The Great House Barbados
The Great House, Barbados is one of our favourite holiday rental homes in Barbados. It is more than just a holiday home. It is a stunning colonial home set in mature and majestic gardens set right on the beach on Barbados's west coast.
The Great House, Barbados really is a jewel to behold. With 8 double bedrooms and catering for up to 16 guests there are few holiday rental properties in Barbados able to rival this one.
Run by the very able Cressida Dawson who is assisted by a first class butler, Victor, and other incredibly efficient and polite staff this property runs like clockwork. The Great House, Barbados is perfect for those special parties, small weddings and other celebrations. The food is simply exquisite and there are so many lovely and diverse areas in which to dine.
Breakfast in the gazebo, dinner in the garden on a balmy evening or for a more formal occasion in the grand hand painted dining room which can seat up to 18 under its flickering chandeliers. If two of you feel romantic a table for two can be set up on the deck overlooking the sea. Dine as the sun sets watching and listening to the waves as they ebb and flow on the golden beach. So many beautiful locations to dine and so many wonderful dishes to behold.
The Great House, Barbados has recently been refurbished and is a grand, yet remarkably cosy, coral stone West Indian plantation house. It is nestled in mature, quiet gardens amongst swaying palm trees on the beachfront in the parish of St Peter.
