Having stayed in Barbados on a number of occasions, Sanderlings has been the best so far. Beach front, quiet and spacious, it ticked all the boxes, we will certainly look to return in the future.

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely villa. The villa was very spacious, well equipped and kept beautifully clean. The location was amazing, just to step out of the good sized, pretty garden onto the beach was magic. The beach itself was very quiet and the sea safe for swimming. There were some gorgeous sunsets from the large balcony and it was so relaxing sitting here, during the day watching the birds and the mongoose and at night looking at the fireflies and listening to the cicadas and whistling frogs. It was an easy 5 minute walk into town where there is an adequate supermarket, fish market and several good places to eat. The locals were very friendly and happy to chat. A car is not necessary but if you want to tour the island then it is useful. I can recommend visiting Huntes Garden and St Nicholas Abbey. I'm hoping that we will be able to come back again.
It seemed by chance, or perhaps fate that we came across this charming villa whilst walking along the beach during our holiday last year. We might have missed it but were drawn to the name of the house 'Sanderlings' as it has some significance in our lives. When we later discovered that a holiday rental was possible our fate was sealed. Perhaps our best decision yet on this, our fifth trip to Barbados! We are looking forward to returning whenever we can. Thanks to all concerned for a memorable holiday.
Perfect location especially if you want to be away from the main tourist areas. Beautiful, spacious & well kept villa &gardens. To step out of the garden gate on to the beach was a big bonus. Fantastic sunsets from the large balcony overlooking the sea. During the day humming birds are frequent visitors to the garden. All amenities within short walking distance in Speightstown eg supermarket, bank, shops, restaurants & bars. Local people were very friendly & helpful. Buses stop near the villa going to all parts of the island - an experience not to be missed! We were well looked after by the housekeeper who kept everything spotless. If you are seeking ultra modern accommodation with busy nightlife/clubs nearby then this is probably not for you. However, if like us you prefer somewhere with charm and character where you can relax in wonderful surroundings, you will love Sanderlings as we certainly did. We hope to return!

The villa was everything we were hoping for ...masses of space, well equipped, a lovely home from home. Frances the owner couldn't do more for us before we arrived, and once there, the housekeeper Dorien, looked after the three of us so well. We will be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Thank you Frances
Sanderlings is exceptional. A gorgeous villa with spacious accommodation and old world charm. The large balconies overlook the well tended gardens and the beach. And the location, oh the location! Step through your own private gate onto a secluded beach and enjoy a swim with the local turtles. Take a drink down to the beach and relax on one of the sun-loungers to watch the sunset. Later, swim under the moon and stars before bedtime. Idyllic! Add to this good restaurants and shops all within walking distance and you have a perfect Caribbean holiday.
This is the most wonderful and special house. Situated well back from the main road in a cul-de-sac, it's garden faces the sea, and the gate opens straight onto the beach, which was never crowded. Downstairs, the large, airy main room is filled with comfortable sofas and chairs, also a dining table. There is a well stocked bookcase. The kitchen is fully equipped. Upstairs two large bedrooms face one to the front, and one to the sea, both have balconies. Extremely comfortable beds, and as with everything in the house, the balcony had the most comfortable chairs with a table, perfect for breakfast. There is always the sound of the sea. The house is in easy walking distance from the centre of Speightstown, where there is a small but well supplied supermarket, if one chooses to eat in. Equally, even though we were there just out of season, there were a number of very good and reasonably priced restaurants, always offering a wide menu including fresh fish. We recommend Sanderlings highly. It is quite beautifully furnished, is extremely comfortable and very quiet apart from the delightful sound of the sea, so close by. It made for a wonderful holiday, and hopefully we will be back. An absolute delight.
