Anchorage is a single story residence and sits in its own acre/half hectare grounds at the western end of the Sandy Lane Estate, just a stone’s throw from the Hotel and the private Property Owners’ Beach. It is bright and airy and has excellent quality furnishings throughout. The house is fully alarmed which is linked to a 24 hour monitoring station.
The lush tropical planting give quiet shaded areas where one can enjoy a book, or alternatively lie by the pool perfecting the sun tan on any one of the six loungers. Geoffrey is our dedicated Gardener who keeps the grounds in immaculate condition -Thursday is mowing day! The property boasts eighteen different species of Palms including two rare varieties, which are of great interest amongst the locals.
The spacious vaulted Living Room is a blend of old Barbados mahogany furniture & coral stone with the more modern bamboo. The security louvre shutters, which open fully on the north and south sides, give the room the feeling of total openness as you are surrounded by the luscious gardens.
The marble dining table seats twelve and is ideal for formal entertaining. The twelve mahogany dining chairs and carvers have needlepoint seats, each of which is a different, very attractive, shell design.
There is a small TV room off the Living Room which can also be used as an Office. The Direct TV channels provide CNN & BBC News, ESPN Sports, TNT & HBO and a variety of specialist programmes. The Office area has a fax/printer and a Broadband connection.
Bedroom 1: Air-Conditioned, twin beds with mattresses that zip together to make one large double. It has its own double basin en suite bathroom with a very large shower.
Bedroom 2: Air Conditioned, twin beds with mattresses that zip together to make one large double bed. The bathroom with bath/shower is opposite.
Bedroom 3: Air-conditioned, en suite bathroom with bath/shower and the beds can be made up as two singles or one 6’/1.5m double.
The large, covered outdoor patio overlooks the pool. At one end there is a dining area with a wrought iron table that comfortably seats six, ideal for breakfast, lunch and informal dining in the evenings. At the other end is comfortable informal seating for eight and is the perfect setting for reading.
Anchorage has a permanent Housekeeper who is an excellent cook and who will take care of your every need six days a week (sadly you have to fend for yourselves on Sundays). She will prepare breakfast and a light lunch (other meals by arrangement) as well as taking care of all the laundry including personal items.
Less than five minutes’ walk or two minutes’ drive away from Anchorage is one of the best beaches in Barbados and this is where the Sandy Lane Property Owners Private Beach Facility is located immediately adjacent to the famous Sandy Lane Hotel. Here there is a small private cabana, which houses a fridge for cold drinks, six beach loungers and four chairs. There are outdoor showers, as well as toilet facilities. The Sandy Lane Hotel water sports facility is adjacent should you wish to water-ski or sail.
