Wonderful family holiday
This is a fantastic property is an amazing location. Lots of outdoor space so lots of options for eating al fresco. Lovely pool and Lucy has thought of everything with snorkels and masks, boogie boards and everything you need for the holiday. Natasha who looks after the property was fantastic-such a nice lady and very helpful. Thoroughly recommended and we are coming back next year!
Holiday of a lifetime!
We chose Indigo Bay for a family holiday in January 2015. Upon arrival we were greeted by Glenis who showed us around the villa and operation of alarm etc. Our first impression was that the property was smaller than the website suggests however next morning when we inspected the exterior and surroundings, that became irrelavent. The location is perfect and the views spectacular. The outside area is a good size and if you want to explore the coast you only need to walk through a gate and you are on a fairly quiet beach.
We stayed for 3 weeks and purchased groceries at Costuless in Warrens or for smaller purchases, the supermarket in Holetown is great.
The property was maintained and cleaned regularly (Monday, Wednesday & Friday's) by Natasha and is a delightful lady. Although she is there completing her duties, she is discreet and respectful and an asset to the villa owner. The outside is maintained by "Smiley" and his duties are to keep the exterior tidy and the plants watered. Smiley does like a chat but is also a knowledgable guy so if you need Jet skis or similar, he will help you.
We only dined out on five occasions as the barbecue was excellent and with the quality of the accommodation and views couldn't find a reason to not utilise the setting. When we did dine out, we would recommend the following, Lone Star (Excellent), Tides (Very Good) and within walking distance Scarlets for a casual dinner with great cocktails.
Locally there are great golf courses and would recommend Royal Westmoreland and the best day out was a catamaran trip on Stiletto. We did the 3 hour trip and snorkelling with the turtles was superb. If you have a hire car, a day trip to Bathsheba and Crane Beach is stunning and the views are magnificent, particularly if the surf is up.
If you fancy some live music in a beach bar on a Sunday evening, head to Mullins Beach Bar & Grill. Get there for 5 o'clock and watch the sunset before the band start playing a mixture of music suitable for all ages.
The only suggestion I would make to the owner is to provide a safe and to improve the cooling option in the kitchen as it does get extremely warm if you do use the oven.
In summary, a wonderful modern design villa in a great location and will definitely be returning as soon as possible. Best holiday ever!
Very Nice indeed!
Beautiful place that is modern, on the beach and has great functional outside space. The morning views from master suite were outstanding! The house is on the small side for a 3 bedroom villa (2 double bedrooms upstairs, one queen down stairs) but you will spend most of your time outside! The wifi works well in and out so easy to stream music etc good cable tv with access to many kids/sports channels. Excellent gas BBQ grill outside, go to Paynes Bay fish market where "Young" will sell you lovely fresh fish. BBQ is like new and house is kept very clean by Natasha. There are pool and beach toys for kids, beds for beach with comfy cushions (needs a beach umbrella though). Great location, close to Cliff, CinCin and not that far from Sandy Lane/Holetown, not rushing back to Il Tempio for food (opposite Jordan’s) but owner is very nice/good with kids and decent happy hour. Jordan’s Supermarket and Doctor very close which was handy as one of our daughters got an ear infection. You are on the main coastal road and there is some noise but on the other hand you always have the relaxing sound of the ocean on your door step! Night times tend to be pretty quiet and calm….Car park gate was not working (would be great if this was shaded) and we had workers come several times to work on it, but I think it will be working for anyone who rents this next time. Garden/Beach Shower was also not working but understand that too will be fixed. Any other problems were dealt with quickly by Natasha and Owner but there isn’t a villa manager. I would recommend this villa for families with 2 kids (bringing grandparents could also work well too) but 6 adults might find it a bit too cosy.
We only stayed in Barbados for a few days but plan to return very very soon because we found the Island to be a great destination for a holiday. This was made even better by our stay at Indigo Bay which is a truly astounding Villa with views to die for. It has everything you would wish to have in an accommodation and although we leave today we are really hoping for an air traffic control strike to allow us to stay for as long as possible. The design of this property is first class and the interior is second to none.
Well Worth The Stay
This property is a little gem! Though the indoor space is not large, it is wonderfully appointed inside and out. The property is wonderfully situated for sunsets, crowd free beach, and safely exposed to local life.
We enjoyed a Banks (or two) each day at the small Bajan bar directly across the street, and world class food just minutes
up/down the road.
Stargazing from the master deck is a must, and one of the things we found truly special about the well thought out design of Indigo.
The only consideration to know is that the property does sit with the main road to the rear and there is certainly traffic noise by day. This concerned us slightly when we arrived, but by late night things really quiet down and no sleep is lost.
We'd recommend this property for a couple or small family who is looking for the ideal beachfront setting that has great outdoor space and centrally located conveniences.
Stunning beach side property with all mod cons!
We had an incredibly special and spoiling week in this lovely beachside property.
The house is beautifully finished and has everything you need both inside & out. With three extra outside area - dining area, drinking area & bbq area plus the swimming pool and not to mention the beach itself - it is just fab! The master bedroom has the most stunning views (as well as ensuite!) - who needs the Sandy Lane!!! The other two bedrooms have their own shower rooms/loos.
It was always a tough decision whether to sit by the pool and enjoy the sun or to walk out of the garden gate and onto the beach! The house even provides four loungers for the beach too! It is a lovely white sand beach with some good snorkelling to enjoy.
The owner recommended an excellent driver and during the day, we would sometimes head up the coast to the various beaches - Mullens - being a particular favourite - just 10 minutes away. She also recommended a boat outing and we had two fun afternoons heading up & down the coast looking at all the various hotels, enjoying some more snorkelling and finally a trip on a sofa boat - serious fun!
The house is very close to Holetown - with some excellent restaurants close by to enjoy in the evenings - Cincin was very special.
Although the property is just next to the road, you are hardly aware of it and your eyes are drawn to the stunning beach/sea views. It is NOT noisy at night at all!
I am already planning my return!
