Carter house description

Sitting on over ten acres of lush farm land lies the house at Serendipity over looks the entire farm land with a panoramic view of the rugged Atlantic coast line immersed with rolling waves and whitewash. With views of Bathsheba, North Point, East Point and Hackleton’s Cliff. Cool breezes, picturesque sun rises and sunsets are a few natural benefits to this property.
In between Martins Bay, which is famous for its fresh fish, and Bathsheba, home of International surfing competitions, there are iconic rum shops and good island food.
The property is a two story house with the upper floor being the accommodation. Styled and designed to give a natural and authentic experience. With varnished floors, colourful artwork and authentic island furniture and fittings. You can awe at the views whilst sitting on a sun lounger on the full wrap around balcony.
With the house located on a farm there are opportunities for several exclusive hikes around the property where you can see produce being grown. Also Hackleton’s cliff which is directly behind, provides an amazing hike to the top where you can be at one of the island's highest points over looking the property and the sea. The gardens around the house have been beautifully landscaped with a large lawn, fruit and coconut trees seemingly everywhere. There are two picnic tables, a bar, and a barbecue available for use.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I have three beautiful children and a long Barbadian ancestry. We frequently visited the island through the years of the children's early childhood and enjoyed every minute of it. We never wanted leave! In 2004 we returned again, but for my father's funeral and simply didn't have the heart to leave. The country, the people, Barbados held so many cherished memories; it was our home away from home. So, I made the decision to make this beautiful island our new permanent home. The transition for the entire family was so smooth, I knew I had made the right decision. Sometimes, a little sea, sun and sand is all you are missing in your life. And this is what we found in Barbados.

Why the Owner Chose Carter:
I have a love of the open air; without clutter and concrete, and as far away from pollution as possible. Living in the city unfortunately, made this quite hard, so I went seeking a place to get away; to enjoy nature to its full potential. I searched for months on end for my ideal getaway, but came up empty handed. One day, I was driving my kids to the beach down the east coast and took a wrong turn somewhere along the way. We wound up on the top of a hill that overlooked all the coast. It was absolutely breath taking. We got out of the car and just took in the view for several minutes completely astonished at the discovery we had made. It was everything I hoped for and was looking for in a weekend getaway location. It sat on 10 acres of land, it had an exquisite view, and it was so lush and beautifully green. I knew this was the one. And so I named it Serendipity- the occurrence and development of great things by chance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Secluded Location- Serendipity Bay offers you all the privacy and security you need. And what’s more is that our location gives you the opportunity to be away from the horror of excessive traffic and noise pollution. Distance to City- The distance from our country house to our heart-warming, friendly neighbouring and historical city are quite close. In addition to having your own personal driver or our incredible car rental services, our island’s transport system is quite efficient, therefore if you’re traveling by bus, bus stops to and from the city are easy to find and so are our bus stations. So when you’re either touring or shopping, you will be sure to get there, smoothly quickly. Breath Taking Views- Where ever you turn, there’s always a marvelous view to behold. You are able to view the North, South, East and West from our lovely location.
