With delightful accommodation set over a single storey and sitting within an acre of private gardens, Anchorage is a beautiful place to call home during your holiday to this beautiful part of Barbados. It’s part of the exclusive Sandy Lane Estate on the island’s western coast, meaning you have access to the Sandy Lane Beach Club and all its facilities and amenities.
Anchorage offers bright, modern spaces to enjoy both socialising and relaxing. The naturally beautiful surroundings are invited inside by the numerous doors and windows, creating a light and airy feel throughout.
The vaulted living room is the perfect place to appreciate just what an idyllic spot Anchorage occupies, with louvre shutters providing direct access to outside spaces. The large room features enough seating for everyone to get together and chat over drinks, before moving over to the stunning marble dining table, when dinner is ready to be served. You can also relax whilst keeping connected to the outside world in the adjacent television/office room. Here you’ll find a variety of channels to enjoy on the flat screen television and a fax/printer and broadband within the office area. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with everything you need to make and cook meals, but there’s also a housekeeper/cook on hand six days a week to prepare breakfasts and light lunches, with other meals available by arrangement. Your laundry will also be conveniently taken care of.
There are three beautiful bedrooms at Anchorage, with all benefiting from air conditioning. The master bedroom is very spacious and features a king size bed and an ensuite bathroom with shower. The second and third bedrooms have twin beds each, which can be zipped together to create king size beds. The third bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with shower and bathtub. There’s also a lovely family bathroom with shower and bathtub for all guests to use.
Directly accessed via the living room, the covered patio features a dining area for enjoying al fresco meals and a more casual space with outdoor seating. Wherever you sit, the views of the lush gardens that surround Anchorage are just lovely. There’s a diverse range of tropical plants and trees to spot as you stroll around the large plot and appreciate the work done by your dedicated gardener. The main highlight is the private swimming pool, which is surrounded by a selection of loungers for soaking up both the sun and the peaceful atmosphere.
Being part of the Sandy Lane Estate means that the beach and exclusive club facilities are just minutes away. Here you have use of your own cabana with a fridge and several loungers and chairs available. The onsite bar offers a range of drinks, snacks and lunches, so you can really make a day of it by the sea. The famous Sandy Lane Hotel is also adjacent to the beach. Sandy Lane Beach features a long stretch of golden sand, which is lapped by mostly calm waters that are ideal for swimming.
A great choice of restaurants and shops are within easy reach too, as well as a couple of golf courses for those keen players. When you want to explore a little further afield, there are plenty of charming places to visit that are just a short drive away.
Holetown is only 5 minutes away by car and has plenty to offer by day as well as by night. Stroll along the boardwalk to soak up the stunning scenes across the beach and sea, and then enjoy a beachfront dinner at one of the many restaurants. There are many bars and restaurants further inland also, guaranteeing fun and atmospheric evenings.
Less than 15 minutes away by car is Speightstown, which is one of the biggest towns and busiest ports in the whole of Barbados. There are several beaches to enjoy here, but also lots of interesting historical sites to explore and admire. These include beautiful buildings dating back to colonial times, such as the Arlington House Museum. You’ll really get a feel for the town’s vibe during weekends, when you’ll get to mingle with locals as they come out to shop and socialise.
