Make a holiday villa in Barbados your home away from home

HomeAway can help you track down a holiday apartment in Barbados to make your tropical getaway complete. Barbados is the archetypal island paradise, with lush greenery, gorgeous sandy beaches and great choices for trips and recreation. You can browse the variety of holiday homes, apartments and villas, and specify the location and environment that will suit you best. Set in a luxury destination, Barbados villas offer an elegance and scale to match, with many rentals offering exquisite sea views. You can also identify your perfect villa in Barbados by defining guest facilities such as pools, air-conditioning, internet access, barbecues, gardens or practical considerations like parking and washing machines.

Things to do from your villa in Barbados

-Beaches. There are 60 beaches on the island, every one of which can be accessed by the public. Crane Beach towards the southeast of the island is consistently ranked as one of the best beaches in the world. The west coast of Barbados is also spectacular, with lovely sandy beaches at Gibbes Beach and Paynes Bay.

-Diving. The high visibility and comfortable temperatures of the waters surrounding the island make Barbados an excellent destination for underwater activities. There’s abundant and colourful marine life and coral to admire, as well as wrecks to explore, with numerous dive shops and sites to be found in St Michael, St Peter, St James an Christchurch on the west coast.

-Boating. The west coast is also the point of departure for all kinds of boat trips. You can learn to sail at Carlisle Bay with the help of the Barbados Sailing Association. If you’d like to take a back seat then there are a number of businesses offering unforgettable catamaran cruises in St James and St Michael.

-Nature walks. The interior of Barbados is best discovered on foot, with a choice of walking routes available. On the Arbib Nature and Heritage Trail you can take a guided walk, getting special in-depth information about the area’s history and nature. Cherry Tree Hill is another excellent spot for a walk with fabulous vistas over the Scotland District.

-Bridgetown. You’ll be able to learn about Barbados’ interesting and tumultuous history at the Barbados Museum, which is set within Bridgetown’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, protecting the historic garrison. You can also take a tour at the Mount Gat Rum Distillery, to see how this typically Barbadian drink is brewed from sugarcane.

Weather in Barbados

Barbados holiday apartments are set on a tropical island, which results in year-round warm or hot weather, with very little fluctuation in average temperatures across the year. For every month of the year you can expect either eight or nine hours of sunshine a day. There’s a distinct difference between the weather from December to May, which is usually drier and a little cooler, and conditions from June to November, which tend to be wetter and hotter, with September, October and November being the dampest months of the year.

Travel to Barbados

Barbados has one airport – Sir Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI), which has connections to North America, South America, a number of other Caribbean islands and various airports in Europe. There’s a good road system on the island, and hire cars are perhaps the best way to get around during your holiday on Barbados - with highways converging on Bridgetown, the capital in the southwest. The public bus system is affordable and useful, and there are also ZRs, private mini-vans, which are similar to taxi-cabs.

Excellent

5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying here. The location is excellent and very private, with the house overlooking a green treed vally (fantastic views down to the coast!). Would definetly recommended hiring a car for the stay though, as it is remote. The house itself is bright, spacious and airy. With a big communal living room and outdoor seating. The pool is shared with the other house, also owned by Brian, but the houses are quite private from eachother. All in all it was a great, relaxing holiday and would 100% recommend, especially for the great views and remote location.

Lovely Villa, clean and comfortable, well equiped with the added bonus of the large pool.

4 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Golden Palm Villa. A lovely, relaxing retreat away from the busy tourist areas but easily within 10 to 20 minutes drive of all the major attractions on the island. The Villa has the added advantage of a welcoming pool; a great place to escape the heat. A car is essential.
