Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Barbados - Bougan Villa at Bottom Bay

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

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!!!

If Carlsberg did holidays................

My first trip to the island and the rumors are true, it’s both captivating and calming. The Villa was perfect in the most idyllic and relaxing location with Bottom Bay on the doorstep; your own private expanse of gorgeous beach (that's how it felt as it was so quiet & empty most of the time).  Jan & John were very welcoming and the font of all local knowledge, with plenty of top tips for visits and happy to help at any time.  Plenty of time was spent relaxing in and by the private pool, and the odd cremated meal cooked on the built in bbq. There are plenty of local restaurants to visit (too many good ones to mention).  A fab 17 days of relaxation in top rated accommodation, we'd go back in a flash!

There's something about Barbados......

  • 5 of 5

Our second trip to Barbados and first at Bouganvilla. The house is lovely, very clean, great neighborhood, and for us a perfect location. It's away from the city and minutes to a fantastic beach with friendly locals. Jan and John were so welcoming, available when needed, ready with advise when asked. Great breezes on the beach and also for sleeping. We never used the a/c. My husband wished there was a blender for frozen drinks; I wish I was back at Bottom Bay, laying on a lounge chair with a rum and coke, listening to the waves, feeling the lovely breeze and watching the cow graze on the cliff. Can't wait until

next year!

You know when you have a high expectation about something, somewhere or someone, well what can I say, this exceeded it - not only the lovely, comfortable villa, the friendly locals, Jan the first point of contact, the beautiful surroundings, the nearby beach (it's practically your own), the banks beer, rum cocktails but what a great loacaton quite peaceful and only a stones throw from the exciting bussle of the West coast.

Our 10 days flashed by can't wait to go agian

Oh and the fish ......

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
