Gregg Farm house description

The Crag is a Stunning Jungle Hideaway, built on a coralstone outcrop and set on top of the island amid tropical flora and fauna. This unique house offers total privacy, yet is within easy reach of the shopping, restaurants and beaches of the Platinum Coast. Cooled by breezes night and day. Relax in the hammock and listen to the jungle: treefrogs and cicadas sing in the evenings. The Crag is a world apart from the busy traffic and heat of the west coast. Morning and evening green monkeys visit to feed in the breadfruit and plum trees, easily observed from the treetop balcony and verandah. Despite the searing heat of Barbados you will be totally comfortable in this breezy open plan house, equipped with wooden louvres and ceiling fans.
Centrally located The Crag is an ideal base from which to explore the whole island, it is less than 10 minutes from Holetown and both coasts. All beaches have open public access in Barbados, from the pink sand and tumbling surf of the Crane to the 'exclusive' Sandy Lane, and there are lots of beaches to discover. The Crag was rebuilt in 1997 in traditional Bajan style with an shaded outdoor terrace and dining area among the tropical treetops. Dramatic views both into the colourful garden around and below but also southward and westward to the Caribbean Sea.
Two double suites with ensuite bathrooms on the upper floor open onto the edge-to-edge balcony with views to the sea, while a third twin bedded room on the ground floor has its own bathroom next door. Additional accomodation can be made available in a large room under the verandah. It has twin beds and windows onto the jungle, suitable for teenagers.

                          About the owner: The owners live in UK, but have had a house in Barbados for 25 years

                          Why the Owner Chose Gregg Farm:
                          We have known and loved Barbados for many years. The Crag provides a peaceful alternative to the busy beachfronts. We have total privacy yet are not far from all attractions. A great place to cool off after a day on the beach.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Not overlooked, cool and breezy, abundant wildlife. Life is very chilled. Stunning views over the new Apes Hill Golf Course.
