Pool, Jacuzzi & Grounds
The lower pool deck and terrace of SeaBreeze can be accessed by steps from the upper balcony, or through a lovely lattice-work arbour with spectacular bougainvillea from the front garden. Occupants of the lower floor bedrooms have direct access onto the pool deck.
Surrounded by an attractive paved terrace furnished with half a dozen padded recliners and armchairs, the swimming pool is of an unusual irregular L-shape. It has a maximum length and width of around 9 x 8.5 metres with depths ranging from one to 1.9 metres. Swimmers won’t be doing Olympic lengths, but it is of more than adequate size for a cooling dip and some exercise. The terrace is something of a sun trap and it was quite surprising how warm the water became over the course of the day.
Adjacent to the pool deck, a very pleasant seating area has been created beneath the upper terrace. Shaded from the direct sun for all but the last hour or two of the day, but open on three sides, this lovely area is furnished with leather sofas and armchairs plus a hammock.
Located just above the pool is a 3.7 metre square Jacuzzi. With a covered gazebo-style roof decorated with pink and blue latticework and surrounded by wonderfully vibrant tropical plants, this attractive feature is likely to entertain many a guest, even if only heated by the sun. With a maximum depth of around a metre, the Jacuzzi will comfortably seat SeaBreeze’s maximum occupancy of ten adults.
Adjacent to the pool is a traditional charcoal barbeque. If you keep an eye on the bay and wait for the fishermen to return to the port, you can nip down to Scarborough and dine on the latest catch. As much as we looked forward to slapping a few fish steaks onto the barbeque, time sadly ran out before we got the opportunity to do so.
Steps and a gate lead from the gardens to the rocky shoreline. Adventurous guests can try snorkelling or crab fishing here. Alternatively, at low tide, they can swim or clamber across the rocks to a small and secluded private sandy beach just two hundred metres or so away. It is far more likely, however, that guests will prefer the easy five-minute walk along the road to beautiful Bacolet beach. More sheltered than most beaches along the Atlantic coast, this lovely bay generally offers excellent swimming and has the added bonus of being home to the Blue Haven Hotel’s beach bar, which seems to have improved dramatically in the past year.
SeaBreeze undoubtedly represents a wonderful holiday base for groups or families of up to twelve people. The size of the villa and wonderful gardens make it an ideal place for a wedding party. The grounds would make a truly lovely setting for a wedding ceremony.
The villa is spacious, comfortable and adequately equipped. Everything you need is provided. Frankly, the biggest problem will be stirring from the sun loungers and finding the motivation to get out and about.
We have no reservations about recommending SeaBreeze and look forward to our return.
