The SpaceBelair Great House has five bedrooms and sleeps up to ten people. The lower floor consists of a formal dining room, large kitchen, one bedroom, and one bathroom and a wrap-around verandah with patio furniture for relaxing in the breeze overlooking the sea, pool or tennis court. The dining room is a definite reminder of those regal days with a wonderful antique mahogany dining table that seats twelve, mahogany antique sideboards, and a crystal chandelier. With high ceilings and glass panel doors that open our to the lawns facing the ocean and tennis court, the dining room catches the ocean breezes and is a magnificent setting for either formal or more relaxed meals enjoyed by large families or groups of friends. The well equipped kitchen with granite countertops opens out onto the ocean front verandah, which is only a short distance from the sparkling freshwater swimming pool. The bedroom on this floor faces the ocean and has two single beds. Adjacent to the downstairs bedroom, there is a full bathroom with a shower.
The upper floor has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. On the back verandah is the living space with push-out shutters and a French door leading out to the covered upstairs wrap-around verandah. This is a tastefully decorated sitting area where guests may relax and watch television or just sit and chat. This verandah also has a bar, an informal dining area that seats eight, and a fully-equipped kitchen, which makes it unnecessary to even go down the stairs to the main kitchen.
The bedrooms all look out over the pool and ocean. The master bedroom, with a king-size bed, has an en-suite bathroom, which adjoins a small bedroom with two single beds. The other two bedrooms on this floor have a king and a full sized bed respectively and share the second bathroom.
The verandah overlooking the ocean on the upper level is ideal for enjoying the splendid view of the pool, tennis court, expansive lawns and gardens, and ocean - a perfect setting for sipping cocktails and enjoying the moonlight in the evenings. There is comfortable teak and wicker outdoor furniture on this verandah.
The pool deck is slightly raised and gated making Belair Great House child friendly. There are chaise longues and Adironack chairs around the pool and a covered gazebo where guests may have lunch or dinner at the large round table which seats ten and overlooks the pool which can be lighted at night. There is also a brick barbeque grill on the deck for easy outdoor cooking and a gas barbeque is also available. Belair has its own tennis court and tennis lessons with a pro can usually be organized at a reasonable extra cost.
Many of Barbados' finest beaches are within a five-minute drive of the property and Dawlish Beach and Falmouth Beach are within easy walking distance.
The laundry has both washer and dryer. Daily maid service is provided, and for those guests who would prefer to try the local cuisine in the comfort of their villa, arrangements can be made for a cook.
If more accommodation is required the old coach house which is less than 100 yards from Belair Great House within the fenced property has been tastefully converted into a three bedroom cottage. The coach house has been finished with hardwood floors, travertine tiles, granite counter tops, and coral stone rendering and ruble stone walls, which preserve the old world character of the property.
The cottage features a full-size antique billiards table and tastefully designed bar with a wine cooler, small fridge and microwave below. The billiards room has double French doors opening out to the lawns, allowing the room to catch the fresh breeze blowing in off the ocean. There is one double bedroom downstairs and two double bedrooms upstairs that open on to covered balconies that overlook the ocean. All three bedrooms have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. Upstairs there is a sitting area with cable TV and a large flat-screen Apple computer in an alcove with internet access.
