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!

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!

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.

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.
