About the property

Town house in Prospect, St. James, Barbados - Peaceful Central Location, 5 Min Walk To Beach

This development, overlooking a beautifully landscaped waterfall, designed to allow persons using the swimming pool and gazebo area's to enjoy a view of the beautiful Caribbean sea, where jet ski’s, yachts and other pleasure craft may be seen as they pass you by. The property is less than 10 mins drive from the city of Bridgetown and is situated on the luxurious West Coast where many of the famous film stars, entertainment celebrities, prime ministers and presidents reside when they visit the island. Three of the islands premier golf courses; Sandy Lane, Royal West Moreland, the new "Apes Hill" (which is reputed to be the best in the Caribbean) are all close. This development ideally set in the hills of a cul-de-sac is located at Prospect St. James Barbados and consists of seven beautifully designed town houses.

About Bev White

The property is owned by two families, Glyn and Beverley White and Dennis and Denise Brownlow. we met on holiday in St. Lucia 20 years ago and now we are more like family than friends.

Glyn and Beverley live in Cardiff - Wales

Dennis and Denise live in March - Cambridgeshire

Bev White purchased this house in 2005

Why Bev White chose St. James

With so many properties to choose from its always difficult to make a choice, however this property ticks most of the boxes for us.

The deciding factor has to be the outstanding views of the beautiful west coast along with the location; being half way between Hole Town and Bridgetown, and the beach at the bottom of the road is just the icing on the cake.

What makes this house unique

The property is spacious with air conditioning in all rooms and benifits from 3 full bathrooms which is great when there are more people staying.

The views from the balcony off the lounge and the roof top terrace is simply stunning and one of the best on the west coast. There are also sea views from the kitchen window and the two ground floor bedrooms.

There are no other developments like Costa Vista which has a mediterranean feel and look. The property has become a landmark and is clearly visible from the sea or air.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A special thank you to Den, Denise, Glyn & Bev for allowing us to stay another week. The house has amazing views and is perfect for all our needs. After a hectic 2 weeks we just simply relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful island and its people. We ventured all around the island using the yellow reggae buses, "what an experience, fantastic!"

Thank you so much,

Steve & June Count, March, Cambridgeshire, England, UK.



Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your wonderful home, its so nice to feel relaxed and take in the amazing views, they are truly incredible! This sure keeps you fit and you have done this place so well and pretty. Thank you, we hope to return again next year.

The amazing views can not be over stated, they are undoubtedly some of the very best views on the west coast of Barbados. Outside: Roof terrace 550sqft with table and chairs external electrical sockets should you wish to plug in a music appliance, there is also electric lighting as well as bamboo oil lamps. The roof top terrace has a BBQ and it's an amazing, breath taking place to chill and absorb the serenity that it provides. The new swimming pool is awesome! and it's almost like an infinity pool as you just gaze at the beautiful Caribbean sea while you keep cool and relax. Our gardens are landscaped and offer many seasonal tropical flowers and shrubs. The first floor bedrooms both have a balcony with views to the Caribbean sea of the west cost, so does the large balcony off the living area.

Excellent no faults

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a quiet area with lovely views and well equipped would not hesitate in recommending it to anybody but has a steep hill to climb I would advise car hire but you have a bus stop at bottom of hill and you can get anywhere on them. also a well stocked supermarket the pictures do not do it justice.

Excellent Location & Breathtaking Views

  • 3 of 5

We had problems communicating with the owners. The PIN provided for location was wrong , phone contact numbers no answer, taxi , locals could not tell us where the condo was situated.

The condo, met our needs for 4 couples. Needed some repairs . The views, pool, balconies provided a beautiful view of the carribian watching the sailboats and daily visits from the monkeys .Short walk to the market and buses and Fitts Village. Beach a bit rocky safe to swim.Weather beautiful..

The condo has a lot of steps interior to each level and exterior to the pool.

Would have liked a BBQ as advertised since we went to Paynes Market frequently. Rent a car is a must to see Barbados. The housekeeper once there was amazing .

Don't hesitate to book this villa - lovely spacious villa, great location (not if you are elderly or infirm as up a hill and lots of stairs) but great for beach, buses, shops etc. right by a supermarket too. Really helpful friendly owners and house keeper. Would definetly consider booking again.

I would like to say a big THANK YOU Bev & Glyn for giving us the opportunity of staying in Barbados what a place. We were only there 2 days and already new we wanted to come back next year. Just can't say enough about the island. Plenty of things to do and see get a car as you can miss things on the mad bus's. The house has everything you need and want home from home.

Can't wait for next year :-)

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love this island, and the house is just stunning the pictures really don't do it justice! We have stayed here several times and we always thoroughly enjoy it. The roof top terrace offers beautiful views out on to the ocean, as do the views from the pool. The grounds are well kept and there's always friendly monkeys running around which our daughter thinks is great! The people on the island are so friendly and welcoming I cannot praise the place enough :) highly recommended....

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach in in Fitts village and is a mere 6 min walk from Costa Vista. paynes bay is 5 mins by car and provides all the water sports, snorkeling is great and you will get an opportunity to swim with wild ocean turtles.

The best way to view the west coast beaches is by sea, and there are many catamarans that sail out of Bridgetown providing an opportunity to sail up the west coast, snorkle with turtles and explore reefs. We have used many and we highly reccomend using "Cool Runnings"

Travel:

Grantley Adams International airport is a 30 minute drive from Costa Vista.

Distances:

Fitts village is 500 yards away, while Hole Town is a 7 min drive. The capital Bridgetown is also 7 mins by car.

Further Details:

There is a local supermarket at the bottom of the hill called ‘Jordans’ for more choice try the Sunset Crest Plaza in Hole Town. You can buy most things that you can in Europe or in the US. There is a good selection of fresh meat, fruit and vegetables. For fish lovers, the fish market in Bridgetown is highly recommended, don't be shy, venture inside. There is also a large supermarket at ‘Warrens’ approx 3 miles away. In Bridgetown there are more shops and a very good ‘Cave Shepherd’ department store. This company has small outlets at both the Sunset shopping malls. In order to ensure you gain the benefits of tax free shopping which has a massive saving you must carry your white immigration card with you, to be handed over when you pay. All tax free items can be taken with you with the exception of alcohol and tobacco, which must be collected at the airport on your departure. Jewellery can be found in ‘Colombian Emeralds’and ‘Diamonds International’ they are very good value in comparison to UK prices. The local currency is the Barbadian dollar and the exchange rate varies from about $3 to $3.8 to £1 sterling. The US dollar is always $2 Bds to $1 US. There are several banks locally. All banks will change cash and travellers cheques. Cash machines (ATM’S) can be found outside all of the banks and it is very easy to obtain cash at any time of the day. All major credit cards are accepted in shops and restaurants. Local calls from the apartment are free, international calls are barred. The most cost effective way to make international calls is to buy a local pay as you go SIM card for your mobile phone. Don’t forget to ensure that your mobile is not blocked before leaving home. There are lots of places to see and include Welch Man Hall Gully, Andromeda Gardens, The Flower Forest, Harrisons Cave and Tyrol Cots Heritage Village this is the former home of Sir Grantley Adams who was the first Prime Minister of Barbados. Other places to visit are the Animal Flower Cave.
