Nestled among the beachfront neighbourhood of Gibbs, St. Peter, Shoestring is one of the newest additions to the villa rental market in Barbados.

Set against a backdrop of towering trees and aquamarine sea, the composition of this beachfront home celebrates Barbados’ vernacular wooden chattel house.  Bold architectural layering with large living areas, surrounding louvre windows and oversized glass doors allows for extensive views of the garden and what is undeniably one of Barbados’ best beaches.  Smooth granite finishes juxtaposed next to glass provide a sophisticated and minimalistic composition and the straight lines and shape of the front entrance, hovering over a peaceful koi pond evoke a clear sense of sophisticated and modern tranquillity.

Expanded floor plans, minimal interior walls and an emphasis on views and daylight are the defining characteristics of Shoestring which offers an upper-level master suite built around a large glass shower enclosure and an unrivalled view of the aqua sea just steps away.  An outdoor jacuzzi makes for good stargazing with the lapping shore as background music.  The two additional lower-level bedrooms are also en-suite, one boasting a cool tub with garden views, all bedrooms are king beds and air-conditioned.

The open floor plan continues to the kitchen and living areas and lets an abundance of light fill the space. Light-coloured wall surfaces, clean, modern detailing, uncluttered spaces and a neutral colour palette give the interior a calm, interesting appeal for those visitors who wish for more than just a place to lay their heads.

No smoking or vaping indoors or outdoor covered areas.

The popular Sea Shed restaurant on Mullins Beach is just a short walk away from Shoestring and is one of our recommended restaurants.

Shoestring is a beachfront holiday rental. It should be noted that beaches change their shape and size from day to day, week to week and month to month, mainly as a response to seasonal waves, currents and tides. Every effort has been made to depict the beach in front of this property, but temporary changes may occur.
