Glitter Bay Beach Apartment


2 Bedroom Apartment on the West Coast of Barbados


St James Beach Rental with Large Swimming Pool

Palm Trees Glitter Bay beach rental apartment is superbly located just steps from the fabulous white sandy beach, in the parish of St James, close to Holetown.  Glitter Bay Estate comprises 48 elite rental units, set within very extensive, tropical gardens and pools which are beach side at Allenye’s Bay, one of the very best beaches in Barbados.  Year after year, discerning travellers continue to seek out this famous ‘platinum coast’.

At Glitter Bay you’ll find sun, sea, sandy beaches and all the charm of Barbados.  You can be sure of high levels of care and attention.  All of the Glitter Bay Estate amenities are at the disposal of our Palm Trees guests.  Staying at Palm Trees offers the best of all worlds; you can enjoy the space and service of a top class resort whilst retaining the privacy and intimacy of your own self-catering apartment.

Palm Trees rental apartment measures approximately 1300 square feet and is on the first floor, opposite the Glitter Bay Estate pool.  There is an elevator if you prefer not to use the stairs.  From the apartment it takes just one minute to walk to the beach through the well tended gardens.

At Palm Trees we strive to provide everything our guests could desire.  In the master bedroom there is a magnificent four poster super-king bed.  Here you’ll find a safe for your valuables and documents.  There are glass doors to the terrace so you can just step out of the bedroom and survey the tropical gardens, the pool, and down to the beach and sea.  In the second bedroom the bed has an attractive carved, wooden headboard.  This room has two twin beds which can be made up as large double bed if preferred.

Both bedrooms are air conditioned.  The bed linen is finest quality Egyptian cotton sheets and there are huge duvets.  Linen robes, slippers, and huge fluffy bath towels, hand and face towels are all provided for your comfort and convenience.  Complimentary housekeeper service is provided, twice a week on stays of 7 nights or more.

For your entertainment you can enjoy a wall mounted 46” SMART TV and DVD player in the lounge with TV Apps installed and a wall mounted 42” TV in the master bedroom.  The apartment benefits from free, super fast, internet access, so you can keep in touch (and work if you must!).

To keep you cool and comfortable there is air conditioning throughout the apartment.

Palm Trees apartment is the perfect beach rental home and thanks to the Glitter Bay Estate, it’s as good as staying at a 5* hotel.  It’s just right for a romantic getaway, to celebrate a special occasion (beach weddings are a specialty) or for a well deserved family holiday.  Palm Trees is modern, beautifully furnished, well equipped, and practical.  You can start the day with breakfast on the terrace, while you plan another sun-soaked day in paradise.  It’s impossible to tire of the wide, white, sandy beach.  For the more active you can enjoy a game of tennis or golf (world class golf courses are nearby at Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland).  If you prefer a steadier pace, perhaps try a yoga class or indulge in rejuvenating ‘spa at home‘ treatments.  A massage under the stars is a perfect end to the day.  Relaxed evenings can be spent in rocking chairs on the terrace with a cocktail, watching the sunset.

The Estate has extensive facilities.  There is a large pool, a children’s pool, two tennis courts, a gym, table tennis, a beach bar, and BBQ.  Water sports and scuba diving are available at extra cost from the beach.  The snorkelling is fantastic with lots to see, or you can enjoy a trip out to swim with the beautiful sea turtles and tropical fish.  Next to Glitter Bay Estate is the famous Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel.  You can easily walk along the beach to a bar or to the Lone Star Restaurant.

If you can tear yourself away from the rental apartment and the Glitter Bay Estate, you may want to explore Barbados.  Travel just half a mile South along the coast road and you arrive at Holetown.  Here you’ll find duty free shopping, supermarkets, banks, bars, a cinema and a 24/7 medical centre.  There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, from fine dining to relaxed and trendy cafes and roadside eateries.  Getting around is easy.  There is a bus stop outside Glitter Bay Estate, a taxi rank, or if you prefer the freedom of a hire car, we can arrange quotes for rental and make all the arrangements for you.

Leave the stresses and strains of day to day life behind and switch onto Bajan time!  Come to stay at Glitter Bay beach apartment  and find out just how relaxed you can become!

02 07, 2016 Our best Barbados holiday yet !
by Sarah

The holiday at Palm Trees, Glitter Bay was definitely our best yet. The facilities in the condominium were second to none, its position near Holetown added to the week. Eleanor the housekeeper was an absolute delight. I even went to Yoga and played tennis. A fabulous week.
