Many people postponed their recent winter holiday plans, as much uncertainty still lingered around travel and safety. Today, the availability of vaccines has made these vacations possible. Why not start your winter this summer?
A most welcome and sure sign of a change in the attitude of clients has been the sale of a number of properties “sight unseen”. We attribute this to a lifestyle change - where time is more precious and our clients wish to arrive into their new homes without spending time shopping around. The purchase of homes also indicates that they plan to spend more time in Barbados, enjoying our weather, beaches, cultural activities and much more.
Barbados is ready. Our sales and villa rental specialists are ready.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Spending a year in Barbados?
Here’s how to choose the perfect ‘home away from home’.
You’ve made the big decision to take advantage of Barbados’ ‘Welcome Stamp’ initiative to live, work and play in our beautiful island paradise for a whole year. What’s next?
You’ll need to find yourself a suitable property where you can work remotely yet still enjoy your creature comforts, all while soaking up the nuances of Barbadian life.
We pride ourselves on offering the finest selection of long-term rental properties on the island, including everything from luxury villas, to historic homes, to beachfront condos; and our qualified team of agents and professionals will guide you through every step of the way in the search for the perfect property to suit your lifestyle.
Here are our top 3 things to consider:
1. Location, Location, Location
Most of our rental properties are located on the West Coast of the island – an area known for the gently lapping waves of the Caribbean Sea and fabulous dining and shopping options; but our team can find the perfect property for you on any coast. When choosing your ideal property for your long-term stay, you may also wish to consider proximity to amenities such as supermarkets, medical care, and schools, as well as recreational activities such as health club facilities, golf courses, sailing, tennis and polo clubs.
2. Furnished vs Unfurnished
We offer both furnished and unfurnished properties for you to choose from when selecting your home for the year.
Our properties are renowned for top-quality interior design, certain to make you feel right at home. Or you may prefer to start with a ‘blank canvas’ unfurnished property and add your own design flair. Barbados offers a multitude of décor options and you’re sure to find just the right fit for you.
3. Additional particulars
Finally, your ‘home away from home’ will need to suit your daily life.
Individual property policies on children and pets, WIFI accessibility for remote working, parking provisions etc. are all factors for consideration before sealing the deal on your little piece of island living for the year.
Always remember to check the most up-to-date COVID-19 entry requirements and protocols for Barbados before committing to any long-term rental property.
