'Villa Jarrow',Beach Front, Beautiful Victorian Restored Property


Property Details

Updated: Nov 15, 2014
3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Oceanfront Villa Vacation Rental, Worthing, Barbados

Jarrow, a 19th century coral-stone villa, is nestled on the beautiful south coast of Half Moon Bay, St. Lawrence. Its gentle elevation allows you to sit on the sun deck and watch the fishermen go out to the sea early, and return with the day's catch -- which you can have freshly prepared in the comfort of your villa.

The gingerbread-style villa boasts three double bedrooms, two large bathrooms, and spacious mirrored dressing room. From the foyer, living/dining area, sun deck and well-equipped kitchen, you can enjoy the spectacular views of the sea.

The unique beach is at your doorstep. It's protected by a reef, and is excellent for swimming in the day or at night.

The skylights in the bedrooms and lounge enable you to view the beauty of the moonlight, and to welcome the morning sun. The southeast breezes of the Caribbean sea continuously waft through the villa, keeping it fresh and cool.

There are ideal swimming conditions for children as high tide is always low in the bay.

We are a 15-minute drive from the airport, and are close to leading restaurants, nightclubs, supermarkets, shops, and golf courses. Snorkeling, sailing, scuba diving, and windsurfing are available in the bay.

Absolute hidden gem. The perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
As a Barbadian national that returns frequently and have stayed in different parishes and various rental properties, Villa Jarrow blew me away. Starting with interaction with management regarding booking was easy and friendly and trustworthy. As beautiful as the pictures are of the villa, they don't do it justice at all. The property is absolutely breathe taking. The interior is gorgeous and extremely clean and the beach and surrounding is inviting and relaxing. The location was perfect with everything you could need within walking distance. This hidden treasure will always be my choice of stay when I am in Barbados!

Owner's Response: We do get many comments of this sort and thus most of our guest are repeats that have made the Villa a Home - Away - from Home. However even though it is run by a veteran Resort Hotelier we do not take full credit for the guest feed back for indeed the Geography of spot,the long stretch of the beautiful Beach,the Turtles that swim in the Bay in the mornings and evenings, the fresh fish that is fillet by the fishermen for our guest to barbeque on the large deck, the protection of the swimming and snorkeling area by the reef all combine to assist us in presenting this Victorian Styled property that was restored to its original Architecture to its guest. Its location also allows our guest to walk to most of the requisite activities for an enjoyable Holiday. Yes the pictures cannot tell the full beauty of this spot and the charm of the restored property. We do LOVE to see the reaction of our first time arrivals. They go WOW ! WOW ! WOW !!!! Come see and Believe!!!

My family and i stayed at Villa Jarrow for our honeymoon from Oct 18th to the 25th. We had an amazing stay at this Villa, we would defiantely recommend this beach house to anyone reading this comment. We loved it so much we will be returning next year for sure. You are right on the beach and the romantic sunsets that you get in the evening are breath taking. Go stay and have lots of fun.

Owner's Response: This is in keeping with the novelty and quality of this Historic Villa and the activities available in the area. Yes the Beach is about four miles of lovely white sand ideal for any activity. The unique feature of the Bay is that you can swim day or night. Watching the activity along the St. Larence Gap from your patio allows you to be away from it while still enjoying it. We are always happy to be advised by a client that they will be back and thus becoming an addition to the Jarrow family.

Just wanted to say thank-you for the vacation of a lifetime! Honeymooners,stayed at your Villa Sept.2010 , the fishermen brought us fish almost daily, and we had the choice to stay in or eat out , we did both, within walking distance. We didn't need to rent a car, and took several tours of the Island....our little gem of a place was so romantic especially at Night...with the lights across the Bay! We swam day and night, and felt completely safe. The Villa was extremely clean and well maintained...we plan to come back every anniversary for the next 50 Years! Thanks again!

Owner's Response: We thank these guests for their kind comments on the villa. The villa is ideal for honeymooners and those in love with nature. The Bay has its own charm and the Fishermen add that Island flavour with their fresh catch of the Day. The Villas location is ideal to offer one to fully enjoy the activities of Barbados without the heavy cost of Rent a Car etc.... As former Hoteliers we do our best to ensure guest satisfaction and thus our repeat client rate is in excess of 60%.

We stayed at Villa Jarrow for 2 weeks October 2010, and loved it! Mixed Business with Pleasure and were pleasantly surprised value for dollar! The 40 Foot deck is literally in the Sea, and the view in a sheltered bay at night is awesome, yes, the gap can be active/restaurants/bars/shopping but, that is the charm of the place. The villa had all you need a home away from home, and safe swimming day or night. We have already booked again in Feb.2011...and are bringing our Friends from Canada...They are so excited..Thank-you Villa Jarrow, can't wait to return to the Gem of the Caribbean.

Owner's Response: Please post this as a feature review. We continue to get these kind of reviews but not many persons take the time to send them to Home- Away or Trip Review. However we had an unfortunate review from a husband and wife client that posted two seperate reviews "rip off villa" and "Buses Boom Boom Boom". The clients wanted absolute peacs and quiet which is not what the villa offers. We offered them other properties that we manage and they refused and demanded a full refund even though they were told six months in advance at the time of their booking of the location and activity in the area and our cancellation policy. These reviews are abosolutely untrue and we cannot understand why they are still running after two years. I will here after ask my guest to send their comments to you. I am a 30 year veteran in the five Star resort business and should know how and what to deliver in running a three bedroom Villa. My appeal to all clients " Come See and Believe". The Owner.

Our favorite little hideaway

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed at Villa Jarrow 7 times and loved it every single time.
Stayed with friends, stayed there as a couple, been there with our 3 boys. It is located in the GAP so you have to expect that it will be a busy with activity at night, which for us is perfect because we don't have to get in the car for some of the Islands best restaurant. The people in charge of the house form Timothy to Valerie are always there to help. Our whole family highly recommends this Villa.

Rip off villa

  • 1 of 5
I cannot recommend this rental whatsoever.. We stayed there in April 2008 and I have reviewed this elsewhere and I know it is not typical of this wonderful island, but Villa Jarrow has little to recommend it. Its noisy, no sleep until after 4.00am on a Friday. 3.00am on a Saturday and 3.00am on a Thursday. The beach is full of seaweed and various flotsam, its sandwiched between two restaurants and the Karioke is loud. We got little help when complaining.

Owner's Response: This guest checked into the Villa for at a very busy week end in Barbados -- Around Easter!!! Once a Year most Beaches send sea weed up on the Beach as the sun is needed for some of the eggs form the Sea urchers to cultivate! In five to seven days the sea returns for the Sea weed or if it ever gets too much, which is unusual, the Government Cleans the Beaches. We however do not like to see this as it is Man inter-fearing with nature!!! Most of our Guest enjoy the Two Restaurants that have since been reduced to one since one is closed and the other an Italian is loved by most of our guests. The Noise from the Night Club is no more as this is now a Brazilian Restaurant. Our Positives far outweighs our negatives. Villa Jarrow is ideal, for lovers of a Caribbean Vacation!! Those who want to wake up to the noise of the gentle waives of the Caribbean Sea which invites you to walk or jog along its seven miles and then have a gently swim or dip to cool that body down!! We had two negative reviews in the years 1989 to 2012 and these two are related as the guest know each other and the 2009 one was written almost one year after her two night stay!!! We purposely undersell this Historic Villa in our Marketing because we love that WOW factor that we get when our guest arrives at the property! If you are looking for absolute solitude then Route one and Route Seven which is the Caribbean Sea and the Beach Front area of Barbados is not for you. Advise us and we will recommend an inland place!!!! I invite prospective clients to read all of our reviews and then COME, SEE and BELIEVE for indeed you will be looked after by a Retired International Resort Hotelier !!!!!


From the Owner

Let our Previous guest answer this question: 2) The best vacation spot on the island! Left on 04/17/2014 for a stay in March 2014. This was our second time spending our vacation at Villa Jarrow and we could not have asked for anything more. The location, view and accommodations were just perfect. We saw many people walking by on the beach, looking at us with envy as we lounged or barbecued on the front balcony overlooking the ocean. In addition to the Villa being a great place to stay, the water out front was perfect for swimming. Clear blue and calm, with beautiful sand bars that we could walk or swim out to. We even saw a sea turtle swimming through the water on many of the days we sat out front. The location was the best! Despite driving around the whole island, and visiting several other parishes and beaches, we came to the conclusion that we still thought ours was the best of the bunch! We would definitely return again and have recommended Villa Jarrow to many of our friends already. Timothy was the best - he called to check in on us several times during the week always jolly and willing to help us out with any inquiries we had! He even drove us to the grocery store on the first day so we could stock up our kitchen for the week! Thanks Timothy for making our stay as amazing as it was! 37Nicola London, United Kingdom: What a view and turtles!!! ) You're not on the sea, you're in the sea...I keep the pictures of this place in my appointment book back home so I can day dream...' - Mr. Rousseau, Quebec, Canada 5) 'We had a glorious time here... We all can see God's handiwork & the beauty of His creation right here in Barbados!' - Mr. & Mrs. Peterson, Texas, USA
