Property Description

Welcome to Hemingway House, an exquisite villa rental in Barbados that epitomizes luxury at its finest. This remarkable villa boasts its very own private pool and is strategically situated between two of Barbados' most pristine beaches – Mullins Bay Beach and Gibbes Beach. Crafted in the opulent plantation style, this residence is the brainchild of renowned architect Larry Warren, harmoniously nestled between the tranquil embrace of Gibbes Beach and the vibrant allure of Mullins Beach.

Elevating your experience, the property offers an unparalleled vantage point, gifting you with the panoramic beauty of Mullins Bay to the north and the endless expanse of the ocean directly ahead. This beachfront haven stands as the pinnacle of comfort for an unforgettable family vacation in Barbados.

Ascending the two levels of this retreat, you'll be greeted by the timeless elegance of coral stone gracing both its exterior and interior. Impeccably designed, this sanctuary features handcrafted sconces, recessed lighting, ceiling fans, and air conditioning throughout. An oceanfront gazebo adorned with a marble dining table is nestled within lush tropical gardens, offering an idyllic setting for alfresco dining. Bordering this oasis is a lagoon pool, partially enveloped by a stunning rock backdrop, where cascading Bougainvilleas add to the allure. The garden's pièce de résistance is an exquisite outdoor candelabra, a gift from the architect, hanging gracefully from a shaded tree, completing the serene scene.

As you step onto the villa's ground floor, a remarkable "indoor/outdoor" living room and dining room combination unfolds, seamlessly leading to the wrap-around ocean view terrace. Overlooking the pool, a garden room bedroom awaits, complete with a fully marbled en-suite and a terrace for a private retreat. An ocean-facing veranda plays host to an alfresco dining area, resplendent Kilim furniture, bespoke light fixtures, and finely crafted iron gates that open wide, inviting the sea and gardens to become one with the space.

A haven for culinary enthusiasts, the villa features a state-of-the-art kitchen equipped with a professional Wolf range and oven, a Miele microwave and double oven, an ice maker, a Subzero double door fridge, a dishwasher, and a walk-in pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen, a fully stocked bar connects to the living room, housing two distinct wine coolers to ensure wines are impeccably chilled, an additional ice maker, and a butler's sink. A laundry area within the kitchen and external staff quarters further elevate the villa's convenience.

Ascending to the first floor unveils three remaining bedrooms. The master bedroom suite occupies the entirety of the upper sea-facing side of the home, comprising a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a walk-in dressing room, and a private study. Hardwood floors grace the spacious bedroom that opens onto a wrap-around balcony, offering stunning views of the ocean, bay, and pool, accompanied by plush lounge chairs – an ideal setting for sunset gazing.

The opulent en-suite bathroom showcases marble floors, a centerpiece Cherry wood-enclosed bath designed by C.P. Hart, his-and-her marble vanities with elegant free-standing wooden cabinets, and a seating-enhanced spacious shower with jets. The study, conveniently positioned between the master bedroom and en-suite, grants direct access to the balcony, further enhancing the seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Adjacent to the master suite lies the second bedroom, featuring a walk-in dressing room and a balcony overlooking the bay, pool, and garden below. The spacious family en-suite bathroom accompanies the bedroom, offering both a shower and bathtub, complemented by his-and-hers vanities and marble floors.

Completing the trio is the third bedroom, which also opens onto the balcony, affording views of the pool and garden. An en-suite with his-and-hers vanity and a walk-in shower room adds to the comfort of this space. While the other bedrooms boast king-size beds, their own televisions, and Sonos sound, this particular room features a queen bed, providing flexibility.

Hemingway House stands as the epitome of beachfront luxury, a haven for families or friends in search of a private, modern, and amenity-rich retreat by the sea.
