Have you been yearning for an authentic seaside retreat? If that vision includes a stylish home tucked along the water’s edge but surrounded by lush tropical growth and optimal privacy, then the villa Shoestring is exactly the thing for you. Perched right along Gibbs Beach on Barbados, it is the epitome of a hidden island hideaway, and it is packed with an impressive amount of modern style, premium amenities and irresistible appeal.
It is a three-bedroom, contemporary built in a wonderfully unique manner. Enter by crossing the stone footbridge over the koi and lily pond and reach the Bali-inspired interior. The great room features sand colored marble floors and high, white ceilings. It uses an open floor plan that beautifully maps out a large media room, a welcoming lounge with bar, and huge floor to ceiling windows that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. Nearby is the formal dining suite that reflects the same Asiatic influences, creating a Zen-like calmness throughout, and you’ll feel this even in the large, open-air kitchen.
A gourmet space with island, breakfast bar and only top of the line appliances, it is yours to use as you like, but as the property is fully staffed with a housekeeper, private chef, laundress and on-call manager, you may just savor the delights of the surroundings and leave the cooking to the expert.
The entire property is surrounded by mature gardens and fitted with an array of lounging and dining spaces, both sunny and shaded. There is also the large terrace overlooking the sea, and this is fitted with a large Jacuzzi and outdoor lounge. The bedrooms also open to the views or the terraces. The first floor bedroom is a master suite with king bed and private terrace (where the Jacuzzi is located). There is a king suite on the upper level and a third king suite, and all have large, opulent baths.
Ideal for a group of very discerning travelers or a larger family, the villa Shoestring offers it all. Lush and verdant surroundings, a few steps to the white sands of the Platinum Coast of Barbados (and one of its most popular beaches), and yet it is also an incredibly private and luxurious retreat on its own. With the full staff and the beautifully designed and decorated spaces, it rates as one of the finest places to enjoy a holiday of any length when visiting the island.
