Cou Cou Apartment is a luxury beachfront home in a condominium by Reeds Bay. This apartment is on the ground floor at the northern end of the building, which offers direct access to the beach and the garden.

This two bedroom apartment is the perfect place to call home as you explore the beautiful country of Barbados as it’s a home built with the best of Barbados in mind. 

Seek respite from the sun and relax inside this spacious and open plan home, whether you are enjoying a meal at the breakfast bar or nestled up with a good book on one of the cosy couches you will be able to live your best life on holiday. The modern kitchen has everything you need to prepare a delicious feast, or if you don’t want to lift a finger the cook/housekeeper can prepare two meals a day for you, either breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner. After all, this is a holiday. 

After a busy day relaxing by the beach or exploring the island, rest your dreary soul in one of the two bedrooms, each of which have air conditioning so you can have a peaceful, cool slumber. The rooms also feature en-suites, so you can live the life of luxury - marble countertops and all.  

Of course, the outside of the home takes full advantage of the tropical weather with a dining terrace to seat six as well as a spa pool surrounded by tropical foliage. Fancy a refreshing drink? There’s a wet bar and a bar fridge, so you’re well and truly covered.

Barbados is an ideal place to visit anytime, with a warm and sunny climate all year round. It averages over 3,000 hours of sunshine each year, and it is treated to prevailing northeast trade winds that create a light breeze, so it’s rarely unbearably hot. 

If you are heading to this beautiful spot, you want a home away from home that is going to offer you two things; a beach within walking distance and a villa that is near enough to other activities and towns. Villa Cou Cou offers both of these, with access to Reeds Bay literally at your front door. Speightstown and Holetown are within 3 miles, so restaurants, bars, museums and malls are within a short distance. 

There are, of course, many stunning beaches in Barbados that you owe it to yourself to experience. Some of the most popular beaches in Barbados include Mullins Beach, Gibbes Beach, Accra Beach and Paynes Bay. Many of these beaches offer facilities such as changing rooms, bathrooms, restaurants and beach bars, so you can stay on the beach long after the sun goes down.

This villa is located by Reeds Bay, a beautiful bay near Lower Carlton on the West Coast of Barbados, there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance, as well as a fruit and vegetable shop.

About the Island & Getting There

About Barbados

At first glance you could be mistaken for thinking that Barbados is purely a beach holiday destination, but you're urged to reconsider this common belief. The island of Barbados is peppered with astonishing landscapes (both coastal and inland), enchanting locals, sublime cuisine, intriguing rums, fascinating wildlife, symbolic architecture and a selection of striking holiday villas.

Delve deep into the history of the island and start your holiday by visiting Sunbury Plantation House & Museum. This former plantation was built in 1660's and the premises are scattered with antiquities that delicately detail a recent history of Barbados. St. Nicholas Abbey also provides an insightful representation of Sugarcane production, Bajan artefacts and a wonderful observation point at Cherry Tree Hill. If you’re keen to visit one of the oldest Parliamentary buildings within the Commonwealth and appreciate the democratic legacy of Barbados, drop by The Parliament Buildings. This neo-gothic congress can be found in Bridgetown and act as a representation of Barbados’s Independence. There is so much history present throughout the island and as a result, Bridgetown and its Garrison has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, which the locals are very proud of.

Great efforts have been made to persevere the natural beauty of Barbados, so if you’re drawn to the exploration of National Parks and multicoloured gardens, it won’t take you long to realise that Barbados is a haven for such paradises! Within the Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Farley Hill National Park, Flower Forest, Hunte's Gardens and Welchman Hall Gully - visitors, and Botanist alike, will be lost for hours admiring these astonishing botanical parklands. Keep an eye out for the Dwarf Poinciana, or Peacock Flower…it’s the national flower of Barbados.

Bajan’s take their food very seriously! If you and your fellow travellers are enticed by the gastronomic aspect of holidaying, we believe you’ve selected the right island. With every aspect of cookery mastered; from pickling to freshly prepared dishes, sweet & savoury, fragrant & spicy and of course, the bountiful choice of seafood. Check out the food stalls in Paynes Bay Church – where vendors exhibit locally made dishes & street food that will scintillate the taste buds. At the end of every working week, locals and tourists both flock to Oistins, for 'Fish Fry Day'. This is a must for those who haven’t undergone the experience! The evening starts with barbecues and then ascends into a joyful party. This caps off a busy few days of work for locals as well as the 'strains' associated with serious holidaying.

Barbados is of course iconic for its Beaches & Rum…so why not bring them together? You will have to go out of your way not to be able to find a beach bar along the west coast of the island, as well as the countless Rum Shops. Yes, you’ve read correctly, Rum Shops! These small and locally run businesses embrace the Bajan spice of life, in liquid form. Very delicious! If you’re searching for something a little more special, take a trip to the east coast and visit Sand Dunes Bar and Restaurant at Windy Hill, for an unforgettable experience.

Barbados is a distinct and striking part of the Caribbean. It’s a great fit for all types of travellers, as the island really does have it all. For a little more information about this delightful island, check out our guide to a remarkable stay!

  • We had a perfect vacation

    Posted by Damschroder Family on 10/02/2018

    Everything and everyone was just a delight! It is a lovely apartment with every possible amenity for a visitor's comfort. Gillian is the crown jewel of Cou Cou.. she is a good and kind human who certainly is an excellent cook and so very good at pampering guests! Everyone was exceptionally kind, helpful and delightfully friendly. All staff were a pleasure to speak with and they do a grand job of maintaining the property! Missing our dinners on the porch, the sound of the tree frogs, the soft breeze and ocean waves..

  • Good Times

    Posted by Welsh Party on 17/10/2017

    Gillian the cook and housekeeper was fabulous! The snorkel trip on Good Times Too was our favourite, definitely a must!

  • A Place in Paradise

    Posted by Moore & Mills Party on 12/06/2016

    We thoroughly enjoyed Cou Cou Apartment. We traveled with another couple and this unit was perfect size and fit for the four of us. The unit is well appointed, well decorated, has wifi, and an outdoor seating area (for dinner and drinks and watching the sunset) and a nice soaking pool for cooling off and watching flying fish skip across the sea. The beach was quiet and clean and perfect for snorkeling and kayaking, the lounge chairs and umbrellas (set up just for you) were quite inviting. Gillian our housekeeper and cook was so friendly and inviting, we just loved her.. and her Rum Punch was the best on the Island. The other staff, Mark, Mona Lisa and others we all so friendly and helpful, we will absolutely go back some day.
