About Karen Whittaker

I am the property manager for Blue Moon. We love welcoming guests and want them to experience the very best of Barbados. We are more than happy to share our local knowledge and experience so please feel free to ask any questions.

We want our guests to feel right at home straight way and to get the very most out of their holiday. Come and enjoy all that Barbados has to offer in your very own ‘home from home’ in Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted to take a moment to tell you what a great experience we had with the house and the staff and management. We have stayed at many vacation villas from Europe to the Caribbean and central America. By far Blue Moon was the best service and certainly one of the best outfitted vacation rentals we have had in our travels.

We loved Barbados also and do plan to return as there is much more to see and do that we didn't get to do in a week. Please pass along our comments to Dr Bucknall - we could not have asked for a better vacation experience!

We were impressed and that type of praise is not given often from us!

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic time !! The location could not be better as we had the best of all worlds with the private pool , membership to the Beach Bar across the road and a lovely stroll into Holetown. It was also great fun getting the bus to different places and the bus stop being right at the foot of the drive was an extra bonus. The villa is tremendous and I would recommend if to anybody

Meets all your needs - perfect

  • 5 of 5

We went as a couple to this apartment. The greeting and transfer were faultless as were the departure arrangements.

The apartment offers spacious accommodation for 4 couples. Well equipped kitchen with plenty of fridge space and large sitting room + dining table.

Good Wi Fi connection with on line TV. The air conditioning is very effective supplemented by fans for those who like a breeze. 20 minute walk to Holetown or local bus service ( a mild white knuckle ride). Tennis courts for hire in centre of Bridgetown. Good choice of dining in Holetown for example Tides, Beachhouse and Nishis or within walking distance of the apartment the Lone Star or SeaCat (bit more local). Access to the Royal Pavilion beach area across the road is ideal, much less their rum punch which we considered the best after considerable sampling research. A car is essential if you want to tour the whole island but most major towns can be reached by bus which is no slower than by car. Local drivers were courteous.

Take an unlocked phone(s) and use the local mobile service "Flow" which was reliable and cheap.

Of the gardens, Hunte's was the best and of the houses we visited St Nicholas's Abbey.

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this beautiful villa in Barbados. Blue Moon is one of six private residences situated on a private road which is gated and secluded. It is moments away from some of the best beaches on the island and is such a relaxing property.

The villa is furnished with taste and has every convenience that one would hope for from oven, gas barbecue, superbly comfortable beds and much more. It has a home cinema with access to films and the furnishings are luxurious but comfortable too.The housekeeper also comes every other day during the week to keep the place clean and sparkling.

The villa is situated in beautiful surroundings just north of Holetown on the West Coast. You have easy access to what ever takes your fancy. Whether it's simply relaxing on the veranda or going further afield to explore.

Thanks once again for a lovely holiday, I am sure we will be back!

Beautiful villa - great location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house and really didn't want to leave!

Beautifully furnished, with lovely comfortable sofas and beds, my husband, my 2 children and myself had a wonderful 2 week stay at Blue Moon. The beach (Alleyne''s Bay) is literally a 5 minute walk away, and although we explored other beaches, 'our' beach was our favourite: not too busy, great for safe swimming and snorkelling (we saw turtles!) and 2 fantastic beach bar / restaurants: www.ramshacklebarbados.com (casual) and www.thelonestar.com (smarter). The house itself has 2 lovely outdoor lounging areas - one with superb plunge pool, loungers and BBQ (there is a beachside fresh fish stall a short drive up the road - perfect for the BBQ), the other out front with comfy chairs and dining table where we breakfasted with humminbirds!

The owners had thought of everything - both comfort and facility wise, and the agency and maid service looked after our every need.

I would definitely recommend this property, in its quiet gated cul de sac, so close to the sea.

Superb villa with all amenities

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from paradise – Barbados is a wonderful place to go to on holiday. To also stay at the private villa named Blue Moon , makes it an unforgettable experience! It is the most perfect place to stay and relax. We travel the world and stayed in Blue Moon 2 years ago. We so love this villa that this year we have arranged our holiday around its availability. It is superbly furnished and has every amenity, including a friendly housekeeper who comes in everyday, except Sunday, to allow you to just get on enjoying your holiday.

The villa is located in a superb location, in a small, quiet, pretty 6-villa gated community, just about 1.5 km north of Holetown, on the West Coast with all its good restaurants, beaches and facilities. It has 4 distinctively different bedrooms, 3 are en suite, with large comfortable beds. The decor throughout is modern and very luxurious. It has its own pool, with deck chairs, sun beds and a barbeque for your use. It has also a covered veranda furnished with an armchair and rattan and glass dining furniture where you can enjoy light dining while being out of the sun. The local agents are on call 24 hours a day so will be on hand to help if there is a problem. They can also arrange car hire, tickets to local attractions, venues, concerts, tours etc. We did not use them for any of these but they did keep in touch with us regularly.

The West Coast is one of the most sought after destinations in Barbados, particularly since it is also near prestigious golf courses at Sandy Lane and The Royal Westmoreland, and also the polo and other events at Holders and Apes Hill. But even closer still is the wonderful beach just across the road where you can just relax, literally swim with the turtles very close to the shore, and then enjoy a well earned drink and snack at one of the beach bars. And then of course are all the other attractions on the island all of which are easily accessible.

Everything is just tailored to make it the perfect holiday, but the real anchor to making it so special is this wonderful villa. It is such a relaxing house to stay in; and it really is home from home while you are there. We would recommend it as a base for anybody, be it a group of friends, a family or just a couple wanting to relax in immaculate surroundings. Thank you very much – that’s just what we did and had a wonderful time. It really was a most comfortable base to enjoy a really memorable holiday!

Gorgeous Barbados Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is a real gem, located in a quiet and pretty gated private road. Great location, perfect for exploring the beaches and restaurants along the west coast. The nearest beach has a pedestrian access within a few minutes' walk. Really comfortable and extremely spacious house. It has a beautiful, large verandah in front, and inside the house is delightful. Very luxuriously furnished... everything is super-comfortable and very high quality. Lovely accessories, lighting and artwork . All the bedrooms are different, each one with its own style and look, and the bathrooms are amazing! The master suite is wonderfully large. All the beds are fantastic quality and very comfortable. It is all very personal, and has the feel of a beautiful family home, as everything has obviously been chosen with care by the owners. Friendly, lovely housekeeper who looks after the house and keeps it looking wonderful every day - so that you can enjoy some of the benefits of a hotel in a private home environment - which makes it more of a holiday for everyone. There is a very nice private pool and deck area with barbecue to one side of the house, surrounded by pretty Barbados flowers and leafy plants. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to any family or large group - if it's available, snap it up!
