We finished building Tara in 2011 as our families home away from home when visiting Barbados. We hope that you, our guests, will enjoy the home as much as we do.
Tara is a tastefully furnished three story, four bedroom, four bathroom villa located in Sunset Crest, St. James, Barbados. A charming community next to prestigous Sandy Lane Estate within walking distance to beaches, supermarket, restaurants, bar/nightclubs and retail shopping on the famous West Coast of Barbados at Holetown. In addition, Tara is minutes from the new Lime Grove Mall with its fabulous designer retail stores, duty free shopping, restaurants and entertainment spots.
The master bedroom has a king size bed, two others have queen size beds and one has two twin beds. Each bedroom is air conditioned and equipped with a safe for securing valuables. All of the windows at Tara are screened so that if you prefer, you can enjoy the lovely Caribbean breeze wafting across Tara in the evenings. On the main level, double French doors open onto a lovely covered patio, sundeck and pool together with a covered gazebo area, perfect for relaxing during the day or enjoying a cocktail at sunset. Dining can be indoors or out with seating in the indoor dining room or outside under the covered patio next to the pool.
Tara is well equipped with air conditioning in all bedrooms, wireless internet, iPod dock and TV’s in three of the bedrooms as well as a large screen TV located in the media room adjacent to the fourth bedroom. Tara is beautifully and meticulously landscaped with a bountiful tropical garden lovely to look at and a source of privacy at the property.
In addition to the pool located on site and a short walk to the beach, during your stay at Tara you will have access to the 50 foot swimming pool, beach and tennis courts (at owner rates) owned by the Sunset Crest Property Owners Association (SCPO) of which we are members. Just take the SCPO membership card with you.
Tara is a family friendly home equally suitable for couples to get away or for a family with children. Two of the bedrooms at Tara are located on the main level so that elder guests need not worry about climbing stairs.
Tara is lovely but its greatest assets are the people who put a face to the home and welcome you to enjoy your stay to the utmost. Merle, our cook, and Aranda, our maid/laundress will take care of your every need six days a week with charm and good humor. Try Merle’s chicken curry, macaroni pie and rum punch!!
We would like to advise that the Massy Supermarket which is within walking distance to TARA is under construction. Original information from the developers stated the existing store would remain open during the construction phase of the new building on this site. New information received in April explains that it has become necessary to close the existing supermarket on April 30th, with the new store expected to be opened on November 16th, 2017. Massy Supermarket located approx.. 10 mins away in Warrens, if driving, can be used as an alternative for your shopping requirements.
