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!

All the previous glowing comments are totally justified. Lovely welcome from Jan on arrival and the house was perfect and all ready for us. No issues at all during our 2 week stay. The house is very spacious and with 6 of us that was great, so everyone could find their own space if they wanted. The house is very tastefully decorated to a high standard. Suzie has been the most helpful owner I've ever come across. Nothing was too much trouble and always replied promptly to any queries. I can't praise her enough! We had a wonderful stay and have some fantastic memories particularly as we got married whilst we were there at the amazing Bottom Bay beach! We generally never return to somewhere we've been before but I can honestly say that we will definately return to 'Sunburst' again someday (assuming Suzie continues to rent!). Thanks again Suzie and Jan for making our stay so memorable.

It was my first visit to Barbados and I really didn’t know what to expect. Everything was top secret, even down to the flight, when we landed and got a car, I expected us to drive to a hotel but instead we arrived at this beautiful Barbados home. I say home and not house because it felt like home the minute we walked in. We met with Jan, who gave us a tour and I could remember thinking how much Dawlish Cottage exceeded my expectations. The house was so spacious and provided so many activities for my family and I to do while on our trip. We initially planned for a larger group to be there and when we told the homeowner she didn’t mind at all, instead she showed us where we could turn sofas into beds if we needed. The bedrooms were air-conditioned, spacious and clean; the pictures of this place are exactly what you get. The entire place looked like something taken right out of a home magazine. Everything was well maintained and the backyard is divine; even though the beach isn’t recommended for bathing due to the strong currents just being able to sit and witness all that natural beauty and hear the waves crashing was enough. Although we did a lot of outside activities, I think if we just stayed at home the entire trip I would have been more than happy. Everyone we met in the surrounding area was so pleasant and helpful; there was even a nearby supermarket and Chefettes. Everything worked well and my family and I have no complaints. I am truly grateful that my first ever Barbados experience was at this home and I would recommend it to anyone who is currently looking at taking a trip to Barbados. I promise you won’t regret it! As a matter of fact, this is the place I would like to stay when I visit again! I had the best birthday ever! :D Thank you so much for the excellent and friendly service, it made our stay so much better! -Written by the birthday girl.
