Property description

Coco House.

Coco House is a beautiful house in a great location. We bought the house two years ago after visiting friends in Barbados for the last ten years and renting various houses in St James. We love the house – it’s a great space for entertaining or just chilling out. There are two large bedrooms (with en suite marble bathrooms - a shower and bath in the main bathroom, a walk in marble floored shower ensuite to the second bedroom) with French doors that both lead onto the terrace and the good sized plunge pool and private garden (see pics), and a great sized cottage in the garden that has a double bed, marble bathroom (with shower) and kitchenette (fridge, kettle ).

The house can be rented without the cottage, for 4 people. All linen is European and the furniture is a mix of Asian, dark wood and white furnishings.

Architecturally, it’s a lovely house. The high vaulted ceilings, plantation shutters and use of local coral stone and marble make it aesthetically a real pleasure to be in and to look at. The wide balcony juts out and looks out over a 180 degree view of the Caribbean Sea and sky – and because you’re up, not directly on the beach, you really get an incredible panoramic view of the ocean and stunning sunsets (see reviews). We're really fortunate having this uninterrupted view and it's one of the reasons we chose this particular house, within the Sugar Hill and Westmoreland Estates.

The beach plus watersports is a two minute drive down the hill, or if you feel more energetic a fifteen minute walk. I'd almost go as far to say it's a must to rent a car in Barbados as the pubic transport system isn't as direct as it could be and there are a huge variety of things to do and see all over the island, they aren't in one localised place. There is never a problem parking, it's all very relaxed.

Also, being on the Sugar Hill estate, means you have all the advantages of a hotel, without actually being in one. Sugar Hill is a 50 acre private estate with security, which only really gets press when one of its higher profile owners is in town, apart from that it doesn’t self promote and it’s a very laid back place, with wonderful land and gardens. The gardeners keep if looking beautiful (lots of frangipani, coconut tress – the gardeners will happily cut some off for you to have fresh coconut milk for your breakfast) security staff and gatemen mean if you have children you will really feel at ease letting them wander off to their tennis or swimming lessons by themselves. The staff are incredibly friendly – the ladies at reception/concierge at the club house (again, a beautiful, large plantation style house made out of coral, marble and deep mahogany floors) will happily arrange your holiday for you, whether it’s a question of booking restaurants, golf, turtle watching boat trips, riding, surfing, sailing lessons or zip wiring over the tree tops. They can put you in contact with anyone you need, so you don’t have to feel like you have to sort things out for yourself. There are two gorgeous pools - one is the waterfall pool, which is a two minute walk from the house. The other is the clubhouse pool , an infinity pool, which has a stunning view of the West coast. Next to the pool is the acclaimed restaurant Spagos – another huge plus to Sugar Hill, partnered with the Spagos in first street. If you’re too tired to cook, either Margaret (the housekeeper who comes two/ three times a week) can cook you up something, or you can call Spagos and they can sort out a takeaway for you,or if you wish we can organise a cook for you. There is nothing nicer, than after a game of tennis or yoga sitting out at the bar at Sugar Hill, having a Gin and Tonic and watching the sunset. There are four floodlit championship tennis courts in the grounds, a fully equipped gym, yoga and pilates classes at the clubhouse.

Sugar Hill is close to the hustle of Holetown (5 mins drive) and the boho chic of Speightstown (10 mins drive). Holetown, apart from all the normal amenities you need, has the celeb hangout Second Street where you can party the night away and the new, fab Limegrove cinema and lifestyle mall for glitzy, duty-free shopping, cafes, spas and v good restaurants and the cool Lime cocktail bar which is buzzing on a Friday night. Speightstown has small, tucked away restaurants where you can watch classic black and white movies on the beach and enjoy a quiet more laid back evening, the Orange Street Grocer is a great addition to Barbados' restaurants. Fish markets are close by at Paynes Bay and Speightstown.

If you feel like some pampering and visiting a bit of Barbados old glamour, the grande dame, The Sandy Lane is a five to ten minute drive away. The Spa at the Sandy Lane is considered the best on the island (I've been there and it is amazing) and the golf course is one of the best (Sugar Hill can arrange for you to play there, Westmoreland or Apes Hill where there is an golfing dues arrangement with Sugar Hill ). The Cliff and the polo fields are also all close by.

If you feel like visiting the other coasts, it’s a easy trip to the wilder, Atlantic side (you go over the highlands from Sugar Hill), it takes about fourty minutes to the surfer’s paradise of Bathseba. Boogie boarding at The Crane is again, down the Highway, about 40 mins away. FYI all beaches are public in Barbados.

I hope that gives you a flavour of it. There are a huge variety of things to do and places to visit, whether you’re a couple or family. Any questions do email me.

P.S There is a house manager (Carroll) and a housekeeper (Margaret) who can arrange groceries for you before your arrival - they are both great at making your stay as relaxing as possible. The housekeeper, Margaret, cooks and cleans and come two/three days a week. Or if your prefer, we can organise a cook if you would like for the duration of your visit. I also have a babysitter who I use that I can highly recommend.
