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

A holiday rental in Speightstown is not far from the Barbados International Airport (BGI). Within 8 hours of leaving the UK, you could be sunning yourself on the fine sands of the Caribbean, with a chilled cocktail in hand and the sound of warm waters gently lapping the shore. If that is a dream worth investigating, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic may be able to help!

Lovely villa, great location, easy holiday

5 of 5
This is the second time I've stayed in John and Janice's villa (see April review). I stayed with my mum, son and nephew, we didn't hire a car this time but as the villa is so conveniently located we were able to easily get around the island. Heywoods beach is a leisurely 10 minute walk, petrol station and Chefette (West Indian fast food chain) 10 minutes and Jordans supermarket 15 minutes. The kids loved the pool and the a/c in the bedrooms is a godsend! Thank you for another lovely holiday

Absolutely amazing place

5 of 5
If you love snorkelling you must stay here, the quiet beach is on the doorstep and has the most amazing reef just a few metres out. (We've been to Barbados a few times and have never seen a reef like that within such easy reach!) speightstown is our favourite area on the island, quiet and peaceful with many traditional buildings, lovely beach and just enough nightlife in a few beach bars to keep you entertained. The Fishermans Pub is brilliant, very reasonably priced and the owners are a good laugh! The apartment is lovely and was a real home from home. Sonja was there to meet us when we arrived. The facilities are top class, we enjoyed cooking our own meals there with local produce, and there are plenty of nice bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. The terrace is stunning, very big with views straight onto the beach. Beach loungers, umbrella and some towels were all provided for us in the apartment which is excellent because the beaches out the front are very quiet. The apartment has everything - air con, comfy lounge, good cooker, ice maker, dishwasher, lovely big & hot shower , comfortable bed. There is wifi and you can even get Netflix on the TV which was fab ;) Sonja came in to clean for us half way through the week which was great. If you are looking for a peaceful and comfortable holiday in Barbados we would 100% recommend you to stay here. Not one bad thing to say!! We were very sad to leave and will definitely come back soon !
