Dolphin Bay Villa, cozy, tropical Beach Villa in St. James on the beach

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 2, 2016
Lovely 2 Bedroom House, fully enclosed, directly on the Beach in Paynes Bay.

Lovely 2 Bedroom House, fully enclosed, directly on the Beach in Paynes Bay with beautiful views on the Caribbean sea.

Mahi-Mahi Beach Villa is just a foodstep from the lovely, meandering Paynes Bay beachfront in the internationally acclaimed West Coast area. Our guests simply leave just the garden and step onto the shore where they can immediately bathe in the breathtaking Caribbean Sea. They can amble for miles along curving white sands, beside the tranquil waters of Paynes Bay, Sandy Lane Bay, Sunset Crest, past Holetown & beyond. These waters are perfectly suited for dipping, swimming, lounging on floating gear & snorkelling at almost any place along the way. After this, you will begin to understand why the West Coast of Barbados is world-renowned.

Mahi-Mahi is a brief stroll from some of the finest restaurants & hotels in the Caribbean. There are also budget eateries close by.

Nearby are well-stocked supermarkets, mini-marts and a 24-hour convenience-mart. The charming, coastal town of Holetown lies 3 minutes northward along the West Coast road by vehicle, with banking, shopping, duty-free facilities & restaurants from the affordable to exclusive.

For those of you familiar with the West Coast, as we are new to the area, here are some nearby properties that will help you locate us - Tamarind Cove Hotel, Treasure Beach Hotel, Crystal Cove Hotel, Coconut Creek (now Sandy Cove), The Cliff Restaurant, Daphnes Restaurant, Crocodile Den, the petrol station at the bottom of Holders Hill, Bombas (now the Blue Monkey). The Coach House & Sandy Lane are a mile north. We are very near the Paynes Bay Methodist church, overlooking the bay.

Water sports abound on this coast and are sufficiently managed to reserve large stretches for tranquil sea bathing.

Superb bus service through Paynes Bay directly links us to: Bridgetown (9 mins), the South Coast (15 mins), Holetown (3 mins) & Speightstown (14 mins).

Barbados is truly a very beautiful island, with lots of art, activities, night life, music, history and some of the best restaurants to be found anywhere. But what makes Barbados even more special, and the reason why so many visitors keep returning to the island year after year, is the people. Barbadians, called Bajans, are warm and friendly souls, always ready to greet you with a sincere smile. Barbadians make you feel welcome and special, in this lovely Caribbean Island you will feel it’s your home and will want to come back again and again. Barbados: A unique Caribbean paradise, surprisingly sophisticated, friendly, fun and always charming.

Excellent location! Clean, bright, spacious, and tastefully decorated.

Best vacation rental ever! I have rented many villas throughout Europe, North America, and Caribbean. This has been the most pleasant and positive experience. Mr. Manfred and his staff were very helpful, professional, and punctual. Mr. Manfred always responded to my emails in less than 10 minutes. They fulfilled all of our requests and surpassed our expectations. For example, the second day we were there the blender wasn't working. I messaged Mr. Manfred, he responded within 10 minutes. One hour later, he delivered a new blender.

The villa is clean and tastefully decorated. The best part is its right on the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped. The rooms are spacious and there are beach towels, bath towels and an extra set of bed sheets as well.

We opted to use the bus instead of renting a car as the villa is in a great location and it's a few steps from the bus stop. We enjoyed touring the island and taking the local yellow bus.

There are locals that gather next to the villa...they are friendly and harmless. I felt very safe at the villa at all times.

Needless to say, I would highly recommend Mahi Mahi!

Notes:

  • The Guest shall feel at home in my rented property and enjoy all of its facilities, yet the tenant is asked to respect the peaceful character of the place, to only use appliances for their intended use, and respect the tranquility of the neighborhood (i.e. no more loud music after 10 pm on the patio or in the garden)
