What you should know…

  • The chef is included in the price, only the cost of the food needs to be paid extra
  • Two of the rooms are located in the guest house across the garden, while it is perfect to gain privacy, it needs to be considered when traveling with children

When visiting Barbados, the first thing you are sure to notice are the gorgeous and renowned flat white sand beaches. On the west coast of Barbados, miles of coral shore beaches and fine white sands stretch along a hypnotising turquoise sea. The West Coast of Barbados is also fringed with countless breath-taking Coral Reefs to provide excellent snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities. The South Coast also offers something for everyone, and is a curious mixture of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Here you can swim in calm waters, snorkel over the inshore reefs and tidal pools, and at the southernmost tip of the island, you can windsurf.

The Rose of Sharon is conveniently located only over a mile south of Holetown, having easy access to a great choice of amenities. Whether you visit the centre to shop for local arts and crafts or to experience the local nightlife at First and Second streets – where the buzz is at –, there is plenty to see and do!

If you’ve ticked both of these plans out of your checklist, then the Holetown beach is a must-see! After an afternoon swimming in the sparkling turquoise waters, a dinner at the beachfront restaurant The Tides is highly recommended, where you can enjoy the best lobster tail in Barbados!

If you are lucky enough to stay in the Rose of Sharon during the month of February, make sure to experience the Holetown Festival, which commemorates the anniversary of the first settlement of Barbados at Holetown in February 1627. It is one of the biggest festivities of the area, and it showcases from concerts, to exhibitions to street parades. It can’t be missed!

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 is a great place for travelling with children, the locals are incredibly friendly and accommodating and there is plenty to do - from safe, crystal clear beaches to wildlife parks and unique local experiences. When it comes to beaches, there’s no shortage on the island, but when travelling with mini-mes it is vital the beaches are family-friendly, Mullins Bay, Bathsheba and Paynes Bay are the most popular beaches for families.

Rose of Sharon boasts an inmense lawn, which gives kids plenty of space to play and run around. The swimming pool isn't fenced, so make sure you look after the little ones!

  • Great Family Vacation

    Posted by Judith on 19/01/2019

    We were three generations ranging in age from 18-84 and the staff catered to everyone creating a special experience for each of us!! While the villa is older, it is comfortable and well maintained, our onsite concierge was attentive, making great suggestions and booking great experiences. Can’t wait to return!!

  • It was everything we expected and more and made great by the staff.

    Posted by Sonia on 05/11/2016

    We felt like we really got feel about life and the foods of Barbados. We had a coupe of people with diet restrictions and we were well taken care of that and would never have happened if we were staying at a hotel.

  • Perfect in every way!

    Posted by Diana on 01/04/2016

    Three generation family reunion can be somewhat stressful for some but in our case, the grandmother, it exceeded all my expectations! The Rose of Sharon Villa was our beautiful home from March 17 to March 27. Our rooms were very spacious even with the added cots in several plus having the ensuites in each room made our holiday stress less. The pool and garden were lovey for the children to run and play. We had wonderful staff led by Gail who kept our bellies full and Crystal who did the laundry. We rented 3 paddle boards which were used nearly every day from the Sandy Lane beach club. We enjoyed having a libation on the beach while others drank tea gazing out at the beautiful setting sun. We enjoyed the markets very much and bought many locally made souvenirs to bring home. We did also do some sight seeing of Barbados and ate in several excellent restaurants. Each day was filled with delight and much happiness. We all had a wonderful holiday, perfect in every way. Thank you everyone.
