Memorable, romantic, not to be missed experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay! The villa was exactly as indicated; the view and general ambiance of the setting were spectacular. We especially enjoyed the the privacy of the deck and plunge pool and watching the sun and moon rise. The kitchen was well supplied and the entire villa was spotless. David responded promptly to resolve an issue with the power, and proved very pleasant, and most willing to spend time with us chatting about the Island and answering questions.

Ocean City Cliffside Rental is ... Bliss

  • of 5

So sad to have to leave the beautiful island of Barbados and this amazing property. The house was everything we could have wanted, and more. The view is out of a picture book, a quiet and private place to stay, but still so close to everything we wanted to see and do. David and Leith could not have been any more hospitable, meeting us at the airport for the short drive back to the house which was fully accommodating for our family of four. Our children loved the pool right outside the open kitchen/dining area. We had plenty of space and the house was immaculately clean. Explored the entire island including the Wildlife Preserve, surfing lessons with Barry's Surf School in St. Lawrence Gap, and an exceptionally fun catamaran adventure with Jammin Catamaran Tours. We would highly recommend staying at this property and hope to visit again someday. Thank you David and Leith for all your kind hospitality, recommendations, and a wonderful vacation.

Perfect Villa for your Home Away from Hom

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property overlooking the cliff directly into the ocean. David and Leith were wondering host, picking us up upon arrival. They also ensured we could pick up some groceries from a supermarket close by in Emerald City.

The house have an excellent pool and great deck for relaxing and capturing some of the most amazing views, sunsets and sunrises. Rooms were spacious, airy and very clean. This house provided us the perfect location to celebrate my 50th Birthday. Expect some nice sea breeze and a bit of salt on the deck once n a while as this is the Caribbean. Nothing negative about this "Bliss" of a home. Of course we will make this our yearly escape. A must book if you're planning a family stay in Barabdos or need a private romantic getaway!

Fantastic View!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for 4 weeks in April, and we loved it. The view from the deck is fantastic. We saw sea turtles swimming in the ocean, and two or three times we saw stingrays swim by. The pool on the deck is great. The neighbourhood is nice and we went for walks several times and got some great pictures. You can see the ocean as you walk along the road.

The owner was very helpful and drove us to the house when we arrived and then took us to a grocery store. He was always a phone call away and was very helpful.

We had a rental car for the first two weeks that we were there, so we were able to go out and explore the island. It was a lot of fun. There is a beach that you can walk to, but it is not a beach that you can swim at. It's beautiful though. There is also a grocery store within walking distance - about a 10-15 minute walk.

We all had a great time at this villa and we would like to go back some day. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice but not great

  • 3 of 5

I have visited Barbados many times and have stayed on the West, South and East coasts so am aware of the pro's and con's of each.

The Villa itself is very good, a nice layout, spacious, well equipped and very useable. The deck area is great, with stunning views looking out to sea. The deck really is on the cliff top, with the pool, outdoor table, bbq and sun beds for guest use.

There is parking undercover for 2 cars.

Now the not so positive points:

We stayed during a particularly windy period, and were quite annoyed that we really couldn't use the decking area. The non stop sea spray, gales and salt made it a very uncomfotable area to be. You could not put towels on the sunbeds, you could not read easily and food was blown off plates if you tried to dine outdoors.

Talking of which, the whole house is covered in salt, after 2 days, your clothes, your bedding, your towels are all crusty with salt from the sea air.

The cleanliness of the villa was not up to my standards, whilst I realise keeping a villa clean in these conditions is very hard.

Leith and David have a lounge/computer room that is kept closed to keep the salty air out, but this just means that it becomes very stale and really not a pleasant place to spend time.

Our second issue was the noise in the neighbourhood. Both the properties on the left and right of the villa were having maintenance work done. This meant during the day we could not relax due to hammering and drilling that was non-stop each day. The builder next door even brought his kids along to play (very noisily) in the customers pool! The other noise were the local dogs. There was continual very loud barking from more than 4 dogs that kept us awake late at night and woke me up at around 5am each day. I even commented on this to a local, who said that they have had enough of it too, and that it has happened every day for months. It appears a house close by go to work early in the morning, leave their dogs outside, and the dogs then bark all day long.

Many guests have commented on the owners and whilst we found David very helpful on arrival, we then didn't hear anything further from them, not even on departure or a follow up once arriving home.....

So in summary, a great villa with superb views. Very remote. It should be quiet but isn't and it should be relaxing but isn't, especially when it is windy.....

Owner's Response: Hello James, Thank you for staying at our villa and taking the time to write a review. The feedback that we get from our valued guests, like you, enables us to target problem areas and consistently provide our trademark superior service. We are disappointed that the cleanliness was not to your satisfaction. We have an excellent cleaning staff that keeps the villa impeccable. However, we do apologize for the oversight and have brought it to their attention. We have implemented a check system which should eliminate any recurrence. I'm so sorry to hear that the high winds affected your enjoyment of the deck which is one of the high points of previous guests. Our weathermen indicate that the uncharacteristic high winds and cooler temperatures were a spinoff of the polar vortex experienced by northern countries. Our neighbors have thankfully completed their construction so we are pleased to say no more hammering. We will also have to remind guests to avail themselves of the AC in the lounge or at least to open the windows and doors when they are using that room. We normally call our guests the day after they arrive but many times, as in your case, we miss them because, understandably, they are out enjoying the island. As we normally see them or speak to them on departure when we make arrangements for the keys, take them to the airport and thank them for staying, we tend not to write them when they return home. Thank you for this excellent suggestion. We plan to implement a follow up call or email. James, if you have any further questions, comments or suggestions I'd be happy to hear them. We take great pride in the quality of our service and appreciate any assistance in improving. Please feel free to discuss with me at leithd@hotmail.com or at (246)624-9134 Thank you so much.

Unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just enjoyed our 1 year anniversary and we cannot stop talking about this place! Everything about it was absolutely incredible for our honeymoon.

The owners are top notch. Our flight arrived at 11:00 PM and we had about a 20 or 30 minute delay with customs. When we finally exited the airport, the owners were patiently waiting with warm smiles on the faces. They drove us to a store to pick up some groceries and then on to the Villa. They gave us a cell phone to use, showed us who to contact for a rental car, and so many more helpful things. They truly are awesome people!

The Villa is exactly as described, right on the cliff edge and it is stunning! The pool is great and it was an incredibly peaceful place to be. There's a house phone that you can use free of charge to call anyone, even in different countries. They have a TV with cable and movies, air conditioning, several bedrooms, awesome bathrooms, and we really enjoyed lounging on the deck listening to the ocean.

We really liked being on the East side of the island away from a lot of the resorts and congestion. The island is big enough to have a lot of things to do but also small enough to get around quickly.

We will definitely be planning another trip to Barbados and this is where we want to come back to stay. Again, the owners are incredible. Highly recommend this Villa!
