About the property

Town house in Prospect, St. James, Barbados - Peaceful Central Location, 5 Min Walk To Beach

This development, overlooking a beautifully landscaped waterfall, designed to allow persons using the swimming pool and gazebo area's to enjoy a view of the beautiful Caribbean sea, where jet ski’s, yachts and other pleasure craft may be seen as they pass you by. The property is less than 10 mins drive from the city of Bridgetown and is situated on the luxurious West Coast where many of the famous film stars, entertainment celebrities, prime ministers and presidents reside when they visit the island. Three of the islands premier golf courses; Sandy Lane, Royal West Moreland, the new "Apes Hill" (which is reputed to be the best in the Caribbean) are all close. This development ideally set in the hills of a cul-de-sac is located at Prospect St. James Barbados and consists of seven beautifully designed town houses. The properties were suitably created to take advantage of the contours of the land and overlook the scenic west coast of Barbados with 180 degree panoramic views of the ocean.

About Bev White

The property is owned by two families, Glyn and Beverley White and Dennis and Denise Brownlow. we met on holiday in St. Lucia 20 years ago and now we are more like family than friends.

Glyn and Beverley live in Cardiff - Wales

Dennis and Denise live in March - Cambridgeshire

Bev White purchased this house in 2005

Why Bev White chose St. James

With so many properties to choose from its always difficult to make a choice, however this property ticks most of the boxes for us.

The deciding factor has to be the outstanding views of the beautiful west coast along with the location; being half way between Hole Town and Bridgetown, and the beach at the bottom of the road is just the icing on the cake.

What makes this house unique

The property is spacious with air conditioning in all rooms and benifits from 3 full bathrooms which is great when there are more people staying.

The views from the balcony off the lounge and the roof top terrace is simply stunning and one of the best on the west coast. There are also sea views from the kitchen window and the two ground floor bedrooms.

There are no other developments like Costa Vista which has a mediterranean feel and look. The property has become a landmark and is clearly visible from the sea or air.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A special thank you to Den, Denise, Glyn & Bev for allowing us to stay another week. The house has amazing views and is perfect for all our needs. After a hectic 2 weeks we just simply relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful island and its people. We ventured all around the island using the yellow reggae buses, "what an experience, fantastic!"

Thank you so much,

Steve & June Count, March, Cambridgeshire, England, UK.



Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your wonderful home, its so nice to feel relaxed and take in the amazing views, they are truly incredible! This sure keeps you fit and you have done this place so well and pretty. Thank you, we hope to return again next year.

Outside: Roof terrace 550sqft with table and chairs external electrical sockets should you wish to plug in a music appliance, there is also electric lighting as well as bamboo oil lamps. The roof top terrace has a BBQ and it's an amazing, breath taking place to chill and absorb the serenity that it provides. The new swimming pool is awesome! and it's almost like an infinity pool as you just gaze at the beautiful Caribbean sea while you keep cool and relax. Our gardens are landscaped and offer many seasonal tropical flowers and shrubs. The first floor bedrooms both have a balcony with views to the Caribbean sea of the west cost, so does the large balcony off the living area.

Fabulous town house with great views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two young adult children enjoyed our stay here immensely. It was very spacious for the four of us and the stairs were a great work-out! It was a joy to have our morning coffee on the balcony and watch the antics of the 'green monkeys'. It was a pleasurable walk down to the beach and Jordans supermarket was so handy. We went to Wendys' for some good home cooking which is around the corner and up the hill. Need a car to get there though. Bought fish from Oistins market and cooked it for dinner a few times as eating out in Barbados can get a bit pricey. Hubby made use of the cheap Bajan rum and made rum punch nearly everyday! The pool was nice for cooling off and wasn't that busy as not all of the townhouses were being occupied at this time. Thank you Bev and Glyn for allowing us to stay at your home-away from home and we do plan to return someday. Rhonda and Peter P.S. Say 'hello' to Elma for us--- she was a pleasure to talk to and did a great job at cleaning the townhouse.

Excellent no faults

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a quiet area with lovely views and well equipped would not hesitate in recommending it to anybody but has a steep hill to climb I would advise car hire but you have a bus stop at bottom of hill and you can get anywhere on them. also a well stocked supermarket the pictures do not do it justice.

Excellent Location & Breathtaking Views

  • 3 of 5

We had problems communicating with the owners. The PIN provided for location was wrong , phone contact numbers no answer, taxi , locals could not tell us where the condo was situated.

The condo, met our needs for 4 couples. Needed some repairs . The views, pool, balconies provided a beautiful view of the carribian watching the sailboats and daily visits from the monkeys .Short walk to the market and buses and Fitts Village. Beach a bit rocky safe to swim.Weather beautiful..

The condo has a lot of steps interior to each level and exterior to the pool.

Would have liked a BBQ as advertised since we went to Paynes Market frequently. Rent a car is a must to see Barbados. The housekeeper once there was amazing .

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Don't hesitate to book this villa - lovely spacious villa, great location (not if you are elderly or infirm as up a hill and lots of stairs) but great for beach, buses, shops etc. right by a supermarket too. Really helpful friendly owners and house keeper. Would definetly consider booking again.
