However, please feel free to check the official Barbados Tourism Authority website www.visitbarbados.org where you will be able to see Blue Sky Luxury listed as an accommodation provider. Alternatively, you may contact them for verification of our credentials and expertise.

Julie's bright smile, keen eye for detail and knack for introducing "all things Barbadiana" endears her to all of our guests. "It always gives me pleasure to get their response to something special I've shared about our island.

More than 18 years of training and experience in the tourism industry, including managing front-of-house and reservations, makes her the right match for dealing with visitors. Julie also enjoys the ability to provide customized bespoke offerings, which set Blue Sky Luxury apart from a hotel experience.

  1. A catamaran cruise by day or night
  2. An adventurous 4X4 jeep safari

Guest Relations Co-ordinator Emma LordeEmma Lorde, Guest Relations Co-ordinator
"Barbados has a distinctive charm and is a world class island destination. Barbados has endless beaches, luxury resorts and fun nightspots."

Barbados is my home and not difficult to describe! Barbados with its pristine white sandy beaches, turquoise seas and wall-to-wall sunshine! Barbados is ideal for those wishing to spend a lazy, relaxing break sunbathing and swimming. I love swimming with the turtles. There are places around the West Coast where the hawksbill turtles frequent knowing they can be fed. Jumping from a catamaran and snorkeling with them is great! Their serene and wise demeanor has a therapeutic effect. Who needs dolphins?

One of our island's greatest exports is, of course, rum and no trip to Barbados would be complete without a tour of the Mount Gay distillery. Take a tour of the oldest rum producer in the world – around since 1703 is a must! The tour is interesting and you get to sample the different rums and enjoy a good Bajan buffet. There is no doubt Barbados can offer all you want in terms of luxury and paradise in a vacation.

Must do Activities - Emma recommends:

  1. A catamaran cruise
  2. Oistins - A great fish fry!
  3. An island safari

History

Over 30 years ago Sam Mahon started Bajan Services Limited slowly building the company into one of the most recognized names in luxury real estate and holiday rentals in Barbados. In 1963 Sam’s dad, Gus Mahon, began managing holiday homes on the West Coast as when many overseas owners wintered in Barbados and closed their villas for the summer months they left him in charge. Sam built on the foundation his father created developing Bajan Services Limited into a highly respected company known for its quality portfolio and commitment to the highest standards of customer service.      

In April 2008, Terra Caribbean, a leading real estate firm in Barbados specializing in residential and commercial real estate as well as property management and valuations, purchased Bajan Services Limited (BSL). In 2012, the holiday rental component of Bajan Services Limited was rebranded and launched as Blue Sky Luxury. Blue Sky Luxury has an impressive portfolio of quality holiday homes and a team of knowledgeable and experienced staff passionate about delivering a best in class holiday experience for all guests. Always friendly and fun-loving employees make guests feel welcomed, well cared for and appreciated.
