Astra sits on a high coral cliff overlooking the sweeping arc of Foul Bay Beach on the southeast coast of Barbados. From this unique vantage, you can watch the sun rise out of the Atlantic and the sea turtles feeding below. If what you are looking for is perfect tranquiltity, privacy without isolation, security and serenity--but with every contemporary convenience--you will find it at Astra.

The house itself is an excellent example of island vernacular architecture, a three bedroom, two bathroom bungalow with shuttered windows on four sides and a wide verandah along the east and south side of the house, which face the beach and ocean.

The house has a 20 metre pool, set on the coral cliff with a spectacular view of the beach and bay below. This is a perfect pool for swimming laps or just having a relaxing dip after sunning on the wonderful pool deck. The deck itself has two gazebos, one for relaxing in the shade and the other with a bar, small fridge, sink and BBQ. There is also a bathroom and shower in this area. One of the most magnificent features of this pool is the infinity edge which overlooks the cliff and sea below giving one the impression of the sea being an extension of the pool.

Perfect for families of up to six, or two or three couples vacationing together, Astra offers casual comfort, seclusion, and easy access to one of the least-crowded beaches on the island of Barbados, all within 10 minutes of the airport and 30 minutes of Bridgetown.

The weekly rate includes daily maid service. Upon request, the services of an experienced cook, who can prepare the local seafood and island specialties, is also available for an additional charge.

Review: 
We stayed at Turtle Cove, now Astra, for four consecutive years during early March and found it a most enjoyable experience. Our last stay was for two weeks in 2011.The bungalow is comfortable but the jewel in the crown is the swimming pool that overlooks the Atlantic. It is a spectacular place to swim and play. There is also an entertainment area with a barbecue that is great for a party. The surroundings are beautifully maintained. There is a decent-sized kitchen with a nice refrigerator and stove. Junie, the friendly maid, will do your laundry in the washing machine. The high speed Internet works well as does the telephone. Shopping is a short drive away, either to a smaller local store or a North American style supermarket as Six Roads. A small “deli,” called Cutters, is also a short drive away. They have excellent flying fish sandwiches and a stock of wine if you happen to run out. For fancier fare, the Crane Resort and condo complex is also a short drive away. All-in-all, Astra is a bargain and eminently suitable for a family vacation and excellent value. My wife and I enjoyed it immensely. Our grandchildren and their parents rent another Stoutes property nearby and the kids definitely prefer our pool. It is away from the tourist hustle and bustle on Bridgetown side of the island. Astra is also close to the airport. The property manager, Lynn, is most helpful as is the rest of the Stoutes staff. We rented a vehicle from the same firm but we avoid driving at night, except on familiar routes. Driving on the left is a challenge for the first few days. We expect to return in the future. Meanwhile, we highly recommend it to others. Peter Rehak, Louise Rehak Toronto, Canada

Review: 
My Mothers wedding celebration was in Astra in 2004. Since then we have always wanted to go back and enjoy the house and its beautiful surroundings. This time we spent Christmas vacations there after 10 years and it is as wonderful as we remembered it. The pool is amazing and big. The view can not get better. The garden it beautiful and very big as well. Comfortable beds. Nice and private. The property Manager Lynn is very nice and made all the arrangements for the stay very easy. We definitely recommend this villa.

Review: 
We flat out loved Astra! Astra has beautifully groomed lawns and gardens, spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, nearby access to a nearly private beach, and a gorgeous infinity pool that drops off into the Atlantic. Unbelievably beautiful, and the price to rent the house is extremely reasonable given what you get in return. We rented Astra for a week in March 2015, attending a wedding in Barbados. Had we realized how lovely our outdoor setting was, we could have offered to host the wedding there! It was that gorgeous, and the photos don't do it justice. If you do want to entertain, the house is roomy enough plus the wrap around veranda would made a great space for a party. You also have an option to host a party by the spectacular pool, which has everything you need for a party during the day or at night. The three bedroom house was the perfect size for our family: two parents, two adult daughters. The photos on the website also do not do justice to the inside of the house, which is warmly inviting once you are there in person. (Some of the rooms have been repainted/redecorated. Also to note, the smallest bedroom has the only en suite bathroom.) No A/C, everything is open air: if you get hot, simply go out on the veranda to enjoy the fresh ocean breezes. The closeness to the Crane Resort, Bridgetown, and a couple of grocery stores meant that we easily mixed meals out with meals in. We thought we would have Junie, who maintains the house, cook for us, but we had too many wedding events going on for that to make sense. Junie herself was lovely and came every day to clean and make sure everything was in order. She made one dinner for us, and it was delicious. We are SCUBA divers and the jaunt up to the Hilton on the Western side of the island for diving with Barbados Blue was an easy drive. We also liked being close to the airport, for a number of different reasons. (Go to the Concorde Museum if you have an extra hour to kill before your flight leaves. It had a little bit of something interesting for everyone.) Finally, we received excellent service from Gillian and Lynn at the Ronald Stoute agency. I cannot recommend them too highly if you are renting in Barbados. Lovely people, they were very professional and patient with all my questions beforehand. In fact, everyone we dealt with in Barbados couldn't have been more genuinely friendly. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return to Astra again! Penelope & Ross

Review: 
There isn't much more to say other than what's been said already by other visitors, but this villa is highly recommended. The grounds are immaculately kept, the views are out of this world, especially from the pool!!! The moon was full for the last week of our stay and the way it lit up the atlantic at night was indescribably beautiful. And Junie, from the first day we were there felt like part of the family. Absolutely unforgettable trip.

Review: 
Astra villa provided an amazing experience for my wife and I that we will never forget. The location is beautiful and private, with stunning cliff and coastal views of the ocean. We were so blown away by the pictures that we decided to have our wedding there! On the day of our wedding, all of the guests shared our same sentiments, also saying they didn’t know a place like this existed in Barbados. : ) During our stay we enjoyed waking up to the ocean sounds and beautiful sunrise. Gillian and the team at Ronald Stoute were quickly accessible, and consistently took care of our questions in less than 24 hours. Junie the housekeeper was there daily to make sure everything was well maintained for us in the villa. She is a true gem and has the heart of an angel :) A team of gardeners were also present daily, looking after the lush greenery with care and precision. We were pleased with choosing Astra for our holiday and the location for our union. We would highly recommend this villa to others.

Review: 
As a 'prelim' to the review below... My wife and I have been traveling to the Caribbean regularly for the past 25 years or so. We fell in love with Barbados early in our traveling and ended up owning a beach house on the island for ten years. Once we sold it, we continued to revisit yearly (or more...). I just wanted to mention that to explain that we know Barbados very well...have stayed at an array of resorts and private rentals through the years. We booked Barbados for ten days at Astra for a number of reasons and could not be happier with our choice. Absolutely without doubt, the BEST place we have ever experienced on the island. The manicured grounds...the gardens...the villa itself...the pool (amazing) and the view from the pool deck to Foul Bay (even more amazing...) were outstanding. The villa is very very comfortable, spacious and has everything a group or family needs. (we were there with our children and grandson...). The St. Philip breeze from the sea just adds to an already perfect spot. I cannot thank Stoute and Sons enough for everything they did to ensure we had a perfect holiday. We will return in 2017, without doubt. If you are thinking of a villa holiday in Barbados to experience something away from hotels and crowds...book Astra. You will NOT be disappointed, that is for sure. Many thanks again. Laura and Steve Watt Orillia, Ont. Canada
