Overview

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

The highly desirable location enjoyed by Bluff House - mere steps away from the legendary Sandy Lane - has been perfectly complemented by the careful expansion and refurbishment of the luxury villa. Now significantly enlarged and exquisitely furnished throughout. Bluff House is in high demand amongst discerning individuals. The property's timeless asset of over an acre of mature tropical gardens has been enhanced by a substantially redesigned pool and garden area. By day, vivid tropical blooms delight the senses: by night, spectacular lighting creates an aura of romantic drama.
 
Within the villa itself, an impressive coral stone hallway leads onto elegant areas ideal for socializing or relaxing. A wonderfully stylish entertaining space has been newly created amongst lush tropical plans at the centre of the house. This innovative area flows directly onto the pool deck, affording glorious views through the palms to the sea beyond. In turn, the perfect place to unwind is provided in the form of a tastefully decorated sitting room equipped with TV, satellite, video and stereo facilities. Adjoining the sitting room is a formal indoor dining area, with a beautiful coral stone dining table as its centrepiece. For more informal dining, this room opens onto a covered verandah with a glorious views of the ground as a backdrop. Six stylishly decorated double air-conditioned bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom and telephone, provide ample accommodation for guests. The villa's magnificent master bedroom opens onto an expansive terrace, with views of the garden and the sea beyond, while the other bedrooms open directly onto the grounds.
 
No detail is overlooked for the comfort of guests, from the gated intercom entrance at the foot of the property's sweeping driveway, which ensures security and privacy, to the built-in sound system that provides music in all living areas.
 
Guests will find many sources of entertainment closest at hand. Direct access to the glorious Sandy Lane beach is easily obtained through the property's own private path, and sun loungers are provided on the beach for the comfort of guests. Sandy Lane's legendary 18-hole course represents the perfect challenge for golfers.
 
Ideally situated and beautifully appointed, Bluff House is indeed the perfect holiday choice and the capacity can be extended to 14-guests as a cottage can be found within the grounds of this villa.

Barbados is a truly phenomenal holiday destination, and geologically unique; a coral island, initially pushed from the sea as two separate land masses by volcanic activity many years ago. Over time these two land masses merged together creating the isle we now know as Barbados. Barbados lies on the boundary of the Caribbean and South American continental plates making it unlike any other Caribbean Island. Within the core of the island, made up mainly of coral sediment, numerous caves and underground lakes can be found. Arguably the most famous of these is Harrison’s Cave; a network of caves, waterfalls, pools and fantastic stalagmites and stalactites.

Inland Barbados is delightful to explore, enchantingly quiet and rural, there are endless fields of sugar cane dotted with old plantation houses. Barbados has a rich and interesting history and has preserved and restored many of its historic buildings – you can visit a plantation house for a trip back in time, see the towering lighthouses that once led ships to safety, or explore the historic towns that are an important part of the island’s past and present.

Whilst on Barbados, a taste of the island’s rum is a must! The isle has been producing rum for over 350 years, and it is recognised internationally for its quality. Many tours and taste sessions are available at the local distilleries.

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!

Reviews

  • An excellent standard

    Posted by Paul on 14/08/2016

    Our family stayed at Bluff House for two weeks in August with four adults and seven teenagers. The house sits off the main road which is a 10m walk into Holetown or a bus stop is just outside the property on the main road, taxis are easily accessible also. The Pool is large enough for a morning swim or access to the beach is down a private path around 300m long, which will take you to probably the best stretch of beach on Sandy Lane, if not the West Coast !! The head of house was a very nice lady called Patsy, who managed the house to a very high standard, catered for our every need and was able to keep sustain a level of discretion to make all the guests feel very comfortable. Patsy would shop daily for anything that we requested, leaving the wife's to a fully relaxing holiday and made rum punch to die for !! Norma and Margaret would provide three meals a day (if required) to an excellent standard and treated us to many bajan dishes which were a delight ! Whilst Lecia, Julia, Henderson and David all contributed in their own special way with the housekeeping, laundry, gardens and security. We are sure that you will not be disappointed with Bluff House and its staff and can only hope that you have as much as a fabulous stay as we had. Thank you to everyone !!

  • A fabulous holiday

    Posted by Davidson Family on 13/08/2016

    We would just like to thank you and all the wonderful staff at Bluff House for making our holiday so special. Patsy has done a fantastic job of managing the house and providing for our every need and was still able to provide the privacy that we all appreciated when required. Norma was at the top of her game and every meal was a delight with Margaret, Lecia, Julia, Henderson and David all contributing in their own special way to provide a first class service without too much intrusion. We hope that we can visit again in the not too distant future and would appreciate if you could pass on our gratitude to all the staff for a fabulous holiday.

  • Beyond what we expected

    Posted by McCarthy Family on 26/03/2014

    Wonderful family trip! The Bluff House staff went above and beyond to make our trip special. Our sunset sail tonight with Silver Moon was the perfect way to end our trip. Thank you.
