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!

It will not disappoint with its truly spectacular views and proximity to the ocean. Highly recommended!! We spent 19 days there over the festive season. The villa is new, clean and bright. It is decorated beautifully and fully equipped with all amenities. In addition a housekeeper came every week to change the bedding and do general cleaning. The highlight though is its situation and the indescribably beautiful views. The whole front of the house opens to the sea, so even when you are indoors you feel like you are outside. Sitting on the upstairs balcony early in the morning and late in the afternoon is heavenly. The area is residential, so mostly quiet. Being the festive season there was some activity in the surrounding homes, but nothing that was noisy or intrusive. It is preferable to have a car if you want to get around, although the bus stop is within walking distance if you prefer. Some reviews have commented on the noise from departing aeroplanes. For our aviation-mad family this was actually a big plus, and one reason to chose this particular property! My husband and son had flight-radar 24 apps on their devices and spent as much time as possible spotting planes. I would stress that there was no actual disturbance to us. The numbers of flights are few and concentrated at particular times of the day. Phillip was extremely helpful throughout the booking process, answering questions in advance of our stay, and even calling the villa while we were there to check that we were settling in ok. He asked his property manager David to pick us up from the airport. Given that we were very tired after 2 days of travelling it was a most welcome gesture. He offered to stop by the grocery store for supplies as well. David was always available for small issues such as light bulbs that needed changing, and he arranged for someone to fix the freezer when it stopped working. He also came intermittently to check and clean the pool during our stay. We had a fantastic few weeks, felt completely relaxed and rejuvenated by the end, so much so that we are looking for our own piece of paradise just along the road! My only small suggestion would be that the lovely pool perhaps may need heated in winter. It was manageable for a quick swim but it was not warm enough to be lazing around in the water. The constant sea breezes that are usually so welcome may be just a bit too effective cooling the water!

A Fantastic large roomy house with lots of features typical of barbados and its colonial stylings. The Pool is perfect, The big kitchen area allows everyone to join in and cook a supper when your staying in. Lying in bed early morning with the big doors swung open from the master bedroom was a daily treat beautiful view - blue sky, blue sea, lovely blue pool & swaying palm tree's. It is obvious Seamoss is a very loved house by its owners so as such it is like being home from home. Tamara from the House Management Team welcomed us and is on hand should you need to be in contact during your stay. There is so much to see and do we spent lots of time surfing one of our passions at Zed's Adventures & Barry's Surf Co's. Thank you Sew & Tamara - looking forward to staying again. with best wishes Mark & Vicki Wilson

                                                                                                      Diana's Villa is beautiful - lovely location right by Bottom Bay Beach - one of the best beaches.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I had an amazing time at Diana's Villa - the apartment is very clean and has all the amenities that is required to have a fantastic stay. The bedroom is lovely as windows on both sides so you get the wind blowing through, I didn't use the Air Conditioning for the whole time I was there. The kitchenette is well equipped and I cooked virtual every evening. The swimming pool was brilliant and where I spent most of my time as I went for a relaxing time. However if you wish to explore the Island there is a bus stop at the top of the road, which will get you to the main parts of the Island, they are regular and a great way to explore. Or you can hire a Car. I felt completely at home on my stay and an added bonus was Duke the dog, he was an amazing companion, looked after me and made sure I was safe. I went on walks with Diana and Duke everyday and evening and the area has stunning views. I booked the apartment for a chilled 19 days and I can't fault Diana on her hospitality. Everyone has a different type of holiday in mind so that others know Diana is well informed about the Island and is there for you if you require any information. I have been to the Island a few times so used the apartment as a base to visit other friends. I would not hesitate in recommending SEA BREEZE. So thank you Diana & Duke for the most relaxing time and I looked forward to visiting you again very soon.
