The Great House


Description

The Great House Barbados is a brand new exquisite 12-bedroom beachfront mansion sleeping up to 30 people. Having undergone a complete refurbishment and renovation which has taken place over two years, the New Great House is now most definitely one of the greatest and most luxurious vacation rentals in the Caribbean if not the world.

The original colonial round house’s beautiful exteriors have been retained as well as the incredibly lush and exquisite landscaped gardens. However, the interiors of the house have all been completely upgraded for the modern discerning traveller. The result is a classical and romantic mansion reminiscent of a bygone era combined with the last word in luxury and modern facilities. The Great House brings Barbados vacation Rentals to a whole new level. Lush greenery surrounds the entire house offering pristine beauty and extreme privacy.

The Great House Barbados has its location on over two acres of lush landscaped tropical gardens. The stunning seaside property occupies 105m of beach frontage and boasts 6435sq metres on the seaside of the property and 3780sq metres on the land side of the property. There are two distinct and equally exquisite parts at The Great House. On the beachside is the main house with 12 bedrooms, swimming pool, private beach coves, dining pavilions, library, beach bar, living areas and beachfront gardens. On the other side of the road is The Zen Garden area. The Zen Gardens are less than one minutes’ walk from the main house. These gorgeous and peaceful gardens are home to most of the entertainment facilities of The Great House. The fully equipped gymnasium, beauty salon, all-weather tennis court, children’s play area, conference room and cinema all have their location here.

The second one enters the vast gates of The Great House; there is a realization of being somewhere exceptional indeed. The main entrance hall leads onto a vast open reception room, a living room with grand piano, a library, a bar and the main dining pavilion. Each of the exquisite rooms has highly polished teal and mahogany wood floors leading directly onto the tropical gardens, infinity pool and beach. The open architecture of the house beautifully captures the inherent natural beauty of the island of Barbados. The distinction between indoor and outdoor living spaces is seamless. This open design also maximizes natural light and allows the cooling trade winds to flow through the house. The views from each of the living areas to the gardens, beach and the sparkling Caribbean Sea are breathtaking.

The décor of this great house is extremely plush with haute couture bespoke furniture offset with magnificent artworks found in only the most exclusive private homes in the world. There is a beautiful blend of Balinese and Bajan spirit creating a unique relaxed sophistication.

There are lots of places to enjoy delicious meals prepared by the chef and his team. The main dining pavilion is perfect for evening time and group gatherings while the beachside gazebo is the perfect location for a more casual bite, afternoon tea or cocktails.

There is a fully equipped professional kitchen which is the domain of the chef and assistant chef. There is also a fully stocked guest kitchen which clients can avail of at any time of the day or night should they wish to help themselves to a snack or refreshing drink.

There are 2 boats included with The Great House for the enjoyment and recreation of you and your guests. There is a 33’regal called Halcyon Daze which is for cruising or fishing and the gas is charged as used. The boat has a grill, fridges etc. The other boat included with this property is an 18’ Boston Whaler which is used for watersports.

THE BEACH
The Beach at The Great House is one of the quietest and most private beaches on the island of Barbados. The beach is known locally as Turtle Beach and has crystal clear waters and soft white sands on one side and a lovely reef ideal for snorkelling on the other. Above the watermark are two small completely private coves with sun loungers where one can relax in complete seclusion. Coconut palm trees line the beach providing natural shade from the Barbados sun. An extensive full-service beach bar and barbeque have their location beside one of the private coves. Enjoy a tropical cocktail, refreshing fruit punch or anything that takes your fancy served by one of the beach attendants.

THE GARDENS
The gardens at The Great House are an absolute delight. Four full-time gardeners are on hand to lovingly attend to the almost 2 acres of lush tropical gardens. The gardens have their location in two sperate distinct areas.

The beachfront gardens are mature and full of swaying coconut palms and sweet-smelling bougainvillaea and frangipani trees. Fishponds filled with water lilies and thousands of colourful tropical flowers intersperse the Extensive rolling lawns. Pretty wooden bridges cross the water features. Huge mature trees are dotted around the gardens and surround the vast infinity swimming pool. The gardens also have two private beach coves which lead directly onto Turtle Beach. At the end of the garden is a beachside gazebo which is the perfect place to enjoy lunch, breakfast, sundowners or pre-dinner cocktails.

The Zen Gardens have their location on the opposite side of the road. It is less than a minutes’ walk from the main house. As the name suggests, the moment one step inside the gardens, a feeling of peace and serenity envelopes. At the rear of the Zen Gardens, there is a myriad of organic herbs and vegetables. The Great House Chef chooses the best seasonal produce each day for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

ENTERTAINMENT
Of course, relaxation is the number one activity at The Great House. Guests love to enjoy the gorgeous infinity pool and beach area spending time reading books, chatting and absorbing the incredible view. There is a fabulous cinema for anyone wishing to see the latest blockbuster or catch up with some sport. Moreover, for pampering, there is a full range of beauty and massage treatments may be arranged.

The home offers every imaginable facility and activity for those who like to keep active and fit on vacation.
With the house’s incredible location directly on the beach and sea, watersports are very popular. Everything is possible. Swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, jet skiing, water skiing, kayaking, sailing and swimming with turtles are either available on site or can be arranged by the team at the house.

The gymnasium at the house is enormous and full of the latest and most UpToDate equipment available in the world. Even the most discerning of gym-goers will be impressed.

There is a floodlit all-weather tennis court. Tennis lessons are available on request.

Other activities such as golf, horseracing, surfing, kite surfing and hiking can all be arranged either in advance by the Exceptional Villas team or after arrival on the island by The Great House team.

Barbados is both beautiful and full of culture with much to explore and see. Again, the Exceptional Villas Team and The Great House Team can both arrange excursions and tours of the best parts of Barbados.

SUSTAINABILITY
The Great House takes sustainability very seriously and is one of our most Eco-Friendly Villas. There is a very sophisticated double water filtration system in place. Each guest is given an eco-friendly reusable water bottle during their stay at the house and can refill it at any of the water stations located throughout the house.

Besides, the house has a cutting-edge recycling process to ensure that there is little waste and everything possible reused. The team at The Great House are passionate about the environment and have introduced a reef preservation programme which includes a new groin. Reef friendly sunscreens are available for guest use for the duration of stay. Last but not least, organic produce grows in the house’s gardens providing the ultimate in low emissions farm to table experience.

DINING AT THE GREAT HOUSE
Food is taken very seriously at The Great House. Some of the fresh produce and ingredients are grown in the home’s organic garden providing a perfect farm to table experience.

The head chef alongside several assistants cooks breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner each day. Breakfast includes everything from fresh fruit and pancakes to smoked salmon, bacon and locally produced eggs. Lunch and dinner include an ever-changing array of dishes composed from the freshest and best ingredients available. Afternoon tea is one of the highlights of the house. Wherever possible the chef cooks with local ingredients. These include locally caught fish, lobster and seasonal tropical fruit and vegetables. West Indian recipes are adapted, and classical dishes are given a Barbadian twist. The result is a culinary experience that combines the flavour of Barbados with the best in the world.

Throughout the day, the guest kitchen is available and fully stocked with fresh fruit, ice cream, cookies and a large variety of snacks.

The chef consults with all guests on their likes and dislikes as well as any foods to avoid before arrival and during the occupation of the house.

WEDDINGS AND SPECIAL EVENTS
The new Great House is one of the perfect beachfront locations for a wedding or small special event anywhere in the Caribbean or even in the world. The beachside location, tropical gardens and traditional colonial architecture lend themselves to every kind of special occasion.

The lush tropical gardens, soft white sands and clear turquoise waters each provide stunning backdrops to perform wedding vows. There is a classic elegance to the home, which is reminiscent of a bygone era which is sure to add wonderful romance to the occasion.

The house can comfortably accommodate up to 30 people and can cater for a wedding or special event for between 50 and 60 people. Should you need to accommodate more than 30, there are two luxury accommodation options within walking distance of The Great House. Saint Peters Bay Resort and Goddings Beach House have their location a short stroll down the beach.

The Great House team, which consists of 22 people, will do everything in their power to ensure that every detail of your special day is organized to perfection. Everything is possible from photographers, videographers, drone footage, beauty treatments, hairdressers, makeup artists, florists, and musicians.

We truly had the vacation of a lifetime. The Great House is incredible. Every detail is thought of and the facilities are the last word. But asides from the luxury, the staff are also amazing.

Beachfront Elegance

Expert Review Pic We were very lucky to view The Great House on our last trip to Barbados. They were putting the final touches to an extensive refurb that took over 18 months to complete. What we now have is one of the islands most sought after luxury villa rentals… it's simply amazing!!! It's on the cusp of a powdered white sandy beach, manicured gardens, wonderful attentive staff and fabulous facilities. We are so excited to share this with all our guests and help to create everlasting memories with a stay here. I can highly recommend The Great House.
