About the property

Villa, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

'Sunshine Paradise' is a two-story Residence with a beautiful upper Studio and a big breezy Patio where you can cook and enjoy your meals overlooking the caribbean Sea, the harbour and the golden-white Sand of Malibu Beach, one of the finest beaches on the West-Coast. You can also sit outside at the bar sipping a drink while admiring the stunning sunsets or lying in the hammock and listen to the sound of the waves.

The studio is one big livingroom-bedroom with a big double closet and a second room with a door and a double drapery.

The Master bedroom in the studio has a king-size four-poster bed and air-conditioning and a ceiling fan.

The smaller room has a single bed and a bed-sofa

The kitchen is outside on the patio always breezy and nice.

If you go some steps higher up from the Patio to the platform on the roof you can have a private sunbath or sit and watch out for sailing boats and the cruise-liners to pass by. From the patio you can also step down the circle staircase to the pool(with jacuzzi) and of course to the beach!

It takes only five to ten minutes to reach the town for shopping, entertainment and dining in the west-coast restaurants.

The owner(retired german dentist) is a member of the Golf Assoziation and can help you with a Tee-off time at the Sandy Lane Golf course.

The studio offers full amenities including maid service weekly and is specially suited for honeymooners and families with and without children.

Excellent choice.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sunshine Paradise was everything we hoped for and more. The upstairs studio is very roomy, clean and comfortable. Cooking a proper breakfast outside with a view of the blue Caribbean waters was a joy and so was kicking back in the hammock while sipping on a drink. The location was great. It is a quiet neighborhood but not too far from the action. Having a car is a plus but not a must. Taxis are reasonable and public buses are a good option as well. There are a couple of local beach restaurants plus a supermarket up the hill within walking distance. Our host Gertrud is lovely, accommodating and knowledgeable. Go explore the many attractions of Barbados but come back home to Sunshine Paradise to see the sun set over the gentle west coast waves. Highly recommended.

Super Spot to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this wonderful apartment owned by Gertrud who lives downstairs. The apartment is great for a couple (with or without kids). Our favorite part is the huge deck that overlooks the ocean. It never occurred to us what a great thing it is to have an outdoor kitchen but it meant that we could be outside with the view and weather while making breakfast or dinner. We spent most of our time on this deck. We also really enjoyed walking down the beach and swimming right outside the gate. Very peaceful.

Gertrud is a wonderful host and has lived on the island a long time. She is full of information about things to do and how things work - thanks Gertrud!

As others have said a car is really useful and allows you to get around. We drove into Bridgetown for bbq chicken (twice as it was so good) as well as going out twice and cooking at the apartment.

We would go again in a heartbeat!

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4, (2 adults and 2 children), just returned from our 12 day vacation to Barbados. The accommodation was simply perfect! The location is ideal as a basecamp for day trips around the island or just to stay and relax on the wonderful beach. Bridgetown is only a 5-10 minute drive, and Holetown is about 15 minutes. A grocery store is within walking distance if you prefer to just stay at the villa. The owner - Gertrud - is a wonderful lady who made our stay all the more enjoyable by providing very useful information about everything from where to buy groceries to which sites to visit. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, including families with young children. The property is very clean with plenty of amenities including a covered outdoor kitchen which is fantastic. It is also located in a safe area that is quiet (i.e., away from the bustle of more touristy areas). I would recommend renting a car if you want to frequent restaurants and/or see the many interesting sites of the island.

Perfect Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

What a joy to leave a blizzard in the US to arrive at "Sunshine Paradise." The accommodations were perfect and exactly what we were looking for - quiet, peaceful, relaxing. The studio apartment was very roomy and comfortable, especially the king size bed. The large outdoor kitchen and balcony were the perfect location for enjoying the view of the Sea in the morning and the quiet breeze in the evening. Just a short walk for groceries so we could enjoy many of our meals right from our own kitchen. The owner was so helpful in providing us directions on how to get around to some of the best locations on the island. Transportation on the local buses was very convenient to get to all coasts and certainly gave you a flavor of the local culture. Each coast offering a different island personality.The restaurants on the island were excellent, great food and service while taking advantage of the beautiful oceanfront views. We would definitely recommend this location. It provides you with quiet solitude, but also the opportunity to travel to other areas for more action and entertainment. We would also recommend the daily catamaran tours with Silver Moon and Tiami. They provided a great tour along the West Coast and an opportunity to snorkel with the turtles. Also, a short walk up the beach to Weiser's Beach Bar. Good food and drinks.

Fantastic honeymoon in a wonderfull location!! :-)

  • 5 of 5

We had a unforgettable stay at Sunshine Paradise. Every morning and evening we enjoyed the wonderfull view over the garden and the beach at the Veranda. We also enjoyed cooking at the outdoor kitchen. For Relaxing we did long walks on the beach or took the Kajak. Gertrud, the owner is the best and most helpful host! Thanks a lot for all your hospitality! Sunshine Paradise is perfect located for all activitys around the Island. We took a bus to see the wonderfull places. Even the bus tour was really funny. The Mount gay rum distillary, where we did a leadership tour, is worth seeing and only 10 minutes to walk. We hope to come back again soon ...

Lovely place, well designed

  • 4 of 5

The place rivals top hotels in its design, decor, location and views. Very nice to take in the wonderful view while cooking in your outdoor kitchen and dining outside. Directly on the beach. If you wish to explore the island, you need to make friends, hire taxis or rent a car as the location is a bit isolated (not necessarily a negative if you wish to get away from it all). Truly stunning apartment.
