Pear Tree House is a spacious modern villa on the West Coast of Barbados. Designed by the Italian architect Francesco Draisci it utilises the natural ventilation of the prevailing winds to provide a cool and light interior. It has extensive outside terraces, pool and garden.
There is a 10m x 5 m swimming pool which is fully tiled in blue mosaics. It is the latest salt water pool which uses almost no chlorine to purify the water for a natural feeling swim. It has a South terrace at the end for sun bathing with shady trees at the side.
There are two further terraces, one large fully covered area off the kitchen/diner which leads down to the swimming pool and one shaded space of the living room great for quiet relaxing,reading etc.
The house itself is very spacious -350m- and is designed as an open plan house. It is zoned as a large family/kitchen/dining space which then leads into a sitting/media/entertaining area.
The guest suite with double bed and bathroom is also on the ground floor with its own front door allowing guests to have some independence.
Upstairs is a large master suite with walk in wardrobe and en-suite wet room. This bedroom has windows and ventilation on 3 sides giving a feeling of being "in the treetops".
There are a further 3 bedrooms currently configured as one double, one twin and a twin childrens room. These share the family bathroom which has a bath with shower over and three washbasins.
The house is fully furnished with large beds, plenty of seating inside and out, two dining tables. There is a washing machine,dryer,dishwasher etc.
The house is located right in the heart of the West Coast 5 minutes walk from the beach. There are several good restaurants nearby- The Cliff, Daphne's, Scarlets etc. Or you can walk to the Fish Market at Payne's Bay and buy today's catch; there is a farmer's market at Holders Hill about 1/2 mile away every Sunday.
The house offers a really relaxed, simple space for a fantastic family holiday and is easily large enough to fit extended families or two families as the living areas are so big. We also offer a very good value price for parties of 7 or under.
It is the perfect place to base a holiday to explore the island, or just to wind down and wander to the beach to swim in the warm Caribbean sea. The local beaches are have white sand and are very safe for children. You will find plenty of restaurants and watersports in walking distance or you can go further along the coast to explore.
The weather is hot all year round and the summer holidays are becoming increasingly popular, as well as the established Winter season.
We are offering the house for rent at a very reasonable rate as this is the first year of rental and we hope to establish it as a place where people will want to return to.
