About the property

Villa near Holetown, Barbados, Caribbean - Superb Location on the West Coast

Nanpa is a three bedroom villa, finished to a very high standard with large open plan ground floor leading onto a spacious private covered patio and private pool.

Patio area provides a tranquil setting for breakfast or dinner, many an enjoyable hour spent in the evening relaxing around the pool with a cold Banks beer watching the fire-flies.

Nanpa is part of a complex of just 28 houses located on the beautiful West Coast of Barbados, (just 1km north of Holetown). This area is known the 'Platinum Coast' which is well justified. The beach is a short walk from Porters Gate. For those who wish to relax at Nanpa then you have the choice of your own private pool. There is also a communal pool and tennis court for use of guests.

Nanpa has been built to a very high standard, fully equipped Italian kitchen with granite work surfaces. Flat screen TV with DVD player (selection of DVD's for guests to view). You can also charge and listen to your iPod with the iPod docking station.

Free WiFi, which is pretty much essential these days and the wifi in my house in Barbados is faster than I get at home, there is also cable TV available for guests.

About paul Owen

Paul and Karen Owen own Nanpa.

This is the second home we have owned in Barbados. Paul is a Boeing 777 Captain for British Airways and

Karen is a professional jewellery and shoe shopper (joke!)

As a family we have been holidaying in Barbados for 25 years, we know the island pretty well! and chose Nanpa for its superb location.

Paul flies out to Barbados with "work" and so keeps a close eye on the property.

We are sure you will be very comfortable if you decide to choose our home in Barbados for your vacation.

We are huge supporter's of our troops and offer a genuine 15% discount to all UK armed forces personnel.

Have a fabulous holiday, wherever you choose to stay.

We had a fantastic holiday, the villa has everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. Paul was so helpful, giving us lots of advice before we travelled. This is a fantastic base to explore Barbados from. The bus stop is a 5 minutes walk, there are 2 rum shacks at the bottom of the road, give them a go, great fun and so cheap. The beach is a 15 minutes stroll, it takes your breath away, we hired sun beds from Freddie, he was brilliant. Everyone is so welcoming and can't do enough for you. We can't wait to go back!! Go find your Barbados.

Perfect with a capital P...

  • 5 of 5

There's not much more positive comments that I can add that previous reviewers haven't said.

5 of us spent 9 nights at Nanpa; unfortunately we had to return to the UK( sigh...).Never mind, we'll be back!

This was my 10th trip to the Caribbean & probabaly the best so far.

Thanks Paul & Karen.

Car: recommended


The fabulous West Coast of Barbados is just a five minute walk away from Porters Gate. The closest beach is along the same stretch of beach as the Glitter Bay Hotel.

A very popular beach used by guests is at Ju Ju's beach bar, great food (v cheap) superb rum punch and cheap sun-beds. Located between Lone Star restaurant and Glitter bay hotel. Drive 2 mins north from P Gate and park to the side of the Seventh Day Adventist church (white with red roof) and walk down to beach. Stunning!


Travel time from the airport is about 30/40 mins depending on traffic. If self drive, aim for Holetown, drive 1km North turn right off coast road into Mango Drive just 100 metres before the Glitter bay hotel.


Holetown 1km South. Beach 5 min walk.

Further Details:

Holetown is only 1km away, has now become the premier town in Barbados, the new "Lime Grove" shopping Pavilion is very impressive! Supermarkets, banks, shops, restaurants and bars are all easily accessible in Holetown. Go to first street on Sunday night! Very busy street party, good fun.
