About Alexandra Austin
I have three beautiful children and a long Barbadian ancestry. We frequently visited the island through the years of the children's early childhood and enjoyed every minute of it. We never wanted leave!
In 2004 we returned again, but for my father's funeral and simply didn't have the heart to leave. The country, the people, Barbados held so many cherished memories; it was our home away from home. So, I made the decision to make this beautiful island our new permanent home.
The transition for the entire family was so smooth, I knew I had made the right decision. Sometimes, a little sea, sun and sand is all you are missing in your life. And this is what we found in Barbados.
Alexandra Austin purchased this house in 2006
Why Alexandra Austin chose St. John
I have a love of the open air; without clutter and concrete, and as far away from pollution as possible. Living in the city unfortunately, made this quite hard, so I went seeking a place to get away; to enjoy nature to its full potential. I searched for months on end for my ideal getaway, but came up empty handed.
One day, I was driving my kids to the beach down the east coast and took a wrong turn somewhere along the way. We wound up on the top of a hill that overlooked all the coast. It was absolutely breath taking. We got out of the car and just took in the view for several minutes completely astonished at the discovery we had made. It was everything I hoped for and was looking for in a weekend getaway location.
It sat on 10 acres of land, it had an exquisite view, and it was so lush and beautifully green. I knew this was the one.
And so I named it Serendipity- the occurrence and development of great things by chance.

Guestbook comments from the owner
An amazing stay at an amazing location. For me and my wife it was the perfect getaway from our regular lives. The tranquility and serenity the property has to offer is second to none. The grounds are expansive and kept beautifully with fruit trees all around the 10 acres of luscious gardens. The interior was the perfect cosy size with all modern outfitting's and a wrap around balcony with panoramic views of the east coast of Barbados was awe inspiring. It was the best way we could have seen Barbados!
