The Great House
Turtle Beach is on the west coast of Barbados, near to Speightstown, in the parish of St Peter. The Great House was designed as a family house by celebrated local architect Ian Morrison in the traditional plantation style and is constructed from local coral stone.
The main house’s ground floor has a spacious entrance hall, reception rooms, Piano Room, wrap-around covered terraces and one bedroom suite. The sweeping staircase leads up to a further three bedroom suites. Three suites have double beds, and one has twins. All the suites are individually furnished and the beds, dressed in Ralph Lauren linen, are sumptuously comfortable. The three upstairs suites have individual balconies, while the ground floor suite opens onto a cobbled courtyard.
The four chattel houses close to the main house were added later and are also traditional in style – they are arranged in two pairs. Each pair interlinks, making them ideal for families with younger children. They can be furnished with double or twin beds. The chattel houses open out onto their own verandas, with the gardens beyond. Like the suites in the main house, all the chattels have en suite bathrooms with walk-in showers, air conditioning and safes.
The house stands in approximately 1.5 acres of what is generally acknowledged to be one of the most beautiful gardens on the island. These grounds spill onto the white sand beach with its palm trees and, beyond, the blue waters of the Caribbean. The main house’s interior has recently been extensively refurbished in a style that blends East Coast sophistication, Barbadian flair and beachside informality.
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.
The Great House positively welcomes children!
