Large Barbados Family Villa

5 Bedroom Villa with Private Pool and Garden

Chindwin is a large Barbados family villa, nestling next to the natural forest on the very edge of Speightstown, on the North of the West Coast, in the parish of St Peter.  It’s less than a 10 minute walk from both the nearest beach and the town centre.  Professionally managed and maintained, Chindwin offers a very different experience from many holiday villas. Sleeping up to 10 adults, or 8 adults and up to 6 children, the house is very much part of a charming, local Bajan community which gives our guests an almost unique opportunity to sample and enjoy a very different and authentic perspective.

It is by no means unusual to witness families of the native Green Monkeys making their way across the garden to the town (or back again!) where they plunder the fruit from local gardens on a daily basis.  If you are lucky, in the evening, you may be treated to your own personal firework display as fireflies exhibit their luminescent talents at nightfall. The music of the night is courtesy of the crickets and tiny tree frogs.  The humming birds, butterflies, dragonflies and much more mean that nature is very much part of Chindwin’s charm.

This family villa has an extensive master bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite shower, (not to mention the balcony from which you can look across Speightstown to the open sea beyond).

There are 3 further bedrooms with queen-size double beds.

Bedroom 5 is large, and a wonderful children’s ‘dormitory’ which can sleep either 2 adults or up to 6 children. It has 2 full sized single beds, as shown in the picture on the web site. It also has a bunk bed, of which the bottom bunk is actually a double. There is also a metal framed ‘pop-up’ bed that can be used. So, it could sleep 6 children at the most (so long as two are OK in the double). It is also perfectly adequate as a bedroom for two adults

All bedrooms have air conditioning. The bathrooms each contain a shower unit, w/c and wash hand basin.  The flexible layout provides a perfect home for a 2, 3 or even 4 generation family holiday!

On the ground floor, there is an ample living, dining and fully equipped kitchen area which, combined with a 40′ x 10′ rear covered patio and separate TV/Playroom, means that space is not an issue, even at maximum occupation. With free Wi-Fi, TV and DVD player, entertainment is readily available, and housekeeping is included weekly (stays of 7 nights or more) and more can be arranged to suit your individual needs throughout your stay, for a small additional charge.

The 24′ x 12′ x 7′ deep pool allows you to cool off at will, and we provide a table tennis table to give you a reason for doing so! We also provide 2 kayaks (with car fittings) along with various surf boards, boogie boards and snorkelling equipment for your use and enjoyment during your stay.

Chindwin provides an unusually rural location on the edge of Barbados’ third largest town, Speightstown; which remains relatively unspoilt by tourism and offers a wonderful insight into ‘old’ Barbados. However, it also offers an increasingly great variety of ‘eateries’ ranging from the ubiquitous white vans offering fantastic value ‘street food’ through to the Fisherman’s Pub (you just gotta meet ‘Junior’, the boss!), Island Plates and Little Bristol Beach Bar (where you just HAVE to try the Shark Wrap) to The Lobster Pot, Jumas and a little further north is the Yacht Club at Port St Charles Marina and the famous Fish Pot Restaurant.  There are many others, and every single one adds to the great Speightstown experience.

From Chindwin it is an easy walk to the beach, even with young children.  It takes ten minutes to walk if you go slowly with children – a shorter time for adults. You have to cross Highway 1, but the traffic is not heavy and locals are extremely good at stopping to allow you to cross.

Chindwin is close to the local bus route and the bus service is very inexpensive. Car hire is recommended, it really helps with shopping and it means you can explore the island at your leisure.  We can provide car hire quotes and make the arrangements for you.

We would love you to share the experience of being our guests at Chindwin, and look forward to welcoming you.  Contact us for availability and more information about this exceptional and unique Barbados villa.

Lovely spacious house with pool

March 25, 2017 by Courtenay Humphreys

We found Chindwin to be a spacious modern house with 5 bedrooms including one on the ground floor ideal for disabled guests who couldn't manage stairs easily. It is set in lovely enclosed gardens in a quiet residential area but close to the main coast road and public transport. The swimming pool is fabulous and plenty big enough to have a proper swim in. Our party consisted of 2 grandparents plus single son , married daughter and husband plus 3 kids aged 4 - 11 and everyone enjoyed the holiday. The house is very well equipped with 2 larder fridge/freezers washing machine dishwasher full oven and hob plus microwave. Plenty of bathrooms and toilets for all of us. Very good cable TV set up with kids programs and games plus films etc. Handy for lots of local eateries and beaches. Worth hiring a car in our opinion but by no means essential. Azizi the local agent is lovely and so helpful only a phone call away if needed but not intrusive. Local roosters herald the arrival of dawn and the daily green monkey parade along the garden boundaries only to return at dusk. Some seem to prefer to stay at the resorts however as frequent visitors to Barbados this is a safe and potentially cheaper option for larger groups who want privacy and space and to eat what and when they want and experience the 'real Barbados'. Thoroughly recommended.

What a delightful change from a resort rental

February 8, 2017 by Henrietta Onslow

We found exactly what we were looking for - a simple family holiday home. Although we were 8 adults, we could have easily accommodated a whole host of children as well since there is a very spacious kids room with 5 extremely comfortable beds/bunks. Perfect being in a neighbourhood (rather than a resort) and those neighbours were delightfully friendly. The monkey parade in the morning (through the garden) and the evening (through the tops of the palms) was wonderful - we had our own personal Green Heron by the pool every day - and hardly a mosquito to boot - certainly not the problem we expected. The house has everything you need (including a big washing machine and drying line in the garden) and and few frills which allows you torelax completely without fear of damaging anything - I can't recommend it highly enough.

Perfect house for a holiday. Simple, with comfortable beds, good kitchen, ( dodgy dishwasher, but the agents are sorting it out!) 2 large fridges (brilliant!), cool breezy living area with plenty space, good shady patiio, pool, table tennis, canoes, (or kayaks?). Good location, short walk through Speightstown, friendly locals, good shops. A wonderful opportunity to experience unspoiled Barbados. We were well looked after by the agents. A first rate holiday!
