The St Philip Parish region
Whistling Frog House is located on the beautiful south-east coast of Barbados in the parish of St. Philip, just a short walk from the lovely secluded Bottom Bay beach.
Emerald City shopping village at Six Roads is less than 10 minutes drive away with supermarkets, Banks, gas station, post office and restaurant with children's play area.
Its also 5 minutes drive from the Crane resort which has 2 restaurants (Zen: Thai & Japanese and L'Azure: modern cuisine) with beautiful views over the most amazing beach.
Barbados is a coral stone island about 26 miles long by 14 miles wide with a population of about 250,000.
Barbados has warm weather year round with temperatures not usually ever dropping below the mid-70's (27-30 degrees centigrade). Anytime of year is a good time to visit.
With endless miles of white, powdery sand, exotic lush green botanical gardens, a rich colonial history, acres of sugar plantations and the gentle lapping of the Caribbean Sea, Barbados is truly an amazing place for a holiday.
The island is easily accessible by car, but for those who do not wish to drive there are plenty of frequently running buses.
Places of interest include the capital Bridgetown for its duty free shopping, Harrisons Caves, The wild life park, the flower caves in the north of the island to name but a few. Barbados also boasts many old plantation houses which are now "national trust " and can be toured for a small fee.
For those in search of adventure there are both walking tours and bus tours, and catamaran cruises. The beer factory (Banks) and the rum factory (Mount Gay) can also be toured and the alcohol duly sampled!
The Bottom Bay / Apple Hall area
Bottom Bay Beach is simply breathtaking. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean.
The house is
- 10 minutes to Kendal Country Club with a lovely colonial bar, the Flying Rabbit restaurant
- 20 minutes to the South Coast (St Lawrence Gap, Oistins Fish Market, Dover Beach)
- 30 minutes to the West Coast (St James, Holetown, Mullins Beach)
A regular local bus service runs from Bottom Bay to all area's of the island, although we would recommend hiring a car to see as much of the beautiful island as possible. Car collection can be arranged either at the airport or the Villa

This was an excellent villa with all the amenities you could need. The location is very quiet but not for those hoping for a bustling night life. For us it was the perfect vacation and the view from the villa is stunning. Both the owner Janet and her management representatives John and Jan were extremely helpful and I would recommend this villa to anyone wishing to get away from it all.
