are located in a most sought after area of the West Coast of Barbados. and we have the added attraction of our own private pool and yet we are within a five mnute walk to the Beach, to the Beach House where all guests are automatically Members and free to use the facilities there.

My property is maintained to a high standard and we are constantly upgrading - it is clean, fresh and welcoming - spotless. The whole property is fully screened for any unwanted 'guests' !!

The beaches of the West Coast are within minutes walk and the area abounds with activities available - including two world class golf courses, tennis courts, horse riding, every water sport imaginable and lots of shops, restaurants and bars.

We are in a quiet location, without traffic noise - and a parkland area next door to the property gives access to all the above activities without having to run the gauntlet of the traffic - of which, of late, there is a lot in Barbados.

You can relax by the pool and do nothing....its up to you.

We also have a private Beach Club with its own pool which you can also use if you want to be right by the beach - and you can use this as a base for a day walking the beaches either to the North or the South of the area.....there are bathroom facilities here.....and the Beach House right next door has a beautiful Restaurant and Bar.

There is now a beach bar also. overlooking the sea where cocktails can be enjoyed called 'Drift'...check it out - you will be welcome

Plumbago : The two apartments are available for rent either seperately or together - so suitable for two or four people. The owner lives in the Villa which is adjoining the two apartjents and is readily available on site to help with making your time here the most enjoyable....the pool is solely for the use of whoever is living on the property.

There is a lovely balcony on both apartments and extra outside patio with access from the lower apartment..... fully equipped kitchens and very large bathrooms cum dressing rooms. They are bright and airy and very comfortable. The lower apartment has an additional patio which leads from the apartment to the back garden.

The property faces West but the cooling winds that come from the East keep these two places cool as there are windows/doors which allow the winds to pass through. The apartments were built to null and void the need for Air Conditioning - the windows are louvre windows and the doors also - so built to maximise the Trade Winds that blow.

There is a pool deck also that is for the sole use of the residents of the apartments and Villa.

General: Sunset Crest has grown dramatically in the last twenty years and is now a major hub on the Island. We have everything here and there is very rarely the need for a Car as the local bus service is so good - running from early morning to late at night to most popular places on the island. . There is a lively atmosphere about the area with lots of eating places and local bars where the toursts and locals meet in very friendly atmospheres.

The beaches are all close by and one can walk both North and South from or own Beach Club and one amazing beach follows the other. The swimming is to die for with most beaches on this Coast havng good shade from the trees that line the Coast.

Barbados offers a variety of things to do or you can do nothing, according to your mood..

Everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5
This was the third time that we had visited Barbados and having been disappointed with the last property we had rented, were we a little apprehensive as to what might greet us, but from the moment we walked into the apartment, we knew we had made the right choice. We rented the upper apartment, for sixteen nights, it may be described as a studio but don't be put off, it is enormous, spacious, light and airy, we didn't need to use the air-conditioning at all. The apartment was spotlessly clean and we've never had so much room for our clothes. Diane (the owner) was on hand to greet us and explain everything. The pool area is well maintained as are the gardens. As for location, it is perfect, set three roads back from the main road, it is quiet, yet only about 5mins walk to the beach, restaurants and supermarket. There are a wide range of restaurants in Holetown, our favourite being The Beach House, a little pricey but the food is superb and if you can get a table by the shore, it only adds to the experience. Diane was helpful and friendly, giving us advice whenever we needed it. We would not hesitate to recommend Plumbago and we will certainly be returning.

Great appartment

  • 5 of 5
We've had a great stay at Diane's place in Sunset Crest.

It's a nice house with all comforts in it.
When you wheter you wan't to sit in the sun or in the shade, everything's possible. Rather barbecue than cook?......Possible.

The location of it is also perfect. Not to close to the big road, so it's a quiet invironment. But just close enough to walk to the beach, supermarket or bus stop. (All about 5 minutes.)

If you're searching for a nice place near holetown on Barbados....This one's it!

This apartment complex was a great place for us. Has everything you need, close to beaches, grocery stores, coffee shops. Diane was a great host, had access to the pool at anytime, which my husband very much appreciated. Definitely will come back to stay here.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5
I was very particular about my requirements when searching for accommodation as I was travelling alone on this occasion and I can honestly say I hit the jackpot with this lovely apartment. I stayed in the upper apartment .
It was very spacious, well furnished and with more storage space in the bathroom/dressing room than you will ever need. Very comfortable bed and pillows, which is a must.
The kitchen was fully equipped.
Late afternoon sitting on the west facing balcony was a treat.
The property is in well cared for gardens with a pool and lounging chairs and the water was a comfortable temperature
As for location, it is ideal for everything, the shopping mall and beach just minutes away.
Many thanks to Diane for her company and help during my time there.

Absolutely the Best!!!

  • 5 of 5
Suzanne and I stayed in Diane's upper apartment for 4 weeks. It was advertised as a Studio, but would better be described as a 1 Bedroom. It is very large with a spacious bedroom cum living/dining room, a separate, well equipped kitchen and a large separate dressing room with shower and toilet. The balcony looks West to catch the wonderful colours as the Sun sets over the Caribbean. There is a sparkling pool which we enjoyed each late afternoon as we relaxed after a day in full sun on the beach.

The Holetown shopping mall and the upscale LimeGrove Mall are within an easy 5 minute walk across the adjacent park. Same with the super Platinum coast beaches with excellent snorkling within walking distance at Paynes Bay for the turtles, and Crystal Beach and Folkestone Marine Park for fish and corals. The Paynes Bay fish market isn't far either - go there for the freshest tuna, marlin, swordfish ever at an unbelievably low price; try the rum and raisin at the nearby ice cream café.

Diane, our host, is a treasure. Very welcoming and helpful; always ready for a chat or to advise on where to eat, drink or be merry.

Overall, one of the best places we have stayed in our 20 years of self-catering in N. America, Europe and the Caribbean - worth 10 Stars!

ONE TWO BEDROOMED VILLA AND TWO STUDIO APARTMENTS.

This area is unsurpassable for visitors and all tastes are catered for...one can walk everywhere. The beach is a few minutes walk away as are the shops, restauants, bars and now two VIP cinemas.

On Plumbago Avenue we are particularly blessed as we are located at the end of a cul de sac and right next door to lovely parkland. The park gives access to all the amenities of Holetown. It is NOT a playpark for children, so quiet and restful surrounded by similar houses like mine, all with large gardens....and NO NOISE from traffic which can impact on ones serenity.

your own DRIVER pick up can be arranged for your arrival and departure.

Buses to all part of the island are frequent.

Beautiful beaches are just a stones throw away from the property as are all the amenities of the area, including golf, tennis, horse riding, diving and every known watersport. There are lots of shops and supermarket, cafes, bars and restaurants of every description which cater for all budgets. In February we have the Holetown Festival

You wll also have use of our private Beach Club which is a few minutes walk away - this gives access to the beach wth lockers for your personal items - so you can stroll up and down the beach unencumbered. There are showers, wash rooms, , restaurant and bar there too - a beautiful setting ...also a new cocktail bar called 'DRIFT' next to the Beach House.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE - THE NEW LIME GROVE COMPLEX WITH CINEMA, WINE BARS, UPMARKET SHOPS , IS NOW UP AND RUNNING. And a 'must visit' location

Notes:
The pool is central to this property and is for the exclusive use of guests and we have found that there is no problem with the sharing by our guests, as they get to know each other and it is a favourite spot for hanging out, having a chat or a sundowner - or if you dont want to be sociable, you have your own private patio or the back garden . The pool is about twenty eight feet long and l5 foot wide at its widest point - it is amoeba shaped with a handrail and also a ladder. The deep end is 5 foot six inches deep and the shallow end 3 foot deep. It is well maintained and always sparklingly clean - when the sun is out the finish of diamond brite which has been used on the pool makes it look like the sea when the sun is out and it is a cloudless sky....very inviting. THERE IS LOTS OF SPACE FOR SITTING OUT , READING, LOUNGING OR HAVING THAT HARD WORKED FOR COCKTAIL ! WE OFFER FREE WI FI, FREE TELEPHONE FOR LOCAL CALLS, FREE LAUNDRY FACILITIES
