Self-Catering Rentals in Barbados for Your Home Stay

A plethora of fabulous sandy beaches and great historical attractions and cultural events like the Crop Over carnival and Oistin's Fish Festival make Barbados a top choice with visitors. A self-catering rental gives you with chance to really get to know this Caribbean paradise, and there's a friendly Bajan welcome at any time of year. Choose from the wild Atlantic coast or glamorous Caribbean beaches for excellent family days out. The Atlantic east coast of Barbados is a good choice for walking or exploring, and surfers will be in their element at Bathsheba where the famous 'Soupbowl' is a popular spot. Those with a more laid back approach can soak in the Bathsheba Pools which are natural baths carved out of the coral rock. Rum Punch parties at the pools are a favourite Bajan pastime, but avoid swimming at Bathsheba as there are dangerous currents and rip tides. The Caribbean beaches are perfect for swimming and the area is often called the 'Platinum Coast. Ideal for groups, families or couples, there's a beach to suit everyone. Choose Gibbes Beach for water sports and snorkelling in a relaxed setting, or Brownes Beach for scuba diving among shipwrecks on family days out. Go on a party cruise aboard the Jolly Roger pirate ship from Bridgetown. Walk the plank, swim with turtles or just party on board, it's ideal for fun loving groups of friends. For a unique view of the Caribbean take a submarine trip among the shipwrecks and the thousands of tropical fish who make the Freshwater Bay coral reef their home. Perfect as a treat for special occasions, couples can take a VIP trip during the day or at night to see a whole new undersea world. Harrison's Cave in the central uplands is a limestone cavern filled with towering columns, crystal pools and speleothems and this fairy tale attraction makes for a memorable day out. There are only three Jacobean mansions left in the western world, and Barbados is home to two of them. Dating from the 1650's, St. Nicholas Abbey and Drax Hall are superb examples of this wonderful architectural style. St. Nicholas Abbey is open for the public to admire grand staircases, mullioned windows and steep gabled roofs. For history lovers Blackman's Bridge near St. Joseph dates from around 1658 and molasses and egg white was added to make the boulder and stone arched bridge stronger. It spans a gully which is home to many animals including green monkeys. See Trafalgar Square in Bridgetown where the statue of Lord Nelson erected in 1813 is older than the square itself. Ladies will love shopping in Bridgetown. Broad Street is great for good jewellery and department stores, or try Pelican Village for Bajan crafts such as wall hangings and straw bags. Don't forget to stock up on delicious rum cake, perfect with coffee back in your luxury villa. Watch the sun set over the Caribbean from your terrace or head to Bay Street or St. Lawrence Gap for good restaurants, bars and clubs featuring reggae, calypso or RnB.

Best Time to Enjoy Barbados

Barbados is a great escape at any time of year. However, summer holidays are universally popular and if you've seen a luxury beachfront villa that you like it's advisable to book early since Crop Over also takes place during the summer period. Choosing Easter is likely to give you more choice when it comes to fabulous vacation homes and March is also ideal for visitors who want to experience all the fun of Oistin's Fish Festival, a famous Bajan celebration. A special occasion such as a wedding or major anniversary is the perfect reason to book a sophisticated luxury condo, and Valentine's Day is as romantic a time as you could wish for. There's always something to do on Barbados and the beautiful beaches are there all year round. Groups could come over a bank holiday to enjoy surfing, golf or cricket. Book a fabulous penthouse in St.Lawrence Gap to coincide with a top match or tournament and be perfectly placed for great nights out afterwards. Christmas and New Year is a time for families and there's no better place to enjoy the festive season than a holiday villa on Barbados. For those who want that extra special touch, a luxury holiday apartment with your own cook and housekeeper, or a spectacular villa with stunning views, pool and hot tub could be yours at any time of year for the holiday of a lifetime.
