Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Bottom Bay - Orion's View

3 minute walk to the beach

Orion's View is an amazing 5 bedroom villa located on the edge of a cliff with a spectacular ocean view in the untouched east coast parish of St.Philip, a small secluded beach is just a few hundred yards away. Ground floor consists of full bathroom, study, spacious living area to seat 7, dining area to seat 8 adjoining a modern kitchen with breakfast bar to seat 4. Behind the kitchen is a laundry area with washer/dryer & bathroom. Double glass doors lead to an outdoor communal balcony & patio. The patio overlooks an infinity pool, large garden and a fantastic ocean view. The master bedroom is also on the ground floor with an En Suite & Jacuzzi. The 1st floor consists of a large living area leading out to a larger than average outdoor balcony and 4 further bedrooms. There are 5 en suite bedrooms in all, 4 of which have balcony’s, 3 of which are sea view. All rooms have ceiling fans installed & because the sea breeze keeps the temperature cool no air conditioning is required.

The villa is under new ownership. I simply fell in love with the villa and the view the first time I looked at it and was lucky enough to purchase it. We are in the process of making many improvements to the villa including improved internet and television viewing. There is also free calling to North America as well.

About Kevin Graham

Hello we are new owners to the property. We purchased the villa for our own family use and have been working to improve it ever since. We are only able to use the villa a couple times per year but we decided to continue sharing it,

Kevin Graham purchased this villa in 2012

Why Kevin Graham chose Bottom Bay

Barbados is one of the nicest islands in the world. The Villa is very large and has one of the nicest views anybody could ever ask for. It's located in a quaint and quiet little area removed from the hustle and bustle. The villa is located about a 10 minute drive from the new Bushy Park Racing Circuit.

What makes this villa unique

The property always seems to have a nice breeze. The view is of the south east coast and always has big beautiful surf. The villa 5 verandahs that overlook the ocean. Each bedroom has it's own full bathroom. Its a wonderful area to just go for a walk to the lighthouse or a hike along the coast.Some of the nicest beaches in the Carribean are very close by as well.

Magical with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had the pleasure of staying at Orion's View at the beginning of February, for 7 nights. It was just the two of us and to say this place was excessive for two people is an understatement, we felt like celebrities. The pictures on the website do not do this place justice. It is a lot bigger in person.

Bert (Orion's caretaker) met us at the airport and helped us load our luggage into our rental car. He then took us grocery shopping and showed us were to get the best deals on produce. After we stocked up, he took us to our abode for the week.

Orion's view is located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a residential neighborhood. The neighbors are incredibly friendly. The women across the street has a little bar and restaurant. She is one hell of a cook. Her name is Jackie and Bert will introduce you to her when you arrive. Lisa and Andrew, the neighbors to the left of Orion's View have a boat and take people on snorkeling tours. Take advantage of these connections during your stay, you will be pleased that you did.

The villa was well furnished and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. There were books, magazines, a large selection of tv channels and games. You really don't need to leave if you don't want to. Something that was a nice surprise to us was the heart shaped jacuzzi style bath tub in the master bedroom. The salt water pool and was fantastic but the out door hot tub did not work. This did not bother us much as we used the jacuzzi in our bathroom during our stay.

Below the house is a small beach. It is absolutely gorgeous, but the currents are too strong for swimming. It is so picturesque that my future husband proposed to me there. Keep an eye out for rainbows. We saw 4 in one day. We saw a double rainbow and one that actually ended in Orion's back yard. We didn't even know that this was scientifically possible.

Our trip was magical and I promise you will not be disappointed if you stay at Orion's view.

P.S. If you want to see a bit of history, check out Sam Lord's Castle. If you walk to the beach there are these two local guys that are always there. They know everything about it. Their names are Fred and Derek. They are super cool. Tell them Jenny and Josh sent you.

Owner's Response: Hi Jenny and Josh So glad you enjoyed your special trip. I'm also glad you got to see some of the local beaches. They really are the nicest on the island. Hopefully we will see the two of you back for an anniversary in the near future.

Loved our Vacation at Orion's View!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Orion’s View for 8 Days – May 16 thru 24. I’d been planning the vacation for over a year and had been talking to Kevin (owner) about the villa since Feb. 2013. There were 7 of us travelling together. The villa is exactly as pictured, and better in some cases. Kevin is truly a pleasure to deal with, and the caretaker, Bert is very happy and eager to please. We rented our van from Stoute’s on Kevin’s recommendation. Bert met us at the airport exit and assisted us in the rental (we added him to our rental contract so that he was able to drive the van too). We loaded our luggage and guests in the van and his vehicle and followed him to the grocery store for some ‘essentials’ on the way to the villa. Driving on the left side of the road was a new experience for my husband, but not difficult if you are careful and conscious of where you are driving at all times! The grocery store at Six Roads (Emerald City) is quite large and has a large variety of all products. In the same vicinity, there is also a Chefette (fast food – try the Roti) as well as a couple Chinese food restaurants. Upon arrival at the villa, we found it to be more than sufficient to accommodate all of us, with much room to spare. You are located in a very residential area. We found it to be very safe and the people are very friendly. The villa was well furnished and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Please note, there is no air conditioning. Each room has a ceiling fan and several have an additional floor fan. Bert showed us around the villa, made sure we had enough towels (beach and pool) and then took us across the road and introduced us to the owner of Jackie’s Bar and Grill. Jackie is a very pleasant woman. She explained what services she offered and that her busy nights are Friday and Saturday (Karaoke Night is loud, but only the one night). We took advantage of her services 5-6 nights that we were there – ordering our dinners, and one night, a family style Bajan supper. Her prices are very reasonable (and it sure beat us cooking!) at $8-12 per person (depending on what you ordered). As a take out restaurant her service worked well. Remember to order the night before, or in the morning, so she has time to make up the dinners and can meet any needs. So, as far as the villa, we all found it comfortable and enjoyed the pool immensely. As far as negatives go, we had some difficulti

Great place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended, you can't go wrong, we will certainly come back again. We had a group of 8 including 3 young kids. The property is in a residential setting in an out of the way location surrounded by homes of friendly locals. The villa is huge with plenty of living space, comfortable for our large group. Five comfortable bedrooms, lot's of balconies and a breathtaking views of the east coast from the balconies, deck and backyard.

A car is a must. We traveled daily to different beaches. Some of the most spectacular beaches are very nearby, with Bottom Bay being one of the closest... about 5 minutes away by car... the most beautiful beach I have ever seen with cliffs on each side, powder soft white sand and big waves. The kids enjoyed swimming at beaches on the south coast (about 30 minutes away) and boogie boarding at the beach at the Crane.

There is a large grocery store within a 15 minutes drive of the villa where you can find everything you need. Local vegetable stands offer a good deal on fresh tasty food. The driving takes a bit of time to get used to, but it is generally relaxed and slow paced.

The salt water pool was loved by the kids. The neighbour, Jackie, runs a bar and grill out of her house and cooked us a wonderful traditional Bajan meal for us one night for a reasonable price. We visited her a number of times for a drink and friendly chat with the locals. They hold a karaoke party every second Saturday night which is loud, but we were aware of this and prepared. The kids slept right through it, just wish they had slept in a bit the next morning :-). Other than the one night, the neighbourhood was quiet and the street on which the house is located is friendly and peaceful, there was never much noise from the restaurant the rest of our stay.

We didn't have any problems on our trip at all. Bert, the house manager, checked in on us regularly (to clean the pool) and provided us with a phone number for us to contact him if we needed him any time. He responded quickly when we had questions.

The owner was very good to deal with, provided lot's of information and called the day after we arrived to make sure everything was okay, which was appreciated.

Next time we go to Barbados, this property will be high on our list of places we will want to stay. It is a quiet area, not busy like the south and west coasts. Having a car let's you spend the day or evening in the crowds and escape back to a secluded, quiet place where you can rest and relax.

Beautiful & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The view was breathtaking and the house was huge! We spent most of our evenings either in the pool or just hanging out on the balcony playing cards. No reason to go out when you're here!

My family went to Barbados for my sister's wedding. The villa proved to be the perfect location for the bride to get ready and have beautiful pictures taken with her groom.

Bert, the house manager, was warm and friendly (like the rest of the people of Barbados) and was checking in with us on a regular basis to make sure we were all good.

The villa is definitely out of the way of everything so rent a car if you are planning on sightseeing.

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

There was a party of 7 of us. When we arrived Bert was there waiting for us. When we arrived at the villa we could not believe how clean and spacious the layout of the property. Not only was the view spectacular so was the community. Jackie is a wealth of knowledge and if you want to experience the culture of Barbados I would recommend having her make you a Bajan dish.

A car is a most as everything is pretty far from the villa. We travelled almost daily into the St. Lawrence Gap to shop and do some sightseeing-one must try the flying fish. Another beautiful attraction is Crane beach and there is a local beach that is also beautiful.

Even though there is no a/c we always had a nice breeze coming off the ocean- it was hot but again the fans and breeze made it pleasurable.

The owner Kevin was professional and gave us extremely good advice prior to travelling to Barbados. Any questions I would ask Kevin he would respond to my emails within minutes-literally. He was a real nice person to converse and do business with. Without any hesitation I would recommend this property, trust me you will not be disappointed. We are all definitely going back next fall!
