Pool Quirky Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach All Bedrooms En-Suite

A beautiful beachside villa in Barbados’ upmarket Saint James area, Seawards enjoys an excellent west coast location between Holetown and Bridgetown. With its own cook and housekeeper ready to enhance your stay, this three-bedroom holiday home provides a wonderful welcome to the incredible Caribbean island.

Seawards could hardly be closer to the ocean, with the tranquil beach at Fitts Village just steps away from the house. A charming garden offers an irresistible place to relax at any time of day, with a dining area on the patio, sun loungers and a plunge pool. The many palm trees in and around the garden offer shade and add to a secluded feel.

Inside the house you have a light and airy seating area with direct access to the gardens, where a ceiling fan keeps things cool and comfortable. Your kitchen is well equipped with all the things you could need, including an oven, hob, microwave and dishwasher, and the dining area is great for formal or informal gatherings. Flat screen televisions and Wi-Fi offer entertainment whenever you want it at Seawards, and the main lounge is equipped with plenty of comfy seating when you feel like taking five.

All of the three bedrooms are air-conditioned and have their own en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom features a queen-size bed, while the other two can be used as either king or twin rooms. An elevated balcony terrace delivers an enchanting view of the calm blue sea.

This immaculate beachfront villa enjoys a location that is both scenic and convenient. Positioned midway between two of the most exciting towns on the western coast, there’s a ton of things to do and see. Stunning beaches are dotted along the coast, and this sought-after area offers some of the finest dining, entertainment and shopping you’ll find on the island. Head inland and you’ll discover even more outstanding natural beauty, with nature reserves, parks and forests you don’t want to miss.

On the upscale west coast of Barbados, the Saint James parish is known with good reason as the island’s ‘platinum coast’. Aside from being a celebrity hangout, the area is famed for its beautiful white sand beaches, various golf courses and excellent dining options, as well as luxury brand shopping.

One of the area’s main towns, Holetown, is a good place to get acquainted with what Saint James has to offer. The Limegrove Lifestyle Centre brings shopping and entertainment together, with dozens of high-end stores, a multi-screen cinema and regular live events, from music concerts to art shows and craft fairs, while colourful Chattel village sets its shops in scenic tropical gardens.

The beachfront walks are another highlight, and particularly spectacular if you happen to be there at sunset. Eateries like Zaccios and Tides occupy some of the prime ocean-view locations, and with views like those, chances are you will want to try them out.

Holetown’s big annual event comes around each February – the Holetown Festival is a commemoration of the first settlement on the island in 1627. It’s a broad and lively celebration, encompassing everything from fashion shows and beauty contests to vintage car parades, sporting events and a Police Tattoo, and it’s a great opportunity to sample Bajan delights like macaroni pie and Barbados rum.

The town is also a centre for nightlife, concentrated mainly on Holetown’s First and Second Streets. Cool hangouts like the Red Door Lounge prove that Barbadians know how to party, and are very happy for you to join them. Head south of the town and a string of stunning beaches like Sandy Lane and Payne’s Bay await you, and it won’t be long until you find yourself in Bridgetown – the historic capital city is just 11km from Holetown.

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!

Seawards is a fantastic choice for families, offering everyone their own special place by the beach. Its three bedrooms include two that can be used as twin rooms, so you have lots of flexibility, and the kids can enjoy sharing with a brother, sister or friend.

There’s a lovely garden and pool, and days out can be filled with adventures. With Bridgetown a short drive away, you have all the attractions of the big city nearby. Look out for the Jolly Roger pirate ship for a swashbuckling cruise you can enjoy together, and the Atlantis submarine which takes a voyage into the deep both day and night.

The glorious west coast has numerous inviting beaches to chill on when you want a break. Batts Rock and Paradise are two of the closest to your villa, with a children’s playground, picnic area and calm seas suitable for swimming. Look out for the cheeky green monkeys who hang out in the woods behind Batts Rock.

In Holetown, there’s more entertainment with a multi-screen cinema and often live music at venues around town. They will also love the easy-going dining at the beachfront restaurants and shopping (or window-shopping) at malls like Limegrove and Chattel. And because Barbados is best enjoyed on the water as well as the land, a turtle-spotting trip in one of Holetown’s glass-bottomed boats is bound to be a hit too.

Reviews

  • Last minute; no problem

    on 30/12/2021

    We had a very last minute idea to go somewhere warm over the holiday this December 2021. Louise and her team at Oliver's found us a fantastic villa in Barbados in very short order. The trip was great; warm sun, beautiful beaches and ocean and great food. We highly recommend it!

    The location was fantastic. The villa is very spacious and well appointed. The staff at the villa were excellent. We really enjoyed a very relaxing stay.

  • Very Comfortable

    on 28/03/2018

    Seawards is a very comfortable home, located right on the beach. It is in a great location with restaurants and a grocery store just minutes away. Located between Holetown and Bridgetown it is easy to rent a car and travel around the island. Beautiful sunsets and nice back porch and back yard with a plunge pool.

  • Everything was wonderful

    on 28/01/2018

    The villa was roomy, beautiful and spotless. We loved the location. We explored the entire island and we love it! The scenery is amazing. Dawn was incredible. She was so accommodating. Her energy and spirit shined through. Keep her forever! We will return to your beautiful island! Thanks for all of your help.

  • Impressive villa

    on 13/04/2017

    We had a fabulous time, we will be back to this beautiful island again as soon as possible. We are definitely going to stay at Seawards, great location and great value.
