A fully equipped, self catering Holiday Home Rental.
Gibbs Palms a place to relax and read all those books you have been saying you will get to, at the cottage or down at Gibbs Beach, St Peter, Barbados in the beautiful Caribbean Sea. A privately owned house used by family and close friends with some available times open to people looking for a tranquil relaxing holiday.
Cottage Tidbits: The cottage was built 40 years ago as a winter getaway. It is privately owed and rented out mainly to long time friends. These annual returning friends treat the property like their own place and give it that 'home-like' holiday cottage feel.
The large Pride of India and Flamboyant Trees along with the openness for the predominant easterly breeze keeps the Gibbs Palms house and property cool and comfortable.
Gibbs Beach: Sometimes spelled Gibbes beach, is a typical picture postcard Caribbean setting. All beaches in Barbados are 'Public Beaches'. There are no commercial activities going on at Gibbs beach as it is bordered by private homes and some high end individual beach rental units. The 2 estates that flank each point are 2 of the most beautiful properties in Barbados. Being on the west coast there are almost never large waves, just that soft rolling warm Caribbean tide in and out on the beach. This makes for easy entry (or exit) to the sea and of course great swimming.
Seeing Barbados: There is only one airport in Barbados, so after you find your holiday deal on a charter, (Virgin, British Midland, BWIA, Air Canada, Westjet, US Air, American Airlines or others) you can arrange a taxi pick up at the airport with us, or you can rent a car to use while here and see Barbados on your own. How you get around Barbados is your choice, as many people prefer many different types of vacations; from independent to adventurous to chauffeured. You can also arrange day trips, by car or boat, or water sports from Gibbs Palms from the information at the cottage. Having a car is your choice. It is not a requirement as buses are easy and frequent down by the coast road. For shopping, Speightstown is a 2km walk down the beach, or you can take the bus for $2.00 BBD, or call a cab. You can return the same way, or the local supermarket (Jordan's) offers free rides home for customers with their groceries....Read more
Left on 05/20/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | PattiAnnG61Reviewed May 20, 2014Stayed Feb 2014
This was our second stay at Gibbs Palms. Situated on a beautifully landscaped lot covered with bright colorful shrubs and flowering plants, bananas and lime trees. It is a clean, well maintained bungalow with all the comforts of home. It provided us with the relaxing vacation we were hoping for - meals on the outdoor patio and just a couple of minutes to walk to the beach for the day. Close to both HoleTown and Speitztown for shopping trips, short drives to Earthworks, Bridgetown, and other popular tourist spots. Chris's Place just a few minutes away up the road is a local eatery - great "catch of the day" lunches along with the best Mac Pie and Friday Rib night is a must! The locals are friendly and helpful and we always felt welcome. We are definitely planning to visit again.
