Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wow, thanks Yvonne for introducing us to this villa! We couldn’t believe our luck..Westshore is a gem – the views are just breathtaking & we loved relaxing on the deck..our kids were in their element on the beach-swimming & lots of snorkelling. We’re always particular about the location we choose & we’ve stayed in several places on the west coast but The Garden is exquisite. Our older kids enjoyed all that Holetown has to offer on 2nd street while we were in heaven watching the sunsets at Westshore! I’ve told my sister in law about it so she may be onto you in a few weeks!

Stunning location and so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Barbados for many years and Blue Lagoon is without a doubt one of our favourite vacation rentals on the island. It has the most amazing location with its own private cove. The sea is crystal clear and very calm for swimming. This was also our first time booking with Exceptional Villas. Both Julie and Yvonne were great and really organised. We will definitely be going again.

This stunning development is situated in The Garden Area which is Barbados’s most desirable and completely residential neighborhood. Merlin Bay offers the ultimate in privacy and exclusivity and is located just south of Speightstown and north of Holetown. It is a wonderful and private retreat yet only minutes from some of the best restaurants, golf courses and shopping in the world. The villas at Merlin Bay are among the nicest available for rental in St James.

ABOUT BARBADOS

As well as being popular with sun-worshippers, Barbados attracts snorkelers, surfers, scuba-divers, and fishermen. Barbados is also a wonderful vacation destination for the keen golfer with several championship courses designed by Tom Fazio and Robert Trent Jones. Smugglers 1 is located conveniently close to the the sea and many other recreational facilities

There are many wonderful areas for shopping. Bridgetown is definitely worth a visit and for those seeking designer shopping the brand new Lime grove Shopping Centre in Holetown offers a great selection of designer shops at duty free prices. The chattel shops in Holetown are also worth a mention for those looking for unique pieces.

If you would like to have a change of scenery from the beach, the Andromeda Botanic Gardens, near to Bath Sheba are wonderful to visit. You will also be able to gain an understanding of the complex history of Barbados by visiting some of the most impressive colonial plantation houses, such as St Nicholas Abbey. Then there is the stunning East side of the Island where the Caribbean sea meets the Atlantic Ocean with stunning and continuous swells making it the perfect place to try some surfing.

From the West Coast, south and East Coast, Barbados has a huge amount to offer added to greatly by the wonderful Bajan people who are full of charm and also always warm and friendly.
