There is a newly built large wooden deck outside suitable for dining, sunbathing and practicing yoga. It is situated in a spacious, private 3 acre development in St Martins, St Philip, Barbados on the South East of the island. It was designed and built by a leading Barbadian architect Michael Lashley along with 3 other houses on the site and his Architect's office. There is a communal pond and trees and plenty of space to reflect and relax away from the hustle and bustle of the world. Zion house has a very simple homely feel about it and is very quiet and tranquil. Although the immediate environment around the house is quiet and spacious the house is within 5 minutes walking distance to a supermarket, Rum shop (Bajan pub) convenience store. Our closest beach is Foul Bay at 5 mins drive or 20 minute walk. This is quiet beautiful, white sands beach perfect for sunbathing. Also suitable for swimming for fairly confident swimmers and brilliant if you like bodyboarding. Crane Beach and the Crane Resort is a short bus, cycle or drive away. The beach has been rated as one of 10 best beaches in the world. If you are a non swimmer or want a busier time at the beach we suggest Miami Beach at Oistins. This is a lifeguarded beach and has still calm crystal clear blue Caribbean waters that Barbados is famed for which you can reach by bus or car in about 20 minutes. Zion House is in a semi rural residential location which is very Barbadian (Bajan) with very few tourists. So when you are walking about you will find yourself living and experiencing authentic Barbadian life. We aim for Zion to be: A place to create joy, happy memories and laughter A home retreat which is warm, cool and full of love A place for creativity and art A place for yoga and meditation A space to start afresh An open, safe, secure home A great place for young and old kids A space for growing food and living with nature A simple, light, bright environment - spacious and clutter free An evolving project We offer the house and the basement space to let for holidays and organised retreatsMore
