Jarrow, a 19th century coral-stone villa, is nestled on the beautiful south coast of Half Moon Bay, St. Lawrence. Its gentle elevation allows you to sit on the sun deck and watch the fishermen go out to the sea early, and return with the day's catch -- which you can have freshly prepared in the comfort of your villa.
The gingerbread-style villa boasts three double bedrooms, two large bathrooms, and spacious mirrored dressing room. From the foyer, living/dining area, sun deck and well-equipped kitchen, you can enjoy the spectacular views of the sea.
The unique beach is at your doorstep. It's protected by a reef, and is excellent for swimming in the day or at night.
The skylights in the bedrooms and lounge enable you to view the beauty of the moonlight, and to welcome the morning sun. The southeast breezes of the Caribbean sea continuously waft through the villa, keeping it fresh and cool.
There are ideal swimming conditions for children as high tide is always low in the bay.
We are a 15-minute drive from the airport, and are close to leading restaurants, nightclubs, supermarkets, shops, and golf courses. Snorkeling, sailing, scuba diving, and windsurfing are available in the bay.

Let our Previous guest answer this question:
2) The best vacation spot on the island! Left on 04/17/2014 for a stay in March 2014. This was our second time spending our vacation at Villa Jarrow and we could not have asked for anything more. The location, view and accommodations were just perfect. We saw many people walking by on the beach, looking at us with envy as we lounged or barbecued on the front balcony overlooking the ocean. In addition to the Villa being a great place to stay, the water out front was perfect for swimming. Clear blue and calm, with beautiful sand bars that we could walk or swim out to. We even saw a sea turtle swimming through the water on many of the days we sat out front.
The location was the best! Despite driving around the whole island, and visiting several other parishes and beaches, we came to the conclusion that we still thought ours was the best of the bunch! We would definitely return again and have recommended Villa Jarrow to many of our friends already. Timothy was the best - he called to check in on us several times during the week always jolly and willing to help us out with any inquiries we had! He even drove us to the grocery store on the first day so we could stock up our kitchen for the week! Thanks Timothy for making our stay as amazing as it was!

Villa Jarrow was built by the original owner of Jarrow in the Industrial Coal Mining Town of Jarrow on the River Tyne. Its on one of the best beaches on the Island and one of the unique features of this Beach at Half Moon Bay is the historical pratice of Fresh Fish available in the Bay . The fishermen catch them fresh off the Reef and prepare them ready for the grill for our guests.
At this location you are within walking distance to all requisites for an enjoyable Holiday. A Taxi ot hired car is only necessary if you are going for an Island Tour. You can also swim with the Turtles in the Bay... The patio of the Villa Overlooks the Beach..... The Bay is where you will experience a Fantastic Fireworks display on the Water. This is put on by the businesses in the St. Lawrence Gap.
There are many other activities awaiting Honeymooners, If you enjoy lovely Sunsets, welcoming the morning Sun, looking across the water to a blue Horizon, Jogging along a wide long beach, snorkeling and being within waklking distance to all night life and the best restaurants on the Island then this Villa is your Home away from Home. Its owner will combine his Resort Experience to create that lasting Vacation experience that you deserve. Experience
I have stayed here many times and each time is a s good if not better.
The place is clean and has had a good bit of work done keeping it fresh.
It is a very small walk to the amenities in St Lawrence Gap and is right on a quiet beach with a sheltered area for swimming.
We spent 10 days here in the new year and had the most fabulous time. We dealt with Timothy from start to finish. The man is a complete professional. Completely honest and thoroughly helpful. He arranged for the taxi to pick us up at the airport and was there to greet us at the villa. The villa is well equipped, spotlessly clean and perfectly situated. I cannot imagine there's a better location anywhere on the island. There are 2 spectacular beaches within a couple of minutes walk that are not packed but are quite well populated but right outside the rear doors of the villa is a beautiful bay that couldn't have had more than a handful of people on it in all the 10 days we were there. From the deck you will see the 3 sea turtles that shelter in the bay. They will let you swim within touching distance of them. St Lawrence Gap has many very good restaurants and bars. They all offer something a little different from each other. I had read a review of the villa that complained about noise and whilst I agree that it may have spoilt their stay but can you expect to stay in the busiest, liveliest part of the island and not expect to hear late night music. We rang Timothy for help and advice a couple of times during our stay. He always picked up and was more than happy to help. Our only downside of the complete trip was being ripped off by the vodka bar across the road. Twice as much as anywhere else, plastic cups, hardly any drinks to choose from. Do yourself a favour avoid this place, there's literally hundreds of better places to drink.
Do yourselves a bigger favour BOOK THIS VILLA. It's paradise
Thanks Timothy for everything
What can we write about Villa Jarrow that hasn't been said already. The coral stone villa is unique in its style and the natural stone walls also help to keep the villa cool, especially the back bedrooms. In the living room you get the soft sea breezes and beautiful sunsets. The outside facilities are more than adequate with huge veranda, plenty of recliners, a shower, BBQ, absolutely everything you need. The soft powder sand and pristine clear water has to be seen to be believed. There is occasional seaweed but the tide soon clears it away. You feel you are on a private bay because apart from the odd fisherman you are alone.
I've got to be honest and say you do have noise from the Gaps nightlife but that's to be expected if you are living in the middle of it all.
The positives far out way the negatives, believe me. Go see for yourself
As a Barbadian national that returns frequently and have stayed in different parishes and various rental properties, Villa Jarrow blew me away. Starting with interaction with management regarding booking was easy and friendly and trustworthy. As beautiful as the pictures are of the villa, they don't do it justice at all. The property is absolutely breathe taking. The interior is gorgeous and extremely clean and the beach and surrounding is inviting and relaxing. The location was perfect with everything you could need within walking distance. This hidden treasure will always be my choice of stay when I am in Barbados!
My family and i stayed at Villa Jarrow for our honeymoon from Oct 18th to the 25th. We had an amazing stay at this Villa, we would defiantely recommend this beach house to anyone reading this comment. We loved it so much we will be returning next year for sure. You are right on the beach and the romantic sunsets that you get in the evening are breath taking. Go stay and have lots of fun.

Just wanted to say thank-you for the vacation of a lifetime! Honeymooners,stayed at your Villa Sept.2010 , the fishermen brought us fish almost daily, and we had the choice to stay in or eat out , we did both, within walking distance. We didn't need to rent a car, and took several tours of the Island....our little gem of a place was so romantic especially at Night...with the lights across the Bay! We swam day and night, and felt completely safe. The Villa was extremely clean and well maintained...we plan to come back every anniversary for the next 50 Years! Thanks again!
