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.

Your friends at Blue Sky Luxury

Dear friends, 

It is clear that the best defense against this virus is to stop it from spreading.  To do that we must stay ahead of the spread by limiting and even stopping all contact.  To protect us, you, Barbados and the world we are doing our part.  We are now fully virtual everywhere we can be.  Nearly two weeks ago we transitioned our staff complement to ‘work from home’ arrangements.  Last week we had 100% compliance.  All office systems are up and running and all staff can fully function remotely.  We are still open for business in the sense that whatever can be done without physically being there at our office, we are doing.  We couldn’t be more proud of the way our team has pulled together to make the virtual adjustment in such a short period of time.   

Many countries are wishing that they had moved earlier.  Last weekend restrictions came into effect and then last night, further restrictions were deemed necessary.  In both cases we were ahead of the required mandates and we intend to stay ahead so that we can serve you with total confidence. Everyone is reachable by telephone, email and mobile.  Property managers have new robust protocols for visits to properties both residential and commercial for essential and security reasons only.  Staff in the properties have separate protocols as well and are keeping the curfew.  Valuers are completing engagements where site visits had been completed and all reports are now delivered digitally.  Property showings for brokerage are no longer possible, although the new video walk throughs are available for many listings and this reduces the number of properties you need to visit in person when the restrictions are lifted.  Our holiday rentals division is the most impacted at this point and we miss our guests.  But they will be back and we will be here, stronger and better.

Staying ahead of the curve is in our DNA.  We hope you understand and appreciate the actions we have taken and we look forward to working with you in this temporary virtual world but more importantly to meeting you in person in the post COVID-19 world.

Stay safe, stay strong, stay positive, stay connected.

 

The team at Blue Sky Luxury.

It was truly a pleasure to celebrate with our valued clients and friends in an effort to thank them for their continued support.

It goes without saying that our team enjoys a close relationship with our owners and our guests mean the world to us. As a full service vacation rentals company we often share client relationships with our sister company Terra Luxury and their team was on hand to mix and mingle as well. Sea Shed provided an excellent venue and our guests had an excellent time.  A delectable selected of Sea Shed fishcakes, Beef Tartare and their signature Margherita Mina Pizzas were available to nibble on.

We’re excited to continue to work with our clients and to support our guests in 2020. We relish any reason to celebrate, spend time and truly extend a heartfelt thank you.

Getting Here

Barbados is very easily reachable from most countries in the world. The Grantley Adams International Airport offers direct links to a variety of markets, and several major hub destinations. The frequency of international flights ensures that you can  travel with ease. Popular airlines like Jet Blue with the addition of their premium flight option complements British carriers. The recent addition of a direct flight from Panama to Barbados was a historic partnership for the island. The island also features many additional seasonal routes to the UK and Europe during the peak season.

Choice of Accommodation

The range of accommodation on offer in Barbados has something for everyone. From luxury hotels to the more budget conscious offerings with value as a priority, travellers can choose their ideal holiday experience. A growing number of hotels are offering all-inclusive options with the completion of planned branded hotels, the options in this segment would be further enhanced. Complementing this range of hotels is a diverse range of vacation rental properties, with on-island providers – like our sister company Blue Sky Luxury – offering several staffed and managed homes and private estates, and modern beachfront apartments. Online marketplaces round out the choice of offerings to ensure that there is truly something for everyone. It’s no wonder Barbados has the highest repeat visitor percentage in the region at 39%.

Transport & Infrastructure
The paved road network along with the island’s relatively flat terrain and extensive public transport, make Barbados’ infrastructure one of the best in the region. The ABC Highway stands out as a vital route from the airport to the west coast and points along the south coast. The island’s modern telecoms options ensure that visitors are never out of touch with their home base. This extends to the island-wide cellular offering which facilitates the use of navigation apps which makes travel around the island easier.

Things to Do

When it comes to sun, sea, and sand, the Caribbean as a region offers this in abundance, and while Barbados is regularly recognised for having some of the region’s best beaches, there is so much more on offer to visitors and residents. These include: Bushy Park Barbados, the only Grade 3 FIA racing circuit in the Caribbean; the Garrison Savannah, a six-furlong grass horse-racing course which hosts the Barbados Gold Cup, one of the most prestigious thoroughbred classic horse race events in the Eastern Caribbean; a variety of polo fields which host several tournaments with international teams competing during the January to May season, and golf courses ranging from the affordable to the exclusive and many in between, several designed by internationally renowned course architects. Once the sun goes down, Barbados continues to shine, with world class restaurants and nightlife that include international hospitality brands like Nikki Beach.
