La Lune is a vibrant and light-filled home, executed with striking simplicity yet flawless quality, set within expansive, tropical grounds with the sparkling ocean as its neighbour.

A bright and breezy palette of minimalist whites and understated luxury offers a bijou environment; sleek open-plan contemporary spaces, delightfully unfussy and unadorned make for a chic and tranquil abode with a wonderful, upbeat Caribbean ease throughout.

With almost an acre of mysterious and vegetation-rich grounds, a bubbling hot-tub and views of the ocean framed with swaying palm trees and charming decking space, outdoor living is stylishly executed. Sitting back with rum cocktails at the end of a busy day, slipping into the hot tub or enjoying the sun setting over the ocean will be about as good as it gets.

The interiors at La Lune are tasteful and timeless, offering the ultimate serenity, this space is infused with understated style. A contemporary kitchen offers glossy white surfaces and sleek, industrial metals, with a relaxed breakfast bar leading into a charming living room, sedate yet cosy with driftwood furnishings and tranquil, earthy palette.

Two gracious bedrooms are flawlessly finished, with hotel grade bedlinen, abundant natural light and designer flair, they are serene havens of tranquillity. All the modern touches are in place: Apple TV and Sonos and security alarm.

La Lune is a newly renovated home which blends European sophistication with Bajan ease; ideal for entertaining - it comes with a fully equipped bar, wine fridge, ice-maker and an assortment of cocktail blending tools.

The location speaks for itself at La Lune; effortlessly and understatedly stylish, this is a discreet abode hallmarked by quality and subtle design; a veritable retreat from the hedonism of the glitterati and star-studded flavour of the west coast, this is a place for rejuvenation, wellness and mindfulness.

La Lune is set on Gibbs beach, which is much quieter than its neighbouring Mullins Beach, and is known for its peerless beauty, on arguably one of the finest stretches of coast in the world. Just north of Holetown, Gibbs Beach is backed by swaying palm trees, offering sparkling crystal waters and flawless white sands.

Several vendors offer lounge chairs, umbrellas and refreshments, such as the quintessentially Caribbean rum punch. Long enough for a stroll, catamaran charters cruise into the bay offering trips to Bridgetown and beyond, with snorkelling and sumptuous lunches on board. This stretch of coast is known as the “platinum coast,” for its fine beaches with white sands and clear, azure waters.

As well as the exclusive developments and international jet-set crowd that are drawn to this spot, visitors can delve into colourful, historical local life, architecture and traditions.

From rum festivals, to the colourful “crop over” festival (a tradition dating back to the plantation days), to indulgent beach massages, to Friday night’s fried fish nights, visitors will experience a colourful, inspiring blend of tradition and luxury.

Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element, from sailing to snorkelling, jet-skiing to kite-surfing, Barbados has it all. One of the greatest delights of this island is boarding the sparkling waters for a catamaran cruise, along with a decadent buffet meal and drinks.

Close by Holetown will offer a slice of local Bajan life. The Chattel village is a melting pot of artisans, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses provide a striking contrast to the colonial residences with their dazzling white coral facades and open verandas; the former are vividly coloured with fancy gables and gingerbread fretwork.

The west coast of Barbados is a blend of exclusive and high-end developments attracting a well-heeled, international jet-set, majestic beaches and intriguing, colourful local life.

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!

La Lune is an excellent choice for smaller families; it is secure and safe, and offers almost an acre of mystical gardens to explore, with nature trees, tropical overgrowth and a few steps down to the beach.

The beaches on the west coast are known as being extremely family-friendly, with shallow waters and long, open stretches. Both Mullins Beach and Gibbs beach offer an array of amenities, from water sports, to refreshments and loungers with parasols making for long and leisurely family days out.

Close by Harrison’s Cave offers a journey beneath the limestone surface that makes up much of the island - a mysterious 30 minute underground guided train trip taking in crystallised formations, intricate streams and awe-inspiring caverns. From collecting shells at the luscious Bathsheba Park, to a unique dining expense for the island’s traditional Friday night live music and fresh-off-the-docks flying fish, Barbados offers a vibrant, sensory experience for children.

Barbados offers a mystical experience for youngsters; one of the island’s traditions of swimming horses at dawn will leave exquisite memories for kids to cherish, and wildlife from tortoises to parrots to brocket deer will intrigue youngsters.

For older kids, Bridgetown offers several tours of intriguing shipwrecks, tropical fish and coral formations. Or, a combination of 4x4 jeep tour through tropical forest followed by a leisurely catamaran trip for a full family day out, finished up with sumptuous buffet at the end of the day.

Reviews

  • A true treasure

    on 02/07/2018

    La Lune is the most perfect little Villa snuggled on Gibbs beach, possibly one of the nicest beaches in Barbados. A true treasure of a place to stay complete with amazing staff who are always happy to go above and beyond. An exceptional property manager and a wonderfully affordable rate for a fully equipped, comfortably modern oasis.

  • Great views of the Caribbean Sunset

    on 23/10/2017

    Lovely villa with beachfront access. The beach here is beautiful and its where you will stay all day. Refreshing hot tub and eating area also with great views of the Caribbean sunset every night.

  • Ooh la la La Lune!

    on 06/06/2017

    Great rental. Its just been renovated and you’d know it. We are already looking at dates for later this year. Everything was just as said it would be. We appreciate that.

  • We feel like we’ve found our home from home in Barbados

    on 11/03/2017

    We were so delighted with La Lune. The location is just idyllic – I can’t tell you how many hours we spent just bathing in the sea & relaxing on the beach. My wife loved walking along the beach. Cheryl prepared delicious meals for us. Thanks to Julie for the restaurant recommendations – our favourite was The Tides. The new owners have done a great job on La Lune – we found it modern & chic. My favourite spot is the deck – watching the world go by on Gibbs!
