Welcome to Smugglers Cove 4 by Exceptional Villas, one of the most exquisite developments located directly on the stunning beach at Paynes Bay in St James, arguably the best in Barbados.

It is also ideal for strolling to the very exclusive Sandy Lane Hotel which is approximately 10 minutes away.

In addition, there are several really excellent hotels including Treasure Beach, The House, and Tamarind Cove which all have excellent Restaurants and water sports facilities around the corner. Positano's and The Cliff Restaurants are also within walking distance. Holetown is very close by where you will find an excellent selection of both local and designer shopping. The area is also famous for its incredible selection of stunning ocean side restaurants. Golf is available close by at both Sandy lane and Westmoreland Courses.

This luxury 3 bedroom ultra-luxurious and modern villa offers the most incredible views of the pristine white sandy beach and sparkling azure sea beyond.

Smugglers Cove 4 nestles in the most exclusive part of the Island neighboring the Sandy Lane Hotel with its Golf courses and Spa along with some of the most luxurious properties in Barbados. In addition, some of the best ocean-front restaurants are just a short walk away. The sheltered beach is always calm and safe for swimming. Turtles can often be seen a few meters offshore for those more adventurous and wishing to snorkel in the crystal clear waters.

Smugglers Cove 4 is an exceptional, 3 bedroom fully air-conditioned beachfront property that has been designed to comfortably accommodate 6 people.

Synonymous with the architecture and aesthetic of the entire development- Smugglers Cove 4 is immaculately designed. Classic Caribbean Architecture in conjunction with bold dramatic pieces and every modern convenience provides the best of both worlds for those looking for the perfect luxurious Caribbean Retreat.

The covered Terrace itself is enormous with a beautiful sitting area ideal for relaxing, reading a book, enjoying the incredible views, or chatting with friends or family. It is also the perfect place to enjoy pre-dinner drinks, admire the incredible sunsets which are so often a feature in Barbados, or enjoy a meal amongst friends.

Morning walks along an almost deserted beach are a wonderful way to start the day. On your return, you will be greeted by the aromas of the lovely cook preparing breakfast.

The day can encompass a variety of adventures from sunbathing or reading on your personal lounger on the beach to watching the comings and goings of beach life. For the more active, you will be able to participate in many of the sporting activities provided by local vendors.

Before the day is done you can take a swim with the turtles that inhabit the bay or snorkel through the coral found only 100 feet away. Sunsets are best enjoyed sitting on the large terrace, sipping on your favorite cocktails, and enjoying some appetizers that will be graciously prepared by the lovely cook.

Golf can be arranged at the world-famous Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland courses. Shopping is only minutes away in Holetown; and fishing or sailing excursions leave from the Island’s capital Bridgetown every day.

Smugglers Cove 4 comes with your own housekeeper and cook 6 days per week. There is also a friendly concierge available Mon - Sat to organize any trips you might want to take locally. On the beach, there is a beach attendant on hand who lays out sun loungers & umbrellas for guests each morning. If you should decide to leave the sanctuary of your home, you will find an incredible selection of world-class ocean-front restaurants just a couple of minutes away.

Smugglers cove 4 also provides night time security and there is a lovely communal pool and sun deck in the gardens that is shared with just 6 other properties. If you are looking for a guaranteed holiday of a lifetime Smugglers is the place to be.

Service was excellent
Service was excellent

Hi Julie, Our time all went well at Smugglers Cove and the housekeeper Kerrie Ann was excellent. All the arrangements went well and your service was excellent. We would stay at Smugglers again but perhaps try a larger apartment.. Steve and I particularly enjoyed being in an apartment and it was good to try should we wish to spend a longer time in Barbados in the winter. The beach staff were also very helpful and efficient. The location is very good and the swimming area lovely.

Dear Julie & Yvonne,
I just wanted to send a quick note to say Thank you for the fantastic apartment you arranged for us in Barbados. Everything about Smugglers Cove was fantastic, the apartment, the location, the staff. Krystal and Althea were very helpful, polite and really did make our trip very special. Julie everything went to plan from the airport fast track and transport to all our restaurant reservations so I really appreciate your support and communication with all these requests. I just wanted to personally thank you for all your help. Look forward to booking with you again soon, Jessica

Great attention to detail
Great attention to detail

Exceptional Villas - and Yvonne and Julie in particular - were wonderful regarding our recent trip to Barbados. I asked Yvonne and two other reps of the same villa and another one a whole set of questions regarding the place, and she was by far the most attentive, diligent and accurate in her answers. The arrangements for our arrival were beautifully executed, with great attention to detail, including Customs, making sure we knew where we were going, arranging for dinner to be waiting when we arrived, orienting us in the villa and the building and so forth. I don't think I have ever felt so pampered. The added value of Exceptional Villas and the people who took care of us (Krystle, Roslyn, and Lana particularly) made the price well worth it

Great beach vacation
Great beach vacation

We had a ball at Smugglers Cove! No.4 is just on the 1st floor so we enjoyed the ocean views while having breakfast. Our cook was a lovely obliging lady & kept the villa spotless. My sister loved walking the beach while I loved relaxing on the sunloungers! We ate at Cin Cin & The Tides - both excellent. Holetown is only a few mins away on the yellow bus - what an experience!

We just loved Smugglers Cove #4! I don't often say it but it exceeded our expectations! The pictures just don't do it justice.. We loved this spot right on the beach & were so well looked after by the beach butlers. All the staff were so kind to us. Thanks Julie for all the concierge help - Lana was great at the concierge desk at Smugglers too. Oh the views! so perfect. We really hope to return. Many thanks.

Amazing right on a beautiful beach

Expert Review Pic I absolutely loved staying at Smugglers Cove! The villa offers safety, comfort, a beautiful ocean and sunset's view and it is located right on Paynes Bay Beach which is such a beautiful and peaceful beach to swim and relax. It was also so great to have the lovely cook who was preparing great food for us every day. I highly recommend this place for a wonderful stay in beautiful Barbados.

Beautiful location

Expert Review Pic Smugglers Cove 4 is the perfect combination of stylish and comfortable, ideal for families or a group of friends. Beautiful location on the amazing Paynes Bay Beach. Enjoy the crystal blue waters and sun loungers set out on the beach for you each morning. You can look forward to the best sunset views from your terrace whilst sipping on a cocktail or enjoying your evening meal.

Love it!

Expert Review Pic Smugglers Cove 4 is really gorgeous. I'd highly recommend to families or friends/couples travelling together.. it represents real beachfront luxury. The terrace is huge - such a wonderful space to relax with amazing seaviews - the water is so pristine here! There are TV's in all the bedrooms and the furnishings & bathrooms are really high end. Otteen is the lovely housekeeper/cook - she takes great care of everyone. Also worth noting there's a great beach service provided by David & Stephen, 24 hour security & a delightful concierge lady called Lana onsite to assist guests with everything from restaurant bookings to day trips etc...she's a mind of information!

A wonderful villa

Expert Review Pic Smugglers Cove no 4 is one of the nicest 3 bedroom units at Smugglers. The views and location are unbeatable. The sitting area has doors that lead out to the terrace and here is where you can enjoy a wonderful breakfast overlooking the beach and watching the world go by. I particularly like the decor used in this villa. It uses striking reds and wonderful Caribbean colours. The villa is modern yet cosy and is located on the 2nd floor. The beach butler David is always on hand to look after you.
