Reeds Bay Barbados vacation rentals

Reeds Bay, on Barbados’ west coast, is known locally for its unspoiled white sand beach and is a firm favorite with Bajan locals looking to escape the crowds at the nearby Paynes Bay and Mullins Beach. In contrast to those busy nearby spots, Reeds Bay is more akin to a desert island beach, quiet, secluded, and utterly idyllic. The balmy waters of the Caribbean Sea are startlingly clear and seem to shift in hue with the changing light of the day, from sparkling sapphire blue to rich emerald green. To walk along the soft, silty sand of Reeds Bay feels like walking across clouds, and it is the perfect place to while away the hours on a luxuriously serene beach vacation.

Our Reeds Bay Barbados villas are beautiful places to spend your vacation. Located within moments of the beach, and with stunning sea views, they are the quintessential Caribbean vacation rentals for luxury trips and family breaks. With small villas for 2, and large homes sleeping as many as 10 guests, there is a rental for you regardless of whether you’re planning a couple’s break, a family vacation, or a big group getaway to Reeds Bay.

Reeds Bay Barbados villas with private pools

Having a private pool for your exclusive use is a little luxury that you simply wouldn’t have when you stay in a Barbados hotel. With our Reeds Bay villas, you can enjoy your own beautiful outdoor space, complete with a pool, seating area, and, in some cases, private hot tubs. As far as we’re concerned, there is no better place to spend a lazy vacation day than in a private pool, cocktail in hand, watching the Caribbean Sea as the sun slowly dips below the far horizon, painting the sky in shades of pink and orange as it goes.
