Set within the quiet residential community of Gibbes Glade in Barbados, Todmorden is a traditionally styled three-bedroom coral stone villa, designed so that all of the bedroom and living areas can enjoy the cooling tropical breezes. Surrounded by lush gardens, the outdoor pool area is reminiscent of a tropical oasis. The villa is a five-minute walk from Gibbes Beach, one of the best beaches on the West Coast of Barbados. The historic town of Speightstown, which offers a range of shopping and casual dining options, is just a ten-minute drive away.
The villa is comfortably furnished, with 3 spacious bedrooms featuring modern en suite bathrooms. The living room opens onto a covered terrace featuring an alfresco dining and separate seating area, overlooking the gardens and saltwater swimming pool.
Todmorden is an excellent vacation rental for families, or groups of friends looking for a relaxing holiday away from the crowds, but still close enough to all of the amenities that Barbados has to offer.

Barbados is a beautiful island on the eastern tip of the Caribbean. Its most famous asset is, of course, its white-sand beaches and azure sea, both of which combine to produce some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Those looking to simply relax by the beach tend to prefer the Caribbean side, which is located in the south and west of the island and offers calm, warm, light-blue water. Those looking to surf or windsurfing, though, will prefer the waves of the Atlantic waters on the east side.
Nightlife and dancing lovers, meanwhile, would be wise to stay near all the action on the St Lawrence Gap, which offers a wide variety of local performances such as the famously colourful Tuk band, known to wow audiences with their skills on the bass drum, kettle drum, and penny whistle. Our wide selection of Barbados luxury vacation rentals may help make your stay complete, but, no matter where you stay, you will enjoy access to pristine beach fronts, world-class golf courses, duty-free shopping, and a wide range of entertainment options.
Barbados boasts an exquisite selection of restaurants offering a wide array of culinary specialties. Ranging from delicious local dishes to international cuisine prepared by some of Europe and the Caribbean’s top chefs, Barbados dining choices are seemingly endless.
The West Coast is home to many of the island's most popular dining spots, including five-star restaurants, quaint local eateries and specialty restaurants offering an assortment of cosmopolitan flavours, including Asian, Indian, Italian and French-inspired menus. In recent years the South Coast has also seen a boom in fine dining facilities, and you can find many local favourites nestled among the hotels and entertainment venues.
During the day most establishments accept casual attire, however visitors should keep in mind that Barbados is a conservative island and appropriate cover-ups and shoes are required, even at the beach bars. In the evening, a more formal dress code is expected, however a dinner jacket is not required.
A nominal gratuity is often included in the bill, especially for larger parties; however it is at the discretion of the guest to increase or decrease the amount as they deem appropriate.

First time visiting Barbados. Very busy island. We prefer a quieter atmosphere. The villa was beautiful and well appointed. The pool and garden areas were beautiful. If you desire a view of the Caribbean, this isn't the villa for you. There were no rafts or foam noodles (the cheap kind) provided for relaxation in the pool and even though you had a short walk, down a path, across a busy street to get to the beach, no beach chairs were provided as well. There was a lack of warm shower water in the master bedroom, the duration of our stay, and even though there was an attempt to fix the problem, it was not solved. Janis and Pasquale, the cook and housekeeper, were there every day from 9-5 or even later, so if you desire privacy, that isn't happening at this villa. They were wonderful and Janis cooked up some incredible meals. They certainly tried their best along with Peter from the rental management on site in Barbados, to get the problem rectified and Rental Escapes, I believe, did what they could do in providing this issue to the villa owner. Will not be revisiting Barbados.
