About the property

3 bedroom villa, sleeps 6, in the hills overlooking West Coast

At the top of Apes Hill overlooking the stunning new Apes Hill golf course this exotic jungle hideaway provides private outdoor living. With its cool breezes and magnificent jungle The Crag is a great place to chill out and watch the green monkeys at tree top level. Only 10 minutes drive from the finest West Coast beaches, yet a world away from the hustle of the coast road, this house is made for relaxing after a day on the beach. Centrally located, perfect exploring the many different beaches and attractions of the Island, including vast coral stone caves nearly. This is a Barbados that very few tourists experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

With our three boys we spent 2 wonderful weeks at the Crag. The house was in excellent shape and we did in fact not miss the air condition. There is always a breeze that makes you feel comfortable. Kitchen and bathrooms are fine - you wont´t miss anything. The Gregg is a good starting point for West and East coast beaches and is close to Holetown with it´s nice places for dining and shopping. We had a great time at this place.

The jewel of this beautiful property is the outdoor living space with the jungle view! So charming and comfortable. We were 3 couples in our 50's and early 60's and we enjoyed many evenings on the covered patio. The kitchen was very well equipped and the bedrooms were beautiful, especially the 2 on the upper level. The master bedroom is divine. The mattress was a little too firm for me but that was a very minor issue in the grand scheme of things! It was great that all 3 couples had their own bathroom!

Check in and check out was smooth and the property manager was attentive to all our needs and requests.

A car is a must as the property as described is quite isolated.

Thanks Rebecca! It was a pleasure to work with you, you were so quick to reply to any of our questions. You have such a great property! We loved our stay!
