Overview

About the property

Large Sugar Hill house with jacuzzi and spectacular views of Caribbean Sea

We are perfect for couples, families and all age groups. Windswept villa, with our own jacuzzi, table tennis, plunge pool in our lovely tropical gardens, offers a perfect Barbadian holiday because we offer the benefits of a home with the amenities of a hotel. We are set on a ridge on the West Coast of Barbados with fantastic views of the nearby Caribbean Sea. Being slightly elevated we benefit not only from the views but also from the gentle breezes that blow east to west - a life saver during the hot season. We are part of the beautiful gated community resort of Sugar Hill where you can enjoy the amenities of a hotel - great gym, tennis courts, stunning infinity pools, on site restaurant, 24/7 security. Having that security element gives real peace of mind and if you're a family with children it's lovely that they can explore, play, wander around in complete safety. It means that you can relax too!

So, if you just want to lounge by the pool, sip cocktails and have a leisurely lunch in the nearby restaurant, watch an amazing sunset from our terrace, relax with a well deserved sundowner in our jacuzzi - the list goes on - this is the place for you.

Also, you are only a few minutes from those endless stretches of golden palm-tree lined beaches that are lapped by the warm Caribbean waters. And it's fun to explore the beach bars and local restaurants nestled in the palm trees of many of our nearby beaches. And if you need a bit more activity there's the hustle and bustle of Holetown nearby with its restaurants and tax free shopping.

Having recently returned to the UK for our children's education these are the things we miss most about our Caribbean home - walking upstairs to our large, bright, airy living room with French doors opening onto the terrace and the stunning view - vast Caribbean Sea, massive blue sky and humming birds darting around. We do most of our eating outside in the warm shade of this terrace but there's also a dining table inside if you prefer. The house has slatted windows and is positioned so we benefit from the easterly breeze but there are overhead fans in all the rooms. The well equipped kitchen is upstairs too along with a bathroom and private study area. The house has wifi throughout and we have a TV and DVD library.

All the bedrooms are downstairs. The two larger rooms are en suite with French doors opening onto the downstairs terrace that has a large awning which is really useful when the sun is at its strongest. You can have lots of fun here with playing table tennis then jumping in the plunge pool to cool down before taking a jacuzzi - there's nothing better than having a jacuzzi as the sun is going down and watching the fireflies dancing amongst the palm trees. The gardens around our villa are large with lots of fruit trees that we've planted over the years including mangoes, Bajan cherry, bananas, avocado pear, guava. We grow limes the size of grapefruits and if they're in season you'll be able use for your G&T or rum punch, and the mango tree drips with mangoes in the summer.

Back to the bedrooms - all are air conditioned as well as having overhead fans. Within the main villa we have a king and queen bed, then bedroom with two single beds and vanity sink unit. We also have a travel cot/crib available.

The fourth bedroom is in the Guest Cottage, set apart in our garden with its own terrace, kitchenette and bathroom. This is a perfect set up that gives additional privacy - use of the Guest Cottage will incur an additional nightly fee.

All our guests have access to the whole villa (and cottage by prior agreement), plus our gardens, private pool, jacuzzi and table tennis table, as well as all the amenities that Sugar Hill has to offer.

In addition to our own garden, Sugar Hill offers a number of large common grassy areas where the children can play football, fly kites, run around etc. in complete safety. It's also lovely to walk around the estate when it's cooler at sunrise or sunset. You never know, you might spot the odd celeb!

Sugar Hill is one of the premier resorts in Barbados, beautifully maintained with lush tropical gardens. There is full time, 24 hour security and helpful staff at the desk of the club house. Sugar Hill is peaceful and safe. There are two fabulous pools, the club house pool has a negative edge overlooking the Caribbean Sea and there's a paddling area for younger children, and the 'waterfall pool' nestled amongst palm trees. There are 4 flood lit tennis courts and coaching is available by arrangement with the resident pro. For those who want to keep up their exercise there is a well equipped gymnasium. The club house also has a restaurant with good varied menu.

Whilst taxis and buses are plentiful it is definitely worth hiring a car because there's so much to explore on the island and Sugar Hill is perfectly placed - rugged east coast where you can take a sea bath and watch the surfers around Bathsheba, white sand beaches of the west coast with fabulous beach-side dining alongside local rum shops, catamaran cruises, the pink beaches down at the Crane, historic Bridgetown with George Washington House, Scotland district in the north with a drive past Morgan Lewis mill which can still grind sugar cane. There are various riding stables, zip lining, international polo tournaments and polo lessons a short drive away at Apes Hill, international cricket at the Kensington Oval (the crowds are just as entertaining as the matches!), horse racing at the Garrison - the list goes on..

Also, there's a pretty good local bus service along the main coastal routes and it's inexpensive at US$1 per ride - you could easily get to Bridgetown this way and taking a trip down to the fish fry at Oistins on a Friday night would be even more of an adventure by bus! You can also take a safari tour and explore the island in a jeep if that appeals.

About Mandy

Having worked in London for years I moved to Barbados in 2001 and that's where I had my children, who were very lucky to be brought up in the beautiful warmth and freedom of the tropics. However, all good things come to an end and we returned to the UK a couple of years ago for their education.

Mandy purchased this villa in 1997

Why Mandy chose Mount Standfast

Sugar Hill is on a ridge on the West Coast of Barbados, overlooking the vast stretches of the Caribbean Sea. It's lovely being on the ridge rather than on the beach as we benefit from the gentle easterly breeze that blows through the house keeping it cool, as well as the stunning views. Beach side living has never appealed as it's so hot and sticky! Our own home has a plunge pool to keep you cool during the day, and as the sun sets you can have a refreshing jacuzzi in the garden. We have a ping pong table so you can have table tennis tournaments if you feel up to it. The set up of main house and cottage works really well too as the cottage is set slightly apart from the house and is self contained with kitchenette and en suite. It's very private but we also benefit from living in a gated community where we have very helpful security men and women who keep an eye day and night, and the reception staff at the Club House are very helpful too. So, it's a safe place to live and one of the few places where it's perfectly fine for the kids to roam around outside, exploring, playing tennis, enjoying the fabulous communal pools.

Fantastic 2 week stay

  • 4 of 5

This is our 3rd time at Sugar Hill but our 1st at Windswept. The villa is exactly as described in the narrative, its well appointed, nicely decorated, (master bed is HUGE!) airy, light, probably the best bit about it is the veranda off the lounge with stunning sea views and because its on the first floor gets amazing trade winds. We sat out here for hours, even when downstairs by the plunge pool was too hot due to little wind, it was always airy on the veranda - and sitting out here at night watching the stars and listening to the silence (well not quite..) but the silence and the frogs chirping - was fantastic.

Communications with Amanda the owner were first class and she was always immediately responsive, even though there is a villa manager to deal with any queries. Because we have been before we didn't need much help but the offer to books trips, cars, reservations was there if needed, although Marcia did kindly arrange the taxi transfer for us.

Sugar Hill is second to none, five minutes drive from Holetown and Limegrove, but secure (24 hour security), two massive pools to choose from the main one with a view to die for and because of clever positioning always nice breeze by the main pool, gym (though we were too lazy to use it!) and tennis courts, plus lovely to walk around, the whole complex is immaculate. Club House is lovely with nice restaurant (although opening less hours due to low season). Though we used the main pool more for swimming, the plunge pool at the villa is handy - but we did surprisingly use the jacuzzi a few times at night, was fab! nice extra.

Almost didn't want to write this review wanted to keep SH a secret! Windswept is lovely, thanks Amanda

Beautiful spot and property with very nice amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and modern, very nicely decorated. We traveled with two small kids and they felt at home right away. They loved the pool across the street and the small restaurant served nice food that the whole family enjoyed. Amanda was a very friendly and efficient communicator. We highly recommend this property.

Windswept is located within the exclusive Sugar Hill resort, in the parish of St James on the west coast of Barbados.

Sugar Hill is peaceful and safe. There are two fabulous pools, the club house pool has a negative edge overlooking the Caribbean Sea and there's a paddling area for younger children, and the 'waterfall pool' nestled amongst palm trees.
