Sandy Lane Estate , St. James , Barbados.
Dene Court is an imposing, spacious Villa located in the heart of this world famous estate and just a stone’s throw from the Sandy Lane Golf and Country Club and less than a five minute drive from the Sandy Lane Property Owners Private Beach Facility.
This is a peaceful private retreat for families or groups of friends with enough space in the lush tropical gardens to find a quiet area to read even when the Villa is fully occupied. Most of the activity however centres around the large outside terrace off the main living room where there is plenty of space for alfresco dining as you overlook the large attractive swimming pool.
Inside, the minstrel's gallery is a main feature, off which are four of the bedrooms all with private facilities. The Master bedroom has the additional luxury of a private balcony and dressing room. There is a further fifth double bedroom on the ground floor with an en suite bathroom and it's own private patio.
Set in over an acre of manicured grounds Dene Court is ideal for weddings and entertaining/receptions on a large scale. The large pool situated off the main outdoor terrace provides a very attractive backdrop for photographs and top quality catering
can be provided for any type of event.
We arrived at Dene's Court and from the moment we drove through the gates we knew that it would be a fabulous vacation. We were 3 couples celebrating 25 years of marriage and the home and its grounds exceeded our expectations. The home is extremely well maintained and we have experience renting homes as this is our 3rd rental on the west coast. The staff - Richard the chef, Janelle the house keeper, Winston- evening security and Junior the grounds keeper all were amazing in each of their duties. Each performed their jobs with professionalism, and often you didn't even know they were around. Richard shared his kitchen with me, and Janelle did a wonderful job keeping up with the 6 of us and we even took pictures of the laundry that she cleaning for us - it looked so pretty. Winston kept us feeling safe at night and well the property is more that spectacular. The outdoor fresco dinning was amazing and with the cool Bajan breeze, we were all to enjoy all meals outside. The pool was suitable for lap swimming and I was able to swim in the early morning sunshine. Having access to Sandy Lanes beach was very handy - it was a short walk ( 10 minutes downhill) past the golf course- however if you had any mobility issues the walk back up the hill could be challenging. We oftener walked into Holtown (15 minutes) which provides everything you need - groceries, banks and restaurants. But you probably will not want to eat anywhere else but at Dene's Court as Richard's menu is equal to a 5* restaurant. We even walked to Payne's Bay fish market where Richard arranged for us to pick up the "fresh catch" of the day and he prepared a wonderful buffet of 3-4 different fish dishes. Make sure he makes something with curry - outstanding. You will not be disappointed if you make Dene's Court your home away from home!! Thanks for the great memories
I had the opportunity to stay at Dene court recently and had a wonderful holiday. Dene court exceeded all expectations. This beautiful home is well appointed to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The staff were welcoming and efficient. Although well positioned for world class restaurants we ate in on several evenings as Richard the chef is an accomplished chef and was always willing to produce the most wonderful meals. An added benefit was the beach at sandy lane with the private beach club facilities. It was difficult to decide if we should go to the beach as the gardens at Dene court are immaculate and great for just sitting and enjoying a rum punch. We look forward to returning and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the beautiful home to our friends and family.
Dene Court is a luxurious villa ideal for a big party. The full time chef, Richard, works very hard to cater to every need of the guests. He serves excellent Caribbean food, along with cooked breakfasts and lunches if required, not to forget picnics and great cakes for afternoon tea. He even did all the shopping for us so we didn't have to spend any time in food shops!
The two other staff made sure the villa was kept spotlessly clean and provide clean towels daily and attended to any laundry needs we had.
Overall this was a fantastic place to celebrate a big birthday with a large group of friends, I would highly recommend it!
Dene Court is exactly as shown in the picture profile. The owner has updated all of the bathrooms and the linens. The charming staff do their very best to accommodate your every need. Richard the chef, will work with whatever food you purchase and he adds a lovely Bajan flavor, if that is your preference. Janelle keeps Dene Court impeccably clean.
This house is excellent, for relaxing around a wonderfully spacious pool and outdoor area. It is attached to The Sandy Lane Home Owners club, which is a few minutes away. The beach there, is one of the best on the island.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would consider this property again in the future!
Ten of us had a fabulous time at Dene Court. The house was just lovely and presented us with the ideal location to relax and unwind. From the good-sized pool, to the comfortable terrace, and friendly but not intrusive staff we were all impressed.
The house itself is well-appointed, and since our last visit the rooms have been given a make-over and some fabulous bathrooms have been created. However we didn't spend too much time in our rooms preferring to relax on the terrace beside the pool.
The chef Richard is a real find - not only did he cook us some great Bajan dishes but he was a real pleasure to deal with. His rum punch was pretty good too and he kept us all well hydrated. Likewise the housekeeping staff were efficient and pleasant too.
From booking taxis to booking restaurants and advising us on where to go, they all did their bit. Our realtor too was efficient and booked us into Sandy Lane where we enjoyed a lovely lunch. We also dined at Daphne's but our favourite bar was a bit further along - it was just a wee beach bar but we had a lot of fun there.
Some of us did use the Sandy Lane beach - but mainly to go for a walk in the morning. Our own pool was so pleasant to relax beside we didn't really need to leave the house.
I would definitely recommend the house, we have been before, and we would certainly go back.
Beautiful property with pool, in luxurious Sandy Lane. The most spectacular aspect was the staff. Richard was not a cook but a trained chef. Janel was the most pleasant woman who stayed out of sight, cleaned and washed laundry each day. This was a true vacation with no work on my part...lunches were packed for us, food bought, beds made, floors and baths cleaned each day, etc. We will make it an annual stay.
