Beachfront Villa, Platinum Coast Barbados (camdennook.com)
About Nick Sawyer
Celia is a world renowned interior designer and tv personality. Together with her family they fell in love with the island of Barbados in the early 2000's. We have a great love affair with the island and it is the first place we all loved to be together, with its great climate, restaurants and beaches.
Nick Sawyer purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Nick Sawyer chose Lower Carlton
A three double bedroom beachfront villa located on a beautiful quiet, sandy beach in St James on the Platinum coast of Barbados. The villa is equipped with a lovely sundeck with sun beds and an outside jacuzzi tub overlooking the turquoise sea, great for a sundowner. The Caribbean sea is generally calm and warm and suitable for swimming, snorkelling and fishing . The villa is a short drive either South to Holetown, offering fantastic shopping, bars and restaurants in the up-market Lime Grove development, and North to Speightstown which boasts a more rustic, local vibe, full of buzzing restaurants and bars. The Lone Star, one of the owner's favourite restaurants is a 15 minute walk from the villa along the beach (if you don’t mind getting a little wet!) or a 1 minute drive. There you can enjoy the view from the lovely cocktail bar, or lunch and dinner dining on the beachfront. The villa manager can happily arrange your very own watersports from the house, or a trip on a catamaran. Alternatively you can take a 5 minute drive to the famous Mullins Beach, with it's restaurant/beach bar and water-sports facilities.

Everything we needed and more!
Comfortable beds, loved the water front, enjoyed walking along the beach ...you had to walk through some water to keep going but it felt like an adventure! Loved how only the bedrooms were air conditioned...we don’t like being cold in the house! Most beautiful sunsets!
Blue Ocean, Fish, and Rum..oh my!
Overall, my family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Camden Nook. The location was magnificent- with the ocean at our backdoor and a local fish market and Rum bar just steps away. Our children enjoyed the many nearby beaches- all with beautiful, white sand and warm, blue water. Camdem Nook was well appointed and was suitable for the family. Melinda, the house "assistant" was also wonderful.
The only constructive criticism we have is that there were some items at the home that need attention and, had they been corrected, it would have given us an overall better experience. The main one is the hot tub, which was inoperable the entire week- none-the-less, it was still advertised as a nice feature of the property. Other small things like fallen down landscaping lights and general "quality" of the home. Nothing major...we could simply tell this was a rental property and not one's primary residence.
Again, this property and location worked for our family and we came away with a wonderful Barbados vacation experience and memories that will last a lifetime.
Thank you for the accommodations!
Dear Mr Yoder,
Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Camden Nook. The house is our second home and we love Barbados and make our guests experience as amazing as possible. Our check list is extensive and we have pictures sent of the house in readiness prior to each stay to make sure that the house is in tip top condition. I was surprised to hear about the hot tub as we have it maintained twice a week and I am very sorry if there was an issue with it . On speaking to Wendy she assured me that maintenance was called as soon as a problem was highlighted and it was rectified. Regarding the garden lighting I am confused, the lights are solar and pushed into the ground so perhaps they were effected during a stormy night as this can happen, however they should of been re levelled the very next day. We have a great team at Camden Nook and we offer one of if not the best beach front houses for the price on the West Coast. We pride ourselves in our reputation and myself and Wendy are always to hand should there be any issue, question or recommendations. I understand from speaking to Wendy that she supplied wet suits for your family during your stay and as usual went above and beyond to help guests have a great experience..We want you to have the perfect holiday experience.
Perfect beach house for a quiet and laidback vacation. Functional amenities, good location and stunning view. Excellent offering of in-home entertainment. Also loved the puzzles, games and books.
Lovely place to holiday. Great location, lovely property, super management and cook!
Camden Nook is the perfect place to relax. As a family, we loved the garden access to the sea, the wonderful lunches prepared by Shernel and we very much appreciated Wendy’s management and knowledge of all aspects of our stay. We’ll definitely be back.
We are delighted that your stay was enjoyable, we go the extra mile to make sure our guest have memorable holidays. We very much hope you return to us again soon.
Kindest regards Celia Sawyer
Everything you could need from a Caribbean holiday. Right on the beach. Comfortable. Private and yet near to everything the West Coast has to offer.
Beautiful beachfront Villa
Lovely beachfront Villa with plunge pool. This was our third stay at Camden Nook and it just keeps getting better. Lovely positioned plunge pool jacuzzi overlooking the sea. We had lovely lunches made for us and enjoyed the Sonos music facility.
Camden Nook is well placed for access to the main restaurants on the west coast and we visited Lone Star, the Cliff, Tides all being great beach front restaurants and Nishi in Holetown a fantastic Sushi and Pie restaurant!.
Also we liked Lemongrass (Asian/Thai) and Pepenero (Italian) in The Limegrove being great value.
We did water sports where we were picked up from villa.
Best trip being Calabaza catamaran cruise along with nights to Harbour lights.
1st street on Sundays being a great music street party night with street food also and one love bar serving very cheap drinks.
Tuesdays and Thursday band night at Bar in Chattel village.
Also went to Garrison savannah for races which was great.
Thanks to Nick and Celia for letting us stay in your lovely villa.

Beachfront Villa on a beautiful quiet sandy beach (camdennook.com). Warm turquoise water, great for swimming, snorkelling, fishing . Camden Nook is situated a short drive either from Holetown with it's upmarket shopping, restaurants and bars in Lime Grove or Speightstown for a more rustic experience of local bars and restaurants and the famous Nikki Beach Club. 5 minutes to the North is Gibbs Beach and the famous Mullins Beach with its beach bar/restaurant and water-sports facilities. 3 min drive or a 15 min beach walk, (you may get a little wet!) from the villa is the Lone Star Restaurant which has a great cocktail bar and beachfront dining. If you prefer something a little more Bajan; the John Moore Rum Bar (one of the Barbados presidents watering holes) is walking distance. Here you mix with the locals playing dominos and enjoy a cold drink on the beach.
Other Activities: Polo
Golf: Westmoreland is a very short drive away from the villa
