Overlooking the Caribbean Sea, amid verdurous gardens on the Platinum Coast, One Sandy Lane is an enclave of ultimately private, refined and secure villas exuding an ambience of an unsurpassed opulence. Arguably the most luxurious property ever built on the island, this magnificent compound, replete with eight sumptuous residences, is a convergence of architectural Êlan and the casual elegance that exemplifies the Barbados lifestyle. The palatial villas range in size from 8,000 to 9,500 sq. ft. No detail was spared in the construction of One Sandy Lane; these superlative residences were conceived to emulate the graceful beauty of the Sandy Lane Hotel, located a short stroll away. The interiors feature superb craftsmanship and striking artistry. With its one of a kind lifestyle and unrivalled offerings, these residences represent the ultimate escape – a unique vision providing a rare chance to purchase within one of the most illustrious addresses in the Caribbean.

In the ongoing quest for perfection, the marble was selected at the quarry by experts from Bufalini Marmi, then cut and pre-assembled in Italy to guarantee uniformity of colour and vein. From the moment of its conception, the creation of One Sandy Lane has been undertaken with a rare determination to achieve the pinnacle of excellence in every aspect of its completion. The team that fashioned One Sandy Lane has paid minute attention to detail and utilised the very finest materials from around the world, along with exclusive designs and custom-made architectural features. For example, the elegant white pewter and iron balustrades that grace the magnificent spiral staircase and are found throughout the property have all been manufactured by Les Ateliers St. Jacques of Paris. This eminent French company is renowned throughout the world for executing exceptional renovations of historic buildings, most notably the Palace of Versailles. The balustrades have been entirely made by hand and they are unique to One Sandy Lane. The many beautifully curved and vaulted ceilings are made of traditional French ‘staff’, which is a very special mixture of Plaster of Paris and fibres that can form designs of any shape. In order to deliver the very highest quality, E. G. Deco of Monaco actually set up and operated a complete workshop inside the property for some two years. The impressive architecture of One Sandy Lane embraces traditional tropical features such as expansive verandas, timber posts and the use of coral stone. The Barbadian coral stone, carved and shaped by local craftsmen, provides a complementary match for the superb quality Italian marble that is used throughout the building. In the ongoing quest for perfection, the marble was selected at the quarry by experts from Bufalini Marmi, then cut and pre-assembled in Italy to guarantee uniformity of colour and vein. In a similar manner, no compromise has been allowed with regard to the exceptional quality of the paintwork on the interior walls of One Sandy Lane. French artisans have used natural pigments to make the paint, then applied it with a palette knife, adding as many as seven different layers of texture and tone. The end result of this traditional method is a truly magnificent finish that adds a remarkable visual depth to the dĂŠcor. One Sandy Lane has been meticulously designed to ensure that each individual residence is as independent as possible and benefits from maximum privacy. Protected by vigilant but discreet security, and with the benefit of a centralised Security Control Room and secure underground parking, residents at One Sandy Lane can rest assured that their privacy will not be disturbed.

By Laura Henderson

Editor of UK luxury property magazine Abode2

One of the island’s newest five-star resort additions on the Barbados Riviera, Laura Henderson samples a taste of the des-res high life at St Peters Bay Tour Barbados and the island’s real-estate heritage stands proud from every seascape and hilltop balcony – from the bijou chattel houses and pastel coloured stilt cottages once transported from one plantation to another, to the rambling Colonial estates dressed in styles that span Palladian Regency to neo-Gothic. One niche residential sector that encapsulates the island’s well-mined bricks and mortar evolution more than most however, is that of resort living, with landmark development St Peters Bay a quality benchmark to emulate.

Nestling on 4 acres of prime west coast beachfront, the resort ticks all the essential ‘castaway living’ boxes – a pristine frontline location, clear blue waters and a refined collection of leisure amenities. What particularly appeals is the small-scale, boutique feel of the development: just fifty-seven luxury homes, including six spectacular penthouse suites and three deluxe penthouse suites enjoy a secluded waterfront setting fringed by tropical greenery, exotically scented gardens and shady terraces. Just a short barefoot schlepp from my villa and I can dip my toes in the glistening freeform pool which borders the beach. Scooting up to nearby bustling Speightstown for a spot of al fresco lunch is a breeze – a quick tilt of the sun hat to crewman Reco and the resort’s private water taxi is ready and waiting to whisk me away. In fact decompressing guests into prescribed holiday mode is a finely-honed skill at St Peters Bay, with an attentive in-house concierge service to cater to your every whim from securing ‘best table’ bookings at the top restaurants to planning day trips to the island’s key note attractions, arranging inresidence dining and even scheduling water-sports, golf and sailing activities.

Residences epitomise refined comfort. Meticulously designed and stylishly appointed, my stunning home-from-home for the duration of my stay was a super-sized three-bedroom penthouse: 2,700 square feet of fan-cooled, louvre-windowed living space comprising a spacious, elegant master suite, bespoke design bathroom with rain shower and freestanding bath, two additional en-suite bedrooms, a state-of-the-art galley kitchen and the ultimate indulgence - an outsize gallery terrace complete with spa pool; the perfect spot for an early morning dip.

ST PETERS BAY – THE FACTS Property prices at St. Peters Bay start from $1.95m for a three bedroom residence rising to upwards of $7.75m for a deluxe, four-bed penthouse with with a 970 sq. ft. private roof terrace with a pool, additional dining and barbecue area. On-site amenities include a full gym and yoga studio, hair and nail salon, concierge, and beachside gazebo bar serving light lunches. A water taxi service with access to surrounding restaurants and beaches is also available. In addition to the above portfolio of services, owners who enjoy boating have access to a select number of berths with duty free yacht concessions at Port Ferdinand Marina that are reserved and available for Saint Peter’s Bay homeowners. Interior décor palettes complement the resort’s traditional Caribbean design with authentic detailing sconces and picture windows – walls in coral rock with much of the woodwork ‘pickled’ pine, a whitewash that gives a pleasant and light effect, while pastel drapes complete the muted, restorative theme Deluxe penthouses don’t skimp on luxury trimmings either. Boasting 6,330 square feet of space, interiors comprise a spectacular master suite with large walk through dressing area and bathroom, three additional en-suite bedrooms, a terrace bar and private roof deck with full-size pool, and a state-of-the art media room and home office. The litmus test of any successful development is engendering that special feeling of having left the world behind. In the case of St Peters Bay it’s the buzz on the beach by day, a stunning property within earshot of the waves, and above all, a place to unwind and, where the staff are only too happy to take the strain, so you can just kick back. That, in a nutshell is St Peters Bay. It’s the ultimate dose of luxe island flair.

Tennis Elite Contest Barbados Dream Cup Championship For decades Barbados has been enjoyed as a respite for the jet-set lured by the island’s tropical beauty, turquoise waters and relaxed attitude that provides a haven from the bright lights and fast-lane of fame and fortune. Perhaps beguiled by the island’s charms, Barbados is now also attracting some of the best tennis players in the world to compete in an audacious tournament challenge garnering global attention. November 2013’s Dream Cup was contested by Andy Murray (4), Juan Martin Del Potro (5), Richard Gasquet (10) and Nicholas Almagro (13 ) in what was one of the most unique and intimate settings to see such a clash of top-class talent in a competitive event, almost unparalleled in professional tennis circles.

The 2013 Dream Cup was a showdown between impressive tennis blue-bloods, however, Barbados insiders will know that this is not the first time that top calibre players have graced the island’s Sir Garfield Sobers Gymnasium stadium. In fact, The Dream Cup has emerged from a series of fund-raising exhibition matches organized in 2010 and 2011. Overwhelmed by the response from elite players such as Serena and Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Victoria Azarenka, Gael Monfils and John Isner, the organizers were quick to recognize the abundant potential to develop the event beyond the exhibition format. Bolstered by new alliances with key strategic partners, the Dream Cup intends to establish itself firmly on the annual international tennis fixtures luring top tennis talent to Barbados with an exotic location, exceptional prize offerings and delighting fans with a distinctive and unique approach to top-class tournament tennis. The men’s singles tennis stars competed for the grand prize of up to USD $500, 000 in villa accommodation at the exclusive, west-coast-paradise, Saint Peter’s Bay property. The tennis action was carried live across ESPN’s international networks providing an extraordinary showcase for Barbados and those lucky enough to attend the event

found exceptional opportunities not only to experience first-rate tennis at close quarters but attended off-court events to mix and mingle informally with the players at select island venues. Behind the Dream Cup’s innovative concept is its heart-felt philosophy to ‘aspire to inspire,’ a creed engendered by Director Kodi Lewis’s initial desire to raise money to help his brother Haydn play tennis at the highest professional level. This has shaped the one-of-a-kind invitational tennis tournament which aims to raise money to assist Barbados’ top tennis talent in pursuing their dreams, as well as to support youth through the Barbados Tennis Association’s development programs. Lewis strongly believes that the power of providing such experiences goes beyond tennis to promote for example, a healthy lifestyle, encouraging youth to pursue their dreams through commitment and hard work and to have a positive impact on the Barbados brand, growth of sports tourism sector and contribution to the economy. The inaugural Dream Cup 2013 Men’s singles semi-finals (a best of three set format) took place on Friday 29 November at the Sir Garfield Sobers Gymnasium followed by the Dream Cup final on Saturday. Alternating annually, The Dream Cup will feature a Ladies singles tennis tournament in 2014.

Exclusive Seating/ Event Packages Offer Slice of Style For the best the Dream Cup had to offer, attendees could choose from one of the custom hospitality packages that included luxury services to enhance their experience at match events with added comfort and convenience. A cut above the rest, these limited tickets were designed to provide an unforgettable experience throughout the Dream Cup and included special access to restricted off court events. More than just a tennis match, this was a chance to get up close and personal with the tennis stars and to mingle with personal and professional contacts at a relaxing and memorable event. Whether a private party or entertaining corporate clients these packages provided an experience that was unforgettable. Depending on the package chosen one had the privilege of attending the Players Evening Cocktail Party on Thursday 28 November where the match draw took place, the Cocktails on the Court exhibition match and mixer at Sugar Hill on Sunday 1 December and/ or an intimate barbeque with the players at Saint Peter’s Bay.

The Dream Cup will feature a Ladies singles tennis tournament in 2014.

Hospitality packages: Courtside Hospitality And Deluxe Packages Ticket holders kicked off the Dream Cup excitement and found out first hand, who was playing who, with an invitation to a private soiree for the players where the match draw was determined. This package included everything for a remarkable match experience including VIP parking, access to the all-inclusive and catered VIP marquee and special VIP courtside seating for both semi-final and final events. It also included ticket to attend Sundays Cocktails on the Court & Auction at Sugar Hill Resort.

Dream Experience Package The ultimate in exclusivity - fewer than 50 people were afforded the opportunity to take part in the Dream Experience, an extraordinary package with access to the very best that Dream Cup had to offer. Literally this was a chance, like no other, to be a tennis insider with unrivalled access to their favourite tennis stars. Not only did the Dream Experience include entry to all matches and private events but created one of the most unique seating and hospitality areas in tennis. Dream Lounges, located courtside behind the north and south baselines, offered the best views in the house and were reserved for Players, their entourages and Dream Experience guests. Stylishly decorated, the Dream Lounge epitomised elegance, and ultimate comfort was offered via wait-service even during the game. VIP guests and clients experienced the speed of tennis’s most elite athletes from this unparalleled viewpoint, as they competed for the Dream Cup prize and provided an experience that will last a lifetime! Unfortunately The Dream Cup 2013 had to be prosponed in 2013 due to injured players the event will now take place in 2014. Dates and further details will be circulated in due course.

Janice Sylvia Brock

Janice Sylvia Brock has been a professional artist for over 40 years, producing a truly remarkable body of work. Primarily working with traditional oils on canvas, she has become one of the most exciting painters of our time. Renowned worldwide, there are even two Brocks hanging in the White House, and Saatchi recently held a very successful Brock exhibition. After experiencing a traumatic period due to her severe childhood arthritis, Brock chose to defy her physicians' gloomy predictions of a short life with little prospects by focusing on her sheer lust for living and all things beautiful. Her grit, determination and boundless optimistic spirit combined with her amazing natural artistic talent have resulted in Brock becoming one of the world's favourite artists.

Brock is a master of colour and form. The vibrant hues, the sense of movement, the free style, the sometimes offbeat treatment of subjects, imbue her paintings with a joie de vivre. Her work has been likened to that of Matisse; like him, Brock will approach a new canvas without the aid of sketches, photographs or preliminary outlines. From the first stroke of colour laid onto the virgin canvas, her brush strokes are utterly confident, and this is evident in the result: works which resonate with life, sensuality, and humour. The diversity of Brock's creativity is literally breathtaking - although she works mainly in oils, she will occasionally work in other media to get the effect she needs.

The ultimate survivor, Brock's life-force seems boundless despite the many huge challenges that life has thrown at her. Because of her challenging life experiences, she empathises deeply with the disabled community at large and has worked tirelessly for many years, helping to raise over $500,000 for numerous charities throughout

Barbados and the UK. In recognition for her extensive charitable work, Brock was recently invited to meet Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Brock welcomes visitors to her gallery in Barbados, as well as the one located in Alderley Edge, UK. In November 2013. Brock's fascinating autobiography about her battle for survival and her success story of how she became an internationally renowned artist was published.

OUR STORY

Mount Gay Rum is the oldest, most storied, most nuanced rum in the world. Our unique double – pot distillation process came to Barbados with the first merchant ships, the source of our rum’s distinctive aromatic character since 1703. The product of two worlds, we craft it to the standards originally set by our British namesake, Sir John Gay. Today, local ingredients are selected and combined by our Barbadian master blender, Allen Smith. Ageing it in Bourbon oak barrels, he brings out its flavour slowly and patiently. It isn’t rushed, isn’t codified, isn’t franchised. It’s ready when it’s ready, not before.

40

Fresh Fruit Mojito Recipe To a shaker add: 5-7 Mint Leaves 3 Lime wedges, 1½oz Mount Gay Silver/Eclipse 2 teaspoons of Brown Sugar and muddle. Add ice and soda, (add fresh fruit juice for flavoured mojito) then shake. Pour into glass and top with soda water. Garnish with a sprig of mint.

Mount Gay Eclipse In 1910, the twin phenomena of a total solar eclipse and the passage of Halley’s Comet inspired the creation of Eclipse. Lavishly awarded, this noble blend of single and double distilled rums has enchanted generations of rum lovers the world over.

Tasting Notes Brilliant golden amber in colour, Eclipse bears a complex aroma with fruity notes of apricot and banana, hints of vanilla and a subtle smokiness.

Nelson Gay

Speightstown, St. Peter

Nelson Gay, an elegant six bedroom coral stone Palladian mansion, is located on the West Coast of Barbados in a lush tropical beachfront estate of nearly two acres. Nelson Gay’s garden opens straight onto a stunning half-mile beach. The clear, sheltered Caribbean Sea is roped off for safe swimming and is ideal for all water sports. There is also a coral reef for excellent snorkeling. Nelson Gay is just perfect for a totally relaxing and unforgettable holiday. British architect Barbara Hill designed the elegant mansion in the 1960s, under commission by US Ambassador Robert M. Scotten as his private residence. Inspired by a novel about life in the Winward Islands, Hill moved to Barbados in 1958, where she was a founding member of the local Institute of Architects and an active member of the Barbados National Trust. Nelson Gay, designed in the West Indian Colonial style, is considered one of Hill’s best works, ranking among one of Barbados’ finest homes. Most recently renovated under the direction of architect Brian Surfleet, Nelson Gay has maintained a timeless quality difficult to find in more recently built properties, expertly mixing classic Palladian architecture with modern amenities to create the ideal family holiday setting. The home provides elegant accommodation for a couple desiring generous space for entertaining, and is also spacious enough for a large group or family, as it sleeps up to 18 people by special arrangement. Situated on one level, the house has a central living area flanked by two wings; the rooms are spacious, airy and decorated with a sense of relaxed elegance. The design palette of white with accents of green compliment the tropical environs as well as the vibrant art collection, which includes several antiques and notable works of art, including a stunning Erté mural and a fine collection of Haitian paintings. After approaching the house by a circular drive, the main entrance hall sets the tone for the home’s refined tropical elegance; it features a marble floor with a compass rose design, breezy latticework, tropical plants and impressive sculptures. The hall opens to the living room, featuring a 14’ ceiling with an intricate wrought iron chandelier and most impressively, an unobstructed view of the gardens, pool and Caribbean Sea just beyond. The South Wing of the home includes the kitchen, laundry room and formal dining room, a masterpiece within itself. Lit by candlelight only, the dining room provides a dramatic, intimate setting for evening parties. Featuring a glass-topped table designed by renowned designer Oliver Messel, complimented by French antique chairs and a selection of five different place settings, including Wedgewood, Rosenthal and Mikasa, the dining room accommodates up to 12 guests. There are five bedrooms in the main house, each decorated in a soothing palette of green and white, with high quality linens, chandelier lighting, billowing curtains and tiled flooring also designed by Messel. The bedrooms are each individually air-conditioned and feature plasma televisions, cable and DVD players for entertainment; some have a small fridge and mini bar for added convenience. These five bedrooms, combined with the one bedroom cottage, have seven bathrooms in total (including a ‘His and Hers’), as well as a guest cloakroom.

One bedroom is located in the South Wing; featuring his and hers en suite bathrooms with showers. The bedroom’s external doors fold back to reveal a charming private patio with sitting area and verdant foliage, ideal for a morning cup of tea or private relaxation. The North Wing houses the other four bedrooms, two of which comprise an impressively spacious Master Suite connected by a large en suite bathroom with shower; there is a second en suite bathroom in the suite as well. The Erté Mural Room features a queen-sized bed, en suite bathroom with bath/shower and access to a covered terrace opening on to the pool and gardens. The room has been aptly named due to the unique mermaid mural painted by the artist on the bedroom’s wall, where he stayed during his frequent visits to Nelson Gay. Born in St. Petersburg in 1892, Erté established himself in Paris as a fashion illustrator for Harper’s Bazaar magazine, for which he produced 250 covers over 22 years. Best remembered for the extravagant costumes and stage sets he designed for the Folles-Bergère, he is considered one of the foremost fashion and stage designers of the twentieth century. The fourth and final bedroom in the North Wing, the Green Room, features two single beds (which can be combined as a large king), en suite bath with shower, pool terrace access as well as a private patio opening on to the gardens. The North Wing also has a media room with a range of entertainment amenities, including a 55” flat screen television with surround sound, cable television and a library of over 400 DVD titles. There is also a day bed that can be used for additional single accommodation if necessary. As impressive as the interior living space is, Nelson Gay’s outdoor space is the true gem of the property. Complimented with lush green foliage and tropical flowers, residents will surely spend much of their time on the 60 ft. wide terrace, enjoying the environs. Running adjacent to the central living room, the terrace provides three separate areas for lounging or dining poolside. The shaded lounge area has a light, airy and inviting appeal, with ceiling fans, white cushioned furniture, vibrant accessories and a clear view of the gardens and pool to keep an eye on the children or just to enjoy the surroundings. There are two dining areas; the first features a large table with seating for up to 20 people under a canopy with fans, and a smaller table located poolside in the center of the terrace enjoys full sun or moonlight. The terrace is complimented by beautiful flora and fauna, as well as lighting designed by Bruce Munro.

B E AC H V I L L A S & P R O P E RT I E S

The focal point of the gardens is the stunning 50 ft. pool that extends from the terrace toward the sea at the far end of the lawn; finished with Italian green tiling with inlaid mosaics of turtles and tropical fish, its stunning beauty is further enhanced by dramatic underwater lighting, creating an ideal setting for poolside evening cocktails. The pool is bordered by a verdant lawn with inviting green cushioned loungers, where residents can enjoy both full sun and shade throughout the course of the day. The pool can be fenced for young children’s safety, as well as heated on request. An octagonal ‘Chinese’ dining gazebo, designed by architect Larry Warren, is a charming addition to the garden; it seats up to 14 and has a wet bar and fridge for easy entertaining, providing an excellent setting for relaxing on the comfortable sofas or enjoying al fresco dining. At the far end of the garden, there is direct access to the coral sand beach, with seating just before the private beach gate. There is a roped area for safe swimming and a nearby coral reef provides excellent snorkeling. Cobblers Cove Hotel is just a short walk up the beach, where guests of Nelson Gay can enjoy tennis, a gym and spa services for a small fee. Additional concierge services can be arranged through the house manager and West Coast Villas Sotheby’s International Realty, ensuring your stay is customized to your group’s interests. In addition to the main house’s accommodation for up to 11 persons, Nelson Gay offers three additional guest quarters within the grounds that can accommodate up to seven additional guests. A self-contained guest cottage with private patio and en suite bathroom sleeps three additional guests. There are also two traditional Barbadian wooden Chattel Houses, charming cottages featuring porches, gingerbread trim and white shuttered windows. Each cottage provides accommodation for two people (one with bunk beds) and an en suite bathroom; one also has a small kitchenette. Perfect for teens or young adult guests, the Chattel Houses can be used by special arrangement. With such a range of accommodation, Nelson Gay is an ideal holiday retreat for groups of friends as well as families with children of all ages. Several measures have been taken to ensure Nelson Gay provides a stress-free, safe environment for families with small children to enjoy their holiday. The pool can be fenced on request, and all outdoor and indoor furniture is covered in durable, washable and ‘childproof’ Sunbrella fabric. The beach is an excellent play area, and the sea is normally calm and safe for supervised swimming. A crib with mosquito netting is available for babies up to nine months, and additional equipment can be arranged through concierge services. To ensure your holiday exceeds your expectations, Nelson Gay is staffed by an experienced, well-trained and friendly team including a butler, chef, housekeeper, maid / laundress, two gardeners and a night watchman.

Bonita Bay offers an exceptional opportunity to develop two high-end beachfront villas. The property consists of two large plots, each offering 15,000 sq. ft.; Plot 1 has 75 ft. of beach frontage while Plot 2 has 81 ft. Together, the plots total an impressive 30,000 sq. ft and offer a rare 156 ft. of coastal frontage to the Caribbean Sea. There is an existing structure that was built on the high water mark in the 1990's, prior to the current Town & Country set-back regulation of 100 ft. Although the building is in derelict condition, it is structurally sound and offers an opportunity to develop a stunning beachfront villa that would be literally located 'on the beach'. The Barbados Coastal Department has verbally agreed to a set-back requirement of 40-50 ft. for any new construction on the property. Nestled amongst established gardens, the proposed villas offer exquisite outdoor living spaces, with large pools, covered terraces and sun decks. The spacious floor plans feature a great room, media room, en suite bedrooms and open-plan kitchen with Miele appliances.

“Welcome to Aliseo, Sandy Lane”

Said with a gracious smile, as I am led through the foyer of this magnificent villa on the island’s Platinum Coast. Italian in origin, the name “Aliseo” translates to mean “Tradewind” in English, and as its name suggests, this property is a breath of fresh air. This beautiful tropical villa, complete with 9 en-suite bedrooms capable of sleeping up to 18 persons, is ideal for the perfect family vacation. Situated high atop the picturesque Sandy Lane Estate, the property is run like an exclusive boutique hotel, and maintains extremely high standards on par with its elite location. A testament to this, on my arrival I am greeted by the gracious and un-assuming Butler of the property,

Edmund, otherwise known as “the man of business”. As is his duty to fulfill all requests by the patrons of Aliseo, all requests no matter how small are swiftly and efficiently dealt with, from organising a personal trainer to a yoga or pilates expert, or an in-house spa experience, encompassing the full spectrum of treatments, a cocktail party or customized island tour with picnic, Edmund goes above and beyond to ensure the satisfaction of his guests; he does it all with an easy grace, his sweet manner making life at Aliseo just that extra bit special. On my personal guided tour of the property, I encounter some of the most delightfully furnished rooms I have ever been given the grace to see. Every room is out-fitted with air conditioning, beautiful panel ceiling fans, en-suite bathrooms, walk in wardrobes and flat screen TV’s. Every room is unique in its design and layout, the décor has a very English Baroque feel to it with heavy drapery and ornate rugs co-existing alongside beautifully made mahogany and oak pieces. You almost begin to feel as though you are residing in an old castle by the seaside. However, there are distinctive touches which highlight the nature of its tropical location. The two-storey villa hones in on an old Bajan Plantation element that one cannot help but feel comfortable in; the upper level houses very tastefully designed bedrooms, all with arresting views of the manicured grounds. The “Bajan Suite” or Master Suite, has its own private terrace overlooking the stunning garden and swimming pool below. It is elegant and private with a beautiful 4 poster king size bed alongside gorgeous mahogany armoires and vanities, giving it that special old world Caribbean charm. The Ocean Suite and Monkey Suites are equipped with two twin beds fitted in crisp white linens and corresponding décor to match the themes suggested in the names, such as a monkey lamp and wall art, tropical fish dresser and light fixtures all with little jungle animal accents. These youthful artistic touches make these suites ideal for families with young children. The suites on the lower level provide the very same luxurious furnishings with light crisp fabrics juxtaposed with heavy antique accents, providing a grand yet understated elegance. The Garden Suite is the only room which allows full access to the exquisite lawns and garden directly from the room itself, with beautiful doors opening onto the expansive poolside terrace. The open spaces and airy, feel is a compliment to this exceptional villa, as one wanders from room to room engaged in awe at the beautiful art adorning the walls. Every room has something beautiful to offer.

Luxurious décor aside, Aliseo is much more than just a pretty face. The staff here are dedicated to making your stay as comfortable and carefree as possible. A holiday at Aliseo can start with a VIP meet and greet

at the airport where guests are whisked through immigration queues and escorted to air conditioned luxury vehicles that await to take guests to the villa, an elegant start to what would be a very stylish vacation. Apart from the delightful Edmund, Aliseo offers guests the services of a housekeeper, laundress and a top rated chef, who can prepare an intimate breakfast or a sumptuous feast for 18, a relaxed lunch by the pool, or a more formal 3 course dinner if required; your wish is his command and he caters to the individual needs of each client. All guests also have access through Sandy Lane to the beach facility where they are provided with sun beds and umbrellas. Guests are also entitled to use the hotel’s award winning golf course, tennis courts, restaurants and spa by reservation. Edmund can also arrange for cocktail evenings or afternoon canapÊs for some in-house entertainment, or even perhaps a wedding or two‌.and I hear through the grapevine that his rum punch is a force to be reckoned with!

Aliseo is the perfect venue for a wedding reception, what an ideal place to start your journey together. The beautifully manicured grounds offer more than enough space and the tropical flora ensures an amazing backdrop for the exchanging of vows on that special day. Ginger lilies cascade down from a coral stone wall alongside banana and coconut palms, neem trees and a shocking violet bougainvillea, all coming together to form a botanical vista that could compete with the Garden of Eden. The focal point of the garden would have to be the elevated private gazebo; its lofty heights descend down to the pool and provide a wide vista of the arresting beauty of this luxurious property as well as breathtaking sea views.

MANGROVE PLANTATION Black Bess, St. Peter A historic hillside retreat built in the 1700s, Mangrove Plantation has a story woven within Barbados’ own history. This former residence of Governor Skeete lay in ruins until it was rediscovered in 2000, when it was lovingly restored to create a luxurious yet comfortable family home. Mangrove Plantation comprises 195 acres of prime land and has uninterrupted, panoramic views across cane fields and wooded gullies towards the Caribbean Sea, which is just 10 minutes’ drive away.

Nestled amongst nearly 30 acres of verdant tropical gardens and manicured lawns, the main house, carriage house and mill have been restored with meticulous attention to detail to create a spacious private home and guest cottage that can comfortably accommodate 14 people plus housekeeping staff. The buildings are constructed from coral stone excavated from the on-site quarry, which is now a lush secret garden. There is also a family-size swimming pool. Painstaking care has been taken to combine original features with contemporary fittings. The property is luxuriously finished with artwork by Caribbean artists, bespoke Persian rugs and West Indian plantation-style furniture imported from Europe and America. Coconut, banana, papaya and breadfruit trees are dotted across the grounds and a historic bearded fig overhangs the quarry garden. A mature orchard of avocado, mango and guava is shared with the colony of green monkeys that visit the estate, and a monkey-themed family room has been specially designed in their honour. Fully stormproofed and self-sufficient, the plantation house has its own generator and water supply. Designs exist for further development of the remaining out-buildings and more.

Price: US$7,800,000 Extensive and distinct parcels of land surrounding Mangrove Plantation are also available for sale. For further details please contact Richard Young at richard@westcoastvillas.com or (246) 253-5857
