Photos and Description of this Sandy Lane holiday villa

Dene Court has all the flexibility you would expect from a 5 bedroom Villa.

Sandy Lane Estate , St. James , Barbados.

Dene Court is an imposing, spacious Villa located in the heart of this world famous estate and just a stone’s throw from the Sandy Lane Golf and Country Club and less than a five minute drive from the Sandy Lane Property Owners Private Beach Facility.

This is a peaceful private retreat for families or groups of friends with enough space in the lush tropical gardens to find a quiet area to read even when the Villa is fully occupied. Most of the activity however centres around the large outside terrace off the main living room where there is plenty of space for alfresco dining as you overlook the large attractive swimming pool. There is formal dining for the evening in the main house seating up to 10 people.

Inside, the minstrel's gallery is a main feature, off which are four of the bedrooms all with private facilities. The Master bedroom has the additional luxury of a private balcony, large dressing room and a spacious bathroom. There is a further fifth double bedroom on the ground floor with an en suite bathroom and it's own private patio.

Set in over an acre of manicured grounds Dene Court is ideal for weddings and entertaining/receptions on a large scale. The large pool situated off the main outdoor terrace provides a very attractive backdrop for photographs and top quality catering can be provided for any type of event.

The house provides good quality staff including a cook, maid, laundress and a night watchman which are included in the rate. The chef is happy to discuss personalised menus for special dietary requirements and will prepare a picnic if necessary.

The property is close to several 5* restaurants on the famous platinum west coast.

Heavenly holiday

  • 5 of 5

Property is fantastic , very well maintained and supported discretely by Real Tours and the daily staff. We wanted extra facilities as we had a very young baby in the party and a cot, high chair, and table tennis facility were made available prior to our arrival. There was bad weather (storm) during the visit and again we were made aware of safety procedures and we felt very secure. Because of the baby we spent a lot of time at the property , the Sandy Lane beach and we mainly dined at home. Richard is an able cook and if you are specific about your timings, likes and requirements he does deliver. Janelle was quietly efficient and was very mindful of the baby's timetable. The holiday was all that we wanted it to be, lazy , superbly looked after in a super property in a great location . I personally spent ages walking the baby on the Old 9 and watching the golfers play was fun. The fortnight passed all too quickly and we were very sad to leave.

Amazing Property and Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for two weeks at Dene Court in Sandy Lane, and I can say without hesitation that our expectations were not only met but exceeded. The property is incredibly spacious, it manages to be both colonial in style, whilst incorporating all modern luxuries (in particular the master suite and all the en-suite bathrooms).

We were looked after by Richard and Janelle, who were extremely friendly, discrete and left us feeling very spoilt. Richard, the chef, talked to us about our food preferences, came shopping with us, and then cooked some fantastic meals that would not be out of place in a top restaurant. Winston, the night security guard, was friendly, a great source of local knowledge and always willing to help with any queries we had.

We had a 5 month old baby with us, and I had expected this to be a more challenging holiday, but the agents and staff made every aspect stress free. No small task!

The gardens are large, immaculately maintained and a pleasure to walk around, especially first thing in the morning with a coffee. The property is well located in Sandy Lane and we made good use of the private beach, that the Sandy Lane property owners have use of, this had also just been renovated to include a large lounge area and bar.

Overall, the house, Richard, Janelle, and Winston made this an amazing holiday. Having been to the caribbean a dozen times this is most luxurious holiday we have ever had, and we will definitely be looking to come back soon.

Thank you again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have enjoyed yet another amazing stay at this beautiful property. Our stay was made comfortable and relaxing by the surroundings and Janelle and Richard. Winston went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and nothing was to much trouble. The house is well equipped ,clean and with a great pool. It was a perfect base for exploring the island and coming back home in the evening to a relaxed cocktail before dinner. We were close to excellent restaurants .... The recently refurbished Tides restaurant is worth a visit. The beach at sandy Lane never ceases to deliver. We look forward to our next trip to Dene Court. Thank you for a memorable trip.

Exceptional Experience - Ultimate Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The time spent at Dene Court truly exceeded our expectations and will surely be a family vacation we'll never forget. The service provided by the Villa staff (Richard, Janelle, Elizabeth and Winston) allowed our party of ten to unwind, refresh, and make the most of our time together. Upon arrival, we were cheerfully greeted with cold towels to help offset the heat. The property manager walked us through the accommodations and gave us a tour of the stunning property. The five bedrooms, each with its own ensuite, were clean and beautifully maintained. The open-concept living quarters provided curated areas that could flex between quiet reading to board game group fun. Grounds were well-landscaped, which beautifully nestled the property and provided a lush, intimate environment. The pool was clean and large enough to be enjoyed by all - young and old. Throughout our stay, Janelle and Elizabeth ensured that the villa was cleaned daily and clothing left in room hampers were laundered and ironed. Each day Richard prepared delicious local dishes and graciously accommodated our request throughout the week. Our favorite meal was the Bajan Cou-Cou and Flying Fish which he went with us to the fish market to buy fresh. He was sure to have an option for the children who were not ready to be as adventurous (much enjoyed pasta). The property was guarded every evening from 6pm-6am by Winston who was friendly and added more piece of mind. Dene Court is definitely a place we'd love to return to for future vacations!

A lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Dene Court now on a number of occasions and this time with the family and friends, including a young baby. Once again we all had a wonderful, relaxing holiday.

The house is very comfortable. The five bedrooms are all tastefully decorated and each with an ensuite bathroom and air conditioning. The inside and outside living areas are spacious and plenty of sitting areas. Janelle and Elizabeth both quietly worked very hard each day keeping the house clean, changing the beds and washing and ironing all our clothes. They quietly cleared up after us each time we were out. Janelle also helped with serving and clearing dinner when required.

Richard the chef was excellent. We talked to him about meals and recipes, took him to the supermarket to shop and picked up a variety of fish that he had ordered from Paynes Bay fish market which he then served in a variety of delicious dishes. We ate at the house most days for breakfast, lunch and dinner and his meals were varied and very tasty. Everything that we bought was used creatively for different meals. He was very flexible about our indecision on meal times and numbers for meals and just worked around it. There was always a pot of tea ready early in the morning and rum punch in the evening. Even the baby had little pots of fresh fruit or vegetables prepared each day. Nothing was too much trouble.

Winston the security guard was always there in the evening and overnight. He was helpful and interested in our day.

We all made full use of the large pool and there was always a plentiful supply of towels for the pool and beach. The gardens were spacious and well looked after.

We used the Sandy Lane Owners Beach and sun loungers on many occasions for swimming, snorkelling and various boat trips. Richard would also make up a box of goodies to take for sundowners on the beach.

Another lovely holiday at Dene Court. Thanks - we will be back.

A very special holiday at beautiful Dene Court

  • 5 of 5

I stayed as a guest at Dene Court

The villa was beautiful and very comfortable

It was always kept clean and the linen was clean and regularly changed

The staff were helpful and always there to help

An added bonus was the laundry was always done and returned to you and was included in the cost of the rental

The gardens were well kept and were very pleasant to sit in

It was really good to have the private beach facility at the Sandy Lane Property Owners Beach

The beach attendants were  very helpful and it was good to have the loungers and umbrellas to use

Altogether a very special holiday and I will definitely be returning

Dene Court is located on the West Coast of Barbados in the heart of the prestigious Sandy Lane Estate and is a three minute drive away from the exclusive Sandy Lane Property Owners Private Beach Facility where guests have direct access to the golden sands of Sandy Lane Bay. The private Beach Club has recently been up-graded with showers, toilet and changing facilities. The friendly Beach Club Attendents will attend to all your needs and provide loungers, mattresses and umbrellas to make your day more comfortable.

Sunset Crest which houses a variety of small shops, a bank and a duty free store is less than five mininuts drive away with Holetown just a few minutes further north. Here, the local Supermarket is located in a mall which contains a variety of non food outlets including some duty free retails and in the town there is a wide variety of restaurants which cater for all tastes. The latest Holetown development is the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre which houses some of the world's most famous designer boutiques as well as two luxurious cinemas and a number of speciality cafes. Further up the coast is the old Barbadian town of Speightstown with its beach front cafes and restaurants.

All the beaches on the West Coast face the calm Caribbean Sea so are ideal for swimming, snorkling, sailing and other water sports. Tennis and golf are both within minutes of Dene Court with guests able to take advantage of both at special rates.
