  • Barbados done on my budget!

    "I looked and looked for somewhere to stay on the beach in Barbados and everything seemed so out of my reach! Finally I found Chris' place at Freshwater and I couldn't be happier. I got a great deal for my 2 week stay and it's right on the beach!! Many thanks for a memorable trip!! Celina"

  • Very comfortable and beautiful house in top location!

    "We had a great time staying at the house! The location could not have been better: 7 minutes from the beach, at the beginning of Barbados "fancy coast" (lined with fancy hotels, fancy bars and fancy restaurants), halfway between Holetown and Bridgetown, and - if you care for discovering places using the racy yellow buses playing reggae music - with a bus in either direction every five minutes. At the same time the house is beautifully quiet and located on a hill with amazing views onto the sea - and you can enjoy this view either seated by the pool, lounging on the rooftop or while having dinner on the balcony. It had more bedrooms than we needed but its upside down style with three levels meant that it flexibly adjusts to parties of any size. We are already planning our next stay!"

St. Philip Travel Tips

Getting to St. Philip Vacation Rentals

The Grantley Adams International Airport is the main access point for the island of Barbados. The airport hosts regularly scheduled flights from most Caribbean, North American, and European airlines. To get from the airport to your vacation home, you can make use of the local taxi service, hire a car, or for that special occasion, rent a limousine.

Things to See and Do near St. Philip Resorts

When staying at St. Philip, you can be as active or as leisurely as you like. Enjoy the stunning beaches, work on your tan and take a refreshing swim in the sea from time to time. Watch the sunrise from your porch or take an early morning stroll along the beach. There are few things that compare to the beauty of an ocean sunrise.

Barbados has a number of interesting historic and cultural sites. The island was once a major hub for the slave trade, and there are a number of monuments and museums on the island that are interesting to visit. There are several old Anglican Church buildings that you can visit and walk around. The beautiful architecture of St. Philip Church, St. Catherine’s Church or the Holy Trinity Church will astound you; they all make excellent subjects for photographs.

Rum has been a large part of the Barbados industry over the years. Take an excursion to the Four Square Rum Distillery and Heritage Park where you can tour the rum factory. The grounds of the heritage used to be a children’s amusement park but it is no longer in operation. It is still nice to stroll the grounds though.

Golfing enthusiasts can enjoy a round at the 18-hole championship Barbados Golf Club. The golf course is located on the southern side of the island and has fantastic views from the greens. It became a PGA approved golf course in 2003.

Stylish Comfort at St. Philip Villas

In recent years, St. Philip has been the location of several new residential developments. Many of the homes in these developments are available as vacation rentals, offering guests a chance to experience the tranquility of St. Philip. The villas are built in a variety of styles but almost all are stylishly furnished with modern textiles and appliances. Many have sweeping views over the bay and easy access to the beachfront. Large wooden decks provide an area where you can enjoy social gatherings or dine al fresco on a warm summer night. The homes are generally quite large and can accommodate families or small groups of friends. Spacious living areas ensure that you never feel crowded. Perhaps one of the great benefits of the vacation homes in St. Philip is that they offer an affordable accommodation option when staying in Barbados.
