Barbados, the easternmost island of the West Indies, is approximately 100 miles from its nearest neighbors, Saint Vincent and Saint Lucia. Beach View is on three acres in Paynes Bay, near Holetown on the island’s west coast. It has 36 two- and three-bedroom residences in four buildings that serve as hotel rooms when owners are away. Units, from 1,372 to 1,817 square feet, are sold furnished and feature patios or balconies with ocean views. Landlords, who receive part of the rental income, cannot use their accommodation for more than three months a year. There are two swimming pools, one for children, the other for adults.
