A fully equipped, self catering Holiday Home Rental. Away from it all.
About Rob G.
Gibbs Palms is our privately owned house. It is used mainly by us, family, and close friends. But it does have some available times open to people looking for a fun and relaxing Barbados holiday.
Rob G. purchased this Cottage in 1972
Why Rob G. chose Gibbes
A great location to explore Barbados from. The cottage is perfect for a couples private holiday or spacious and economical home for 2 couples travelling together, Gibbs Beach is so perfect for a quiet holiday in a picturesque Caribbean postcard setting. Long term 3 or 4 weeks, or just 1 week, Gibbs Palms works for it all.
What makes this Cottage unique
The large Pride of India and Flamboyant Trees along with the openness for the predominant easterly breeze keeps the Gibbs Palms house and property cool and comfortable. The gardens and the birds that frequent the garden are a delight

Fits like a glove
This was our second stay and everything just gets better. Thank you Rob and Honor. The house was wonderful, we loved the new bedroom colour and the new gas BBQ. The classic brick one was a challenge for us. We will always go in June now because it is so wonderfully quiet and relaxing. Gibbes beach was ours most days to walk, swim and enjoy to ourselves. The people are so friendly around the island and glad to see you because of the fewer tourists around. The mangoes were insane all around the island! The tree in the yard produces the tastiest we have ever had. More than we could eat, we could not keep up with them. Making mango banana smoothies and sometimes daiquiris was a glorious daily treat.
It is only about 2 degrees warmer than in the winter and 100 times nicer than at home this time of year. We are going to work out the details to get back next year. Thanks Again. Terry and Julie
An excellent property, slightly off the beaten track but close to everything you need. the property manager is easily available if you need anything and the grounds are very private and peaceful.
Wonderful relaxing holiday near the beach
This is the fifth year we have rented Gibbs Palms, ranging from three-week to six-week stays.
We love the more traditional style of this cottage, with the relaxing garden and closeness to Gibbs Beach, which is only a five minute walk away.
The owners, Rob and Honor continue to make annual improvements to the cottage.
It's always a relaxing, chill out stay for us on the island, and we are already planning to re-book for 2020.
Wow! What a great five-week stay at Gibbs Palms in Barbados! It is not our first stay here, but it was our very best. We have always loved Gibbs Palms, but the most recent improvements have made it our perfect home away from home. The recent addition of air conditioning in the two bedrooms along with kitchen and master bathroom upgrades and new light fixtures in the living room were greatly appreciated. The patios and the yard remain among the highlights of this modestly priced rental. There is no better bargain for staying so close to one of the best beaches on the West Coast of Barbados. This is one property that is actually better than described and better than the pictures! Highly recommended! We will be back- already booked for five weeks next year!
Calming Home Base
Gibbs Palms was the best location for our circling of the island. My wife and I went to experience as many Barbados beaches this trip as we could. An easy location to get to and at the end of each enjoyable day, at one beach or another, we could come home to relax. The outdoor shower was appreciated, we could get the sand out of the nooks and crannies on our return each day. Gibbs Beach is also a wonderful beach, we spent time there also when resting from our explorations. Not many beaches better than Gibbs. We also got home late and tired many times, instead of cooking we found we could order in from the Speightstown chinese (East Moon), or pizza places (Pizzaman Doc or Zacchios). The house was immaculate on arrival and is bright, cheery and welcoming. We love Barbados and Gibbs Palms is highly recommended by us.
Best Rum Punch
Thanks Rob. The place was wonderful, so set up for beach days and evenings home. We had the best time searching the island for who makes the best old style rum punch. We had so much fun/rum trying see to which of the 4 of us made the best RP every evening at the house. During our day travels the verdict for the best old style RP is the Round House Restaurant on the east coast.The most potent and a good runner up is at One.Eleven, in Speightstown. BTW: go see Arturo Tappin play at One.Eleven on thursday night. He is an amazing jazz saxophone player, such a fun band, and a great evening out. We will make our way back to Gibbs Palms as soon as we can co-ordinate our schedules and funds. Cheers.
