Turtles Paynes Bay.... The Only Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5
"Fabulous" best describes our stay at Turtles. Where do we start? Well, the property was exactly as stated with all appliances, TV, Fridge, Cable, Wi Fi etc. working perfectly. Inside, the bedrooms, kitchen and living room are all well presented with a homely, Caribbean feel. . The balcony was our favorite spot where we ate breakfast and hung out at nights watching the local Bajans "liming". Turtles is well maintained and the property manager (Dave) was there whenever we needed him.

As for Paynes Bay, you are seven minutes walk from glorious beaches as well as the local buses that take you into Bridgetown or wherever you want to go. We highly recommend the yellow "Reggae Buses" as you will get a slice of "Bajan living". "Jordans" supermarket is about a 7 minute bus ride and has everything you will need. Throughout our stay, we found the locals to be courteous and very helpful with directions and advice. At all times, day and night, we felt safe and you will find the locals living around Turtles to be warm and friendly. A friendly hi will get you a long way there.

With regards to tourist attractions, we recommend "Mullins Bay Beach Bar" in St Peters on Highway 1, Oistins Fish Fry and of course "The Jolly Roger". For getting around, we rented a car which gave us a lot of freedom but we left it at home when we were going into Bridgetown. Taking the bus was only BDS$2 a ride and saves you trying to find parking downtown.. We also ate at "Sharkeys" which a short walk from the house and if you want to take a walk on the wild side, try buying food from the food vendors recommended by Steve/Gill or the locals.. it's all very, very good.

If you are hiring a car, we used Drive-A-Matic who were great and very professional. Now for "Sticker Shock", gas is BDS$14.50/gallon or US$7.25 a gallon. yikes!!!!!. Still well worth it.

In summary, We would highly recommend Turtles and will be staying there again. Why anyone would want to stay in a cramped hotel room when they could roam around a beautiful home with all the creature comforts is beyond us.. Turtles offers excellent value for and you will find dealing with Steve & Gill to be a joy.

Steve/Gill, thank you for making our stay at Turtles a wonderful experience. It was everything that was advertised and then some... See you in 2016

Felt right at home here in Barbados

  • 5 of 5
This home is so nice, I recommend this place to anyone visiting Barbados. It is truly unique, in the middle of a typical Bajan neighbourhood with all the lovely sounds and smells of Barbados. I felt perfectly safe, as I always do in Barbados, but this home is quite secure just in case anyone is nervous about those things. Everyone we came across in the neighbourhood was friendly and greeted us, as I would have expected from Barbadians - friendly but discreet.
The villa is beautifully decorated with all sorts of thoughtful touches, we felt like we were in our own home, nothing was missing. It is also so nice to have the 2 bathrooms, 1 for each bedroom, a real advantage that other places can't offer. You can open all the doors and windows if you like, the place is breezy and well equipped with fans. We rarely used the air conditioners in the bedrooms, even though the weather was hot and dry during our stay, preferring to enjoy the Bajan breeze. I have been to Barbados many times, stayed in different types of places, but I think this place had just about everything. We enjoyed the patio the most, it is the best room of the house. It's spacious and breezy and private and totally relaxing.
The beach is just a short walk from the house and on the way back, we usually stopped at the gas station for snacks or drinks or small grocery items. It was really convenient. Marshall's bar is not too far where you can get delicious home cooked meals for a reasonable price and maybe watch a cricket match across the road. You are close to everything on the West Coast. Payne's bay is a beautiful area and the beach is gorgeous, you can walk along it for quite a distance.
I can't wait to return, this is the perfect place to wind down and immerse yourself in Barbados.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic villa in a typically Bajan setting. The neighbours were very friendly and welcoming. The villa is in a short walk away from one of the nicest beaches on the Island, Payne’s Bay, Where you can swim with Turtle’s and enjoy the white sandy beach and crystal waters of the sea. The villa was very well equipped, from beach towels, chairs and cool boxes for the outdoors, to Wi fi, Television, and laundry equipment on the inside. With all the conveniences of modern life to enjoy, Turtle’s Villa was a home from home.
The villa is conveniently located for some of the best beaches, shopping and restaurants.
The bus service is cheap and reliable. A car is not essential but enables you to see more of the Island at your leisure.
We will be returning in the very near future as this was the best holiday we have ever had.

Spacious, comfortable home with super owner-hosts.

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival, we immediately felt that this was a home not a money-generating rental. From our first contact, Steve and Gill were so welcoming and helpful, we felt like we were staying in the home of friends who very much wanted us to enjoy our stay. Everything was as described in the listings with an added bonus of being located in a friendly Bajan residential neighbourhood. It IS only 5 minutes to wonderful beaches and a great variety of excellent restaurants. We enjoyed our stay immensely and wish our hosts the very best.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5
The villa was just as described, and nice and clean, with everything there you could possibly need right down to beach chairs and umbrellas! Steve & Gill were a pleasure to deal with and managers Dave & Anita were lovely and nice to know they were there on the island. I loved the area and swimming with the turtles, and would happily recommend this villa to anyone!

A very nice and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just come back from Turtles Villas, where we spent 2 beautiful weeks with some friends. We were 6 (4 adults and 2 children) and the house was just perfect: big, clean, well-maintained and very very close to one of the BEST beaches in Barbados! Paynes Bay beach is just gorgeous, and we managed to see the turtles nearly every day. It's not even necessary to take a boat, you can just swim there straight from the beach!
We rented a car just for a couple of days (we visited Harrison's Caves and the Barbados Wildlife Resort, which are two beautiful attractios if you have children. They loved the turtles and the little monkeys in the Reserse. ) Then, we usually took the buses, 'cause the bus service is really good and we didn't have any trouble getting around the island by bus. It was so funny and everybody was nice and friendly to us.
We had a really fantastic holiday and I would definitely recommend this property to everybody. :-)
