About the property

3 bedroom villa with private pool, garden, WiFi, and 2 min walk to the beach

hideAway is a beautiful villa featuring private pool and landscaped gardens, with beautiful Bottom Bay beach just 150 yards away. The luxury villa has three large air-conditioned bedrooms (master bedroom features a super King size bed, en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet), a fully equipped kitchen, and a relaxing, recently extended spacious verandah (our favourite spot) overlooking the private pool complete with a gently refreshing sea breeze. The living room has comfy lounge seating for six, Smart TV with NetFlix and cooling ceiling fans (no air-con in the lounge as the french doors out to the veranda are usually open whilst the villa is occupied). hideAway is one of the more spacious villa designs in Atlantic Rising with a layout affording guests ultimate privacy with no adjoining walls between bedrooms.

FREE High-speed internet with WiFi and a phone with FREE calls to all landline and mobile numbers in Barbados (very handy for booking restaurants, trips, etc).

Bottom Bay is a beautiful, peaceful location, far away from the crowds. All villas are privately owned with a friendly atmosphere amongst the residents.

We provide all our guests with an island guide and maps, as well as our own personal recommendations gathered from our many visits over the years. In addition, our highly praised friendly staff who help to manage and maintain the villa, will do all they can to make your stay in Barbados enjoyable and restful. Our property manager will discuss any requirements you may have and will always be on hand to help with any queries or recommendations you may need. Any additional services you may wish to use will be charged locally.

This is a beautiful villa located very close to the beach for your ideal holiday rental in Barbados, set in the small and friendly development of Atlantic Rising. As the owners of hideAway we are justifiably proud of our property and sincerely hope that your stay will be the first of many. Everything has been provided so you can just relax and enjoy your stay from the moment you arrive at your villa in the sun.

A true HIDEAWAY from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Barbados Info: One of the most enchanting Caribbean islands, the most eastern island in the Caribbean, Barbados has been called 'England in the tropics' because of its intriguing mix of British and African culture. Cricket and polo are the main sports and afternoon tea is still a pleasant ritual kept here, something one might expect in a country that has been under British rule from its settlement in 1627 until its independence in 1966.

Barbados is one of the best places in the world for windsurfing. The surfing is good here especially on the South and East coast, which is buffeted by the Atlantic waters.

Barbados rum is world famous, and visitors can learn more about how it is made at the Mount Gay Rum Visitors Centre. Or even closer to the villa is the smaller lesser known distillery of Four Squares rum which has a lovely visitor centre and tasting options.

Another popular attraction is Harrison's Cave, a limestone cavern with a waterfall stalactites, and stalagmites. Barbados is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the friendliness of its people and beauty of its beaches and natural wonders.

Bottom Bay beach is the perfect setting for a Caribbean wedding.

Please note that we do not allow large social gatherings (inc weddings, parties, family reunions, etc) at the villa unless previously arranged and agreed directly with the owners.

Prices may be higher for the Christmas/New Year period - please enquire for price confirmation.

Very nice and relaxing place. So near the ocean. We are so relaxed and hate to go back to the snow! Great hosts and all we needed was at hand. Enjoyed the green lizards (ghekos) and finches and saw our first mongoose!!

Very nice, Carol the owner was nice to work with and everything was very accommodating. Pleasant house located in bottom bay. Had a great time and Jan and her husband were very nice property managers as well. Thanks Carol for opening up and letting us use your place.

Exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples sharing the villa from Feb 10 - 24 2018.

From the initial booking query, through the reservation process and all our questions, to our incredible two week stay, Carol was a pleasure to deal with.

Jan met us at the villa and gave us a brief but comprehensive orientation. We immediately changed into beach gear, abandoned our luggage and headed for Bottom Bay. What an incredible place to be able to call "your beach" for two weeks. Once night fell we returned to the villa and our pool and bobbed around drinking rum.

The kitchen has everything required for cooking at home, plenty of pots, frying pans, plates, cups and glasses - as well as plastic to take in the pool. It's long and narrow but able to accommodate two people working together.

We split the time between bedrooms thanks to the mid-stay clean which meant bedding was washed and replaced. The master bedroom has a comfortable king bed and plenty of storage space in the walk-in closet. The en-suite comprises a shower, sink and toilet, and there is limited space for toiletries. The second bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and plenty of storage space in the closet. The bathroom in the hallway comprises a larger shower, sink and toilet, also with limited room for toiletries. We did not use the room with twin beds. On our arrival all bedrooms had a towel/flower arrangement on the beds, a very nice touch.

The living room comprises a couch, two easy chairs and side/coffee tables with a flat-screen smart tv on the wall. It is very nicely decorated and looks very inviting but we found no occasion to sit in there. Leading from the living room through the french doors is a large covered patio with a large table and six chairs. That is where we ate all our meals, rehashed the days adventures, shared (more than) a few drinks and generally hung out. The temperature and constant breeze make it a perfect place to sit day or night. The pool and four recliners are all steps away from the table. Thanks to Jan and Jon for sorting us out with the BBQ.

Jan pointed us towards a few rum shacks. Spend some time at AJ's (walk to the main road, turn right, it's after the school), it's a great place to chat to locals and have cheap drinks.

In short the villa was well maintained, clean and just as seen on the website. We had everything we needed for our stay with the exception of beach towels. Big thank you to Carol, Jan, Jon and the support crew for an awesome time.

Wonderful, restful stay. We loved being on the unspoilt east coast, the sea breeze kept the temperature very pleasant along with the well maintained plunge pool. Everyone very friendly & helpful.

Comfortable and affordable

  • 3 of 5

Hideaway was a pleasant villa It was an easy 3 minute walk to Bottom Bay beach. The beach is stunningly beautiful but be mindful of the waves. This is not a beach for children or a weak swimmer. The waves were over 6 feet at times with a very strong current. For my family it was a nice visit for an hour but it was too much for our daily relaxing beach trip. We visited the quieter beaches such as Miami and Dover beach both lovely and safe.

We would highly recommend Zeds for surfing. Junior was a fantastic instructor. Easy and understandable instructions. The surfing location was ideal.

Be sure to have lunch at Cutters it is reasonably priced and delicious.

We ventured up the pot hole highway to Atlantis beach resort definitely not worth the drive.

The hideaway villa had all the basics. It was clean and well decorated. The pool was a nice addition to the unit. Thank you Jan and John for securing the BBQ and for getting some groceries for our arrival.

Beautiful and relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at HideAway was amazing. It truly felt like a home away from home. Was clean and very comfortable. The pool was great to have and the house had all the amenities to make for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Carol has provided a booklet full of information on Barbados and places to see which we found to be very helpful. Jon and Jan looked after us and were great! We can't wait to go back next year:)

Fantastic Villa!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Carol, my family and I had a wonderful time at your villa. Location was perfect for us, far from the busy tourist areas but still easy with rental car to get to grocery store and beautiful Crane Resort! We enjoyed having Bottom Bay to ourselves and met many friendly locals on our walks. The only complaint would be from my kids not being able to get a strong enough signal to get internet- fine with me though! Could you please thank your house cleaner for me, on the day of our arrival my son was very excited about the coconut tree in your yard and she showed him how to get one and cut it to drink the water from it. She was gone when we got back from the beach and she had left some coconuts for him... I never got a chance to thank her! If we ever get the chance to visit Barbados again we will definately rent your villa.

Sincerely,

Stephanie Burghardt

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Stephanie and I will gladly pass your thanks on to our lovely housemaid, Marcy. We love having our own coconuts growing in the garden? With regard to the Internet issue we have now put a MiFi service in the villa which has improved the service strength, and also provides an alternative/back-up service to the current WiFi ? Thank you for being our guests at hideAway and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

Emerald City SHOPPING village at Six Roads is less than 10 minutes drive away with supermarkets, bank, petrol station, Dr, post office and restaurant with children's play area. The large, well-stocked (with local and international brands) supermarket is open every day from 8am to 10pm except on Sundays when it closes at 7pm. This is one of the best supermarkets on the island.

Polo, horse riding, biking, Segway, Zip Wire and hiking are all available at various locations on the island.

hideAway is located on the beautiful south-east coast of Barbados in the parish of St Philip. There are a number of breathtaking bays and beaches nearby including Foul Bay, The Crane*, Palmetto (Merricks), Harrismith and Sam Lords - to name just a few. There is also excellent surfing within 25 mins drive at Silver Point (South coast) and the world famous Soup Bowl at Bathsheba (East coast).

*Named “One of the Top 10 Beaches in the World” by the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and the BBC’s Holiday program says that Crane Beach is one of the “Top 100 places to see before you die.”
