Steeped in 1950s charm, this coral stone mansion was once the home of a United States Ambassador. Now – seventy years later – it’s ready to take you on the holiday of a lifetime, boasting a wealth of high-end amenities that’ll make your stay in Barbados one to remember. Step into the main house, where you’ll be greeted by an elegant living space complete with 14 feet ceilings and mosaic floors reminiscent of a classical Italian villa. This is the perfect place to be if you want to escape the heat, but if you’d rather be out and about, there’s 1.5 acres of lush gardens outside just waiting to be explored. Take a running jump into the beautiful, tiled pool or make a beeline for the private beach and while away the afternoon on the golden shore, cocktail in hand. When it’s time to eat, gather everyone around the patio table for a candlelit dinner prepared by your private chef followed by a glass or two of freshly made rum punch. We could easily spend all night out here, but if you’re ready to retire, there’s a king-size bed with your name on it. Change into your comfiest pyjamas, then snuggle under the covers and drift off to sleep. After a day like this, we wouldn’t blame you if you never wanted to leave.
