We have been running our own business in the UK for the past 15 years; on a trip to Barbados in 2013 we were so taken by the Island and its people that we bought a plot of land less than 100 yards from where we were staying and just off the platinum coast, only a few hundred yards from the famous Mullins Beach. In 2014 we engaged local architect Jeremy Gunn of Gillespie & Steel who designed a stunning contemporary villa with a focus on outdoor living. The build completed in 2016 and we now visit the Island as often as we can. Steve & Heather
Owner purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Owner chose Gibbes
The property was designed to maximise indoor / outdoor living; set in Gibbs Glade close to the platinum coast it has been designed to take maximum advantage of the gentle trade winds that come down the valley. Its open plan design, with high cantilevered ceilings and spacious rooms optimise the cooling effects of the gentle breeze. The flying roof extending over the main pool terrace and pool provides shade at the peak of the day, while the Great Room (approximately 1000 square feet) with patio doors which open the full width of the room has more than fulfilled the design expectations of inside outside living. If the gentle breeze fails then the Great Room is cooled by a large feature 'Big Ass' fan.
What makes this Villa unique
The interior has been tastefully designed by local Interior Designers Archers Hall and complements and enhances the stunning architectural design. The private gardens, designed and created by Nature Care, combine the rich colours of the local fauna and flora with all the benefits of a tropical garden. Lighting brings out the best of the gardens after dark. A bespoke, contemporary Gazebo set alongside the pool provides a wonderful venue to enjoy the warm tropical evenings or relax from the sun during the heat of the day.

Just as it appears!
This home is stunning, comfortable and worth the stay. Beds and pillows off the chart comfortable. Host very easy to work with. Pool and all spaces are just as they appear in pictures. We enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners at the table with the doors wide open. A guest asked if we were movie stars...because the place is so spectacular. We were 4 couples and the place has spots to withdraw to. Beach is close, 3 minute walk. You will not be disappointed with this choice!
Many thanks for your review of No.4... we hope that you had a great holiday in beautiful Barbados.
A Wonderful Family Celebration !
It’s 20 years since we visited Barbados ! My eldest daughter was 10 and now a glowing 30 year old engaged one ( happened on the eve before we travelled ).
Gibbes Glade was a perfect place for us to celebrate . The villa is extremely comfortable and the combination of location and facilities is perfect for families and groups.
Well done Heather we had the optimal vacation.
Delighted that you enjoyed your stay and many congratulations to your daughter.
Number 4 Gibbs Glade is a beautiful property and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends. The pool area was a godsend as due to the weather most of the beaches in the vicinity were unusable. The house is so well equipped and everything is in excellent condition. We travelled as a party of 4 couples and had plenty of space . Credit where credit is due your home is stunning and all 8 of us had a fantastic time !!!
Thank you so much for your kind comments - we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our Island home.
Our birthday celebration was so special just by staying at this home! We were a party of 7 adults and 1 baby and the house was set up perfectly to accommodate all of us! We have rented many houses from home away and this was by far the best and a true HOME. Heather, the owner is very quick to answer any questions you may have and so accommodating she even purchased a high chair for our stay! Stacia, the housekeeper, or should i say a new friend, is so nice and lovely, I can’t say enough about how amazing she is. The house is actually nicer than the pictures and even the linens are top notch. We have 2 chefs in the family and ate in every meal, and the house was stocked with every pot and utensils you could want. We obviously had a great time and experience and I can’t thank Heather and Stacia enough. STAY HERE!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments... it was a pleasure having you and your family as guests.
Beautiful home with just a short walk to lovely beaches
If you are looking for a great 4 bedroom home on a sun drenched island you can't go wrong here. Beach access is important and it is just a short walk away but sun and pool are most important to us and our family loved it. Frankly, the Villas right on the beach are either in some state of disrepair or ridiculously expensive so we made the right choice! The owners, Heather and Steve, worked with us in the first couple days to get a couple electrical issues worked out but everything went smoothly after that. The great room is beautiful with huge folding doors to make the room a part of the outside pool and patio. The Villa is effectively new so bathrooms, appliances, air conditioning all worked perfectly. We had no mosquitoes which was a pleasant surprise but you will see many centipedes (not sure if it is seasonal issue) - mostly in the great room as they can come in under the big doors. Not a big deal at all - just sweep them up each morning. Even the little ones with us just made a game of it (great pictures of them doing "worm patrol"). Although the pool is routinely cleaned weekly, and they will call if it needs it between times, we just asked Stacia the housekeeper to give us access to the pool vacuum hose and we vacuumed the pool daily. We were a little apprehensive about the drive to the Villa since our arrival time was close to dark but between Heather's VERY thorough directions and Google Maps we had no driving issues at all. The Villa is an easy drive to more beaches, the village of Holetown which has shopping, stores (beautiful new Masseys grocery) and restaurants. Gotta be on the lookout for pedestrians as there are many areas where the roads are narrow and it can be tough to see people standing close to the berm. Slow down, pay attention, and let someone else in the vehicle navigate for you....definitely cannot be distracted on the roads! Especially true for those of us not used to driving on the left! This was our first time on Barbados so I cannot say we know the restaurant scene at all but we enjoyed Just Grillin' with it's laid back feel, Mullins Beach Bar (great burgers) and the Fish Pot on the upper end of things. We also found a couple places that we won't bother with again but there are plenty of places we didn't get a chance to try and we will look forward to exploring more of them on our next visit! Enjoy!
PS - Turn off the big fan in the great room if you use the alarm, other wise you may set off a false alarm like we did!
We stayed at 4 Gibbs Glade with our daughter her husband and two children in October, we had a wonderful time the house had everything we needed great outside area and spacious living area. Close to Mullins beach we would love to go back. Brenda & Steve
