Seeing Barbados: Public transportation is excellent in Barbados, but hiring a car for a couple of days is a great way to see Barbados at your own pace. Great sites are Bathsheba, Animal Flower Cave, Harrison's Cave, the East Coast Road, Crane Hotel, Sam Lord's Castle, etc..

Try a Safari, catamaran cruise for snorkeling and swimming with the turtles, or even the Jolly Roger cruise which includes meals and drinks!!

Beaches: Discovery Bay beach allows you to sit and bask in the sun or have fun with the various water sports: Jet Ski, water skiing, snorkeling, boat tours. Access to the Discovery Bay pool and tennis courts can be arranged upon request, a small fee is required by the hotel for the tennis courts.

All beaches are public so you can swim at all the hotel beaches, such as Sandy Lane Hotel, which is just a short walk from the villa.

Mullin’s Bay is a beautiful beach and you could spot a celebrity whilst you are there!!

Beaches on the East Coast are beautiful but swimming can be dangerous, so be careful.

Miami Beach in Christ Church has beautiful powdery sand and waves!!! Great fun for the family!!

Great Vacation at Villa Escape

  • 4 of 5

This was our fifth vacation to Barbados and specifically to Holetown. We brought another couple with us and this was their first trip to the Carribean. Villa Escape was paradise to quote Lee who was travelling with us. It was everything we expected and more. We were six and so enjoyed having the space. My rating is 4 Good because the ceiling fan in two of the bedrooms didn't work although the air conditioners worked fine. But it would have been nice to just have the fan sometimes. The kitchen was well equipped and the BBQ a nice extra. We used it a couple of times. We usually had breakfast and lunch at the Villa and often went out for dinner. Georgiana, our housekeeper, took great care of us. She is a gem and it was wonderful to see her again. Villa Escape is close to the grocery store and after our initial shopping trip, which we had delivered by taxi, we just walked over whenever we needed something. There is also a nice fruit stand just aorund the corner. It is also close to many great restaurants, both low and high priced. We were able to use the beach at Discovery Bay and rent beach chairs at a very reasonable rate. The villa was very clean and has many security features. We felt very safe there. The Clark's (the owners) were extremely helpful and provided lots of information. I would definitely recommend Villa Escape if you want something a little different than the all inclusive. We will definitely be reserving Villa Escape again

Owner's Response: We are very pleased to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay in beautiful Barbados and our property in particular. We have taken note of the fan situation and will take measures to correct the issue. Thankfully we have air conditioning units in the bedrooms and our guests were not inconvenienced. Customer service and satisfaction is our top priority. Regards Donna

Large, well positioned villa.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks over the xmas and new year at the villa . The villa meet all our needs during the festive stay. Good air conditioned rooms, quick wifi and computer access added to this.

The villa was kept clean and tidy by Georgie the housekeeper who was very friendly and helpful.

The villa was very close to the beach,Discovery Bay Hotel, and for a bar tab we could use there facilities.

There are plenty of very good restaurants within walking distance to suit all price ranges and the quality of the food on the whole was excellent.

The bus stop was very close to the villa and we used this on many island excursions.

We particularly liked Mullins Bay but all the beaches along this stretch were beautiful.

We would recommend this property to friends and family and we hope to return very soon.

Barbados Villa Escape for a perfect Caribbean Vaca

  • 5 of 5

Villa Escape in Holetown, Barbados provided the perfect accommodations for my family of five during our recent Christmas holiday on the island. The Villa was clean, spacious and perfectly located. The villa is a short walk to the most beautiful beaches on the island, excellent restaurants and shopping.While centrally located in Holetown with access to all you need, the villa also provided a private sanctuary to unwind and enjoy our holiday. We looked forward to our morning breakfast on the gated terrace and daily visits from green monkeys and hummingbirds. We could even pick our own mangoes from the trees on the property. The highlight of the property is Georgiana, who maintains the property and ensured we came home to a clean villa each day. In addition to ensuring the upkeep of the villa, she brought us fruit and directed us to local food and attractions that were outstanding. I would recommend this villa to anyone traveling to Barbados.

Great Home in Busy Holetown.

  • 4 of 5

This large house is well-situated in the nice town of Holetown. Minutes from the beach, cafes, grocery stores, and restaurants, you can walk everywhere. I suggest to rent a car for the week through the owner's contacts. They are friendly and helpful. We rented a Moke and explored the island easily. Crane Beach is a must!

I have only 2 complaints. The first would be the lack of wireless in the house although I went to the Discovery Bay Hotel, Bellairs Research Institute, and the LimeGrove shopping area for the wireless hotspots. The second complaint is that it is a little noisy at night and early morning with the cars and soccer games in the park behind the house. On the other hand, I did enjoy blending in to the way of life there. You are not isolated like in a resort. You are living with the Bajans!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay at Villa Escape. The house is quite spacious with lots of outdoor room as well. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed and took advantage of the proximity to Holetown. We do appreciate being within walking distance of a variety of businesses and services. Hearing that you received great service from the rental car company we suggested is great to know. We don't offer internet access. However, we will look into providing this service in the near future as we realize it has become a standard. As an off resort property, in the midst of a mix of tourist and local homes, it is harder to control surrounding activity. We are sorry to hear that some part of your vacation experience was not satisfactory. However, we do appreciate that your overall stay was positive and enjoyable. Thank you for choosing Villa Escape as your home away from home while in Barbados. Regards from the Vila Escape Team

OMG! This place was spacious! The best mangos - There was a large mango tree in the frontyard -we ate fresh mangoes daily, and prepared smoothies. It was the perfect place for our group to stay - We enjoyed our stay immensely. We were close to the beach - A bus ride away to various other pristine beaches, walking distance to restaurants, my favorite "Just Grillin" excellent fish dinners - A most go to eat! Mews is a good breakfast place to eat. You are in walking distance to Limegrove(favorite club locals hang out) fantastic music - Shopping malls, and not far from Westmoreland a beautiful golf course. I will be back! Many thanks to the staff at Villa escape in making our stay enjoyable.

One of the best holidays

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about Villa Escape is its location. Secluded garden in the middle of Holetown. Nobody disturb you but you are still just a walk away from everything. Bus stop around the corner linked us with everything we wanted to see in Barbados.

House was clean and had lots of space. Actually in real life it looks better and bigger than on the photos. Since we came from cold winter - our favorite place was definitely the terrace. Barbados is quite expensive but fully equipped kitchen did let us cook our own meals.

Greetings to Georgiana, our kind and helpful housekeeper.
