Tara is a tastefully furnished three-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom villa located in Sunset Crest, St. James, Barbados. A charming community next to prestigious Sandy Lane Estate within walking distance to beaches, a supermarket, restaurants, bar/nightclubs, and retail shopping on the famous West Coast of Barbados at Holetown. In addition, Tara is minutes from the new Lime Grove Mall with its fabulous designer retail stores, duty-free shopping, restaurants and entertainment spots.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed, two others have queen size beds and one has two twin beds. Each bedroom is air-conditioned and equipped with a safe for securing valuables. All of the windows at Tara are screened so that if you prefer, you can enjoy the lovely Caribbean breeze wafting across Tara in the evenings. On the main level, double French doors open onto a lovely covered patio, sundeck and pool together with a covered gazebo area, perfect for relaxing during the day or enjoying a cocktail at sunset. Dining can be indoors or out with seating in the indoor dining room or outside under the covered patio next to the pool.

Tara is well equipped with air conditioning in all bedrooms, wireless internet and TV’s in three of the bedrooms as well as a large screen TV located in the media room adjacent to the fourth bedroom. Tara is beautifully and meticulously landscaped with a bountiful tropical garden lovely to look at and a source of privacy at the property.

In addition to the pool located on-site and a short walk to the beach, during your stay at Tara, you will have access to the 50-foot swimming pool, beach and tennis courts (at owner rates) owned by the Sunset Crest Property Owners Association (SCPO) of which we are members. Just take the SCPO membership card with you.

Tara is a family-friendly home equally suitable for couples to getaway or for a family with children. Two of the bedrooms at Tara are located on the main level so that elder guests need not worry about climbing stairs.

Tara is lovely but its greatest asset are the people who put a face to the home and welcome you to enjoy your stay to the utmost. Our team members will take care of your every need six days a week with charm and good humour.

    Our second visit to Tara and cannot fault anything. Merle and Aranda make you feel so welcome and look after you exceptionally well. We have all had a lovely time and would definitely recommend a catamaran cruise with Shasa Cruises. With our thanks for a lovely holiday.
