Villa Grand Bois is a wonderful beachfront villa with brilliant views and direct access to one of the best beaches on the west coast.

The villa’s modern interior is paired with black and cream furnishings for a contemporary yet elegant finish. In the living room, the staircase neatly sits behind the sofa. Guests will be able to access the patio directly from the living room, making it feel as if the outside patio and inside living area is all one room.

At Villa Grand Bois, the inside social spaces are mirrored outside, with both boasting living and dining areas. Sun lounges are placed right beside the quaint plunge pool as well as some situated directly overlooking the stunning beach. Outside, guests will discover an attractive mini garden with a stone path leading onto the beach. The path is lined with indigenous shrubs, hedges, flowers and plants, beautifully overflowing at each side.

The kitchen is generously equipped with all of the modern appliances needed and comes complete with a sociable breakfast bar. The bedrooms are decorated neutrally with vivid splashes of tropical colour and all come with cosy king-size beds and en-suite bedrooms. The master suite is a treat as it benefits from its own private balcony that looks over the glorious white sandy beach and turquoise, never-ending Caribbean Sea.

Villa Grand Bois is situated in the prestigious Fitts Village in the Parish of Saint James. Named after the owner of this western stretch of land, Benjamin Thomas Fitt, Fitts Village is predominantly a fishing village with numerous reefs. The neighbouring Paynes Bay Fishing Market is a popular place to purchase fresh fish from.

Only a 20-minute drive away from the villa, you will find the popular Pebbles Beach in Bridgetown, which is widely regarded as a tropical paradise. It is recommended that you visit this spectacular beach early in the morning so that you can see the horses bathing in the turquoise sea. The white sands will make you feel like you’re walking on velvet.

Pebbles Beach is great for snorkeling with a plethora of exotic ocean creations ready to be discovered including turtles, sea anemones and starfish. The beach benefits from shallow, warm waters and big black rocks. This beach has plenty to offer depending on your requirements, from taking in the serene surroundings to learning how to scuba dive.

Earthworks Pottery is a 15-minute drive away from the villa. Earthworks is not only a shop selling some of the best souvenirs you can find on the island, but a working pottery. You’ll be able to witness the pottery pieces being made and decorated first hand and have your pick at the shop afterwards. Most of the vibrant pottery seen here graces various hotels, restaurants and venues across the island.

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

  • Wonderful Caribbean getaway

    on 29/04/2022

    Easy booking process. Prebooking of concierge services was very helpful. Accurate list of facilities and services available for us during our stay. Would highly recommend Olivers Travels to friends.
    Beautifully positioned, and extremely comfortable. The house was a perfect base for our stay.

  • Thoroughly enjoyable

    on 22/10/2018

    We spent a week at this villa and it was perfect for our family of 4 adults and 2 children. We had privacy yet very beautiful view of the sea and sand. The plunge pool by the patio is the perfect place for a refreshing dip. The villa's 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms provided everyone with privacy and own retreat.

  • Luxurious yet cozy

    on 26/07/2018

    Villa Grand Bois is a luxurious yet cozy home, impeccably decorated and situated right on the beach. I adored falling asleep listening to the waves each night. Leandra and Rashida intuited our every need and handled all the business of the house with charm and ease. Rashida's cooking is dangerously good! My nearly month-long trip (!) went off without a hitch and I would return to this property. The beach in front of the house is rocky but there is a sandy access point just a minute's walk away (in front of the wonderful Il Tempio beach restaurant which became our "local"). The snorkelling right off the beach is outstanding.

  • Amazing

    on 23/02/2018

    Absolutely amazing location and Staff!

  • All-in-all, a great experience - thank you to all!!

    on 25/04/2017

    On arrival at Villa Grand Bois we were greeted by the kindest and most helpful staff. Celeste,the villa manager,was welcoming and helpful. Lleandra, the housekeeper, and Rashida, the cook, not only did their designated jobs perfectly but were also very helpful with our questions. One of our party was ill and all 3 ladies did everything to get a doctor to visit the villa to take care of her.

    The villa is well located-right on the beach, close to restaurants and the fun yellow buses come right past the front door.
