About Katie Shellard
Hi, I am Katie. Welcome to 180 Biflora Row, Sunset Crest. This villa was purchased in 2012 and has been carefully renovated. Modernising this lovely villa was quite a task, but I hope you will agree this is now a very comfortable holiday home.
The villa was built in the 1960s and we wanted to keep the traditional charm of the villa but add some modern touches, such as the pale ceramic floor tiles and useful dishwasher, All the linen and towels have been upgraded to cool white cotton and crockery and cutlery are all new with a generous supply of wine and cocktail glasses. We hope that you will find this villa a warm and welcoming holiday home.
We have high standards, keeping the villa clean and tidy. We expect our guests to do the same and respect the villa. The villa is beautifully cared for by our lovely housekeeper and guests will find crisp white cotton sheets and towels on arrival plus beach towels for use by the pool or beach. If you are looking for a smart, comfortable, Non-smoking, family villa, we would be pleased to welcome you.

Why Katie Shellard chose Sunset Crest
Sun, sun, sun! There are few places in the world you can go during the winter and guarantee it will be sunny and warm. And this is one. If you're looking for an escape from the gloom and rain in the UK or perhaps Canada, look no further. Even when it does rain in Barabados it is always warm.
What makes this villa unique
This is one of the few properties in Sunset Crest that has a private pool. If you'd like to take a dip at 6:00 a.m or midnight, the pool is only a few steps away. No need to share with the neighbours!
We have a very friendly and knowledgeable property manager - Rachel. She will meet you at the villa and show you round. She is happy to advise on anything you may need during your holiday, such as groceries, baby sitting, restaurants.
A membership card for the Sunset Crest beach club is provided and will also get discount at several local stores and cafes.
As we spend several weeks every year in the villa ourselves, we do try to ensure that there is everything you need for a really enjoyable vacation.
Holetown is the centre of the glitzy West coast and staying at Biflora, you are minutes away from all the amenities.This villa is within walking distance of the beach, supermarket, restaurants and bars. If you don't want to hire a car for your stay, you have everything you need a short stroll away. Taxis and buses are easy to get if you are sightseeing or going to the airport.
Guestbook comments from the owner
What a find! We stayed in the same area (Sunset Crest) last year which we found to be quiet and safe and only a few minutes walk from the beech, shops and restaurants. The villa is set in the centre of a fenced garden and has been cleverly upgraded recently including a private, illuminated swimming pool and sun deck which is perfect for those looking to get away from people and not fight over sun loungers.
One of the highlights of our stay was that we seemed to be on the monkey route and several mornings we were being stared at by a troup of at least 15 monkeys walking across the fence. Magic!
The villa is very clean and smart and the kitchen is modern and well equiped and has a verandah perfect for dining and takes in the breeze. If the housekeeper Shirleen offers her daughter's services for an Island Tour take it as we did. We had a great day out which included St Nicholas Abbey (its a plantation house not an Abbey) and now makes its own rum.
Our favorite restaurant was The Cliff which was complete restaurant theatre and a must for a special occasion but Google it and book from home before you go as it is that popular.
We had a wonderful time and would have no hesitation in recommending 180 and we would be happy to go there again (and we have never said that before).
