Villa Banyan House, St James, Barbados. Villa Banyan House is a unique find in the coveted St. James area of Barbados. A five-bedroom retreat, it is only a short and easy walk to the nearest white sand beach, but with its long list of onsite amenities and services, many visitors will find all they need on the premises. For one, there is a full array of household staff, including a private chef to prepare two meals daily. There is also a team of housekeepers and grounds crews to ensure everything goes smoothly.
The villa features electronic gates and a lovely courtyard entrance, though the structure itself is relatively modest in appearance as a single-story, classic island bungalow. With its mature gardens and grounds, it is framed by a lush and verdant array of palms and native plants. Clearly designed as a spot for easy entertaining, it has a massive verandah that wraps most of the villa and a relatively open floor plan that encourages visitors to relax and enjoy the views and pleasant surroundings.
There is a main house as well as a cottage, and this is found at the far end of the swimming pool. A few short steps from the back of the house, it will quickly become a favorite destination for those paying a visit. It features the cottage and is flanked on two sides by a fully-furnished sun deck, while the other end features a charming pool house with a full outdoor kitchen, dining area, and lounge.
Back at the villa, however, many guests find themselves continually gravitating to the verandah and its different lounging and dining spots. There is a covered area gazing out towards the pool, and it is furnished with a bar for added fun. Just inside there are the shared living spaces that include the lounges, the formal dining room and the enormous, gourmet kitchen.
There are also five bedrooms, and each has been lovingly designed and decorated to offer a welcome retreat at any time. The master suite is in the main house and features a sitting area, private terrace to the garden and a large, ensuite bath. There are two additional queen bedrooms in the main house, and both are ensuite with garden access.
There is also the cottage with its two bedrooms. Both are ensuite with lovely views.
The Villa Banyan House is that rare find that offers a low-key but utterly luxurious experience of Barbados, and it is sure to become a fast favorite.
