Fantastic position but the property itself needed some TLC
The property was situated in an ideal position on the beautiful West coast of Barbados. It had its own access to the beach with sun beds and an umbrella provided for the use of guests. The beach itself was uncrowded and one of the best that we experienced on the Island. The only slight disadvantage was the busy main coast road which could be a bit noisy at times but this was more than offset by the direct beach access.
However the property itself can only be described as a bit 'tired.' It was in need of some freshening up and could have easily been improved by some relatively minor attention to detail. For example, one of the wardrobe doors (which was on runners) did not open and close smoothly and tended to stick. There was a broken partition screen in the lounge area which was unsightly and could easily have been removed, there was no toaster in the property. When we had toast for breakfast, we had to use the grill which was slow and not very satisfactory. Although the oven worked fine, the fittings inside the oven were a big problem. They were (deliberately) loose and collapsed very easily. Only the tray which was used to cook the food kept the fittings apart and as soon as the tray was removed to take out the food, they collapsed and were fiddly to put back together. This was also a problem when we used the grill. The television did not work properly and although when we reported the problem to the owner, he apparently sent round someone to look at it, when that person arrived, she did not knock on the door and assumed that we were still in bed. This was despite the fact that I had spoken to the agent on the telephone about and hour earlier !!
We were subsequently advised by the agent to try disconnecting the television at the mains and then turning it back on. This initially appeared to work but subsequently every time we turned the TV back on there was a problem and we had to keep taking the mains plug out (which was not easy to access) and then turning the TV back on. That did not work every time and in the end we gave up trying to watch the TV. The problem was compounded by the fact
that there were no instructions about how to use any of the appliances in the house. There was a small stand alone oven in the kitchen but we were unable to use it because we did not know how it worked. Ironically there were some instructions for the TV but they made no sense. We would probably not recommend this property unless these issues were
Kate and I have been coming to Barbados on and off for thirty five years. We have found our "home away from home" at Little Seascape and have stayed there for four weeks every year for the last six years. We have a standing reservation with Sam and Diane every year forever. That should tell you how much we love the place. It's perfect for two people. The kitchen has everything you need for preparing meals. You can enjoy eating at the center island, a table in the living area, or the deck outside - all with good views. We had arranged cooks (who were great) for the first two years but, as we both cook, we found that we felt more at home cooking for ourselves or enjoying the many good restaurants nearby in Holetown, Speightstown, or on the main road toward Bridgetown. (Food shop in Holetown for the best selection). There's a great fish market a quarter of a mile south down the road (ask for "Smokey" - he's not very chatty but, he cuts and prepares your fish perfectly). The bed and bathroom are comfortable and the cable TV and WiFi work fine. The housekeeper and gardener (Youseen and Anthony) are both sweethearts. Couches and lounges are available both inside and on the deck for total relaxation. A few steps down a private path and you're on the best beach on the island - never many people and perfect sand and blue water. It's our opinion that this is as close as it gets to paradise without dying!
