Family-friendly Bridgetown holiday home in Brighton, near Kensington Oval
Tantalus Villa, Brighton Beach, St. Michael, is a luxurious beachfront property along the West Coast of Barbados. The property consists of a main house with 2 separate flats, a three bedroom suite on the ground level, and a five bedroom suite on the upper two levels of the main house. The Upper Villa level of the building is a two-story 5 bedroom, five-bathroom dwelling with high quality coral stone finishing and flooring throughout. The total area is approximately 4200 square feet on the upper two levels with large balconies on two levels. The coral stone finishes are of a high standard with shell-stone flooring throughout the main rooms and passageways, and warm bleached pine ceilings in most of the bedrooms and each bedroom is fully air-conditioned and equipped with ceiling fans as well.
The primary feature of the upper flat of Tantalus Villa is the large open living area overlooking the beautiful Caribbean sea. This is a beach lovers delight as the spacious balcony overlooks the beautiful sandy beach and the aquamarine Caribbean Sea. Brighton Beach itself is one of the top swimming/beach combing areas on the west coast of Barbados and after enjoying your day on the beach or in the water, you are perfectly situated to watch another Caribbean sunset displayed in glorious color right from your balcony. Enjoy having your meals at a large round glass dining room table overlooking the ocean and just steps away from the large gourmet kitchen complete with all the amenities. All the doors and windows to the outside have full movable shutters to allow the breezes and light to flow through.
There are two bedrooms and a media room plus a laundry/utility area to the back half of the lower level of this two story suite, with a further three bedrooms and fitness room in the upper level. The master bedroom on the top level is a massive room with a private verandah and views over the pool and sea. It is a stunning room with the feel of living in a luxurious tree house and you may never want to leave.
Alongside the house is a large rectangular pool with Roman steps at one end. The pool is mosaic tiled in a dark cobalt blue color that keeps it exceptionally warm throughout the year. The grounds are well developed with mature trees and shrubbery and there are over a dozen coconut and other palms along the beachfront for shade. There are separate beach access gates for the upstairs and main level flats, each with their own outdoor shower and lounging/seating areas. Brighton Beach itself, is a wide, calm beach ideally suited for all kinds of activity. The swimming and snorkeling is very good and you can jog or walk on uninterrupted on the sand for well over a kilometer in each direction.
Other positive features are that the location is excellent for access to downtown, West Coast, Warrens and the ABC Highway. Brighton Road is just off of the Spring Garden Highway so the house is not on the main road and there are no buses or major truck traffic on your doorstep. The property also enjoys good breezes for most of the year as it is not in the shadow of the more elevated lands along the west coast. An ideal family residence in a quiet area with good security.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers private pools and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to balconies or patios. This accommodation is furnished with sofa beds and dining tables. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful week in paradise
From the moment we booked Tantalus it was an amazing experience. The owners were MORE than accommodating. They responded to every question right away, stocked our fridge full of food, beer and wine for us before arrival so that we were ready to vacation the moment we stepped foot in the house. (due to the Barbados quarantine timeframe) they booked a fabulous chef for us that cooked for my husbands 40th birthday, recommended the best massage therapist that gave us wonderful massages on the top patio of the master bedroom and we’re there for any and all questions. The pool is lovely, the beach is beautiful (lots of sea glass if you like to hunt for it like we do). The weather was great!! The house was huge and we didnt even use all the bedrooms for our 5 adults and two toddlers. Super spacious. The kitchen has everything you would ever need. It was perfect. Highly recommend.

A wonderful week away
We had an amazing week at Tantalus. The property was beautiful with a pool and access to the beach. We had 4 families, all of which had their own space/room/bathroom. The kitchen had everything we needed. The hosts Heather and JP and their son were very welcoming and helpful in helping us learn about the island and how to get around. Thank you all for a wonderful week in Barbados!

4/5 Good

Beautiful Location
This villa is set directly on a beautiful huge stretch of beach. The views from the deck areas are spectacular. We especially enjoyed watching the sunsets and the cruise ships go out at night. We were a party of 9, and there was tons of room for us. We did have 1 small issue. The hot tub does not work, which was a bit of a disappointment, especially in December/January when the ocean and pool are the coolest. JP did tell us he has been working on to try to get it running, so perhaps inquire if this is important to you. We loved our frequent visits from the owners dogs. They are very sweet, and it was so funny how they always seemed to know when we were having dinner.......... ;)
