Know Before You Go...

Modern design means a clean, fresh feel that you simply can not get with any other decor, and if you are ready to let that idea take over your next holiday, you are ready for Atelier Villa. A new property, architect Alistair Downie infused tranquility and serenity into every modern detail in this property. You are certain to see it in the glazed balcony of the master bedroom with its view of the ocean, and you will see it again when your gourmet-level kitchen and spacious living room open onto a balcony with an infinity pool. Complete with a garden that measures half an acre, this holiday rental is the ideal way to redesign your thoughts on the word vacation.

Atelier Villa sits on a ridge above the west coast of Barbados, offering a view of the ocean. Designed by architect Alistair Downie in close collaboration with the owner (who has also handled the interior design for a number of other projects on a global level), it was completed in 2012. It is finished with luxury materials including Portuguese limestone in the kitchen and bathrooms.

The villa includes four bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms. The upstairs master bedroom also has a glazed balcony with views of the sea and a covered outdoor terrace. The downstairs master bedroom extends as far as an enclosed outdoor shower area.

The living space offers many views of the outdoor terraces and the pool (32 x 27 ft), as well as the space between the villa and the Caribbean, filled with mahogany trees. There is also a large roof terrace, as well as a mezzanine study area that offers a view of the area.

Outside the property, you will find gardens planted with indigenous species of palms, lilies, bougainvillea, and many other flowering shrubs. The gardens measure 1/2 acre, and there is a secure gate on the premises to protect your privacy. You'll also find parking for several cars.

St. James is widely considered the jewel in the crown of Barbados, with unmatched white sandy beaches, high-end hotels, and dining that ranges from world-class restaurants to makeshift food stalls serving delicious local fare.

Other attractions and local activities include water sports, horse riding, the farmers' market at Holders, golf at Sandy Lane and Westmoreland, gully walks, and stunning beaches.
