About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Stunning Nature Views, Tropical Sanctuary

Ancient Grove I is decorated with many pieces we obtained on our travels to Bali, we appreciate style and comfort and feel this home lends itself to appreciating the outdoors as much as the comforts of the interior.

We select our linens and pillows carefully and realize the attention to details goes a long way to making the travel

experience even more pleasurable.

The 30 foot infinity edge pool, lounge chairs, gazebo and tropical landscaped gardens is available for everyone.

The home is available for its guests exclusively, we will be there to greet you show you all around and let you know all the inns and out of Barbados and then let you settle in to experience Barbados on your own , we will always be close by if there is anything you require.

Ancient grove is perfectly located on the west coast of Barbados within a 8 minute drive of some of the worlds best beaches, restaurants and shopping. Located in a safe and unique setting that overlooks a deep canyon guests are immersed in a lush environment that allows the opportunity to see families of monkeys playing in the treetops below.

This home also has a studio apartment on the ground floor, with beautiful little deck over looking the view. If requested this apartment can also be included in the rental. There is also a sweet little wooden cabin 'In the Trees' as we call it, which can accommodate 2 and has its own bathroom.

It's really advisable to hire a car, Barbados is a very safe and diverse island with many places to see and explore.

About Brian Newsam

Hi, 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 The Rock

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 is cool and breezy. The outdoor living is truly special and allows for much of your time to be spent outside enjoying the beautiful view in total comfort.
