Must Haves for A Creative’s Retreat at Beach Houses

Beach Houses promises that you’ll really getaway. The allure of that guarantee is one that can’t be ignored by several types of travellers. From a writer looking to finish their first book or a family looking to escape winter, Beach Houses is a beyond idyllic choice. In this “Must Haves” series, we list all of the things that are already here to make your vacation perfect and some the things you’ll need to bring to make it uniquely yours. Today, we look at the Solo Creative Retreat.                                                                                                 

Come Prepared For

Depending on your space needs, you’ll likely book the one-bedroom suite or the one-bedroom villa. Both feature an infinity-edge pool, hot tub and a patio deck for dining and lounging. You will experience the audio-visual magic of the Atlantic Ocean crashing powerfully on large rocks in the distance while you enjoy your private retreat space, complemented by your own lush tropical garden. 

Come Prepared With

Having settled into the perfect destination for your creative juices to thrive, you’ll need to assemble all the things you brought with you from home – or from Barbados:

Your favourite note pad(s) and Post Its – Because for every big or little idea we have, it would be nice to have somewhere to write it down.

A journal to document each day – Over the course of your stay, make note of what you did, what worked and what didn’t, so you’ll face each day and your next Beach Houses retreat even better.

Your yoga mat – Don’t miss out on a morning stretch with a view. Clear your mind and meditate for a blank canvas to create upon.

Hiking shoes – When you need a change of scenery, you can join local hiking groups on nearby the East Coast or anywhere around the island.

Rum from one of our local rum shops – Visit a rum shop and take home one of our many local choices like Foursquare or Mount Gay Rum. If you’re lucky, one glass may inspire a clever idea.

A set of swimsuits – When you need a break, you can clear your head and dive into the pool for a swim. Alternatively, you could work from your hot tub if the lounge chairs aren’t doing the trick.

Anything that makes it feel like home – Make this getaway feel like home by bringing along a framed photo of a loved one or anything other object that reminds you that you have a support system elsewhere.
