Townhouse
With interior spaces inspired by New York lofts,12 ft high ceilings, huge rooms, and plenty of natural light, Hillside Villas at Limegrove is a unique Caribbean environment. With over 3,400 sq feet of internal space, over three floors, with three double bedrooms and bathrooms, the scale of this dream home is both large and luxurious. It incorporates, for instance, a plunge pool leading into the living area. The finest finishes and the quiet setting ensure that life here appeals to those interested in living well. The three bedrooms are air conditioned, the main living area is not, and a maid visits the property three days a week. The dramatic effect the house produces in terms of space and light includes open staircases and living on three levels. It's for this reason that we don't rent...With interior spaces inspired by New York lofts,12 ft high ceilings, huge rooms, and plenty of natural light, Hillside Villas at Limegrove is a unique Caribbean environment. With over 3,400 sq feet of internal space, over three floors, with three double bedrooms and bathrooms, the scale of this dream home is both large and luxurious. It incorporates, for instance, a plunge pool leading into the living area. The finest finishes and the quiet setting ensure that life here appeals to those interested in living well. The three bedrooms are air conditioned, the main living area is not, and a maid visits the property three days a week. The dramatic effect the house produces in terms of space and light includes open staircases and living on three levels. It's for this reason that we don't rent out to those with young children or those who are infirm or might have difficulty with the open plan nature of the villa. The photographs should help you decide whether this sort of modern open environment is for you. While the Villa is quiet and offers expansive living space it is also on the doorstep of Barbados' oldest settlement (Holetown in St James) - the site where the English first came ashore in 1627. Today Holetown is a heritage site and a compact but busy hub - the heart of the island's dynamic West Coast. The owners wanted a home that was large enough that they could spend a day kicking back without in anyway feeling claustrophobic, but also wanted to be able to walk to some of the best beaches, bars, restaurants, shops and amenities that Barbados can offer. That's what the Villa offers, uncomplicated easy living.You will therefore find the Villa is within easy reach of spectacular white sand beaches, golf courses, polo fields, world-class hotels, restaurants and shops of the Platinum Coast. And to top it the entire Villa is a two minute walk away from the wider Limegrove development, a Life Style Centre at the top end of Barbados's tourist offer in terms of shopping, cinemas, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The beaches, Limegrove, everything that Holetown has to offer is all just five minutes walk away.More

About the neighbourhood
Holetown Beach is closest to the Villa and a few moments walk from the house. It has crystal clear waters, calm sea conditions, very little undertow and white sand. There is a beach bar that does good rum punch, cold beer and simple bar snacks and the obligatory water sports, beach chair and umbrella rental. It's also a great spot to start a walk up the West Coast, across a range of superb beaches, following the newly created promenade that can take you as far as the fabulous Lone Star restaurant. A good point to turn around after an indulgent lunch or sundowner. In the evening you might want to start with a cocktail in the Limegrove Bar (and you may have started the day, next door in the 'Relish' Cafe which, we think, has the best coffee on the island). However we suspect you will wa...
