Two Words - Simply Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Baz have every base covered. Many before us have sung their praises and we fully endorse every comment. Little Bimshire is home from home (except the weather!) with every need catered for. There's simply nothing lacking as Julie and Baz have thought of everything and obviously care very much about the safety, comfort and enjoyment of their guests. Little Bimshire is wonderfully located just a few hundred yards from the busy shopping area and beach in Holetown. Just a short walk away in fact. If you're thinking about holidaying in Barbados, look no further than Little Bimshire - JUST DO IT!

Thank you so much, Julie and Baz for everything and making our holiday perfect,

Best wishes for the future, The Downing's and Ellison's.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay. Baz & Julie are friendly, welcoming & can't do enough for you. The villa is spacious, clean & has everything you need. It's only a very short walk to the beach, shops & restaurants. A lovely holiday, thank you

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival there is a full welcome pack with everything you need for your first few days. The villa is superbly equipped and all your basics are there from washing up liquid, dish washer tablets, condiments, pool towels, cereal, tea and coffee, toilet rolls etc... Beds are comfy and there's A/C in the bedrooms. Bathrooms have lovely thick towels and quality hand wash...Little Bimshire is a 5 minute walk to the supermarket, bars, restaurants and beach of Holetown. Baz and Julie are perfect hosts, Baz was happy to pick up heavier groceries ( we didn't have a car) and Julie brought our washing in when it rained, folded and aired. One day it did rain on the washing; Julie rinsed it and spun it off and put it out again for us!! In the lounge there is a tv with loads of English channels, a DVD player and CD player. There's also a huge speaker you can take out by The pool, hook up your iPhone or Android phone and have music out there!! The pool is shared with Baz and Julie, however we didn't see them often and when we did they were great company! They are happy to advise on trips, taxis, places to eat etc and really did make our experience at Little Bimshire 1st class!! Thank you both so much for an amazing holiday!! We will be back!! ( in the words of the teminator)

Superb value, great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The property is much bigger than we imagined and has a real feel of spaciousness, helped by the high ceilings. The lounge and dining areas are all very well equipped. All three bedrooms are large and easily 'double' rooms, with en suites for each.

The property was spotlessly clean and the outside area also. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen has all appliances you would expect in your own home, including a large fridge freezer including an ice dispenser.

Outside there are ample tables, chairs and sunbeds.

Barry and Julie are the owners and live in the adjoining property - they are such a nice couple, very welcoming and friendly - they make you feel at home and they genuinely seem to enjoy having guests. They were very helpful in terms of their local knowledge. We had an issue with a car we hired and they were able to help get that resolved.

We used all three rooms as we were three couples - this property is great value for money and I have rated as 5 stars, largely because of the owners approach to their guests, which for us was perfect.

Property is very comfortable and in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Property owners are very nice and extremely quick to respond to any queries or requests. Our flights were very delayed and they were understanding and had some supplies waiting for us when we got there. For myself this location was perfect. It is very close to brand new updated supermarket, west coast beach - best beaches on the island, shopping plazas with movie theater. Plus you have access to a pool at your front door which my daughter loved. My only drawback on the property was not having a dryer in the house for laundry. But that’s a personal issue as I like to travel with as little as possible and just do laundry. Most travelers don’t want to do laundry on their vacation! Would definitely stay on this property again

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your lovely review, it was a pleasure having you stay at Little Bimshire, with regard to there being no dryer, due to the climate in Barbados we have never found it necessary, most things dry in the sun in a couple of hours or so, especially as we do have 2 Large Rotary lines in the garden and for the occasions it does rain there is also a will mounted rotary dryer in the car port and we find washing drys on that even when it’s raining outside, but your point is noted regarding its convenience

Fantastic house, fabulous pool, great area and amazing hosts - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Baz and Julie are just fabulous! They can't do enough for you and are the most wonderful hosts anybody could ask for. They go above and beyond what anybody would expect, to make your holiday the best it can be! They made us feel so welcome and comfortable and we could just be ourselves without worry. We really cannot thank them enough.

The house is perfect in every respect. It's in a great location just 5 minutes from a lovely beach and all the wonderful activity in Holetown. A short drive away are other beautiful beaches and the location is so central that getting from one end of the Island to another is easy and quick by car. The buses are also regular and go to all major destinations and can be caught at the end of the road.

The pool is fantastic - a great size with shaded seating areas around the edge. The kids played for hours at a time in the pool! Julie and Baz also provided them with a myriad of wonderful toys - water pistols, floats and slides! They were so happy in the pool and would have stayed in every day if we had let them!

The house has good sized rooms and the open plan kitchen/diner/lounge is a fantastic social place to be with the family. Every room is en-suite and a good size. The kitchen is well equipped and provides the basics such as salt, pepper, dishwasher tablets, tea bags, coffee, sugar etc. Baz and Julie welcomed us with a glass of wine, beer and a chat on our arrival. Baz even drove us down the road to collect take away pizza! So kind!

I really can't recommend the house, location and the hosts enough - they made our holiday extra special and you will not regret booking this place if you are holidaying in Barbados. THANK YOU BAZ AND JULIE - YOU REALLY MADE OUR HOLIDAY THE BEST IT COULD BE. We will definitely be returning, in fact, we intend to book very soon for next year!

Owner's Response: Wow! what can we say, our aim is to make our guests as comfortable as possible, and to enjoy their stay in Barbados and it sounds as though we succeeded. We have to say it was such a pleasure having you all stay at Little Bimshire, and we can assure you we enjoyed having you all here as much as you appear to have enjoyed your stay, the kids (Young and older) were an absolute delight and great fun, and we can't put into words how much we look forward to you all returning Baz & Julie
