Situated on a ridge, Coral Cliff House is north of Speightstown on the west coast of Barbados and about a quarter of a mile from the sea. From the elevated position and calm of the lush tropical garden you can enjoy the spectacular sight of the sun slipping under the Caribbean Sea.
The house was built as a family home in the 1960s to a specific design so that all the rooms take full advantage of the cooling Trade Winds. The house is in original condition and retains all of the original retro-rustic features. There are several outdoor living spaces, a swimming pool with paved surrounds, and the house is set in a one-acre garden providing privacy and tranquillity without being isolated.
The living and dining room open with sliding doors on two sides to the attractive alfresco area and patio which lead to the pool and gardens.
The kitchen is simple but spacious, airy and fully equipped with a double electric oven and hob, large fridge/freezer, kettle, slow cooker, toaster and microwave oven. Ample crockery and cutlery is provided to cater for 12 people. There is a gas BBQ outside and a separate laundry with automatic washing machine, iron and ironing board for the guests' use.
The private swimming pool is close to the house with sun loungers and garden chairs surrounded by one acre of lawns, flower beds and shady tropical trees.
The house does not have air-conditioning but is situated high on the cliff and benefits from constant, cooling Trade Winds throughout the year. The variable speed ceiling fans provide more air circulation should guests require it.
Onita, our long serving and characterful house keeper, comes in the mornings from Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays. Onita will look after washing up, bed making and laundering of bed linen and towels, and cleaning the house. Also she is a great help with local traditions, and local information.
