MAGNIFICENT 4 BEDROOM VILLA OVERLOOKING THE BEACH AT ALLEYNES BAY, ST. JAMES

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Mount Standfast - 1 Storehouse Gap

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Villa With Pool And Magnificent Views

Built in 2006 this beautiful 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom villa is our family holiday home. Its prime location on the ridge takes advantage of the magnificent uninterrupted views out to Sea whilst still being close enough to be within walking distance of the local beach and facilities. The stunning views are beautiful by day and in the evening the outside areas are fabulous for al fresco dining/BBQ or simply sit under the stars with a glass of wine and watch the cruise ships sail off into the distance. Our villa combines the luxury of Barbados with the comforts of home! A huge wooden deck leads from the house to the pool with gardens to all sides. The lounge area is split level with comfy sofas, armchairs and reading sofa. The entrance to the house has its own covered verandah for escaping the sun. The villa has TV, DVD and a large stock of music and films plus games and a small library. WIFI is available throughout the property and out on the deck/ pool area. Local telephone calls are free.

Having spent several months a year in Barbados over the last decade I have acquired great knowledge (and contacts) on the Island. Indeed I have written several features for UK magazines (e.g. Rare, Place in the Sun) about the attractions on the Island. I can arrange almost anything for our guests from a complete holiday itinerary, car hire, restaurant reservations, boat trips to taxis and florists! We want you to enjoy our home and this beautiful Island as much as we do!

Whilst a car is not essential it is recommended if you wish to take advantage of what Barbados has to offer and the villa has 2 private parking spaces.

Our housekeeper Sylvia is a wonderful local lady with a vast array of knowledge and information and included in the rental rates she will visit twice weekly to clean the house, change the beds/towels and generally just ensure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Guests who require the housekeeper on a more frequent basis will pay her direct for additional days.

Our gardener and pool man attend weekly.

Fulfilled every expectation and more!

  • 5 out of 5
Having looked at the photographs so many times before our arrival we felt immediately "at home" in this beautiful house. Having been to Barbados many times staying at hotels this was our first foray into self catering. We were travelling with our daughter, son in law and two granddaughters aged 3 and 4 and decided that this was the best option for our family.
Well it was just perfect. Sylvia was there to welcome us and proved to be an invaluable friend on the island who was always happy to help with our queries and kept the house beautiful.
The furnishings, towels and bed linens are all top quality and I can honestly say we wanted for nothing, every need was provided for. The beds were extremely comfortable, the house so well equipped . The large decking area and the pool were ideal for the children and we just has so much fun. The shady terrace was wonderful if it got too hot and ideal for our family meals.
Barbara had prebooked us a 7 Seater suzuki "van" which we couldn't have done without, both to introduce our family to the island and going for supplies to the local supermarket.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend both Barbara and her lovely house to everyone and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

We were excited leading up to our arrival ,as we had seen the photographs and read the reviews, however in reality upon our arrival we were overwhelmed with the property,the location in relation to the beach,the stunning view from the balconies ,the amazingly well equipped house. We would highly recommend this property so much so we have already booked for next year.

Fabulous villa, sunset ocean views from deck

  • 5 out of 5
This is a great villa in a great setting. The deck with pool has uninterrupted views over the ocean and it is only a five minute walk to a great beach. The villa was spotless with a very friendly and helpful local manager. Barbara the owner couldn't have done more to make our stay a success, she booked our car hire but best of all recommended great restaurants and got us waterside tables all over christmas. She also recommended a local cook who came to the villa and cooked us a private bajan meal - great value. The villa is right in the centre of the west coast which must be the most convenient part of the island to stay with everywhere an easy drive. I wouldn't stay anywhere else but here if you are going to barbados.

Owner's Response: So glad you all had an amazing stay at our house- especially as it was your first visit to Barbados. Getting into your preferred restaurants and having the right accommodation can be difficult over the Xmas period but thankfully you booked the house early and together we were organised enough to sort out bookings well in advance. Sylvia always looks after my guests well and I'm glad the evening in with Pam cooking local bajan food was a great success. I look forward to welcoming you all back in 2014. And many thanks for looking after our home.

Stunning Setting, Beautiful Accommodation.

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we made contact with owner, Barbara, we really felt that we had made a great choice on our holiday accommodation. She has been such a great help in terms of individual advice on car hire, restaurants, places to see and visit – she has a wealth of knowledge about the house and the locality. Any requests for information and clarification on detail were responded to promptly and accurately.
All that she described, and all that the website promotes didn’t really do justice to this lovely home! When my wife stepped over the threshold she gasped and it even left my daughter speechless – some feat! It just feels so luxurious – from the furniture and fittings, the cleanliness, the kitchen facilities and of course not forgetting the very welcome ‘welcome pack’.
Step through the lounge and through the fantastic outdoor seating and dining area and you’re confronted with a view to die for. I spent many hours sitting and soaking up the ever-changing view of the Caribbean, and looked forward to what tonight’s sunset would have in store for us.
The master bedroom is a particularly spectacular feature of the house - 'facetiming' with less fortunate family members back home in UK left them green with envy!
Housekeeper Sylvia is a god-send and another great source of local knowledge – a real treasure – and nothing was too much trouble; she kept the house looking immaculate throughout our stay.
The location is superb, so quiet and yet easy to find and so close to the beautiful beach and all that it presents. Local beaches were really quiet for our July/August stay and the sea was so calm and clear.
The island is so beautiful and the people so friendly and relaxed – Store House Gap made sure that we had a great holiday – no stress, no hassle and no excuse for not kicking back and relaxing for the duration.
We’ll be back.

Wonderful stay - Everything was perfect!!

  • 5 out of 5
I would highly recommend staying at this villa!! From the very beginning Barbara (the owner) was hugely helpful and made the whole process so easy. The villa is just as lovely as it looks in the pictures, the pool is brillant and the welcome pack was great! The villa has everything you could possibly need for big family meals (including a BBQ). The location is great, literally a 10min walk down a hill to the beach and if you don't have a car (which you should hire for at least a couple of days to explore the rest of the amazing island) you can get buses on the main road by the beach to the nearby supermarket and other towns. I will be recommending this to anyone I know going to Barbados and my family and I will certainly be back!
