We have a lovely pool area also which is private i.e. for the use of guests only. It is clean and sparkling and a welcome escape from the beach or the Beach House Pool,
The property at Plumbago Avenue, Sunset Crest, St. James is located in a most sought after area of the West Coast of Barbados. and we have the added attraction of our own private pool and yet we are within a five mnute walk to the Beach, to the Beach House where all guests are automatically Members and free to use the facilities there.
My property is maintained to a high standard and we are constantly upgrading - it is clean, fresh and welcoming - spotless. The whole property is fully screened against insects!
The beaches of the West Coast are within minutes walk and the area abounds with activities available - including two world class golf courses, tennis courts, horse riding, every water sport imaginable and lots of shops, restaurants and bars.
We are in a quiet location, without traffic noise - and a parkland area next door to the property gives access to all the above activities without having to run the gauntlet of the traffic - of which, of late, there is a lot in Barbados.
You can relax by the pool and do nothing....its up to you.
We also have a private Beach Club with its own pool and access to the beach which you can also use if you want to be right by the beach - and you can use this as a base for a day walking the beaches either to the North or the South of the area.....there are bathroom facilities here.....and the Beach House right next door has a beautiful Restaurant and Bar. There is now a beach bar also. overlooking the sea where cocktails can be enjoyed called 'Drift'...check it out - you will be welcome
Plumbago : The two apartments and the Villa (two bedrooms, two bathrooms)are available for rent either seperately or together - the pool is solely for the use of whoever is living on the property.
There is a lovely balcony on both apartments and extra outside patio with access from the lower apartment..... fully equipped kitchens and very large bathrooms cum dressing rooms. They are bright and airy and very comfortable. The lower apartment has an additional patio which leads from the apartment to the back garden.
The Villa has two outside areas belonging to it. The property faces West but the cooling winds that come from the East keep these two places cool as there are windows/doors which allow the winds to pass through. The apartments were built to null and void the need for Air Conditioning - the windows are louvre windows and the doors also - so built to maximise the Trade Winds that blow.
There is a pool deck also that is for the sole use of the residents of the apartments and Villa.
General: Sunset Crest has grown dramatically in the last twenty years and is now a major hub on the Island. We have everything here and there is very rarely the need for a Car as the local bus service is so good - running from early morning to late at night to most popular places on the island. . There is a lively atmosphere about the area with lots of eating places and local bars where the toursts and locals meet in very friendly atmospheres.
The beaches are all close by and one can walk both North and South from or own Beach Club and one amazing beach follows the other. The swimming is to die for with most beaches on this Coast havng good shade from the trees that line the Coast.
Barbados offers a variety of things to do or you can do nothing, according to your mood..

The pool is central to this property and is for the exclusive use of guests and we have found that there is no problem with the sharing by our guests, as they get to know each other and it is a favourite spot for hanging out, having a chat or a sundowner - or if you dont want to be sociable, you have your own private patio or the back garden . The pool is about twenty eight feet long and l5 foot wide at its widest point - it is amoeba shaped with a handrail and also a ladder. The deep end is 5 foot six inches deep and the shallow end 3 foot deep. It is well maintained and always sparklingly clean - when the sun is out the finish of diamond brite which has been used on the pool makes it look like the sea when the sun is out and it is a cloudless sky....very inviting.
THERE IS LOTS OF SPACE FOR SITTING OUT , READING, LOUNGING OR HAVING THAT HARD WORKED FOR COCKTAIL !
