About the property

Stunning Large 4 Bed 4 Bath Luxury Penthouse in Holetown with Maid/Cook

“The View”, 402, Villas On The Beach, Holetown, Barbados


Hold your breath and believe in magic, as you enter The View. The stunning new interior of this luxury penthouse apartment is matched only by the enchanting vista which greets you from the balcony. We think it’s probably the best view you’ll find on the Island - and you find it slap bang in the middle of the bustling Holetown. What could be better?


Villas on the Beach is exactly what the name suggests, opening straight onto the silky white sands of the Bajan West Coast, so you can dive straight in. If the warm, crystal ocean doesn’t float your boat, there are two communal pools for you to make a splash.

The penthouse is in the centre of Holetown, a convenient 35 minute drive from the airport, with everything you might need within walking distance: dozens of high quality restaurants, bars and a buzzing nightlife, supermarkets, a state-of-the-art duty-free shopping centre, and a doctor’s surgery, pharmacy and medical centre. If you fancy taking a swing, there are three world-renowned golf courses a short drive away; Sandy Lane, Apes Hill and Royal Westmoreland.


Once inside, you can relax in a royal fashion: the interior has been newly redecorated to rival the high-end design expected of Barbados’ fabled “Platinum” west coast. With the highest quality furnishings and elegant blend of contemporary and traditional decor, The View oozes style as well as comfort. Three of the four stunning bedrooms boast magnificent sea views, and all bedrooms and the living area are equipped with air conditioning to keep you cool throughout those gorgeous sunny days. Wifi is available throughout, so you can always stay connected. All premium sports (including Sky Sports and Sky Movies/Cinema), news and children's channels are available on the 42" LCD TV. The kitchen has an oven/hob and microwave, along with a side by side fridge freezer, wine cooler, dishwasher, oversized washing machine/tumble dryer, to make your holiday even easier.

Put your feet up as our housemaid, Shereene, helps out with cleaning and laundry six days a week. If you would like some meals prepared for you, Shereene will make up to two meals per day - her specialities include Grilled Catch of the Day, Chicken Curry, Lasagne, Rottis, Spaghetti Bolognese and more..(YOU BUY THE FOOD AND SHEREENE COOKS IT)! Most guests choose to eat in some nights and go out on others, but if you want to eat in every night then this can certainly be provided. Simply let us know in advance!

We invite you to experience a holiday in paradise, and we hope that you, too, will fall in love with The View..

About Jonathan Willoughby

My wife and I have four daughters and we live in East Yorkshire, England.

Jonathan Willoughby purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jonathan Willoughby chose Sunset Crest

We visited Barbados 25 times before deciding to buy a property there and that gave us the chance to find the very best location (in our opinion) on the island.

We chose Holetown, as not only does it has a beautiful beach, but is the centre of all the facilities that the West Coast has to offer; so much so that you do not need to hire a car.

What makes this apartment unique

The fantastic view from the terrace.

Excellent apartment, very well appointed, wonderful views. Well looked after by Simon the manager and Shereen the housekeeper. Jonathon the owner was very helpful and easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend this - we would have no hesitation in booking this again for a future Barbados trip.

Fantastic Location for New Years Eve

  • 5 of 5

Family all gathered for New Years and following week. Looks like the picture, view is better in person. Simon and Cherene (sp) were friendly, helpful as were the entire staff. Place is centrally located within walking distance of a number of great restaurants, The Tides is right next door and Mews was a 5 minute walk. Both places were excellent with a large group. six adults and 2 children. Beach is a bit skinny right here, but short walks (minute or two) either direction you will find better expanses of sand. Short drives will get you to any number of public beaches all with there unique characteristics. Fireworks show from balcony was awesome, literally a front row seat. Great trip Great place to stay

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

First time to Barbados and loved everything about this condo. It had ample space for our two families - very clean and we loved the manager, Simon and the housekeeper Shereen. Simon helped with all the pre trip planning and was very responsive to all my questions and Shereen is such an amazing cook! Loved her chicken kebabs with garlic butter! Having a brand new supermarket across the street was great and cute shopping walking distance from the condo. We will definitely be coming back!!!

Simply amazing location

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to spend a week as a family of 5 (22/21/18)! 4 double rooms all with en-suites, (3 with sea views), even the kitchen has a brilliant sea view. Location opposite the supermarket and next door to The Tides restaurant was so convenient for absolutely everything. Live sport in the Surfshack 50 yards along the beach, British TV including Sky was available in the house too for those that need shelter from the sun. An unrivalled balcony with plenty of comfortable seating "Home from Home" is this place in every sense.

We walked the beach a couple of miles in each direction everyday and had breakfast in some of the 5 star hotels, nothing will come close to the value offered by Jonathan even the much vaunted hotels at £1000 per night!!

Many Thanks to Simon (Ray Winstone) Capeling the house manager and Sherene for the cleaning & the excellent curry she cooked one night and to Jonathan for allowing us to stay in such a wonderful place, the pictures actually don't do it justice!

We don't often return to properties as doing this every year you never find new places like this? I have a feeling we will be back!

Everything was spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the View for my 40th Birthday. What an amazing experience! We could not have asked for better accomodations. The actual view from the balconies are unreal. They took our breath away. We spent most of our time relaxing by the pool, but the ocean was also great! Shereene is an amazing cook and all of our meals were delicious. And Simon was fantastic. He pre-stocked the apartment with everything we had asked for and greeted us with a smile, and some yummy rum punch! Everyone was so helpful with any of our questions and the girl working the security desk even called a taxi and got us a deal. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The View to everyone I know, and I hope to be back one day!

Perfect condo in Holetown

  • 5 of 5

Condo is right on the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean. Within walking distance to many good restaurants and shops. The condo is roomy, modern, and clean. Each bedroom is large with its own bathroom. The property manager is so helpful. He made contact with us well before the trip to provide us guidance and assistance with transportation, groceries, etc. He also met us at the property the first day to give us a warm welcome and a tour of the condo. He was available and responsive during our stay and ensured our visit was satisfying. The condo also has a housekeeper/cook. She also did laundry! We were too busy to enjoy her cooking but wish we would have had an opportunity to do so. She also greeted us upon arrival with a fruity cocktail.

All in all, a perfect vacation spot for a group of 8 (friends or family). We certainly hope to return.

The View is a penthouse in Villas on the Beach, in the parish of St James, just a short drive from Grantley Adams International Airport and the capital of Bridgetown. This area, on the island’s sought-after west coast, has always attracted the fi nest hotels and restaurants. Holetown, the island’s oldest settlement, is an excellent place to shop and eat. Step out of your property and the legendary Sandy Lane Hotel is just a ten-minute stroll along the beach in the next bay. You’ll also find some of the world’s most prestigious brands, including Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Cartier and Vilebrequin, in the nearby Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, just a 5 minute walk away.
