Warm waves lapping onto white sand beaches, the soothing sound of steel drums in the distance and sunsets of bright orange – there is nothing quite like a Caribbean holiday for the ultimate family getaway. We love the Caribbean destinations of Barbados and St Barths, where azure waters evoke serenity and tranquility. The Firefly Collection has a wealth of luxury villas to choose from in these tropical and alluring destinations; we’ve hand-selected seven of our finest.
Private tropical gardens surround the luxury beachfront Villa Gloria in Holetown, Barbados – a stately mansion whose architecture impresses almost more than the pristine turquoise sea views from every room. The six large suites have an elegant colonial style with luxurious bathrooms. Water features abound, from the pool to streams and lily ponds to the gorgeous Caribbean waters beyond. Private tennis courts and a nearby golf course also offer plenty of activities to keep you entertained.
The super-stylish Villa Nina, St Barths would suit two couples who want the privacy of their own villa, but to stay close to the action. This beachfront villa features two spacious super king suites with stunning sea views. Part of the Eden Rock community, you get a completely private villa but with all the amenities of a 5-star resort on your doorstep. Restaurants, bars, full-service staff and your own full-time butler will be on hand to take care of all your needs. The only thing you have to do is decide between the private pool, the spa pool, or your lounge chairs on the white-sand beach.
A contemporary masterpiece, Villa Dorsey, Barbados is a five-bedroom villa in an exclusive neighbourhood just south of Mullins Bay. The calm, soothing elegance of the décor and the ingenious sunken pool will wash away the stress of everyday life—and that’s before you get to the private, white sand beach just beyond the gate!
The word “stunning” just doesn’t do justice to the grandeur you feel in each of the rooms of Villa Iresine, located in the Sugar Hill Resort, Barbados. Ultimate luxury pervades every detail, and perfectly complements the sea views from every window. Four king bedrooms comprise the living quarters, which offer expansive views of the azure waters beyond. The views continue in the stately main rooms with ‘disappearing’ doors that open completely, leading to an outdoor kitchen, swimming pool, gazebos, putting green and tennis court.
Not only rock star in name, the super luxury Villa Rockstar, St Barths was dubbed the ‘One-hundred-million dollar yacht on land’ and lives up to its luxurious reputation. With six bedrooms, a private recording studio that is decked-out with guitars and a full drum-set, a screening room, pool table and whiskey bar, it’s certainly the real deal. You’ll feel like rockstar from the moment you step through the door!
Villa Galilaia, Barbados is a spacious, nine-bedroom luxury estate set on 11 acres of lush, beachfront gardens. The white-washed walls and wooden beams give an elegant colonial Caribbean feel, while the pools, tropical gardens, lily ponds and secret hideaways give a sense of truly being on an island getaway. The property is family friendly, with a children’s wing that sleeps 10, and offers a separate kitchen and jungle gym. Fully serviced with a staff of 15, the grounds feature a pool with a swim-up bar, tennis courts, a gym, and cinema room. But if that’s not enough, you also have access to paddle boards, kayaks and a sunfish sailboat.
Turtle Beach House, Barbados is a private paradise tucked into an acre of tropical gardens and comes with a full-service staff, multiple chefs and three meals a day. Eight bedrooms are dispersed between the main house and individual ‘chattel’ houses, offering private retreats from the exquisite communal areas. This is an ideal villa for large groups or corporate events. In addition to the pool and bar, there is a gazebo and boardwalk, kayaks, a pleasure boat and laser sailboat.
