Coco House is a beautifully designed villa with a unique, breathtaking sea view (plse see reviews). Situated within the private 60 acre Sugar Hill Resort you can enjoy landscaped gardens, the choice between the infinity or waterfall pool, other facilities ( tennis, gym) and the ease of having a club house with a well reviewed restaurant . Coco House is the perfect base for a holiday in Barbados, a lovely place to relax yet well placed for Barbados' most well known beaches and attractions.

The space
When we bought the house the architecture of the house and the view are what we fell in love with. The high vaulted ceilings, plantation shutters and use of local coral stone and marble make it aesthetically a real pleasure to be in and to look at. It's a bright and airy house. The wide balcony juts out and looks out over a 180 degree view of the Caribbean Sea and because you’re up, not directly on the beach, you really get a panoramic view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets (see reviews). We're lucky that there are no houses directly infront of the house so we have wonderful sunset and sea views.

The other pluses for us are the fact that Sugar Hill offers the amenities of a hotel together with the freedom of being in your own space. So tennis lessons, flood lit courts, a gym and restaurant and reception to book taxis etc are on your door step or a phone call away. Also, if you have children, the 24/7 security means we have always felt safe letting our children run off to tennis lessons or wander back from the pool.

The beach, Alleyne's Bay is your local and well known for the turtles that live there as well as the well known beach bar Jujus and the glam Lone Star restaurant. It's a two minute drive down the hill to get there, or if you feel more energetic a fifteen minute walk. We have a kayak with oars and roof straps and a surf board you're welcome to use.

In the main house there are two large bedrooms (with en suite marble bathrooms - a shower and bath in the main bathroom, a walk in marble floored shower ensuite to the second bedroom) with French doors that lead onto the terrace and the good sized plunge pool and private garden. The furniture in the house is a mix of Asian, dark wood and white furnishings.

The cottage, a stone's throw from the house, has a double bed, marble bathroom with walk in shower and kitchenette (fridge, kettle, cafetiere ). The cottage is opened when more than four adults are staying. The second bedroom in the house can easily house three single beds or we can exchange two single beds for a king size bed.

There are two pools - the waterfall pool, which is a one minute walk from the house and the clubhouse pool , an infinity pool, which has a great view of the West coast and is a 2 min walk away from the house. Next to the pool is the club restaurant – a huge plus to Sugar Hill. If you’re too tired to cook you can head there or they can sort out a takeaway for you. There is nothing nicer after a game of tennis or finishing yoga, sitting out at the bar at Sugar Hill or the balcony of Coco House , having a glass of rose and watching the sunset! There are four floodlit championship tennis courts in the grounds, a fully equipped gym and yoga/pilates classes at the clubhouse.

As mentioned, being on the Sugar Hill estate means you have all the advantages of a hotel, without actually being in one. Sugar Hill is a 60 acre private estate with 24/7 security, which only really gets press when one of its higher profile owners is in town, apart from that it doesn’t self promote and it’s a very laid back place, with wonderful landscaped gardens. The gardeners keep if looking beautiful (lots of frangipani, coconut tress – if the trees infront of our house have ripe coconuts, the gardeners will happily cut some off for you for coconut water, we also planted a mango tree to the left of the house, you're welcome to pick them!). The staff are really helpful – the ladies at reception/concierge at the club house (again, a beautiful, large plantation style house made out of coral, marble and deep mahogany floors) will happily help you organise your holiday, whether it’s a question of booking taxis or restaurants.

Sugar Hill is close to the hustle of Holetown (5 mins drive) and the shabby chic of Speightstown (10 mins drive). Holetown, apart from all the normal amenities you need, has the celeb hangout Second Street where you can party the night away and the state of the art Limegrove cinema and lifestyle mall for glitzy, duty-free shopping, cafes, good restaurants and a few bars which gets busy on a Friday night - Friday night is party night in Barbados. Speightstown has small, tucked away restaurants where you can watch classic black and white movies on the beach and enjoy a quiet more laid back evening, the Orange Street Grocer is one of our favourites for lunch. Fish markets are close by at Paynes Bay and Speightstown.

We have put together a PDF that includes our recommendations for beaches, restaurants and things to do and places to visit on each coast. And if you have anything in particular you’d like to do and would like some advice, our property manager and I can help you .

If you feel like some pampering and visiting a bit of Barbados old glamour, the grande dame, The Sandy Lane is a five to ten minute drive away. The Spa at the Sandy Lane is considered the best on the island (I've been there and it's a real treat!) and we also have a mobile massage company who can come to the house. Sandy Lane, Westmorland and Apes Hill golf courses are all near by .

If you feel like visiting the other coasts, it’s a easy trip to the wilder, Atlantic side (you go over the highlands from Sugar Hill), it takes about fourty minutes to the surfer’s go to, Bathseba. Boogie boarding at The Crane is again, down the Highway, about 40 mins away. FYI all beaches are public in Barbados.

I'd almost go as far to say it's a must to rent a car in Barbados as the pubic transport system isn't as direct or as punctual as it could be and there are a huge variety of things to do and see all over the island, they aren't in one localised place. There is never a problem parking, it's all very relaxed.

I hope that gives you a flavour of the house and the area. There are a huge variety of things to do and places to visit, whether you’re a couple or family. If you'd like any further info, please feel free to email or message me.

P.S Our house manager can organise a cook and baby-sitter if required. To ease you into your stay housekeeping will leave you with a three day starter supply of basics : dishwasher tablets/washing up liquid/bin bags/toilet roll etc. Salt, pepper and oil are there for your arrival and our property manager can also pre-stock the fridge prior to your arrival ( this is an extra charge ). We have a housekeeper who comes in once/twice per week depending on the number of guests staying at the house, if you would like further housekeeping or a washing or ironing service, this can be easily arranged with prior notice
(an extra charge applies to added housekeeping days).

Where you’ll be

Holetown, Saint James, Barbados

We are well placed for all coast visits. It's easy to travel inland, crossing over the mid brow of the island to the East for surfing and sightseeing, the North for trips to the Animal flower cave and Little Bay, the south for sailing and beginners surfing and the West (where we are) for calm beaches, great restaurants and turtle watching. Duty free shopping and restaurants are abundant in Holetown, incl. a fab cinema and a new large food superstore for easy shopping which carries UK and US brands.

Sugar Hill Estate is beautifully maintained and there's a very laid back feel to it. The owners of the houses in the estate are all shareholders , so it's very well looked after and the staff are friendly and helpful. The great thing is you're so close to the beach and the Holetown but somewhere laid back and really lovely.

Hi, I'm a TV producer and director. We moved out of London just over five years ago to give us all some breathing space - we've got 3 boys so space is crucial! We love the mix of being in the country yet close to London. While I love the peace of living in the country, London keeps me on my toes.
