A lovely villa on Polo Ridge with panoramic views of the Caribbean. Surrounded by tropical gardens it is ideal as a wedding venue or as a luxury holiday home for family and friends.
Stanford House is constructed on one level and offers spacious accommodation of exceptional comfort for up to ten people. The property is particularly well suited to outdoor living and entertaining with a large terrace incorporating a fully equipped bar and lounge seating area. Straight off the terrace, the pool deck offers a large infinity edged swimming pool designed to allow relaxed enjoyment of the views. Fully air conditioned throughout, the generous accommodation comprises: a central reception area which is accessed through an open walkway, front porch and entrance hall, a large open plan lounge, powder room, five en suite double bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and a media room with 60" plasma TV with surround sound, satellite TV, DVD player, Sony Play Station and wireless internet access.
A spectacular eight foot aquarium separates the lounge and media room. Access to the pool terrace is directly from the lounge and offers delightful views and sunsets. The spacious master bedroom suite incorporates a seating area, 42" plasma TV, dressing room and air conditioned bathroom. The fixtures are modern and include a Jacuzzi tub and large walk-in shower.
There are three other guest bedrooms in the main house, all with en-suite bathrooms and generous wardrobes. In the garden is a self-contained guest cottage with private terrace and views of the west coast. Off the kitchen is covered parking for two cars along with a generous parking area. Outdoors there is a large Jacuzzi set within it's own pool, a dining gazebo, self contained covered barbecue area with full wet bar and a further seating area beneath a domed gazebo imported from Italy covered with sparkling fairy lights, all complemented by stunning water features, statues and sun loungers.
Extending to over one acre, wonderfully tranquil and lush gardens surround the property and mature palms further accentuate the unmistakably tropical environment. The pool and surrounding terraces form the focal point of the gardens with water features, Romanesque gazebo, outdoor dining gazebo, large covered wet bar and Jacuzzi.
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.
The above prices include local taxes and service charges where applicable. As the Barbados Government is currently changing the way it taxes rental properties, we will reconfirm all prices at the time of booking. A security deposit of US$2000 will be required on arrival.
Weddings with up to 50 guests are possible at Stanford House with an event fee equivalent to one night's rental.
