All the amenities of a resort in a home-like setting!

Overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Oceana is a four-bedroom estate villa on the prime location of Ocean Ridge in the gated community of Sugar Hill.

Sugar Hill is a 50-acre private community on the west coast of Barbados. The clubhouse has a 2,000-square-foot communal pool, the restaurant Sassafras, and an air-conditioned gym. There are four flood-lit, all-weather tennis courts and golf is available at Sandy Lane (10 minutes drive) and at Royal Westmoreland (5 minutes).

Secluded amid tropical trees and shrubs, including frangipani, bougainvillea, ginger lilies, banana, and coconut palms, Oceana maximizes the benefits of its superb position with the enjoyment of tropical living.

The internal design has curved doors and windows in natural wood reflecting a cloister-like ambiance within the coral stone walls. The matching jalousie shutters throughout the house add a further touch of refinement, and provide a cooling sea breeze in the living areas to complement the ceiling fans. There are three bedrooms in the main house, with the fourth in a separate self-contained cottage on the grounds. All bedrooms have air-conditioning, ceiling fans, walk-in closets, and en-suite bathrooms with marble throughout.

The living room opens out onto the covered terrace through two sets of French windows. Beyond are the large pool deck, the gardens, and the azure sea. On the right, the hall leads to the lower bedroom wing with its own hallway and door for additional privacy and quietness. Across the hall is a twin bedroom, where the beds can also be arranged as a king-size, with a private patio. At the end of the hallway is the Queen Bedroom Suite, with sitting area, which opens through French windows onto both the pool deck and the covered terrace.

The tower, reminiscent of a medieval bell-tower, is a feature of the house with its high vaulted ceiling and ornate windows. At the top of the stairs, you enter the Master Bedroom Suite, with super king-size four-poster bed and separate dressing room. The en-suite bathroom has a large corner bath tub, a separate shower, and twin basins. Running the length of the Master Suite and approached through two sets of French windows is its private veranda, offering westerly views of the Caribbean Sea.

The partially open-air dining room looking out towards the sea is an impressive feature of the house, with its own internal garden and cathedral ceiling. The black granite dining table on carved coral pedestals is complemented by a matching built-in bar for cocktails as you watch the sun set on the sea.

Next to the house is the self-contained, air-conditioned, one bedroom cottage with en-suite bathroom, and separate kitchen. This can be configured as twin beds or king-size as required.

Guests of Oceana have the use of all the Sugar Hill amenities. These include a clubhouse with large pool, restaurant, fully-equipped, air-conditioned fitness center and members' lounge, as well as the first-class David Lloyd tennis facilities. Sugar Hill is a gated community with security guards both at the gate and on patrol 24 hours a day.
