Mount Standfast Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Villa With Pool And Magnificent Views

Built in 2006 this beautiful 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom villa is our family holiday home. Its prime location on the ridge takes advantage of the magnificent uninterrupted views out to Sea whilst still being close enough to be within walking distance of the local beach and facilities. The stunning views are beautiful by day and in the evening the outside areas are fabulous for al fresco dining/BBQ or simply sit under the stars with a glass of wine and watch the cruise ships sail off into the distance. Our villa combines the luxury of Barbados with the comforts of home! A huge wooden deck leads from the house to the pool with gardens to all sides. The lounge area is split level with comfy sofas, armchairs and reading sofa. The entrance to the house has its own covered verandah for escaping the sun. The villa has TV, DVD and a large stock of music and films plus games and a small library. WIFI is available throughout the property and out on the deck/ pool area. Local telephone calls are free.

Having spent several months a year in Barbados over the last decade I have acquired great knowledge (and contacts) on the Island. Indeed I have written several features for UK magazines (e.g. Rare, Place in the Sun) about the attractions on the Island. I can arrange almost anything for our guests from a complete holiday itinerary, car hire, restaurant reservations, boat trips to taxis and florists! We want you to enjoy our home and this beautiful Island as much as we do!

Whilst a car is not essential it is recommended if you wish to take advantage of what Barbados has to offer and the villa has 2 private parking spaces.

Our housekeeper Sylvia is a wonderful local lady with a vast array of knowledge and information and included in the rental rates she will visit twice weekly to clean the house, change the beds/towels and generally just ensure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Guests who require the housekeeper on a more frequent basis will pay her direct for additional days.

Our gardener and pool man attend weekly.

About Barbara Snaith

I pride myself on not just renting out our home to guests but offering them a bespoke service which should enable them to enjoy the house and their holiday to the full. Regular email/text communication gives the guest peace of mind that when they arrive hot and tired there are no nasty surprises awaiting them.

I am a self confessed perfectionist and love nothing better than organising and planning to make sure I offer my guests a first class service.

Barbara Snaith purchased this villa in 2006

Why Barbara Snaith chose Mount Standfast

The minute you peer through the front door and see the view to the Caribbean you will know why we bought this house.

All guests receive a brochure when booking which explains the history behind how and why we bought No1and our relationship with the Island. Google 'Barbara Snaith - A place in the sun' and read my article for the magazine explaining why we left a gated community home to buy this one!

What makes this villa unique

The luxury of Barbados with all the comforts of home.

Dining out and lazing on the beach are a great way to enjoy Barbados but dining out on your own verandah and lying by your own pool whilst soaking in our fantastic view are the best way to enjoy Barbados. Thats what No1 is ... not a holiday let but your own home for the duration of your stay. Careful planning and communication with my guests means the holiday is tailored to their specific needs whether I am booking the best waterside table at the Cliff for a honeymoon couple, arranging baby equipment for families or that special private catamaran cruise for a 60th birthday celebration. I want for my guests what I want myself - a relaxing enjoyable vacation which will create memories that last a lifetime.

The most amazing honeymoon in this gorgeous home!!

  • 5 of 5

Well....where do I begin, before we even got there, Barbara (the owner) had helped me out with SO many requests!! And for that I cannot thank her enough, Barbara seems to know everyone and everything in relation to Barbados, and as it was Christmas/NYE season, she recommended we book a few restaurants and trips up, which she helped me with, including managing to get us NYE tickets to the very very popular Lonestar...we had an amazing again BIG thank you. Also a huge thank you to Sylvia the housekeeper, who cooked us a wonderful bajan feast for our first night there...xx

Anyway back to the property...we arrived about 5pm...just in time for sunset, and what an amazing sunset it was, the views from this house are outstanding! Every single night I was amazed...even when it was cloudy it was stunning.

The house is gorgeously furnished, every single room is lovely...but the main bedroom had to be favourite, with it's private balcony, again...looking out to unbelievable views!

Me and my new husband honestly had the best time here....the beach is literally just down the road, and we did visit there on occasion (JuJu's bar was always busy and the little boutique shop on the beach was my fav)....but we preferred to stay by the pool the majority of the time, playing a spot of rummy on the deck, or reading one of the many books they have on the bookcase and drinking Banks beers in the sun.

The location of this house is wonderful, we rented a car and we got to see so much of the island, but it really isn't can get a bus to Holetown or Mullins Bay in the other direction. There's so much to do we never got bored!! Limegrove mall have a fabulous cinema on rainy days!!

Anyway... I just want to say a huge thank you again to Barbara for this amazing experience and I cannot wait to book up again for our 1 year anniversary...maybe with friends this time to show them how great it is!!

Fulfilled every expectation and more!

  • 5 of 5

Having looked at the photographs so many times before our arrival we felt immediately "at home" in this beautiful house. Having been to Barbados many times staying at hotels this was our first foray into self catering. We were travelling with our daughter, son in law and two granddaughters aged 3 and 4 and decided that this was the best option for our family.

Well it was just perfect. Sylvia was there to welcome us and proved to be an invaluable friend on the island who was always happy to help with our queries and kept the house beautiful.

The furnishings, towels and bed linens are all top quality and I can honestly say we wanted for nothing, every need was provided for. The beds were extremely comfortable, the house so well equipped . The large decking area and the pool were ideal for the children and we just has so much fun. The shady terrace was wonderful if it got too hot and ideal for our family meals.

Barbara had prebooked us a 7 Seater suzuki "van" which we couldn't have done without, both to introduce our family to the island and going for supplies to the local supermarket.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend both Barbara and her lovely house to everyone and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Fabulous villa, sunset ocean views from deck

  • 5 of 5

This is a great villa in a great setting. The deck with pool has uninterrupted views over the ocean and it is only a five minute walk to a great beach. The villa was spotless with a very friendly and helpful local manager. Barbara the owner couldn't have done more to make our stay a success, she booked our car hire but best of all recommended great restaurants and got us waterside tables all over christmas. She also recommended a local cook who came to the villa and cooked us a private bajan meal - great value. The villa is right in the centre of the west coast which must be the most convenient part of the island to stay with everywhere an easy drive. I wouldn't stay anywhere else but here if you are going to barbados.

Stunning Setting, Beautiful Accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we made contact with owner, Barbara, we really felt that we had made a great choice on our holiday accommodation. She has been such a great help in terms of individual advice on car hire, restaurants, places to see and visit – she has a wealth of knowledge about the house and the locality. Any requests for information and clarification on detail were responded to promptly and accurately.

All that she described, and all that the website promotes didn’t really do justice to this lovely home! When my wife stepped over the threshold she gasped and it even left my daughter speechless – some feat! It just feels so luxurious – from the furniture and fittings, the cleanliness, the kitchen facilities and of course not forgetting the very welcome ‘welcome pack’.

Step through the lounge and through the fantastic outdoor seating and dining area and you’re confronted with a view to die for. I spent many hours sitting and soaking up the ever-changing view of the Caribbean, and looked forward to what tonight’s sunset would have in store for us.

The master bedroom is a particularly spectacular feature of the house - 'facetiming' with less fortunate family members back home in UK left them green with envy!

Housekeeper Sylvia is a god-send and another great source of local knowledge – a real treasure – and nothing was too much trouble; she kept the house looking immaculate throughout our stay.

The location is superb, so quiet and yet easy to find and so close to the beautiful beach and all that it presents. Local beaches were really quiet for our July/August stay and the sea was so calm and clear.

The island is so beautiful and the people so friendly and relaxed – Store House Gap made sure that we had a great holiday – no stress, no hassle and no excuse for not kicking back and relaxing for the duration.

We’ll be back.
