Property Description

Stanford House is a 5 bedroom luxury villa with private pool located on an elevated site on the Polo Ridge overlooking the platinum West Coast of Barbados. This beautiful villa which is over 5000 square feet in living space has stunning panoramic views due to its positioning overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea. The villa is set in its own stunning gardens and offers wonderful privacy that is hard to find these days.  It truly has the best of both worlds as it is located just a couple of minutes drive to the beach at Payne’s Bay or an 11 minute drive to the very exclusive beach at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion where you will have VIP membership during your stay.

From the moment you walk in the door of the house, your breath will be taken away.  Both the living areas and bedrooms are constructed on one level. The living room is very chic with comfortable white sofas and chairs and flows seamlessly via three sets of floor to ceiling French doors that open up completely to the terrace, infinity pool and gardens. Both during the day and at night time, the terrace is lovely and has a beautiful outdoor dining and sitting area. During the day, your eye will no doubt be drawn to the incredible view but at night, the villa lights up beautifully with the staff at Stanford House taking pride in creating a wonderful romantic atmosphere for our guests.

The pool and gardens at Stanford House are particular lovely. The gardens which are over an acre in size are full of and lushly planted shrubs, mature palms and tropical flowers. The whole area has a wonderful air of tranquillity. 

The pool is an infinity style pool and is large enough to do proper laps should you wish to get some exercise. To the left of the gardens there is a beautiful round gazebo bar area. This is the perfect place to meet friends or enjoy the amazing sunsets you will inevitably get to see whilst staying at Stanford House. There is also a self contained barbeque area and a Jacuzzi at the end of the gardens. One of the highlights is the domed shaped gazebo which is a perfect spot to either read a good book or just enjoy the spectacular views of the sea and Payne’s Bay beach below. This gazebo was imported especially from Italy and is covered in sparkling fairy lights which looks really magical at night time. The gardens also have some lovely water features and Italian style statues.

Four of the five luxury bedrooms are located in the main house and the fifth bedroom has a separate entrance in the guest wing of the house. Stanford House sleeps up to 10 people and is a perfect choice for a large family, two smaller families or a group of adults as two of the bedrooms may be used as a twin with two single beds or King sized doubles. There is a very nice air-conditioned super comfortable television room which has a spectacular eight foot aquarium which separates it from the lounge area. The cinema has a huge plasma flat screened television with surround sound system should you wish to enjoy the latest block buster. There is also a DVD player and Sony Play station.

Should you wish to keep fit during your vacation, there’s a gym available to guests very close by at Holders Hill. It is a short drive and Villa Barbados’ guests may pay as they go.  Only the spin room is air-conditioned but there are large fans in the other training rooms and you will feel the breeze from the local trade winds coming through the open windows to help keep you cool whilst you are working out.

WEDDINGS Stanford House is a wonderful choice for a small wedding or special private party. They can cater up to 50 guests and the back drop of the pool and the sparkling fairy lights in the gardens make it a very magical place to spend your special day.   

BEACH CLUB Guests of Villas Barbados who stay at Stanford House will have VIP access to the Beach Club at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion. Our Butler at Stanford House will happily drive your hired car to the beach and collect you when you are ready to leave.  The membership is available for up to 10 people. You will receive complimentary sun beds, umbrellas and access to the swimming pool. There are also a variety of water sports on the beach.  The Fairmont Royal Pavilion is one of the leading hotels in Barbados. The beach here is stunning with powdery white sands and crystal clear waters.  The whole length of the beach is wonderful for swimming as the waters are almost always calm. It is also possible to take long walks along the beach.

There are also lots of dining options for lunch. The Fairmont has several excellent restaurants including Café Toboras and the Palm Terrace but it is also possible to take a short stroll along the beach to The Lone Star Restaurant which is one of our favourite on the island.  It does a wonderful lunch in a beautiful beach side setting. If you prefer something more casual, then Ju Ju’s beach bar is a great spot to relax, enjoy some good food and a rum punch. The other option for a day on the beach is Payne’s Bay. It is possible to hire sun beds and our guests love to walk along the beach in low tide to Sandy Lane. Payne’s Bay is one of the few spots on the island where you can swim from shore and feed the turtles.

STAFF

When you stay at Stanford House, you will be really well cared for by the professional team. Our wonderful butler will be on hand to ensure you stay is memorable and there is an excellent cook, maid and laundress and a security guard between the months of December to April.

Customer Reviews

Hi Yvonne,
Stanford house was wonderful! The staff were brilliant and everything went smoothly. The concierge service was also very useful. We would not hesitate to recommend the property and would like to think that we can return one day.
Thank you for your help in sorting the holiday for us.
Best wishes

What our Experts say

Stanford is a hidden gem. It's just a couple of mins drive from the coast & offers guests a real haven..there's so much space & the views are simply spectacular. The swimming pool is huge so great for families.. I particularly loved relaxing in the gazebo with a morning coffee or a rum punch watching the sun sets. Our butler was also lovely & could bring us down to the beach & collect us..a really nice touch..
