About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom house on the unspoilt SE coast of Barbados.

Bougan Villa is a lovely house with private pool situated in a small development in Bottom Bay on the unspoilt SE coast of Barbados. The house has been finished to a high standard and has all the accommodation and facilities needed to ensure that visitors have an amazing holiday on this beautiful island.

The well equipped kitchen contains all you need to prepare a six course banquet or a simple G&T! All three of the bedrooms are air conditioned and the master suite consists of a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room. The inside living area is comfortable, light and airy and leads out onto the shady extended terrace which is perfect for lazy days and al fresco dining overlooking the private pool and large lawned garden. The views from the roof terrace are even better... the perfect place to enjoy the sun rise or set.

There is free WiFi throughout the villa and the use of a telephone for free calls within Barbados.

Guest Book :: 'Wow what a holiday, accommodation was fab everything you need - comfortable, relaxing and a stones throw away for lovely beach, scenery and shops. Pool was fantastic. A great holiday never to be forgotten' Linda, April 2010

'Our holiday was fantastic. The location was superb with so many lovely beaches a short walk away. The Villa was light, bright and immaculately clean with everything you could wish for on a holiday and much more. The pool area was lovely, and the garden very pretty. We didnt have to move to have a fantastic time! Karen, April 2010

The local beaches were beautiful and quiet, hardly anyone to share them with. The barbecue was great for the staying in nights around the pool.' JMD, March 2010

Fantastic place. House had all we needed and a block from beautiful bottom bay beach. However beach is not swimmable - undertows. My only complaint is we had to drive to any swimmable beaches. We spent a lot of time on the terrace and in the little pool after being at the beaches all day. Safe and quiet place. Very enjoyable

Owner's Response: Hi Cheri Thanks for your positive review, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. There are several beaches within walking distance of the villa, the nearest being beautiful Bottom Bay - a few minutes walk from the villa. If you prefer a calmer sea then Sam Lord's Beach is for you, it is just 15 minutes on foot from the villa. The Northern end of the beach is protected by a natural wall of rocks meaning that the water is very calm and is therefore perfect for less confident swimmers. The water is crystal clear, the sand is white and in our opinion it is the best beach in the world!

Clean, fresh and well prepared villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa has all that is needed with the exception of one item, a microwave was not part of the deal but it is missed. There's a few other small points like bed heads, but this can be ok. However, there is an issue which is going to be put right and that is the security locks on some of the windows and the main front door, and more importantly the main external front door and frame itself which is a week internal door with the lock connection exposed on the outside. Like I said the villa is great but these issues need to be addressed mostly for night time security.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the positive points that you have made about about the villa, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We have now installed a microwave. You are mistaken on two points: 1. The main front door is not an internal door, and, 2. All of the window locks are working. Since receiving your feedback we have checked both of these points and so can confirm that the locks and door are exactly as they should be. Once again, we're very glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back to Bougan Villa again very soon.

A great villa away from the tourist traps, 5 minutes walk to the best kept secret Bottom Bay.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 2 weeks. Welcomed by John....lovely man who you see working hard buzzing around the properties.

Very private villa with everything you could ask for...its was extremely hot even for Barbadians apparently....35C in the shade almost everyday.

Although 'Low Season' the island was very quiet....so sourcing lunch out was a challenge....but we were delighted to drive to Enterprise (Miami) Beach...25 mins....to have the beach and sea literally to ourselves on many days ...bliss...lovely to swim with the locals at 0730...stunningly clean beach and views.

Please visit Huntes Gardens.....beautiful and have a drink with Anthony to get the history, walk on cattle wash beach on the east coast....desolate but stunning.

If you want a catamaran trip...the only way to go is Calabaza...they only take 12 people...price the same as the others with 20 + on. They pick you up from the villa, crew fantastic, swam with turtles and over ship wrecks...fab lunch.

Then we experienced Tropical Storm Matthew for a few hours before it left the Island...all credit to the island ...you wouldn't have believed it had happened the next day.

John & Jan thank you for your friendly but unobtrusive advice and welcome to your island.

PERFECT! 5 ********

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I have just returned from a weeks stay here and this is genuinely a piece of paradise! The villa is beautiful with 3 full bedrooms, AC, full kitchen with all the utensils, living room inside and out with full size 6 seater table and BBQ and of course the lovely pool.

We hired a car from what Nicola recommended and this was went without an issue. You need a car really as it's a bit off the beaten track but this is what makes it so perfect!

The Bottom Bay beach is literally about 5 minute slow walk at the bottom of the road, and by far this was the most beautiful we saw on the island and we saw quite a few!

Jan and John were SOOOO lovely and made our stay even more enjoyable, anything you want to know they will know. They're so friendly and helpful and a really lovely couple and an assett to the villa.

There is absoloutely nothing bad to say here about the island or the villa other than stay longer than a week as you won't want to go home. I've not been home 12 hours and already writing this review so people realise how fabulous it is.

Hopefully I can return very soon! Also, the Bajan people are amoungst the nicest people I've ever met, so warm and kind, always helping with directions with a smile!

Thank you Nicola for sharing your peice of paradise!

Incredible stay in February, March 2012!

  • 5 of 5

......amaaaaazing! What a gem we found in renting this beautiful home! The house was soooo clean upon our arrival! (we have had bad experiences in the past so we were worried). NOTHING to worry about here! The caretakers John and Jan were there for us for ANYTHING we needed at any time. They went way above and beyond for us. The contact with Nicola prior to booking was a breeze as she answered all of our questions so promptly whenever we had them. She organized a packet of info of things to do and see, restaurant prices, even a little point of interest map to follow with amazing sites to see along the way. Who does this? They do! They care so much that everyone enjoys themselves and it shows! THANK YOU!!!

Bottom Bay
Car: recommended

Bottom Bay beach (voted as being in The Times' and Conde Nast's top-ten best beaches in the world) with its white sands and coconut palms is 3 minutes amble away. Harrismith, Palmetto and Long Bay are also stunning beaches which are just a short stroll. The gentle Atlantic breeze on this side of the island means that even on the hottest days the temperatures are comfortable.

The local speciality, rum, is very cheap on the island, and there are many types – the Four Square distillery is very close by and is great to visit. Rum shacks are everywhere on the island, and are quite an experience! Our favourite is Helene's Watering Hole at the entrance to St Lawrence Gap.

When it comes to dining, you are spoilt for choice in Barbados. Some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean (and some suggest the world!) are a short drive away.

There are sailing and helicopter trips departing daily from Bridgetown and diving, surfing and kite-surfing enthusiasts will be kept busy.

Other Activities: Kite surfing
