About Michael Cotton

We are Michael & Julie, a professional English couple who enjoy travelling and love beach holidays that offer a blend of activity and relaxation. We are both foodies and love eating out, enjoying international cuisine and sampling the local specialities.

We started choosing villa stays over hotels several years ago, finding the freedom that it offered, better suited the way we wanted to spend our holiday time, enjoying the privacy of having our own living areas and pool.

That's why we chose Palm Tree Villa! We have visited Barbados many times and love the fun and friendliness of the people we meet on this beautiful island. The sun, the sand and the Caribbean Sea collide to make Barbados a perfect location to spend time with friends and family or enjoy quite time and romantic walks along its many soft sand beaches.

We live in the UK but will visit as often as we can. When we are not staying in Palm Tree Villa we will rent or swap if for similar properties around the world.

Michael Cotton purchased this villa in 2015

Why Michael Cotton chose Holetown

Location, Location, Location! We wanted a property that gave us access to all that Barbados had to offer and a place that first time visitors to the island could feel comfortable, knowing that everything they need is on hand without having to hire a car if they didn't want to.

Palm Tree Villa is a short walk to the beach, shops, restaurants & bars and the beach club facilities, of The Beach House.

The villa is spacious and feels like a home from home, not a holiday rental and we have tried to make it comfortable as well as practical . It is spacious, allowing families to spread themselves and find their own space.

What makes this villa unique

Palm Tree Villa was architect designed and rebuilt 4 years ago and stands out among its neighbours as the only house 2 storey house on the street. The pool with water fall and coral stone arch surround, has been beautifully designed and is a great place to relax at any time.

Simply entering the house, though the gate leading straight into to the garden and onto the arched terrace feels like the entrance to the start of a great holiday

Fantastic Villa in Holetown.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from our 2 weeks stay in Palm tree villa in Holetown.

The villa is very special,decorated to a very high standard with lovely landscaped pool and garden area.

Location is second to none only a short walk to the beach -bars -restaurants and supermarket.

The membership to the beach club also came in very handy.

Michael & Jules the villa owners are great to deal with, answering all our questions and also sorting some groceries for us as we didn't arrive till late on a Sunday evening.

We were on holiday to celebrate my husbands 60th Birthday and Michael & Jules had left a card and a bottle of champagne for him - very kind 😊

We were met on our arrival by Julie the villa manager who was also a really nice lady and was quick at responding to a problem we had with the dishwasher - an engineer was called and it was fixed promptly.

We would really like to come and stay again soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Lesley, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the Birthday celebrations went well. As we had been there ourselves the week before it was good to be able to start off the celebrations, we loved the photo of you all on the terrace. You will always be welcome back anytime. Kind regards Michael & Jules

The property was extremely well kept and maintained and the private pool was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well situated and beautifully decorated and very welcoming. As a family of 8 we were all very comfortable and enjoyed many hours lounging in the outdoor living space. The private pool was magnificent and we all enjoyed many hours of use. The house provided everything that we needed to prepare our meals and enjoy our time there. The membership to the beach club was a great advantage as we enjoyed many hours here using the pool and access to the beach as well as a great place to have lunch. We found that everything that we needed was within walking distance (supermarket and restaurants). Julie the house manager was extremely helpful and always reachable. I would highly recommend The Palm Tree Villa as a place to make wonderful family memories as well as a place for friends to meet for a vacation.

Beautifully presented

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully presented, clean and offered spacious accommodation.

Being recently refurbished it contained everything you would need, including a large fridge/freezer, cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and a separate TV room. Air con throughout. Each bedroom was well appointed and furnished.

It has a plunge pool (welcomed for cooling down), a separate bar and a large gas barbecue together with a large furnished outside seating area. There were 6 in our party and there were enough sunbeds for us to have one each so no dashing to get your towel down first.

The location was perfect for access to some of the West Coast's best beaches and a short walk to a new large supermarket where you could buy just about everything you might need. Duty free purchases could be made at the local Cave Shepherd no more than a 2 minute walk away.

Faultless, absolutely perfect for a week away in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We booked Palm Tree Villa for a week’s holiday in May, heading to Barbados with our family to our Son’s wedding.

We arrived at the Villa and were met by Julie who was absolutely delightful, she gave us a tour of the house and gardens and told us everything that we needed to know about Holetown, best tour guide ever!

The villa was simply perfect, every room decorated beautifully, so spacious and accommodated 7 of us effortlessly. The kitchen was very well equipped and we wanted for nothing. The gardens are kept beautifully and the pool is such a bonus, we made very good use of all the outside space.

We ventured to the supermarket daily, a ten min walk away and took advantage of the Beach Club, great pool, access onto the beach and lovely food at lunchtime (recommendation - curry) We also spent many evenings at a nearby beach bar, many many cocktails later the short walk home to the villa was interesting!

Whilst we didn’t spend s lot of time looking around the shops (mostly because of husband!) there are a few gorgeous individual places that you must visit at Limegrove that sell really unusual homewares and clothing, a far cry from the usual touristy stuff, I could have spent a fortune.

Back to the villa, well we didn’t want to leave, our week flew by and we all wish we had booked a fortnight.

Julie met us as we left and although we didn’t need to contact her during the week it was great knowing that she was on hand locally.

A truly wonderful Villa, best we have ever stayed in, thank you so so much.

Amazing home and fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from 10 fabulous nights at this lovely home, well equipped, fabulous linens, ample towels. Beautifully and tastefully deocorated. Sweet pool which was amazing for an evening dip.

The location is perfect! Michael and Jules have thought of everything and Julie the house manager is attentive, hard working and always accessible. Would highly recommend this for a family traveling or a few couples. Thank you for sharing your home with us! Will be back!

Beautiful, well maintained propery in a good location. Ideal for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 adults and 2 small children in our party. The villa was perfect for us as it was safe, well equipped, clean, modern and had plenty of room. The children loved the pool and garden and we had a great family holiday. The location of the villa was good too as it was in a quiet residential area within easy reach of the beach, Beach Club, restaurants and the supermarket. The owners have obviously thought carefully about their guests and have paid great attention to detail, like providing reading glasses and games to entertain children on wet days. Jules was always happy to help with any queries and did everything she could to make our stay a comfortable and happy one. We would love to return!

Car: not necessary

Situated in Holetown, only a walk across the road to the Caribbean Sea and minutes away from a large supermarket, the Chattel village shops and the Lime Grove shopping mall, where designer clothes abound. The Lime Grove open courtyard bar and eating area is a lively meeting place, particularly on a Friday with music and great food. There is a good range of restaurants and a luxury cinema offering table service for food during your movie!

Holetown has a fabulous selection of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, Tides, Drift, Zaccios and Surfside sports bar, are all right on the beach. 1st and 2nd streets have a great lively vibe and plenty of eateries to choose from.

A few minutes by car are the world renowned restaurants, The Cliff, Daphne's and Lone Star, all overlook the Caribbean and booking prior to your holiday is recommended.

Sports fans can enjoy a visit to the famous Kensington Oval, with a distinctive media centre much like it's UK name-sake. Polo the 'sport of kings' is played at Apes Hill and Holders, ($10), both 10 minutes by car from Holetown. If you are new to Polo, there's no better place to start. The locations are stunning and the fast pace of this highly skilled sport is awesome.

If doing, rather than watching is your thing, then you will find plenty of opportunities at the beach to try sailing, wave running or horse riding. Book a trip to swim with the turtles for a truly wonderful experience.

Both Sandy Lane and the Royal Westmorland golf courses are 5 minutes away by car. These stunning courses have to been seen to be believed.

Holetown is well served by the local bus service that will speed you into Bridgetown and beyond, or further along the west coast to Mullins Beach or Speightstown. Its an adventure at $2 a trip not to be missed.
