This gorgeous coral stone villa sits on the serene shores of Gibbs Beach and enjoys panoramic views of the bay and perfect privacy. Built-in the traditional Barbadian style the villa encourages outdoor living with large open doorways drawing the views into every room.
The open-plan living and dining areas lead directly out to the covered veranda with dining for six and a delightful plunge pool and deck. The private gardens lead through a side gate to the endless expanse of soft white sands and turquoise waters beyond.
Whitewashed wooden ceilings and cool coral interior walls are complimented with Caribbean chic furnishings. All bedrooms have air conditioning and the master and bedroom two both have oceanfront patios, perfect for early morning coffee or a private pre-dinner cocktail. The two guest rooms share a bathroom while the master bedroom has an en suite.
Apart from the excellent swimming and snorkeling, Gibbs Beach is an idyllic location for those looking for a beach holiday away from the crowds, but still within easy reach of the nearby Speightstown and Holetown which offer a plethora of delightful cafes, restaurants and local and international boutiques.

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.
World Class Golf
Royal Westmoreland Golf Course features a 6,870-yard 18-hole championship course with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, well-maintained greens and beautiful tropical surroundings. The par-72 course offers a challenging set-up, with the par threes renowned as some of the best in the world. The course is studded with bunkers, some taking advantage of the natural environment, including a coral stone quarry between the 5th and 6th hole and a ravine bordering a tight green at the 12th hole. Each hole is designed to accommodate a range of player expertise.
With spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, verdant greens and vivid tropical blooms and lush gullies lining the fairways, Sandy Lane Golf Club is renowned as one of the most stunning courses in the Caribbean. Part of the 5-star Sandy Lane Resort, the Country Club strives to provide players with a golfing experience like none other. The first course designed outside the United States by distinguished course architect Tom Fazio, the Country Club features open fairways, angled slopes and five lakes. With five par threes, eight par fours and five par five holes, the 7,060-yard course provides a challenging experience for professional and amateur golfers alike. In 2006 the Country Club hosted the World Golf Championships World Cup, a four-day tournament attended by international players and spectators alike.
One of the more active beaches on the West Coast, Brighton Beach is located near the island's capital city, Bridgetown. There is a popular local beach bar providing lunch and drink service, as well as beach chair and umbrella rentals. You will find a wide array of water sport options as well as the nearby Malibu Beach Club and Visitor Centre where you can tour the adjacent rum distillery.
Located between Holders Hill and Sandy Lane, Paynes Bay features ample parking and easy access to the beach. The waters are generally calm, providing excellent swimming and snorkeling conditions.
One of the island’s most stunning stretches of white sand beach, Sandy Lane provides excellent swimming and snorkeling conditions. Located south of Holetown, public access is available at Paynes Bay.

Located just south of the popular Mullins Beach, Gibbs Beach offers a tranquil setting with plenty of shaded areas and excellent swimming and snorkeling conditions. Water sport amenities are also available.
Featuring a picnic area and spacious parking facilities, Mullins Beach is a popular spot with both locals and visitors. There are beach chair and umbrella rentals as well as restaurant and bar service. The calm waters provide excellent snorkeling and swimming conditions and there are many water sport amenities available, including jet skis.

A Nice Stay at Waverly House
We really enjoyed our six nights at Waverly House and would consider it if we were to return to Barbados. There weren't a lot of reviews on the villa prior to booking so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. As for the positives: The villa had plenty of space for my group of 6 (4 adults, 2 kids) and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. The beds were comfortable and the bedroom air conditioning worked great in all three rooms. The third bedroom can be configured for either a king or two twins. The verandah and backyard felt like a tropical oasis and the beach was phenomenal. There was plenty of shade on the beach, or areas in full sun, the water was calm, and there were very few people (probably because it is rather secluded and not a lot of access to it except for the other villas nearby). Waverly House is essentially a duplex and there are other villas close by, but we never had an issue with noise from the neighbors, could hardly tell there was anybody on either side of us. The housekeeper (Margarita) was very friendly and took care of general cleanup, beds, towels, and did some laundry for us. She was there twice during our stay. As for the negatives: Waverly House is on a rather busy stretch of road and the noise from vehicles (especially the public busses) is pretty high so if you're looking for complete solitude, this might be bother you. Minor gripes; the coffee maker is small and overdue for a replacement, we couldn't get one of the living room fans to work (the other fans downstairs we couldn't get to spin fast enough either) and it seems as though in the evening the villa holds onto heat so it gets quite warm and humid so we found ourselves retreating to our bedroom early. The washer/dryer units are quite small so if you want to get your beach towels and clothing ready for the next day it takes a couple of loads and a few hours. Other notes: We had a couple of minor issues that popped up but the local property manager was able to quickly resolve them. There are some beach bars/restaurants nearby, but if you plan to walk there by the road it is on the dangerous side given the lack of sidewalks (we didn't have a car on this trip, but even if we did parking might have been a challenge). We didn't realize that the villa has a security guard (shared with other nearby villas) from 6pm-6am and on the first night he caught us off guard by coming through the side gate in the backyard un-announced to let us know he was there. Summary; a really nice villa, simple, not luxury, on a great stretch of beach that I would consider if we were to return in the future.
