  1. In my younger days I went on two cricket tours to Barbados. I got some idea of what a great island it was. After bowling 12 overs and fielding for hours on end almost everyday I was too tired to make the most of this paradise island.

    It would be great to go back with some of my cricketing friends who’ve retired from the game. This time we could relax in luxury.

  2. Strangely we’ve done Antigua, Jamaica, Tobago and St Lucia. Could one of these be the villa that tempts us to Barbados?

  3. One of the great attractions of Barbados and these villas is that indoors drifts into outdoors. No need to shut doors, except for the hurricane season, and I wouldn’t be booking a villa then anyway.

  4. We’ve always stayed at a very nice villa close to Mullins beach. After reading about these villas I’m beginning to think that it might be time for us to change the location and move up to something more luxurious than we are used to. They are really so stylish.

  5. One of my retirement dreams is some leisurely island-hopping through the Caribbean and putting down roots somewhere for a week for some of the family to come and see us. One of these villas would be a dream stop-over.
