The Cottage is comprised of two separate Villas (Osborne and Bailey) which can be interconnected to create one large space, thus providing a generous, open plan three bedroom holiday villa. Having parked in your own private drive, step into the central poolside porch of Osborne Cottage and through the double doors into the central kitchen dining area, complete with airy vaulted ceilings and excellently appointed rattan wicker furniture, both of which sum up the style and ambience of the cottages completely. This area benefits from both an inside and outside living and dining area, as well as beautiful views across to the pool area and gardens. Next to the kitchen door is a wooden decked garden gazebo, ideal for relaxing during the day or having a drink in the evening. The bespoke kitchen is fully fitted with all appliances for self-catering, with all equipment and utility costs included. Maid and laundry service are offered as standard (outside of quarantine periods). The Osborne Suite has a super king-size bed and is fully air-conditioned with extensive wardrobe space. It also has spacious ensuite bathroom facilities and the benefit of a separate kitchenette. As well as the main outside dining area, there is a separate open plan evening room which adjoins the bedroom and also the added feature of the second bedroom with two large single beds which can also be converted into one large double. This second bedroom also has its own ensuite bathroom facilities. The Bailey Suite features a large bedroom with super king-size bed and it's own kitchenette, seating and dining area. Gibbes Cottage boasts its own large swimming pool and sun terrace and is perfectly located for island exploring, water sports on the beach or just as a hideaway for ultimate relaxation. Gibbes Cottage has access to its own private gardens in which guests can simply just relax and enjoy at their leisure. Gibbs Beach (less than a 5-minute leisurely stroll away) is widely considered by many to be the best beach on the west coast of Barbados. One of the most unpopulated too, it is perfect for relaxing in a quiet and peaceful atmosphere under the warm West Indian sun. The crystal clear and incredibly calm waters are great for a soothing and relaxing swim. Alternatively, Mullins Beach just around the bay and is somewhat livelier and has a range of facilities to hire, from sun loungers to jet skis. Gibbs is an excellent choice for water sports enthusiasts and the House Manager will be only too happy to make reservations and arrange equipment hire. For a little excitement, try the water skiing and experience the wave runners. Our beach is also great for snorkelling. Gibbes Cottages are situated between both Holetown, with its fantastic range of fashion boutiques, bars and restaurants, and Speightstown, otherwise known as Little Bristol, just to the north with its beautiful colonial architecture and it's sleepy fishing village feel. Speightstown is home to the Arlington House Museum as well as a number of art galleries and small cafés and delicatessens. Be it a visit to the exquisite St Nicholas Abbey to sample their rum, or a restaurant reservation at The Cliff or Daphne's to name but two, some holiday shopping at Limegrove, a spa day or even a course of water skiing, we can arrange it all. Leaving you free to simply enjoy everything Barbados has to offer. *Other things to note* If you are required to quarantine, we will be able to pre-purchase groceries for you ahead of your arrival and stock the property for you. Due to the Government restrictions, we are unfortunately unable to provide chef or housekeeping services until you receive your clear second test. More
