Property Description

Gardenia is one of the legendary Barbados beach front Villas. It is set on over 3 acres of gorgeous gardens, has a stunning swimming pool and 6 luxurious en-suite bedrooms split between four in the main house and 2 in the guest cottage. Gardenia is on a slightly elevated site and as a result has amazing views of the wonderful crystal clear and calm turquoise sea.

The location on the edge of the Garden district in Barbados is hard to beat.  This is a purely residential area and it’s where you will find all the most luxurious Barbados vacation rentals are situated. Because there are no big hotels close by, you will find that the beach here is quieter than many of the beaches on the island. Yet Gardenia is still only slightly more than 3 miles from the lovely town of Holetown and four miles from the more local Speightstown. There are several excellent restaurants close by too. One of our personal favourites is Lone Star which is just an 8 minute walk from the Villa. And if you are looking for a casual spot for lunch, then Ju ju’s is always a great bet. Mullins Beach bar is four minute drive in a northerly direction. And should you fancy a game of golf, the course at the Royal Westmoreland is just a 2 minute drive from the villa.

One of the best features of this stunning villa is without a doubt the gardens and the huge swimming pool. With over 3 acres of grounds, the gardens in Gardenia are the largest private beachfront gardens on the island. They are absolutely stunning and full of colourful and sweet smelling tropical flowers that waft through the air making you feel at one with nature. There are several trickling streams, a gorgeous lily pond, a cantilevered deck overlooking a natural gully as well as lots of nooks and crannies in the garden where you can sit in quiet reflexion. 

You will be able to hear the lapping of the sea on the shores close by and the wonderful sounds of tropical birdsong.  At night time the gardens are equally magically. They are beautifully lit and the sounds of birdsong change to a chorus of tree frogs. There is a stunning gazebo in the gardens which is the perfect place to enjoy nigh time dinners under the stars with friends and families. During the day, the gazebo is equally lovely as it is right beside the sea with beautiful views and positioned in such a way to make the most of the lovely sea breezes.

The entrance to Gardenia is really impressive. From the foyer, there is a spectacular marble staircase leading to the master suite. The foyer also flows seamlessly to the living area, huge veranda, gardens and sea.  The second you step in the door of Gardenia, you will notice the stunning views of the sea and have an immediate feel of relaxation.

The huge living area and dining area open directly onto the lovely terrace with windows that can open right up which ensure the perfect indoor/outdoor space.  This whole area is extremely relaxed with comfortable sofas, chairs, plenty of colourful cushions and Persian rugs scattered on the floors. The décor is quite classical with plenty of local coral stone and lots of natural light.  The veranda has a wet bar and a gazebo. 

Each of the six en-suite bedrooms are fully air-conditioned with luxurious furnishings and finishes. The master bedroom is particularly gorgeous as it takes up the whole of the first floor and has a stunning private terrace with a seating area and a private study.   The views from here over the gardens and to the turquoise sea are stunning. Even the views from the bathroom are gorgeous. There are a further 3 bedrooms in the main villa and each of them are located on the ground floor with direct access to the beautiful terrace which flows seamlessly to the pool and beach area.

There are two further bedrooms in the Gate House guest cottage. Each of these have King Beds, are fully air-conditioned with en-suite bathrooms. The guest cottage is fully self contained with its own sitting room and kitchen. It is perfect for older children or adults who wish to have a bit more privacy.

Gardenia also has a large and modern fully equipped kitchen which is mainly the domain of Chef Gabby but of course guests are welcome to help themselves at any time. There is also a nice games room which has a table tennis table, entertainment system and some exercise equipment.

If you like to keep fit whilst on vacation, Gardenia is the ideal choice. It has an excellent all weather tennis court, exercise equipment as well as the glorious swimming pool which is large enough to do laps. Then if you prefer to swim in the sea, the beach is just a couple of feet from the house. Directly in front of Gardenia, there is a reef but there are also plenty of good sandy swimming spots if you walk a couple of moments in either direction from the villa.

If you prefer just to relax whilst on vacation, then Gardenia is perfect for that too. The gardens and pool area have lots of comfortable sun beds and there’s plenty of natural shade should you wish to wish to relax or read a book or just enjoy the beautiful views. There are also plenty of places to enjoy the beautiful Barbados sunsets whilst enjoying a sun downer rum or an ice cold punch glass of champagne.

Gardenia comfortably sleeps up to 12 people and is a great choice for both families or groups of adults looking for somewhere very special to spend their vacation time.

 

STAFF

Gardenia has a great team who will take wonderful care of your during your stay at the villa. The team is overseen by our Butler. Gardenia also has two housekeepers and a maid who ensures the villa is always in pristine and immaculate condition. Chef Gabby is worth a particular mention as all our guests absolutely love her food.  She is assisted in the kitchen by Jackie. 

Previous clients who have stayed in Gardenia always comment on how great the team are and many of our guests return each year because of the outstanding welcome and service they received.

Customer Reviews

Our overall experience exceeded our expectations! Our concierge did a wonderful job, always there for us and answered every question we had. It was one of the best holidays I've ever had. Top rate service. Food was incredible and every detail was taken care of. Nothing could have been improved, it was perfect!

What our Experts say

We were so lucky to stay at Gardenia for 3 nights on our recent trip to Barbados - it was such a highlight. The villa is totally stunning & meticulously kept. When you walk through the main door the view just takes over! It's utterly fabulous! The master suite upstairs is breath-taking! The lovely staff deserve a special mention too! The swimming pool area is huge and it's just a stroll down through the lush gardens to the beach. There's some reef in the water directly in front but some lovely swimming spots either side of this. This section of beach feels very private. I'd highly recommend to a large family party who enjoy beachside luxury.
