Make a holiday rental house or villa in Speightstown, Barbados your home away from home

Speightstown is a charming town in the St Peter parish of Barbados. The original port in Barbados, Speightstown soon became a major commercial centre, and after many years of neglect, Speightstown has recently reaped the rewards of a huge investment in the new luxury marina, Port St Charles. As a result of the luxury marina, Speightstown is now a beautiful, thriving town with an unbelievably friendly atmosphere and many attractions worth investigating.

Places to visit on holiday in Speightstown, Barbados

It wouldn’t be much of a guide to Speightstown without a mention of the closest beaches to the town. After breakfast, it is only a gentle wander to the beach from any holiday rental property in Speightstown. Speightstown Beach is a beautifully flat, soft beach, with fine white sand stretching into the distance, interrupted only by a smattering of palm trees which grow in clumps along the sand. Sitting in their shade in a hammock is a completely unrivalled experience, and one you shall remember with jealousy when you arrive home!

Weather in Speightstown, Barbados

It doesn’t matter whether you are hoping to escape the winter blues or just take the ultimate in summer holidays, there is very little difference between summer and winter temperatures, averaging around 30°C all year round. Rain is most likely in July, but even then, you would be unlucky to get a poor week.

Travel to Speightstown, Barbados

The villa is only a short walk from some amazing beaches and Speightstown. The monkeys that made their daily journey across the back of the villa were amazing and even took a banana from my hand, not that I'd recommend trying that. The owner of the villa, Claire, was super quick to respond to emails, very friendly and basically a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this villa!

The apartment is clean, tidy and very impressive with extraordinary views out to the sea and the beautifully kept gardens and swimming pool. There were only two small comments we would make. When you are spending that amount of money I would have expected tea, coffee and basic food to be complimentary. There was a note requesting us to replace anything we had used which, when you are staying one night is a bit much we felt! Also even though we enjoyed our stay very much we did not feel 100% comfortable. I think this was due mainly to the copious notes left on 'dos and don'ts' which we understand had to be there up to a reason but we felt we had to watch ourselves. Having said this we would not hesitate in recommending the apartment and its location.
