    "Ce voyage fut réellement intéressant et m'a permit un apprentissage profond de l'anglais Je suis venue à Barbades et plus précisément dans cette maison grâce aux conseils de ma grande sœur et je n'ai pas été déçue. Des plages au repas en passant par les cours d'anglais ont permis à mon voyage d’être réellement incroyable et inoubliable. Les chambres sont superbes grâce aux lits très confortables qu'il y a et à la structure. Cette famille est dotée d'une grande hospitalité et d'une grande gentillesse, j'en garderai de très bons souvenirs."

  • A picture perfect place for your home base while visiting Barbados

    "We chose This charming place for our stay in Barbados based on the reviews we read on VRBO and it did indeed meet all that was promised. It is very well appointed to meet all our needs, a comfortable bed, kitchen utensils galore and a most helpful owner (easily accessible by email) along with friendly staff and guests and/or owners in other units. This was a delightful place to stay for our Barbados visit – beautiful views, swimming in warm clear water, meals on either the front or back patio depending on where the sun was, easy walking distance to pick up basic supplies or to catch a ZR bus further afield. We highly recommend this property for couples (with or without a car) as your base from which to enjoy Barbados."

  • Two Thumbs WAY Up!

    "From the uncomplicated booking, to the extra care taken by Leroy to make sure we had the best time possible, this was a great experience. My beautiful wife and I felt competely at home in the large comfortable home, with full kitchen, flat screen TV's, BBQ and laundry.My wife particularly loved the view from the terrace walkout balcony off our room. Enjoyed our one evening just lounging in the tropical backyard. Also loved the easy access to beautiful Miami Beach and Oistin's busy town life. The community of Mont Rose, where the house is located, is two minutes walk away from grocery and liquor stores and the friendly local people make you feel like you have lived there all your life. Thanks Leroy, for the great time and for sharing your home with us. We will be back in November and will be bringing some friends who want to see it for themselves!"

  • Excellent location to stay at in Barbados!

    "Glenville Gardens is a wonderful place to stay for the sophisticated traveler. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and their recommendations were very appreciated by us. The service is very friendly and professional. Barbara responds quickly to email questions and kept in touch about our upcoming visit. The cottage that we rented was fully equipped and private, we felt as though we were staying a garden home, not a cottage rental. The decor is tropical, complete with two decks which we used every night for our meals. The location is very quiet and restful, and the cottage was extremely clean. At night you do not hear any street noise at all, and each morning we were awoken by the sounds of birds and monkeys in the trees. The location is within walking distance to the beach, shops, banks, and restaurants. The best part was that we were able to come and go on this beautiful property, which felt like home after merely one week."

Christ Church Travel Tips

Things to do From Your Christ Church Vacation Rentals Base

Barbados’s unique claim to fame is that it is the most easterly island in the Caribbean. Although it is just 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, it packs a great deal into its limited space. The island is fairly flat and has an excellent local transport system which makes it very easy to get around and explore this true Caribbean gem. Further inland, the island has lush vegetation which is home to some unique and extraordinary wildlife.

Christ Church is in the southernmost parish and known for its superb beaches. It is one of the quieter areas of Barbados but the livelier towns of Oistins and Bridgetown are close. Christ Church has plenty of local shops where you can buy fruit and provisions as well as fresh fish. With a vacation villa, you can quickly adapt to the laid-back Caribbean lifestyle.

Barbados offers some unique opportunities for things to do around the island. You can swim in the clear waters with the giant sea turtles or take a trip to Harrison’s Cave. The quieter east coast of Barbados has some magnificent waves rolling ashore near Bathsheba.

Snorkelers and divers will enjoy a catamaran cruise to some of the best spots, where guests can snorkel and dive in the crystal clear warm sea. During the day, most visitors cannot resist heading down to the beautiful beaches.

An island jeep safari is a great way to see the island’s charms further inland. There are also plenty of beautiful hiking trails to see the wildlife, birds and historic monuments which recall Barbados’s interesting past.

Weddings and Honeymoons in Barbados

The Caribbean island of Barbados is always a popular destination for weddings, honeymoons and romantic vacations. It is very easy to arrange a beach wedding through a professional wedding planner. It also keeps costs down as guests generally pay for their own flights and accommodations. The honeymoon begins the minute you say “I do.” With guaranteed sunshine, Barbados is the perfect place to begin your life together.

How to get to the Beautiful Christ Church Beach Rentals

It is very easy to travel to Barbados and to get around this fabulous island. There are international flights daily from North America and Europe. It is three hours 40 minutes flying time from Miami, four hours 20 minutes from New York, five hours from Montreal, eight hours from London and nine hours from Brussels or Frankfurt.

The major airlines serving Barbados are Air Jamaica, American Airlines, US Airways, Air Canada, Caribbean Airlines and British Airways.

Places to Visit From the Well-Located Christ Church Villas

From your Christ Church vacation rentals, St. Lawrence Gap is just a five-minute drive away. “The Gap,” as it is known, is one of the most popular spots for tourists to visit on Barbados. It has excellent restaurants, offering a choice of cuisine and range of prices. After dark, the area is alive with vibrant nightlife in the local bars.

Oistins is just a short trip from Christ Church and a pretty fishing village. On Friday nights, everyone lets their hair down to the sound of Caribbean music. Colorful shacks serve authentic Caribbean food such as fish fry at low prices and the local rum flows freely. For a great beach party atmosphere, Oistins is hard to beat.

What to Expect Weather-Wise in Barbados

The beauty of the Caribbean is that it is beautifully warm and sunny all year-round. Temperatures are always reliably high, between 75 and 85 F (24 to 29 C). If that sounds a little too hot, the prevailing northeast trade winds generally keep the island pleasantly fresh. Barbados does get some rain, generally between July and December, but it falls as short sharp showers which quickly disappear. The island enjoys eight hours of sunshine per day on average, and 10 hours of sunshine per day between January and March, at a time when the northerly United States are shivering!
