Overview

About the property

3 minute walk to the beach

Orion's View is an amazing 5 bedroom villa located on the edge of a cliff with a spectacular ocean view in the untouched east coast parish of St.Philip, a small secluded beach is just a few hundred yards away. Ground floor consists of full bathroom, study, spacious living area to seat 7, dining area to seat 8 adjoining a modern kitchen with breakfast bar to seat 4. Behind the kitchen is a laundry area with washer/dryer & bathroom. Double glass doors lead to an outdoor communal balcony & patio. The patio overlooks an infinity pool, large garden and a fantastic ocean view. The master bedroom is also on the ground floor with an En Suite & Jacuzzi. Both the master and bath do have newly added air conditioning. The 1st floor consists of a large living area leading out to a larger than average outdoor balcony and 4 further bedrooms. There are 5 en suite bedrooms in all, 4 of which have balcony’s, 3 of which are sea view. All rooms have ceiling fans installed & because the sea breeze keeps the temperature cool no air conditioning is required.

The villa is under new ownership. I simply fell in love with the villa and the view the first time I looked at it and was lucky enough to purchase it. We are in the process of making many improvements to the villa including improved internet and television viewing. There is also free calling to North America as well.

About Kevin Graham

Hello we are new owners to the property. We purchased the villa for our own family use and have been working to improve it ever since. We are only able to use the villa a couple times per year but we decided to continue sharing it,

Kevin Graham purchased this villa in 2012

Why Kevin Graham chose St. Philip

Barbados is one of the nicest islands in the world. The Villa is very large and has one of the nicest views anybody could ever ask for. It's located in a quaint and quiet little area removed from the hustle and bustle. The villa is located about a 10 minute drive from the new Bushy Park Racing Circuit.

What makes this villa unique

The property always seems to have a nice breeze. The view is of the south east coast and always has big beautiful surf. The villa 5 verandahs that overlook the ocean. Each bedroom has it's own full bathroom. Its a wonderful area to just go for a walk to the lighthouse or a hike along the coast.Some of the nicest beaches in the Carribean are very close by as well.

Not quite what we thought but still fantastic

  • 5 of 5

A couple things worth noting about this home that caught us a little off guard were the lack of a 3 minute walk to the beach and the general lack of air conditioning. The A/C was definitely a mistake on us by not seeing the more detailed description explaining it was only in the master suite. As others have said, however, much of the house has more than sufficient breeze for comfort all day. There were two rooms upstairs that had no breeze and we moved the mattresses into the master - everyone in our 8 person party ended up happy.

The "beach" that is a 3 minute walk is more of a rocky cove with a borderline treacherous walk to reach. We went once during our week long stay and never went back.

On to the fantastic. This house is HUGE with a private balcony for every room, and the most gorgeous views of any tropical destination we've visited. The pool is not huge, but all 8 of us were able to play in it together. Bert, the groundskeeper, is fantastic. He was more than happy to give us advice on things to see, took fantastic care of the property, and was generally an amazing person. A month later and I still speak with him!

Jackie across the street is wonderful. You must have her prepare at least one meal for you. I'd recommend a traditional Bajan meal and let her handle the menu. She accommodated members of our party with Celiac as well as a vegetarian. I can't say enough good about the meal, and the evening conversations we had at Jackie's!

Though there really isn't a beach within walking distance, Bottom Bay is a 5 minute drive at most. It is the absolute definition of paradise. At the top (there are stairs carved into the cliff down to the actual beach) were gentlemen selling fresh coconuts they climbed palms to retrieve. They open the coconut and you can choose to drink it plain, flavored, or flavored with rum. There is a "cave" on the beach that's huge and a reprieve from the hot midday sun, the water is perfectly turquoise, and the waves aren't overpowering if you have little ones. Standing in the perfect white sand, sipping fresh coconut, and absorbing the view was overwhelming. Apparently it's not a super well known beach - virtually private!

The island is small so anything can be seen easily. We visited Animal Cave, Harrison's Cave, and toured a rum distillery. The week went by too fast and nobody wanted to leave. I'd highly recommend the house and destination. Worth note - Bajan people are the most friendly folks in the world we've ever met!

Superb venue in a marvellous unspoilt area of Barbados

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic house with great views. Listening to the waves breaking on the beach from our bedroom balcony during the night. A perfect stay

Walk from here to East Point grill for great music, food and of course a few Rum Punch . Across the street to Jackie's bar for evening cocktails with the locals.

The house is in need of some updating now but nothing particularly to spoil our holiday. Bert always available for any help when needed .

Crane beach nearby one of our favourites.

Bathsheba very special and food at the Round House overlooking the beach was excellent.

We will return

Awesome Property

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 9 people. This villa is spacious and quiet. The ocean views are spectacular and each bedroom has its own semi private deck. The locals are incredibly polite and welcoming. We highly recommend this property and if we return, we would certainly rent Orien's View again.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying I don't normally offer feedback for any site but I felt the need to acknowledge how great this property really is. I have worked in the hospitality industry my entire life and have been fortunate to travel to several places all round the world but this is one of the most picturesque places I have ever seen. As nice as the pictures are in the listing, they do not do the views justice.

The property is clean, quiet and most importantly, safe. The house is huge and is very comfortable whether you have a large or small group. Jackie across the street offers great meals at very reasonable prices.

I think the best part about this property for our group was the privacy. Having the pool to use while overlooking the ocean was priceless. Everything is so close on the island that you can pretty much get anywhere on the island within a 45 minute drive.

Finally, thank you to Kevin and Bert for taking care of us. You will not find nicer people to deal with. There are many options when travelling but we will return to Orion's View again.

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people staying at this house in January of 2016. It was a great house with everything you need. The kitchen was fully equipped and even had satellite tv. We were fortunate enough to stay in the master suite, which was air conditioned. The master suite is huge with a massive bathroom. My only suggestion would be to have air conditioning

throughout the house. There are great breezes, however it is a bit stuffy.

The house is on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean and the view are awesome.

The other rooms are also very comfortable with bathrooms attached to each room. The area is very quiet and friendly.

Jackie's Bar across the road is the absolute best for food. We ordered from her three times. The food is so delicious, so easy and convenient and so tasty. The prices are extremely affordable. I would definitely recommend this property.

Bert was also very accommodating and visited if there was a problem (the internet wasn't working one day).

The owner, Kevin, also called while we were here to ensure everything was to our liking.

We travelled about 40 minutes each day to "The Gap" and Dover Beach to surf. It is a bit farther out, but enjoyed the peace and quiet.

I would highly recommend this house for couples or families that enjoy the quiet lifestyle.

WORTH THE VIEW

  • 4 of 5

Our recent stay in this spacious home was just what we needed to relax and enjoy the beautiful Island of Barbados. The rooms had spectacular views and the gentle ocean breeze kept us relaxed and comfortable. Each room was conveniently located for maximum privacy and included its own full bath. We were grateful for the personal attention given us right from the start. We were met at the Airport by the Home’s Caretaker Bert. Anything we needed, he made sure we received. Spending a week in a new home in a foreign country has its challenges and sometimes our expectations are not quite what we imagined. However, the first night we arrived, we were warmly treated with a home (local) cooked meal by Jackie from the Grill across the street. She was available to cook on short notice and provided the meals at a reasonable price. The Owner was available for any questions that came up and even allowed us to use his phone to call the U.S.

There were some slight misconceptions with the Property. The short walk to the Beach below was longer than expected and the Beach itself was really not appropriate for swimming or sun bathing. However, the Beach at Bottom Bay and the Crane Beach, both close by, were worth visiting. The Home could use some minor repairs with the windows but for the most part was clean and tidy for our comfort.

Overall, the stay was enjoyable and worth the rental value. Any adjustments or concerns were warmly welcomed by the Owner which made us feel that our views were important and would lead to possible changes that would make future visitors happier and more satisfied.
