5 Bedroom Speightstown Villa, with Pool and Private Garden

Bedrooms 5
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 12 nights


About the property

Accommodates 10 adults or 8 adults and up to 6 children. Close to the beach.

Chindwin is located on the edge of Speightstown, to the North of the West Coast of Barbados. It is just a 10 minute walk from the closest beach and the centre of town. Staying at Chindwin you can experience a special and unique style of holiday as the villa is very much a part of a charming local community. The neighbours are welcoming and friendly and you will soon feel at home with your new Bajan friends.

During your stay you can enjoy visits from native Green Monkeys making their way across the garden to the town (or back again!) where they gather the fruit from local gardens on a daily basis. In the evening, you may be treated to your own personal firework display as fireflies parade their luminous talents in the dark – a dazzling show of lights not to be missed. The orchestra of the night is courtesy of the crickets and tiny tree frogs who will sing you to sleep. In the garden, there are humming birds, butterflies, dragonflies and much more, which means that nature is very much part of Chindwin’s appeal.

Inside there is an extensive master bedroom with a king-size bed and ensuite shower. The master bedroom has a fabulous balcony from which you can look across Speightstown to the open sea beyond. The villa has 3 more bedrooms which have queen size double beds and a delightful children’s ‘dormitory’ which can sleep either 2 adults or up to 6 children.

All bedrooms have air conditioning, and the flexible layout provides a perfect family holiday home for two, three or even four generations to holiday together.

On the ground floor, there is a roomy living, dining and fully equipped kitchen area which, combined with a 40′ x 10′ covered patio at the rear and separate TV/Playroom, means that even at maximum occupation, there is plenty of space for everyone.

With complimentary Wi-Fi, TV and DVD player, entertainment is always available.

There are mosquito screens on the windows.

Housekeeping is included weekly and extra can be arranged at an additional cost.

The large 24ft x 12ft swimming pool is 7ft deep and provides the perfect place to cool off, perhaps after a challenging game of table tennis on the table provided. We also include 2 kayaks (with car fittings) along with various surf boards, boogie boards and snorkelling equipment for your use and enjoyment during your stay.

Chindwin provides a unique, rural location on the edge of Barbados’ third largest town - Speightstown. Speightstown remains relatively unspoilt by tourism and offers a wonderful insight into ‘old’ Barbados. There you will find a wide choice of ‘eateries’ ranging from the locally famous ‘white vans’ offering fantastic value ‘street food’ through to the Fisherman’s Pub (where you will meet ‘Junior’, the boss!), Island Plates and Little Bristol Beach Bar (where you just HAVE to try the Shark Wrap). There is The Lobster Pot, Jumas and a little further north is the Yacht Club at Port St Charles Marina and the famous Fish Pot Restaurant.

We would love you to share the experience of being our guests at Chindwin, and we look forward to welcoming you.

5 Bedroom Speightstown Villa, with Pool and Private Garden
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Fabulous villa in quiet location with pool

  • 5 of 5

Chindwin is a modern spacious 5 bedroom house set in large enclosed gardens with a good sized swimming pool . Our party of 8 comprising grandparents, a young family, and a single sibling found the house ideally suited for a large group wishing some separation when required. The downstairs annex ideal for the less mobile who struggle with stairs. Plenty of bathrooms and toilets and lots of fridge space and everything you need for a relaxing holiday on the beautiful west coast of Barbados. Set back but walking distance of the main bus routes a car is nice but not essential. Although set near to local residences we had no issues with any of the locals. The agent for the property Azizi was great and always available to assist if needed but not intrusive. Green monkeys parade along the boundaries at dawn and dusk and the local roosters visit the garden if you forget to shut the front gates. We found it a home from home and much preferred it to staying in a hotel. Lots of lovely beaches close by and plenty of reasonably priced eateries. I would definitely recommend Chindwin as a great find. Thanks also to Karen at Paradise rentals for all her help in making the booking process so simple.
