Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Long Bay, Barbados Your Home Away From Home

 

Nestled on the south-eastern coastline of the island of Barbados is the peaceful town of Long Bay. Sitting within the boundaries of the St. Philip parish on the island, Long Bay is a hidden gem for travellers. It is tranquil and peaceful but is still within close proximity to the sights and sounds that Barbados has to offer. Renting a villa in Long Bay will mean an undisturbed and luxurious holiday. You can come and go as you please without feeling as though you are in an area of mass tourism.

Things to Do on Holiday to Long Bay, Barbados

The first place to visit once you have rented your Long Bay villa is the beach. With a 500 metre strip of white, sandy beach and radiantly blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Long Bay Beach is perfect for those looking for sun and watersports. Activities available at the beach include swimming, diving, sailing, fishing, surfing, water skiing and jet skiing. Other vigorous activities that are available within the immediate area of Long Bay include horse riding, tennis, golf, paragliding and cycling.

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.

Weather in Long Bay, Barbados

Visitors to Long Bay will not be disappointed in terms of the weather.

Due to its location the island is less likely to be at risk of hurricanes and tropical storms too.

Absolutely glorious!!!

5 of 5
The Villa was very special. Everything you could have needed was provided. The furnishings inside and out were gorgeous. Floyd, Jackie, Natalie and Gordon, the villa staff looked after us like family. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made our stay all the more special. We hope to return to Barbados in the future and couldn't imagine a better home to return to. We have no hesitation in recommending Gibbs Glade Villa as a superb holiday home.

Holiday May 2017

4 of 5
Good location, positioned one road back from highway one, behind the Sun Crest medical centre.(state this to your taxi driver). Very well appointed , with everything you need for cooking, sleeping and being outdoors.Plunge pool, loungers and barbacue are perfect for a chill out day. AC keeps you cool and refreshed. Close to beach, restaurants, bars and shops. Taxis and buses are close by too. We all enjoyed our stay and had a very relaxing holiday.
