About Marilyn & Bob

Marilyn and Bob are retired professionals( Electrical Engineer, Secondary School Teacher and Department Head(32 years) who enjoy a Love and Life filled with activity , especially music. Both love to entertain in the small theatre/music world. They especially enjoy doing duets( Elvis/Anne Margret, Johnny and June.They keep active by doing as much of their own maintenance as possible

Marilyn & Bob purchased this villa in 1980

Why Marilyn & Bob chose Ocean City

Teach'n'song is located in a small , quiet ,safe, growing community approximately 10 minutes drive from the airport. The neighbours in the community are often seen out walking and love to stop and chat to visitors, The view and the sounds of the sea and the whistling frogs make the area very special. We first visited the island in 1972 and 'fell in love' with Barbados and the people. We purchased our first home in 1974 at Sunset Crest in Holetown.. St. Philip (where Teach 'n' song is located in Ocean City ) is a magnificent parish, with less traffic noise, Less rain, Fewer (almost Nil) mosquitoes. Wonderful easterly breezes, and genuinely friendly people. We have easy access to Trimart Grocery Store, Kirton's Gas and convenience store, Mr. Fields Rum shop, Maycare pharmacy and Doctor's Office

What makes this villa unique

The villa features solid coral stone walls. This provides a very quiet sound proof environment, As well there is a cooling effect from the Coral Stone . The use of the old solid sugar factory Beams and stone walls reminds one of an Old castle. The villa was cleverly designed and built by a Danish Artist who has left his mark on the villa with unique deign features with arches and step down showers and Sunken living room/lounge area. We love the serenity.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We did have an absolutely wonderful vacation!!! Thank you so much. I would love to come back.

Saved our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Marilyn and Bob's Villa Teach-N-Song saved our vacation.

After a brazen and ridiculous break-in at another Villa, we had the great fortune of moving into Teach-N-Song.

Bob & Marilyn made an otherwise horrible start to a vacation so much better and their house was terrific.

While the house is not directly on the beach, it is perched atop a cliff, allowing you to sit pool-side and watch/listen to the waves crash below you. There's a lovely, warm, calming breeze at almost all hours. While we were there in March, the breeze was ideal and never too much.

You'll want to travel to the other side of the island for the beach anyway as swimming is not recommended on the East coast. A car is needed. The Crane Resort is a quick drive away.

The house is open and airy. Our party of six felt comfortable and not cramped.

Thank you Marilyn & Bob for saving our Barbados trip. Until next time!

Owner's Response: Hello N and Kate, Thank you so much for your candid review. So pleased that you contacted us and that your vacation ended up a pleasant one. We were so fortunate to be able to accommodate your party and turn around your vacation into a positive pleasant experience as the island has so much to offer . We did not want you to leave with a bad taste regarding the island. So pleased that the group had an enjoyable busy week taking in lots of sites around the island. We hope to see you all again. Sincerely Bob and Marilyn

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The title speaks for itself. If you're looking for a villa that has a fantastic view, warm breezes from the Atlantic Ocean, then you need to visit Teach N Song. We came down with a party of 6 and we were all amazed at how this place looks. There is enough room in the villa where you are not bumping in to one another. The owners Marilyn and Bob are great people. Very helpful, there if you need them. They also arranged for us to get a rental van. We were met at the airport and taken to the villa (short drive). Back to the villa now... Great view of the ocean. You could wake up at sunrise and have a coffee outside and hear the waves crashing on the rocks and feel that nice breeze. Long story short.. We will be back next year. Thank you Marilyn and Bob

Stunning Views and sounds! Best value in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

This has been our second stay at this villa, and again it was great! Our first was for a week in July of 2013. This time we took our 14 year old son with us for Xmas and New Years (Two weeks)

The pictures cannot depict the sights and sounds of this property. The constant ocean breeze, the waves crashing into the cliff, the view from the pool make this a truly unique location.

For those who have not have done a vacation home rental before before and have done the resort thing, this is the only way to go. We have done home rentals in Hawaii, Florida and other locations as well as resorts in Cuba; Panama, Aruba, Jamaica, and Mexico. ) You are on your own schedule and the pool(swimwear optional) does not close at 6 and you have total privacy. Your morning coffee and breakfast views will set the tone for yet another perfect day.

I always put a great deal of research before picking a vacation rental and had some concerns looking at pictures of home before we rented. This was mostly the fact that the rear of the home facing the ocean has no windows or screens.(Only the sides and rear of home do).(Shutters and iron gates provide security) Being a seasoned traveler the concern is of course insects! . Not the case here! Not a bug as the constant breeze keeps them away. (One of the main reasons we returned as sitting by or in the pool at night looking at the stars is magical)

The owners Bob and Marilyn are great and will promptly deal with any little issue that may arise.

Ena the housekeeper is a treasure and she will come in to clean once a week during your stay. We highly recommend you get her to cook for you during your stay. Her curry chicken is amazing!!!

. Bryce car rental has been our choice both times and their rates and service are excellent. Our first time they drove us to villa from airport (5 to 7 minute drive). If you have a Garmin GPS go to Bajan maps and download maps for the island free! Google' meat permit for Barbados,' as steak on Island is pricey and not very good. (Bob and Marlyn can provide you with details)

Beach's on Island are great. Our favorite is Miami or Enterprise (same thing and 15 minute drive) Try the Roti at Mr. Delicious on beach.

Would recommend Cannon Charters for deep sea fishing and Segway Barbados is a lot of fun. Highly recommend the Island and this rental!!!

Limited space or would write more!!

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Teach 'N Song. The villa is as it states and has spectacular views !. We had everything we needed there. Marilyn and Bob are wonderful people and are at hand if we needed anything. The villa was wonderful pool was great. We loved to sit and watch the turtles and fishing boats from the pool. The location was great. I would recommend staying at this villa as this is the best we have stayed at. Ena the housekeeper did a wonderful job. Ocean city is a safe & friendly place to stay on the Island and we would recommend this Villa for anyone. The villa had everything we were sad to leave.

Exceeded our Expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property for our family vacation. We were a little concern as we've never booked a vacation like this before but it exceeded our expectations. The home was clean and inviting. The owners did an excellent job at providing everything that met our needs. We rented a car per their recommention and it was the best way to get around the island. I've already recommended this villa to my friends and family. Barbados has the friendliest people and we will go back there soon. Bob and Marilyn, thank you for making this the best family vacation for our family.

Owner's Response: Dear Christian and Tessa, Apologies for not responding earlier to this wonderful review. We had some e-mail issues and did not receive notification regarding this. I have just learned how to make an updated response. We are truly honoured that we were able to go beyond your expectations with regard to your family vacation on Barbados at our villa. You are very right about the friendliness of the people on the island. We very much appreciate you informing your friends as well on our behalf. Please do come again to this beautiful Island. Perhaps this next time we will be able to meet your precious family. Sincerely, Marilyn and Bob

Charming Owners, Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were remarkable in sharing information, maintaining contact and preparing us for the Island's adventures. We had some challenges finalizing the rental car and Marilyn facilitated the process to make sure things were arranged. Very charming and willing hosts.

The villa is all about location. Perched on a cliff, the views are breathtaking. We enjoyed complete privacy when using the pool and sunning on the deck. The villa was very well equipped allowing for any level of desired self-sufficiency.

If you are considering this location, although the bus service is well developed, I would suggest a rental car as it eases getting around. But basic amenities, such as groceries, are within walking distance.

We were able to completely relax and for that I am very grateful to have found this property. You will not be disappointed.
