Exclusive villa holidays in Barbados are so much more than the beach and the ocean. Of course the beach is wonderful and we all love to spend time there enjoying the crystal clear waters and all the activity – even if that is just snoozing in the shade, reading a book or an afternoon of people watching ! However, many of our guests like to wash off the sand and head for the shops for some serious retail therapy.
Many of our visitors take the opportunity to do some duty free shopping and Barbados has a great deal to offer. Why not treat yourself or someone special to something precious that will last a lifetime – that wonderful piece of jewellery or a very significant ring perhaps ? We have a huge choice from countless well known designers: diamonds, emeralds, rubies, precious gems of every type and colour – something to tempt everyone. You can make considerable savings by making your purchase duty free in Barbados. Shopping duty free is easy; you will need to have your travel documents with you and give details of your rental villa address in Barbados.
Bridgetown, the capital city of Barbados has always been a popular choice for shoppers. Broad Street is lined with shops of every kind, from crystal and fine figurines, electrical items, watches, pens, clothing, bridal attire and souvenirs. The Pelican Craft Centre, located just next to the Bridgetown Port is a great place for gifts and hand crafted goods, unique pieces at great prices. For pottery the famous Earthworks located in St. Thomas is hard to beat. Their style is very Caribbean in bold colours and distinctive design. At Earthworks you can see the potter at his wheel actually crafting the items. Earthworks are especially good at packing your purchases for you carry back home safely; this family run business has been shipping their goods around the world for years. Paradise Rentals exclusive villa holidays in Barbados give you a marvellous opportunity to take in all of these great shopping experiences.
Not to be missed is a visit to the trendy Limegrove Lifestyle Centre arguably the most stylish place to see and be seen for visitors and residents alike. Limegrove is right in the middle of Holetown, St James on the prestigious west coast.
