Nestled in the Sandy Lane Estate on the West Coast of Barbados, Elsewhere is a large Sandy Lane villa suffused in greenery that transports you to a mythical space between the ocean and the clouds. Arise to the antics of green monkeys in the gardens, observe the hummingbirds, sailing ships and flowering trees by day, and catch the soul-stirring views of the sunset each evening. The breeze constantly flows through the various courtyards, patios, loggias, balconies, and terraces of this villa that sprawls over two acres on a ridge with sweeping views.
This ten-bedroom luxury vacation rental is a labour of love, furnished elegantly to the highest standard and fitted with magical lights, works of art, beautiful brickwork, and imaginatively created spaces where guests can entertain and relax.
The main house has two wings with six en suite bedrooms, a living room, covered patio, kitchen, and courtyard. A charming loggia and bar area overlooking the front and back gardens is one of the focal points of the house.
The pool house has two en suite bedrooms above a large poolside lounge area and bar.
A charming garden cottage, with a living room and two en suite bedrooms, opens to a private lawn and mahogany grove.
Elsewhere is a five-minute drive (or a 15-minute walk) from the beautiful Sandy Lane Owners Beach Club where guests have free access to a beach cabana, chaise lounges, umbrellas, snack bar, washrooms, and showers.
Some of the best restaurants and duty-free shopping in Barbados are close at hand as are some of the island’s most desirable golf courses. The villa manager and incredibly helpful concierge service will point the way and help you select activities during your stay.
Our chef Debra is world-class, and the entire staff is warm and welcoming. Additional hands will ensure your drinks are topped, clothes spiffed up and massage is booked. Rihanna has stayed here, and Pavarotti has sung in these gardens.
Elsewhere has every imaginable amenity from parking space for six cars, high-speed internet throughout, a fully equipped gym, air conditioning in most spaces, flat-screen televisions, high-quality speakers, and a top-notch security system…there’s magic everywhere, from its fabled hanging gardens to endless vistas, waterfalls, and whistling frogs. It lifts the spirits and forces you to discover what lies beyond.
Once you stay here, you will always want to be “Elsewhere”.
