In case you were wondering about the villas of Barbados…
Barbados is well-known for its favorable weather conditions and warm, friendly people. It is also known for its Platinum Coast, the West Coast, where celebrities frequent and often disappear into thin air. Or so it would seem. It’s no small wonder, therefore, that most of the luxury accommodations are found on this coast.
One type of luxury accommodation for a memorable Barbados vacation is the Barbados villa. These villas are privately owned. The owners occupy the premises at scheduled times during the year, while the properties are rented for the remainder of the year.
The word “villa” has caused many to recoil because of a common misconception - that it is un-affordable.
Yes, I admit. Barbados knows a thing or two about luxury. Enchanting beachfront villas deliciously wrapped in white, sandy beaches and regal palm trees; expansive private estates - some featuring an infinity pool, state-of-the-art home theater, and even a speedboat; or stunning units that face a world-class, championship golf course. One property even has its very own French tree surgeon that tends to the trees every fall to ensure the best viewing possible.
If this is what you’re looking for, finding this type of accommodation is not difficult. If it’s not what you’re looking for, then I’m here to give you good news.
On the flip side (and yes, there is a flip side), there are very affordable, private residences that are also referred to as villas. So you probably won't get your very own in-house chef or butler, but your experience will be an enjoyable one just the same.
