A beautiful Balinese style 4 Bedroom Villa in a tropical setting with beautiful landscaped gardens and 30' infinity pool overlooking the ocean. All the amenities to thoroughly enjoy your vacation within a tastefully decorated Balinese style home. Ancient grove blends naturally into the outside world with many terraces to create a unforgettable Caribbean experience.

We strive to provide a memorable one of a kind experience in Barbados, with stunning views overlooking a vast luscious gully on the north west of the island.

A quiet comfortable stay, with all the comforts of home but the feel of living within a tropical jungle.

All the bedrooms are equipped with carefully selected premium linens, pillows and towels. Our attention to details goes a long way to making your travel experience even more memorable.

The 30 foot infinity edge pool, pool deck, lounge chairs and shaded gazebo are there for your enjoyment.

The home is available for its guests exclusively. We will be there to greet you upon your arrival, show you around, let you know all the inns and out of Barbados and then let you settle in to experience it in your own way.

Not to worry, we will always be close by if there is anything else you require.

Ancient grove is perfectly located on the west coast of Barbados within a 8 minute drive to some of the worlds best beaches, restaurants and shopping.

Located in a safe and unique setting that overlooks a deep gully, guests are immersed in a lush environment that allows the opportunity to see families of green monkeys playing in the treetops below.

Ancient Grove is a short 5 minute drive or 20 walk to the wonderfully fresh vegetable and fish markets of Speightstown. There are many options for dining including first class restaurants such as the Lone Star and Fish Pot close by.

Pristine white sand beaches fully equipped with lounge chairs and water sport options are within an eight minute drive.

Because there is so much to see and do in Barbados we highly recommend hiring a car so that your experience here is optimized.

Ancient grove is a short drive away from two championship golf courses; Royal Westmoreland and Apes hill as well as polo and tennis clubs.

At Ancient grove our intention is to make our guests experience as special as possible and we are happy to arrange to have the home stocked with your favorite wines prior to arrival as well as a private chef to prepare a five course dinner. ($)

Yoga classes and therapeutic massages have a long history at the villa and always an option within 24 hour notice.($)

About Brian Newsam

My name is Brian, I am originally from Montreal, but lived in Barbados for 5 years during which I fulfilled a lifelong dream of building two wonderful homes and living in the Caribbean. I own a renovations company and enjoy architecture and design. I am an avid traveller and love to discover new places and have new experiences.

Why Brian Newsam chose St. Peter

I designed and built this property because I was inspired by the majestic beauty of the land on which we chose to build.

What makes this villa unique

The house has the luxury of a constant breeze keeping you cool day and night. The outdoor living is truly special and allows for much of your time to be spent outside enjoying the beautiful view in total comfort.

We really enjoyed staying here. The location is excellent and very private, with the house overlooking a green treed vally (fantastic views down to the coast!). Would definetly recommended hiring a car for the stay though, as it is remote.

The house itself is bright, spacious and airy. With a big communal living room and outdoor seating. The pool is shared with the other house, also owned by Brian, but the houses are quite private from eachother.

All in all it was a great, relaxing holiday and would 100% recommend, especially for the great views and remote location.

This place was fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

This place was fabulous. It takes some time to get there from the airport, but it is so worth it.Those who are looking for a place to relax and to enjoy peacefulness will definitely love this cozy place

The house is wonderful!When we first arrived at the apartment we had beers and juice boxes already waiting in the fridge in the very-well equipped kitchen, which included essentials like olive oil, salt, pepper, pots and pans, plates, cups, cutlery and even a cheese grater. We were quite happy and comfortable with the accommodation and how everything worked. Fresh towels and sheets awaited us on the second floor landing, which features a very clean bathroom and bedroom that had lovely views . The neighbourhood was safe, the locals were helpful and kind, and we had so much privacy - we truly felt at home.. We had such a wonderful stay that we honestly cannot wait for our next visit! A huge thank you to Brian for an unforgettable experience.

Paradise in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

Brian's home in the hills of Barbados is gorgeous, private and so relaxing. We are a family with 3 children (ages 3 to 11) who travelled with 2 other adults and we still had an extra room to spare. The property was well-maintained throughout our 10-day stay and offered a gorgeous pool that we used daily for morning and early evening dips, as well as a lovely backyard lounge area. We explored many different beaches throughout our stay ranging from a 10-min to a 30-min drive away. The kids enjoyed hunting for the frogs, toads and lizards that could be found on the property, and we saw monkeys in the yard as well. Close to both east and west coast beaches. Near Speightstown which we loved because there were plenty of amenities without being touristy. Local Bajans were lovely. We were worried that there was no air conditioning - but none was needed with a lovely evening breeze and great ceiling fans. A beautiful vacation property. Thank you, Brian (and Rachael)! We will definitely be back.

Ancient Grove is located in a small neighbourhood, within 5 minutes drive of the west coast of the island, where there are many stunning beaches to enjoy. The house is located near the edge of a deep gully filled with lush vegetation, birds and monkeys, and beyond that a wonderful view of the Caribbean Sea. The house is also within a 15 minute drive of the East Coast of the island with its ragged hills and the roaring Atlantic Ocean, it makes for a wonderfully scenic drive and also offers several excellent surf spots. About 10-15 minutes south of Ancient Grove is the wonderful lifestyle center Limegrove in Holetown, with many high end stores,bars and restaurants, as well as a VIP cinema.
