Places to Visit on Holiday to Long Bay, Barbados

If you can tear yourself away from your gorgeous rental villa and the beach at Long Bay, it is worth taking the short walk east to Sam Lord’s Castle. Now a hotel, this beautiful Georgian mansion sits right on the shoreline of a wonderful unspoilt beach. The mansion was built in the year 1820 by the notorious buccaneer, Sam Hall Lord. The building was apparently built with ill-gotten funds from plundering ships that ran aground on the land after following lanterns that were hung on coconut trees around the mansion.

Located in the heart of the St. Philip countryside is the only Great House that you will find on the island of Barbados, namely Sunbury Plantation House. It was built in 1660 by one of the first settlers on the island, Matthew Chapman. Visiting Sunbury Plantation House is a wonderful experience due to the fact that all of the rooms are open to the viewing public. Here you will see antique furniture, lavish Victorian decoration and a unique collection of horse-drawn carriages. There are also wonderful gardens to be explored around the house.

We spent most of our time outside in the beautiful garden and private pool. The house is about 5mins walk from the very quiet and beautiful Gibbs beach and about 10mins walk from Mullins beach. Monkeys visited the garden a couple of times when we were there which delighted everyone. The service from booking the villa through Maria, to the wonderful staff was first class throughout. Highly recommended. We hope to stay again in future.

I have stayed in various locations, at Hotels, Apartments and Cottages. I never seemed to get both just right at the same time, until now. For the past 7 days I have stayed at Little Reef. A fantastic apartment in the most idyllic location. It was my home for a week, and I loved every minute of it. Only wish I could have stayed longer. The apartment had everything I needed, and more. Travelling alone, I could sit on the balcony in the evening, feeling extremely safe. Then I was able to move into a lovely cosy sitting room with comfy chairs, I often fell asleep in. The view from the balcony. There are no words to do it justice. Absolutely brilliant and amazing. Grantley and Shirley looked after me extremely well. As well as Sally, from the moment I booked the apartment. Everything in a personal manner, which I appreciated very much. I very much hope, I can come back to Little Reef in the foreseeable future.
