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

Imagine laying by the pool, looking out right over the ocean, the waves lapping on the beach as the sun reflects on your private pool - dreamy, right? That’s what’s in store for guests of Villa Half Moon, a unique customer designed Villa that’s situated on a ridge overlooking the West coast of Barbados - this location does mean that whole the Villa is overlooking the ocean it does not have direct access to the beach, access is a short drive away. 

The Villa boasts a half moon crescent shape which offers optimal enjoyment of the view from all rooms on the house. It features ivy covered Italian style columns and arches, adding an extra element of luxury and opulence. 

As you enter the home through the central entryway you’re lead into the open plan living room, which of course overlooks the garden, the infinity pool and the ocean. This is the ideal place to nestle up in the morning with a fresh juice and coffee as you plan your day, and it’s even more stunning come night time as the sun sets over the ocean.  

The rest of the rooms are dotted around the Villa, the master bedroom is located at the northern tip of the crescent, opening on to a small terrace that has access to the pool deck. The en-suite has a soaking sub and an open air shower - no shower you’ve ever had will be as glorious as this one. Two of the other bedrooms are also in the northern curve, each with an en-suite bathroom and an open air shower. If travelling with children it’s ideal to note the master bedroom can inter-connect with one of the other rooms in this curve.

The fourth bedroom and en-suite are in the southern curve, along with an open plan dining room, indoor garden and a large, well-equipped kitchen. Having the option to create feasts filled with local specialities adds to the allure, and who doesn’t want to enjoy a local meal while overlooking the ocean?

The outdoors area is incredibly dreamy, taking full advantage of the unobstructed view. Whether you’re swimming in the pool, or topping up your tan on the sun loungers that surround the pool; there’s something for everyone.

Barbados is a dream - crystal clear oceans, sandy beaches that go on for miles and plenty of unspoilt, natural wonders to explore and appreciate. What’s more, the weather is equally as dream-like, with temperatures that are not unbearably hot thanks to the sea breeze you can feel the sun on your face.

It goes without saying that many of your vacation days will be spent on the beach, sipping your toes in the waters and catching some sun. Some of the most popular, must visit 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.

There is, of course, plenty more to see and do than beaches. Head inland and explore a plantation, immersing yourself in the culture that is so rich in Barbados. You can also wander around the main centre Bridgetown, which is a UNESCO world site and the second largest town, Speightstown, the second largest centre is a quaint spot with architecture dating back to the early settlement of Barbados and is also well worth a visit. 

A trip to Barbados isn’t complete without some rum - for which Barbados is internationally recognised for - and also the local delicacy, flying fish. 

All of these spots are close to the Villa, which is located This Villa is located on a ridge overlooking the West Coast of Barbados and the sparkling Caribbean Sea. It’s an ideal location, close to beach bars, restaurants and Shawn’s fruit and vegetable shop so you can pick up fresh essentials.

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 hope we can return!

    on 08/07/2018

    We had an absolutely amazing stay! The house was perfect for our family and the view is stunning. The pool was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the house. From tours around the island, snorkel trips with turtles and shipwrecks and days spent at the beach bar watching the World Cup, our holiday was all we could ask for and more. The staff made the house feel like home and we will miss them just as much as the house. Thank you for having us and we hope we can return!

  • Lovely holiday option for a group of friends

    on 29/05/2017

    Annual Ladies Group (8 Ladies) week in Barbados and we thought we would try a villa instead of a resort - great decision! The villa is lovely. You definitely require a car. Very unique layout but easy to navigate and lots of quiet areas for everyone to enjoy. The staff was wonderful. Pam the cook was fantastic and catered to everyone's likes/dislikes. Melissa and Marguerite kept everything spotless and Marguerite even did our laundry! The villa is up on a hill midway between Holetown and Speightstown. Beach privileges at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion where we spent two lovely afternoons were an added bonus. The rest of the time we spent around the pool and loved every moment. The loungers were comfortable, we brought our own floaties. We chose to have the staff do lunch and dinner (you can choose 2 consecutive meal preparations/day) and it was an excellent choice. Everything Pam made was delicious. The beds were all comfortable. The outdoor showers were amazing and private. The kitchen was well-stocked. There is a 12-Cup coffee maker that we used every morning. The grocery store is 10-15 minutes drive. Groceries are ridiculously expensive in Barbados so we had Pam cook local dishes for us and she did not disappoint - We even had roti one day for lunch! This is a lovely holiday option for a group of friends, a large family or a group of 4 couples.
