Hunter Cottage is one of only ten privately-owned villas in the colourful gardens of Castle Close Estate. This cottage offers a spacious living room with peaked ceiling, an adjoining dining room to seat eight, a lovely kitchen with moulded counter tops, and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer. An enclosed courtyard, accessed from the master bedroom, dining room, and kitchen, offers private alfresco dining.
There are three air-conditioned bedrooms, each equipped with ceiling fans and an ensuite bathroom. The master bedroom contains a king-size bed, and the bathroom has both a shower stall and a tub. One of the other bedrooms is furnished with a king-sized bed and the second with two singles. From a large terrace off the living and dining areas, the soothing sounds of a waterfall by the pool can be enjoyed. The private pool and deck are accessed off this terrace via a short wooden bridge. For those who prefer to sit around the pool in a shaded location, a pagoda has been added to provide some protection from the sun at one end of the pool deck.
Naomi, the cottage's housekeeper for the past twelve years, is there to take care of housekeeping needs such as changing and laundering of linens and cleaning of the cottage. She is experienced enough to familiarize you with the cottage and assist you without being intrusive, allowing you to relax completely and enjoy a real vacation.
For those guests who wish to try local dishes in the cottage, additional arrangements can be made for a cook.
There are several beaches within easy walking distance and the Crane beach and Bottom Bay beach, two of the most popular beaches on the South East coast of Barbados are five and ten minutes drive from the cottage respectively.
Like all of the Castle Close Villas, this cottage has been tastefully furnished, and the use of coral stone wall finishes and tropical hardwood floors make it a very appealing place to stay.
