About Katie Shellard
Hi, I am Katie. Welcome to 180 Biflora Row, Sunset Crest. This villa was purchased in 2012 and has been carefully renovated. Modernising this lovely villa was quite a task, but I hope you will agree this is now a very comfortable holiday home. The villa was built in the 1960s and we wanted to keep the traditional charm of the villa but add some modern touches, such as the pale ceramic floor tiles and useful dishwasher, All the linen and towels have been upgraded to cool clean cotton and crockery and cutlery are all new with a generous supply of wine and cocktail glasses. We hope that you will find this villa a warm and welcoming holiday home. We have high standards, keeping the villa clean and tidy. We expect our guests to do the same and respect the villa. The villa is beautifully cared for by our lovely housekeeper and guests will find crisp cotton sheets and towels on arrival plus beach towels for use by the pool or beach. If you are looking for a smart, comfortable, Non-smoking, family villa, we would be pleased to welcome you.

Why Katie Shellard chose Sunset Crest
Sun, sun, sun! There are few places in the world you can go during the winter and guarantee it will be sunny and warm. And this is one. If you're looking for an escape from the gloom and rain in the UK or perhaps Canada, look no further. Even when it does rain in Barabados it is always warm.
What makes this Villa unique
This is one of the few properties in Sunset Crest that has a private pool. If you'd like to take a dip at 6:00 a.m or midnight, the pool is only a few steps away. No need to share with the neighbours! We have a very friendly and knowledgeable property manager - Rachel. She will meet you at the villa and show you round. She is happy to advise on anything you may need during your holiday, such as groceries, baby sitting, restaurants. A membership card for the Sunset Crest beach club is provided and will also get discount at several local stores and cafes. As we spend several weeks every year in the villa ourselves, we do try to ensure that there is everything you need for a really enjoyable vacation. Holetown is the centre of the glitzy West coast and staying at Biflora, you are minutes away from all the amenities.This villa is within walking distance of the beach, supermarket, restaurants and bars. If you don't want to hire a car for your stay, you have everything you need a short stroll away. Taxis and buses are easy to get if you are sightseeing or going to the airport.

The proximity of the Ocean and the Beach Club was enhanced by a great private pool. Magic!
The house and its very pretty garden provide a comfortable, well-composed home which is difficult to leave at the end of a perfect Caribbean holiday. The property Is perfectly located for access to great natural features as well as the excellent Beach Club facilities.
The weather and the Bajan way of life complete an outstanding vacation experience.
We had a wonderful time at Biflora Row. The property was spacious and comfortable and fitted out with everything we needed and more besides. The pool was lovely for a morning dip or a quick swim at the end of a long day. The gardens were lovely and we were visited by monkeys and hummingbirds. The Beach club was perfect for us with small children and just a short walk away, as were a good selection of restaurants, bars and a huge, well stocked, if surprisingly pricy supermarket.
Katie was really helpful in advance with advice and guidance and even sorting out a babysitter so the grown ups could have one night at the Cliff (a highlight). We were well looked after by Rachel and our housekeeper Shirlene. We loved travelling on the buses with the loud reggae music and visited several beautiful beaches within walking distance. We took advantage of horse riding and watersports on Holetown beach and visited Oistins twice for the Friday Night Fish Fry.
Having visited this area before I knew what to expect, but my expectations were definitely exceeded for the most part. The few downsides - cost of living seems very expensive, even by UK standards, from the last time I visited, the wifi wasn't working at the Villa (we could connect to the router but not to the outside world, so I'm sure it'll be sorted for future visitors) but actually it was great to get away from the world for two weeks and kept the kids off their kindles and phones and we could get wifi at the Beach Club for checking emails etc. and the usual tropical insects, were minor issues in what was a great holiday.
This is a lovely villa and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a holiday home on the west Coast of Barbados.
This Villa was wonderful even better that what I expected spotless,very well equipped with every thing ,pool a blessing as very hot ,Staff very friendly and Close to all amenities
Well worth a return visit
Thank you 😎�💜�😎�😎�😎�😎�
Perfect house and location!
We just spent a week in this great house- 4 adults (parents and kids ages 18 & 21). It is in a quiet, very safe neighborhood in Sunset Crest. Every night, we headed down to the beach club & waterfront for the amazing sunsets after a busy day of exploring all the beaches on the island. We're within walking distance to great restaurants and fun nightlife in Holetown. We were centrally located to everything. Our week was very unusual with a front that brought in incredible waves. Our son surfed in the beautiful Caribbean waters and was living the dream! We snorkeled in Brandon's bay and sweet loggerhead turtle swam with us! Unbelievable! We're already hoping we can make another trip and stay in this same house! Highly recommend!!!
So glad you had a great time and thank you for your glowing review. The villa is in a great location for exploring the island or just relaxing and enjoying the local beaches, shops and restaurants. Sunset Crest has an amazing village atmosphere and we love the quiet, homely feel. We look forward to welcoming your family back very soon!
This house was absolutely perfect for us.
This house was wonderful. There was more than enough space for the five of us and the layout was great. The outside dining area was perfect as was the pool area and garden. The kitchen was also very well equipped. The location was also very convenient for Holetown and the local beaches. We used the local buses to get around if we wanted to travel further afield. We would highly recommend this property.
we would stay there again!
We were impressed from arrival to departure. The villa met all expectations. Arrangements for our needs were met down to the last detail. The arrival package (tea/coffee/etc) were much appreciated. We were late arriving and it gave us the lift to get started.
Thanks to all involved!!
If you are planning a beach or golf holiday in Barbados, 180 Biflora is ideal; only 5 minutes from the gorgeous West Coast sandy beach of Holetown. The villa is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the peaceful residential area of Sunset Crest on the Platinum west coast of Barbados. It’s a quiet location with easy access to some of the best restaurants, bars and beach all within a 5 minute walk.
You have the added benefit of a private pool at the villa and use of the Beach Club pool and facilities at the Holetown beach. You can sun bathe all day long on the villa’s pool deck or sit in the shade of the patio, read and watch the bird-life. You’ll find in Barbados there is never a rush to do anything.
The villa is maintained to a very high standard which we expect our guests to respect. We value our maid highly and she will ensure the villa is spotless for you. All the louvred windows can be opened in the day to allow the east to west breeze to cool the house and give that outdoors/indoors feel to the place.
Sunset Crest is a lovely leafy mature residential neighbourhood scattered with interesting tropical trees, after which the roads are named. A tropical garden surrounds the villa with mature mango, palms, and almond trees for shade. Humming birds are regular visitors to the garden.
It is an easy stroll to Holetown, where you can find a supermarket, lots of different restaurants and cafes, boutiques, deli, Cave Shepherd department store and duty free, banks, post office and Lime Grove cinemas. First street offers live night-time entertainment on Friday.
For sight-seeing further afield there is a taxi rank in Sunset Crest, or the local buses run every few minutes to Bridgetown and elsewhere. Bus stops are within a short stroll. Car hire can be arranged.
We have a Welcome Pack at the villa full of ideas for trips around the island, useful contacts for all sorts of activities and a list of local restaurants and menus is included.
