Our is Villa situated in the exclusive resort community of Sugar Hill St James on the spectacular West Coast of Barbados. In a cool elevated section of the beautifully landscaped grounds of Sugar Hill. Facilities include 2 swimming pools, fitness gym and tennis courts. Maid service 5 mornings a week.

On the ground floor there is a large bedroom furnished with king size bed and ensuite shower room. French doors open onto the large terrace. Upstairs 2 further bedrooms both opening through French doors onto private balconies. One bedroom has a queen size bed and ensuite shower room.

Sugar HIll is on the West coast of Barbados in St James bordering the Caribbean Sea, wonderful for swimming and all watersport activities. At most hotels there is on offer water skiing, snorkeling and diving. Just drive into the hotel and tell security that you are going to the water sports area. Or call ahead and reserve time with your selected water spots facility. Fishing boats are on hire for deep sea fishing, there are many day and night trips on a variety of boats with snorkeling with lunch and drinks included.

If you prefer to explore the island and are interested in history, drive into The Garrison area which has recently become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is unique because it has survived intact, the buildings are now used for other purposes, becoming homes and business premises. Go to St Anns Fort and see the fine collection of 16th 17th Century cannons. An old custom has been revived every Wednesday at 11.50 at the Clock Tower the Changing of the sentry takes place, its free and charming with a small band playing and the personell dressed in their traditional Zoave unfforms it is a step back in time.The Barbados Museum is nearby, housed in the old hospital and prison, well worth a visit to see so many historical aspects of Barbados displayed together. George Washington House is on The Garrison, Barbados is the only country he visited outside the USA. It is a charming house beautifully and sensitively restored, the visit opens with an infomative film. For National Trust members entry is free bring your NT card with you for entry and also for use at other properties in Bds.

National Trust also include Andromeda Gardens - fabulous botanical garden planted in the 50,s by Iris Bannochie,Arlington House in Speightstown, and if you are visiting in the winter there is the National Trust series of Open Houses to visit. A reduced fee is paid on production of your NT card.

Do visit the magnificent East Coast, breath the fresh air straight from Africa, walk the beaches, take care if swimming as it is dangerous but there are rock pools to explore and paddle in to cool off. Drive along the East Coast Road now called ( I think Emmy Bourne Highway).

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Sugar Hill resort is wonderfully placed to enjoy the best that Barbados has to offer. Saint James has a fabulous run of restaurants and quiet secluded west coast beaches. The villa is well appointed with a fine well equipped kitchen. The large terrace provides ample opportunity for al fresco dining and the pool is just a hundred feet or so away. All the bedrooms have direct access to the outside by either private balcony or the terrace. Sugar Hill itself has many nice features. The view from the clubhouse is spectacular and that view is available from the pool, bar and restaurant. A brisk walk around the grounds is a great way to get the day started. Barbados has all you would expect in a caribbean island. Great beaches, diving, golf and sail cruises but there is a unique feel to Barbados that I believe stems from its history and topography.

We have visted many islands and Barbados has the most diverse types of terrain of any place we have been. The east coast looks like the Big Sur while the south reminds me of the Bahamas. We took a zip line adventure throught he trees and had lunch at the east coast Atlantis hotel with the surf crashing right below our window. We toured a historic sugar plantation and stopped by the Mount Gay store for some supplies. We had dinner and drinks at a number of very refined posh establishments in Saint James and also had a great meal in a local Friday night fish fry. The night sky is very clear and I had my first unforgettable look at the Southern Cross. All in all a great vacation and we look forward to returning to Barbados and Sugar Hill many times in the future.

Beautiful Villa !!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say about this beautiful villa other than its..amazing. We had a wonderful stay in Coconut Shell, the villa decor and outside space make this villa a truly wonderful place to spend time. The pool and resort amenties were great. Manty stayed in contact with us during our bookings and was extremley helpful, as to was Morine the housekeeper who couldn't do enough for us.

We would definetly come back to Coconut Shell on our next visit to Barbados.

Thank you Veronica and Stuart for letting us stay.

Second visit and just as good

  • 5 of 5

As the title suggests we visited Barbados last February and loved it so much we immediately booked for this year. The house layout suits us perfectly with 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin over 2 floors. My Mother travelled with us and having her own room downstairs was brilliant. Manty looks after us very well and acts as my wine merchant which is incredibly dangerous as I'm always disappointed with the Rose at home in the UK, it just doesn't taste the same without the requisite sunshine.

There is a new lady called Karon who tidies the house and changes the beds etc each morning, it works really well and she is very friendly and terribly efficient.

It is a super property in an idyllic setting. If we ever visited Barbados again there is nowhere else I would wish to stay.

Wonderful holiday at beautiful Coconut Shell.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday staying at this beautifully furnished, immaculately clean and very well equipped lovely house. At Sugar Hill we enjoyed using the tennis courts and two swimming pools which were never busy. At the fabulous infinity pool you can enjoy cocktails while watching the sun go down. Food and drinks are served all day at Spagos at the infinity pool. We also loved our beach days Royal Pavilion affiliated to Sugar Hill, where you can enjoy the lovely beach bar/restaurant and the sun loungers and umbrellas provided to residents of Sugar Hill.

Sugar Hill is ideally located to enjoy the superb selection of restaurants to suit every taste and pocket, beaches and water sports that the West Coast has to offer.

I would not hesitate to recommend Coconut Shell to anyone.

Best villa on the Island!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for my husband's 30th birthday - how lucky were we! It's presented to the highest standard with everything you could wish for. The housekeeper keeps it spotless; I was desperate to take her home! It felt like staying in a hotel but with the freedom of self catering.

For things to do, we would highly recommend trying the catamaran with Silver Moon, the Island Safari and Harrison's Cave. For places to eat, visit Daphne's for a special treat.

A big thank you to Manty for looking after us so well and Veronica for the The Royal Fairmont membership cards - a beach you must visit and don't leave before swimming in the sea!

If we're lucky enough to return to Barbados in the future, we would only stay here.

Delightful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Very happy to award 5 stars.

Manty and the team were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.

We received a very friendly welcome from Heather, who had kindly supplied us with all the groceries we had asked for.

The property was very clean and in excellent decorative order, with good quality furniture and pretty much everything you could wish for. I would say it was as well appointed as any holiday property we have ever rented.

Both pools were lovely and the beach facility was excellent as well.

We had a lazy time which was perfect.....!

Would recommend Cool Running boat trip and Lone Star restauranat on beach for a very pleasant lunch.

Would love to return.

Sugar HIll is situated on a ridge overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Speightstown, is a very interesting place to visit, buy your vegetables at the weekend or visit the Gallery of Caribbean Art or Arlington Museum. Have a drink at one of the local bars and meet the friendly Bajans.Travelling north drive to St Nicolas Abbey ( not an abbey a private home) a restored Jacobean plantation house with its own 10 year old rum for sale and a unique film showing Barbados in the 30's. Continue on to the dramatic east coast, stop and have lunch at The Atlantis Hotel, enjoy the beautiful Atlantic unspoilt beaches.Nearer to Sugar Hill, Holetown with super market, shopping and many restaurants to visit. St James church is in Holetown A lovely old building to visit.
