Beach Lover's Delight!!

Beachfront Bridgetown vacation home in Brighton, walk to Brighton Beach
Tantalus Villa, Brighton Beach, St. Michael, is a beachfront property along the West Coast of Barbados. The property consists of a main house with 2 separate flats, a three bedroom suite on the ground level, and a five bedroom suite on the upper two levels of the main house. The Upper Villa level of the building is a two-story 5 bedroom, five-bathroom dwelling with high quality coral stone finishing and flooring throughout. The total area is approximately 4200 square feet on the upper two levels with large balconies on two levels. The coral stone finishes are of a high standard with shell-stone flooring throughout the main rooms and passageways, and warm bleached pine ceilings in most of the bedrooms and each bedroom is fully air-conditioned and equipped with ceiling fans as well. The primary feature of the upper flat of Tantalus Villa is the large open living area overlooking the beautiful Caribbean sea. This is a beach lovers delight as the spacious balcony overlooks the beautiful sandy beach and the aquamarine Caribbean Sea. Brighton Beach itself is one of the top swimming/beachcombing areas on the west coast of Barbados and after enjoying your day on the beach or in the water, you are perfectly situated to watch another Caribbean sunset displayed in glorious color right from your balcony. Enjoy having your meals at a 12 place circular glass dining room table overlooking the ocean and just steps away from the large gourmet kitchen complete with all the amenities. All the doors and windows to the outside have full movable plantation shutters to allow the breezes and light to flow through. There are two bedrooms and a media room plus a laundry/utility area to the back half of the lower level of this two story suite, with a further three bedrooms and fitness room in the upper level. The master bedroom on the top level is a massive room with a private verandah and views over the pool and sea. It is a stunning room with the feel of living in a luxurious tree house and you may never want to leave. Alongside the house is a large rectangular pool with Roman steps at one end. The pool is mosaic tiled in a dark cobalt blue color that keeps it exceptionally warm throughout the year. The grounds are well developed with mature trees and shrubbery and there are over a dozen coconut and other palms along the beachfront for shade. There are separate beach access gates for the upstairs and main level flats, each with their own outdoor shower and lounging/seating areas. Brighton Beach itself, is a wide, calm beach ideally suited for all kinds of activity. The swimming and snorkelling is very good and you can jog or walk on uninterrupted on the sand for well over a kilometer in each direction. Other positive features are that the location is excellent for access to downtown, West Coast, Warrens and the ABC Highway. Brighton Road is just off of the Spring Garden Highway so the house is not on the main road and there are no buses or major truck traffic on your doorstep. The property also enjoys good breezes for most of the year as it is not in the shadow of the more elevated lands along the west coast. An ideal family residence in a quiet area with good security.

A wonderful week away
We had an amazing week at Tantalus. The property was beautiful with a pool and access to the beach. We had 4 families, all of which had their own space/room/bathroom. The kitchen had everything we needed. The hosts Heather and JP and their son were very welcoming and helpful in helping us learn about the island and how to get around. Thank you all for a wonderful week in Barbados!

4/5 Good

Beautiful Location
This villa is set directly on a beautiful huge stretch of beach. The views from the deck areas are spectacular. We especially enjoyed watching the sunsets and the cruise ships go out at night. We were a party of 9, and there was tons of room for us. We did have 1 small issue. The hot tub does not work, which was a bit of a disappointment, especially in December/January when the ocean and pool are the coolest. JP did tell us he has been working on to try to get it running, so perhaps inquire if this is important to you. We loved our frequent visits from the owners dogs. They are very sweet, and it was so funny how they always seemed to know when we were having dinner.......... ;)

Stunning stay at Tantalus Villa
Simply fantastic. Fabulous hosts. Awesome well equipped Villa and great team. Our group of 9, 4 adults, 2 teenage boys & 3 kids had a unforgettable two week stay. Great communication during the booking process and met by the owner, Heather on arrival and made to feel at home from day one. Neat, clean Villa that exceeded expectations. Great pool and Jacuzzi and beautiful golden sand beach just steps from the front door. Great snorkelling and crystal clear waters. Special thanks to all the team who made our stay comfortable, Andrea for keeping the Villa clean and tidy every day and to Shelly for cooking some great food for us and Mr Young who was on call throughout the night. Tranquil and safe area. As we leave we do so with heavy hearts but great memories and we already look forward to returning soon. Finally thanks to Heather and JP, the owners and congratulations on your 35th wedding Anniversary. Thanks for letting us stay, for taking such good care of us and for letting the kids look after you lovely little dog Vino. All the best to you all and thanks again, great memories.
