Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time from booking the villa to the moment we left. Bruce was most helpful and very quick to respond to any questions we had. Our every need was catered for. The villa itself is amazing with plenty of room and located in a quiet area moments from the beach. We will be returning next year!!!

Thank you for helping us make great memories.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this villa with a group of girlfriends, and we had an amazing time. The villa is simply stunning, and has everything you could possibly need. The layout is brilliant with all four bedrooms having lovely Ensuite bathrooms.

The garden and pool area are also beautiful, with enough sun beds for everyone. Although there is not much in the Gibbes area it was a short walk to the beach and the main road where we could easily jump on one of the many buses. Also just a short taxi ride to Holetown or Speightstown.

Heather who manages the property was so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome when we arrived, And the booking process was also super easy, with Bruce promptly answering any questions we had.

Could not fault this property in any way. The only downside was that our stay was too short !! 😕 But we would all love to return one day 😁

A wonderful four weeks at 1 Gibbes Glade villa

  • 5 of 5

Four couples shared this lovely home for a month. The house is less than five years old, beautifully decorated and is ideally designed for sharing among couples. Each bedroom has a private bathroom and its own air conditioning unit. However, we loved leaving the windows open and just using the ceiling fans at night.

The pool and outdoor dining area were well used. The pool is a generous size and is surrounded by lovely landscaping. The pool was cleaned regularly, a gardener tended to the yard twice a week and a housekeeper came weekly to do laundry and general cleaning. We felt like royalty!

The information on the house says it is a 5-minute walk to the beach - and it is! There are two nice beaches, Gibbes and Mullins, each a 5-minute walk from the house.

Heather, the property manager, lives across the street and was extremely helpful in answering our questions and making suggestions. Anything we needed at the house was promptly addressed (ex.propane refill for the barbeque). Another plus - she's great company!

The property owner was a pleasure to deal with via email, addressing our questions thoroughly and promptly. He provided extensive guest notes which were very helpful in finding taxis, restaurant recommendations and other helpful information about the island.

We highly recommend everything about this home - its location, its design and the services provided.

Awesome Home; Awesome in situ Help. The Best.

  • 5 of 5

We kind of checked into the house by stages, a simple request for early entry to leave some stuff there was very quickly OK'd along with a repeat of the contact number for Heather who would be looking after the house for us. Everything went very well; smoothly and pain free with Heather putting our perishable stuff into the refrigerator for us while Rick and I kicked back a few Banks Beers at Mullins Beach Bar, just a five minute walk away, and waited for the regular entry time to the house once the cleaning was finished. At that time we kicked back by the pool until the rest of our crew arrived from the airport in the early evening.

We had a great family reunion on the Saturday evening and that set the tone for the rest of the two weeks. We have absolutely no complaints about the value for money - it was excellent - or the quality of our accommodations since they were great.

Heather and Bruce provided all kinds of local information for us both ahead of time and after we were there and this really added to our overall enjoyment.

I could go on for hours detailing all the good bits but I think I'll just finish with the most important bit. "If you need a four bedroom house in Barbados I really do not think you will find a better place than this beauty." That said we do of course hope to visit again in the near future.

Look no further!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property in an amazing place! The villa is equipped with everything you will need from kitchen utensils to beach towels to even sun creams! The pictures don't do the villa justice it is absolutely amazing from the moment you walk through the door! It's a 5min walk to 2 lovely beaches and if you don't fancy that you can relax by the lovely pool! Heather who manages the property is such a lovely woman and was able to help us out with any request we had and if you get a chance try and visit bar cheers where her husband serves up some delightful food! We had an amazing time! Thank you Bruce and heather!

Great location and delivered everything promised

Lovely spaces for relaxing together or having personal time - loved the balconies and patio. Good to have the choice between indoor and outdoor dining. Well maintained grounds and pool.
