Dudley Wood is a very popular rustic style villa located on the tranquil and unspoilt Gibbes Beach. We think it is one of the best villas to rent in Barbados. It is perfect for families who wish to be on the beach.

This charming chalet style beach house is built of bleached timber. It has a shingle roof and a unique rustic ambiance.

You enter the villa at mid level over a small wooden bridge which leads from the off road parking area into the main living area.

This level and the upper floor are built entirely of wood. There are wooden floors, walls and exposed pickled pine ceilings. An informal sitting area with Cable TV and DVD has been recently decorated to provide laid-back comfort.
