Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

Looking out over the beautiful Mullins Beach, Sundown Villa is the ideal place to explore the considerable delights of Barbados’ western coast. This four-bedroom villa is just a four-minute drive from the island’s second-largest town, Speightstown, and has its own stunning pool and terrace as well as lush, tropical gardens.

Colourful inside and out, Sundown Villa enjoys a magnificent location, with breath-taking ocean views from many of its rooms. The outdoor space is particularly striking, with sun loungers lining the curves of the eye-catching private pool, and a lovely gazebo with covered dining area and barbecue providing the ideal drinks spot as the sun goes down.

You can enter the living room directly from the terrace, and inside you have a light and bright seating area with wall-mounted flat screen television. An indoor dining area is perfect for a more formal dinner, and an impressive kitchen has everything you may need, including a huge fridge freezer and dishwasher. Breakfast & lunch is provided, courtesy of the villa’s cook, and there is also a housekeeper to keep everything running smoothly.

All four of the bedrooms are air-conditioned with an en-suite bathroom, three of them with direct access to the terrace and wonderful views down to the beach. You have two king-size beds and three queen-size in these rooms, and there is an additional bathroom too.

Mullins Beach is a tranquil beach with calming seas, and beach bars and stalls nearby for drinks and snacks. Head north and you come to the former port of Speightstown, where history and culture meet great Bajan cuisine, while to the south, Holetown is the place for an unforgettable night out. With some of the best nightlife in the west and a host of international restaurants, don’t miss this vibrant hive of activity looking out on the glistening Caribbean Sea.

Formerly an important port, nicknamed ‘Little Bristol’ in reference to its trade links to that British city, Speightstown has an authentic edge which sets it apart. It hasn’t been overly developed for tourism, aside from a recent marina development, and this is perhaps what gives it its charm. While it’s no longer a seafaring hub, it’s still busy and enjoyably historic. A museum and gallery of Caribbean Art are among the attractions worth seeking out.

Just north of the town, the Six Men’s Fish Market offers a taste of this still-important Barbadian trade. On Friday and Saturday nights, there’s a fish fry with drinks and side dishes, where you can the fresh catch under the night sky, often with live entertainment. It is also a popular area for scuba diving – a 165ft-long wreck called the Pamir lies just off Six Men’s Bay, and is the impetus for many people to get down there and see it.

As you head south of Speightstown, you come to the glamorous area known as the ‘platinum coast’, where the rich and famous come to play. Even without the luxury stores and hotels it’s a good-looking place, with beautiful white sands and quiet coves lining the stretch around Holetown.

This is the place to be if you’re looking for upscale nightlife, much of it around Holetown’s First and Second Streets, where you’ll find cool hangouts like the Red Door Lounge. There are excellent beachfront restaurants and bars too, and a great atmosphere as you stroll along the boardwalk as the sun sets.

If you choose to head inland from Speightstown, you will be rewarded by the natural beauty of the Farley Hill National Park. Only eight minutes’ drive from town, it enjoys a fresh Atlantic breeze from the east, and views of the coast too – a fine place for a picnic or to enjoy some live entertainment, as it sometimes hosts events like the Barbados Reggae Festival.

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!

This colourful holiday home is sure to get the approval of all the family, with the beach so close and a magnificent private pool even closer. It’s great for tech-lovers too, with plasma TVs, DVD player and the all-important Wi-Fi all present and correct.

Take a trip into nearby Speightstown and you will find all the shops and cafés you could want, and lots of great places for family dinners, many with lovely waterfront locations. Just a few minutes further to the south, Holetown delivers great adventures like snorkelling and boat trips from the Folkestone Marine Park, and cool shops and movies at Limegrove.

Breath-taking natural beauty is never far away in Barbados, so be sure to check out the Farley Hill National Park, the Barbados Wildlife Reserve or the Animal Flower Cave on the island’s northern tip, where the kids will love the sea anemones. Barbados is known for its mischievous green monkeys too – you never know where they might pop up, so keep an eye out for them!

Among the best family attractions on the island are the submarine trips you can take in Bridgetown, and the capital’s Jolly Roger pirate ship offers a cruise that’s great fun for everyone. Elsewhere, why not see where a Jeep safari takes you – you might just uncover some real Barbados secrets.

  • "Our Home"

    Posted by Patrick Family on 30/07/2018

    So glad that the owners opened their home, it makes a stay like this able to me the best family memories possible. love how this shortly became "our home" for a short while. blessings.

  • Overall, a great place!

    Posted by Anonymous on 07/07/2018

    The pictures don’t lie. The house is perfectly situated, steps from Mullins Bay Beach and the property is meticulously maintained. Keen, the housekeeper, was warm, nice and always sweeping! The cook, Will can really burn! Her food was quite tasty and local fare. Having a menu would be helpful though. It was like pulling teeth to get her to offer suggestions of meals and she wasn’t the easiest to talk things out with. Overall, a great place, awesome pool, clean house and capable staff.

  • It is a place you can call HOME
