Make a holiday rental home or self catering apartment in St Philip, Barbados your home away from home

St Philip (Saint Philip), is the south-eastern parish of Barbados in the Caribbean. Locally considered to be ‘the countryside’ of Barbados, due to its flat, cultivated plains, St Philip is the largest parish on the island, offering visitors a chance to get away from the tourist hoards.

Things to do on holiday in St Philip, Barbados

One of the most remarkable places to visit on a holiday in St Philip, Barbados, is the Sunbury Plantation, which has been fully restored to its original state, dating from 1660. Complete with Victorian antiques and horse drawn carriages, visiting the Sunbury Plantation gives you a haunting sense of what life was like in Barbados. The picturesque Ragged Point Lighthouse is well worth visiting from a self catering St Philip apartment or villa too. Sam Lord’s Castle is a dramatic sight, and visiting gives you a real since of the violent implications of the pirates which patrolled these waters.

The coastline is a delightful place to walk. Spectacular coastal views, stunning scenery and an array of exotic animals make walking the coastal paths an absolute delight, and it makes a great way to prepare for an evening of sampling the incredibly delicious local cuisine and ice cold rum punch which Barbados is famous for.

Of course, no stay in St Philip holiday rental would be complete without spending a large proportion of your time bathing on the glorious, powder soft beaches which appear on many travel guides to Barbados. St Philip has some beautiful, calm beaches to enjoy, the pick of which must be The Crane beach, which is quite hard to reach, but extremely worthwhile. Long Beach is also remarkably beautiful and slightly easier to find!

St Philip is not a great destination for young families hoping to bathe and swim. The strong waves which pound this tip of St Philip attract experienced surfers from all over the world to take a rental apartment in St Philip, as the surfing is certainly the best in Barbados, and not for the feint hearted.

Places to holiday in St Philip, Barbados

A St Philip apartment in Ocean City is one of the most romantic places to stay in Barbados. Set high on a cliff above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, there is almost nowhere where you can stay in such a stunning setting without hundreds of other people around you.

Bottom Bay is a beautiful beach in the south of St Philip with a wide, expansive beach where the waves roll powerfully onto the shore. The houses which line the top of the rocky shelf at the back of the beach are some of the best places to see turtles and whales in the waters below.

Travel to St Philip, Barbados

The Grantley Adams International Airport is the only one on the island, but nowhere is more than an hour and a half from the airport. British Airways provide cheap flights to Barbados from the UK, and you can be settling into your self catering St Philip apartment within 9 hours of leaving home! Although it seems a million miles away, a holiday in St Philip, Barbados is really quite easy to take!

                                                              We have been coming to Barbados for over 33 years and have always stayed in a villa. Mari Sol has the most perfect location you could ask for in Barbados. The view is outstanding, along with the cooling breeze of the east coast. The Villa has everything you need for your holiday: perfectly presented with 3 bedrooms which are all ensuite and air conditioning . With the Atlantic breeze we only ever needed to use the air conditioning in the bedroom to help us have a purfect sleep in the luxurious bedroom. Doors to the living area and master bedroom both open out to integrate the outdoors which enhances your experience. It does say a car is essential however a taxi to the supermarket is only $15 and to hire a taxi for the day to tour the island is only $200! If you want to take advantage of the sun and the villa then it is cheaper not to hire a car! We calculated the over 2 weeks we lost £300 hiring a car. We are booking for next year and would recommend this beautiful villa to anyone. We can't wait to return to paradise. Lynne and Walter Cumbria, UK

                                                              Truly beautiful property

                                                              Having stayed in Barbados before, this was by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. I have to stress the photo's do not do it justice. We did not want for anything as Suzie had covered all bases with everything from cool boxes, beach towels and a hairdryer (with a diffuser for all those curly haired ladies). There is plenty of storage for clothes and shoes and the villa is decorated to a high standard. The pool/ garden is so peaceful and pretty and there is a strong breeze to keep you from getting too warm, perfect for an evening playing cards and drinking Banks beer. The Villa managers were so friendly and helpful, sharing lots of information and tips about the island. We even took advantage of the chef service and had local cuisine cooked for us and then brought to the villa. Very reasonable and delicious food. For those looking to see more of Barbados, Bottom Bay is the perfect location. A car is definately required but no where is too far and you have the pleasure of seeing the 'real' island as you drive around. We would definately stay at the villa again, it halped make our stay truly memorable and my parting words...that view....
