myself and my husband had been travelling all over Europe for many years,on our first visit to Barbados in 1994 we feel in love with the Island and its friendly people.

we purchased property that needed refurbishment and enjoyed doing this over a number of years,Our aim was to get our home to a standard where guests would also feel comfortable.We ourselves spend our winter months on this beautiful island and are always sad to leave.

Relaxing Holiday, with fun just down the street

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin, Teresa & Colm couldn't of been more helpful from start, during & finish of our holiday. We've had the most relaxing time in this lovely villa, its a home away from home. There was everything there we needed for our stay. On arrival we were met by June ( housekeeper), Teresa had arranged for her to buy us some groceries & the beers were chilling in the fridge. June showed us around & made herself contactable for our whole stay. The pool is fantastic & kept clean each week by Paul who was very entertaining. We spent most of our time in & around the pool. Although the villa is near The Gap its so quiet & a sun trap idea for sunbathing. Even the garden provided entertainment with its wildlife, monkeys, humming birds, dragon flies, lizards & chickens. There are shops near by that sell everything. Massey stores (supermarket) are brilliant & provide a free taxi back to your door. Reggie buses & Taxi's with (no.11 or no.3) are amazing & just $2 each. Dover beach just 5 mins walk away is stunning, there are loads of local eateries & shops. There is also a Virgin Hut offering tours with a very lovely English lady (Chris), who loves to share her 18 years of living in Barbados knowledge, doesn't matter if you are not with Virgin. Not forgetting the food vans selling local food, well nice.

I could go on & on & on.......

Would definitely go back & highly recommend this villa, was so sad to leave.

Kind regards to Teresa & Colm

Absolutely awesome

  • 5 of 5

Well what can we say, from the moment we enquired about this fabulous Villa to the moment we left Barbados, Teresa & Colm were totally amazing and accommodating in every way. The Villa itself was absolutely perfect and the pool was awesome, we were devastated when it was time to leave. It was a 5 minute walk to the Gap, which had lots of amazing shops, restaurants and of course the beautiful Dover Beach & cocktail bar, where we enjoyed many Pina Coladas. You can catch the Reggae bus on the main road for $2, which is also only a 5 minutes walk away, ideal for a trip into Bridgetown. The villa itself is set back from the busy Gap in a lovely relaxing & quiet area, but as said before not to far away from the hustle and bustle of Barbados life. Teresa was absolutely fantastic and responded immediately with any queries we had, prior, during and at the end of our holiday. She even arranged a replacement BBQ for us, as the old one had broken. She gave us some excellent recommendations for place to eat, car hire services and lots of other suggestions that proved value for money for us. I would not hesitate to stay in this beautiful villa again, the pool was stunning and sun came up around 7.15am, where we enjoyed our breakfast on the decking and in the evening BBQ's on the terrace as the sun went down. Teresa and Colm were faultless as hosts and the housekeeper and pool man were really friendly and helpful too. Thank you again Teresa and Colm, we will have no hesitation recommending this property to family and friends in the future. We only hope we will be able to visit Barbados again and stay in this stunning place. Kind regards Jo and family x

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely awesome! The hosts are such amazing people and really went out of their way to help us out in so many ways from arranging for MC Turtle Man to come to the house and explain his tours to making sure we had some food and drink supplies when we arrived!

The pool and outdoor area is a must and we used it every day close to everything! We will definitely be back!

Thank you guys so much!

This is a wonderful place to stay, located very close to St Lawrence Gap and yet quiet and homely. The pool is excellent for family and the Master bedroom (opening to the veranda) an ideal place to lazily monitor kids having fu. Highly recommended!

Just Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We're half way through our 2 week holiday and this is a stunning location, only 5 minuted walk from the beach. The accommodation is as described in the advert. Booking was trouble-free and the owners were very heloful with useful infor befire we arruved. There's every amenity you could require and it's a real home from home. I will definitely be back and would really recommend this accommodation as a perfect base for exploring the island or simply staying in and making yourself at home!
