Staying at a villa means you can enjoy the comfort and privacy of your own home and equally enjoy the private space surrounding the home. Having a big large pool is a must for a large family group or multi-generational family.

Gardenia Villa is one of our most popular beachfront villas in Barbados, but not only is the home right on the beach, but it also features one of the nicest pools on the island.

Crystal Springs is not only one of the most beautiful beachfront villas in Barbados, but it is also one of the most beautiful we have come across anywhere in the world. Crystal Springs has an incredible location on a cliff top overlooking the Caribbean Sea and is embedded in 1.7 acres of lush tropical gardens and foliage. Crystal Springs is enveloped by nature on all sides. There is a beautiful natural gully that runs down to the sea. Just below the main house is a secluded cove, and the grounds are full of tropical flowers and the sounds of singing birds and tree frogs. The views from the house are breath-taking, and from almost every corner, you can see the crystal-clear azure waters.
The house is set over six different buildings and comprises a massive 12,000 square feet of spacious living space. Each of the six residences is connected by beautiful stone pathways, and terraces and the interiors are equally as exquisite as the exteriors. There are ten en-suite bedrooms in total making Crystal Springs one of the perfect choices for an intimate Barbados Wedding or a very special occasion.
There are many outdoor dining areas, but our favourite is the terrace which sits on the cliff top looking directly over the cove. It is made almost entirely from Coral Stone, and there are several beautiful trees to provide natural shade whilst you enjoy some exquisite food with the best views on the planet.
La Mirage at Old trees is another firm favourite villa of our Exceptional Villa Team. It was one of the first villas we every inspected, and despite having seen thousands of luxury Barbados villas since then, La Mirage remains one of our well devised, top choices.
The location on the top floor of The Old Trees Condominium Development is one of the most exclusive in Barbados and ensures some of the best views on the island. The large penthouse looks directly over Payne’s Bay Beach which is one of the nicest in Barbados and is easy to access with a short walking distance to the Sandy Lane Hotel in low tide. It is also possible to walk to several of Barbados best restaurants such as Daphne’s which is always a bonus.
One of our favourite parts of La Mirage at Old Trees is the terrace. It is a large spacious open plan living and dining area as well as embedding a beautiful plunge pool. There are few better places on the island of Barbados to enjoy a spectacular sunset, a barbeque or dinner under the stars with friends and loved one. The other aspect of La Mirage that we really like is the fact that it has two very beautiful king-sized ocean front bedrooms of equal standard making the property perfect for two small families or two couples vacationing together.
Whilst staying at Old Trees, you will be able to use the large communal pool anytime, and you will also be very well looked after by David, the Beach Butler who prepares your own private beds on the beach each day. Everything about a stay at this lovely Barbados villa is absolute bliss.
Smugglers Cove Barbados is a collection of very luxurious condominium style properties located on one of our favourite Barbados beaches; Payne’s Bay. They are without a doubt our most popular Barbados Vacation Rentals and for a good reason. The location on Paynes Bay, one of the islands best beaches, is hard to beat. They each have beautiful terraces, with access to the communal pool and a private area on the beach available only to guests of Smugglers Cove Barbados.
There are 8 properties to rent in total, and each of them is different in their layout and décor. The Smugglers Cove Penthouse offers a very contemporary and chic feel for example whilst Smugglers One Barbados has a beautiful Caribbean feel with the added benefits of being on the ground floor and having direct access to the pool and turquoise sea which is just a few steps from the terrace.
All our guests love Smugglers Cove, and many come back year after year.
