Welcome to your own private paradise. At the edge of Turtle Beach on Barbados’s beautiful west coast, there’s a luxury villa that will knock your socks off (then pair them for you very neatly, give you a foot massage and ask how you’d like your Martini).
Turtle Beach House is truly nothing short of fantastic. A simply stunning property, decked out in East Coast style, with clapper boarding, whitewashed walls and floors, coastal hues and real seaside atmosphere – all with a hint of tropical Caribbean good looks.
The luxe bedrooms are breezy and cool and full of lots of little luxuries to make bedtime a pleasure. Four of the bedrooms are contained within ‘chattel’ houses, making them ideal for large groups so that everyone has their own space to retreat to sometimes.
The communal areas of the house are very impressive, with a stone staircase sweeping up from the hallway. Elsewhere there is a long, elegant dining room for long, elegant dinners. There’s even a drawing room, with piano, sofas and botanical prints on the wall, as well as the main living room.
And there’s plenty to impress you outside, too. There’s a real emphasis on poolside living here. As well as the main pool with built in Jacuzzi, there’s a shallow children’s pool. Nearby, you’ll find a pool bar, outdoor living room and lots of loungers with wonderful views. Beyond the pool, there’s an acre and a half of lush, tropical gardens to discover, with shady coconut trees, fragrant climbers and lily-filled fishponds. Much of the fruit and herbs for the kitchen start life here, making meals as locally grown as you can get!
Beyond the garden is the beach, just 200 metres from the villa itself. The sands are impossibly white, the turquoise waters safe for swimming. It’s an idyllic stretch of coastline and one you can enjoy in style from the private sundeck set just above it, where the staff serve some of your meals.
A raft of hardworking staff are always on hand to take care of everything for you. Whether your priority is to sip cocktails under the stars on a deck overlooking the sea, tuck into a picnic on the private boat in the middle of the Caribbean, or sink into a massage table in your own luxury room, with views of the waves, your wish is their command.
