About the property

Beautiful house on the unspoilt SE coast of Barbados.

Bougan Villa is a lovely house with private pool situated in a small development in Bottom Bay on the unspoilt SE coast of Barbados.

The house has been finished to a high standard and has recently been redecorated throughout. The villa has all the accommodation and facilities needed to ensure that visitors have an amazing holiday on this beautiful island.

The well equipped kitchen contains all you need to prepare a six course banquet or a simple G&T! There is a large oven with electric grill and hob, a large fridge freezer with water and ice dispenser and a microwave. There is ample crockery, cutlery and utensils and also a coffee machine, a 4 x toaster and Ninja blender.

The separate dining room is beautifully decorated and has a ceiling fan and bi-fold doors leading out onto the covered terrace. Bougan Villa is one of the only properties on the Atlantic Rising development that has a separate dining room. If you prefer to eat al fresco there is also a dining table and chairs on the roof terrace.

The bedrooms are both air conditioned and have their own bathrooms. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite and the second bedroom has large fitted wardrobes with ample storage. There are also fans available for both bedrooms.

The comfortable lounge has two large sofas, two ceiling fans and a large flat screen TV with satellite channels. There are plenty of books and also games for guests' use.

The inside living area is comfortable, light and airy and leads out onto the shady extended terrace which is perfect for lazy days overlooking the private pool and lawned garden.

The palm trees provide for shady al fresco dining on the roof terrace and the views from the roof terrace of the nearby ocean are wonderful... the perfect place to enjoy the sun rise or set.

There is free WiFi throughout the villa and the use of a telephone for free calls within Barbados.

The Atlantic breeze on this side of the island means that even on the hottest days the temperatures are comfortable. Bottom Bay beach (voted as being in The Times' and Conde Nast's top-ten best beaches in the world) with its white sands and coconut palms is 3 minutes amble away. Harrismith, Palmetto and Long Bay (our personal favourite) are also stunning beaches which are just a short stroll. For less confident swimmers the Northern end of Long Bay has a very calm swimming area (see photographs).

For those of you looking for exciting night life and fine dining, the busier South and West coasts are a brief car/taxi/bus ride away. For the surfers amongst you a trip to the legendary Soup Bowl at Bathsheba on the East coast is a must, and is only 20 minutes drive away.

Truly, lovely property! Spent 10 days in Aug/Sept, and has everything you might need to ensure you have a comfortable stay. The pool is the icing on a rather delicious cake - perfect for cooling down on a hot day! Thanks to Jan for helping make our holiday a particularly enjoyable one.

Fantastic place. House had all we needed and a block from beautiful bottom bay beach. However beach is not swimmable - undertows. My only complaint is we had to drive to any swimmable beaches. We spent a lot of time on the terrace and in the little pool after being at the beaches all day. Safe and quiet place. Very enjoyable

Owner's Response: Hi Cheri Thanks for your positive review, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. There are several beaches within walking distance of the villa, the nearest being beautiful Bottom Bay - a few minutes walk from the villa. If you prefer a calmer sea then Sam Lord's Beach is for you, it is just 15 minutes on foot from the villa. The Northern end of the beach is protected by a natural wall of rocks meaning that the water is very calm and is therefore perfect for less confident swimmers. The water is crystal clear, the sand is white and in our opinion it is the best beach in the world!

Clean, fresh and well prepared villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa has all that is needed with the exception of one item, a microwave was not part of the deal but it is missed. There's a few other small points like bed heads, but this can be ok. However, there is an issue which is going to be put right and that is the security locks on some of the windows and the main front door, and more importantly the main external front door and frame itself which is a week internal door with the lock connection exposed on the outside. Like I said the villa is great but these issues need to be addressed mostly for night time security.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the positive points that you have made about about the villa, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We have now installed a microwave and we also have a brand new front door. All of the window locks are working, since receiving your feedback we have checked this and so can confirm that the locks are exactly as they should be. Once again, we're very glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back to Bougan Villa again very soon.

A great villa away from the tourist traps, 5 minutes walk to the best kept secret Bottom Bay.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 2 weeks. Welcomed by John....lovely man who you see working hard buzzing around the properties.

Very private villa with everything you could ask for...its was extremely hot even for Barbadians apparently....35C in the shade almost everyday.

Although 'Low Season' the island was very sourcing lunch out was a challenge....but we were delighted to drive to Enterprise (Miami) Beach...25 have the beach and sea literally to ourselves on many days ...bliss...lovely to swim with the locals at 0730...stunningly clean beach and views.

Please visit Huntes Gardens.....beautiful and have a drink with Anthony to get the history, walk on cattle wash beach on the east coast....desolate but stunning.

If you want a catamaran trip...the only way to go is Calabaza...they only take 12 people...price the same as the others with 20 + on. They pick you up from the villa, crew fantastic, swam with turtles and over ship wrecks...fab lunch.

Then we experienced Tropical Storm Matthew for a few hours before it left the Island...all credit to the island wouldn't have believed it had happened the next day.

John & Jan thank you for your friendly but unobtrusive advice and welcome to your island.

PERFECT! 5 ********

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I have just returned from a weeks stay here and this is genuinely a piece of paradise! The villa is beautiful with 3 full bedrooms, AC, full kitchen with all the utensils, living room inside and out with full size 6 seater table and BBQ and of course the lovely pool.

We hired a car from what Nicola recommended and this was went without an issue. You need a car really as it's a bit off the beaten track but this is what makes it so perfect!

The Bottom Bay beach is literally about 5 minute slow walk at the bottom of the road, and by far this was the most beautiful we saw on the island and we saw quite a few!

Jan and John were SOOOO lovely and made our stay even more enjoyable, anything you want to know they will know. They're so friendly and helpful and a really lovely couple and an assett to the villa.

There is absoloutely nothing bad to say here about the island or the villa other than stay longer than a week as you won't want to go home. I've not been home 12 hours and already writing this review so people realise how fabulous it is.

Hopefully I can return very soon! Also, the Bajan people are amoungst the nicest people I've ever met, so warm and kind, always helping with directions with a smile!

Thank you Nicola for sharing your peice of paradise!

Bottom Bay
Car: recommended

Bottom Bay beach (voted as being in The Times' and Conde Nast's top-ten best beaches in the world) with its white sands and coconut palms is 3 minutes amble away. Harrismith, Palmetto and Long Bay are also stunning beaches which are just a short stroll. The gentle Atlantic breeze on this side of the island means that even on the hottest days the temperatures are comfortable.

The local speciality, rum, is very cheap on the island, and there are many types – the Four Square distillery is very close by and is great to visit. Rum shacks are everywhere on the island, and are quite an experience!

When it comes to dining, you are spoilt for choice in Barbados. Some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean (and some suggest the world!) are a short drive away.

There are sailing and helicopter trips departing daily from Bridgetown and diving, surfing and kite-surfing enthusiasts will be kept busy.

Bottom Bay residential area is a peaceful location but just 5 minutes drive away is the Six Roads Shopping Complex with bank, post office, supermarket, fast-food restaurant and other retail outlets.

Lendee's local grill bar (delicious food) is just a 10 min walk and East Point Grill with its great food and amazing views is just 5 mins in the car.

Oistins is just a 20 min drive away and St Lawrence Gap, with its very busy nightlife, just 25 mins. There are many taxi services on the island and they are not expensive so getting around after a night out is not a problem!
