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.

We were a large family group and chose to eat in most evenings (with the help of a lovely catering lady). The kitchen was very well equipped and leads on to a lovely veranda area with a large table where we had our meals. The garden was lovely and much fun was had in the pool - there was a wide variety of garden tables and chairs/loungers and a great BBQ. Sunset drinks on the lawn are highly recommended. The villa really spacious and was perfect for us and we can't wait to return.

Both Michael and Julie were absolutely fantastic in answering my numerous questions (of which there were many!!). The villa itself had absolutely everything you could wish for. The main bedroom was just beautiful. If you book this property you will not be disappointed. Also the location was fantastic - we went around most of the island and this is definitely where you'd want to stay. The beach club was also a great bonus. Great memories x
