Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath sleeps 6 with dual level terraces overlooking pool and sea

A cliff-edge breezy villa facing the Atlantic. House newly constructed in summer 2013 and fully equipped with new appliances and comforts. Quiet and secure residential neighborhood. Dramatic cliff-side views and scenic evening strolls.

There are 3 ensuite bedrooms, all with terraces opening onto the sea. The morning sunrise over the ocean greets you from the balcony and can be appreciated with an early dip in the pool before coffee. Screening the sun by early afternoon, the shaded 2 level terrace overlooks the pool with the ocean just fifty yards beyond.

Two identical spacious master suites are upstairs with ensuite baths, all opening onto the upper terrace facing the ocean. The modern equipped kitchen and granite island seating expands outside as a focal point for conversation and relaxed dining on the tiled terrace.

Fully equipped, the coastal get-away has cable HD TV, local phone and stable wi-fi. The traditional Barbados multi-louvered house design, without glassed windows, provides constant flowing ocean breeze and a cool airy atmosphere. At night and during quiet moments of the day, you can hear the ocean surging against the rocks below.

The immaculately maintained 200 square foot pool faces the cliff with ledge seating for meditating on the deep blue and turquoise horizon. A gas-fired BBQ allows for quick grilling of fresh fish from Oistens market. Less than 15 minutes from the airport, the safe residential neighborhood is quiet in the evenings for relaxing strolls along the escarpment and lanes.

Two beautiful white sandy beaches, including the world-famous Crane resort, are within 10 minutes’ drive north of the house, and more calm Caribbean beaches are plentiful 15-30 minutes south along the coast to Bridgetown. A grocery store and bakery is a short walk from the house, with a quick connection to the main island highway allowing fast access to tourist areas.

Our local key holder can arrange to meet you at the airport and orient you to the property upon your arrival.

About Phillip Miller

On one of our morning walks on a visit to the island in January of 2010 we came upon a surveyor working the cliff edge and asked what he was doing. He told us someone might be interested in buying the land. We asked what if we wanted to purchase the land who would we contact. The next 26 hours included contacting the realtor, making an offer, finding a lawyer to meet us on a Saturday and signing the paperwork for the land as we left for the airport.

Three and one half years later our dream has come to life in this wonderful home by the sea. We hope that you find the peace and relaxation during your stay that we do.

Enjoy the wonderful breeze, sunrises and crashing waves. Please enjoy your stay and treat our home as if it were your dream home.

Steven, Mari, Phillip and Teri

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Phillip,



Thanks for a wonderful stay in Barbados! Your place was awesome.



I have stayed by a small beach in previous visits, but I must say, the pool was a luxury. Especially since we were working outdoors, and the thought of a dip kept us going most of the afternoon.



David was extremely pleasant and helpful, thanks for sending an ex-pat Canadian to meet us!







I was a bit hesitant at renting a place without a/c, but the ocean breeze was just as good, even better I would have to say.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from an amazing week in Barbados! This villa is the perfect choice. I have to say that besides the typical color fading of a house in the sun, the pictures are truly accurate. The view is breathtaking, the pool is perfect during a hot day, and the size of the rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, etc. are all just the right size. There were plenty of beach towels and other appliances to cover your basic needs and more. David, the house manager, was incredibly helpful and friendly. The open air windows and doors were fantastic on the breezy cliffs. The only negative (if you can call it that) is the distance from the main city and popular beaches. If you like to adventure out and drive around to different beaches, you can expect about a minimum 20 minute drive. This however, was no big deal for our group as we enjoyed the scenery and loved the option of beach hopping.

I would recommend this property to anyone and if I ever get the opportunity to travel to Barbados again, I hope to stay here!

Cliff-side Getaway

  • 3 of 5

Sea of Peace Villa is a lovely place right on the cliff. The views from the home are spectacular morning, noon and night. There is nothing but calm, beautiful water to enjoy from every bedroom as well as the patio. A car is essential however to get to the many beautiful beaches in the area. The 82 degree weather was a welcome relief from the freezing temperatures of New England and not having air conditioning was not a problem. A constant breeze meant no bugs!. Perfect!!

The villa is in the flight plan from the airport. The traffic lasts for a short time and doesn't ruin cocktail hour. The home is neat, clean and simple. Showers are great with plenty of hot water. A bedroom on the first floor is easily accessible for anyone with special needs. Although not a gourmet kitchen, we ate two meals a day at the home.

Visit if you can. You won't regret it.

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Peace of Sea Villa delivers exactly what you expect from the photos. It will not disappoint with its truly spectacular views and proximity to the ocean. Highly recommended!!

We spent 19 days there over the festive season. The villa is new, clean and bright. It is decorated beautifully and fully equipped with all amenities. In addition a housekeeper came every week to change the bedding and do general cleaning.

The highlight though is its situation and the indescribably beautiful views. The whole front of the house opens to the sea, so even when you are indoors you feel like you are outside. Sitting on the upstairs balcony early in the morning and late in the afternoon is heavenly.

The area is residential, so mostly quiet. Being the festive season there was some activity in the surrounding homes, but nothing that was noisy or intrusive. It is preferable to have a car if you want to get around, although the bus stop is within walking distance if you prefer.

Some reviews have commented on the noise from departing aeroplanes. For our aviation-mad family this was actually a big plus, and one reason to chose this particular property! My husband and son had flight-radar 24 apps on their devices and spent as much time as possible spotting planes. I would stress that there was no actual disturbance to us. The numbers of flights are few and concentrated at particular times of the day.

Phillip was extremely helpful throughout the booking process, answering questions in advance of our stay, and even calling the villa while we were there to check that we were settling in ok.

He asked his property manager David to pick us up from the airport. Given that we were very tired after 2 days of travelling it was a most welcome gesture. He offered to stop by the grocery store for supplies as well. David was always available for small issues such as light bulbs that needed changing, and he arranged for someone to fix the freezer when it stopped working. He also came intermittently to check and clean the pool during our stay.

We had a fantastic few weeks, felt completely relaxed and rejuvenated by the end, so much so that we are looking for our own piece of paradise just along the road!

My only small suggestion would be that the lovely pool perhaps may need heated in winter. It was manageable for a quick swim but it was not warm enough to be lazing around in the water. The constant sea breezes that are usually so welcome may be just a bit too effective cooling the water!

It's all about tranquility (and fun)!

  • 5 of 5

Being here allowed us to experience peace and inner reflection. Even more beautiful than expected, being in this incredible house in Barbados was a wonder-full experience! The swimming pool and cliffs reach out for you to experience and enjoy. The dual pleasure of falling asleep and waking up to ocean waves was fantastic! The neighborhood offered us an opportunity to be left alone and undisturbed. We loved the setting, the pinks and purples and turquoises around us, and a fully equipped kitchen--although we found many tasty restaurants nearby. We would also recommend walking on as many beaches as possible, talking to locals and dancing at the Friday night fish fry not too far away, and visiting the terrific Earthworks Pottery Store where you get to talk with artists as they create their treasures! The highlight for one of us was spending a day at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve watching animals live in the wild without cages--and join green monkeys, tortoises, antelopes, and many other animals eating lunch together peacefully right in front of us! All four of us totally loved that! Each night, we came home and cooked and talked and played dominoes and swam in the pool and appreciated the moonlight over the ocean. What a vacation! Thanks for sharing your house with us. Heaven!

P.S. The house was even better than advertised--clean, well-maintained, and very comfortable. Loved the artwork, too.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my 6 friends and I have been to Barbados. We went through so many places on homeaway before we came to this one. It was within our budget and the pictures looked beautiful. In all honesty, I was a little reserved because photos can be deceiving but I was absolutely mind blown when we arrived! The photos are exactly what you will see if you book this place. Its in a great area with a breath-taking view. All of the rooms were very clean and there was a nice ocean breeze through the house at all times. The manager Philip was very friendly and helpful; he had Andrea meet us at the airport to give us the keys and show us around the house. She was an absolute doll! She called us every couple of days to make sure we were okay and she recommended us places to eat and hang out. We had such a great experience in Barbados and a big part of it was because of this awesome home we got to stay in! Thanks Philip, Andrea, and David! :)

Perfect Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Barbados and will not be our last. Our first 9 nights were spent at Phillip''s fantastic holiday home. Before the trip Phillip could not have been more helpful, answering all our questions promptly. His house manager, David, met us at the airport and we followed him to the house (you will need a car when staying here). The property was comfortable and well equipped. The upstairs balcony leading off two bedrooms was stunning, providing an incredible view of the Atlantic ocean from your bed. We hardly used the pool as we spent most days at one of a number of beaches (Crane and Miami being the most convenient on this side of the island). The airplane noise was not really an issue as the few flights that leave do so late afternoon, early evening. There is one night time flight, however if it woke us, we got straight back to sleep. Our second week was spent on the more commercial west coast and we were pleased we were able to enjoy two different sides of the Island.
