Castle-like, this coral stone villa with its palette of creams, soft yellows and beiges is a harmony of natural sand colours which compliment Barbados's exclusive West Coast beach front.
Rich in texture and classic architectural detail, the two storey villa, which is privately owned and run by professional staff, is also contemporary in its functionality.
Upon entering the villa there is an office on the left and a curved stairway on the right which leads upstairs to the bedrooms. There are three air-conditioned bedrooms and a master bedroom all with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has 'Direct TV', an adjoining kitchenette and, along with the adjacent guest bedroom, a terrace to exploit the spectacular ocean view.
African art combines with modern furnishings to create an ambience which suggests the coming together of worlds. Spacious living and dining areas, in summer hues, invite the light in and open onto a large patio with two additional dining areas and an outside bar.
There is a large crescent shaped pool and a small bridge leads over the pool from the outdoor patio onto a path. The path leads through tropical gardens, consisting of a number of palm trees, onto the beach - just a few steps away. A poolside games room with HiFi equipment is also equipped with Direct TV'.
Extensive coral reefs along the West Coast, New Mansions' backyard, are home to a number of indigenous exotic species for those who enjoy snorkelling and scuba diving.
It should be noted, however, that no children under the age of 12 are permitted, unless prior permission has been granted and they are accompanied by a nanny.
