About the property

Beautiful 3 BR Villa, a Short Walk to Private Beach Club, Shops and Restaurants!

Captains Cottage is truly the perfect spot for any type of traveler. We even have a maid who comes free of charge twice a week for any guest staying 7 days or more! She will clean the entire house, make the beds, and be able to help you with any island related questions.

WIFI in the house too of course!

Being a part of the Sunset Crest Community by staying at Captains Cottage you are granted access to the Beach club pool which is just a walk away. It has recently been renovated and is a beautiful spot to relax by the pool right on the beach! It is even has a short boardwalk right along the water. There are lounge chairs, changing rooms, private showers and everything you need to have a relaxing day in the shower.

Sandy Lane Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the world, is a short car ride or walk to get to. Paynes Bay is also right near by which is my favorite beach to go to.

The furnished porch is a great place to relax and have a cold Bajan Rum Punch! The house has 3 bedrooms with room to sleep 6 very comfortably along with two full bathrooms.

The kitchen is large and opens up into the dining and living room areas. Enough space and cooking utensils to cook up a storm!

As a guest you will have access to the entire house, the front porch, and backyard. Each room has their own air conditioning unit. Access to the garage, where there is a washer and dryer will vary depending on length of stay. High Speed internet throughout the house. Gated in driveway to safely park your car.

Sunset Crest is a beautiful quiet neighborhood in St. James Barbados. It has always been a family friendly and tourist friendly area with access to so much just a walk away.

Captains Cottage has a gated driveway right out front making safe parking a breeze if you choose to rent a car during your stay. The buses that run along the coast road super cheap and convenient as well! Just walk down to Highway 1 (The Coast Road) and you are there. There is enough right by Captains Cottage that will make your stay amazing no matter what!

My family and I have had this house in our family for dozens of years and would love for you to enjoy the space as much as we have. Contact me at any time of the day and I would be happy to give you more information!

About Marc Saputo

I am a long time traveler and father of 2. I have been many places but Barbados is by far my favorite and I am happy to be a host for a property on such a beautiful island. I am originally from outside of New York City and have worked there for years now. Traveling is my passion and something I will enjoy for years to come.

Marc Saputo purchased this villa in 1976

Why Marc Saputo chose Sunset Crest

In 1976 my father had this build from the ground up. When I took over the property in 2011 I had the kitchen and common areas renovated along with brand new furniture. We also added brand new air conditioning units in each of the 3 bedrooms making for a great nights sleep! I truly hope that you can enjoy this property as I have for dozens of years.

What makes this villa unique

We have a maid that comes at no additional charge depending on your length of stay. Our gated in porch is a great place to have an ice cold rum punch and just hang out! With access to the beach club which is a short walk away you cant beach the poolside hangout and ease of access to the beach. Not to mention the new air conditioners in each bedroom along with the open spaced kitchen you simply cannot beat it!

  • 4 of 5

Spent 3 weeks in Barbados and enjoyed our stay in the Captains Cottage in Holetown. The house was close to the beach, pool and grocery stores. Only a 10 minute walk. Veronica the housekeeper was very helpful and always available and checked up on us regularly. Owner was also very accommodating. Lots of restaurants in the area. The bus service iseasy to use and the people are very friendly. Would definitely stay in this house again if I go to Barbados again.

A good home from home

  • 4 of 5

The villa comfortably accommodated 3 adults and a toddler with more than enough room for us all. There was everything you needed to enjoy your stay plus good wifi and regular house keeping. The property was clean but could do with a few modernisations but nothing that made it unpleasant or uncomfortable in any way. A good location to Holetown's amenities and a great base. The well equipped kitchen meant we could enjoy home cooked meals too. We did suffer with mosquitoes especially in the master bedroom as there is an ensuite shower room but there are window meshes and plenty of repellent plugs in the cupboard. I'd recommend for people to come prepared with repellants. Plus there had been wet weather. Over all, we really enjoyed our stay and found the owner and house keeper both very accommodating and helpful. I would certainly recommend the villa to friends visiting this part of the island.

Car: not necessary

Our villa is in a community called Sunset Crest, St. James. It is located not far from the famous Sandy Lane hotel and the new shopping mall with tons of shops and a movie theatre. We are a 5 minute walk to the beach/private pool club, amazing restaurants and great shops. Some people rent a car but you can walk to the supermarket and restaurants if needed.
