in Barbados list 'long term rentals' on their books. Please
note that most will only take on tenants that require six
months or longer, although some seem to list places that
will accommodate travellers fro one to three months. Most
tourists are only able to stay on the island for a maximum
of three months (and certainly cannot work without a permit)

see the useful links shown further down this page, explaining
how to extend a stay in Barbados, immigration procedures

property on the island long term, or taking out utilities

Barbados tips about finding long term property rentals in
advice would be to go to the island, staying in holiday
accommodation, and buy the Nation (or Advocate) newspaper
and then go house hunting! Alternatively place a wanted
ad in the Nation with your email and see who contacts you.
Its so difficult finding a place before you get there as
photos wont show you the area etc - although we will be
happy to offer advice. The Nation has a web site and listings
may be available on the site - - let us know! www.nationnews.com
However if you cant do that then why not
try an agency. You may be paying a little more, but you
will know that certain standards have to be upheld, and
the place should be well maintained.
Visitors coming to Barbados should provide proof of adequate
means of support during their stay.
