About St Helena Barbados

St. Helena offers guests a unique feeling of the Old Colonial Style of living in a truly stunning beachside setting. This beautiful beach house has recently undergone extensive refurbishment on the original 5 bedroom house along with a new 3 bedroom cottage built in the grounds to extend the sleeping capacity to 16 guests.

The property is nestled within lush tropical gardens and the white sandy shores of our prestigious West Coast beaches. St Helena has the unusual addition of an aviary housing 500 homing budgerigars, which all adds to the relaxed paradise feeling.

Also on this level are two spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, an al fresco dining area with a pool deck and bar entertaining areas. The pool deck is partly covered and features fountains carved from the islands natural coral stone.

Upstairs has three very spacious bedrooms all with en-suites and sea views, including the commodious master bedroom with a luxurious canopied bed. On this floor there is also a private sitting room/study, named the “Napoleon Room”. All upstairs rooms open to a spectacular semi-circular verandah equipped with a bar and relaxing lounge area, which overlooks our lush tropical gardens and the charming Caribbean Sea so you can watch the sun set each evening.
