Sandy Lane, St. James, Barbados - 5 bedroom villa
Grendon House is an exquisite five bedroom villa set within the breathtaking Sandy Lane Estate. This lovely home embraces you the minute you drive through the beautiful wrought-iron gates and into its lush, manicured grounds.
No detail has been spared: this home features many striking eating areas including the breakfast nook, which has a lovely vantage point over the pool, what a way to start the day. Dinner al-fresco is remarkable under the Caribbean Stars, alongside the tranquil Saline pool or inside the Gazebo with the stone-top lazy-Susan table adjacent to the large Barbeque. Back within the beautiful coral stone walls of the main house is a formal dining room with seating for 12. Whether it’s a formal dinner, a quick breakfast before a round of golf, or a lazy lunch pool-side, Grendon House is the perfect setting.
For those that like a dip in the ocean and sand between their toes, your stay at Grendon House includes a Cabana at Sandy Lane Beach, giving access to the beautiful beach, beach chairs and use of the Property Owners Facilities including a bar and comfortable seating areas.
Grendon provides an abundance of activities within its grounds, including lounging by the serene pool, where you can spend the whole day working on a beautiful tan in the brilliant Barbados sunshine. There are many sun loungers for your use and a shaded gazebo ideal for a fresh-air afternoon nap. Downstairs there is a large games room perfect for hosting a ping-pong tournament or a hand of poker. The lovely spacious patio upstairs which looks out onto the strikingly landscaped gardens has plenty of seating, and a bar where one could easily whip-up some afternoon cocktails: every hour is happy hour in Barbados!

This villa gave the true meaning of a luxury vacation. The house itself is a majestic structure with lots of historical detail. The service by the staff was on par with the surroundings. The pool and the landscape accentuated the entire experience! We had a wonderful time

Terrific family vacation, Staff was wonderful, setting was perfect, the beach lovely, and the place extremely comfortable. A storm knocked the Internet out; but the local property managers did everything they could to restore it.

Grendon House is a stunning villa! Beautifully decorated, the owner obviously has a good eye with interiors! It is by far the best villa we have stayed in! The staff were first class. How wonderful it was not to have to think about meals, they were taken care of and every meal was very tasty, packed full of flavours. The cooking pleased all of the family which is saying something! Thank you so much girls for looking after us so well!! We will be back!

Fantastic stay at the Grendon House. The vacation was made extra special by the culinary expertise of the cook and impeccable house staff, Amaria and Lorraine.

We will definitely be back and for a longer stay next time!

BEST VILLA ON SANDY LANE!
This is our third visit to beautiful Grendon House. We were here for Christmas and New Year with family and back again with friends for a week in March. We have stayed in many Barabdos villas and this is by far our favourite. The house is absolutely stunning - beautifully decorated and styled with many areas to eat and sit out to enjoy the gorgeous gardens and pool area. The staff are wonderful. Always cheerful and friendly - wonderful meals were served under the gazebo at lunch time and under the stars by the pool at night. Our best memories are of evenings sitting out around the big round table enjoying the cool evening breezes in the palm trees and Johns wonderful cooking. Having the Sandy Lane owners club beach 2 mins away was perfect. We tried other beaches but kept returning to "our own" one. Highly recommend this fabulous villa.
SBL Date of Stay: July 2015
What an amazing vacation my extended family had at Grendon House. There were 9 of us - ages 60+ to 7, and all ages enjoyed the vacation home for a week-long holiday. We couldn't have asked for more. From the ever-attentive house staff (Nancy made us some fantastic traditional Bajan dishes!) to the calm and relaxing pool to the cool and comfortable sitting rooms and bedrooms, we enjoyed it all. The photos do not do the house true justice! If rest and relaxation is what you are after, Grendon House is the place. Some days we barely left the house, but when we did venture out in the rental cars, we found grocery shopping and stores nearby. The house manager helped us with directions to drive into town, and we visited the caves and other local attractions. Overall, it was a great holiday. Staying at Grendon House definitely elevated our expectations for future vacation villas!
Wow! Couldn't Ask for More! Date of Stay: July 2015
QUITE SIMPLY FANTASTIC

CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK NEXT YEAR
It's our last morning and I don't want to leave! Grendon House has been heaven. By far the nicest villa we have ever rented. We loved the beautiful tropical gardens - ginger lilies, frangipani and lobster claws. The many relaxing places to sit and read or chat. The games room for epic table tennis tournaments, the bar for making up tropical cocktails using fresh coconuts from the garden. The Staff - Nancy your cooking is superb. Amaria and Lorraine were so cheerful and easy to be around. Nothing was too much trouble. We love the beach - our early morning swim today will stay with me forever. the beach was so tranquil and perfect. We also loved Holders' Farmers market on Sunday morning, with live music and great organic food and souvenirs. I can't wait to come back next year!

WOW! SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!
This place is simply beautiful and like paradise. It was a great place to take our large and loud family. We could have great family bonding time and not bother the neighbors. The food was wonderful and the staff very attentive. We loved sipping cocktails by our own private pool and having a different table to eat every meal. This house is relaxing and a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We all enjoyed our stay and only wished it could have lasted longer. Best wishes.

The Griffiths Date of Stay: April 2013
Amaria, John, Rodney & Lorrraine welcomed our two families with open arms and Bajan hospitality. What a delight to have a personal chef, who cooked with love and accommodated our dietary requests. John's curry and barbeque meals beat any restaurant experience. Rodney was both attentive and professional. We enjoyed getting to know him and sharing stories. Lorraine was an excellent asset to the team. What a gift to have clean, fresh laundry daily! What can we say about the wonderful Amaria! Her warm smile and contagious laughter brought joy to the day. She was committed to making our stay enjoyable and carefree. Grendon House is a beautiful, well-appointed retreat for our party of 8. We Would highly recommend Grendon House to our friends. The indoor/outdoor living exceeded our expectations! Thank you for providing an amazing staff and for allowing us to use your beautiful home!
