Holiday Rental House
The Great House accommodates 16 guests – eight in the main house and eight in the four chattel houses. However, an additional four guests may be accommodated for an additional fee. Consider this a warning: once you’ve stepped foot into this gated property in Turtle Beach, you might not want to leave. Offering a vast amount of amenities, lush gardens and plenty of space, this is one of our best villas in Barbados for a large group traveling together. Barbados offers a perfect Caribbean getaway thanks to its tranquil waters, vibrant nightlife options and warm climate.

One of the most exciting aspects of staying in this home is that you’ll have access to its 30-foot pleasure boat, manned by the villa’s boatman this vessel is available during the day to guests for just the price of fuel. It can be used for waterskiing or wakeboarding or to travel to a neighboring beach. Other amenities include kayaks, a laser sailboat and snorkel gear, though the backyard’s centerpiece is its large, heated pool, complete with a deck outfitted with cushioned lounge chairs. There are plenty more places to lounge with a drink in hand on a sofa or chair on one of the villa’s wrap-around covered terraces. Inside, the airy entrance hall boasts an elegant winding staircase, from here, head towards one of the several reception rooms and sitting areas offering plush sofas in muted colors with lots of throw pillows and access to the terrace (there’s also a piano room if you’re musically inclined). The fully equipped kitchen offers a range of appliances that range from a tabletop grill to a blender for afternoon cocktails, but let the on-site kitchen staff handle things. This home can host up to 16 people in its eight bedrooms, as well as an extra four upon request. Four rooms are found in the main home while the remaining suites are located in separate chattel houses. All rooms include Ralph Lauren linens, air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. You’ll be just steps away from snorkeling and swimming in Mullins Beach, and a five-minute drive to the nearby gym and tennis courts. Meanwhile, it’s a quick 10-minute walk to the restaurants, sites and shops in historic Speightstown. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.
