Illusion Luxury Villa

The Illusion luxury villa is one of the hidden secrets of the Barbados West Coast.  At first glance, it appears to be an ordinary coast with a mix of private homes, beachfront properties, and quaint local shops.

Tucked away in the trees, however, are some of the most beautiful and luxurious properties you could ever imagine.

The Barbados West Coast has been dubbed the Platinum Coast and is now known for its top-rated private golf courses, renowned restaurants, and luxury accommodations like Sandy Lane.


Illusion luxury villa is a 5-bedroom/5 bath property located in the Sugar Hill section of Sandy Lane, and offers luxury at its finest. 

A secluded road located farther inland provides access to the villa's gated entry.  

The Illusion villa is not a beachfront property.  Nevertheless, it does not fall short of perfection with its impressive hilltop vistas of the ocean, and beautifully landscaped surroundings.

So what's so great about Illusions?  Everything..

The villa is bright, airy, and provides lots of space - enough space to provide you with lots of privacy, without making you feel disconnected from the rest of the group.

On the flip side, its u-shaped configuration allows you to interact quite easily with other members of your party, if and when you need to. 

 It is multi-functional: great for families with kids, small wedding parties, or a small business group looking to convene outside of the traditional hotel setting.

Another great feature about Illusion is the fact that it was custom-built with the physically-challenged in mind.  The villa boasts an elevator for easy access between floors, and a dumb waiter in the kitchen for transporting meals back and forth.

The grand foyer of this luxury villa is nothing short of stunning. The large open space and high ceilings introduce the terrace with its amazing views of the pool, garden, and ocean, in that order.

The spacious king-sized master suite with its neutral/earth-tone color scheme sits at the right of the terrace. The suite is large, airy, and very spacious with French doors leading out to a balcony that overlooks the garden, pool area, and gazebos.

The comfy lounge chair, flat-screen TV with console and sideboard, lend to the uncluttered feel of the room.

The marble bathroom touts a double vanity, tub and separate interior stand- up shower. The walk-in cedar closet with its ample drawer and counter-top space provides lots of lighting and angled mirrors so you don’t miss a spot.

The small benched window, with its matching window treatments and throw pillows, gives this room a cozy feel.

The sitting room lies next door with its comfortable red & ivory-speckled sofas set in natural wood tone. A writing desk and a flat screen TV complement the room and add to the finishing touches.

The dining room lies at the opposite end of the terrace with its gleaming floors, white-washed ceiling, and elegant chandelier.  The dining room comfortably accommodates ten and is a great place for entertaining because of its roominess, open air, and views of garden and pool areas.

The villa is u-shaped, which makes it easy to view the pool area from every angle, whether you’re entertaining in the dining room, sun-worshiping on the terrace, or overlooking the balcony from the master suite.

The pool area is ideal for a social gathering with its manicured lawn and ocean views just beyond. It comes with plenty of loungers and a barbeque.

Two gazebos flank each side of the pool – one is a well-equipped mini bar/kitchenette in case you want to have a quick drink by the pool. The other seats four and is used for al fresco dining.
