Summer House is a delightful home offering timeless elegance and traditional plantation style features, set across two storeys within the well-heeled and prestigious Sugar Hill Resort on the glittering West Coast. Nestled among charmingly natural gardens offering a riot of tropical foliage, colour and the sounds of the ocean beyond, guests will enjoy the best of both worlds; a self-contained family home with its own outdoor spaces along with the world-class service level and facilities of the wider resort, and staff presence for a little additional pampering.

Entering this vivacious home, guests will immediately feel at ease; the interiors blend quintessential Bajan influences, European finesse, and sea-side charm. Handsome proportions in the hallmark whitewash are offset by distinctive bottle green arched jalousie windows with something of an Art Deco feel. The indoor area fuses naturally with the outdoor spaces. There’s a chic balcony for dining al fresco with views of the canopy of tropical trees spreading to the coast. Guests will feel as if they are dining on top of the jungle! There is also a sedate-covered veranda, perfect for a refined afternoon tea in the local Bajan-British tradition.

Open plan living is stylishly executed, yet breezy and finished with a lightness of touch; comfortable sofas and all the contemporary entertainment options make for “downtime” whilst a dazzling white dining area is finessed with indoor plants, vivacious artwork, and accents of crimson across the soft furnishings. The outdoors offers a pool-side terrace, complete with loungers, a wicker lounge set - ideal for a rum cocktail or two in the evening and elegant parasols for reclining with a good book in the shade and cooling air of the trade winds. A simple yet well-equipped kitchen offers an American fridge and top-range appliances, although guests have restaurants on site and the option of chef services.

Summer House has four bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, each offering serenity and tranquillity within an understated style, fresh whites and crisp cotton, accented with pretty splashes of colour like fuchsia and dusty pink or soft golds. Ornate hand-carved four-poster beds, dressing tables, or silk lampshades and antique chaise longue add a real tone and colonial flair. Three of the bedrooms are in the main house, and there’s a fourth bedroom in a separate cottage in the garden.

Summer House is an effortless choice, a true home-from-home, offering a vibrant space characterised by understated luxury and natural charm; every comfort has been considered, within the spirit of Caribbean ease and with a nod to the local traditions, whilst five-star comforts and amenities are on its very doorstep.

Summer House is set on the exclusive “platinum coast,” the glittering West coast of Barbados which is known for its exclusive developments, fine sandy beaches with turquoise waters and colourful, historical towns.

This sumptuous property is located in the Sugar Hill Resort Community where guests have access to a Clubhouse, acclaimed restaurant, two swimming pools, and four championship tennis courts. Tennis stars such as Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki have played on these courts! The beach facility, Fairmont Royal Pavilion, is only a five-minute drive away, whilst the world-class Royal Westmoreland Golf Course is only 1.1 kilometres distance. This is one of the most prestigious corners of the exclusive west coast, whilst being a short distance to local life, trade and traditions.

Speightstown and Holetown, both a few kilometres distance, both offer abundant local flavour.

Holetown demonstrates a vibrant slice of local Bajan life as well as duty-free shopping. The Chattel village is a melting pot of artisans, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses provide 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.

Speightstown is also known as “little Bristol” - this town offers evocative local life, fisherman casting their catch on the jetty, a distinctly nautical feel along with street vendors and eclectic dining options.

The island’s capital, Bridgetown is known for its British colonial architecture and historical sites blending with colourful shopping, an abundance of sea-based activities and UNESCO world heritage status.

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!

Summer House offers a sumptuous, safe and secure and well-serviced environment for families with children. The magical gardens offer a fairy-tale style experience, along with a glistening pool for hours of splashy fun and world-class amenities at the Sugar Hill resort complex. With twenty-four hour security and on-hand staff, parents will enjoy a break too.

Barbados offers so much for family travellers. At only 21 miles by 14 miles, with 60 miles of pristine coastline, days at the beach as a family are the centre of a Bajan holiday.

From intriguing caves to mystical gardens, from vibrant street-fare to formal polo matches - genteel cricket matches and colourful street crafts, Barbados offers a unique experience for youngsters which will captivate small imaginations for years to come.

Sugar Hill, on the west coast, offers proximity to some of the most child-friendly beaches. Mullins Beach is a good option for kids with tranquil seas and long sandy stretches for sand-castle building whilst adults will enjoy rum punch from their rented parasols or older kids will indulge in water sports. Folkestone Marine and Visitor Centre in Holetown offers a fantastic museum and beginners snorkelling.

Harrison’s Cave offers a journey beneath the limestone surface that makes up much of the island - a mysterious 30 minute underground guided train trip taking in crystallised formations, intricate streams and awe-inspiring caverns. From collecting shells at the luscious Bathsheba Park, to a unique dining expense for the island’s traditional Friday night live music and fresh-off-the-docks flying fish, Barbados offers a vibrant, sensory experience for children.

Barbados offers a mystical experience for youngsters; one of the island’s traditions of swimming horses at dawn will leave exquisite memories for kids to cherish, and wildlife from tortoises to parrots to brocket deer will intrigue youngsters.

For older kids, Bridgetown offers several tours of intriguing shipwrecks, tropical fish and coral formations. Or, a combination of 4x4 jeep tour through the tropical forest followed by a leisurely catamaran trip for a full family day out, finished up with sumptuous buffet at the end of the day.

  • We highly recommend

    on 26/02/2019

    Summer House was the perfect venue for our holiday. It was clean, spacious and had all the amenities that we needed. Having the tennis courts just a short walk away was a great added bonus. Paul and the team were extremely welcoming and accommodating and I would highly recommend the villa for anyone wanting a relaxing break.

  • Amazing from start to finish

    on 02/02/2019

    The house was wonderful and more than lived up to our expectations. The rooms were spacious and airy. We loved sitting and having breakfast on the upstairs verandah with the lovely view down to the water. We enjoyed time at the clubhouse with its great infinity pool and the nearby beach area was beautiful. Mary the housekeeper kept everything so clean neat and tidy. Our cook Jean made delicious dinners.

  • We would definitely come again

    on 21/03/2017

    Absolutely wonderful week in all respects in the Summer House at Sugar Hill. Very comfortable and practical, we loved the plunge pool for quick cooling off and spending hours lounging by the large infinity pool. The view of the ocean and sunset from the verandah was spectacular. We were only a short drive to the beach which was fine as it guaranteed quiet chilling at home when we wanted it. Terrific service from our housekeeper who came daily, and from the concierge.
