Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Saint Lawrence Gap - Villa Jarrow

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Oceanfront Villa Vacation Rental, Worthing, Barbados

Jarrow, a 19th century coral-stone villa, is nestled on the beautiful south coast of Half Moon Bay, St. Lawrence. Its gentle elevation allows you to sit on the sun deck and watch the fishermen go out to the sea early, and return with the day's catch -- which you can have freshly prepared in the comfort of your villa.

The gingerbread-style villa boasts three double bedrooms, two large bathrooms, and spacious mirrored dressing room. From the foyer, living/dining area, sun deck and well-equipped kitchen, you can enjoy the spectacular views of the sea.

The unique beach is at your doorstep. It's protected by a reef, and is excellent for swimming in the day or at night.

The skylights in the bedrooms and lounge enable you to view the beauty of the moonlight, and to welcome the morning sun. The southeast breezes of the Caribbean sea continuously waft through the villa, keeping it fresh and cool.

There are ideal swimming conditions for children as high tide is always low in the bay.

We are a 15-minute drive from the airport, and are close to leading restaurants, nightclubs, supermarkets, shops, and golf courses. Snorkeling, sailing, scuba diving, and windsurfing are available in the bay.

Why Timothy Boyce chose Christ Church

Let our Previous guest answer this question:

2) The best vacation spot on the island! Left on 04/17/2014 for a stay in March 2014. This was our second time spending our vacation at Villa Jarrow and we could not have asked for anything more. The location, view and accommodations were just perfect. We saw many people walking by on the beach, looking at us with envy as we lounged or barbecued on the front balcony overlooking the ocean. In addition to the Villa being a great place to stay, the water out front was perfect for swimming. Clear blue and calm, with beautiful sand bars that we could walk or swim out to. We even saw a sea turtle swimming through the water on many of the days we sat out front.

The location was the best! Despite driving around the whole island, and visiting several other parishes and beaches, we came to the conclusion that we still thought ours was the best of the bunch! We would definitely return again and have recommended Villa Jarrow to many of our friends already. Timothy was the best - he called to check in on us several times during the week always jolly and willing to help us out with any inquiries we had! He even drove us to the grocery store on the first day so we could stock up our kitchen for the week! Thanks Timothy for making our stay as amazing as it was!

37Nicola London, United Kingdom: What a view and turtles!!!

) You're not on the sea, you're in the sea...I keep the pictures of this place in my appointment book back home so I can day dream...' - Mr. Rousseau, Quebec, Canada

5) 'We had a glorious time here... We all can see God's handiwork & the beauty of His creation right here in Barbados!' - Mr. & Mrs. Peterson, Texas, USA

What makes this villa unique

This Property was built in Barbados a business man from the Industrial Coal Mining Town of Jarrow on the River Tyne in England. Its on one of the best beaches on the Island and one of the unique features of this Beach at Half Moon Bay is the historical practice of fishermen bringing in the days catch of Fresh Fish available in the Bay . The fishermen catch them fresh off the Reef and fillet them ready for the grill !!! Our guest love this experience!!!

At this location you are within walking distance to all requisites for an enjoyable Holiday. A Taxi or hired car is only necessary if you are going for an Island Tour. You can also swim with the Turtles in the Bay... The patio of the Villa Overlooks the Beach..... The Bay is where you will experience a New Years Eve Fantastic Fireworks display on the Water. This is put on by the businesses in the St. Lawrence Gap.

There are many other activities awaiting our guest. If you enjoy lovely Sunsets, or welcoming the morning Sun, looking across the water to a blue Horizon, Jogging along a wide long beach, snorkeling and being within waklking distance to all night life and the best restaurants on the Island then this Villa is your Home away from Home. Its owner will combine his Resort Experience to create that lasting Vacation experience that you deserve.

best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent months searching for the perfect vacation house and when we arrived at Villa Jarrow I knew I had found it. My kids and grandkids would stay there the week of Aug.7th to the 13th and when they leave my husband and I would spend the next week. My husand loved the place so much that if it is ever for sale he would buy it. My family had a great time there. They were able to get around without a car. The grandkids loved being on the beach. My son was able to walk toa fitness center and his wife was able to go jogging and she felt very safe. I would definitely use this place over and over again. Mr. Boyce is very nice. He is calm, clear and patient. I had a lot of questions and he answered them all either by texting or by calling. I would like to congratulate Mr. Boyce on his beautiful Villa. We wish him the best and hope that it will always be there for future generations to love and admire as we did. We really enjoyed it . It felt as though we were on our honeymoon. No cares in the world. I have been home for a week and I miss the place.

This was undoubtably the best location for a vacation we could have asked for. The pictures do not do it justice. I loved being able to stroll right out with my coffee and see the sea so close. Loved watching the sea turtles from the deck. The people were great. Timothy was a gracious host. I will be back as soon as I can get there! I have fallen for Barbados!

The place is perfect if you want a genuine (versus canned resort type) experience in Barbados. The house is historic and well kept. About the location, my daughter said it best "our backyard is the OCEAN!"

Warning should come with Rental

Really beautiful Villa- close to the beach and right at St Lawrence Gap- however there is a karaoke bar right across the street- it is like the bar is in the bedroom- it is very, very, very loud and last until 2:30 in the morning. It really ruined our vacation- also there is a restaurant right beside the villa and you can hear people dinner conversations from the outdoor deck of the restaurant. Would not recommend and I feel very put out that we were not told about this before renting.

Owner's Response: We were not advised at the time of writing our first response to this Review. See below!! However the reason for the 4 continuous nights of Karaoke was that the Bar was closing and they were trying to get rid of their stock that was sold at cost price. The KARAOKE BAR is now CLOSED . Some of my guest are very sorry others are happy... COME See and Believe!!! This Karaoke Bar operates on a Thursday and by Law should be closed by 1 AM. The police station is 2 minutes away and they enforce this!!! Many of our guest frequent this Bar and we have a Families who come every year to sing there. Some guest love it others do not!!! I must apologies to this client and wish that they had informed us about their situation as we do get good cooperation from the Bar. The 3 nights it operated were the exception and I will investigate this! The Villa sits next to the Italian restaurant and an Art studio. From the deck which overhangs the Beach we can see the dining of the restaurant guest as the restaurant also overhangs the Beach. Our guest love the Restaurant!! Villa Jarrow like most Beach Front accommodation on the Island attracts business that caters to guest needs and the Villa is within walking distance to most activity. The Down Side is more night life and activity.... The up side no Taxi, Hired Car or long journeys to and fro in the evenings... The police station is also close to the Villa and we do have an association with them and the Karaoke Bar to accommodate any guest request. Please see our other reviews and as I always say come , see and Believe as the positives of this Historic Property that is restored along its Historical lines far out weighs the only negative of proximity to a Bar!! There are 2 other reviews dating back to 2008 that are no longer relevant as the Night Club is now a Brazilian Restaurant and the other client came at the time of the Carnival (Crop Over) festival which is much activity all over the Island. Our repeat Clientele is over 60%!!! Please Come, See and Believe!!!

Fantastic setting with a great host.

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed here many times and each time is a s good if not better.

The place is clean and has had a good bit of work done keeping it fresh.

It is a very small walk to the amenities in St Lawrence Gap and is right on a quiet beach with a sheltered area for swimming.

Owner's Response: This is the average guest review and that's why our repeat client base is so high.. There are some guest who are looking for absolute peace and quiet and it will be difficult to find much of this on the Beach Front of any coast i Barbados..

Everything we expected.....and way way more

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days here in the new year and had the most fabulous time. We dealt with Timothy from start to finish. The man is a complete professional. Completely honest and thoroughly helpful. He arranged for the taxi to pick us up at the airport and was there to greet us at the villa. The villa is well equipped, spotlessly clean and perfectly situated. I cannot imagine there's a better location anywhere on the island. There are 2 spectacular beaches within a couple of minutes walk that are not packed but are quite well populated but right outside the rear doors of the villa is a beautiful bay that couldn't have had more than a handful of people on it in all the 10 days we were there. From the deck you will see the 3 sea turtles that shelter in the bay. They will let you swim within touching distance of them. St Lawrence Gap has many very good restaurants and bars. They all offer something a little different from each other. I had read a review of the villa that complained about noise and whilst I agree that it may have spoilt their stay but can you expect to stay in the busiest, liveliest part of the island and not expect to hear late night music. We rang Timothy for help and advice a couple of times during our stay. He always picked up and was more than happy to help. Our only downside of the complete trip was being ripped off by the vodka bar across the road. Twice as much as anywhere else, plastic cups, hardly any drinks to choose from. Do yourself a favour avoid this place, there's literally hundreds of better places to drink.

Do yourselves a bigger favour BOOK THIS VILLA. It's paradise

Thanks Timothy for everything
