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.

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.

Everything I expected - a wonderful location

5 of 5
The apartment was everything I had hoped for, location right on the beach with the sound of the surf 24/7. The apartment had everything we needed for a full self catering vacation. 2 wonderful beach bars close by on either side; Crystal Waters and Tiki's, plus many other restaurants within easy walking distance. James was very helpful and friendly and met us on arrival from the airport. Could not have wished for more from our stay. Thanks Jimmy, we will be returning soon.
