Summer House is a delightful home offering timeless elegance and traditional plantation style features, set across two storeys, within the well-heeled and prestigious Sugar Hill Resort on the glittering West Coast. Nestled among charmingly natural gardens offering a riot of tropical foliage, colour and the sounds of the ocean beyond, guests will enjoy the best of both worlds; a self-contained family home with its own outdoor spaces along with the world-class service level and facilities of the wider resort, and staff presence for a little additional pampering.
Entering this vivacious home, guests will immediately feel at their ease; the interiors blend quintessential Bajan influences along with European finesse and sea-side charm. Handsome proportions in the hallmark white-wash are offset by distinctive bottle green arched jalousie windows, with something of an Art Deco feel. Graciously, the indoors fuse naturally with the outdoor spaces; a chic balcony for dining al fresco with views of the canopy of tropical trees spreading to the coast, guests will feel as if they are dining on top of the jungle! As well as the sedate covered veranda, perfect for a refined afternoon tea in the local Bajan-British tradition.
Open plan living is stylishly executed, yet breezy and finished with a lightness of touch; comfortable sofas and all the contemporary entertainment options make for “downtime” whilst a dazzling white dining area is finessed with indoor plants, vivacious artwork, and accents of crimson across the soft furnishings. The outdoors offers a pool-side terrace, complete with loungers, a wicker lounge set - ideal for a rum cocktail or two in the evening and elegant parasols for reclining with a good book in the shade and cooling air of the trade winds. A simple, yet well-equipped kitchen offers an American fridge and top-range appliances, although guests have restaurants on site and the option of chef services.
Summer House has four bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, each offering serenity and tranquillity within an understated style, fresh whites and crisp cottons, accented with pretty splashes of colour such as fuchsia, dusty pink or soft golds. Ornate hand-carved four-poster beds and dressing tables, or silk lampshades and antique chaise longue add a real tone and colonial flair. Three of the bedrooms are in the main house with the fourth bedroom in a separate cottage in the garden complete with its own mini fridge and microwave.
Summer House is an effortless choice; a true home-from-home, offering a vibrant space characterised by understated luxury and natural charm, every comfort has been considered, within the spirit of Caribbean ease and with a nod to the local traditions, whilst five-star comforts and amenities are on its very doorstep.

Summer House is set on the exclusive “platinum coast,” the glittering West coast of Barbados which is known for its exclusive developments, fine sandy beaches with turquoise waters and colourful, historical towns.
This sumptuous property is located in the Sugar Hill Resort Community where guests have access to a Clubhouse, acclaimed restaurant, two swimming pools, and four championship tennis courts. Tennis stars such as Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki have played on these courts! The beach facility, Fairmont Royal Pavilion, is only a five-minute drive away, whilst the world-class Royal Westmoreland Golf Course is only 1.1 kilometres distance. This is one of the most prestigious corners of the exclusive west coast, whilst being a short distance to local life, trade and traditions.
Speightstown and Holetown, both a few kilometres distance, both offer abundant local flavour.
Holetown demonstrates a vibrant slice of local Bajan life as well as duty-free shopping. The Chattel village is a melting pot of artisans, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses provide a striking contrast to the colonial residences with their dazzling white coral facades and open verandas; the former are vividly coloured with fancy gables and gingerbread fretwork. The Chattel houses date back to plantation days; the small wooden shacks were designed to be movable, yet this didnt limit their decorative charm; finished in candy pinks and pistachio greens with pretty shutters and sloping roofs.
Speightstown is also known as “little Bristol” - this town offers evocative local life, fisherman casting their catch on the jetty, a distinctly nautical feel along with street vendors and eclectic dining options.
The islands capital, Bridgetown is known for its British colonial architecture and historical sites blending with colourful shopping, an abundance of sea-based activities and UNESCO world heritage status.
