Fantastic Holiday - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gibbs Glade August 2016 for 2 weeks. The villa is gorgeous, very spacious, with lovely size pool and garden area (the only thing that I would add personally is an outdoor seating area - they had an eight seater dining table but if you're spending your evening outside by the pool, would have been nice to have something comfier). They did have a lovely suite on the upstairs rear balcony, and 2 Muskoka chairs on the upstairs front balcony.

Tons of room for our party of 9, and besides a very small hiccup on our arrival which was quickly resolved we had an awesome stay (Heather the house manager lives directly across the road, just in case of any emergencies/questions) and all communications with Bruce prior to and during our stay were answered promptly.

Villa location was perfect, having been to Barbados on many previous occasions we knew the area very well. Villa offered two shortcuts to the beach, one to Gibbs Beach which is idyllic and the other to Mullins Beach which is busier, with lots of watersports on offer and water play area for kids. We never hired a car nor had to order many taxis, as we took either one of the short-cuts and jumped the bus into Holetown or Speightstown.

Our favorite eats this visit where Ninos by the Sea (Speightown) Santi (next to Lone Star) great food, great location overlooking beach with sunbeds, Lone Star for special occasion dinner, and Bar Carizma (Holetown) for tapas night with entertainment. Didn't make it to Bombas Beach Bar (will save that one for the next visit).

Highly recommend the villa to anyone thinking of enjoying the best of what Barbados has to offer, you won't regret it. The only thing I regret, is having to come home!

Thanks Bruce and team for a wonderful stay :)

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the kind words and constructive comments; we're always looking to improve and as a fairly new villa there is still much we can do to make the experience even better! Hope to see you again soon.

Visited Barbados numerous times but our 1st time in this area. Just returned home from this lovely villa and the pictures don't do it justice. It's very convenient for 2 beaches (Gibbs and Mullins) but found Gibbs the better, it was like our own private beach within a 5 minute walk. House is very large and accomodated our party of 9 comfortably. Heather was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Better curtains in the back rooms would be perfect and a nicer outside table as it was uncomfortable to sit on in but these are very minor things. Wouldn't hesitate to book again it's a lovely villa and lovely area. Thanks for a lovely holiday 👍🏻

Amazing house.

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for my husband and three older children for our holiday in Barbados. The pictures online made it look good but we were blown away when we got there. So much space and everything a family would need on holiday. Great location near to all local amenities, but in a quiet residential area.

Bruce was extremely helpful during the whole booking process and provided all the information I needed. Heather is nearby should you require anything.

If your looking at this house, book it now as it is worth it. Will make your holiday even more memorable.

What a house!!! I traveled with my family (husband and 3 children) and another family of 4 and the house was just amazing. Heather the property manager was simply lovely and Bruce the owner of the house was very attentive to our needs. If you've stumbled on this property, look no further and book this house! A short drive to gorgeous beaches and the area is so safe. I already looked up dates in 2017 just to find out the week I wanted is booked. I may need to book my 2018 vacation now. I enjoyed myself and can't wait to go back! Thank you Bruce and Heather!!!!

Fantastic villa, beautifully furnished, in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from the most fantastic week in Barbados spent at this fabulous villa. The house is in the ideal location, 5 mins walk from two of the best beaches on the island and within a short drive of Holetown and some of the best restaurants. The house is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable with all mod cons. The layout is brilliantly thought out - even with 8 of us staying the villa felt spacious and comfortable - and the high ceilings and large windows make it cool, light and airy. All the bedrooms are spacious and have an ensuite bathroom. The main living area leads out onto a large terrace where we spent much of our time BBQ-ing and lazing by the pool. This is a wonderful villa - I simply can't recommend it highly enough. We are already planning our return visit!!

Fabulous villa very well placed

  • 5 of 5

Spent 8 nights at this almost new villa in Jan 2016. 3 couples and a single guest all very comfortably accommodated in the 4 en-suite bedrooms.

Well fitted very workable kitchen, stunning double height central living space arranged as a formal dining hall, small TV lounge, study and cloakroom make up the ground floor.

Off road parking on private driveway behind electric gates very useful for drivers. Great pool - very refreshing. Would benefit from more sun loungers.

This house is great for families or couples sharing. Excellent location just a few minutes walk from either Mullins Beach or Gibbs Bay.

Very helpful housekeeper lives nearby. Great communication before and after our stay with the owner.

Highly recommended.
