Barbados enjoys 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, making almost any month of the year a good time to visit. The weather is best from December through to April.
Tropical rainstorms sometimes occur in the hurricane season, which runs from June to October. As we say in Barbados "June too soon, October all over". Tropical rains are spectacular, but the Island is very porous and the heaviest rains quickly drain off into the underground lakes or the sea.  Hurricanes usually avoid Barbados. They arise off the African coast and head to the Caribbean, swinging north about 100 miles from Barbados. The pattern is reasonably consistent as hurricanes tend to bounce from one landmass to the next. Barbados is somewhat separate from the Caribbean Islands chain.This does not of course make us immune, but the last occasion Barbados suffered a direct hit was in 1955. There is a story of a bus driver who drove his passengers straight through the worst, reportedly saying "was a bit of a breeze".

Smoking:
Our apartment is strictly non smoking.

Pets:

We regret that pets cannot be accepted.

Green Monkeys can be seen throughout the Island and  just occasionally in our gardens.
Whilst they may look cute, please remember they are wild animals and should never be approached or offered food.
