This delightful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Villa is situated in Sunset Crest, a central location in St. James on the famous west coast. It is nestled in large tranquil private, garden and yet it is only 5 minutes away from The Beach House, with large 50 ft pool, bar and restaurant, which is fully available to Palm Villa guests.
The villa has a lovely double patio area for relaxing and dining while the lounge provides comfortable seating (two seater and three seater settees with chair) so you can choose your 'downtime' area! French doors lead you onto the patio and there is large settee and rattan chairs and lovely breeze to keep you cool. The villa has everything to meet your needs - Direct TV, DVD, stereo, Wi-Fi and fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, cooker, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and all necessary crockery and utensils.
The bedrooms are both en-suite and are light and airy with comfortable king size beds. Both have overhead ceiling fans and AC for your comfort. A third bedroom is available with twin beds.
Fabulous white sandy beaches are 5 minutes walking distance from the villa and wind along the coastline both north and south. As well as tourist attractions such as tropical gardens, safari jeep tours, horse riding, cruises, catamaran trips, water sports, golf, tennis, duty free shopping - the area has everything you could possibly want and more! With so many places of interest and excursions on offer it's hard to decide where to go and what to do! Car hire is simple and easy - to visit the rugged east coast, which is wild and beatuiful and very different to the tranquil west coast
Holetown is the central hub of activity with its bars, restaurants and renown 'First Street'. Banks, supermarket and the new Lime Grove development are right on the doorstep, hosting international fashion brands (for duty free shopping) and restaurants to tempt every taste.
Access to The Beach House with 50ft pool and loungers plus bar/restaurant facilities, are available to the guests of Palm Villa
The property was everything that website said it was - and more. Palm Villa is very spacious with seating areas to suit everyone whether you prefer sun or shade or the comfort of a lovely sitting room. Not only had much thought gone into providing everything you could possibly need, but it was also so tastefully furnished throughout. The bed was more comfortable than ours at home! Linda could not have been more helpful beforehand and we knew was always on hand if we had any queries whilst on holiday - not that we had. The villa is superbly located for easy access to the beach, stores, restaurants and bars. We used the excellent bus service to travel to Bridgetown, Speightstown and over to Bathsheba on the east coast (which is a must to see the difference in the east and west coasts). We also thoroughly enjoyed walking all around the local area with its manicured golf courses and 'over the top' mansions and gardens. The final word must go to the green monkeys who appeared most days to eat fruit off the trees and generally provide the most wonderful photo opportunities! A holiday to remember for ever - and probably repeat!
We were really surprised how well-laid out and equipped the villa was. It has a real homely feel. It worked well for us with our two teenage daughters having a room of their own.
The villa is located in a lovely area, a short walk to the beach, cafe and restaurants. It's a bonus having use of the hotel pool next door as well as the Beach House. We look forward to returning.
Palm Villa is a beautifully presented villa, 5 minutes walk from local shops and less than 10 minutes from beautiful Bajan beaches, shops and restaurants in the centre of Holetown. The villa is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need (the aircon was a godsend) and very comfortable - lots of space, lots of different areas to sit in according to time of day, mood and noisy teenagers... We really felt at home here.
The hotel pool next door was very handy - a lovely place to cool off at the end of a hot day.
We had a real treat one morning when a troupe of monkeys casually wafted past us at breakfast on the rear terrace, climbed onto the roof and reappeared in the trees at the front of the property. They regarded us as curiously as we watched them. We felt like we were the zoo animals.
Linda and her team (Janice and David the taxi) were outstanding. Linda gave us lots of information prior to our trip and patiently answered all our questions - it was our first trip to Barbados.
Our journey out there was a bit problematic as we were diverted to St. Lucia with the possibility of staying there overnight. What of our taxi driver waiting for us in Barbados? Janice waiting for us at the villa? Although it was late in England Linda was on the case and sorted everything out for us. When we finally landed in Barbados David was there with a welcoming smile to transport us to Palm Villa, where the lovely Janice was waiting to show us round.
We had other problems whilst on holiday - an abscess in a tooth, an infected toe - and Linda was on the end of the phone, talking to her local contacts trying to find the best care for us. Thank you so much Linda - we hope your other guests are not so problematic.
Janice was fantastic - she was there when we needed her, but not when we didn't.
Our favourite restaurants were Surfside - great cocktails, food, sunsets and friendly waitresses (and reasonably priced) - and The Beach House - stunning location and food - not quite so cheap but friendly staff - our daughter enjoyed the impromptu napkin folding masterclass!
If you fancy swimming with turtles try 'Cliff Sharker'. The owner, Charles, will make it an experience not to be missed. Based on the south coast it is a bit of a drive early in the morning (13 miles) but well worth the effort.
We had a fantastic 2 weeks in Barbados and in Palm Villa. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday - wish we could have stayed longer.
My friend and I had the most amazing holiday out in Barbados for two weeks in May this year. Having been to Barbados several times I knew the area well, Sweet Palm is perfectly situated in a nice quiet neighbourhood within easy walking distance of all the local beaches and restaurants. The Villa is brilliantly equipped with everything you need to cook should you want to eat at home. The BBQ was great and easy to use and the area outside is lovely for dinning outside under cover, with the sound of the local tree frogs as background music! The washing machine and dryer was brilliant to have and was the only holiday that I have had that I could pack light and take clothes home clean....Great! Linda is so helpful and is really brilliant at communicating with you both before, during and after your stay. I can't recommend this Villa and Linda highly enough and I am definitely returning for my break next year.
"Sweet Palm" is a quiet oasis from the outdoor sitting room and the dining patio to the comfortable bedrooms and well equipped kitchen.
It is just a pleasant walk away from the beach and shopping center. A dip in the next door pool is a extra bonus at the end of a great afternoons activities.
I hightly recommend this villa rental
We were guests at Sweet Palms for two lovely weeks in February 2013.
We arrived very late on a Friday evening and were greeted by Janice, the housekeeper. Janice showed us around the house and made us feel very at home and comfortable. To our surprise Janice returns twice a week to clean, straighten up, wash the bath towels and change the sheets if necessary – this was a bonus that we didn’t know about!!
Sweet Palms is everything the pictures show and even more. Before I even walked up that path that first evening I knew that I was going to love it. The house is in a very friendly, quiet and safe neighborhood. All the rooms are spacious from the bedrooms to the living room to both of the outside sitting areas. There is WI-FI for those of you who have an IPad or a Laptop and also a CD player with a small library of movies to watch on those evenings you decide to spend at home. The one thing that was important to me was the lighting in the bedrooms so I was able to read my book – and the lighting was great in both rooms for this.
There are ample large beach towels that are there to take to the beach. The kitchen is well equipped and there is also a washer and a dryer which we took advantage of.
Two of the days we were there we were entertained by a family of the island’s mischievous monkeys. So, don’t be surprised if you see them at some time in the front or backyard while you are there. They are very curious!
Linda, the owner, is wonderful to work with and so responsive with any request or problem you may have.
We loved it so much we have made our reservations for next year the same time.
Some Tips and Suggestions:
-Go to Bottoms Bay Beach on the east coast. About a 45 minute drive and there are chairs to rent for $7.50. Pack a lunch and enjoy the beauty of this beach. Not crowded at all. Worth the trip.
-For those who like to do yoga….about 3 minutes from Sweet Palms is a great studio to practice yoga – “Sunshine Kula Yoga Studio”
-Go to Zaccio’s for dinner and you must have their “warm bread pudding” for dessert. Right on the water so the view is spectacular at sunset. Make reservations.
-Go for a late lunch at the RoundHouse Restaurant in Bathsheba right up from Bottom’s Bay. View is spectacular and very good reasonable food.
-Café Bar Carizma in the Chattel Village - reserve a table for their Tapas evening when they have live music.
-Café Indigo - for both breakfast and dinner - great place!
