Villa Lancaster is located in Saint James, a Parish well-known for being frequently by the world’s rich and famous. Now referred to as the Platinum Coast, the area is famed for its lavish mansions and hotels, and glistening beaches. The area is renowned for its glitz and glamour but provides a magnificent place to experience Barbados’ natural beauty including a population of green monkeys and sea turtles.

Nearby lies Discovery Bay Hotel, a hotel consisting of quaint plantation-style houses and landscaped gardens, as well as a pool, the Sugarbird Bar and Grill and a beach. The hotel also has in-house entertainment on various nights each week. Whilst visiting the resort’s beach, visitors will be able to partake in paddle boarding, croquet & shuffle boarding, water-skiing and scuba-diving. The beach’s water is ideal for swimming due to its calm waters and the velvety-soft sand is wonderful for a peaceful walk in nature.

Embarking on a 9-minute drive, you’ll discover St. Francis of Assisi in Mount Standfast. It is one of only seven Roman Catholic Churches on the whole island. The welcoming church is the best place to partake in Sunday Mass on the West Coast, with its large windows looking out onto the peaceful ocean. The church has previously been visited by former English Prime Minister Tony Blair with his family and the late jazz singer Frank Sinatra.

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!

    Luxurious private villa & accommodating House staff. Each room has a unique theme with details down to the switch plates! Nice amenities, Gym, pool, guest house, hot tub & more great view of ocean & mountains in a very chic area. Close to shopping, clubs, beach & more but you may not want to leave!

  • Great place to stay overall!

    Posted by Ieachea on 12/10/2017

    I along with 12 other people stayed here for our 40th birthday celebration and had a ball. The staff was great. Kemar was the greatest. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. The grounds were lovely. We had enough room to be without seeming like we were on top of each other constantly. While here we had hired chef services. For the amount of people that stayed we didn’t have enough food to last through our stay. We had to have the chef shop again. The WiFi sucked. Only great when you were in the tv room or main room. Even though it was their rainy season we still had ample time in the pool. Watch out for the couch in the Tv room. Everyone I mean everyone fell asleep without knowing. Those couches were so comfortable. Great place to stay overall!
