I have always believed that life is too short to skimp on the finer things in life. Go out and live, and never second-guess when presented a few days of pleasure. This is why I love taking my vacations seriously. And when I say seriously, I mean I like staying only at the best villas when I visit the Caribbean (my favorite summer destination!).
Today, I will talk about all my favorite luxury villa rentals in Barbados, the island of pink sand at sunrise.
Footprints, The Garden
If you want to experience only the best of Barbados, stay at Footprints, a beachfront villa on Alleynes Bay Beach. It’s an open house that lets in the easy summer breeze of the ocean and the sand, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and several balconies and terraces. Calm your mind and soul as you listen to the waves along the Platinum Coast of Barbados and sip your coffee at the al fresco-dining pavilion with a mesmerizing view of the beach. The villa is made of natural wood floors and neutral palettes that maintain that serene atmosphere.
It also has a lounge area, an infinity pool, a chaise lounge on the lawn, and fitness and media rooms. The place is a haven for people who are looking for a quiet, peaceful time. You don’t even have to worry about what to eat since you also have the excellent service of a chef, butler, and housekeepers.
Other beaches surround the villa as well, such as Reeds Bay and Sandy Lane Beach. You can also play golf at the Royal Westmoreland Golf Course and the Sandy Lane Country Club.
Atelier House, St. James
Having only been completed in 2012, Atelier House is one of the best contemporary villas in Barbados. It’s located just on the West Coast of Barbados and is within half an acre of beautiful tropical gardens, so you see all this amazing view of the treetops and the beach when you look out from the outdoor spaces. Watch the sun set over the ocean and feel your worries leave you behind.
The House is simply phenomenal with its minimal furnishings and unbelievable interior detail. It has four bedrooms, with the master bedroom coming with a balcony and two of the bedrooms having an en suite bathroom. Your service includes a cook to prepare your meals, available six days a week.
Five minutes away is the surreal sparkling waters and white, fine sand of the beach.
Caprice, Reed’s Bay
Sit back and relax on Caprice’s private wooden terrace as you watch the sun rise from the beautiful ocean every morning while sipping your coffee or tea. Isn’t that such a nice idea? Turn it into reality and book this villa now. Yes, now.
Set right on the beach, this Colonial-style villa includes a covered patio, a private gate leading to the beach, a terrace with a private pool that lights up at night, a gorgeous living room sticking to a neutral, beige palette, and a veranda that features a view of the garden and the ocean. The kitchen is complete with all the equipment you need for cooking, and it’s also designed so beautifully that you will really be excited about cooking.
Caprice has four bedrooms, with two of them featuring private balconies. All of the rooms are air-conditioned and have en suite bathrooms.
If you want to work on your tan, simply walk out to the beach and have fun swimming or snorkeling in the clear, blue waters of the Caribbean.
