A charming stone pathway leads up to the entrance of Villa Heron Bay which is located in the beautiful Queens Fort enclave in the Parish of Saint James, where palm trees and other indigenous trees make up the backdrop. The villa is surrounded by gorgeous greenery and has electronic gates open up to a quaint courtyard complete with a large tree at the front.

You won’t have to travel far if you want to dip your toes into glistening waters. Outside, the sizeable private pool comes equipped with sun loungers and allows you to swim while taking in the glorious views provided by the surrounding nature. Once you’ve had a few refreshing laps, head to the sheltered veranda that sits poolside and comes complete with a small seating area and table. The garden is flourishing with nature, from glorious green plants and trees to a small pond located beside the hedges.

The living area is wonderfully enhanced by white walls and floors as well as housing a flat screen television, wall art and doors that open up to the garden. You can really appreciate an ‘in and out’ living style at this home. An additional covered veranda is accessible from the living room and contains a stunning marble coffee table, small dining area and comfy seats. There is also an outdoor kitchen top where you can prepare and hold snacks & drinks on.

An elegant dining area makes for special dinner parties with friends & family and opens up to the garden. Guests will adore dining to sounds of birds gently chirping in the background.

All bedrooms are spacious yet cosy with en-suites offering optimal privacy. There is also a two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage located on the grounds, perfect for two families or friendship groups sharing.

Seacat is a local and friendly family run restaurant. The charming and rustic venue boasts a delectable menu consisting of yellowfin tuna, blackened Mahi Mahi, lobster and shrimp. Guests can also choose to eat some familiar fish & chips and crispy onion rings. You will be taken away by how well the fresh seafood is cooked and prepared. And let’s not forget about dessert – the key lime pie is particularly popular here! Seacat possesses a lively atmosphere, benefits from an authentic Bajan menu and serves some very tantalising rum punch. The venue opens from 6.30 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. daily, except for Sundays when it’s closed.

Garrison Savannah is a 35-minute drive away from Villa Heron Bay and is a popular racecourse on the island. If you’re feeling lucky, you never know, you may bet on a winning horse! Situated beside The Barbados Museum & Historical Society, the course is a go-to for locals and tourists alike who wish to get caught up in the excitement of the races.

Cushions are offered for the ultimate comfort during the races and snacks & drinks are available to be purchased from the stalls (don’t miss the Bajan fishcakes). If you’re looking for a beach or Watersports activity alternative, a day at the races will be a day well spent. Just a 12-minute stroll away from Garrison Savannah lies Radisson beach. Here, you can see the beautiful horses gently gliding in the sea in the morning – a once in a lifetime sight!

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!

Take the kids to the famous giant Baobab Tree in Queen’s Park in Bridgetown. Reachable via a 30-minute drive, the park holds one of the biggest trees on the island that takes around fifteen adults to fit their arms around the massive trunk. Kids will feel as if they’re on a fantasy adventure at this enchanting park.

Located near the centre of Bridgetown, when you’ve seen enough of the park, why not head to the town’s theatre, museum or cricket grounds?
