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

Villa Beaming sun is a plush beachfront home offering a lavish oasis of decadence, style and luxury on the glittering West coast of Barbados. Like a water-side palace, this unique home is bursting with colonial elegance and Italianate influences, from fountains, statues, ornate decorative touches and sleek marble pillars against dazzling white coral.

Overlooking the beach, which is accessible at the end of the garden, the villa’s majestic facade of creamy tones features a beautiful cloistered veranda and elegant covered balconies - guests may sit back enjoying the ocean breezes and magnificent sunrises with their morning coffee, or crimson sunsets with a rum cocktail!

The arched doorway is like a window to the sea, framed by an explosion of colour, whilst the pool sits regally just a few steps from the villa’s front door; a gorgeous azure set amid tropical vegetation and tall, regal planters spilling over with vivid flowers.

With a fully equipped dining porch, service counter and bar, this home offers the ultimate stylish setting for outdoor living; from flamboyant pool parties to refined afternoon teas in the colonial, Bajan tradition, to post-swim breakfasts with the trade winds softly cooling - this home is the quintessential entertainer’s dream.

The interiors are no less alluring; unapologetically luxurious, the open plan living spaces are airy, well-proportioned and awash with decorative flair. Nautical themes meet Italianate embellishments; from alcoves to Roman style water feature with rockery, to marina blue tiles against brilliant white stone and coral.

Polished mahogany furnishings, chic lighting and antique gilded mirrors and frames offer an edge of colonial glamour, whilst all the contemporary touches are in place offering a seamless level of comfort within lavish styling.

Four bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms offer ocean views; guests can enjoy the sunsets from the privacy of their suite. Each suite has unique quirks, whether it be vivid accents of cobalt blues, pretty porcelain ornaments or chic writing desk, or soft pistachio greens with coral coloured candy stripes. Three of the rooms are Doubles and one is a Twin.

Three discreet staff members providing cooking, house-keeping as well as concierge services for arranging water sports.

Villa Beaming Sun, so aptly named, leaves a smile on guests faces; a charismatic home which doesn’t compromise when it comes to a little indulgence, and decorative panache, for a glamorous setting from which to enjoy the glittering jewels of the “platinum” coast.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The pool is unfenced and there are some hard steps internally and so those travelling with young children should ensure they take care
  • Some additional services will incur extra charges (as well as an additional layer of indulgence)
  • Please note that you will need to select 8 guests should you wish to have access to all 4 bedrooms. Those selecting fewer guests will only have access to a prorated number of bedrooms based on 2 guests per room.

Villa Beaming Sun is nestled in a premium beach front position in the exclusive West Coast of Barbados, also known as the “platinum coast” for its pristine beaches and turquoise waters. Despite this region being developed with high-end hotels and stately private residences to an international jet-set, its coast remains one of the most beautiful Barbados has to offer. With the recent development of extensive boardwalks, visitors can enjoy spectacular sunset strolls with the glittering sea as their companion.

This majestic home enjoys the best of a beach front location as well as proximity to the second largest town in Barbados: Speightstown (2.4 km), also known as ‘little Bristol,” a vibrant town brimming with colonial charm.

Speightstown is characterful and historic, showcasing an eclectic and interesting mix of architecture - buildings with colonial roots, new developments, vividly coloured street vendors and fishermen unloading their catch on the jetty.

The Royal Westmorland Golf course is 3 km distance from the villa, whilst the island’s capital, Bridgetown is 16 km. Starting from the National Heroes Square with its Lord Nelson statue, visitors can explore, shop and meander on foot.

Holetown (only 5 km south) 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 Chattel houses date back to plantation days; the small wooden shacks were designed to be movable, yet this didn’t limit their decorative charm; finished in candy pinks and pistachio greens with pretty shutters and sloping roofs.

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.

St Nicholas Abbey (to the east of the villa) is a magical, mystical spot, in the hills of St. Peter, offering over 400 acres of lush tropical overgrowth, impeccably manicured gardens, mahogany forests and undulating sugar cane fields.

Barbados is a place of contrasts, from movie-star hedonism to cane-cutting village life and artisanal fare; from fishing villages to dramatic, rugged Atlantic coastlines - visitors will enjoy a vivacious diversity within a very accessibly-sized island. A unique blend of vibrant, local life and colonial-influenced afternoon teas alongside cricket matches on the green!

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 offers so much for family travellers. At only 21 miles by 14 miles, with 60 miles of pristine coastline, days at the beach as a family are the centre of a Bajan holiday.

From intriguing caves, to mystical gardens, from vibrant street-fare to formal polo matches - genteel cricket matches and colourful street crafts, Barbados offers a unique experience for youngsters which will captivate small imaginations for years to come.

Villa Beaming Sun, on the west coast, offers proximity to some of the most child friendly beaches. Mullins Beach is a good option for kids with tranquil seas and long sandy stretches for sand-castle building whilst adults will enjoy rum punch from their rented parasols or older kids will indulge in water sports. Folkestone Marine and Visitor Centre in Holetown offers a fantastic museum and beginners snorkelling.

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.
