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!

Beautiful villa, very helpful and friendly owners, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Travelled to the villa as a party of 6 consisting of 4 adults and 2 children. We got hopelessly lost on the way from the airport and phoned baz who was extremely helpful and even came and met us and took us to the villa. Without him we would probably still be lost now! Julie & baz made us all feel extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble, everything is provided even down to washing powder and adapter plugs. The villa is absolutely beautiful, well maintained and the owners went out of their way to accommodate us and our requests. Soya products were sourced for us and extra pillows provided. I cannot thank the owners enough and I would love to stay there again in the future. It's centrally located, right by the shopping centre and there are several good restaurants within easy walking distance however we found a car very useful throughout the holiday. There is a huge variety of pool inflatables which the children absolutely loved, games, dvds and music are also located in the villa. The pool is lovely, everywhere is very clean. The birds were lovely to wake upto also. The only thing we couldn't find was an ice cream scoop which was not the end of the world. I highly recommend this villa. Hopefully we will be able to visit again.

Perfectly located property, five minute walk from the sandy beaches, friendly bars and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

A massive thanks to Baz and Julie, we've just had a fantastic stay at their Villa, Little Bimshire.

They really couldn't have been more accomadating and helpful. The Villa is spacious, very large living dining area, three bedrooms en-suit, all very well furnished and very clean & tidy.

A good size swimming pool, before or after going to the beach was also well used.

With only a five minute walk to the sandy beaches, restaurants, friendly bars, supermarket and a great shopping Mall. Holetown really has lots to offer all age groups and Little Bimshire is a perfectly placed and affordable Villa to enjoy Barbados. And with the wonderful hospitality of Baz and Julie you really couldn't wish for a better holiday.

Amazing property in holetown

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic vacation we had at little bimshire, julie and baz were amazing hosts, the property had everything you could ask for we were there for four weeks and had gorgeous weather. Ragamuffins is a must for the drag queen show on Sunday nights and also the one love bar next door for $2.50 beers, also happy hour at zaccios right on the beach with amazing sunsets. The beaches were beautiful and only a 5 min walk from the house as was the supermarket and the mall. Food was quite expensive to eat out and also in the supermarket I would advise people to take as many basic supplies as you can with you.

Thanks again julie and baz for a great stay hopefully we will be back soon and congrats again on the birth of your newest grandson .

Nothing Little about this Bimshire!

  • 5 of 5

A very generously proportioned three bedroomed three bathroomed villa. Great open planned living area, the entire property is well maintained and cleaned. The hosts, Baz and Julie are a pleasure and nothing seems too much trouble . Their knowledge of the island and local area were invaluable. Holetown itself has plenty of restaurants and bars and Little Bimshire is perfectly located to all of them and all major bus routes. So wished we had been staying longer and next time we will!
