Barbados villa expert

Know Before You Go...

One acre of tropical beauty and privacy are the hallmark of the gorgeous Stanford House. Readers rave about the custom Italian gazebo by the water, and the state-of-the-art electronics that will keep any teenager happy. A wet bar and jacuzzi will make the grown-ups equally as happy, as will the spectacular views of the West Coast and the Caribbean Sea.
