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.

Great cottage, right on the west coast beach in Barbados

5 of 5
Spacious and well equipped - looked exactly as it does in the pictures. Moss and his excellent support team went 'above and beyond' to make sure we had everything we needed. Thanks - would certainly recommend Turtle Cottage to others

Stylish, clean, minimalist and great location

5 of 5
We stayed for three weeks in August /September and had a wonderful time. Property was clean and tidy with minimalist theme which encourages relaxation. Outside is an ideal sized swimming pool which is cleaned weekly, gardens maintained fortnightly and all enclosed with security gates for peace of mind. The estate the property is on is a highly sought-after area in St George so all clean, tidy and pleasant neighbours. As others have mentioned the noise made by the neighbours dogs is, really, the only gripe. The house is equipped with full kitchenware and domestic tools to help you stay comfortable in this, your home from home. We were thoroughly pleased with our choice of accommodation for this holiday and will consider for future trips. We would also recommend for others with a family intending to stay in Barbados. For us we had four adults and a toddler and we all loved it. Thank you to the owners and the property maintenance team for this property. Xxx
