Recent Christ Church reviews
"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."Guest: Dennis and Caron Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 22, 2014View listing
"This was an excellent place to stay for the start of our holiday. The house is really nice, with all the amenities you'd need for a beach holiday and is only a short walk to Miami / Enterprise beach. The host was responsive and met us at the property and showed us everything we needed to know. It is only a short walk from the house into Oistens and the fish market. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a great place to get away and enjoy the sunshine."Guest: Stu Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: May 19, 2014View listing
"What a wonderful spot in Paradise. Close to everything yet a few minute walk away from the center of tourism. Feels like local Barbados. Condo has everything you could want or need in your home away from home. Small grocery store next door. Larger store about a 15 minute walk away. Descriptions and pictures accurately describe this lovely spot. Rob was great to deal with as was Greg when we arrived. Dover Beach is a 2 minute walk away. Local buses about a 10 minute walk. This place has a great location, is safe and the perfect spot for a great vacation. Would highly recommend."Guest: Terry P. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: March 28, 2014View listing
"This is the second time my husband and I have visited Barbados and this property, we love it. If you enjoy being independent and steering clear of the regular tourist area then this is the perfect place for you. It is walking distance to great restaurants, grocery stores , beautiful beaches, a gym and a short bus ride to Bridgetown to sail on a catamaran or do a tour of the Mount Gay Rum Factory. I highly recommend this property."Guest: SJ Date of Stay: December 2013 Review Submitted: January 6, 2014View listing
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!
