Arrive in Barbados with your negative test results and voila, you’re free to go. It’s that simple. Have breakfast, a dip in the pool, (at your private vacation villa), or visit one of our Top 5 recommended restaurants – all with no time spent under restrictive movement. If you have not yet already done so and you have an upcoming stay with Blue Sky Luxury, please confirm to our team the vaccination status of all adults in your party so that we can ensure arrangements are made accordingly. Before you get to roaming the Barbados countryside, here are the full details for vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers in the new Barbados Travel Protocols.

What’s a fully vaccinated person?

A fully vaccinated person has been classified by the Barbados Government as having received an approved vaccine in a two-dose regime and has received both doses plus 14 days, or a one-dose regime, one dose plus 14 days. Your vaccination status will be fact-checked by the Barbados Government and persons who do not meet the criteria will fall under the travel protocol for unvaccinated persons. That’s not a terrible thing, it may be a slightly longer wait but the safety of Barbadians and visitors alike has always paramount. However, if you are looking forward to the roaming of said countryside, being fully vaccinated certainly fast tracks you there… ahem, as do our Concierge Can team.

How Can we at Blue Sky Luxury Help?

Protocols are constantly changing; Barbados has been quite forward-thinking in ways to operate safely while placing the value of lives at the forefront. Our Concierge Can team can help you:

· Secure your PCR appointment with an approved medical practitioner

· Arrange for the medical practitioner to test you privately at your villa

Technology dictates the way in which we do business! After investing in a web-based property management software, we have been discovering its added benefits. One of these benefits is the app and its work order function.

As property managers, we are often on the go. We need to keep abreast of what is going on at our properties and have adequate follow-through. We need to have some organization and with this app, these things are possible.

Let us tell you more about the app.

This app helps us by being able to determine our arrivals, departures and in-house guests with a click on our phone. It also helps us to keep track of maintenance at our properties, we can upload photos and add notes. We can also complete our many, many, many checklists. At the end of it all, we can generate a report for our owners based on all that we have done. Essentially it helps us in maintaining our Blue Standards.

What are our Blue Standards? We have a blog for that! Now we also have an app for that. In the app, we have our Health and Safety Checklist, our Fire and Safety Checklist, Hurricane Preparedness Checklist, Audit Checklist, Arrival Checklist, Departure Checklist, and the list goes on. Cannot recall when the air conditioning units were last serviced, you do not have to worry if you have it stored in the app. For those tasks that we need to perform on a reoccurring basis, the app can also record these and remind us when they are due.

Now, We are not saying that the introduction of the app was easy. We had to find time in our already busy schedules to use the app. Only by using the app, can we reap the rewards that it offers!

Travel is back in the foreground! Our Property Management team is ready to welcome visitors to our villas. The team is proactive and as experts in the property management arena, we know that more holiday rentals, mean more cooking, and hence, Grease Trap Maintenance needs to be scheduled. So, let’s talk about it!

Importance of a Grease Trap

Grease traps are a requirement for any holiday rental accommodation. A blocked grease trap could fast become an expensive plumbing undertaking; therefore, scheduled grease trap cleaning could save our client’s money. The residual grease from cooking will harden in the pipes, leading to a steady grease buildup, and eventually blocked pipes. You also run the risk of having the sewage system blocked especially when your kitchen is without a grease trap, or more importantly having one that is not maintained often.

How the Grease Trap Works


Importance of Scheduled Cleaning

The installation of a grease trap is only the first step. A preventative maintenance schedule is then set up to ensure routine cleaning is conducted. Depending on the occupancy levels and the frequency of kitchen sink use, emptying and cleaning the grease trap forms part of our regular scheduled property maintenance in order to avoid blockages.

Tips from the PM Team

Scheduled cleaning of grease traps will keep them functioning efficiently. This saves our clients money in the long run by avoiding costly plumbing repairs.

Tip #1: Ensure correct installation

Some grease traps are ready-made out of a fiberglass design while some are actually built on the location of a concrete design. Some companies and contractors are not consistent in their workmanship with the construction of grease traps, and often time design flaws create a lot of issues, which result in having to clean the grease traps too frequently. The cleaning and other services required to clean blocked grease traps could end up creating substantial expenses.

Tip #2: Reduce solid food

Staff and guests alike are reminded to reduce solid material from going into the drain that will end up in the grease trap. While the grease trap is intended to hold the oils, fats and grease, the use of a strainer is your best bet to eliminate the excess solids entering the trap. Remove these solid food items from the dishes before being placing them in the sink. By keeping food out of the grease trap, will maximize the time between cleaning.

Tip #3: The grease trap is not for grease storage

We advise staff not to pour grease directly into the drain but instead store it in the appropriate containers. This helps to avoid the grease trap from reaching its maximum capacity too quickly. This will reduce the likelihood of having to deal with clogged drains.

Tip #4: Schedule Preventative Maintenance

Routine cleaning is essential and it is important to keep a maintenance schedule. Homeowners can get grease traps cleaned on a more infrequent basis by using less grease. It is still important to maintain minimum standards for cleaning times. Even if there’s not much oil, fat, or grease inside the tank, it will still turn rancid and emit a pungent odor. The property managers actually keep a log through a mobile work order app, which comes in handy for reporting to owners and tracking any technical issues.

Barbados continues to lead safe initiatives for persons to visit Barbados while mitigating risks. With the introduction of the Caribbean Travel Bubble, Caribbean travellers who present a valid pre-flight negative PCR test will no longer have to quarantine or have further testing done upon arrival in Barbados as of July 17, 2021. This is an excellent opportunity for the Caribbean people to visit their loved ones with less hassle while remaining safe.

The current list of countries that are on the Caribbean Travel Bubble are:

Monitoring and Control Caribbean Travel Bubble

Like Barbados, the countries included on the list have experienced low positive cases. Barbados’ Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kenneth George is an active stakeholder in the initiative. He has stated that they are measures in place to remove any country that no longer meets the criteria set by the Ministry of Health and Wellness.

Located on the West Coast of Barbados, just south of the world-famous Sandy Lane Estate, The Villa and The One are two contemporary beachfront apartments set directly on Paynes Bay. Join us for a quick insider view on lifestyle at St. James. The condos, the gorgeous beach, places nearby and then read our guest reviews below.

Crystal clear water, powdery white sand and stunning views are a hallmark of these two luxury condos. The Villa is on the ground floor of this supremely spacious development. We feel connected as we walked the floors and admired the views while the apartments were under construction. Floor to ceiling glass doors offer sea views, and a large pool gives you a choice of pool or beach. The finishes are impressive and minimalist décor is a theme throughout. There are five modern bedrooms with unique features. Our favourite? The master bedroom. It enjoys spectacular sea views and, there is direct access to the beachfront patio where you can unwind with Caribbean inspired sundowners. The One is located on the first floor and is equally as impressive. The views are amazing. The décor mirrors The Villa with marble, plush furnishings and soothing white and grey tones. Both apartments are air-conditioned throughout, but with the cooling sea breezes, you won’t need it. There is a guest cottage that makes up the fifth bedroom and is perfect for long term stays (great rates available) and persons considering the 12 Month Barbados Welcome Stamp visa.

Paynes Bay Beach, Barbados
This West Coast beach is a fave because of the location and the fact that it’s perfect for snorkeling and swimming. You can walk from the apartments to the beach in seconds. The beach is wide and long – over 2 miles and; there is plenty of room to spread out. Beach chairs and umbrellas are placed on the beach daily. Your staff can pack a picnic for you to spend a relaxing day at the beach. If you’re so inclined, take a walk south to discover the local fish market, grab a drink at ‘De Clay Oven’ or take a dip in waters not so close to home. Paynes Bay is a popular stop for catamarans. Locals and visitors alike enjoy a day on the seas with great food, music and the chance to swim with the turtles.

Places nearby
There is nowhere in Barbados that’s “far.” Visit these locations in 10 minutes or less. Try The Tides Restaurant for an upscale dining experience. Jus Grillin’ is a laid-back eatery in Holetown offering a variety of freshly grilled items. Next to it is Bean and Bagel an excellent breakfast spot. Visit Second Street for sushi at Naru or try the farm-to-table goodness at The Mews. Zaccios offers a sea to bar experience – the bartenders are great at their craft. Surfside Bar is another beachfront bar next door to Zaccios. West Bar in Limegrove is more upscale and a good experience. Get your fix of designer labels at Ralph Lauren, Breitling Boutique for luxury watches and pick up a sophisticated piece from Diamonds International. Timothy Oulton has an eclectic collection, and the Smart Store can take care of all your electronic needs. At Limegrove, there are many other options for clothing and other luxury items. Need a haircut? Fame barbershop in Holetown is a number one choice for gents haircuts. The Loft Spa & Blow-dry Bar is a perfect spot for ladies. Pick up a bottle of wine from Wine World, also in the same complex. We love the location of St. James, it is a short drive to golf, tennis and well… everything! We hope this has been helpful. Look forward to seeing you soon.
