About Katie Shellard
Hi, I am Katie. Welcome to 180 Biflora Row, Sunset Crest. This villa was purchased in 2012 and has been carefully renovated. Modernising this lovely villa was quite a task, but I hope you will agree this is now a very comfortable holiday home. The villa was built in the 1960s and we wanted to keep the traditional charm of the villa but add some modern touches, such as the pale ceramic floor tiles and useful dishwasher, All the linen and towels have been upgraded to cool clean cotton and crockery and cutlery are all new with a generous supply of wine and cocktail glasses. We hope that you will find this villa a warm and welcoming holiday home. We have high standards, keeping the villa clean and tidy. We expect our guests to do the same and respect the villa. The villa is beautifully cared for by our lovely housekeeper and guests will find crisp cotton sheets and towels on arrival plus beach towels for use by the pool or beach. If you are looking for a smart, comfortable, Non-smoking, family villa, we would be pleased to welcome you.

Why Katie Shellard chose Sunset Crest
Sun, sun, sun! There are few places in the world you can go during the winter and guarantee it will be sunny and warm. And this is one. If you're looking for an escape from the gloom and rain in the UK or perhaps Canada, look no further. Even when it does rain in Barabados it is always warm.
What makes this Villa unique
This is one of the few properties in Sunset Crest that has a private pool. If you'd like to take a dip at 6:00 a.m or midnight, the pool is only a few steps away. No need to share with the neighbours! We have a very friendly and knowledgeable property manager - Rachel. She will meet you at the villa and show you round. She is happy to advise on anything you may need during your holiday, such as groceries, baby sitting, restaurants. A membership card for the Sunset Crest beach club is provided and will also get discount at several local stores and cafes. As we spend several weeks every year in the villa ourselves, we do try to ensure that there is everything you need for a really enjoyable vacation. Holetown is the centre of the glitzy West coast and staying at Biflora, you are minutes away from all the amenities.This villa is within walking distance of the beach, supermarket, restaurants and bars. If you don't want to hire a car for your stay, you have everything you need a short stroll away. Taxis and buses are easy to get if you are sightseeing or going to the airport.

Barbados and it’s people are beautiful
Wonderful location, quiet, peaceful and everything we were looking for on this trip. Beach club was a great addition.
Thank you for an amazing time.
Everyone that worked with the property were kind and courteous.
We had a great 2 weeks in this lovely villa. Perfect weather, location, with all the amenities you'll need and then some. The pool was great, especially for the kids, and everything is within walking distance. The Holetown beach, as always, is amazing and there's plenty to see and do. Would definitely stay here again!
A Villa worth looking at!
Katies villa was perfect for our family vacation, it was located in a quiet neighborhood, within walking distance of any amenities you could need: beach, shopping, grocery, restaurants, taxi service and health care facilities . Access to the beach club was ideal, and they served some of the best drinks during our stay in Barbados. The private pool at the villa was a definite plus, for the days when we didn't want the beach. The villa itself was comfortable and just the right size for our family. The property staff was welcoming and helpful with any questions we had at the beginning of our stay. If you're considering this villa, we would highly recommend staying here as it should meet your needs comfortably.
The house is ideally located and has all convenient features and an essential pool!!
We had a great holiday. Our expeditions by car allowed us to see all the wonderful natural and developed features - St Nicholas Abbey including the brand new Heritage Railway; Catch 22 at St Lucy; Hunte’s Gardens; Bathsheba & the Atlantic coastline; bathing at Accra beach at Worthing and a whole swathe of great restaurants.
The house provides a quiet and private environment for those who prefer to rest and reboot in an enchanting land of gentle and polite people who respond to courtesy due to them.
During our stay a pair of little yellow birds built their nest in the ironwork above the terrace - like ours, their choice of location was a great one!
Lovely spacious villa in a great location.
The villa is on Sunset Crest just a five minute walk to the beach, shops & beach club. Entrance to the Beach club is a bonus with its bar, swimming pool, sun beds & beach front location.
Wonderful being supplied with beach towels in the villa so you don’t have to bring your own. The Villa is spacious and supplied with almost everything you need. It comfortably accommodated our family of 5.
There is plenty of wildlife in the gardens, we saw around 20 green monkeys one day walking on by. Lizards and birds are around all day.
Any property issues were sorted within a day by Rachel the property manager who is helpful and always on hand. She organised car hire for us & booked our return taxi to the airport.
Barbados is quite expensive but a beautiful place, we visited in low season and it was quiet and mostly sunny.
Would highly recommend Sunset Crest as a base and to go on Calabaza boat cruise, Zaccios for pizza & sunset & try a jet ski or speed boat.
Lovely Villa in a great location
A lovely villa & garden in a quiet location but close enough to Holetown. A beach, restaurants, shops & the Beach Club all within a short walking distance.
The house pool is great for a cool down & we enjoyed watching the humming birds whilst sitting on the veranda.
Good prompt communication both with owner & housekeeper.
A perfect break.
If you are planning a beach or golf holiday in Barbados, 180 Biflora is ideal; only 5 minutes from the gorgeous West Coast sandy beach of Holetown. The villa is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the peaceful residential area of Sunset Crest on the Platinum west coast of Barbados. It’s a quiet location with easy access to some of the best restaurants, bars and beach all within a 5 minute walk.
You have the added benefit of a private pool at the villa and use of the Beach Club pool and facilities at the Holetown beach. You can sun bathe all day long on the villa’s pool deck or sit in the shade of the patio, read and watch the bird-life. You’ll find in Barbados there is never a rush to do anything.
The villa is maintained to a very high standard which we expect our guests to respect. We value our maid highly and she will ensure the villa is spotless for you. All the louvred windows can be opened in the day to allow the east to west breeze to cool the house and give that outdoors/indoors feel to the place.
Sunset Crest is a lovely leafy mature residential neighbourhood scattered with interesting tropical trees, after which the roads are named. A tropical garden surrounds the villa with mature mango, palms, and almond trees for shade. Humming birds are regular visitors to the garden.
It is an easy stroll to Holetown, where you can find a supermarket, lots of different restaurants and cafes, boutiques, deli, Cave Shepherd department store and duty free, banks, post office and Lime Grove cinemas. First street offers live night-time entertainment on Friday.
For sight-seeing further afield there is a taxi rank in Sunset Crest, or the local buses run every few minutes to Bridgetown and elsewhere. Bus stops are within a short stroll. Car hire can be arranged.
We have a Welcome Pack at the villa full of ideas for trips around the island, useful contacts for all sorts of activities and a list of local restaurants and menus is included.
