Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach All Bedrooms En-Suite

Tucked away at the end of Gibbs Bay, on the West Coast of Barbados, we find Emerald Beach, a complex of six luxury villas spread on over an acre of lush gardens. In Aspicia, you can indulge yourself with views of the sparkling Caribbean Sea and that summer breeze, which in this place, runs all year round.

This two-level home counts with three spacious double bedrooms. The décor throughout is mellow and homey, with breezy and open rooms throughout, boasting a split-level living room and dining room. On the same level as the dining area, you will find a fully equipped kitchen. You can also choose not to use it, however, since a cook is available to cook meals for the guests. The ultimate holiday experience!

There are three bedrooms, all beautifully decorated. The master bedroom is the only one located in the ground floor, and it features a double bed, luxury en-suite and an outdoor terrace. The two bedrooms upstairs also count with large double beds and en-suite bathrooms, besides their own private balcony. Whichever room you pick, stunning sea views are guaranteed!

Moving outside you will discover a covered outdoor dining area, which makes for a perfect evening meal overlooking the sea! And after that, why not enjoy a drink or two in the comfy outdoor sofas? You are never too far from the freshwater swimming pool, exclusive for Emerald Beach residents. So feel free to take a cheeky swim at any time!

When visiting Barbados, the first thing you are sure to notice are the gorgeous and renowned flat white sand beaches. On the west coast of Barbados, miles of coral shore beaches and fine white sands stretch along a hypnotising turquoise sea. The West Coast of Barbados is also fringed with countless breath-taking Coral Reefs to provide excellent snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities. The South Coast also offers something for everyone and is a curious mixture of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Here you can swim in calm waters, snorkel over the inshore reefs and tidal pools, and at the southernmost tip of the island, you can windsurf.

The villa is located on the West Coast of the island, which is not only a great area to enjoy the sea, but it also offers the best variety of activities and attractions on the island. Holetown is only 6 km away from the holiday home, so a visit to Barbados’ oldest settlement is a must! The town has several attractions of interest. Chattel Village is a combination of quaint and colourful shops with great local products. The picturesque town also includes a variety of bars, restaurants and good snorkelling spots!

Inland Barbados is delightful to explore, enchantingly quiet and rural, there are endless fields of sugar cane dotted with old plantation houses. Within less than 30 minutes driving you can go wildlife spotting at Welchman Hall Gully. This Tropical Forest Reserve is home to wild monkeys and majestic rainforest trees. A visit to this tropical hideaway makes a great day out with the family!

While on Barbados, a taste of the island’s rum is a must! The isle has been producing rum for over 350 years, and it is recognised internationally for its quality. Many tours and taster sessions are available at the local distilleries.

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!

Reviews

  • WE LOVE BARBADOS!

    Posted by Linda & Richard on 11/11/2017

    Our first visit to Emerald Beach 5 but our 10th visit to Barbados. Eudelle and Celine were two of the best and happiest people that looked after us. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Eudelle surprised us with one of her marvellous vanilla cheesecakes and earlier on in the holiday made us her chocolate mousse cake and cheese souffle, all were delicious. The happiness of them both radiated around the villa and although we went out a lot touring different parts of Barbados, when we arrived back we always had such a lovely welcome from these two lovely ladies. We will be back to this villa, the setting is beautiful.

  • Once in a lifetime vacation

    Posted by Rose & Philip on 18/10/2017

    We had a wonderful once in a lifetime vacation. Thank you so much for an experience we will never forget.

    p.s The ladies could not have done a better job. They are remarkable!

  • A wonderful week

    Posted by Straker Family on 30/01/2017

    This week has been so wonderful. Eudelle and Saileen made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. The great meals we had every day made us feel like we were at a 5-star restaurant.
