Inspired by New York lofts, close to the beach, a private pool, 3,400 sq feet of space over three floors, 12 ft high ceilings, huge rooms, 3 big bedrooms, top-end finish and plenty of natural light, Hillside Villa is a unique Caribbean environment.
The scale of this dream home is both large and luxurious. It incorporates, for instance, a plunge pool leading into the living area. The finest finishes and the quiet setting ensure that life here appeals to those interested in living well. The three bedrooms are air conditioned, the main living area is not, and a maid visits the property three half days a week.
While the Villa is quiet and offers expansive living space it is also on the doorstep of Barbados' oldest settlement (Holetown in St James) - the site where the English first came ashore in 1627. Today Holetown is a heritage site and a compact but busy hub - the heart of the island's dynamic West Coast. The owners wanted a home that was large enough that they could spend a day kicking back without in anyway feeling claustrophobic, but also wanted to be able to walk to some of the best beaches, bars, restaurants, shops and amenities that Barbados can offer.
The dramatic effect the house produces in terms of space and light includes open staircases and living on three levels. It's for this reason that we don't rent out to those with young children or those who are infirm or might have difficulty with the open plan nature of the villa. The photographs should help you decide whether this sort of modern open environment is for you.
That's what the Villa offers, uncomplicated easy living. You will therefore find the Villa is within easy reach of spectacular white sand beaches, golf courses, polo fields, world-class hotels, restaurants and shops of the Platinum Coast. And to top it the entire Villa is a two minute walk away from the wider Limegrove development, a Life Style Centre at the top end of Barbados's tourist offer in terms of shopping, cinemas, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The beaches, Limegrove, everything that Holetown has to offer is all just five minutes walk away.
You have access to the whole house. The host won't be there while you are.
Общение с гостями
There is a Villa Manager on the island and a cleaner. Issues can be resolved as they arise. And you will have email and phone contact with the hosts if required.
The house, on three floors and with open staircases, is not suitable for young children, those with mobility issues or those who are nervous about the open staircases.
Our home when we are on the island, we ask you to respect it as you would care for your own home. This is not the place to book if you are looking for a place to party, it is if you just want to relax.

Born in Barbados - and with extended family on the island - Mandy was educated in both Barbados and UK and has since lived in the US, India and Pakistan. She has her own textile business, is a fitness instructor and her passion is art. For the moment Mandy's immediate family live in the UK but Hillside Villa is their home whenever they are on the island - and they ask guests to respect it as a home - but it's available for rent when the family are out of the island. If you do book the hosts are on hand - via email - to give lots of top tips on how to best enjoy your holiday, they know the island extremely well, and there is a Villa manager available on the island to sort out immediate concerns or issues. While this Villa is new to AirBnB the hosts are not new to offering their accommodation. Their property in Cornwall (UK) used to regularly be in the top three in that county, and this particular property - Hillside Villas - has great reviews through TripAdvisor.
