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.

The property was more than amply sized for the 3 adults and 2 (very active) children, and amazingly stocked with all we needed, and much more (we used the great BBQ most evenings). The views were stunning, and the sunsets from the decking were absolutely amazing each evening. We loved the bats each evening as they came out; they flew so close if you stood in the right place, that you could hear and feel their wing beats! My daughter was amazed! Monkeys played within sight and cane toads frequently crossed the patio area once the sun went down. House geckos and lizards were by the dozen, and we even had a few barbados leaf toed - thought to be extinct there until 3 years ago! You feel like you have escaped to your own private tree house, indeed many of our friends born and raised on the island were oblivious to the existence of the property. This is something of a rarity on an island so small and well traversed. Gillian, the owner, is lovely and completely accessible for any query- I am no good with technology and could not work Netflix- all resolved within a couple of hours. Unfortunately one of the air con units was on the blink and stopped the day after we arrived, we expected an uncomfortable night, but that afternoon it was serviced and repaired with a new circuit board, all with minimal fuss and intrusion to the holiday- an absolutely top class response and better than many previously from other rentals. Cannot fault any response from Gillian over the course of the holiday, or the property itself, it's a great place to go, already planning the return!

As soon as we stepped inside we knew we'd found the perfect place for our holiday. Sarah meet us, went over everything we needed to know and was amazing to have at the end of a phone should we need her. The rooms are spacious and there is ample space for everyone (we were a group of 8)....kids loved the pool (and watching the monkeys from their lilos) & my other half took advantage of the gym equipment. The supermarket, garage and beach are than 5 mins walk away and buses are frequent. If you want to explore the island there are taxi numbers at the house....Terry was great for a trip to Harrison caves, but we did agree we'd get a car next time we stay.....😁. We will be back....although one ask for our next trip is a larger fan or some AC in the living room...please. Thanks for having us, we can't wait to rebook soon. Sian x
