Town house overview - owner's description
Halcyon at Old Trees is a sumptuous two-bedroom apartment with glittering views of the Caribbean Sea, set in a majestic complex of similar abodes, offering luscious communal gardens and a discreet staff offering.
A low-maintenance and chic pad, Halcyon is the quintessential “pied-a-terre” for those who seek an unfussy, yet stylish, setting, close to all the hotspots of the West Coast, whilst offering a haven of cooling, calm serenity.
The delightful open-plan interiors are a vivacious blend of contemporary comfort and classic Bajan style; the hallmark arched windows and coral pillars are quintessentially characteristic of the island, whilst indoor and outdoor living blend seamlessly. Guests will be able to wander out to the plunge pool from their living quarters and cool off in the trade winds, with a rum cocktail in hand.
This sleek home offers the best of both worlds: with both the privacy of a self-contained apartment as well as discreet staff presence, guests can truly be pampered. Safe and secure, with staff security presence, guests here will be able to truly unwind.
A vibrant open-plan living space offers a light-filled and airy space, with a neutral, creamy palette, ambient lighting and natural timbers. Strikingly simple, yet flawlessly finished, this is a home where guests will immediately feel the lightness of the Caribbean touch!
With lovely wicker seating, again a hallmark of the island, the artful lounge graciously flows into the private outdoor nook and plunge pool, whilst views of the sea beckon alluringly. Two stylish bedrooms are light-filled and breezy, full of local charm and finessed with natural raw materials, along with all the comfort of a boutique hotel, and nautical accents of cobalt and azure run throughout this home.
Halcyon is an effortless choice; designed for ease, comfort and low-key luxury, on one of the most striking stretches of coast in the world.

Halcyon is nestled on the edge of Paynes Bay, on the "Platinum Coast" on the west side of the island. Many locals believe that it is one of the island's best swimming beaches for both the calm seas of the Caribbean and the vivacious neighbourhood. The beach at Paynes Bay is vibrant but but not overcrowded; it also offers parking facilities, showers and toilets, on-duty lifeguards, and retail outlets for refreshments and food.
In the parish of St. James, with Sandy Lane and Holetown to the north, and Fitts Village and Batts Rock Bay to the south, Halcyon is in a prime spot to explore the island.
The nearby 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.
Sandy Grove 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 Halcyon, 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.
