Barbados has a world-class reputation for providing the more beautiful things in life, and when choosing to rent a villa, you will not be disappointed.
Villas are nestled away in immaculate landscaped tropical gardens, giving the ultimate in privacy and security. You can relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the gardens as you lounge around the private swimming pool. Villas are built with entertaining in mind, and so you will find plenty of outdoor decks and patios for dining and living.
Inside the villa, you will find an exceptional interior design with every attention to detail paid to the finishes. You will see state of the art entertainment systems such as surround sound stereo, DVD, and satellite TV. The entire property will benefit from air conditioning, and there will be a fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances such as dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven, and hob.
These properties usually come with a compliment of staff such as cook, maid, gardener, pool attendant and security; therefore your every need is addressed.
Beach Houses provide the solitude and privacy of staying in a luxury villa, but can be quite basic, this is due to their location, and that sea spray eats away at electrical appliances and furnishings. However, the beauty of your view and tranquility of being so close to the Ocean make up for what you lack in luxury.
Beach Houses are simply furnished, clean and comfortable. The majority of beach houses to rent are found on the East coast of Barbados where the scenery of breathtaking and you will not believe that your view is real.
There are also many private Guest Houses on the market for vacation rentals, these provide reasonable accommodation for families and come equipped with fully fitted kitchens, air conditioning and some have private swimming pools. They are reasonably priced and provide you with a home from home in Barbados.
There are many condominiums developments in Barbados, where you can rent either a villa or apartment within a complex. The complex will have communal swimming pools and sporting facilities such as golf and tennis on site. Choosing this kind of accommodation gives the flexibility of self-catering while providing the community atmosphere of staying in a hotel.
Self-catering apartment hotels ideally suit couples that don’t want too much space but would like superior interior decoration and all the modern conveniences such as satellite TV and DVD player. In these apartments, you can expect large patios for outside dining and plunge pools or Jacuzzi’s for your private use.
Apartments suit the younger crowd who would rather spend their money on enjoying Barbados’ vibrant party scene and are happy to have a clean and comfortable place to sleep. You can get a suitable one bedroom apartment on the south coast, which is party central for around $70 US per night.
There are also some necessary Family-Owned Apartment Rentals, which again suit younger individuals. Their properties still come with a fully equipped kitchen and a lounge/bedroom.
Whatever your requirements, Barbados has many types of vacation rentals to suit you.
