Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Hot Tub Walk to Beach All Bedrooms En-Suite

Fosters House is a luxurious holiday home in the Lower Carlton area of St James that couldn’t be any closer to the beach. There are stunning sea views from almost every room, with direct access to the beach from the idyllic outside space.

This is truly a place where you can escape from it all, with a peaceful and relaxed vibe that flows throughout the beautifully furnished rooms. The numerous balconies and living spaces that bring the outside in mean you can enjoy the gentle Caribbean breeze as it whispers through every room.

On the main floor is the spacious living area with several doors leading directly to the outside space. A couple of comfortable sofas sit around a classic wood coffee table, making it the perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Sitting behind this area is a large dining table with seating for up to 10 people. Under the partially-covered terrace is another table for enjoying al fresco meals as you soak up unspoilt views of the azure sea. There’s also a range of loungers for reclining in style and comfort. The fitted kitchen is well equipped and features an island with table and chairs for grabbing a quick breakfast before you head out for the day. A convenient extra is the full family bathroom, which is ideal for when you’re popping in and out of the garden.

To the first floor are four bedrooms. Each benefits from air conditioning, a balcony and a luxurious ensuite bathroom. The master bedroom features a beautiful, king size, four-poster bed and elegant antique furniture. Two other bedrooms have twin beds that can be made into a king size bed, with the fourth bedroom having a queen size bed.

The outside space is perfectly designed to make the most of the sea views. Further on from the dining terrace is the main terrace. Here there’s a large, private swimming pool and a selection of sun loungers and even more seating areas. Surrounding the terrace are gardens with exotic plants and even an outdoor shower for cooling off. By the shower is where you’ll find the gate that leads straight out onto the beach.

Fosters House is ideally situated for easy access to a range of shops and other amenities. Heading out for evening meals and drinks couldn’t be easier and you’ll find a great choice nearby. Even closer, of course, is an immaculate beach. Just a few steps away from your garden is the beach, with its white sand, palm trees and crystal clear water. Make a picnic and enjoy a day out on this practically private beach. Alternatively, head down as evening falls and watch incredible sunsets over the sea.

One of the busiest ports in Barbados, Speightstown, is less than a 10-minute drive away. There are even more stretches of sand to enjoy here, if you haven’t quite had your fill from your own! Colonial buildings are dotted everywhere, with one of the most beautiful being Arlington House Museum. The Gallery of Caribbean Art is worth a look around too, with lots of work from local Barbadian artists on show.

There are plenty of fascinating places for day trips in the area. One of the most popular is Animal Flower Cave in the St Lucy parish right at the northern tip of the island. It’s around a 30-minute drive from Fosters House, with the chance to take in some beautiful scenery along the way. This ocean cave is made up of natural rock pools and a coral floor, with sea anemones dotted everywhere. It’s the island’s only accessible sea cave, so make sure you don’t miss out on visiting this naturally beautiful attraction and an unforgettable experience.

About the Island & Getting There

About Barbados

At first glance you could be mistaken for thinking that Barbados is purely a beach holiday destination, but you're urged to reconsider this common belief. The island of Barbados is peppered with astonishing landscapes (both coastal and inland), enchanting locals, sublime cuisine, intriguing rums, fascinating wildlife, symbolic architecture and a selection of striking holiday villas.

Delve deep into the history of the island and start your holiday by visiting Sunbury Plantation House & Museum. This former plantation was built in 1660's and the premises are scattered with antiquities that delicately detail a recent history of Barbados. St. Nicholas Abbey also provides an insightful representation of Sugarcane production, Bajan artefacts and a wonderful observation point at Cherry Tree Hill. If you’re keen to visit one of the oldest Parliamentary buildings within the Commonwealth and appreciate the democratic legacy of Barbados, drop by The Parliament Buildings. This neo-gothic congress can be found in Bridgetown and act as a representation of Barbados’s Independence. There is so much history present throughout the island and as a result, Bridgetown and its Garrison has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, which the locals are very proud of.

Great efforts have been made to persevere the natural beauty of Barbados, so if you’re drawn to the exploration of National Parks and multicoloured gardens, it won’t take you long to realise that Barbados is a haven for such paradises! Within the Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Farley Hill National Park, Flower Forest, Hunte's Gardens and Welchman Hall Gully - visitors, and Botanist alike, will be lost for hours admiring these astonishing botanical parklands. Keep an eye out for the Dwarf Poinciana, or Peacock Flower…it’s the national flower of Barbados.

Bajan’s take their food very seriously! If you and your fellow travellers are enticed by the gastronomic aspect of holidaying, we believe you’ve selected the right island. With every aspect of cookery mastered; from pickling to freshly prepared dishes, sweet & savoury, fragrant & spicy and of course, the bountiful choice of seafood. Check out the food stalls in Paynes Bay Church – where vendors exhibit locally made dishes & street food that will scintillate the taste buds. At the end of every working week, locals and tourists both flock to Oistins, for 'Fish Fry Day'. This is a must for those who haven’t undergone the experience! The evening starts with barbecues and then ascends into a joyful party. This caps off a busy few days of work for locals as well as the 'strains' associated with serious holidaying.

Barbados is of course iconic for its Beaches & Rum…so why not bring them together? You will have to go out of your way not to be able to find a beach bar along the west coast of the island, as well as the countless Rum Shops. Yes, you’ve read correctly, Rum Shops! These small and locally run businesses embrace the Bajan spice of life, in liquid form. Very delicious! If you’re searching for something a little more special, take a trip to the east coast and visit Sand Dunes Bar and Restaurant at Windy Hill, for an unforgettable experience.

Barbados is a distinct and striking part of the Caribbean. It’s a great fit for all types of travellers, as the island really does have it all. For a little more information about this delightful island, check out our guide to a remarkable stay!

  • Location & Beauty

    Posted by Etchum Family on 11/02/2018

    The location and beauty of this home is amazing but it is really the staff that made our holiday. Three fantastic meals a day looking out to the ocean cannot be beat! We will be back some day!

  • I cannot recommend this villa enough

    Posted by Sue on 02/09/2017

    We stayed at Fosters House is August as a family with grown girls and their boyfriends. We had a fabulous time, perfect location, beautiful secluded beach at the bottom of the garden. Few minutes drive from bars and restaurants. The staff were absolutely incredible. Claire, the housekeeper anticipates your every wish and more. Chef was superb, we really enjoyed sampling local carribean cuisine so beautifully prepared for us. Katherine and Anthea, kept the place spotlessly clean and tidy and laundered every item as soon as we removed them. For the first time ever I returned with a suitcase full of clean clothes. All this done with a smile and lovely sense of humour. I cannot recommend this villa enough, although I would like to keep it a secret just for us !!!
