Overview

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

Imagine waking up to the ocean breeze rustling through the garden, the smell of freshly breakfast wafting in your room and the morning sun streaming in your window. As you finally come round, the hardest decision you are tasked with is beach day, or pool day? That is what a holiday in Barbados is like, long walks on the beach, stunning sunsets and a lot of sun.

Make the most of this beautiful country at Green Monkey House, a four bedroom villa that is situated in a cul-de-sac just 200 yards from Gibbes Bay, St Peters. This villa is a charming home away from home that has plenty of homely touches to help you settle in and relax.

The four bedrooms are all spacious and offer lovely natural light. Each room offers plenty of storage, so the Barbados wardrobe can be ready to go at a moment’s notice. There are also four bathrooms at this villa, so forget arguing over who gets a shower first.

The living spaces are all open plan, letting the sun and breeze flow through the home from the living room to the kitchen and dining room. While the kitchen is well-equipped and a decent size, you will rarely have to lift a finger as the house cook prepares breakfast, lunch and dinner – there’s even a housekeeper. This is, after all, the life of luxury. 

All of this is set amidst a lush, tropical garden so you can truly embrace the Tropicana experience. The outside area fully embraces the location, with a private pool welcoming you for a daily dip and a pool deck featuring a wooden table, chairs and an umbrella – all set for meals outdoors.

Just a plane ride away lies the real fantasy island, Barbados. An island that gives a dreamlike, intimate feeling to your trip.

There’s no better tropical getaway than the vibrant, picturesque Caribbean island of Barbados - the sunsets are stunning, the beaches renowned and the locals are as warm and welcoming as the climate. Stretching just 21 miles, there’s no reason not to explore all of what Barbados has to offer, from the UNESCO-listed old part of the vibrant capital, Bridgetown, to some of the greatest natural treasures on the island Harrison’s Cave and Farley Hill National Park. 

Barbados is a place that embraces the slower pace of life, everyone takes in the moment. It’s not hard to relax when the weather is lovely all year round, It averages over 3,000 hours of sunshine each year, and it is treated to prevailing northeast trade winds that create a light breeze, so it’s rarely unbearably hot.

This villa is located on the West Coast, near Gibbes Bay. With some of the most beautiful and popular beaches and beach clubs at your fingertips - there’s nothing you will be left wanting. This villa is just 2-kilometres from Speightstown, one of the island’s major towns that has a rich, long history and plenty of character. The town, which is also known as Little Bristol, is the second major town in Barbados and is also one of the busiest ports.

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 wonderful location to add to your bucket list, especially for those travelling with children.

Of course, children of all ages will be pleased by the crystal-clear waters - and adults can rest assured that the swim spots are safe. The best places to swim with young children include Mullins Bay, Accra Beach and Batts Rock. Many of these spots are small coves monitored by lifeguards. They also have amenities such as change rooms, bathrooms, food kiosks and playgrounds.

Experience the seas like a pirate aboard the Jolly Roger I, complete with pirate sails, rope swings, planks to walk and BBQ buffet - there’s even swim stops on the way. Or, head under the ocean and see who can find Nemo first on the Atlantis Submarines Barbados, which takes passengers to a coral-encrusted shipwreck to see tropical fish up close.

If you want to immerse the whole family in the culture of Barbados, head to the Barbados Museum, which offers countless tales of Bajan history including child-friendly exhibits in the Children’s Gallery. The Oistins Friday Night Fish Fry is also must, Bajans put on a show with their Caribbean dance moves to live reggae, while guests indulge in the island’s specialty, flying fish.

Reviews

  • Thank you for making our vacation fantastic!

    Posted by Anonymous on 01/04/2018

    What an amazing holiday! The house, location, beaches, pool and weather have exceeded our expectations. The food and ambience at the Tide, CinCin, Cliff and Lonestar were spectacular. But nothing beats the pampering we received from the Green Monkey House staff! Tyrone and Joseph for their chats, Alicia for keeping the house tidy - she had our laundry done so quickly we could have packed lighter! Sandra was OUTSTANDING! Her cooking was magnificent, we loved every home cooked meal. I will need to step up my game when I get home! Looking forward to coming back.

  • Something for everyone!

    Posted by Anonymous on 12/02/2018

    I like the Barbadian people! The island is beautiful - there is something for everyone! I loved the West for the sunsets and for swimming but I loved the wilderness of the East. Wish I had more time to do the rest! The location is great and the grounds were lovely. Our cook, Sandra.. we loved her! Alicia was so lovely and provided a clean home for us to stay in.

  • Great villa near Gibbs beach

    Posted by David on 12/01/2018

    Loved the villa and the villa staff were great. One thing I would say is that the villa was quite shaded in January with the sun fairly low in the sky. Otherwise the Villa was spacious and well equipped. Nearby Gibbes beach was beautiful and quiet. No beach bar or loungers made it a perfect location to just chill. Only 10 minutes walk away was Mullins beach bar - look out for the band playing on Sundays - and a petrol station with basic provisions. Mullins beach has all the usual amenities and if you can take the crowds is great fun. Ask Venessa to twerk and you’ll be in stitches! Holetown is about 15 mins drive away - try the local buses - they are cheap and safe - where there are a range of shops bars and restaurants. Be aware though that Green Monkey House is relatively isolated so you may want a car. Otherwise a fantastic holiday!
