Very Spacious, Private, Open Plan Retreat With Pool And Stunning Views Of West C



Updated: 13-Oct-2016
House above Mullins Beach, St. Peter, Caribbean - Idyllic, Peaceful Location In Beautiful Landscaped Gardens Only 1 Mile From Mullins Beach

Available to rent from 3 to 6 bedrooms. Pricing depends on amount of bedrooms required/number of guests in party. The maximum price during off peak periods is £1150 per night for the use of 5 x bedrooms/up to 10 guests - £950 per night for 4 x bedrooms/up to 8 guests - £750 per night for 3 x bedrooms/up to 6 guests. The villa can accommodate 12 guests as the Media room converts into a sixth bedroom with Twin beds only and has an en suite shower room, AC, ceiling fan and wardrobe. Please contact me to discuss price for use of 6 x bedrooms/up to 12 guests.

Built on the site of an old sugar storage barn this villa is the perfect choice for relaxed, outdoor Caribbean living at its best. Elegant yet informal it is deceptively spacious and the views are breathtaking with spectacular sunsets. The decor throughout is very tasteful with a calm, neutral palette, creating a totally laid-back environment in the most idyllic, tropical setting. The open plan living deck and dining areas lead onto the swimming pool deck, all with incredible panoramic views of the west coast. A short 3 minute drive takes you to the famous Mullins Beach though it may be difficult to pull yourself away from the breeze-swept pool and outdoor Jacuzzi where many an ice cold local Deputy lager and delicious sun-downer cocktails have been enjoyed.

The three exceptional staff of private chef, butler and housekeeper make sure everyone has a truly relaxing holiday. They will greet you on arrival, offer helpful tips on where to go, book restaurants for you, organize transport if required and generally ensure you have everything you need. Chef will help plan menus and can cater for special dietary requirements.

It is impossible not to fall in love with The Old Sugar House where guests experience the beauty of Barbados and make amazing holiday memories to last a lifetime.

About the Owner

Born and raised in Barbados at Bakers Plantation, as a child, Sue Moss used to play in the storage barn that is now her island retreat. Situated on a ridge looking West onto the crystal waters of the Caribbean sea the house is nestled between two trees she and her siblings climbed during their school holidays. The design of the house focused on taking advantage of the amazing panoramic view and how best to utilise the natural breezes so welcomed from the East. The open plan design affords alfresco living the likes of which is difficult to replicate in the UK or many places the world over. All bedrooms having an ensuite affords all important privacy. Although she now resides in the UK, Sue and her family and friends spend as much time as possible in Barbados at their home from home.

A very special place.

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of eleven, ranging from age 25 to 80, stayed at The Old Sugar House to celebrate a year of special birthdays and wedding anniversaries. We wanted somewhere really special and TOSH did not let us down. Sue and Dave were absolutely marvellous right from the start and helped in so many ways, including arranging our transport and preliminary shopping.

The outside area of the house is so very relaxing and we spent the first few days just staring out at the fantastic view over the sugar cane fields to the sea , looking at the beautiful gardens and watching the wildlife.

The staff are fantastic - Terry is an amazing chef, he discussed our menus with us for each day and accommodated everyone's tastes with no problem at all. Julius was always on hand, doing our shopping, setting tables, serving the food, pouring the wine, making amazing rum punch! Stephanie discreetly tidied, cleaned and also washed our clothes which appeared back in the wardrobe as if by magic.

There's plenty to do if you can tear yourselves away from the house. We didn't hire a car but it was easy to arrange taxis to accommodate all of us. We hired a private catamaran for 3 hours with a company called Small Cats; this was a great trip which took us swimming with the turtles and snorkelling over wrecks. The walk down to Mullins Beach takes about 20 to 25 minutes and is easy if you're reasonably fit. Unfortunately the beach bar wasn't open when we were there but it all looked good and we were easily able to hire jet skis.

I could say so much more but suffice it to say - just go and find out yourself - you won't be disappointed.

Fabulous Old Sugar House

  • 5 of 5

We had a family party of 9 adults at The Old Sugar House for a week ... it was the best week we could imagine. The setting, the furnishings, the staff were all first class. Sue and David were very helpful prior to our holiday and arranged car hire and taxis for us. They answered all our queries with patience and good humour. Julius, Terry and Stephanie at the house were all very obliging and professional and made the holiday the success that it was. We will certainly look at returning in the future.

Further Amazing Memories At The Old Sugar

  • 5 of 5

This was my 4th stay at this wonderful property, I have stayed with Girlfriends, my partner and myself with a couple of friends, my partner and my children then aged 13/14 and another couple with there children similar ages, each time I hope that the house and staff are what I recall.......well this time I stayed with my 2 children now 19/20 my step children, 32/36 and there children 6/3 Oh and last but not least my mum, but we wont mention her age!!

The house was everything I recalled and possibly more!!

Julias who is the house manager could not have looked after us better, from accompanying us to the supermarket ( the previous week he had done all of the shopping for the guests) to making sure that we had everything required at both the dinner and breakfast tables, especially good at making sure that our wine glasses where never empty!!

One evening one of my grandchildren had what was the start of an ear infection at 11pm. ( diagnosed by Julias ) the adults had enjoyed the wine at dinner so Julias was our taxi down to the medical centre even waiting for us to be seen!

Then there is his famous "Rum Punch!" having also stayed in lots of hotels on the Island including Sandy Lane you will not find rum punch like it, apparently the secret is the limes but please don't tell Julias I shared this with you!

Terry our Chef was just amazing everything he cooked was just wonderful! as if we where not a crowd already we had friends on the Island so on one evening Terry cooked for a further 10 people all with fantastic results, nothing was to much trouble!

Stepheny ( Dusty )

I think the nickname we had for her says it all, Oh and the fact that we all returned home with cleaned ironed clothes in our suitcase, all the time having possibly 30 towels a day to launder!

Our days where mainly spent between fun in the pool and Jacuzzi with the amazing views from here to fun down on Mullins beach with its easy beach bistro ( Sunday afternoon a must with the band ) Sunbeds always available with quiet areas if required or as busy as you would like with the local watersport gentlemen who looked after us!

Sundowners where always a must back at the house for the view

Of the sunset!

As a family we travel most months a year usually to Europe enjoying 10 days usually in Feb March in the caribean my choice above all the hotels ( I have stayed in lots of them ) would be the personal service and wonderful surrounding of "The Old Sugar House!"

I booked upon our return for next year!

The Old Sugar House

  • 4 of 5

This was our 7th time, so something must be bringing us back.

The outside space is perfect with the most amazing view.

This year there was only 4 of us + granddaughter of 9 months whereas before we have been 9 adults. It is great whatever the number.

The house is very comfortable, well designed and relaxing.

The staff are super and very helpful.

We will certainly return again. It should really be rated 4 1/2 stars but the survey wouldn't let me do that!

'Bajan Bliss'!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Luxury 5* Hotels, a la carte restuarants, spa, infinity pools .... no longer for us!!!! The Old Sugar House is all of that but soooo much more!!!!! It really felt like our own holiday home in Barbados - for just too short a time - so very, very special! Privacy, Peace, Seclusion, Luxury - a totally decadent 10 days!!!

As soon as you walk through the door you are captivated, not just by the House itself but by the caribbean vista beyond. Open-plan living area, luxury interior design but with a cosy, casual Bajan feel that made you feel relaxed instantly! Beautiful bedrooms (beds so, so comfortable) 3 with private balcony areas, wonderful ensuite fittings. Magnificent Kitchen - not that we were in it that much of course as we made new friends of Terry (our Chef), and Andrew (his Bajan Rum Punch is so hmmmmm!! ... oh what a joy - fabulous Breakfasts and Dinners all in friendly consultation with our tastes - truly brill!!!! Delightful Stephanie, our Housekeeper, magically appeared daily - our suitcases returned home with clothes as laundered as when we arrived!!!

The design/layout of the house together with the clever arrangement of furnishings meant that you could all be together in a group or in different quiet areas.

We celebrated a Special Birthday as a Family and the privacy this gave us was unbeatable - Sue & Dave (The Owners) were exceptional - their desire to ensure that our time in their home was a happy one was outstanding!

Barbados is a beautiful Island with beautiful people, colourful towns to visit, Plantation Houses for Lunch, lovely bajan beaches with characterful eating places - great food. Swimming with the Turtles is a must - WOW!!! Our aim is to 'sashay' and live life the Bajan way!!!

Think you've have gathered by now that The Old Sugar House was more than special - vivid lifetime memories to treasure! Our expectations were high from the site review but were indisputably exceeded!!!!

Would give TOSH 10 Stars if we could - you really have to go!!!!

Thank you ... Thank you ... Thank you

Karen & Family


There is no "Recommended for" box for a 'Wedding' ... Perfect Location!!!!! Our Daughter has clocked it already!!!???

A Holiday to Remember

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Old Sugar House for ten perfect days this March. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Andrew and a wonderful welcome cocktail to set the holiday mood.

The house is spectacular with a perfect layout for a large or small groups. There were 12 of us - 9 adults and 3 children. The house is divided with a master bedroom and twin room upstairs, master and twin/double room downstairs, twin room over the opposite side of the ground floor and a double room in the garden area. It is a perfect division for families to be together but with the privacy of a separate bedroom area.

The house is well equipped with everything you will need. The chairs in the lounge area are so comfortable to sit and enjoy the warm breeze and take in the spectacular view of the ocean. We spent many an afternoon doing this while the children swam in the pool.

The pool and hot tub at the house are perfect. The pool has a large set of stairs at the entrance which make it great for smaller children to be able to play in the pool without going too deep.

Terry cooked breakfast and dinner for us daily. His use of spices is superb. Each day was a different meal with a different flavour. He introduced us to the Bajan way of cooking which was delicious. Two of the children in the group were made earlier kid friendly meals which kept them happy until the main meal was served. This was done without us asking and very much appreciated. Andrew waited on us and always made sure we had everything we needed. His rum punch was delicious which he made daily for us.

Stephanie kept all the rooms and the house looking in tip top condition. We rarely saw here but knew she had been there to clean up as everything was put back in its place each day. This is the only holiday where we came back with clean laundry thanks to Stephanie - what a treat.

The location of the house is perfect. It is a 5 minute ride to Mullins Beach which is a great beach with lots going on - water sports, beach chairs and a great restaurant for lunch. A short drive away is Holetown where there is a supermarket and fresh fish market. The fresh fish stand is great priced for some local fresh fish caught that morning.

During our stay we did a catamaran tour, Jammin, and went to Lobster Alive for lunch in Bridgetown. Both were a great experience. We highly recommend both of them.

What more can I say. The Old Sugar House is a beautiful, private home located in paradise.

From the Owner

Without doubt the incredible view was a massive Wow factor in the decision to build The Old Sugar House. The house almost ended up being called 'Wow' due to everyone's reaction when visiting the site. The house sits on arguably one of the best locations on the West Coast, just above Mullins. The cooling trade winds make this a preferred venue to the humidity, sand and lack of privacy on the beach. It is off the beaten track yet close to all the desirable hot spots on the West Coast. All our guests, whatever age, regard this as a massive plus.

From the Owner

The Old Sugar House overlooks rolling sugar plantation fields onto the blue Caribbean sea and it is this incredible vista that sets it apart from many other properties offering similiar accommodation. The unique open plan design immediately connects guests with the tranquility of its location. Although off the beaten track, the close proximity to Mullins Beach and the convenient facilities in nearby Speightstown and Holetown mean one does not have to spend too long travelling to a bank, supermarket, drugstore, bar/restaurant. Many Celebrities frequently stay and the house has been the venue for their special occasions. The house is often used for weddings and has been featured in Hello Magazine.
