Sunny Barbados

Holiday Homes
for Family and Friends

on the West Coast of Barbados

I'm offering my friends and guests a number of services, including car, motorcycle and bike rental.


After your long flight why not arrive to find a basic grocery package in your Vacation Home's pantry with all the necessary grocery items for an arrival meal of your choice. Tell me your request. With your initial shopping request make sure to order enough to get yourself through breakfast the next day so that you don't have to rush out too early on the first morning of your holiday to shop.

 For more information, please contact me.


Do flying fish fly?

Flying fishFlying fishYes and no. Flying fish can break through the surface of the water and fly distances of up to 100yd at about 30 mi/h, but they do not actually fly the same way as birds, because birds vibrate their wings during flight. Instead, the flying fish gets its power and speed from its tail fin, which it moves from side to side with powerful strokes.

  • If uncertain about a swimming area, check with your hotel first as there may be currents. Stick to beaches with lifeguards on duty if you are not a strong swimmer.

  • Some beaches are bordered by manchineel trees.

  •  Avoid standing under the trees, or touching the fruit, as the white sap produced by the tree is a skin irritant that can cause blisters. Such trees are typically marked with red spray paint.


  • Barbados' water supply is very safe and you can drink water directly from the tap. Bottled water is widely available if you prefer.

  • Remember to drink plenty of water (or other fluids) to prevent dehydration.
