Know Before You Go...

Sunwatch at Sugar Hill is perfect for families with kids! Besides the usual television and video equipment, they'll find table tennis, table football, and basketball nets to keep them occupied. If they're swimmers, the pool is equipped with a slide that will give them hours of fun, or you can take them down to the beach to build sandcastles or look for shells and sea glass. While the kids are playing, if you just have to put in a few hours on the computer, there is an internet and fax hookup in the study. When it's finally time for the grownups, you can have a barbeque on the back patio and whip up some exotic island drinks at the bar while enjoying the sun setting over the sea.

Unobstructed views of the beautiful west coast

Set on two acres of landscaped gardens on a ridge directly overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Sunwatch is one of the finest villas in the Sugar Hill Resort Community. Designed by the renowned local architects Gillespie and Steel, and utilizing the natural features of the land contours and trade winds, this single story villa offers unobstructed views of Barbados's west coast.

Guests enter the house over a wooden bridge crossing a lily pond set in a garden-courtyard. The central part of the house is the main living area (with double-height vaulted ceilings) which opens out onto a covered terrace. Off of the living area is the bedroom wing to one side and the bar, kitchen, and dining terrace to the other.

The bedroom wing comprises of two master bedrooms and two twin bedrooms, all with individually designed en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and covered patios. The two master bedrooms have their own private dressing areas.

Adjacent to the living room is a large den, equipped with CD/VCR/DVD players, satellite TV and 42-inch Plasma TV linking to a speaker system which covers the entertaining areas both inside and out. The den is en-suite with steam shower and also has its own open patio. Opposite is a separate study/library with its own phone line. If you need to do some work, this makes it easy and private.

Outside you will find the fifteen meter, infinity edge pool, (with slide to the lower pool) along with the Jacuzzi, a pool gazebo with wet bar and informal dining space, and a built-in barbeque. The gazebo bar is the place to sit with an evening punch and watch the stars come out.

In the landscaped front garden is a detached two-bedroom cottage, with shower room and kitchenette, which will sleep four and is available for rental with the main house.
