Villa Daiana is a unique beach-front home which is filled with such light, bright tones and airy coastal ease that it is sure to make guests smile! The zingy, citrus palette and sixties touch give Villa Daiana oodles of character.

Set over two storeys, with three chic bedrooms, this home is the quintessential Caribbean bolthole, offering an easy, breezy informality, cooling sea breezes and the beach just a stroll away past the swaying palms at the end of the garden.

Outdoor living is executed at its finest, with a terracotta patio, funky striped loungers and brick-built barbecue leading to luscious green lawns with elegant parasols shading the refined dining sets, perfect for an afternoon tea or cocktail by sunset!

The dining pirate seats six and in classic local style features an outdoor lounge for that decadent touch, set under the sloping exposed mahogany porch.

When the Caribbean heat ramps up, the plunge pool will hit the right note. The open plan living spaces are unfussy yet home-like, with a simple yet luxurious dazzling white lounge set and dining area, whilst the kitchen is a glossy tangerine that pops against the steely, industrial charcoals and granite. In keeping with the tropical pops of colour, the upper terrace offers vivid lime green loungers under canary yellow umbrellas from which to enjoy sparkling sea views.

The three bedrooms are cool and restorative, graceful spaces, imbibing hints of colonial elegance, exposed dark-stain mahogany, four poster bed in the Master and hand-painted oriental screen in another.

This vibrant home is a radiant example of low-key luxury and sea-side pared down glamour; flamboyant colours for a playful touch and the iconic ‘platinum coast’ just a few steps away.

What you should know…

  • One of the bedrooms is situated in a separate cottage - ideal for grandparents or a couple looking for some additional privacy from the rest of the group
  • The pool is just a plunge pool and so is not suited for length swimming
  • Please note that you will need to select 4 guests should you wish to have access to both bedrooms. Those selecting fewer guests will only have access to a prorated number of bedrooms based on 2 guests per room.

Villa Daiana is on the beach front at the historic town of Holetown, on the spectacular west coast of Barbados. The first English settlers landed at Holetown in 1627; today this bustling haven offers duty free shopping centres, green spaces, a huge array of international cuisine and mellow reefs ideal for snorkelling.

Holetown also offers a slice of local Bajan life. The Chattel village is a melting pot of artisans, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses provide a striking contrast to the colonial residences with their dazzling white coral facades and open verandas; the former are vividly coloured with fancy gables and gingerbread fretwork. The Chattel houses date back to plantation days; the small wooden shacks were designed to be movable, yet this didn’t limit their decorative charm; finished in candy pinks and pistachio greens with pretty shutters and sloping roofs.

The exclusive West Coast of Barbados, also known as the “platinum coast” for its pristine beaches and turquoise waters. Despite this region being developed with high-end hotels and stately private residences to an international jet-set, its coast remains one of the most beautiful Barbados has to offer. With the recent development of extensive boardwalks, visitors can enjoy spectacular sunset strolls with the glittering sea as their companion.

The west coast offers everything from rum cocktails at the bar to Thai cuisine or local Bajan fare. A culinary experience here takes influences from African, Caribbean, West Indian and European gastronomy for something a little unique. Known for its rum tradition, started circa 370 years ago, the island is brimming with tours of the world’s oldest rum.

Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element, from sailing to snorkelling, jet-skiing to kite-surfing, Barbados has it all. One of the greatest delights of this island is boarding the sparkling waters for a catamaran cruise, along with a decadent buffet meal and drinks.

St Nicholas Abbey is a magical, mystical spot, in the hills of St. Peter, offering over 400 acres of lush tropical overgrowth, impeccably manicured gardens, mahogany forests and undulating sugar cane fields.

Barbados is a place of contrasts, from movie-star hedonism to cane-cutting village life and artisanal fare; from fishing villages to dramatic, rugged Atlantic coastlines - visitors will enjoy a vivacious diversity within a very accessibly-sized island. A unique blend of vibrant, local life and colonial-influenced afternoon teas alongside cricket matches on the green!

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 offers so much for family travellers. At only 21 miles by 14 miles, with 60 miles of pristine coastline, days at the beach as a family are the centre of a Bajan holiday. Holetown offers so much for the family, from Folkestone Marine and Visitors Centre, to fascinating glass bottom boat rides. The mellow waters offer excellent snorkelling conditions for beginners.

From intriguing caves, to mystical gardens, from vibrant street-fare to formal polo matches - genteel cricket matches and colourful street crafts, Barbados offers a unique experience for youngsters which will captivate small imaginations for years to come.

Villa Daiana, on the west coast, offers proximity to some of the most child friendly beaches. Mullins Beach is a good option for kids with tranquil seas and long sandy stretches for sand-castle building whilst adults will enjoy rum punch from their rented parasols or older kids will indulge in water sports.

Harrison’s Cave offers a journey beneath the limestone surface that makes up much of the island - a mysterious 30 minute underground guided train trip taking in crystallised formations, intricate streams and awe-inspiring caverns. From collecting shells at the luscious Bathsheba Park, to a unique dining expense for the island’s traditional Friday night live music and fresh-off-the-docks flying fish, Barbados offers a vibrant, sensory experience for children.

Barbados offers a mystical experience for youngsters; one of the island’s traditions of swimming horses at dawn will leave exquisite memories for kids to cherish, and wildlife from tortoises to parrots to brocket deer will intrigue youngsters.

For older kids, Bridgetown offers several tours of intriguing shipwrecks, tropical fish and coral formations. Or, a combination of 4x4 jeep tour through tropical forest followed by a leisurely catamaran trip for a full family day out, finished up with sumptuous buffet at the end of the day.

  • 10 Days of Relaxation

    Posted by Keating Family on 21/07/2017

    We have really enjoyed our 10 days of relaxation and exploration! Thank you to the owners for sharing your little piece of paradise and thanks to Angela and Ann for looking after us. "Bumblefoot," your resident Lesser Antillean Bullfinch, entertained us as did the nightly chorus of whistling frogs. Snorkeling highlights were: A flying gurnard, octopus, spotted scorpionfish, golden spotted eel, 1 lion fish (sadly an introduced species) and large school of blue tang. We appreciated having bird and fish I.D. books in your library! We saw 21 species of birds, including the 2 hummingbirds. The various botanical gardens were just fantastic! Barbados has so much to offer. THANK YOU!
