From the moment one enters The Great House through a semi-circular coral stone portico into the cool serenity of a double height hall dominated by a wide swath of stairs, one is instantly reminded of the heady bygone days of Caribbean splendor. Once the Barbados hideaway of Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and his elegant wife Victoria, this is a beach house that has played host to the great and the good of stage, screen, politics and high finance.

The main house with its Palladian influences is framed with jalousie shutters; sweeping verandahs face the sea and latticework covered walkways connect the bar, dining areas and the four charming guest cottages designed as indigenous chattel houses, all cleverly blended into the landscape. The ground floor of the main house has a spacious entrance hall, reception rooms, piano room, wrap-around covered terraces and one bedroom suite and a bedroom suite with cobbled courtyard.  The sweeping staircase leads up to the remaining three bedroom suites, each with its own balcony. All four suites are uniquely furnished with sumptuously comfortable beds dressed in Ralph Lauren linen; three have double beds while one has twin beds.

Every aspect of The Great House encourages guests to enjoy themselves in the way they choose. There is ample space to indulge yourself in moments of solitude, yet the arrangement of the house and chattels around the pool invites sociability. The service, while always attentive, is unobtrusive.
