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!

Wow a fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 adults celebrating my 50th birthday. We go to Barbados regularly and I have to say this villa is fabulous in a fantastic location. It is so spacious inside and out that with 7 of us it couldn't have been better . Bruce is very quick to respond to any issues of which we only had 1. And heather the property manager was very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back and all our friends who came to celebrate are planning trips back to the villa with their family's too.

A fantastic new property in a superb convenient area of the West Coast

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here over Christmas and New Year, a great property which is exactly as per the photos, very light and airy, 4 good sized bedrooms with 4 nice on-suite bathrooms, fantastic pool and outside area with all day sun, great West Coast location near to Mullins beach and all West Coast restaurants.

Car recommended.

Good communication from Bruce the owner, very professional throughout.

We would definitely stay here again.

Stunningly beautiful and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Gibbs Glade villa from Nov 25 6 Dec. The villa is located a short walk away from Mullins Bay and is beautiful with spacious bedrooms and a comfortable and beautifully furnished lounge, dining areas inside and outside as well as a large kitchen area, the pool and sun chairs compliments this villa making it a pleasant stay on the west coast.

I really loved this villa and would definitely like to stay there again. We were all made very welcomed by Heather who was also very helpful giving information to us when needed.

Bruce has been a pleasure from the moment we put in a request

I would highly recommend staying this beautiful home away free m home.

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.
