Villa overview - owner's description
Sandy Grove is an opulent, colonial style home set in majestic private gardens framed by tropical plants and elegant palm trees. Perched on the glittering west coast of Barbados (known as the “platinum coast”), in the exclusive Sandy Lane Estate, this prestigious home blends the best of seclusion with walking distance to beaches, bars and shopping amenities. This sumptuous abode also offers the ideal fusion of discreet staff presence along with self-contained family living.
A lavish home, dripping with unapologetic decorative flair, it offers masterfully proportioned spaces with abundant potential for entertaining, fine dining and upscale living. This home's commanding, Palladian exterior is finished with dazzling white coral, terracotta tiles and expansive, manicured gardens. Guests will be able to wander outdoors to enjoy the fragrant seclusion of a tropical idyll. Elegant porches, cloistered verandas, sleek pool side with chic loungers and romantic balcony - whether it be an evening meal in the soft, sea breezes or a poolside party, it will be executed with style!
Surrounded by luscious vegetation at every turn, guests will enjoy the tropical oasis as a retreat from the tourist hotspots, as well as the flamboyant, air-conditioned interiors.
The interiors at Sandy Grove offer guests a heady mix of regal charm, imperial grandeur and stately touches along with baroque decorative flair! A grand entrance with cool marble, white pillars and distinguished symmetry provides such a pleasing effect - an undertone of colonial formality is present along with indulgent rococo chi-chi.
A large open dining area provides elegant, polished mahogany furnishing, exquisitely ruched pearly white silk curtains and Venetian style garden doors, flowing effortlessly to the drawing room, finished with imperial crimsons, golds, antique timbers and gilded frames.
A large and immaculately equipped kitchen finished with glossy marble offers access to the ever-inviting gardens with their fragrant mahogany trees and mysterious overgrowth. The five bedrooms each offer a hint of grown up glamour; from genteel writing desk, to sedate rocking chair, or ornate mahogany four poster bed, each of these offers a serene get-away from the buzzing Sandy Lane attractions.
For cocktail parties, long and leisurely lunches, or refreshing pool side breakfasts, there is the cool shade of the dining pavilion, or the pretty pergola. Or, perhaps an afternoon tea with quintessential colonial flavour on the white wrought-iron dining set beneath the charming cloistered porch.
A graceful haven of vivacious style, tropical tranquillity and decadent local attractions, Sandy Grove offers families or groups an unforgettable experience, blending Caribbean ease with designer finesse.
Sandy Grove can be found with the Sandy Lane Resort, but is well sheltered from other holiday homes. With large gardens, this impressive 5-bedroom villa has lots od privacy.

Sandy Grove 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. Despite this region being developed with high-end hotels and stately private residences to an international jet-set, its coast remains one of the most beautiful Barbados has to offer. With the recent development of extensive boardwalks, visitors can enjoy spectacular sunset strolls with the glittering sea as their companion.
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.
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 Sandy Grove, 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!
