Top-grade Caribbean Living in Barbados


Barbados is a favourite eastern Caribbean nation with a solid reputation for sun, sea and sophistication. The small island has a long history of welcoming visitors and an impressive social and cultural calendar that includes golf, polo, horseracing and performing arts. 

Its established infrastructure includes five-star hotels and acclaimed waterfront restaurants right through to laid-back beach bars. That variety extends to its beautiful coastline, which takes in the robust Atlantic surf on the East Coast and the tranquil Caribbean waters on the prestigious West Coast.

Just inland from these golden beaches, many sporting and leisure resorts were created such as Royal Westmoreland Estate with homes built around lush golf courses with extensive facilities – swimming pools, tennis courts, gyms and spas. As well as offering something to keep all generations happy and potential rental returns, these gated resorts appeal to owners looking for a hassle-free holiday home.

“Almost all international buyers are after a beachfront property, one with a sea view or to be located within the ever sought after gated estates,” comments Andrew Blandford-Newson from Knight Frank. “Most second homeowners place their properties into the rental market to cover off annual costs and with the intention of yielding attractive returns”. Rental demand is highest between December and February, but as temperatures rarely fall below 23°C, Barbados provides year-round appeal.

Also located on the Royal Westmoreland Estate is Monkey Manor. A top-grade villa in a commanding location on Palm Ridge, making it a firm favourite with families and sports lovers. Its splendid leisure facilities include a much-loved 18-hole Robert Trent Jones-designed golf course, tennis courts, fitness centre, swimming pools and a beach club nearby on Mullins Beach. 

However if you own Monkey Manor you may not want to leave your home at all. This elegant villa, ideal for entertaining family and friends, has been expertly finished with an impressive roll call of design expertise. There is a Miele kitchen, furnishings by Kohler and Hansgrohe and a top-range Sonos sound system. Stylish contemporary finishes including marble flooring combine with Caribbean flourishes such as coral stone rendering to keep a true sense of place. The main villa has five-bedrooms with a further two in a self-contained guesthouse. Outside, the one-acre grounds have a gardener’s cottage and a delightful 50-foot swimming pool.

Monkey Manor is on the market for US $6,000,000 with Knight Frank. For more information, visit knightfrank.com/rsi200147; email Andrew.Blandford-Newson@knightfrank.com or call +44 20 3967 7114.
