They first visited Barbados for 1 week in 1994, staying at Sam Lords Castle resort in St Philip on the SE Coast. They loved Barbados and the local Bajans so much they returned the following year & were married on Sam Lord’s beach. They have visited more than 60 times since then and decided to invest in Idyllic Villa in 2001. They built a second villa ‘Beach Haven’ on the Caribbean West Coast in 2006 which is also available for rent.
They are both very particular and very practical hands on people, and have built / refurbished the villas to a very high standard. They are both always kept by the housekeepers in an excellent, clean & well maintained condition. They fully manage the property maintenance and lettings themselves – visiting 3 or 4 times a year to keep everything ship shape – as well as having regular vacations there!
They have many strong friendship links with local residents, so they can introduce guests into the ‘behind the scenes’ Bajan local life if they wish to be more adventurous & involved.
Beach Haven is a freehold detached villa on the West Coast main road, directly fronting the beach of the Caribbean Sea at Prospect, near Fitts Village in the famous parish of St James. It was designed, built and fitted out by John & Marjorie & completed in 2006. It’s close to Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, but also its only a short drive further along the coast to all of the world famous resorts of the ‘Platinum Coast’ frequented by celebrities from all over the world – e.g. Sandy Lane Resort & golf course is only a 10 minute drive away.
The villa is creatively designed on 3 levels to make maximum use of its 2600sq.ft floor area. On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms all with full en-suite bathrooms. On the second floor there is a lounge/bar with patio doors opening onto a roof top sun patio overlooking the blue Caribbean – beautiful for relaxing day or night. It is fully furnished and equipped for a ‘home-from-home’ comfortable, self catering vacation with a housekeeping service included.
The villa is an ideal base away from the tourist resorts but close enough for visiting the beach bars & restaurants the area has to offer, and for exploring the whole island of Barbados.
