Atención a los huéspedes
Our family live on the property in the upstairs portion of the main plantation house. There are also 4 other apartments a short distance from the Orchard apartment. During some parts of the year the property is very quiet and during other times there is a lovely level of sociability to be had with us and the other guests. Each apartment provides enough privacy that guests can choose to interact as much as they choose. Guests of the Mango Suite can expect there to be other guests renting the remaining 2 rooms in the Orchard Apartment and sharing the kitchen, patio and lounge room with up to 2 other couples.
Sion Hill Plantation is in the northern part of St. James Parish. The plantation was once an over 300 acre sugarcane plantation much of which is still used to grow feed grass for ponies. The development of adjacent properties has brought Sion Hill into an era of luxury accommodation in an otherwise serenely rural area. Neighbourhood walks and country side picnics are popular within our, and surrounding properties.
On a tiny island you are never far from anything. Speightstown and Holetown are both within 12 minutes drive and offer a vast range of shopping, sightseeing, tourist and relaxation opportunities, ranging from luxury brands in Holetown, to the local fisheries market in Speightstown.
There is Golfing available within a 10 minute drive (Apes Hill, Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane golf courses). Tennis courts are available at Sugar Hill, a 5 minute drive, and every possible water sport and beach activity including diving, snorkelling and water-skiing can be easily arranged.
The beaches of the west coast offer blue views and calm waters. Many have beach chairs, local eateries and drinks served for a small fee; Mullins bay is popular for families, with easy swimming and fun water sports available, as well as a beach bar offering weekend entertainment.
Swim with the turtles, spot a celebrity at Sandy Lane beach, enjoy a sunset catamaran cruise, learn to scuba dive, tour the island on your own or take a 4x4 safari, see our underground caves, dine at top Zagat rated restaurants or feel the sand between your toes seaside dining at a recommended local spot. Barbados offers such a variety of opportunities, all easily accessible from Sion Hill Plantation that you will not be disappointed.
We offer concierge services and local advice free of charge of course.
Renting a car is definitely recommended to best see the island and all it has to offer, unless your ideal vacation is relaxing by our gorgeous pool and not lifting a finger, which is ok too!
Parking is free at Sion Hill, and throughout the island at all beaches and attractions.
Airport transfers to and from Sion Hill are complimentary; if required.
There is a local transport system of city buses and privately run shuttle vans, however these are generally unreliable from our area and more difficult to navigate - if you are the adventurous type this may be for you.
Most tour operators will provide shuttle services to and from their facilities.

Sion Hill Plantation has been my family home for my lifetime and quite a few before me! The plantation was once a working sugar plantation and therefore the plantation 'yard' as we call it was filled with tractor sheds, silos, managers residences, sugar cane cutting and hauling machinery! The plantation had its own boiling house and windmill with deep well to pump water. Having the undulating lands and low soil depth that we do, sugar was never a very profitable business for us and quite difficult as all canes needed to be harvested by hand! We cut our last canes down in 2010, plunging us swiftly into the hospitality industry. The apartments we have for rent now are the old plantation buildings transformed into lovely rent-able spaces, and we are looking for some equally lovely guests to fill them with!
My family and myself run the accommodation business ourselves, along with a team of very dedicated housekeepers and maintenance staff. We are Canadian/Barbadians (and an Aussie for good measure), who are all well traveled and definitely do our share of bouncing around the world. On the property live 3 generations of my family, and some of our long term tenants who have young kids, (thats a total of 9 of us year round). We are the kind of hosts who like to become good friends after just one stay, we are here to help with any and everything and really enjoy making our guest's stay in Barbados and at Sion Hill the best experience!
We try our best to be frugal, recycle, grow our own produce when we can and have lots of great initiatives coming up in the near future in terms of renewable energy. We are the type of people who will likely have you over for drinks or a BBQ while you are staying here, and there will certainly be a few sunset celebrations with a glass or 2 of wine on the pool deck. We really like our land and the space around us, we like the privacy provided by living in the country, and we like the quiet and serene feeling that Sion Hill has. We have a love of pets and have a few rescued animals, we feed the birds and love our wondering monkeys (from a distance). We enjoy the ocean and diving and belong to a few different groups and initiatives to keep our islands oceans safe and healthy. We hope that you will like these things too and look forward to meeting you in the future!
