Perfect and Idyllic in every way

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property. Large, Grand, Clean, great kitchen and Barbecue, washer and dryer. Housekeeper once a week. TV room with Apple TV for when it was too hot outside. Fabulous pool, large and clean, private and not over looked. Cleaned once a week. Great gardens, tended once a week. Off road parking for several cars.

Situated in a quiet road very close to Gibbes and Mullins beaches, both very easily accessible in walking distance ... no more than 10 minutes to either. (Gibbes is fabulous). An easy drive to Speightstown or Holetown.

We were only 3 and rattled around the house a bit. There is easily enough space to sleep 8 and still have lots of personal privacy.

Heather lives directly across the street and looks after guests staying at the house. She is great in every way. One night there was a forecast of a tropical storm, and a risk that electricity would stop working. Heather came across with a torch and candles for us ... just in case.

One small negative - my gin and tonic became slightly warm one afternoon ;-)

Highly recommended, we felt incredibly happy to have "discovered" such a fabulous Barbados property, and we would certainly try to re-book if we were back on the island.

Loved it !!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is stunning, just as beautiful as the pictures! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We felt very comfortable as the house was very accommodating. All of our needs were met and Heather (the manager) was of great assistance to us. Nice location, a short walk to Mullins and Gibbs beaches. The kitchen was fully equipped so we were able to cook meals. The bedrooms/bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. To top it all off the pool was the perfect way cool down during the warm Barbados summer days. I would definitely come back again. Love it!

Awesome stay at Gibbs

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this villa for a week for a family vacation and celebration of a milestone birthday. There were 8 adults and a baby, and we were very comfortable here. Tons of space, beautiful pool, easy walk to two beaches, and it was a perfect place to host our birthday celebration with a few family and friends. The guidebook for the villa provides every imaginable piece of information you might need about the villa itself and the surrounding area.

The house manager across the street was always available and checked in regularly to see if we were doing okay. Our host, Bruce, was wonderful to deal with - always answered our emails right away and was very helpful, flexible and accommodating. We needed to stay a bit longer after checkout and he was happy to accommodate us. From our initial inquiry about the villa to the time that we checked out, our host was amazing to deal with.

The villa is in a quiet residential area, so if you are looking for a relaxing family vacation like we were, this is a great place! We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an excellent stay in Barbados. I traveled with my husband, 2 toddlers (18 mo & 4yrs), my brother and sister in law, a few friends and my mom. The house had everything that we needed, inclusive of a grill and washer and dryer. Heather, the house manager was very friendly and offered to take us for groceries at the local store. We cooked breakfast and dinner almost every night and used the pool daily. We walked to Gibbs Beach and down by Mullins Beach for dinner one night. Everything was nice and close. We arranged taxis easily to go into Bridgetown and to the airport. We would come again!

As advertised, and then some!!

  • 5 of 5

We found this property online, and couldn't believe it would be as good as all the reviews described. Having thought it through, and reading even more reviews, we decided that this was the place for us!

There is little more to say about this villa that hasn't already been said, it is superbly built and equipped, in a beautiful location. So much better value than the inordinately expensive hotels on the West Coast, so much better to have your independence to either self-cater, or eat out, as you prefer.

Both Bruce, the owner, and Heather, the Housekeeper were incredibly helpful, both in the booking enquiries, and while we were there.

Undoubtedly, this will be a great choice for families, and/or several

couples, with so much space around you. We were only two couples, and

felt like we were enjoying an almost celebrity lifestyle!

As a last word, I think it speaks for itself that we have already booked for next year, as this villa, not surprisingly, is already being booked up that far ahead!

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is amazing - there were only two of us so we did rattle around a little, but we loved the space, layout and the fab pool.

We had a couple of teething problems with the safe and the internet but the housekeeper went out of her way to sort everything out for us.

The villa has everything you need, is well looked after and is in a great location.

We would definitely go again!
