The pool is surrounded by beautiful lawns which flow seamlessly down to the beach. The gardens are extremely spacious and really lovely.

There’s a beautiful stretch of beach once you walk down the garden & through a little gate to the right. There is over 200 feet of beautiful beach frontage. Mostly the swimming is perfect directly in front of the villa but occasionally in high tide, you may need to walk a couple of moments to the left or right to swim. There is also some really excellent snorkelling just off shore where you will get to see some very colourful corals and tropical fish.
The location is truly wonderful as this end of Barbados tends to be a little quieter yet you still have the lovely properties of both Cobblers Cove to one side and Saint Peters Bay to the other. Both are boutique style properties with excellent restaurants should you decide to dine out for lunch or dinner. Leamington Pavilion is also located very close to the lovely traditional town of Speightstown. In addition the golf courses at Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland are just a short drive from Leamington Pavilions.
