Guestbook comments from the owner
I stayed 3 weeks over christmas and had a lovely time ! The villa was perfectly located and the view from the poolside was amazing. The villa had everything we needed and the bonus was that there was a travel cot which came in very handy. My husband and I would recommend this villa to anyone and we will be going back !!
5 based on 4 holidaymaker reviews
Stayed at New Moon Villa for 2 weeks in August myself my partner and our 10 year old son, who loved the pool as did we it was so warm he had such a great time the whole stay as he would be in the pool and then he would be in one of the immaculate bedrooms watching Netflix! cannot fault it, from the moment you arrive you are greeted by Ann-Marie who is so lovely, to the housekeeper who is a little gem, the Villa itself has everything you need a fully equipped kitchen all bedrooms have a/c also a BBQ which we used a few times by the pool. Whether you want to relax by the pool and watch the sun go down with a rum punch! a Banks Beer or laze in the hammock in the garden which is huge, Jack who looks after the garden and also will get you some coconuts! yum. If you don't want to hire a car you can walk down the road and get a bus or you can get a taxi no problem We used (Max 249-5115) As for eating out the Lone Star is a must you will not be disappointed just like you wont be disappointed with New Moon Villa I would 100% recommend this Villa, we shall be returning in February Next Year. (Owners Alun and Michelle) Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.
We had an amazing time at the New Moon Villa. The villa catered for all our needs and much more. The pool was a godsend and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the sun set each day while having a drink on the patio. Everything about the villa was superb; the cleanliness, the staff and the seclusion. We would love to return one day.
A beautiful villa, with stunning views
We have recently returned from a two week holiday at New Moon Villa. It was amazing !! We were a large group of 9 (4 adults and 5 children), and travelled to Barbados not only for a family holiday but to get married too. The villa had everything; and I mean everything that you could need. The private pool, and lovely gardens with spectacular sunset views are situated on the edge of a residential area with total seclusion, yet only a few minutes walk from Chris’ place to re-stock on essentials. The villa is set on a ridge approx 15 minutes walk downhill to Gibbes beach which can only be described as paradise and a beach that we mostly had to ourselves. If you are looking for a beach with facilities and watersports Mullins is the next beach (additional 5 minutes walk/3 by car) and we would highly recommend Mullins Beach bar for lunch or a sun-downer or two. The villa is fully equipped, bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen contained everything you would need to cater for a large group; including a large American Fridge/Freezer which easily housed almost 2 weeks worth of food for us all. Pool towels were included, together with a Sonos sound system which was great and easy to use. The TVs with Netflix were a welcome break from the sun for the children who enjoyed watching a number of movies. Anne-Maria our housekeeper was simply the best and couldn’t do enough to help, to come home from a holiday with no washing was a first for us! We opted not to hire cars, taxis were plentiful and to experience the yellow buses was great fun. A short walk to the bottom of the hill, the buses will stop for you and run up/down the coast all day long for 2 BD$ per person per ride. We shopped at Cost-U Less which we would recommend for large groups as most items you could buy in bulk.
The owners Alun and Michelle were fantastic hosts, Michelle pre-booked our airport transfers and Alun was quick to respond to our questions. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful Bajan home, we will be back.
New Moon Villa is an absolute gem of a Villa which surpassed our high expectations,
The location is absolutely stunning, serenity, privacy and spectacular sea views. The property is beautifully kept, the huge garden and evening sunsets with our own private pool and patio was simply paradise. We had everything we needed and more. The owners are obviously techies as the house is set up with the latest Sonos music system, (indoor and outdoor), huge TV’s in every room with android TV and Netflix. Our children even had a DVD player in their room to watch Frozen before bed every night…
On a practical side, the house is all on one level with a huge parking area and safe and secure. The staff, Anne Maria and Chris were friendly welcoming and could not do enough for us. Fresh coconuts, thanks Chris. We’ve already re-booked for 2015 ………
From the Owner
“We travelled a lot around Asia and the States and first went to Barbados in 2013 and just fell in love with the place. 6 months later we bought Villa Viktoria which we renamed New Moon after our daughter Emily who was orignially named after the childrens book, Emily of New Moon.”
Activity and Interests
2 minutes drive to the bottom of the hill is the lovely Gibbes Bay. Approximately 700m and 10 minutes if you want to walk it.
Allow 40 minutes for the 10 miles drive from the airport depending on traffic. Use of a car is not essential but highly recommended.
Chris's bar and variety shop is less than 1/4 mile. Holetown for nightlife, cafes bars, high end shopping and restaurants is approximately 4 miles, Mullins beach with its famous Bar is approximately 1 mile and Speightstown is approximately 2 miles for a more local shopping experience.
The large gardens provide limes, mangos, bananas and off course plenty of coconuts to keep the punch jug full. Pick them yourself or simply ask Chris the groundskeeper to who will shimmy up a tree on request.

From the Owner
“New Moon Villa is on its own on the west coast with a lovely view of the sea below. Being on its own large plot and not surrounded by other properties results in fabulously dark nights to enjoy the night sky if like me you are an amateur astronomer. The villa whilst on its own, is still very close to the nightlife bars and restaurants of Holetown and Friday night ribs at the nearby Chris's place is a must do.”
