About the neighborhood
Located on the west coast of Barbados in the parish of St James. Its a 2 min walk to the beach by private beach access. Its 1 mile north of Holetown which has great shops, restaurants and bars. Golf, tennis, water sports and many more activities are all close by.

The location is great for everything from long walks on the beach, visiting friends in hotels nearby such as the Colony Club, Coral Reef Club, Glitter bay and Royal Pavilion plus a few more luxury hotels nearby.

Water sports are all close by and we can even arrange a Catamaran cruise just for you and they will even pick you up off the beach ( Weather permitting).
Getting around
Our recommendation is to get a rental car as there may be lots of places you will want to visit and shops to stock up on supplies. There are also lots of friendly taxi drivers who will collect you, take you on Island tours or to restaurants as needed. There is also a public bus that runs up and down the west coast that can be picked up close by for a more local experience.
Car advised
How to get there
Barbados is easy to get to with numerous international flights coming in from major gateways in the USA , UK and Canada as well as other Caribbean Islands. We have an international standard airport and jet centre for private jets.
On arrival there are fast track services, private transfers, taxis and car rental offices to make getting to anywhere easily. Getting to the west coast of the Island takes about 40 mins by car. Bridgetown is the Capital towards the southerly end of the Island and Holetown is the heart of the west coast. There are lovely restaurants, bars and shops dotted all along the west coast as well as golf courses and water sports options. Once here you may never want to leave!
