Recently constructed, this contemporary beachfront villa is quite stunning and is a truly exceptional place to stay with family and friends.
Situated in the parish of St. Peter, on the West Coast this five-bedroom, luxury beach villa offers up to ten guests the ultimate in contemporary luxury. Stylish décor and clean lines work in harmony with the prime, beachfront location, offering the perfect retreat for rest and relaxation.
This luxury Barbados villa boasts a sleek and contemporary design - the work of local award-winning architects Gillespie & Steel - and uses some of the island’s most beautiful materials. The clever design brings the outside in, so you can enjoy incredible views of your infinity pool and the sea beyond from the comfort of your spacious, open plan living area.
Gated and private, the villa combines modern comforts with stylish living. From the Boffi kitchen and designer furnishings to the five en-suite bedrooms with sea-facing terraces, no expense has been spared to ensure a stay at Godings Beach House is truly special. There’s even a state-of-the-art gym, glass-walled study and home cinema room and water sports equipment. The main entrance with Holly Hunt consoles leads to the living area which is open plan and spacious with neutral tones, pale limestone flooring and an impressive local coral feature wall. Large windows make the most of the surrounding sea and pool views. The living and dining areas are furnished with designer pieces from the likes of Maxalto, Christian Liaigre and Ralph Lauren as well as a pair of B&B Italia sofas.
The stylish kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances, a large breakfast table and a wall-mounted TV. There are a few dining options to choose from. Dine inside, around the grand bespoke Whetstone Oak dining table, or al fresco, on one of two shaded dining areas for delicious lazy lunches or an evening BBQ under the stars. Your personal cook will be happy to tailor menus to your party’s preferences.
The house offers a glass-walled study, a state-of-the-art gym and a media room where film fans can enjoy access to every movie on iTunes and Netflix, streamed directly from their iPad or iPhone to a large cinema screen. These rooms boast stunning coastal art pieces by Nicola Bealing, from Cornwall, and Guy Leclef. Sonos is also available in all main rooms for music streaming. The sleek 25m mosaic-lined pool is perfect for early morning laps, surrounded by limestone tiles and comfy sun loungers where you can relax.
Godings Beach House sits in approximately 1.2 acres of landscaped gardens, featuring two shaded dining areas and a yoga pavilion. With plenty of spots to enjoy a perfectly mixed cocktail, palm trees and scented shrubs scatter the grounds, with a pebbled path leading directly to a protected beach. The property comes fully staffed by a team of professionals offering attentive, yet discreet service including a butler, housekeeper, gardener, cook and security guard.
Property owners tend to accept bookings over the Christmas and New Year period on stricter terms than at other times of year. In general, bookings are subject to a 14 night minimum stay but owners may require a 3 week booking in some cases and will often need to approve dates to fit with their own travel plans or those of other guests. A higher deposit of 50% of the total rental price is payable for such bookings and the balance becomes due earlier at 90 days before arrival.
All prices quoted above have been calculated based on information provided by the owners but are subject to confirmation during December and January as occasionally owners may insist on the higher Christmas rate being applied either side of the main Christmas period. We suggest you contact us for a firm price quotation at this time of year, before making your booking.
*Price subject to confirmation by property owner.
