About the Property

Villa and 2 Apartments

REVIEWS ON MAIN LISTING PERTAIN TO ALL THREE UNITS ...The apartments were built as an addition to the original Villa - in 1998/99 and have been successfully rented since then.
When in Barbados, as of late , I stay in the lower apartment but when away, put it up for rental, hence it is not always available.
General info of property.....
You couldnt be much closer to the beach on West Coast - a fantastic property with pool - everything for your holiday in Barbados. High standard,of furnishings, fittings, and everything else needed for comfort plus beautiful tropical 'jungle' garden.. We offer free wireless internet ,cable TV, . The garden is private space with pool and deck as main feature.Well located in a quiet cul de sac and a few minutes walk to beach.....the pictures on the listings do not do the property justice!!

Self Catering at its best -

The villa has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, two outside galleries overlooking the pool deck.

They are more than Studios - more like Hotel Suites - as they are very large and airy - unfortunately this cannot be portrayed in the pictures on this listing.
From the upper apartment you can view the Sunset , looking over the trees to the sea.
from the lower one you have a front garden and bak garden are not on this listing but can be emailed on enquiry.
Both apartments have full kitchens and large bathrooms cum dressing rooms.
The living space is very spacious in the upper apartment with dining area and longing area with balcony off and four doors opening up, bringing the outside in.
The lower apartment is the same but a little smaller as it has the advantageous of a brilliant outside deck as well as front one.
Both apartments are suitable for long space is not a problem.

We have a good sized pool, amoeba shaped, (so not boring!!) and 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. not exactly beach front, but within a five mnute walk to the Beach, to OUR COMMUNITY beach club where all guests are automatically Members and free to use the facilities there. Events are held regularly here during the months of winter - i.e. sunset drinks and food, barbecues, New Years eve celebrations, Valentines night party - and all at budget prices....with live music - its a great extra addition to your holiday.

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.

Plumbago : The one apartment 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 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 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.

Barbados offers a variety of things to do or you can do nothing, according to your mood..

Additional information about rental rates:

THE RATES ABOVE ARE PER STUDIO APARTMENT WHICH ACCOMMODATE TWO PEOPLE. WE ARE ALWAYS WILLING TO DISCUSS RATES . They are a guide only and may change SPECIAL OFFER. A 25% deposit is required to secure a booking.and is non refundable - so we strongly advise the taking out of an Insurance to cover any unforseen issue that might arise. Full payment should be made four /six weeks prior to arrival or as arranged with Diane. The air conditioning is hardly necessary as we supply ceiling and floor fans. Please check charges with Diane. We do not require a security deposit - if anything is broken/damaged this can be sorted out on site. We 'trust' our guests. Our guests become our friends and we treat them so well, they come back again and again and we look forward to making many more new friends !! There is no charge for full wi- fi connection. Also we have cable TV - which is the basic package including BBC World, CNN, etc , Fox News, PBS, CBC , NBC, TNT, A&E, BBC Ame
We welcome couples staying in the two apartments and a discount can be arranged if in the same party We are a quiet property. Plumbago Avenue is generally noise free and certainly no traffic noise - `but so well located and I have to mention again the new Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, recently opened - and A fantastic addition to Holetown.
Sunset Crest, generally, has about 50% of its occupants who live here year round - and the rest are here for shorter times including holiday makers. There is a friendly atmosphere in the area which holiday makers always comment upon.....everyone is made to feel welcome and treated with respect. I think Sunset Crest and the Holetown area are unique in Barbados - nothing else comes near to it in terms of what is on offer here for the discerning traveller..... The Caribbean and Barbados is not Europe (but hotter) but has its own unique feel - it tries to emulate nothing else, but is itself and it is not for the traveller who want the attractions of Florida or the Costas of is simple and just beautiful and many people love it and come back year after year, .....what more can I say ??

Other Amenities

  • 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.

Late special offers for April.

This area is unsurpassable for visitors and all tastes are catered for......

one can walk everywhere. The beach is a few minutes stroll away as are the shops, restauants, bars and ,now , two VIP cinemas.

On Plumbago Avenue we are particularly blessed as we are located at the end of a cul de sac and right next door to lovely parkland. This park gives access to all the amenities of Holetown. It is NOT a playpark for children, so quiet and restful - there is NO NOISE from traffic , which can impact on ones serenity.

Your own DRIVER pick up can be arranged for your arrival and departure.

Buses to all part of the island are frequent.

Our private Beach Club is available for your's right on the beach a mere five minutes walk away. Amenities include : pool, showers, bathrooms, lockers, loungers, tables and chairs and private access to its own beautiful beach. The recently build boardwalk is outside which gives access to north and south of Holetown. Next door to the Club is the Beach House Restaurant and bar, plus the Drift bar, serving cocktails, drinks and specialised food nights.

Beautiful beaches are just a stones throw away from the property as are all the amenities of the area, including golf, tennis, horse riding, diving and every known watersport. There are lots of shops and supermarket, cafes, bars and restaurants of every description which cater for all budgets. In February we have the Holetown Festival

You wll also have use of our private Beach Club which is a few minutes walk away - this gives access to the beach wth lockers for your personal items - so you can stroll up and down the beach unencumbered. There are showers, wash rooms, , restaurant and bar there too - a beautiful setting ...also a new cocktail bar called 'DRIFT' next to the Beach House.
