DIRECT BEACH FRONT HOME WITH PRIVATE BEACH SIDE SPA

Prospect Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beact Front Villa with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and Beach Side Spa

Welcome to our beach front home. We offer a unique and romantic seaside experience for our guests. You will be as close to the sea as possible on the West Coast. As soon as you open the doors to the House you will see the beautiful water of the Caribbean and hear the gentle lapping of the calm waves that have made the West Coast popular with the rich and famous. From almost every room including the Master Bedroom you will see the clear turquoise water. You will enjoy your meals or cocktails while watching the sunsets on the beautiful and spacious waterfront terrace, which is perfect for entertaining. Just a couple steps from the terrace is our 6 persons beach-side spa. The House has a master bedroom with a gorgeous view of the sea and beach from all windows. There are many tropical flowers, plants and fruit trees around the property. If you want to have a romantic and relaxing vacation than our Villa is a great choice for you. You'll have unforgettable memories of holiday in Barbados.

On the Beach!: Sunny Banks is a coral stone House built over 75 years ago and one of the first beach front properties in our area. The House is directly on the beach and no other home of the West Coast of Barbados allows guest to be as close to the beautiful Caribbean Sea as our property. Zoning laws for the last 30 years do not permit homes to be built so close to the beach. When our family purchased it 15 years ago it was lovingly restored and has had subsequent updating and refurbishments every couple of years. The sea in our area is very calm and perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Just off shore we have beautiful coral reefs with living coral, sponges and sea life. Depending of the tide, time of year and sea it is possible to walk on the beach North as far as the Cliff Restaurant. Many guests walk the beach to Jordans Supermarket in Fitts Village or Il Tempo beach bar. South of our property is Batts Rock Beach and it is possible to walk to Bridgetown in less than a couple hours.

The Spa, Pure Relaxation: The Spa area has to be our favourite place when we get the opportunity to stay at the House. The spa area is surrounded by white picket fencing and shrubs to make it as private as possible yet still let guest have views of the sea while relaxing. It is a luxury therapy spa by Sweetwater Spas with over 35 powerful jets and different seating positions to give a full body massage. After a day of water skiing or playing golf we often watch the sunset with a bottle of wine in the spa. The Spa can only be accessed from steps just off the beach front terrace. Our property manager checks and cleans the spa several times a week. We do not use harsh chloride but the more gentle bromide which is much better for skin.

Our Staff: Beautiful Beach, Beautiful Villa but the other important ingredient to a great holiday is our staff. Just read the reviews about Natalie our faithful housekeeper for almost 10 years and Paulina our attentive property manager. Natalie takes great pride in our property. She cleans the House but more importantly she tries to look after our guest. In fact, some guests say she cleans too much! When you arrive just ask her what fruit we may have on the trees and she will try to get you some. Usually we have limes and bananas all year with our two mango trees and avocado tress bearing about twice a year. Plus a special fruit called a sugar apple and bay leaf tree. Paulina is a gem; she likes to get to know our guest and will at times take them on the Hash House Harrier runs, shopping to Bridgetown Vegetable Market on Saturdays or Fish Market. She is a professional chef by trade too. Paulina is available at all times to solve any problem.

Hi Scott
just wanted to let you know we had a lovely time at the villa, spent days just sitting on the balcony

watching the world go by. Paulina and Natalie were fabulous, we used Cin Cins a few times and enjoyed

the food and the experience. Back home now and its -3 with ice on the cars in the morning.

will be in touch hopefully next year to return.

Many thanks

Pete and Teresa

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 27, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We came to Sunny Banks with the hopes of having at least a reasonably nice place to stay that was convenient to shopping and restaurants without having to rent a car. What we got was so much more than that. It's literally right on the edge of the sea, with an open floor plan and a beautiful covered deck/porch that let's you watch the magnificent sunsets and listen to the waves crashing right below you.
Not only did it exceed our expectations in how nice it was, but the location can't be beat. NO, it is not in your hustling touristy areas, but is right on the bus line that can take you anywhere you want go to on the island and a short walk to the grocery store.The apartment itself was immaculatley clean and well appointed with everything you would need to cook.
We went with our 2 children, 6 & 8 and they loved the little birds that came to visit every day, the games and the fact that they could watch the crabs scurrying around from the porch. There is a little beach to the right, but was told that it was mostly washed away before we got there. A little rocky but still nice enough to spend the day without having to haul every thing needed for a day trip. The public park/beach was a very short walk and has a playground. It is a good place to hang out with sandy beaches in more areas and a lifeguard.

All in all would absolutley recommend to anyone that is not looking for the resorty vacation, is more a DIY type and can manage on their own. The house manager Paulina is very good at attending to your needs if you ask. We had a fabulous time and have told others that of all the places we have vacationed this is one that I would definitely go back to.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Michelle! This was my home for 10 years and my Wife and I love it, so happy that we are able to share this special place with our guest. Paulina our property manager and Natalie the housekeeper work hard to make our guest comfortable and it is great to see that it is working. I hope we will see you again in the future, although we have only been renting the Villa for 2 years already getting repeat guest.

Perfect Villa for our first visit to Barbados

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 3, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We had a great vacation at Sunny Banks. First off, My wife works for a major airline and we decided to visit Barbados last minute, 1 week notice to Scott, the owner. We fly by the seat of our pants, stand-by. 24 hours before our planned departure, the flight loads changed dramatically and we had to change our plans to fly in a day ahead of schedule if we wanted to get on an airplane. I advised Scott of our situation and that we would get a hotel that first night then take a cab to the villa the next day. Scott was so accomodating, he told us hotels were too expensive, and made the villa available to us for that extra night.
Our arrival time was indeterminate, depending on which flight we got on. We got lucky and arrived much earlier than anticipated. Scott and property manager Paulina were on it right away. We called Paulina from the airport, she gave us directions, and met us at the villa. How's THAT for service!!
We found the villa to be very charming. Open, airy and spotlessly clean. It sits on a deep lot, with a sloping, shared driveway down from the street. There are other rental units facing the street, with our villa facing the ocean. Only the 2 bedrooms have A/C, but a breeze passes through the villa. Beautiful balcony right on the waters edge facing west. It sits on a limestone ledge, which juts out about 3-4 feet from the villa, then drops to the sea. There is some sand in front, but mostly rocks. This did not keep us from swimming in front of the villa though. Beaches are public in Barbados, so we did see some foot traffic and fisherman on the ledge at times. No big deal. The sunsets every evening were spectacular!!
Paulina was fantastic. She asked what we wanted to do on the island, made suggestions and even booked our reservations for us. She had our car rental delivered to the villa. She was always one phone call away, and made several visits to us during our stay to make sure things were okay. Scott was also in touch via phone and text messaging, asking how things were, making suggestions on what to do and recommending restaurants, even offering to call to make dinner reservations himself!
And, Natalie. What a great housekeeper! She visited every other day, and cleaned, all day. Provided us with whatever towels and linens we needed. Very friendly.
As for Barbados itself, beautiful water, beaches. Restaurants very expensive. Check menus online first. Oistins on Friday a must!

Exactly what I was after

  • Submitted: Jan 11, 2011

I wanted to go to Barbados and rent a house on the beach and I couldn't have found anywhere better than Sunnybanks. The apartment was airy, spacious, clean and the best bit was that the ocean came right up to the balcony. There was an almost deserted beach a few steps away where you could go snorkelling and see turtles.
We didn't have a car so used the local buses - great fun and got us up and down the west coast easily (don't know how easy it would be to get round more of the island on the bus). There was a supermarket you could walk to along the beach and Holetown was just a short bus ride away with a good choice of restaurants.
Overall - loved it!

Lovely Barbados Property

We had a fantastic time. The Villa was perfect and particularly so when we had my family over for Christmas Day. You can't beat the views, sunsets, beach, and all the amenities.

Natalie, Paulina, and Patrick were wonderful. I wanted to take Natalie home with me. She’s a details girl and really hard working.

Thanks again for renting the Villa to us. We’ll be sure to recommend Sunnybank to other people.

Sunny Banks is a beach-side property in Prospect, St. James. We have a very centralized location making it easy for guest to explore the island. Prospect is between Fitts Village and Batts Rock Beach both less than a 10 min walk away. Prospect is a quiet residential area with a few restaurants and one hotel called the Waves. Less than a 10 min walk is Fitts Village with a grocery store, small cafe and popular beach side Italian restaurant. Guest walking in the opposite direction of Fitts Village will come to Batts Rock Beach also known as Paradise Beach one of the best beaches on the island. It's possible to walk to the edge of Bridgetown on the beach from Batts Rock passing a couple popular beach bars, Mount Gay Rum distillery and the World Famous Kensington Cricket Oval. Our property is on all the major bus routes too.

Golf: We are lucky, although Barbados is a small island Golf is a popular sport and the island has several world class Golf courses. Within a 10 min drive is Sandy Lane with 3 challenging courses and Royal Westmoreland with 2 great courses. On the South Coast just a 20 min drive away, is the Barbados Golf Course and Rockley Beach & Golf club.

Ski: Because of our very calm sea on the West Coast of Barbados is a popular destination for water sports. With very few times a year that the sea is to rough for swimming or water skiing. If you love water sports our property is perfect for arranging a private boat for a day of skiing, tubing or snorkelling. One of the most popular excursions guest take is renting a small ski boat from my friend Gavin with a local guide/pilot for a day water skiing, swimming with the turtles and pulling up to a local beach bar for lunch. My Wife and I do this almost every trip.
