Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom - Sleeps 6 People

Astra sits on a high coral cliff overlooking the sweeping arc of Foul Bay Beach on the southeast coast of Barbados. From this unique vantage, you can watch the sun rise out of the Atlantic and the Sea Turtles feeding below. If what you are looking for is perfect tranquillity, privacy without isolation, security and serenity--but with every contemporary convenience--you will find it at Astra.

The House itself is an excellent example of island vernacular architecture, with shuttered windows on four sides and a wide veranda along the east and south side of the house, which face the beach and ocean. The house has its own infinity pool set on the coral cliff with a breathtaking view of the ocean and beach below.

Perfect for families of up to six or two to three couples vacationing together. Astra offers casual comfort, seclusion, and easy access to one of the least crowded beaches on the island of Barbados all within 10 minutes of the airport.

ASTRA VILLA, ST. PHILIP, BARBADOS...WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5

As a 'prelim' to the review below...

My wife and I have been traveling to the Caribbean regularly for the past 25 years or so. We fell in love with Barbados early in our traveling and ended up owning a beach house on the island for ten years. Once we sold it, we continued to revisit yearly (or more...).

I just wanted to mention that to explain that we know Barbados very well...have stayed at an array of resorts and private rentals through the years.

We booked Barbados for ten days at Astra for a number of reasons and could not be happier with our choice.

Absolutely without doubt, the BEST place we have ever experienced on the island.

The manicured grounds...the gardens...the villa itself...the pool (amazing) and the view from the pool deck to Foul Bay (even more amazing...) were outstanding.

The villa is very very comfortable, spacious and has everything a group or family needs. (we were there with our children and grandson...).

The St. Philip breeze from the sea just adds to an already perfect spot.

I cannot thank Stoute and Sons enough for everything they did to ensure we had a perfect holiday.

We will return in 2017, without doubt.

If you are thinking of a villa holiday in Barbados to experience something away from hotels and crowds...book Astra. You will NOT be disappointed, that is for sure.

Many thanks again.

Astra- Foul Bay Stay from 20th Jan to 4th Feb 2015

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Foul Bay tremendously. In particular that pool is just beautiful; a dip before breakfast seemed to set us up for the day and it was delightful to sit around later in the day.

The villa suited us well. The spacious living area and the bedrooms are really good. A shame there is no second en-suite and that the one en-suite is with the smallest bedroom. That apart we found it extremely comfortable and cool enough at night without air-conditioning. Outside the gardens are attractive and well maintained.

Finally Junie was a real treasure and looked after us as much as we needed.
