Wow Factor
Modern Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach

With delightful accommodation set over a single storey and sitting within an acre of private gardens, Villa Anchor is a beautiful place to call home during your holiday to this beautiful part of Barbados. It’s part of the exclusive Sandy Lane Estate on the island’s western coast, meaning you have access to the Sandy Lane Beach Club and all its facilities and amenities.

Villa Anchor offers bright, modern spaces to enjoy both socialising and relaxing. The naturally beautiful surroundings are invited inside by the numerous doors and windows, creating a light and airy feel throughout.

The vaulted living room is the perfect place to appreciate just what an idyllic spot Villa Anchor occupies, with louvre shutters providing direct access to outside spaces. The large room features enough seating for everyone to get together and chat over drinks, before moving over to the stunning marble dining table, when dinner is ready to be served. You can also relax whilst keeping connected to the outside world in the adjacent television/office room. Here you’ll find a variety of channels to enjoy on the flat screen television and a fax/printer and broadband within the office area. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with everything you need to make and cook meals, but there’s also a housekeeper/cook on hand six days a week to prepare breakfasts and light lunches, with other meals available by arrangement.

There are three beautiful bedrooms at Villa Anchor, with all benefiting from air conditioning. The master bedroom is very spacious and features a king size bed and an ensuite bathroom with shower. The second and third bedrooms have twin beds each, which can be zipped together to create king size beds. The third bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with shower and bathtub. There’s also a lovely family bathroom with shower and bathtub for all guests to use.

Directly accessed via the living room, the covered patio features a dining area for enjoying al fresco meals and a more casual space with outdoor seating. Wherever you sit, the views of the lush gardens that surround Villa Anchor are just lovely. There’s a diverse range of tropical plants and trees to spot as you stroll around the large plot and appreciate the work done by your dedicated gardener. The main highlight is the private swimming pool, which is surrounded by a selection of loungers for soaking up both the sun and the peaceful atmosphere.

The villa is located on the Sandy Lane estate and includes beach access at the designated area for villa owners. The facility includes chaise lounges, umbrellas, snack bar, washrooms, showers, and some villas have a dedicated cabana. The beach is located on the left of the Sandy Lane Hotel Beach. Please note villa guests do not have use of the Sandy Lane hotel facilities but can make reservations for the restaurants and the golf course at the hotel, additional charges will apply.

Being part of the Sandy Lane Estate means that the beach and exclusive club facilities are just minutes away. Here you have use of your own cabana with a fridge and several loungers and chairs available. The onsite bar offers a range of drinks, snacks and lunches, so you can really make a day of it by the sea. The famous Sandy Lane Hotel is also adjacent to the beach. Sandy Lane Beach features a long stretch of golden sand, which is lapped by mostly calm waters that are ideal for swimming.

A great choice of restaurants and shops are within easy reach too, as well as a couple of golf courses for those keen players. When you want to explore a little further afield, there are plenty of charming places to visit that are just a short drive away.

Holetown is only 5 minutes away by car and has plenty to offer by day as well as by night. Stroll along the boardwalk to soak up the stunning scenes across the beach and sea, and then enjoy a beachfront dinner at one of the many restaurants. There are many bars and restaurants further inland also, guaranteeing fun and atmospheric evenings.

Less than 15 minutes away by car is Speightstown, which is one of the biggest towns and busiest ports in the whole of Barbados. There are several beaches to enjoy here, but also lots of interesting historical sites to explore and admire. These include beautiful buildings dating back to colonial times, such as the Arlington House Museum. You’ll really get a feel for the town’s vibe during weekends, when you’ll get to mingle with locals as they come out to shop and socialise.

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!
