Sandalwood House is one of our most popular Sandy Lane villa rentals situated on the prestigious Sandy Lane Estate in St. James, Barbados. Its popularity is well deserved, as this beautiful property boasts over an acre of lush tropical gardens, adorned with a stunning array of more than a dozen different species of palm trees and other unique tropical flora and fauna.

The villa features an inviting open-air terrace and dining patio, complete with a built-in alcove for extra seating, which leads to a pool and Jacuzzi offering breathtaking views across the third tee of the Old Nine golf course. A garden gate provides easy access to the golf course, ideal for morning walks or jogs. Sun loungers on the pool deck offer the perfect place to relax and work on that sun-kissed glow, while a Spanish-style covered gazebo provides a peaceful spot for afternoon tea or leisurely tropical afternoons spent with family and friends.

Inside, Sandalwood House offers a spacious and comfortable TV room, with access to all UK channels, ensuring that guests can keep up to date with English news, sports, and TV shows whilst on vacation. The main house features four beautifully appointed air-conditioned bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom. Three of these bedrooms are located on the upper level, with the fourth bedroom situated on the ground floor, where there is also a fifth full bathroom conveniently positioned for pool use.

Additionally, Sandalwood House offers a charming and cozy self-contained cottage, consisting of two ensuite bedrooms, a sitting area with a flat-screen TV and cable, and a fully equipped kitchen. This private cottage provides the perfect romantic setting for couples to relax and unwind, with a plunge pool just off the patio.

Guests staying at Sandalwood House also have access to sun loungers at the Sandy Lane Property Owners Beach Club on Sandy Lane Beach, along with beach umbrellas, an onsite bar, and food services, making for a stress-free beach experience.

To complete the villa experience, Sandalwood House offers a seasoned staff including a butler, cook, and housekeeper, as well as a gardener and night security guard, ensuring a happy and memorable vacation.

Please note that, like all our Sandy Lane villa rentals, the use of Riemann P20 sunscreen is prohibited as it damages towels and fabrics.   Also, our Barbados villa rentals do not allow smoking and vaping inside the villa.

    Using all 6 bedrooms at the villa we certainly had a house full but everything worked so well for us. We all had a great time. The house was fantastic, the bedrooms were all a great size and the cottage worked really well for the teenage girls who wanted their own space. The beach was very close and what a beach it was. Sandy Lane beach was stunning and the Property Owners Beach Club part of it was tremendous. In our opinion better than outside the Sandy Lane hotel. It was certainly one of the best beaches we had been to. Finally our thanks go to Charmaine and all the staff at the villa who looked after us all so well. Would love to go back sometime in the future and I will be recommending this villa and Sandy Lane in general to all my friends.

    We had the most amazing welcome from the staff at Sandalwood, which continued throughout the whole of our stay. The location is perfect as a short walk to Sandy Lane, and to Holetown. The house is kept to a very high standard, the staff were very attentive. Charmaine (Housekeeper) was extremely helpful, kind and thoughtful in everyway, and Jackie was the most amazing cook. Every dish was delicious. We were made to feel at home and nothing was too much trouble. Even the gardener, Jason and the security guard Lyndon were very friendly, they were never intrusive. Couldn't have wished for a better holiday. I highly recommend and will be booking a return visit.

    We had a great time. The position of the villa was great - walking distance to the beach - and the staff were great too. Thank you for everything.

    This villa really is stunning and looks even better in person. It worked so well for our family, everyone loved it. For a family of all ages this is not an easy thing to achieve! The villa offered loads of room with really beautiful gardens. The added bonus is the beach is just a very short walk away. This worked really really well as you could easily go to the beach and then come back to relax even more at the villa. Holetown was also close by with some lovely restaurants and some fun bars. The icing on the cake was the staff who looked after us all so well and were always very friendly and smiley. They also produced so many great meals for us. Would definitely recommend this villa to a family looking for an excellent standard of villa.

    As we prepare to leave Sandalwood House I just wanted to say what an amazing holiday we have had here, made so special by the wonderful staff. Charmaine has gone a step beyond what she needed to - she really is something special. The cooking skills of Theo were something else! And Cynthia, Shanith, Lyndon and Jason were all fantastic too. Will definitely come back next year.

    We came to this amazing villa for a family reunion, after being separated for over 18 months by COVID. It was such a prefect place to get to know my new grand daughter and for baby cousins to met for the first time. We were made so welcome by Charmaine and all the staff. Everyone was really flexible and accommodating. Thank you Jacqui for the excellent food, Cynthia for all the cleaning and laundry, Jason for the beautiful garden and massive clear up after the hurricane and Lyndon for staying a full 36 hours when the island went into lockdown for the storm! Charmaine always wanted to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay as perfect as it could be! I would love to come back one day.

    We absolutely loved staying in Sandalwood House - we have not done a villa before but will definitely do it again. We loved seeing the monkeys in the garden. The Beach Club is fantastic and so it didn't matter being a few minutes walk from the beach. We were all happy with our bedrooms and everything that was provided with them.
