Gibbes is one of those villas that will take your breath away. Beautiful flowering plants and tall tropical palms surround extensive open areas of lawn where you can pull up a lounger and rest under their shade indulging in a good novel.

All that is required on your part is to eat, sleep, swim, relax, watch satellite TV, walk on stunning tropical beaches and have the most relaxing holiday of your life. The tropical gardens are ideal to host parties, garden wedding ceremonies and receptions for family groups or even mini-conferences, mixing business with pleasure on the stunning island of Barbados.
Gibbes House is one of the most distinctive Barbados villas on the West coast. Situated amongst tropical gardens, this is Barbados accommodation at its best.
This former Residence of the Brazilian Ambassador encapsulates the essence of the Caribbean in plantation-style elegance. Tastefully furnished with four en suite bedrooms all with air conditioning. It is set apart from other Barbados Villas, as it can be booked on its own or with the three studio cottage apartments adjacent to the grounds. This enables the accommodation of various group sizes of up to 14 adults.
There is simply no substitute to holiday villas such as Gibbes when it comes to relaxing family accommodation in Barbados.
Gibbes Bay is on the Caribbean side of the island with crystal clear, incredibly calm waters making it perfect for swimmers of all ages
Gibbes Beach, literally a 30 second walk from the luxury villa is possibly the most picturesque and unpopulated beach on the west coast.
All the holiday properties on the beach are private luxury villas hence there are usually very few people on the beach.
The Bay is excellent for water sports. Guests can water ski with "Captain Ron", an excellent local instructor who has taught the Gibbes House owner's familiy for over 8 years - he comes very highly recommended.
A relaxing 3-minute walk along to the bay will bring you to Mullins Beach. Here the more adventurous can hire jet skis and there is a wonderful beach bar which sells cocktails.
The Big Tree in the Gibbes House garden offers ideal shade whilst sipping an afternoon cocktail.
Relax at a beach bar in Oistons a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of the island.
The tranquil garden provides cooling shade just 30 seconds from Gibbes Beach
The pool is specifically designed for lounging, playing, reading and the occasional refreshing dip.
The colonial front entrance is your first view of this idyllic Barbados retreat.
