St Phillip - Sand, sea and Sunburst

Hello, I’m Suzie. Welcome to my personal travel guide to the beautiful island of Barbados.

After years of reading travel guides to various prospective destinations around the globe, Holiday-Rentals.co.uk have provided me with the opportunity to write my own!

I feel the first thing I should say is that after travelling to many countries both East and West it surely speaks volumes that Barbados should be the place our family chose to become our second home.

The choice for us was quite simple. The year round 30 degree climate was very appealing, becoming ever more so in view of the good old ‘British summer’! The island has many breathtaking beaches, (the best of which, in my humble opinion, is minutes away from our home) and the restaurants are plentiful, varied and excellent, so for us, our holiday check list was fairly near complete.

Bottom Bay is situated on the south east coast of the island in the parish of St Philip and as we were asked to write about our local area the first thing that comes to mind is that as yet, that particular part of the coast is quiet and not developed and generally speaking, all the local residents would like to keep it that way. It’s very peaceful and not at all crowded. However, a 5 minute car ride will take you to the supermarket, bank and post office.

As the island is only 26 miles long by 14 miles wide so I feel justified in talking about the whole island. Indeed another reason why I feel Barbados is such a good destination is that it can feel like several holidays in one if you wish to get out and about around the island. From the north to the south and east to the west the coast lines are all incredibly different and all equally beautiful in different ways. The west coat has flat calm sea, however, head to the east and you will find people surfing on the Atlantic rollers.

If you need more from a holiday destination than just sand and sea, Barbados has a lot to offer.

Whatever month of the year you choose to visit there will always be plenty to do ranging from visiting various cultural and music festivals, to viewing the National Trust Open Houses. Sport fans have the choice of watching horse racing, polo, golf and of course cricket. There are organised walks at various destinations around the island and nature lovers can visit natural wonders such as Welchman Hall Gully and the Animal Flower Cave.

I could probably wax lyrical about Barbados and what it has to offer for many hours as I have not yet mentioned the friendliness of the people you will meet there or their history which can be explored as can their arts and crafts.

The best advice I could give you is to visit the island and see for yourself, oh, and incidentally I know somewhere really nice to stay too!

Enjoy!

                            Hi myself and my husband stayed in Diana's villa for 4 weeks and we had a fantastic time. A beautiful villa in beautiful surroundings with trade winds blowing to keep you cool. Diana was an excellent host and was always on hand should you need her. The villa is spacious and has everything you need and having a pool is a bonus, And with walking distance to the bus stop and beautiful Bottom Bay on your doorstep it really is Paradise. So a Big Thank you Diana and your lovely dog Duke we had a GREAT time and will be back luv the bus travellers Gary n Tina xx

                            Best Barbados Vacation !!!

                            We were a group of 4 friends staying at the pool house for 6 nights. We all enjoyed how efficient Lorraine was with the booking. The managing team of the house was amazing as well. The location is perfect. Bottom bay is an amazing area and the beach was incredible. The house is spacious and the pool was great. Make sure to ask for a BBQ to enjoy the patio at night. We will definitely return.

                            Truly beautiful property

                            5 of 5
                            Having stayed in Barbados before, this was by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. I have to stress the photo's do not do it justice. We did not want for anything as Suzie had covered all bases with everything from cool boxes, beach towels and a hairdryer (with a diffuser for all those curly haired ladies). There is plenty of storage for clothes and shoes and the villa is decorated to a high standard. The pool/ garden is so peaceful and pretty and there is a strong breeze to keep you from getting too warm, perfect for an evening playing cards and drinking Banks beer. The Villa managers were so friendly and helpful, sharing lots of information and tips about the island. We even took advantage of the chef service and had local cuisine cooked for us and then brought to the villa. Very reasonable and delicious food. For those looking to see more of Barbados, Bottom Bay is the perfect location. A car is definately required but no where is too far and you have the pleasure of seeing the 'real' island as you drive around. We would definately stay at the villa again, it halped make our stay truly memorable and my parting words...that view....
