The Great House Barbados

The Great House, Barbados is one of our favourite holiday rental homes in Barbados. It is more than just a holiday home. It is a stunning colonial home set in mature and majestic gardens set right on the beach on Barbados's west coast.

The Great House, Barbados really is a jewel to behold. It has recently been completely renovated and various new buildings added. No expense has been spared and only the best architects and designers have been used.

With 12 double bedroom suites there are few holiday rental properties in Barbados able to rival this one. We think The Great House is one of the most luxurious estates in the Caribbean.

Run by the very able Cressida Dawson who is assisted by a first class butler and other incredibly efficient and polite staff this property runs like clockwork. The Great House, Barbados is perfect for those special parties, small weddings and other celebrations. The food is simply exquisite and there are so many lovely and diverse areas in which to dine.

WIth the right configuration The Great House can accommodate up to 30 guests.

Breakfast in the gazebo, dinner in the garden on a balmy evening or for a more formal occasion dine by flickering candlelight in the grand dining room. 

If two of you feel romantic a table for two can be set up on the deck overlooking the sea.

Dine as the sun sets watching and listening to the waves as they ebb and flow on the golden beach. So many beautiful locations to dine and so many wonderful dishes to behold.
