Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in St. Philip - 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. Both the master and bath do have newly added air conditioning. 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 St. Philip

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.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying I don't normally offer feedback for any site but I felt the need to acknowledge how great this property really is. I have worked in the hospitality industry my entire life and have been fortunate to travel to several places all round the world but this is one of the most picturesque places I have ever seen. As nice as the pictures are in the listing, they do not do the views justice.

The property is clean, quiet and most importantly, safe. The house is huge and is very comfortable whether you have a large or small group. Jackie across the street offers great meals at very reasonable prices.

I think the best part about this property for our group was the privacy. Having the pool to use while overlooking the ocean was priceless. Everything is so close on the island that you can pretty much get anywhere on the island within a 45 minute drive.

Finally, thank you to Kevin and Bert for taking care of us. You will not find nicer people to deal with. There are many options when travelling but we will return to Orion's View again.

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people staying at this house in January of 2016. It was a great house with everything you need. The kitchen was fully equipped and even had satellite tv. We were fortunate enough to stay in the master suite, which was air conditioned. The master suite is huge with a massive bathroom. My only suggestion would be to have air conditioning

throughout the house. There are great breezes, however it is a bit stuffy.

The house is on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean and the view are awesome.

The other rooms are also very comfortable with bathrooms attached to each room. The area is very quiet and friendly.

Jackie's Bar across the road is the absolute best for food. We ordered from her three times. The food is so delicious, so easy and convenient and so tasty. The prices are extremely affordable. I would definitely recommend this property.

Bert was also very accommodating and visited if there was a problem (the internet wasn't working one day).

The owner, Kevin, also called while we were here to ensure everything was to our liking.

We travelled about 40 minutes each day to "The Gap" and Dover Beach to surf. It is a bit farther out, but enjoyed the peace and quiet.

I would highly recommend this house for couples or families that enjoy the quiet lifestyle.

WORTH THE VIEW

  • 4 of 5

Our recent stay in this spacious home was just what we needed to relax and enjoy the beautiful Island of Barbados. The rooms had spectacular views and the gentle ocean breeze kept us relaxed and comfortable. Each room was conveniently located for maximum privacy and included its own full bath. We were grateful for the personal attention given us right from the start. We were met at the Airport by the Home’s Caretaker Bert. Anything we needed, he made sure we received. Spending a week in a new home in a foreign country has its challenges and sometimes our expectations are not quite what we imagined. However, the first night we arrived, we were warmly treated with a home (local) cooked meal by Jackie from the Grill across the street. She was available to cook on short notice and provided the meals at a reasonable price. The Owner was available for any questions that came up and even allowed us to use his phone to call the U.S.

There were some slight misconceptions with the Property. The short walk to the Beach below was longer than expected and the Beach itself was really not appropriate for swimming or sun bathing. However, the Beach at Bottom Bay and the Crane Beach, both close by, were worth visiting. The Home could use some minor repairs with the windows but for the most part was clean and tidy for our comfort.

Overall, the stay was enjoyable and worth the rental value. Any adjustments or concerns were warmly welcomed by the Owner which made us feel that our views were important and would lead to possible changes that would make future visitors happier and more satisfied.

Spacious villa with a view to die for!

  • 5 of 5

Our UK party of 8 found the villa spacious and well-equipped. Numerous bathrooms, the pool, the ocean view. Wow!

Owner, Kevin, was extremely helpful from the start. His suggestion of pre-booking a 'Jackie' meal for our arrival worked well. We took advantage of Jackie's culinary talents twice during our stay and sipped cold beer and rum cocktails several times at her bar on our doorstep.

Other dining experiences we loved were East Point Bar and Grill, The Roundhouse (another view to die for!), Cafe Luna, Marco Polo and various restaurants at The Crane Hotel.

The younger members of our party were delighted not to lose their lifeline (internet access!) during our stay. The villa's wi-fi worked well considering there were times when all 8 of us were accessing it at once.

Our 'away from it all' villa was a great base for visiting the island's attractions. Nearby beautiful beaches such as Bottom Bay and Bathsheba, or a 30-40 minute drive took us to calm, aquamarine Caribbean beaches like Alleyne Beach and Pebble Beach. At Mullins Bay we swam out to a floating raft with benches. Watching the sunset from that raft was a moment of magic I will never forget! Other highlights included a visit to St Nicholas Abbey, a walk along the boardwalk at Hastings, the Mount Gay Rum Distillery tour and a brief escape from the heat in the Harrison Caves.

The biggest highlight was our snorkel trip with Therapy Charters. Our crew of 2 sailed us to the perfect Caribbean location for swimming with turtles and shipwrecks.

The villa's drive-way was perfectly sized for our 2 hire cars. Although there are regular bus services everywhere I'd recommend hiring your own vehicle, ideally 4-wheel drive as there are numerous pot-holes, particularly hard to spot post-sunset!

We knew that the villa had no air conditioning, and were happy to take a chance on sea-breezes and fans. For most of our household this was adequate, but some of us did struggle to sleep, especially on nights when the breeze had dropped as it got very hot and sticky. If the choice was mine, I'd come for a return visit to Orion's View only if they installed air conditioning, but I know it wasn't such an issue with other members of my party. It's a matter of preference. If you're not usually bothered about air con, you'll probably be fine. I'm guessing air con would bump up the price, somewhat, so it depends on what's a bigger priority for you. Over all, you’re getting value for money and a real gem of a property.

Owner's Response: Hi Karen Really glad you guys enjoyed the villa and your time on the island. We took your advice and just finished installing AC in the main floor bed and bath. With the villa being over 7000 square feet its just too large to have AC all over but we figured the main master get the most use.

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.
