Occupying an idyllic beachfront location on the coast between Sandy Lane and Sunset Crest, Villa Sand Dollar is luxurious and incredibly spacious holiday home set within extensive tropical gardens.

It’s hard to tell where the inside accommodation stops and the outside begins at Villa Sand Dollar. The villa has been beautifully designed to make the most of its stunning surroundings, with huge windows, balconies and terraces connecting the interior and exterior. Through the décor and furnishings, there’s an inviting sense of palatial grandeur and traditional Caribbean style.

Enter through an impressive courtyard that’s dotted with exotic trees and plants for the perfect introduction to your secluded slice of paradise. The main living room is to be found under a partially-covered terrace, complete with impressive pillars. There’s more than enough comfortable seating for everyone to get together and enjoy this wonderful space, which is ideal for casual drinks before dinner. Meals can be enjoyed at the dining table on the main terrace, with there also being a barbecue at your disposal. For times of quieter relaxation, there’s a study/reading room with direct outside access. The kitchen is a very generous size and has everything you need to prepare and cook meals, should you want to give cook the night off!

There are four air-conditioned bedrooms in total, with all being very large in size and each having an ensuite bathroom. The Master bedroom is on the first floor and offers a King size bed and stunning sea views from its balcony and private terrace with a selection of seats and loungers. There’s another bedroom with a King size bed, with the third and fourth bedrooms having a Queen size bed and two beds/King size bed respectively.

As well as having several dining and relaxing areas located around the terraces, Villa Sand Dollar also features plenty more further into its grounds. Particularly charming is the gazebo set within the lawned, tropical gardens. It sits right on the edge of the garden, giving unspoilt views of the ocean. It’s home to a small dining table with chairs, providing the perfect place for breakfasts with a view. The main terrace is where the large, private pool can be found. Several sun loungers sit close by, so you can soak up the peaceful atmosphere that surrounds your villa.

Villa Sand Dollar enjoys an ideal setting along the coast between the exclusive communities of Sandy Lane and Sunset Crest. It’s an incredibly, safe, secure and family-friendly place to enjoy a holiday to this beautiful part of Barbados. Plenty of amenities, including shops, supermarkets and restaurants are all within a 5 to 10-minute drive.

As the beach is literally on your doorstep, getting out to enjoy days out by the sea couldn’t be easier or more convenient. Paynes Bay Beach is one of the most stretches of golden sand on this area of the coast. It’s less than a 5-minute drive away from the villa, so why not make up a picnic and spend the whole afternoon enjoying the soft sand and calm waters of this idyllic spot. The children will love swimming and snorkelling as you relax on a hired sun lounger and soak up the peace and laidback atmosphere. There’s a beachfront café offering a good choice of drinks and snacks, with more options just across the road.

The nearest main town is Holetown, which is around a 5-minute drive from the villa. The beach here is slightly livelier and features a long boardwalk that’s ideal for rubbing shoulders with locals. As well as having numerous restaurants, Holetown is also ideal for indulging in some retail therapy, with its many up-market shops. Folkestone Marine Park and Visitor Centre is a great place to take the children for snorkelling and getting up close to lots of tropical fish. There are also some lawned areas near the beach where you can bring and enjoy a picnic lunch.

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!
