Surrounded by palm filled gardens this wonderful house consists of three rectangular structures that date back to 1850 with evidence of its previous utilitarian life with iron wheels and large beams remnants of its past. One building, [Antigua] houses the living room, 2 kingsize bedrooms, a loft bedroom with a queen and a double and 2 bathrooms and a colonial kitchen. Opposite is another building [Nueva] where a dramatic central hallway is the entrance to 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all with soaring 26 foot ceilings and 13 foot high doors. The large master bedroom has a sunken living area, and outside within a walled garden is a seating area and plunge pool.

Between these two buildings is the open-air living room and dining pavilion, the loggia is surrounded by lily filled reflecting water ponds and dramatic lighting. From the loggia climb an enclosed spiral staircase to a rooftop lounge and star-viewing platform. Here you can watch the moon, stars, sunset, an approaching storm or enjoy the night breeze. Through a seashell mosaic tunnel from the inner courtyard you find the 40 foot pool. Once the water tank for THE RANCH! The freshwater pool is now a shimmering refuge from the heat of the Yucatan. A steel and bamboo pergola and a playita of shallow water with a hammock suspended above provide areas for rest and shade. Beyond the pool, in a hidden garden you find the regulation size bocce ball court, similar to the European Petanque!

Framing the entire Property are dry stacked stonewalls, tall hedges of Fica and Gabion walls of local limestone. The grounds are filled with exotic rare palms, bamboos, gingers, tropical plants and fruit trees. If looking for a property to celebrate a special occasion this has everything from space and ambience complimented by all the home help required to make it a perfect escape to remember.

The Home Escape THE RANCH Testimonials

“Great house, great location, great holiday”
We stayed at THE BAY on our 3rd trip to Barbados having stayed at Royal Westmoreland in previous years. We had high expectations given the photos and were not disappointed. As it turns out, the photos don’t do the house full justice. 

This is a unique house which we struggled to fault at all. In total we consisted of 6 adults and 2 kids and not once did we feel that we struggled for space. The house is very open and airy and set in a location which captures fantastic views and a nice breeze throughout the day and night. As the other reviews state you couldn’t get much better in terms of location. Short drive to Holetown one way and Mullins another short drive the other way. At the bottom of the hill is a great beach too. 

The Davidsons - THE BAY

Most spectacular views imagineable

It's unlike anything we have visited before; the property is a 4000 acre working sheep farm and to get to THE COVE - a modern glass-encased, open plan one bedroom home - you need to take the farm's own 4x4 about 45 minutes. The drive offers some of the most spectacular views imaginable so it's no hardship. Once at THE COVE we had the run of the property; it has a modern, industrial feel, with breathtaking views across a deserted bay popular with seals, gas fireplaces both inside and out, a modern kitchen for preparing the vacume sealed gourmet meals pre-delivered, a sleek bathroom with a deep soak tub, and an outdoor jacuzzi.

Best vacation ever

We had the absolute best vacation at this gorgeous property. Everything was perfect. I have rented many many houses and villas over the years and by far, was the most responsive and considerate of all that I have rented. Arranged for daily cleaning and a chef to come twice. The experience could not have been better and the house is even better than it looks in the pictures. Its a gorgeous, magazine-spread-worthy home. As a Senior Vice President at The New York Times i have travelled the world and was seriously impressed, we cant wait to return!
