High Cane is a glamorous pad, finessed with unapologetic lavish style, plush and flamboyant, this is a home with-a-difference - brimming with flair and charisma, nestled on the exclusive “platinum coast” of Barbados.

Perched on the second ridge of the exclusive Sandy Lane Estate - High Cane is a haven of classic colonial style and proportions along with exquisite decorative style and impeccable quality. The majestic exterior offers a dazzling white plantation style home with beautiful porticoed verandas and decorative balustrades. Indoor and outdoor living blend seamlessly; the dining veranda is executed with both grace and panache, sub divided into chic nook for an afternoon tea in the Bajan tradition, outdoor lounge, bar and gazebo, overlooking tropical gardens.

Aesthetes and interiors enthusiasts will be in heaven, the inspiring and eclectic range of this home departs from anything generic - guests will enter the spirit of ornate indulgence. Architectural features include gracious proportions, encircling verandahs and balconies, wood jalousie shutters and marble and coral stone accents, finished with a twist of British verve.

The dining room has a charming formality to it; with a regal feel, solid timber floors and table are finished with dusty gold silk curtains and salmon and gold upholstered chairs, whilst a glittering chandelier, Persian rug and lattice work frame mirror simply add to the distinguished air of this space. In contrast, wandering out into the gardens via the floor-to-ceiling opening, framed with ruche silk, the expansive gardens have an Asian tone, with open lawns, lounge-style wicker banquettes and koi pond for an air of spiritual tranquility.

Full of surprises and playful twists, this charismatic home contrasts in a moment from refined, formal drawing room finessed with antiques, artefacts and sedate seating to an über modern lounge offering pillar box red leather and chrome, along with cutting-edge art and a hint of retro-chic. From glittering chandelier to abstract art, porcelain lamps and gilded candelabras to state-of-the-art gym. With several reception spaces, the group can spread out, moving from the television room with breezy aquamarine and turquoise accents, to the pretty pool-side gazebo.
 
Five bedrooms are set across the ground floor, first floor and adjoining cottage - each of these has a marble en-suite, air-conditioning and ceiling fan. Finished with timeless grace, whether it be the nautical-toned aqua candy stripes or earthy serenity of soft greys and fawns, these sedate bedrooms offer peerless rejuvenation away from the bustle of the crowds. With free-standing marble baths and walk-in wet rooms, contemporary comfort blends with traditional elegance at High Cane.

A sophisticated home, High Cane is exquisitely executed for entertaining, from rocking pool parties through to family get-togethers, this is a luxuriant space with no detail left under thought, set within majestic seclusion just moments from the hot-spots of the west coast.

High Cane is nestled in a premium position in the very exclusive West Coast of Barbados, also known as the “platinum coast” for its pristine beaches and turquoise waters.

Affectionately know as “little England," Barbados offers a unique combination of British tradition and Caribbean flair, creating an irresistible atmosphere of local traditions and well-heeled luxury. Watch a game of cricket (the island's national sport), sip afternoon tea on your private patio overlooking the sea, frolic in crystal-clear turquoise water, and help yourself to the island's world-famous rum.

The Sandy Lane Hotel is an iconic spot drawing a star-studded clientele, whilst Sandy Lane Beach in St James is one of the region’s finest beaches. Ideal for swimming, and snorkelling, tropical sea life and sea turtles can be spotted, whilst opportunities for kayaking and paddle boarding are abundant.

High Cane is ideally positioned, offering both tranquil seclusion as well as being within walking distance to the prestigious Sandy Lane Golf Course and the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre which comprises upscale boutiques, spas and fine dining.

In contrast, a visit to the historical Holetown will offer a taste of local flavour. The Chattel village has a more artisanal flavour, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses offer a striking contrast to the colonial residences with their dazzling white coral facades and open verandas; the former are vividly coloured with fancy gables and gingerbread fretwork. The Chattel houses date back to plantation days; the small wooden shacks were designed to be movable, yet this didn’t limit their decorative charm; finished in candy pinks and pistachio greens with pretty shutters and sloping roofs.

Within close proximity to High Cane, visitors can enjoy the fine culinary art at Tides Restaurant for something a little special, or Zaccios for informal pizza lunches with the kids. The west coast offers everything from rum cocktails at the bar to Thai cuisine or local Bajan fare. A culinary experience here takes influences from African, Caribbean, West Indian and European gastronomy for something a little unique. Known for its rum tradition, started circa 370 years ago, the island is brimming with tours of the world’s oldest rum.

Barbados is a place of contrasts, from movie-star hedonism to cane-cutting village life and artisanal fare; from fishing villages to dramatic, rugged Atlantic coastlines - visitors will enjoy a vivacious diversity within a very accessibly-sized island. A unique blend of vibrant, local life and colonial-influenced afternoon teas alongside cricket matches on the green!

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!
