Bellevue Plantation, private villa rental Barbados

No villa rental experience on Barbados compares to Bellevue Plantation. Live as the original planters did, looked after by our staff who are at hand to help with all aspects of your stay, from preparing authentic cuisine to guiding you through all the beautiful attractions of the island. You’ll be carefree, serene and happy throughout your time with us, we offer a truly unique villa rental.


You can enjoy our golf course at the exclusive Apes Hill Golf and Polo Club and take advantage of our membership, with reduced fees. Our reciprocal beach clubs are nearby and at your disposal every day. Stroll through the 70 miles of white and pink sand beaches surrounding our island, offering a huge array of water-sports (jet skis, catamarans, waterskiing) and amazing underwater sights including turtles, shipwrecks and brightly coloured, tropical fish. If snorkelling and diving don’t appeal, there are breathtaking submarine cruises.

Try a day inland, visiting our Flower Forest or Orchid World and the awesome Harrison’s Cave, a crystallised limestone cavern with deep, underground water pools – an unmissable adventure for the whole family. Go riding on the beaches of the east coast, which is also the best spot for surfing. From zip-lining to a flight along the coast in an ultralight for the intrepid, there are activities to suit everyone. Family catamaran trips to swim with the turtles or romantic sunset cruises all are arranged for you. Or simply sit by the pool and let the world go by.

We’re only ten minutes from Holetown, where the designer shopping includes Cartier, Diamonds International, Armani, Burberry and Gucci, all duty free. We’re just as close to Harbour Lights, the authentic, tropical nightclub where you can dance the night away on the beach under a blanket of twinkling stars.

Bellevue is ideal for large family holidays and celebrations. It’s a superb retreat centre or wedding venue and also a brilliant choice for private functions or entertaining business clients in style. With temperatures averaging 30°C all year round, you’ll feel rested and renewed within hours of your arrival. We welcome all guests with rum punch, and our hospitality is renowned throughout the island, as are the unforgettable Bellevue weddings which we regularly hold in the romantic setting of our grounds.

Bellevue was built in 1753, making it one of the very first plantations on Barbados. The house was completely refurbished in 2008 to provide a luxury modern villa for rental in a delightful ambience of yesteryear Barbados.
