About the property

Beach Villa with panoramic views to the Caribbean Sea in Paynes Bay

Set in an amazing location, this beautiful and affordable beach front Villa is perfect for a romantic get away.

Lovely 2 Bedroom House, fully enclosed, directly on the Beach in Paynes Bay with beautiful views on the Caribbean sea.

Mahi-Mahi Beach Villa is just a foodstep from the lovely, meandering Paynes Bay beachfront in the internationally acclaimed West Coast area. Our guests simply leave just the garden and step onto the shore where they can immediately bathe in the breathtaking Caribbean Sea. They can amble for miles along curving white sands, beside the tranquil waters of Paynes Bay, Sandy Lane Bay, Sunset Crest, past Holetown & beyond. These waters are perfectly suited for dipping, swimming, lounging on floating gear & snorkelling at almost any place along the way. After this, you will begin to understand why the West Coast of Barbados is world-renowned.

Mahi-Mahi is a brief stroll from some of the finest restaurants & hotels in the Caribbean. There are also budget eateries close by.

Nearby are well-stocked supermarkets, mini-marts and a 24-hour convenience-mart. The charming, coastal town of Holetown lies 3 minutes northward along the West Coast road by vehicle, with banking, shopping, duty-free facilities & restaurants from the affordable to exclusive.

Guest Access

You can be assured of a friendly greeting when you arrive at the property and you'll be given the keys and properly familiarized with the house, its facilities and the local environment so you can settle in with the minimum of fuss.

We want you to enjoy your stay... However we do have a few rules:

No smoking in the rooms, bt you can smoke in the Patio.

Please conserve water and electricity.

Thank you and do enjoy your stay!

For those of you familiar with the West Coast, as we are new to the area, here are some nearby properties that will help you locate us - Tamarind Cove Hotel, Treasure Beach Hotel, Crystal Cove Hotel, Coconut Creek (now Sandy Cove), The Cliff Restaurant, Daphnes Restaurant, Crocodile Den, the petrol station at the bottom of Holders Hill, Bombas (now the Blue Monkey). The Coach House & Sandy Lane are a mile north. We are very near the Paynes Bay Methodist church, overlooking the bay.

Water sports abound on this coast and are sufficiently managed to reserve large stretches for tranquil sea bathing.

Superb bus service through Paynes Bay directly links us to: Bridgetown (9 mins), the South Coast (15 mins), Holetown (3 mins) & Speightstown (14 mins).

Barbados is truly a very beautiful island, with lots of art, activities, night life, music, history and some of the best restaurants to be found anywhere. But what makes Barbados even more special, and the reason why so many visitors keep returning to the island year after year, is the people. Barbadians, called Bajans, are warm and friendly souls, always ready to greet you with a sincere smile. Barbadians make you feel welcome and special, in this lovely Caribbean Island you will feel it’s your home and will want to come back again and again. Barbados: A unique Caribbean paradise, surprisingly sophisticated, friendly, fun and always charming.

Dream Holidays on golden sandy beach

  • 5 of 5

How do you describe a two bedroom cottage that is set right on the beach that every catamaran takes its guests to hunt for sea turtles and watch the sun go down? This is the perfect beach house in the most idyllic cove on the nicest side of Barbados. Mahi Mahi is simple, which makes it absolutely ideal if you're looking for your own piece of paradise to sit back and watch the world go by from your own porch. Step off your porch and you are on beautiful Paynes Bay beach. If you're thinking of taking one of those beautiful sunset cruises, don't bother. They'll just be taking you to your front door. Everyone is so friendly. We felt 100% safe there and everywhere we traveled on the island. If you want to jet ski, water ski, tube or whatever, the guys on the beach are great, nice and fun, and they'll help you with whatever you want to do. A short walk in either direction on the beach are beautiful snorkeling reefs with tons of gorgeous fish and beautiful live coral. The water is crystal clear with that beautiful Caribbean aqua color. (I miss it already!) The swimming is absolutely great. What a treat! The house is just south of Holetown, which is a 30-minute walk along a spectacular beach. Everything you'll need is in town (which you can walk to on the beach or the road or simply flag a bus for $1 a ride and it's a three minute ride - supermarket, great restaurants all around up and down the beach and just across the street. We had the best time everyday. We ate great food in Holetown at the Surfside, the Lone Star (my personal favorite) is further north, Daphne's, a short walk to the south (a bit pricey) and the little house diagonally across the street to the left with the tiny sandwich board on the sidewalk where they serve you from the family kitchen excellent island food.

What a wonderful time we had in Barbados! Manfred is a great host, always available when needed while making himself invisible otherwise allowing us to have privacy. His home is right on the beach and is equipped with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. We explored all sides of the island as we rented a car and the beach the house is on is one of the prettiest for sure. Thank you

Pleasant Payne's Bay Beach Bargain

  • 4 of 5

THIS IS A lovely little villa right on Payne’s Bay Beach.The living room décor is very tasteful and attractive. Being right on the beach is also great, with lounge chairs and umbrella provided. Especially enjoyable was the porch facing the beach where we ate and had drinks daily; basically there’s no wall between the porch and the living room.The bedrooms are equipped with air conditioners for comfort in sleeping.The beds also have netting if you prefer natural air. It is an open air living space, the windows only having louvered shutters. But bugs usually don’t fly in, it’s amazing. There are locks on the outside doors, garden door and parking gate, and a locking grille over the French doors. Use them.

THE BATHROOMS had some corrosion on the fixtures, I’m sure from the water, but all the plumbing worked fine.The owner said he was working on improving the baths.The kitchen has a gas stove and various countertop appliances. A variety of spices were provided for cooking too.

WE PAID about $30 for our week’s electricity usage by running the AC only when sleeping. Breezes were generally very pleasant throughout the apt.

DO NOT RENT a large vehicle if you stay here. We had a compact and were barely able to get the car in and out of the very narrow driveway and parking space.The buses run regularly but we imagine it could take a long time to get places on them, especially if you want to go sightseeing in the interior of the island as we did. Don’t forget they drive on the LEFT!

A SUPERB oceanfront restaurant, Daphne’s, is less than 10 minutes away on foot. We highly recommend it. The west coast area is filled with restaurants, and there is a grocery store a five-minute drive away in Holetown.The Mahi Mahi is between a public access walkway to the beach and a business hawking their beach options—jet skis, boat rides, lounge chairs, etc.; many of their chairs and dinghies were in front of the Mahi Mahi fence. Men sit around there not doing much and wait for business, talking and playing board games in the meantime. Barbadians are generally loud and the area is congested, so beware the noise level, which is high throughout the daylight hours.

THE OWNER Manfred was very responsive and easy to work with. We found the Mahi Mahi to be a good value for that area of Barbados, which is full of high-end hotels and fancy restaurants, so go and enjoy it!
