Godings villa is an exceptionally designed gated holiday home in the parish of St Peter, Barbados. The home benefits from a clean and modern design both inside and out that utilises some of the island’s most exquisite materials.

Some of the home’s most exciting features include an in-house gym, a glass-walled study and a home cinema. You’ll definitely be able to enjoy this beautiful island without even leaving your home. The living and dining room sit adjacent to each other in a stunning open plan design. The area is designed in neutral colours with limestone floors and contains striking pieces from designers Maxalto, Christian Liaigre and Ralph Lauren.

The dining room boasts a grand Whetstone Oak table decorated with white roses and elegant tableware. This is the perfect space for upscale dinner parties. Guests can enter the first floor via an impressive double staircase. Upstairs, a number of the bedrooms feature four-poster beds and Ralph Lauren bed stools. All of the bedrooms incorporate a walk-in dressing room, lovely terrace and en-suite bathrooms embellished with attractive mosaic tiles.

Godings sits on 1.2 acres of landscaped gardens that are magnificently enhanced with palm trees, shrubs and an immaculately kept lawn. The gardens contain two dining areas where guests can savour eating al fresco and a path that leads straight onto the beach. Morning walks on the beach will become your regular wake up call. A private mosaic-lined pool lies in the garden and allows you to swim while taking in awe-inspiring views of the horizon.

While staying at Godings, your house manager will be on call to help you get the best out of your holiday. Fine dining experiences, thrilling water sports activities and educational day trips can all be arranged efficiently by your house manager who is familiar with the island’s leading activities and attractions.

While staying on Barbados’ stunning coast, it would be a crime not to sample some of the island’s fresh sea cuisine. Six Men’s Fish Market is located nearby and is a hot spot where locals and tourists purchase their tasty catch of the day. Serving everything from tuna, marlin, flying fish and dolphin, the market will definitely serve up something new for you to try.

On Fridays, the market transforms into the party place to be. A rum shop that sits beside the market blasts out music and serves beverages.

Arlington House is another close by attraction that is certainly worth a visit. The house is a museum set over three storeys that centres on local and slave history. Arlington is an eighteenth-century building that has been restored to provide visitors with an interactive experience. A friendly member of staff will guide you through the museum, explaining how the interactive features work and how to use them. There’s also plenty of audio and film information as well as striking displays to help you journey into Bajan history.

For a wonderful dining experience, head to Port St Charles Yacht Club, a restaurant that looks out onto the mesmerising west coast of Barbados.

Offering a plethora of international dishes, guests will find something to suit their fancy, even if it means trying something that they’ve never heard of before. After your meal, head onto the venue’s deck and lounge in the sunshine while sipping on a delicious cocktail or two.

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!

    Posted by Yvonne on 01/01/2019

    Utterly stunning modern contemporary villa - the space & the views are breath-taking. I loved the seaviews from the bedrooms & particularly loved the master en-suite- what a bath tub! This villa epitomises caribbean beachfront luxury.

  • Exquisite

    Posted by Alberdi on 27/03/2018

    All the family loved the villa. The décor is exquisite and its real indoor outdoor living which we wanted. There is some coral in the sea but we found wonderful swimming spots to either side.
