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!

Being on the edge of a cliff, the house gives one the impression of being on a gigantic boat in the middle of the ocean. (We got concerned, however, when we identified a big cave on the rocks underneath the house. How long will the house be sustained as such? Are there any risks of landslides?). Putting this aside, we could enjoy the sunrise by the balcony and all the morning and early afternoon sun - something ideal as the afternoon sun can get really warm! We didn’t have to use the ACs as there’s some breeze at night. The den, where there’s a third double bed, smells of mold a bit, and wasn’t cleaned properly before our arrival. The house does have general appliances and everything works, but in a very spartan way (don’t expect any resemblance of luxury!). The couch and sheets are of rather cheap fabric and might be itchy to more sensitive skins. The host is very friendly and willing to accommodate requests. The house is good value for money, in the end.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The setting is so peaceful and both roof terraces are fantastic areas to spend a quiet night in and star gaze. The pool area is spacous with plenty of shade should you need to escape the sun's rays. The interior of the villa is decorated and maintained to a high standard with a kitchen that has everything you could possibly wish for and need. Melba is an amazing host and greets you with a tasty rum punch upon arrival. We didn't see much of Melba during our stay which I suppose is as it should be as it meant we did not encounter any problems for which we needed assistance with. However we knew she was just a phone call away should any problems have arisen. I would say car hire is a must if you want to get around and explore the many beaches and attractions Barbados has to offer. Being on the east coast your closest beaches are the east coast beaches - Crane beach, Bottom Bay, Foul Bay, then Batsheba in the opposite direction. I loved everything about the villa and I cannot think of anything negative to say at all. A very memorable place for all the right reasons. Thank you Melba!
