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!

Fantastic place with good-hearted owners

5 of 5
It was my astrophotography holiday following the footsteps of famous Damian Peach. I was positively surprised by Louise and Eric's hospitality. They have done their utmost effort to make my stay wonderful and relaxing holiday. They have taken me around the island and showed all its marvels. They have helped me with getting a good deal on a rental car. Large comfy apartment and the swimming pool are suitable for a family holiday. Location of property is away from the crowded places but still close enough to empty beach (5 minutes walk). Another worth noting point is the presence of many different birds, crabs, monkeys and sheep – all beautiful and interesting. You and your kids will love that. Birds are nesting in the plants on property so you can see chicks. Crabs were visiting me while I was out with my telescope. And monkeys are living in close by trees. When it comes to astrophotography - there is no better place for planetary seeing conditions. I have taken some jaw dropping pictures of Saturn and Jupiter here. 20 out of 21 nights I had conditions for imaging with quality seeing far exceeding that what I had at home in Europe. I will use Damian Peach’s words to describe my general impression of this stay: “Barbados I love you!” I will definitely come back here.

A dream come true

5 of 5
We have just returned from our 8 th trip to Batbados but our first at the Crane Resort and we will defiantly be back to this resort and this apt. This apt was by far the best stocked of any that I have stayed in. Anything you looked for ,they had it in the apt. The apt was beautifully maintained and the staff was awesome . It was wonderful having kitchen and the bed was so comfy. Sometimes it's the small things that you appreciated like the great water pressure and lots of hot water in the shower !! The rooftop was amazing and the deck and deck chairs so comfortable. John was awesome to deal with and made everything so easy.. The Crane resort itself was great. Everyone was so friendly ,from check in to check out .....we felt right at home. We will be back for sure and we will be booking this apt... Thanks John and the Crane for a wonderful trip.
