Self catering villas in Barbados

We may be biased but we believe that choosing a self catering villa has plenty of strong advantages over a Hotel.

Here at West Rock Villas our charming & characterful hideaways are full of imagination - you can make your holiday a Boutique Retreat, for that Romantic Getaway or a Family Holiday.

Extra Value for Money:-

Usually works out to be more cost effective than a Hotel.  Here at West Rock Villas we have two bedroom individual villas, so if you are travelling as a family or a group, you don’t have to pay for multiple individual rooms as you would in a Hotel.

Doing your own shopping & cooking your own meals make your holiday more cost effective.  The local Massey’s Supermarket (5 minutes drive away) offers a wide range of goods a pharmacy & a large selection of ‘Waitrose’ options.

Having a fully equipped, new & modern kitchen to prepare healthy meals.  Controlling the ingredients, portions & cooking methods for those who have special dietary requirements.  Your own culinary creations made from local products from local markets result in more savings on restaurant bills!

Washing machines mean you don’t have to pay for dry cleaning as you would in a Hotel.  Here at West Rock Villas our two bedroom villas offer these & certainly come in handy if you plan on getting messy exploring the beaches and many outdoor activities Barbados has to offer!

Extra Space:-

Here at West Rock Villas a generous amount of space is available throughout considering the petite nature of these cosy villas, ideal if travelling with friends & family. Our two bedroom villas offer a living/dining area you can enjoy together & separate bedrooms giving you privacy.  If you want fresh air without going too far, you can enjoy the stunning views form your private terrace or the shared area around the pool.

For those with little ones, there is surely nothing more depressing than putting them to bed @ 7 pm only to then have to tiptoe around the Hotel room in fear of waking them up!  Here at West Rock Villas your little ones can be tucked up in bed enjoying a good nights sleep, whilst you are sat in the living area catching a movie on T.V., or on the terrace having dinner enjoying your evening!

Families who wish to bring along Grandparents could also rent a one bed villa close by, allowing own personal space with fully equipped kitchen, lounge area, separate bedroom & walk-in shower, all on one level!  There is even a world class Golf Course a ‘stones throw away’ for practising that Golf swing!

Extra Flexibility`;-

From space to mealtimes, West Rock Villas offer Freedom & Independence that a Hotel can not.  Our two bedroom villas are equipped with the necessary appliances should you want to make popcorn in the middle of the night!, microwave leftovers, bake cookies or wash your clothes after a day at the beach!  You can eat what you want when you want!

Kids in bed, parents can enjoy a relaxing time together & families who wish to bring along Grandparents could also rent a one bed villa close by.

You get a greater understanding of the local culture & way of life, an experience that you just wouldn’t get to enjoy as much in a Hotel!

If you are holidaying with young children & infants here at West Rock Villas we can offer you some of the equipment that you will need from a travel cot, high chair, changing mat & baby bath to the plastic tableware provided for children.

If you do choose to hire a car, which we strongly recommend, car hire companies offer children's car seats.  This allows you to travel around the island and visits lots of things to do rather than staying in the same Hotel & beach for the whole holiday, giving you great quality time with the kids!

It is our absolute pleasure to introduce ourselves as Paul & Lorraine from the UK, & to welcome you to West Rock Villas. We have been visiting Barbados for many years with our children & now grandchildren. So along with our love for this beautiful island, our travel experience in the aviation industry & property development knowledge, we have created this ‘Special Place to Be’! We wanted to provide something a little different, but with the essence of a traditional Barbadian ‘Chattel’ house & contemporary stylish interiors.
