Overview

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

Heronetta is a uniquely grand home which sits as one of the very few beachfront properties on the Sandy Lane Beach. Not only is this luxurious home one of the largest properties on the island's much sought after West Coast, but it’s also the largest beach property on the prestigious Sandy Lane Beach. The stately home presides over four prime acres of land with 110 yards of beach frontage. The residence provides very spacious living and boasts exceptional finishes. Heronetta is also capable of hosting celebrations of up to 30 guests, so let the festivities begin!

Heronetta consists of five double air-conditioned bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom facilities. Two of the bedrooms are in the main house and the other three bedrooms can be found in the beautifully decorated cottages, which are just around the corner from the main house. The extensively landscaped English style gardens are very lovingly and well maintained.

There is a very large swimming pool in the garden and a delightful gazebo dining area. On-site you will also find a tennis court with lights for night tennis, just in case anyone wants to work up a late evening sweat! An added feature of this unique property is its own private Cabana on Sandy Lane Beach, so please feel free to enquire for further details.

The villa is within a five-minute drive to the Sandy Lane Golf courses, which also have a host of additional facilities and service.

When visiting Barbados, the first thing you are sure to notice are the gorgeous and renowned flat white sand beaches. On the west coast of Barbados, miles of coral shore beaches and fine white sands stretch along a hypnotising turquoise sea.

The West Coast of Barbados is also fringed with countless breath-taking Coral Reefs to provide excellent snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities. The South Coast also offers something for everyone, and is a curious mixture of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Here you can swim in calm waters, snorkel over the inshore reefs and tidal pools, and at the southernmost tip of the island, you can windsurf. The East Coast of Barbados has fantastic and lively surfing opportunities, blown briskly by the strong and constant trade winds; the constant breeze of these trade winds give Barbados its mild and pleasant tropical climate.

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.

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!

Prior to Booking

Please be aware that Barbados is an island nation that experiences weather patterns dictated by the Atlantic Ocean to the north of the island and the Caribbean Sea to the south of the island. This tropical rainforest climate results in the island experiencing a hurricane season, which usually occurs between June to November. When thinking about booking your holiday to Barbados Republic, please consult Foreign travel advice for more information.

In Holetown, there’s more entertainment with a multi-screen cinema and often live music at venues around town. They will also love the easy-going dining at the beachfront restaurants and shopping (or window-shopping) at malls like Limegrove and Chattel. And because Barbados is best enjoyed on the water as well as the land, a turtle-spotting trip in one of Holetown’s glass-bottomed boats is bound to be a hit too.

Nature-loving kids will be spoilt for choice on this beautiful island – there are tropical gardens galore, and the Barbados Wildlife Reserve is a great place to see a wide range of species in their natural surroundings. Monkeys, birds, lizards, deer and many more are free to do as they please there. If monkeys are their thing, there’s more of them at Welchman Hall Gully.

  • Highly recommended

    Posted by Leigh Family on 08/06/2018

    I would highly recommend this beautiful home! It is in the middle of four acres of lush gardens and has a huge swimming pool. The five bedrooms with in-suite baths are perfect for a large group!! The house was wonderful but the best thing about it was the amazing STAFF!! They were wonderful and always eager to help.....their cooking was delicious!! We went with a total of five couples and everyone had a great time!!

  • Enjoyable and tasty

    Posted by David & Clark on 28/03/2018

    What a truly fantastic week we have had, it was made even more special by the wonderful ladies at the house. This fantastic group of people mixed with this beautiful place was above what we expected. Make sure to enjoy Yvonne's rum punch when you come and sherelle's flying fish (and pudding and souse!).

  • Second visit here
