Amazing beach front property with an great view
I'll just start by saying that the original location I booked was canceled two days before I was planning on leaving to Barbados due to the place was not existing. I frantically looked online and luckily came across the villa seashells. I reached out to Claire and she was able to accommodate my friends and I last minute from the other side of the world (she was in Sydney). When we arrived at the property, althea greeted us. She was extremely helpful and came every day to tidy up. The place is beautiful, located on the beach (quite and secluded) three stories high, we each had our bedroom with a view, balcony, bathroom n large dressing room. Very well done. Thanks again Claire, I will most definitely be back... Hopefully soon!!!
Paradise at Seashells
What a find! We fist came to stay at Seashells three years ago with the family and have returned each year just the two of us. My husband says he won’t stay anywhere else in Barbados! The villa is beautiful, spacious, spotless, very tastefully decorated and the location is stunning. All the bedrooms have wonderful views of the sea and drawing back the curtains in a morning, lying in bed listening to the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach is just bliss. The outside area is very pretty with lots of comfy settees and tables and chairs. We loved watching the sunset whilst sipping our cocktails! There is a plunge pool and barbecue and having the fish market right next door, we barbequed tuna, sword fish and Mahi Mahi for lunch. It is only a few steps down from the patio to the beach for a stroll to Sandy Lane and a swim in the beautiful warm turquoise sea. The villa is also perfectly situated for some of the island’s top restaurants. Daphne’s, Scarlet, The Cliff and The Cliff Beach Club are all within walking distance. Tides, Lone Star and Cin Cin are just a short yellow bus ride away. (The yellow bus ride is an experience not to be missed!). We hired a car and visited St, Nicholas Abbey, Bathsheba, George Washington’s House and The Flower Caves. We would just like to say a huge thank you Claire and David for allowing us to share your beautiful home in Barbados. We love it so much we have already booked for next year!
Another wonderful holiday at Sea Shells Villa
Thank you so much once again David and Claire for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. This was our second visit to Sea shells and we had another wonderful time, the villa was perfect and it was so nice to see David and Althea again who looked after us very well.
We managed to visit St Nicholas abbey this time which was great day out very interesting definitely worth a visit and we managed to explore more of the island but it was lovely to return back home to the fabulous setting of Sea Shells which we hope to return to very soon.

Just wonderful - for us the perfect location
We have stayed here twice so far and we will certainly stay again. The property is wonderful, the open plan ground floor flows into the outside area and the beach. The bedrooms are wonderful, especially the huge master suite, with wonderful views of the beach and sea. The location is perfect for us, walk to superb top end restaurants and local eating places, the fish market, the local bus to hop into Holetown or Speightstown for other eating delights. Some may find the road off putting, but for us it is a plus. We simply love the place and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else on this great island.
Hello: We are happy that you were so pleased with your stay at Seashells. It is always great to hear how our guests spend their time at the villa and site seeing, relaxing, swimming, standup paddling, enjoying the nearby restaurants, etc. Please do consider us again for your Barbados holiday. Thank you!
Seashells is a lovely villa in a stunning location. Situated on Paynes Bay on a beautiful beach we loved being able to walk right along the beach to Sandy Lane each morning. There is a reef directly in front of the villa so you just need to walk approx 200 m to the right if you want to swim.
Two of the island's top restaurants - The Cliff and Daphnes are within walking distance. We enjoyed going to Daphnes for happy hour at 5pm for a great rum punch to watch the sun set.
Other restaurants we would recommend are Tides, Lone Star and The Fish Pot. Jumas at Speightstown is also worth a visit and they provide complimentary transport
The villa is very clean and well appointed. Altea the maid is efficient and David the security guard is very good.
The villa is situated on a main road and next to a fish market. There is noise but it did not bother us. There is also a lot of natural noise - the waves crashing against the beach and the local birds. All fabulous!
We had a lovely week at Seashells and we hope to return.
Our Home Away From Home.
This has been our third stay in Seashells, and it looked even more beautiful than the last time - if that is possible. Some lovely decor touches inside and out, Claire and David have such exquisite taste as well as being wonderful people to deal with. It's like our second home away from home. We love the location because it is easy to get to all the places we want to go without much thought. We absolutely love that it is right on the beach and we walk every morning from Payne's Bay as far as Sandy Lane beach when it is possible depending on the tides. The restaurants here in Barbados are world class. To name a few - Tides, The Cliff, Scarlett, Daphne's, The Lone Star, Cin CIn. All fabulous. We went to El Tiempo for the first time for lunch - only authentic Italian food on the Island - it was Pavarotti's favourite place to be when he visited here many years ago. I think I would like to go there at night because I think it would be more romantic at night. The food was excellent. We also went to another new place up in Speightstown to a place called Jumas for breakfast - it was was very homey and breakfast was served on the deck overlooking the beach which was gorgeous of course with the turquoise water glistening alongside the white sandy beach. The food was delicious. I would recommend it - so give it a try. There is also a bakery across the street with delicious coconut turnovers and many different breads and tarts - very reasonably priced. We did a lot of our own cooking at the villa as it is very well equipped with gadgets, dishes small appliances and always something in the cupboard such as condiments - spices - vinegars etc. We usually end up leaving stuff so the next person can avail of it. There is also a lovely barbecue outside - and a plunge pool if you get overheated. The bed is very comfortable with lovely cotton sheets, lots of lovely towels in the bathroom, and beach towels also. The entrance and gardens on the property are beautiful and there are a couple of coconut trees by the beach gate which are a part of our natural Barbados orchestra here (waves crashing, trees rustling and insects singing) so beautiful. Althea is our House Keeper and she is perfect, she comes in the morning - does a very thorough cleaning and always has a smile - what more could you ask for. We feel so lucky to have found such a perfect villa in a heavenly spot called Barbados. Thank you again Claire and David for making our holiday such a great one.
