A villa by the sea evokes mental images of sun-soaked terraces and an endless sea of blue out of every window. However, the stunning villa Shoestring in Barbados is quite different. Though it is directly along the sands of the famed Mullins Beach, which is part of the opulent Platinum Coast area of the island, it is private due to its screen of lush growth. Swaying palms, native plants and mature trees provide you with generous amounts of privacy and lots of cool shade, while framing the delicate path down to the shore; making this a wonderfully unique find.

A flawless contemporary property, it exudes modern charm and appeal from every corner. You’ll notice this the moment you enter the building; passing over a marble bridge that spans an elegant little koi pond tucked beneath a roofed enclosure, it blends island and Asian inspired themes immaculately. The use of cream colored floors and walls with dark stained wood also balances that Zen-like setting.

The central living spaces is the great room which features an open floor plan that includes a stylish media room with banquette sofa and premium entertainment system, a large lounge and bar area, a welcoming and low-key dining room, and the open air kitchen. A gourmet kitchen, it features a breakfast bar and top of the line appliances. However, you may find you don’t need to visit the kitchen much since this wonderful property is fully staffed with cook, housekeeper and more.

Outside is an abundance of casual lounging and dining spots, including a sun deck, a small garden area and even a private terrace with Jacuzzi tub. The bedrooms are divided between floors. All three are king suites, with the master suite opening to its own garden level terrace furnished as an al fresco lounge and it is here that you find that opulent little hot tub. The other suites are upstairs and offer wonderful views, spacious bedrooms and large, private baths.

Ideal for a getaway with your closest friends or a larger family, the villa Shoestring is an incredibly unique find. Low-key and elegantly designed, it is a remarkably welcoming space that emphasizes the beautiful natural setting. Just steps from one of the finest beaches, it ensures you can savor the very best that the island has to offer. Minutes from town, it can be a perfect base or serve as your reason for making a journey to Barbados!

Common Questions
Do we share the villa? click to close
No. You will not share the villa with another party. The villa is exclusively yours. If a larger villa offers a lower bedroom rate category, the villa will remain exclusively yours but the unrented bedrooms will be locked off.
For example, a 5 bedroom villa that offers a 3 bedroom rate will be the exclusive use of the guest but two bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms will be locked off. Capacity is capped at 2 guests per bedroom.
Are we protected from fraud? click to open
Yes. Barbados Blue stands behind you throughout your entire vacation. Unlike other companies, each property we offer has been hand picked to ensure that our standards are met. All property managers are vetted and payments are required to be held in escrow. Our primary obligation is to ensure your satisfaction and to have an exceptionally memorable vacation.
Can you explain the reservation process? click to open
Once a reservation request is received, Barbados Blue will request a contract from the property manager for your dates of interest. Once the dates are confirmed and contract is received from the property manager, a payment will be required to confirm your reservation.
Once a reservation is confirmed, a concierge will welcome you to the planning stages of your vacation to assist with arrival logistics, rental cars, transfers, and a host of concierge services.
Can we arrange an early check in? click to open
Early check in may be possible but is at the sole discretion of the property manager. Early check in permission may not be granted until 24 hours prior to arrival.
Can we arrange a late check out? click to open
A late check out is rarely granted due to the turnover needs of a villa. A late check out may only be granted 24 hours prior to your departure from the property and only when there is no check in scheduled on the day of your check out. If a late check out is urgently needed please contact us.
Are transfers to the property included? click to open
Select villas may include a one way or roundtrip airport transfer while others may provide an escort or meeting point. Arrival logistics will be handled by your dedicated concierge as well as other concierge needs. The property's transfer policy will be listed under the Policies section.
What to expect upon arrival? click to open
In general, a villa orientation will be provided along with a key turnover. During the orientation, information and instructions for the property will be provided. Emergency contact information will be provided. We are available 7 days a week to assist with any urgent needs.
The arrival procedures due vary from villa to villa, select villas may include welcome provisioning while other properties will provide basic arrival information.
What is the cancellation policy? click to open
Since these vacation homes are one of a kind properties, the cancellation policy is strict. We highly recommend considering trip/travel insurance to protect against any unexpected cancellations or issues that may arise.
For more details, please visit Travel Protection
What happens if the property becomes unavailable after I reserve? click to open
In the unlikely event, the rented property becomes unavailable due to a major issue that may affect a guest's experience or a transfer of ownership, Barbados Blue will coordinate with the property manager to find an alternate property of equal or superior standard that is subject to the guest's approval. If an alternate property is not acceptable to the guest, the guest will receive a full refund.
Do you accept credit cards (American Express, Mastercard, or Visa)? click to open
Yes, we accept all major credit cards. American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Discover are accepted. Please note that credit card charges may be subject to additional fees. There are no fees with payment by wire transfer or check.
In the near future, we expect to accept a greater variety of payment methods and currencies via Stripe.
Is housekeeping included? click to open
Housekeeping tends to be a standard among vacation homes but the frequency may vary greatly depending on the property manager’s standards. Most properties will offer daily housekeeping (except Sunday and holidays) while other villas may only provide a mid-week cleaning. Please refer to the Policies section to learn about the housekeeping frequency of the property.
Are towels and linens provided? click to open
Yes. The property will provide bath and pool towels along with linens. Towels and linens will be refreshed as needed.
Are toiletries and tissues provided? click to open
A property may supply an initial supply of soap, shampoo, toilet paper and paper towels but replenishment of supplies once exhausted may be the responsibility of the guest. Each property varies in their handling of toiletries and paper products.
Is a hair dryer available? click to open
A hair dryer should be available at the property. Upon arrival, please check the bathrooms or closet. Typically, a hair dryer is included in each bathroom.
Is an iron included? click to open

This is what my teenagers wrote in the guest book: A trip of a lifetime that will not be forgotten. We want to give a special thank you to our amazing chef Rynelle, she went above and beyond for every meal. The hospitality, the staff, the food, the location were all so wonderful. We are so appreciative of all the hard work that went into making this trip so wonderful. Thank you for an unforgettable time. Colton and Helena, Georgetown, ON, Canada

My husband and I just returned from a vacation in Barbados with Isle Blue. We are regulars to the island but this was our first time using Isle Blue. The overall experience was outstanding, magical and so relaxing. From the beautiful villa, the staff at the villa, and the staff and service of Isle-Blue. No detail was left unattended. All vacations moving forward will be with Isle Blue, we are already planning our next trip with them.


Sally - Radwood Beach House 1 May 16, 2022

Great company to deal with. Wouldn’t hesitate to use again. Even though we booked from UK always prompt replies to any questions.


Andy D. - Windward May 6, 2022

Quick note to say we just arrived home from Barbados - thanks again for everything you did to provide us with an awesome villa to enjoy for our holiday. Dealing with some early bumps in booking process and moving us to Windward was brilliant - it is an incredible property.

Thanks again!!


Linda L. - Smugglers Cove 3 April 30, 2022

Just back from another fantastic holiday in Barbados - again Isle Blue and yourself came through with flying colours - the villa, car , etc everything PERFECT!!!
