About this villa

Jarrow, a 19th century coral-stone villa, is nestled on the beautiful south coast of Half Moon Bay, St. Lawrence. Its gentle elevation allows you to sit on the sun deck and watch the fishermen go out to the sea early in the morning , and return with the day's catch -- which you can have freshly prepared in the comfort of your villa or barbecue on the large deck.
The gingerbread-style villa boasts three double bedrooms, two large bathrooms, and spacious mirrored dressing rooms.

From the foyer, living and dining area and well-equipped kitchen, you can enjoy the spectacular views of the sea.

The unique beach at your doorstep. is protected by a reef which makes it excellent for swimming in the day or at night. You might be joined with friendly turtles!

The skylights in the bedrooms and lounge enable you to view the beauty of the moonlight, and to welcome the morning sun.

The southeast breezes of the Caribbean sea continuously waft through the villa, keeping it fresh and cool.

There are ideal swimming and snorkeling conditions for children as the tide is always low in the bay.

We are a 15-minutes drive from the airport, and walking distance to leading restaurants, nightclubs, supermarkets, shops, and golf course.

Snorkeling, sailing, scuba diving windsurfing and much more are available in the bay. Come See and Believe!!!

    Awesome Villa with Beautiful View

    Our family really enjoyed Villa Jarrow! It is beautifully decorated, well-furnished, very close to many good restaurants and right on the clear turquoise water beach! We loved our mornings there!! Coffee and breakfast on the porch, while sometimes watching the fisherman bring in a catch. We had plenty of room and a well-equipped kitchen. AC in bedrooms is a good plus. Roseanne, the housekeeper, does a stellar job!! And Timothy Boyce is a very good host! we think anyone would enjoy themselves here.

    Absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish

    We were greeted by Tim who had a bottle of rum punch waiting for us! The property is totally amazing - everything you need is taken care of but the star of the show is the balcony. Which actually juts out over the beach so the waves go under the decking! The sunset is the best time of day for enjoying t]hat amazing light over the Caribbean Sea. We also met Mike who has a boat moored outside the villa. He took us fishing, snorkelling and a trip up the west coast. I consider Tim and Mike friends and strongly encourage you to go and stay at this villa.

    Thank you Tim for your hospitality! Your home was perfect! We loved meeting you and enjoyed touring your home with rum punch! The location was perfect to all the restaurants and bars in St. Lawrence Gap! The best of. Purse was waking up to the beautiful ocean view and hearing the waves crashing! We look forward to our next visit! Until then, Cheers!

    Million Dollar view!

    Our family greatly enjoyed our stay at Villa Jarrow! We were a family of 4, with 3 adults and one 11 year old. Several more people could easily be comfortable in this villa. Communication with Tim was great from the very start and continued all throughout our visit. He arranged transportation for us from the airport, which was a huge relief traveling to unfamiliar territory. He then gave us a complete tour of the house and dropped us off for groceries. He also connected us with “Turtle Man” Mike, who took us out on a wonderful day of snorkeling with turtles! The house itself is quaint and full of character. We loved being able to have the house open and hear the waves crash 24/7. The area tends to be very loud at night with music blaring from the night clubs in the Gap. You can hear it best in the bedroom closest to the water, but the stone walls, fans, and A/C drowned it out in the other bedrooms. But please be aware if you are a light sleeper or bothered by loud music. If you are looking for upscale, 5 star accommodations—this is not it. But if you are looking for a comfortable home with a million-dollar view and a convenient location, you have found it! We were very happy with our choice to stay in St. Lawrence Gap with so many restaurants within walking distance. We also traveled around the entire island with a rental car from this location with no problem. Don’t miss Bathsheba and Animal Flower Cave! They were 2 great highlights of our trip. Book Villa Jarrow now! You won’t be disappointed!

    Relaxing Stay in The Gap

    Beautiful views in a good location, close to restaurants and a hop skip and a jump from the Gap. Although many thins closed due to COVID 19 we enjoyed that it was probably quieter than usual and loved the sound of the ocean right beneath us. We did not get in the water here because it was pretty rough during our stay die to Tropical storms. I could see where during the calm, it could be quite noce to swim out to the reefs. I would def come back ot his location.

    Fun Week at Villa Jarrow

    The pictures of the Villa give you a sense of the place but can not match the feeling of sitting on the deck with your coffee or rum punch and watching the waves roll in. It's almost like sitting in the water. Our host Tim met us at the Villa when we arrived and provided our first glass of rum punch and joined us for our first time on the deck - a great way to start a great vacation. Tim also hooked us up with Michael the Turtleman, who provided our family of 5 with an extraordinary boat trip that included snorkeling with the sea turtles and around some sunken ships. There are sea turtles in the harbor outside the Villa but we only saw them on our last day there so our boat trip was a great way to not only see the turtles but also see other parts of the area from the sea. There is a night club in the area that plays music late into the night, which made it noisy in the bedroom closest to the water. I slept in that room and found that ear plugs solved the problem for me. Otherwise Villa Jarrow was a great place for our vacation.

    We loved this villa!!!

    Definitely recommend this property! Can’t say how many times we've said out loud how much we loved this villa. The property shows its original charm yet has been restored beautifully. Tim was a gracious host and great communicator not only during the booking process but throughout our entire stay. He arranged airport transfers and greeted us with local rum punch. The location of this villa is perfect for those that like to walk and explore. We had no need to rent a car. We walked to several nearby restaurants, bars, and beaches where we could lay out, swim, and order food and drinks on the beach. There was no shortage of entertainment within minutes of the house. What we loved the most was sitting outside on the patio and admiring the gorgeous ocean view. We saw turtles and sting rays from the deck every day. You can also see the ocean view from inside the house and hear the waves crash which was very relaxing. Lastly, the steps outside the entrance of the Gap, overlooking the bay was a beautiful place to watch the sunset and take photos. We will definitely be back!

    Enjoyable place to stay!

    We were pleased with the villa particularly the outside space. Amazing views and we enjoyed an early breakfast on the deck overlooking the sea. Lovely way to start the day. Always something to see with small fishermen leaving close to the villa and returning with their catch. About 15 Restaurants are within a 1-5 minute walk and we enjoyed many excellent meals within a short walk of the villa. The facilities at the villa were good but could do with some updating. The noise from the traffic and local area initially was a little off putting but we realised Barbados is a noisy place to visit and we mellowed as the days passed and were less bothered by it! We had a very enjoyable few hours with Turtle Mike who collected us from outside the villa and took great care of us as he brought us to swim with the turtles and snorkel at the shipwrecks. As a family with teenagers we all thought this trip was the highlight of our holiday. Thanks Mike Also thanks to Timothy who was there if needed! Thanks for some great memories. I’m writing this sitting at the airport waiting to go home and wondering if we would be lucky enough to spend some time here again in the future!!!

    Amazing just book!

    An amazing stay in an amazing place with waves gently soothing us each night! The veranda is literally over the ocean truly magical. From the minute we arrived we were welcomed like close friends. Timothy greeted us with coconut rum and information about everything we could need. Big shout out to MC TURTLEMIKE who Timothy introduced us to. He has his boat in front of the house (literally!) and took us out fishing & swimming with turtles. We caught it and cooked it! Can't get better - it was so magical and for me it was the most beautiful house to meet up with my son. A monkey came and sat on the veranda!!!. We will be back and I can not recommend it enough it was truly magical! Cant wait to return. Marie & Ryan xxx
