Overview

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 patio and pool.

Patio area provides a tranquil setting for breakfast or dinner, many an enjoyable hour spent in the evening relaxing around the garden furniture with a cold Banks beer and 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 and cable TV available for guests....essential these days!

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.

Excellent Villa in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We travelled out to Barbados on 10/1/15 and stayed at Nanpa for 2 weeks. We are now classified as almost 'Bajan' as we have travelled to Barbados on 6 previous occasions. We love it and have travelled and stayed all around the island. North, South, East and now West - The platinum coast.

Staying at Nanpa was simply superb! I say this for a number of reasons but probably number 1 was the location. Nanpa is tucked away off the main coastal road and is therefore very quiet. Quiet and yet only walking distance from beautiful beaches and Hometown which offers a variety of shops and restaurants. The platinum coast is probably the place to be on Barbados. We love it all but if you're only considering the one visit then we'd recommend the Platinum coast for all your holiday requirements.

Number 2 reason is Nanpa itself. It has a large open plan living area and beautiful al fresco dining area beside an adequately sized pool. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Think home from home and you'll start to get the picture. Upstairs you have 3 big bedrooms all with balconies and large wet rooms ensuite. I felt like a Roman Emperor showering in the larger of the 3 wet rooms. High ceilings, his and hers sinks, marble and stone all around.. really nice!

As we were a party of 3 (2 adults and 1 child) Nanpa was more than adequately sized for our needs. In fact the extra bedroom came in handy for me when i had one too many Banks Beers one evening!!!!

Nanpa is a terraced house in a gated community. Very quiet all around. Theres a tennis court and a larger swimming pool about 50 meters from Nanpa. We played tennis and were in the community pool quite a few times. We had the pool to ourselves on each occasion. Did I mention it's very quiet?

We hired a car the first week we were there and used it to travel around and purchase our groceries. The second week we done without and just stayed around Nanpa, Hometown and the beaches. Didn't miss the car at all.

So, to summarise. If you're thinking of a holiday in Barbados and don't want the fuss and expense of a hotel. We highly recommend Nanpa.

Happy Holidays

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!

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.
