Villa Daiana is a unique beach-front home which is filled with such light, bright tones and airy coastal ease that it is sure to make guests smile! The zingy, citrus palette and sixties touch give Villa Daiana oodles of character.
Set over two storeys, with three chic bedrooms, this home is the quintessential Caribbean bolthole, offering an easy, breezy informality, cooling sea breezes and the beach just a stroll away past the swaying palms at the end of the garden.
Outdoor living is executed at its finest, with a terracotta patio, funky striped loungers and brick-built barbecue leading to luscious green lawns with elegant parasols shading the refined dining sets, perfect for an afternoon tea or cocktail by sunset!
The dining pirate seats six and in classic local style features an outdoor lounge for that decadent touch, set under the sloping exposed mahogany porch.
When the Caribbean heat ramps up, the plunge pool will hit the right note. The open plan living spaces are unfussy yet home-like, with a simple yet luxurious dazzling white lounge set and dining area, whilst the kitchen is a glossy tangerine that pops against the steely, industrial charcoals and granite. In keeping with the tropical pops of colour, the upper terrace offers vivid lime green loungers under canary yellow umbrellas from which to enjoy sparkling sea views.
The three bedrooms are cool and restorative, graceful spaces, imbibing hints of colonial elegance, exposed dark-stain mahogany, four poster bed in the Master and hand-painted oriental screen in another.
This vibrant home is a radiant example of low-key luxury and sea-side pared down glamour; flamboyant colours for a playful touch and the iconic ‘platinum coast’ just a few steps away.
Villa Daiana is on the beach front at the historic town of Holetown, on the spectacular west coast of Barbados. The first English settlers landed at Holetown in 1627; today this bustling haven offers duty free shopping centres, green spaces, a huge array of international cuisine and mellow reefs ideal for snorkelling.
Holetown also offers a slice of local Bajan life. The Chattel village is a melting pot of artisans, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses provide a striking contrast to the colonial residences with their dazzling white coral facades and open verandas; the former are vividly coloured with fancy gables and gingerbread fretwork. The Chattel houses date back to plantation days; the small wooden shacks were designed to be movable, yet this didn’t limit their decorative charm; finished in candy pinks and pistachio greens with pretty shutters and sloping roofs.
The exclusive West Coast of Barbados, also known as the “platinum coast” for its pristine beaches and turquoise waters. Despite this region being developed with high-end hotels and stately private residences to an international jet-set, its coast remains one of the most beautiful Barbados has to offer. With the recent development of extensive boardwalks, visitors can enjoy spectacular sunset strolls with the glittering sea as their companion.
The west coast offers everything from rum cocktails at the bar to Thai cuisine or local Bajan fare. A culinary experience here takes influences from African, Caribbean, West Indian and European gastronomy for something a little unique. Known for its rum tradition, started circa 370 years ago, the island is brimming with tours of the world’s oldest rum.
Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element, from sailing to snorkelling, jet-skiing to kite-surfing, Barbados has it all. One of the greatest delights of this island is boarding the sparkling waters for a catamaran cruise, along with a decadent buffet meal and drinks.
St Nicholas Abbey is a magical, mystical spot, in the hills of St. Peter, offering over 400 acres of lush tropical overgrowth, impeccably manicured gardens, mahogany forests and undulating sugar cane fields.
Barbados is a place of contrasts, from movie-star hedonism to cane-cutting village life and artisanal fare; from fishing villages to dramatic, rugged Atlantic coastlines - visitors will enjoy a vivacious diversity within a very accessibly-sized island. A unique blend of vibrant, local life and colonial-influenced afternoon teas alongside cricket matches on the green!
