Prudence House

Four bedroom house

Prudence House Pool

Prudence House has an interesting history. Formerly owned by Laura, Duchess of Marlborough, in her autobiography she speaks fondly of Prudence and "Randolph Churchill, to whom we lent Prudence one year for Christmas when his health was failing, 'liked it very well' to use his own words."

Prudence is situated in a private road on the West Coast of Barbados in the Parish of St James. It is set 150 yards from the beach, accessible by footpath between the Colony Club and Glitter Bay Hotels. The Coral Reef and the Royal Pavilion are a few minutes walk along the beach and they all welcome non-residents to their Beach Bar and Restaurant facilities.
Holetown is 3 minutes by car and Bridgetown is 20 minutes.

Prudence House bedroom

Prudence is built of coral stone in the traditional Barbadian style, and set in ¾ acre of secluded tropical gardens. The large main garden and 45 foot long free form pool are surrounded by trees and shrubs offering total privacy.

The house is on one level and comprises:
The Blue Bedroom: King size bed with bathroom en suite
The Mahogany Bedroom: Twin beds adaptable to kingsize with shower room en suite
The East Bedroom: Three single beds with bathroom ensuite
Garden Cottage Suite : Double bed, dressing room with fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, large shower room
(All bedrooms have the latest near silent remote control air-conditioning units)
The Dining Room: The table seats 8 comfortably and this room also has a satellite TV viewing area.
The Garden Room: A beautifully spacious open area overlooking the garden and pool. An ideal spot for lounging during the heat of the day and evenings. A circular coral stone dining table graces this delightful area and seats 8-10 people. It is the perfect spot for a long lazy lunch.
The Kitchen: Well equipped with a large freezer (for those bringing 'English' supplies) Normally only used by the staff.

Prudence House Garden Room

The house is totally secure with a large gate and attractive wrought ironwork plus an alarm system. There are security gates between the Garden room and Dining room.

The house is managed during your residence and included in the quoted price is a Housekeeper/Cook and a Maid. Meals will be prepared to your specifications (within reason) and a Gourmet Chef and Butler can be arranged at an extra cost for those special nights if you wish to entertain or require a more International Flavour.
