Bibian's Beach House is an attractive, detached, privately owned, traditional Bajan-style beachfront villa.
PLAN OF BIBIAN'S & FIDJI BEACH HOUSES:-

Jordan's offer a free shuttle van back to the house if guests require it to transport their groceries. There is a deli in the shopping complex by the supermarket and it is open for breakfast and lunch. Il Tempio restaurant is opposite Jordan's. The are 4 other bars/restaurants within a 15 minute walk - including the The Cliff restaurant which is famous for it's food. You will find 3 other restaurants at Paynes Bay which is a 20-25 minute walk.
Buses run frequently from the stops that are close to Bibian's Beach House and they have a set rate of BDS$ 2 to any destination in Barbados. Taxis are readily available and there is a reputable taxi stand only 3 doors down.
A 10 minute drive/short bus ride north of Bibian's Beach House will take you to all of the amenities in Sunset Crest & Holetown. Here you will find an excellent selection of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.

Twoworld-class golf courses - The Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane - are within easy reach.
The airport is a 30 minute drive and the bustling capital of Bridgetown is 20 minutes away by car.
* Fitts Village beach is located just north of Prospect and just south of Paynes Bay - off the main highway (Highway 1) on the west coast of the island.
This fishing area extends towards the neighbouring Paynes Bay Fishing Market. It also boasts a very select group of restaurants, including Il Tempio which overlooks the Caribbean Sea. This place of fine dining is the only Italian restaurant in the district and is just one of a few Italian restaurants in all of Barbados.
The beaches along the west coast are excellent for swimming.
The Fitts Village area, with its clear blue waters containing several small reefs - especially to the south – provide interesting snorkelling. The seas here are calm - as you would expect on this coast - although it is a bit more lively in some spots and at high tide. Occasionally you may spot a turtle surfacing for a breath of air.
Fitts Village beach is fairly wide and quite quiet. It is the ideal spot to enjoy the sea, sand and sun or relax with a good book under the shade of the trees that border the beach which is mostly used by locals from the surrounding districts and guests who stay in the accommodation located on the beachfront.
Fitts Village beach is a favourite nesting spot for turtles with many hatchlings beginning their life right there. The Barbados Sea Turtle Project also releases hatchlings on this beach and encourages locals and visitors to assist in this process. (Barbados is home to the second largest Hawksbill turtle nesting population in the Caribbean. The nesting season for these turtles is May to October).
Picnic benches are scattered among the Casuarina trees lining the shore and to the north is a small open esplanade.
Parking in Fitts Village is available at the Church of the Good Shepherd (a beautiful seaside Anglican church) or you can easily catch a bus as Fitts Village is on the main bus route. If you wish you can get off at the Fitts Village esplanade directly opposite Jordans Supermarket.
BIBIAN'S BEACH HOUSE has a private shaded veranda - complete with a hammock, a dining table & chairs, a lamp, reclining chairs, a side table and a bench seat. The veranda looks down on to a private patio - furnished with a table & chairs, a sunshade and loungers - and out to the peaceful beach and the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Lynne & Rupert - Devon, UK. Oct./Nov. 2015.
Thank you. The vacation was wonderful. We didn´t miss a single thing in that place.
In particular Denise and Rudy were wonderful !
The photos don't mirror the wonderful location and view.
James & Biminy - New York, USA. June 2015.
"This is a truly wonderful place - hope to go back again soon".
Liz Barnes - Kent, UK. April/May 2015.
It was a truly magical place and holiday. Just right for a romantic young or old couple to relax together !!
Though I hated trawling through websites to find a self-catering place, having found Bibian’s, it was all worth it ! We wished we had booked a longer trip.
There was lots of information and useful links on your web site that helped with the initial selection and background for other west coast properties.
Your info pack was so helpful for our stay - and for reassurance re medical surgeries, hospital etc.
Your attention to detail and efficient, very prompt service and response to emails was impressive.
Thanks for yours and Pat’s support in checking that Harold, the taxi driver,
was aware of our flight delay. We used him 3 times. Thank you so much for
all you did.
If you want lots of strong sun, it’s on the shared patio in the morning and comes round to the veranda and sea-facing patio later.
We lived on the veranda where you could avoid the midday sun or the rain showers but still feel the warmth and sea breeze. We ate every meal there and read or chatted there till bedtime. The small kitchen had everything we needed, and the house and its private, romantic setting and view were so idyllic, that we just wanted to stay in and make the most of it. It was our little bit of paradise and a truly relaxing retreat.
We will thoroughly recommend you and the house to anyone. If we can afford to go again, we will look no further than Bibian’s !
Thank you and the owners so much”.

Brilliant house, 100% recommend - and Denise, the owner was lovely. We hope one day to be back.
Irene, your information pack was great - very informative.
My husband and I stayed at Bibians at the end of August with my Brother and Sister-in-law and it was perfect. The house is so pretty, the rooms are decorated nicely and there was enough space that we could all spread out. Particularly great is the outside covered veranda, we had a bit of rain and this was a great spot to relax in the hammock. The view was amazing.
Laura & family - Aberdeen, Scotland. August/September 2013.
"We found the accommodation and owners hard to fault.
We couldn't fault the equipment, facilities and useful supplies that were provided. We didn't want for anything.
I was completely happy with the information you provided prior to our holiday. It is well thought out and it offers something for seasoned visitors as well as first timers".

We can't wait to make a return visit.
Thank you very much".

"The accommodation was superb. It met all of our expectations - and then some.
Rudy and Denise were the perfect hosts and went above and beyond in all that they did. We felt like we left our family behind when we left Bibian's Beach House. I would recommend this place anytime. It was a perfect 10 !!!!!
Will miss the beach house and Rudy and Denise.
Take care and thank you for all that you did.
A true 5 star guest house !"

"Irene, thank you so much for your organisation and all your information pack contents – so useful and very comprehensive - and I read it all !
'The beach house was fantastic - even better than expected ! A super place. It really lacked for nothing.
We had a wonderful holiday".
Patsi, UK - July/August 2010.
"As soon as I arrived at Bibians I was taken aback with the lovely 'feel' of the house. Bibian's was even better than I remembered it from our stay 2 years ago. I had forgotten just how nice it is ! The beach was a lot wider and less rocky than 2 years ago which was a major advantage ! We really felt as if we had our own private beach. It was just perfect !! There were just a few people passing by and looking and envying Bibians.
Lesley & Tony, UK - April/May 2010.
""The house was great and had everything we needed for the week we were there. We were very comfortable and relaxed. Everything went very smoothly. Our time away was wonderful, ,just wish we could have stayed longer !"
Penny, USA - March 2010.
Bibians Beach House ...the most relaxing vacation ever.
We were met by the owners and they were very helpful and just a ‘phone call away for any questions.
Jayne & Matt - Ontario, Canada. January 2010.
What a great cottage ! We loved sitting on the porch looking at the perfect crystal turquoise ocean. We swam 3 times a day because it was right in front of us !
The cottage was comfortable, Denise and Rudy were very helpful. We are ‘foodies’ and the kitchen was very well equipped for cooking meals, even grilling fish on the barbeque !
We would definitely return to Bibians Beach House if we are in Barbados.
California, USA. March 2010.
"The accommodation and facilities matched our expectations.
Having you arrange a pick-up from the airport was well worth it.
If everything works out for us again we would go back next year".
John - USA. January 2010.
"Thanks, Irene, you're a gem...
Barry, USA - May 2009.
We all had the most wonderful time at Bibians and Fidji Beach Houses. It was all absolutely perfect.
We made full use of the lovely veranda overlooking the beach at Bibians, cooking local fish on the BBQ every night bought from the local fish market.
We had monkeys visiting us every day and had a turtle come right in - swimming up to the beach in front of us.
My granddaughter helped the local fisherman rescue their sprats from the nets right on the beach.
The houses were traditional and cosy and Rudy was on call if needed".
Lesley, Tony & family, UK - April 2008.
"We think Bibians Beach House was fantastic and we will return, It was a very, very nice place".
John & Anne, UK - March 2008.
