Joias is a large house (approx 7,500sqft) comfortably accommodating up to 10 people. The layout is ideal for large parties or for two families sharing with 5 large air-conditioned bedrooms - 3 doubles, each with en-suite facilities, and 2 twin bedded rooms sharing a communicating bathroom. Joias is right on the ocean enjoying 180º panoramic sea views. It is set in lovely tropical gardens with a beautiful swimming pool and deck area. The house has a wonderful veranda overlooking the sea, perfect for dining and relaxing - and turtle watching! There's a well equipped kitchen, spacious living areas, TV, Broadband and Wifi access. The high vaulted ceilings and polished wood floors give Joias a distinct 'colonial' feel. Outside, everyone can find a quiet place to relax - in the gardens or gazebo, on the sun deck, by the swimming pool or on the veranda. The setting is so beautiful that the picturesque gazebo has been used by several guests as the venue for their wedding.

About Mrs Anne Gilbert
We are based in the UK but our family has owned property in Barbados for many years and so we have visited the island regularly over the last 30 years. We bought Joias in 2009 and over the last 8 years we have carried out major refurbishments to the property so that it is now a very comfortable 'home from home'.
Mrs Anne Gilbert purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Mrs Anne Gilbert chose Atlantic Shores
We love the South Coast area because there are lovely sandy beaches, waves and plenty of opportunities for surfing, wind and kite surfing and sailing. The West Coast is lined with hotels and, whilst the sea is very calm there, the beaches tend to be narrow and often crowded. Joias is right on the sea, so you go to sleep to the sound of the waves, yet it is only a mile and a half south of Oistins for shopping and banks, close to beautiful Miami beach, and only 20 minutes drive from the airport; so there are no long transfers and you can start relaxing as soon as you land!
What makes this Villa unique
Our maid, Sharon, comes 3 days a week to do all the cleaning and your laundry, and we have excellent local agents who are on hand to give any additional help you may require.

Outstanding Barbados Property
Our family, of 10 adults, was privileged to stat and enjoy a 7 day stay at this beautifully situated and maintained home. The home offers stunning views of the sea from the pool deck, the verandas and the surrounding well maintained property and gardens.
The home itself, offers every possible amenity within. From an excellently appointed and functional kitchen, to the beautifully furnished and decorated living, dining and bedrooms.
The cleanliness of the home is superior, due to the efforts of Sharon the maid. Sharon's wonderful personality, quiet demeanor and willingness to offer assistance and advice, further enhanced our enjoyment of our stay.
The local property manager offered to provided transportation and shopping assistance prior to our arrival, and maintained constant contact during our stay, to ensure that our every need was met.
Communications with the property owner were always cordial, prompt and immensely informative.
All in all, our family enjoyed a carefree, relaxing vacation at Joias. Thank you for sharing this piece of paradise with us. We will be returning, without hesitation, very soon.
It is always great to receive such a positive review. Joias villa is much loved by everyone - our guests, our staff and us, the owners! We have been receiving lovely reviews for many years now which reflects the time and care taken to keep the amenities in tip top condition.
Villa girls vacation
Joias is the perfect setting for a large group. The villa offers plenty of space for everyone both indoors and outdoors. The veranda with outdoor eating was our favorite gathering spot. The pool area is so comfortable with all the furniture and an incredible view day or night. Five star accommodations!
Villa girls trip.
Incredible villa! The view and sound of the ocean are right in front of you at all times. Best vacation. Will definitely return.
Fantastic location, beautiful house
We spent a lovely week at Joias in early March. The house is beautiful with delightful views of the sea. The house and gardens are very well maintained and the location is walking distance from the Oistins fish fry and a lovely swimming beach.
We spent a large part of the week playing at some fantastic golf courses- the Barbados golf club being only a five minute drive away and Apes hill further north of the island had stunning views.
We would recommend hiring a car to get the most from your stay as there are lots of lovely beaches and restaurants to explore.
Would highly recommend and will hopefully be going back soon!
Barbados at its best
If you want privacy, space for friends & family & views to die for then this villa has to be your destination. Joias is designed perfectly for outdoor living & whether it is lying by the pool or enjoying the rum punches at sundown, the sound of the waves breaking reminds you constantly that you are in a special place. Not only did Sharon look after us & the house exceptionally well but on special request, she produces a delicious curry, which we would recommend. The south coast is very well served with excellent restaurants but our party also enjoyed several terrace BBQs of fresh fish from the local market. The younger members took full advantage of the surfing opportunities at the nearby Miami beach which they rated as far preferable to the more populous tourist beaches on the west coast. All in all, difficult to fault Joias. Thanks for a great stay.
Superior property in a stunning location.
We visited with family and friends to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. This is a fantastic property with plenty of space for a large party, Sharon the maid keeps the whole place clean and ship shape and the local agent was very professional, arranging groceries, airport transfers and was even arranged the delivery of a cot at short notice. The agent also arranged the hire of a car that was delivered direct to the property....totally stress free, Bajan style!
Joias Villa is in in a setting that is simply stunning, right on the coast watching the turtles in the sea and waves crashing in on the shore, amazing!
Its very near Oistins, the local town with bars and restaurants nearby. Its also convenient for surfing and sunbathing beaches.
We hired a local chef one night to prepare a typical Bajan meal for our party and he had plenty of space to prepare and we dined out on the terraces, fantastic!
Highly recomended, we will definitely be booking this again.

Special interest holidays:
Surfing: the South Coast of Barbados is by far the best area for every type of surfing and Joias is ideally placed. Surf schools offering kite and wind surfing, and paddle boarding are all available within a mile of Joias.
Deep sea fishing: numerous options are available at the Careenage in Bridgetown, 30 minutes away.
Tennis: 5 all weather courts are available to hire at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex ( 25 minutes away).
Sailing Cruises: day trips, normally fully catered are also available at the Careenage. Sail up the West Coast and enjoy stops for swimming, snorkelling and turtle watching.
The shoreline outside the property is reef and amazing for turtle watching but the best swimming is at beautiful Miami Beach just 5 mins drive away. Surfers Bay is another nearby beach (5 mins) and a major windsurfing base.
Other Southern beaches include Worthing and Dover ( 15 mins) whilst round the coast to the South East of the island, trips to Bottom Bay, Foul Bay and the extraordinarily beautiful East Coast are well worthwhile.
Joias is on the South Coast, about a mile and a half south of Oistins close to beautiful Miami beach, and only 20 minutes drive from the airport; so there are no long transfers and you can start relaxing as soon as you land!
