Moor in Barbados

Coming aware from my meditation, I sit on one of the most fantastic beaches in Barbados. I look around and there are family bubbles, swimmers, and joggers. People are happy. What stood out the most for me, were the yachts that were moored on the horizon, and the sense of peace. Suddenly I was (even more) grateful and wanted to share the experience with those moored at their home ports and unable to travel. If you miss the salt on your face, endless leagues of blue and you need respite; my friends, there is that and more in Barbados.

 

Life on the beach

It is on one of my daily jaunts to the beach, that I realise that there is freedom on the water and happiness in the things that you can do together as a family. While yachts bob on the horizon, the sun sets to the tune of freedom. A gentleman is doing a mini-triathlon – without the cycling (Ok, he’s running and swimming), the cutest baby is exploring a sandcastle, little girls are dancing on the water’s edge, and the health and wellness buffs are on the third rep of pushups, squats or sit-ups. The selfie crowd is taking advantage of the golden glow of the sunset. Pout. Pose. Pic! It’s life on the beach at its socially distanced best.

Beach Hopping – South to West

Truthfully, I beach hop a lot, there are different things I love about different beaches. At Silver Sands beach, the kite surfers dot the horizon and I enjoy the beauty of sunrise in the morning while they perform amazing feats. Silver Sands beach is just off the Atlantic Ocean, it’s a bit more rugged, not ideal for sea bathing unless you know the spots to go to. What I love is the wide beach which is perfect for long walks and exploration. A trip further down the south coast to Accra Beach brings you to the boardwalk and over 2 miles of beach to spend some family time and maybe grab a burger from the holy grail of eateries Chefette. My favourite though I must admit is the West Coast, my meditation spot. It’s a wide beach with calm man-made rock inlets for younger children to swim (Accra as well) and it’s so expansive, you easily find a spot to social distance. Close to Speightstown, I can grab some of the best freshly baked turnovers on the island from the PRC bakery and pick up groceries from the nearby supermarkets. I can pre-order for curbside pickup something healthier from ‘Orange Street Grocer.’ More so, I can enjoy time to rejuvenate in the outdoors.

 

Moor in Barbados, you decide

My love for Barbados and its world-famous beaches makes my job as a holiday home expert soul-satisfying. If you are allowed to moor in Barbados, maybe drop anchor for a couple of weeks and stay at one of our Barbados vacation rentals at Blue Sky Luxury. For 6 months+ stay, our sister company Terra Luxury also offers stunning residences at both Port Ferdinand and Port St. Charles where you can berth. Port St. Charles is an official port of entry with Immigration, customs, coastguard, and police. Units 147129, and 102 offer options for couples or large families. Port Ferdinand is also another amazing lifestyle marina development to choose from. Fair warning, you may fall in love with the spectacular ocean views and breathtaking sunsets of Port Ferdinand 103. Maybe it’s the meditation that brought me clarity but we’re extremely grateful in Barbados. The freedom of the beach and the friendliness of the people remain the same. Maybe you too can moor in Barbados, it’s lovely here.

Cteam of Holiday Home Experts promises you on your Barbados vacation. The island, which is the most easterly of the iconic Caribbean chain, is best known for its beautiful beaches, wonderful weather, and warm, pleasant people. But a new allure has been awakened thanks to luxurious villas, chic apartments and plush condos – all of which set the scene for a holiday that marries a feeling of home with a bold island lifestyle.

A stay in the northern tip of the island introduces subtle hints of Barbados past, with historic relics in the form of natural and cultural attractions. Also here are wonderful depictions of a more grandiose era of island architect in the form of breathtaking villas that await to play home to you and your loved ones, or please as the idyllic backdrop for your big day. Or, journey west to the platinum and star-studded coast and dive into the lap of island luxury. Golf, polo, serene, powdery beaches and high fashion shopping experiences dominate this landscape, as well as well-appointed, elegant villas that offer their own unique takes on the ‘Holiday Home’.

The southern and eastern coast of Barbados also tells their own unique stories, which are punctuated with varying seascapes, and several calling for adrenaline seekers. Moreover, the two coasts connect and offer a medley of fine dining experiences that create a foodie’s paradise. The villas and condos along the south coast are in perfect proximity to two of the main nighttime hotspots on the island, and the eastern accommodations create nestling havens for the sun and surf-worshippers.

But perhaps your aim is to visit that one personal – and very special – reason. No matter what that may be, we have you covered! Would you prefer to enjoy full pampering services in the privacy of your holiday home or say ‘I do’ on the island’s sand? Or maybe your sporty nature needs to be satisfied, or possibly a history lesson on the island would do the trick. Perhaps this exploration of the island’s culture and history will lead you on a journey of discovering flavors and delicacies that have afforded Barbados star status within the culinary fraternity in the Caribbean.

Whatever your preference, let the Blue Sky Luxury team create the holiday experience you have been longing for, catering to all of your private villa and lifestyle needs. Request a personal chef, or have a yoga session poolside in the comfort of your holiday home. Or, venture out on the most luxurious vessels to grace the blue, glittering waters of the island’s alluring west coast. Whatever your desire, we have a team with the knowledge and experience to tailor your vacation for you from start to finish. We welcome you to explore Barbados, and hope that you will fully enjoy the tease of our beautiful homes and countless activities the island has in store. We are sure that the only thing that will matter is living out your Barbados daydream and experiencing your best holiday yet!

Our Top Reasons to Skip the Hotel and Enjoy a Villa Holiday instead! 

Fun with family and friends. Relaxation, a flexible schedule, a chance to “just be you” and enjoy those who are most special. A unique setting, space, a home away from home. All of this can be enjoyed in a gorgeous holiday home – this is what vacations are made of. More-so, with the emergence of COVID-19, and the need for social distancing, villa vacations offer so much more than a traditional hotel stay and here are our top reasons why.

Stay, Safe

With the emergence of COVID-19, the world has changed. As a result of this, holidaymakers needs and expectations have changed as well. An open buffet with hundreds of strangers around brings a sense of anxiety. Having an entire space for you and your loved ones is an offer that a hotel simply cannot match. An increasing number of travelers are into wellness and villas with private gyms, pools and even movie theaters give guests the freedom to stay, safe and relax.

So Much More than Just a Room with a View

Vacation homes offer you so much more than a room with a view. Space to play, reconnect and make memories to last a lifetime. Villa holidays provide access to a world of one-of-a-kind opportunities. Have you ever dreamed of staying in a fully staffed beachfront home with more than 20 of your nearest and dearest friends? Or on a historic island estate with your family surrounded by tropical gardens? Or in a romantic apartment just steps away from fantastic restaurants, hot spots and white sandy beaches? It is time to stop dreaming and start living. All of these memorable vacations, and many, many more are just a few clicks away.

 

Personal Service … Plus Privacy!

Our experienced team can assist you with choosing the perfect villa from our extensive property listings based on your unique requirements. Ultimately, the villa you choose and all of its amenities becomes your private retreat…there is no need to share with throngs of other guests. To tailor-make your holiday even further, our concierge team of island experts are available to assist with creating your perfect holiday itinerary from the moment you book your home and will also be available to assist you throughout your stay. Many villas come with their staff who look after your every need – it is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that cannot be duplicated! Even holiday homes that are located within condo resorts are more private than hotels, thanks to the spacious designs and beautiful facilities and common areas.

Great Value 

Have you ever considered staying at one of the island’s top villas? Well if you travel as a group, this may very well be your reality! In comparison to hotel rooms with a usual maximum capacity of four persons, several of our villas sleep 10-plus guests. Therefore, traveling as a large group spells more value for money, since the cost is split over more guests at any one time. Additionally, many villas include extra amenities so you can enjoy relaxing at your home away from home rather than heading out daily for restaurant meals and activities.

The Joy of a Flexible Schedule 

Staying at a villa during your island getaway offers the perfect canvas to let your imagination run wild! Unlike hotels which have strict schedules for dining, housekeeping and other basic services, villas give you the luxury of sleeping in late and still enjoying a fantastic breakfast, midnight dips in the pool, as well as all the other perks you need to just go with the flow and enjoy at your own pace. After all, this is your holiday so we want you to enjoy it your way!

 

Kids can be just that…Kids!  

Don’t forget, children are very much welcomed in many of our holiday villas! If you have children traveling with you, you can let the frolicking resume as soon as they arrive at the holiday home, where kids have space to explore. Parents can easily keep an eye on the little ones, and won’t have to worry about their children venturing into restricted areas. Moreover – and probably most importantly – the youngsters won’t have to bridle their fun to avoid interrupting other guests! Preparing their food? Keeping to their nap and meal schedule? Villas have that covered too! After all happy kids mean happy holidays for parents too.

Enjoy an Authentic Barbadian Experience

Whether you choose a holiday home on the island’s south or west coasts, or a quiet retreat further inland, villas offer you a more intimate opportunity to explore the authentic Barbadian experience. Take a stroll to the local convenience store, or stop short and have some refreshing coconut water from a roadside vendor to really get a glimpse of how Barbadians live! Better yet, have your in-villa cook prepare the finest in local cuisine and indulge in the best the island has to offer!

Perfect for Families, Buddymoons & Landmark Celebrations

Our beautiful villas offer spacious rooms and grounds perfect for hosting groups of friends and family! You will be spoilt for options when trying to choose the perfect bedroom for each guest, and will cherish the time spent reconnecting by the sunny pool, sipping lemonade on the terrace or around the dinner table each evening. Villas are the top choice for families and landmark celebrations thanks to stunning venues, absolute privacy and the creation of vibrant memories. But, even after your special day has passed and the event lingers as a dear memory, you can bask in the afterglow with your loved ones at the very place where your memories were made. We invite you to make memories to last a lifetime.
