We spent and incredible week at Joias with our family, and our friends family. In all we had 6 kids under the age of 10, and everyone had more than enough room. The kids loved the pool, and being on the water was great- the kids loved seeing all of the Sea Turtles! South Point surf break was 200 yards down the beach from the house, and Freights Bay was a short drive/long walk (a mile or so). Miami Beach also a short drive away, and it was nice to have a beach with some shade to keep the kids out of the sun. Oistins Fish Market is close by as well, and in addition to the Friday Night Fish Fry, it was a great place to pick up a fresh catch to grill up at Joias!
We honestly couldn't have had a better time, and look forward to coming back again soon!
The house is located very close to the sea and has a stunning, breathtaking ocean view. Beautifully renovated house with all necessities. Very nice pool and sundeck. Close to beaches and activities.
We have been in the travel industry, selling holidays of all description, for over 35 years. During that time we have never found a villa so well positioned on the water's edge with perfect, uninterupted views of the sea and sunset; and set in a beautifully maintained gardens.
The accommodation itself is fantastic, with five large en-suite bedrooms with scope for more. Whether you are just two couples or five, this property on the southern tip of Barbados is perfect for just relaxing, going to the swimming beach (nearby), sightseeing or playing golf. This is one of the few properties to which we would have no hesitation to return.
Too often, villa details exaggerate the views or facilities or omit the odd drawback but that is most definitely not the case here. Joias is set in the most stunning location at the southern tip of the island with ocean views and a poolside terrace that are simply unforgettable. The well-equipped house is large enough to afford everyone plenty of privacy and chill-out comforts and the nearby beaches are in easy walking distance. If you get tired of rum punches by the pool at sunset, the Surfer's Bar (10-minute walk) is a fun alternative and Sunday evening's live music sessions are well worth a visit. We also loved the 15-minute transfer time from the airport and proximity to the fish market at Oistins as well as the challenges of the Barbados Golf Club. Memorable!
We have returned from a wonderful 11 days at Joias. Idyllic. A stunning property in a magical location. Whether the sun is coming up or going down your reserved seating is guaranteed. A wonderfully short distance from Grantley Adams Airport and equally very convenient for all local amenities. Sharon, the housekeeper, could not me more helpful, always there, always smiling. Our morning walks, either to Surfer's Beach or Miami Beach were one of the many highlights of our stay. There are too many highlights to mention, you will just have to go and find out for yourselves. Please play Golf, please be a Tourist, there is just so much to do and see. Have fun. Do not forget eat, drink and be happy, a better place you could not find.
This villa is perfect in every way - situation, luxury, comfort, cleanliness, accessibility, to say nothing of the wonderful view and glorious sound of the ocean. There are absolutely no downsides whatsoever, and I can't wait to go back!!
We had a very enjoyable 2 week holiday with our 2 daughters. Joias is a very large spacious home overlooking the sea.Its furnished to a very high standard with every modern convenience you could need, wireless Internet over most of the house, a large modern kitchen with all the necessary appliances, large fridge & freezer & ice making machine etc.
Friends joined us for one of the weeks with their 4 daughters and the house was more than spacious to cope with10 guests.There is ample dinning & seating area on the veranda for all guests as well as around the pool & inside the home.
The pool is one of the highlights of the home, set within the beautiful garden. It's located right next to the rocky beach, the water temperature remains perfect all day but is equally stunning flood lit at night.
The home is well maintained by a gardener, pool man & the 'highlight' Sharon, the housekeeper who comes 3 times a week & waves her magic wand over the house doing all laundry & general house cleaning.
The house is located on the Southern point of the island a few minutes drive away from Miami Beach,a white sandy palm tree lined beach where the sea water temperature is like a luke warm bath.
Other places to visit
Oistins on Friday evenings for 'Fry night' a great place for Bajan & food, music & atmosphere.

To summarise as our eldest daughter said "What a perfect house, perfect beach, perfect view, & a perfect Sharon -the housekeeper!"
