This unique, completely detached two-storey villa with its own private gated garden in this exclusive West Coast complex is ideal for your next family retreat. Situated on a low sea cliff with private stairs leading down to a stunning sheltered bay, this is a truly special place for families or groups of friends looking for privacy but also room to entertain.

The villa offers three very spacious bedroom suites, all en suite with air conditioning, ceiling fans and its own terrace. The tropical gardens are lush with a pool terrace for outdoor dining and sun loungers. Guests can access the gorgeous lagoon styled resort swimming pool with cool coral stone sun deck via the gate at the end of the garden. From the pool deck the secluded beach, with soft white sands and exceptional swimming and snorkeling is only steps away.

Secret Garden is really an excellent choice for groups that plan to entertain. The garden provides ample space for BBQing and lounging, there are two additional dining areas inside including one in the coral stone fernery dedicated to entertaining with a sit up bar complete with sink, fridge and wine rack. The sunken living area is air conditioned but opens out completely to flow smoothly outside to the pool deck.

For those looking to venture out from this private oasis Speightstown is just a short drive north with many options of ocean front dining and casual chic beach bars, a lovely art gallery and even a local museum, while Holetown is to the south and a popular destination for those looking for chic bars and nightclubs. Water sports, golf and other island activities can be arranged with the help of our concierge services. The dedicated cook and housekeeper at the villa will ensure a relaxing vacation.

Dear Ann-Marie, Kelly-Ann and other staff of Secret Garden,

Thank you so so much for everything you all have done for us on this vacation. Thank you to Ann-Maire for coming and introducing herself. Both chefs were amazing and we've never had such amazing pasta sauce :) Kelly-Anne, you are wonderful! You are a saint! Thank you for allowing everyone to enjoy our vacation without having to worry about dishes, laundry or anything else. You all were so friendly and accommodating. The villa was stunning and we were blown away! This experience has been one we will never forget and we have you all to thank for that.

The Dunkerley Family

We've had an amazing stay at the Secret Garden. Patricia and Kelly-Ann could not have been more attentive! We will miss them both! Patricia cooked me the most amazing vegan food and Kelly-Ann did the most beautiful flower arrangements. In our opinion, this is the best villa on the lot! We've loved having the large plunge pool for our little boy with the flexibility of going to the larger pool. We would love to come back here again and would definitely recommend your villa to our family and friends!

The Umberto Family
