Villa Cantero is an entirely private, luxury Caribbean villa on a spectacular beach that is every bit the tropical paradise we all dream of; lines of arcing palm trees, and pure, turquoise waters gently lapping at fine white sand.

The entire house is spacious and well air-conditioned, so guests will be sure to feel at ease from the moment they arrive. There’s a variety of outdoor spaces that will suit your every whim, whether you want to dine al-fresco under the covered terrace, lounge on the deck next to the plunge pool and waterfall feature, or step through the secure gate onto the beach and dip in with a snorkel to explore the underwater magic of the reef.

Villa Cantero is a luxurious and elegant four-bedroom private villa directly on the beach in St James on the west coast of Barbados, with a lovely wooden sun deck and plunge pool. The two master bedroom suites are located upstairs, and have their own patio terraces that offer breath-taking views all day, but particularly as the sun sets on the West facing coastline. The two bedrooms downstairs are equally special, though a little smaller, and instead of a private patio they have French doors that open out onto the pool area. The comfortable living area has French doors that open to a covered terrace and deck area. Under the covered terrace there is lounging area and a large coral stone table with seating for eight is perfect for al-fresco dining. The villa is gated and fully enclosed with off-road parking.

Sun loungers are provided on the wooden deck area, and a secure beach gate leads out on to a quiet sandy beach where there is swimming and reefs for snorkelling. There is also plunge pool and deck area with a waterfall feature.
Come experience this coastal delight on the laidback island of Barbados, soak up the year-round sunshine, feel the soothing sea breeze, and take time to unwind with the ones that matter most.

All baby equipment can be arranged on request.

What you should know…

  • The pool is not very large as it's only a plunge pool, but who needs a pool when you've got the whole Caribbean Sea on your doorstep!
  • The villa is close to the main west coast road, which can be really helpful for those eager to explore the island on an accessible route

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!

Barbados is a dream holiday destination for kids. With great weather, magnificent & exotic foods and a cheerful island community – you and your family will have the time of your lives.

    Posted by Douglas on 15/06/2018

    Second time at Caprice Villa. Perfect location on the beach. The staff were great! Very accommodating and gave a genuine Bajan feel to the place. Great snorkeling and water sports right out the back gate. Location convenient to the upscale west coast restaurants if you feel the need to go out to dine. Villa is a close walk to some local bars and restaurants or alternatively, take the local bus for a real feel of Bajan transportation. We plan on returning again next year. All arrangements went as planned: airport transfers, car rental, stocking up on groceries including beer and wine (everything was there when we arrived). Local on site management friendly, available and informative.

  • Wonderful Holiday House
