Welcome to the evolution of Greensleeves, a luxury boutique-style villa in Barbados. The owners of Greensleeves made an excellent decision to enhance and create an even more luxurious experience for guests. An extensive renovation of the beachfront estate gave life to a stunning Barbados villa.

Greensleeves is now the ideal villa with full staffing, eclectic decor, and sumptuous cuisine. The epitome of luxury reborn.

Arrive in Barbados with your negative test results and voila, you’re free to go. It’s that simple. Have breakfast, a dip in the pool, (at your private vacation villa), or visit one of our Top 5 recommended restaurants – all with no time spent under restrictive movement. If you have not yet already done so and you have an upcoming stay with Blue Sky Luxury, please confirm to our team the vaccination status of all adults in your party so that we can ensure arrangements are made accordingly. Before you get to roaming the Barbados countryside, here are the full details for vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers in the new Barbados Travel Protocols.

What’s a fully vaccinated person?

A fully vaccinated person has been classified by the Barbados Government as having received an approved vaccine in a two-dose regime and has received both doses plus 14 days, or a one-dose regime, one dose plus 14 days. Your vaccination status will be fact-checked by the Barbados Government and persons who do not meet the criteria will fall under the travel protocol for unvaccinated persons. That’s not a terrible thing, it may be a slightly longer wait but the safety of Barbadians and visitors alike has always paramount. However, if you are looking forward to the roaming of said countryside, being fully vaccinated certainly fast tracks you there… ahem, as do our Concierge Can team

How Can we at Blue Sky Luxury Help?

Protocols are constantly changing; Barbados has been quite forward-thinking in ways to operate safely while placing the value of lives at the forefront. Our Concierge Can team can help you:

· Secure your PCR appointment with an approved medical practitioner

· Arrange for the medical practitioner to test you privately at your villa

Stick with the holiday home experts at Blue Sky Luxury to receive optimistic travel news as it happens. We will keep a close eye on travel trends so you stay updated. We are happy to share Barbados travel news with you as it happens. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook @blueskyluxury for updates and stunning vacation rentals.

Suitcase on the beach

Your Barbados vacation is booked. Your bags are packed. But, are they PACKED packed? Let us offer you five must-brings (or at least good-to-knows) that you may not have on your checklist to add an extra serving of ‘wow’ to your Barbados experience.

Extra charge…

It’s not what you think, so please put away your wallets. Barbados is chockfull of gorgeous scenery and Insta-cool experiences that are sure to turn you into a shutterbug. So, if you have one, be sure to pack your power bank – or battery chargers for the professional content creators out there – so that you won’t be left hanging mid-click! And, don’t forget to bring the necessary electrical plug converters to charge your devices.

A nice outfit

We know you’re probably at ten-and-counting beachwear and casual options when it comes to your Barbados vacation fashion haul, but have you even packed a formal wear option? Trust us with this one, since you’ll probably want to have a chic, fine dining night out while on the island. And for the night owls, don’t you want to take in the full Barbados nightlife offering in style?

A pair of sneakers

While we’re on the topic of your vacation fashion, go ahead and make some space for your flip-flops’ more athletic and adventurous sibling. In Barbados, we call them sneakers, but maybe you’ll relate if we say tennis shoes… or gym shoes… or runners. Whatever you prefer to call them, the point remains that you’ll have several more options of Barbados experiences if you have them. This includes hiking through nature trails, parks, and gullies, scenic walks, or even spelunking through the island’s caves. Or maybe your lovely holiday home has a tennis or basketball court and you want to capitalize… in this case, you can!

Pack the romance

This one is a bit more figurative than the others. But, with villas this gorgeous and island vistas so memorable, we couldn’t resist hinting at a love-themed stay. You will be luxuriously spoilt for choice with the options of a stunning garden, seaside or even underground cave wedding. Or, be the envy of your friends with a beautiful Barbados honeymoon. Propose to the love of your life in paradise, or for those veterans at love, renew your vows with the island’s blessings.

Pack up house…

Unlike the romance, we mean this literally. If for some reason you haven’t heard, Barbados is offering you the amazing opportunity to live where you vacation. This has been made extremely easy thanks to the Barbados Welcome Stamp Visa, which is a programme launched back in 2020. So, if you have professional flexibility that allows you to work remotely, have a slice of paradise for a little longer than normal! And, what’s amazing about this prospect is that you can bring the whole family – even your fur babies!

Book your Barbados adventures and experiences with our Concierge team – they’re waiting to make your next trip an unforgettable one!

The importance of keeping a complete, cataloged inventory listing of all of the items (including appliances, equipment, furniture, soft furnishings, cutlery, towels, and linens) at your home cannot be overstated.  All items in all buildings such as garages, storage areas, and gazebos should be included.  This is very important when requesting insurance coverage and having the necessary documentation should an insurance claim need to be made.

For Blue Sky Luxury holiday rental properties, your property manager will count, itemise and log all of the property’s effects and complete a thorough check of the quantity and condition of the items.  Your property manager will be required to conduct spot checks after each guest’s departure. You will be notified of any proven damages or losses at any replacements needed at that time will be purchased.  These replacements and any other additions that may occur during the year will then be itemised on the annual inventory listing when retaken.

For homes that rent long-term, full inventories are always taken and updated in between tenancies.  In both cases, your property manager will be responsible for checking the home after each departure. The reconciliation of the security deposit can be completed with wear and tear expected depending on the length of time the tenants resided there.  Similarly, any replacements and additions will be captured on the updated listing for the next expected tenant.

Good To Know

When offering your home for holiday rental, it is important to know and provide adequate par levels for all glassware, cutlery, dinnerware, linen, and towels.  For example, you want to ensure that the home has place settings, matching glassware, and cutlery for the advertised number of guests that can be accommodated at the property + 50%.  For example, for a 4-bedroom rental property that accommodates 8 guests, the catered capacity will be 12 people.

Similarly, adequate par levels, while different from the expectation of a holiday rental home are also expected when a property is offered for long-term rental.

When the inventory listing is created, the location, make and model of all appliances and equipment is noted.  During this process, it is a great opportunity to create an asset register of these items.  The asset register will have all of the above details and photos plus the serial numbers are included.  Information, where available, on the age and value of each, will be recorded.

Many services are offered during the onboarding of new homes to Blue Sky Luxury.  Contact us for a quote, if you are interested in any of these services as a one-time, separate service. We can’t wait for your call!

Family Photo
So, you’re planning a
Barbados vacation with the family? We’re confident you’ll have an unforgettable holiday. But we also know what it’s like trying to coordinate activities that the whole family will enjoy. Excursions that are fun-filled and kid-friendly, but also stimulating and interesting for the adults. Is that too much to ask for? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. You’ll be spoiled for choice with things to do in Barbados. So to get you started, here are six Barbados family activities handpicked by the Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Team.

Rasals Water Park

Barbados water sports

For beach lovers, there’s a lot more on offer than sandcastles and sun loungers. For action-packed fun, Rascals Water Park has an inflatable obstacle course – a floating playground with slides, jumps, and more. Carlisle Bay is a great place to try paddle boarding and kayaking. Or check out Freights Bay for surf lessons – the easy-going long waves are great for beginners and kids. Why not join a snorkel tour or learn to scuba dive at one of the many dive shops on the island? Our Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Services can recommend and book the best Barbados water sports activities for you and your family. 

Harrison's Cave

Harrison’s Cave

Grab your hard hats and head underground for one of the island’s most spectacular natural features, and a top Barbados family-friendly activity. The interactive tour (aboard an open tram, which the kids will love!) takes you deep into the crystalised limestone cave system that stretches over two kilometers. Discover impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations, flowing streams, deep pools, and even an underground waterfall. Harrison’s Cave is a fun and educational experience, and (here’s an insider tip!) it’s a great activity for those rare rainy days in paradise. 

Seaduced Catamaran

Catamaran Cruise

You’re in the Caribbean! So a day on the water is a must and it’s one of our top recommendations for things to do in Barbados. There are several companies offering catamaran day cruises on a join-in or private basis. Most offer two snorkel stops with the chance to swim with turtles and explore a shipwreck, followed by a delicious Bajan buffet lunch and a cruise along the iconic Barbados west coast. Just picture yourself sipping on a rum punch, under sail, looking out at the stunning turquoise waters. The Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Services can recommend the best cruise for your family, and make all the arrangements. 

St. Nicholas Abbey Train

St Nicholas Abbey

A national treasure with something for the whole family. The kids will love the ride on the historic steam train that climbs to Cherry Tree Hill with stunning views over the east coast. This is followed by a tour of the great house, rum distillery and of course a rum tasting session for the adults. The estate grounds are expansive and beautiful – lots of room for little ones to explore and run around, and there’s a lovely café serving drinks and snacks. Overall St Nicholas Abbey offers a wonderful excursion that ticks all the boxes for a memorable day out for your Barbados vacation

Animal Flower Cave

Animal flower cave

Another ‘must do’ for Barbados family activities is a visit to this unique natural feature on the wild and rugged north east coast of the island. Animal Flower Cave is named after the sea anemone ‘animal flowers’ that live in the natural pools, descend the rock staircase into this stunning seaside cave, open to the crashing Atlantic waves on one side. Bring your swimsuit and have a paddle in the beautiful natural pool inside the cave. Be sure to have lunch at the breathtaking ocean-facing restaurant when you return to the ground level. There’s a small playground for children, often with inquisitive goats running around! 

Welchman Hall Gully

Welchman Hall Gully

Follow the nature trail deep into this beautiful natural gully which was formed by a collapsed cave system in the centre of Barbados. You can take a guided tour with one of the knowledgeable tour guides, or just enjoy a self-guided visit  The path is paved and wheelchair / stroller accessible, so Welchman Hall Gully is a great family-friendly excursion particularly for small children. Our tip is to pack a picnic and take your time. One added bonus is to visit when the monkeys are being fed (usually between 10.30 am and noon). 

This is just a flavour of the many things to do in Barbados. Our Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Team is ready to make your Barbados vacation as special as possible with carefully selected activities to match the interests of your family. Priceless memories await!

At Blue Sky Luxury, we value our property inspections, our detailed and consistent twice annually inspections, which are crucial to protecting our valued tenants and homeowner’s investments, as well as the continuous reinforcement of our ‘Blue Standards’.

As Barbados’ leading property management company – Blue Sky Luxury holds a vested interest throughout our managed properties. But more importantly, we help our tenants and homeowners, breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that we are truly safeguarding their interest.

In our world of Property Management, inspections from time immortal, are our best line of defense against property damage, and oftentimes, personal injury, as we focus on the health, safety, and wellness of our tenants and homeowners.  As you can appreciate, whether it is due to tenants’ misuse of a property or maintenance issues that go unchecked, property damage can lead to hefty repair bills – especially when it goes unnoticed for long periods of time.

As our mission, we prefer to be proactive, rather than reactive. Over time, you perhaps heard of many nightmare scenarios of tenants turning beautiful homes into anything from brothels to drug labs to party houses.

While we appreciate that not every tenant can be painted with the same brush, we are committed to ensuring that all our tenants are held to the ‘Blue Standard’, so that our homeowners’ investments remain protected.

In this topic, we will examine the below listed key areas.

What is a Property Inspection?

A Property Inspection is a detailed and systematic visual inspection of the property, its structures, design, and fixtures that will provide a transparent understanding of the property’s ‘vital signs’ and condition as observed on the inspection date.

The Value of a Property Inspection

Like most homeowners, the purchase of standalone homes, villas, or condominiums, or even the most luxurious multi-million dollar homes, purchasers have very little to no prior knowledge of, or expertise in or property management.

Property management companies, such as Blue Sky Luxury, specializes in property management professionals, who have the knowledge, skills, and experience to detect costly problems. For example, most of the value of residential land comes from the house. To explain further, a house with one or more severe structural, electrical, or even plumbing issues can cost tens of thousands of dollars or even more. Consequently, scheduled property inspections are necessary in ensuring your investment remains in pristine condition. Property inspections are an added value mechanism, every homeowner with a vested interest in his or her property should maintain. After our annual inspection, as a homeowner, you will have a much clearer understanding of your property’s condition; highlighting the necessary maintenance and preventative maintenance measures you need to undertake.

There’s Even More Added Value…

The Inspection, Key Areas of our Focus

Depending on the age, size of the property, and its general layout, inspections can generally be lengthy, ranging anywhere between 2 and 6 hours, in terms of navigating the property. The property manager will examine the property and its structures, to include, but is not limited to:

Our Final Word – The Value in conclusion!

Property inspections are essential if our tenants and homeowner rights are to be protected while ensuring that our homeowners get maximum returns on their investment. The property management team at Blue Sky Luxury is committed and will continue to go the extra mile, to ensure that our wide-ranging portfolio of properties is magnificently maintained, such is vital to the longevity of the property.

Here, we have highlighted the value and equally so, the importance of property inspections and their importance to the tenant and our homeowners. As a tenant or a homeowner, you don’t have to worry, we have your safety and comfort, as our top priority.
