Luxury Air Conditioned Holiday Villa on the West Coast of Barbados
With its large covered patio backing onto local playing fields, Alamanda enjoys a continuous cooling breeze, which rolls down the hills from nearby sugar plantations. A very good selection of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets are located nearby. Bars, banks, a supermarket, post office, doctor's surgery and an air-conditioned shopping mall - with duty free shops - are all within a few minutes walk. Sunset Crest has 2 cyber cafés – 1 in the mall and the other is close to the convenience store.
The bedrooms are air-conditioned and all rooms are fitted with ceiling fans. There are also two powerful, portable floor standing fans. The spacious, light and airy open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area is equipped with 27inch flat screen TV, VCR, CD/cassette/radio stereo system and 2 telephones (for accepting incoming calls and making outgoing local calls - which are free). Subscription to CBC Multichoice (cable/satellite TV) is included offering 21 channels including CNN, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Cartoon Network, BBC, ESPN.
The fully equipped kitchen includes a dishwasher, large fridge-freezer, oven/hob, microwave, coffee maker and a blender.
The accommodation's living areas open out onto the large L-shaped, covered veranda complete with comfortable rattan sofa and chairs, coffee table and a barbecue. There are also 6 aluminium/plastic chairs and a table, plus 2 matching sun loungers. The veranda overlooks the villa's beautiful tropical gardens which are attractively illuminated at night.
Alamanda guests have authorised beach access through the Discovery Bay Hotel which is just 100 metres from the villa. This does not give automatic access to Discovery Bay's swimming pool but many guests use this facility freely. If you do decide to use the pool at Discovery Bay, you are requested to use your discretion and perhaps buy the occasional drink from the poolside bar. Many water sports including scuba diving and snorkelling are available locally. The nearby tennis courts are available for hire at a nominal charge from the Discovery Bay Hotel (subject to availability). Other local public courts are also available.
The accomodation includes ample parking space directly inside the gate at Alamanda should you wish to hire a car during your stay.
