Summer will soon be over up north, but here in Barbados it's only just starting.
We're offering a special summer discount of GBP70/US$99 per night so you can get your share of the sunshine.
Welcome to Somnia, a holiday haven in the heart of the Garrison World Heritage Centre and only minutes away from the wonderful beaches, bars and restaurants of Christchurch, Barbados.
Somnia is ideal for visitors who want easy access to the best beaches on the south coast, such as the famous Accra Beach (Rockley) and Hastings Boardwalk, as well as a fantastic range of bars, fast food outlets and fine dining restaurants to please all palates. There are useful amenities close to hand, such as supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, wine merchants and public transport. Many popular visitor attractions are within easy reach, such as the Garrison Savannah, where visitors can mingle with locals and enjoy some thrilling horse racing during the season, the George Washington House and the Barbados Museum. Bridgetown, the capital, is a short drive away, with a range of shops, including the famous Cave Shepherd department store, and historical sights.
Somnia offers guests a comfortably furnished home- from- home. The spacious air-conditioned master bedroom has a double bed and offers views over the Caribbean sea. It has built-in wardrobes and masses of storage space. It opens onto a large, modern, tiled en-suite wet-room with a hot and cold shower and double vanity units. The second bedroom is also air-conditioned and offers a double bed, ample storage space and its own adjoining bathroom.
A spacious, comfortably furnished open-plan lounge and dining area offers excellent views over the beautiful aquamarine waters of the Caribbean sea. After a day out at the beach or exploring Barbados’s many attractions, you can relax in the comfortably furnished living room; watch cable television, play board or card games, have a few rounds of dominoes, read a book from our small library or enjoy an eclectic selection of music. High speed internet is available throughout the property.
Somnia is ideal for guests who prefer self-catering options. We offer a fully equipped kitchen with a good sized fridge-freezer, microwave, six burner hob, oven with a grill, juicer, rice cooker, food processor, coffee grinder, coffee machine and just about every piece of kitchen equipment you will need. Perfect for guests wanting to try their hand at some Bajan dishes such as macaroni pie and flying fish.
For those who prefer not to use their precious holiday time in the kitchen, there is a range of nearby restaurants and bars offering breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks, as well as a number of fast-food outlets offering free home delivery.
A special feature of Somnia is its large open veranda, furnished with easy lounging chairs and a dining table shaded from the sun. Take time to relax in an adirondack as you enjoy a lazy breakfast, while planning the day's activities. In the afternoon, enjoy a chilled beer or wine, rum punch or whatever cocktail takes your fancy, (help yourselves to fresh coconuts and limes from the trees in the garden), while watching the antics of our resident family of green monkeys, or marvelling at the humming birds as they hover over the flowering plants festooning the veranda. In the evenings, you can enjoy spectacular sunsets over the Caribbean. Whatever time of day, the veranda is the perfect place to relax.
Somnia is situated on a hill overlooking the Caribbean and is often blessed with a fresh breeze. But if you feel the heat you will enjoy the solar-powered air conditioning in the bedrooms, and all rooms have ceiling fans, as well as an array of floor and table fans for your comfort.
A high chair and travel cot is provided for infants.
Somnia accommodates four to five guests, so it is the perfect choice for a family, a couple or group of friends.
The apartment is on the first floor of a detached house in a quiet residential cul-de-sac. There is free parking for up to three cars in the driveway, and you are welcome to make use of the garden and the ground floor patio area.
A housekeeper is available who will clean the apartment and change towels and bedding on a weekly basis. She will also give you a hand with your laundry if requested. The washing machine and dryer are in a separate utility room behind the house.
