This January, I left Canada for a reason: it was unbelievably cold (-35C). Those 15 days in Barbados were a welcome break for me and renting Sweet Paw Paw made it even better as I enjoyed its convenience & comfort.

I have known the owner, Paul, for over 25 years now and he knows I say things as they are: the Fanning's house is really a perfect place for a tropical vacation. This was my second stay in SPP and my 4th trip to Bim and I am already thinking about my next trip back.

The staff is very friendly: Christopher the gardener, Ashley the agent and Diana the housekeeper are simply just great people.

The house is very well located, minutes away from beaches (Maxwell, Entreprise, Accra, etc), and close to Ostins, St. Lawrence Gap and Bridgetown. The Friday Night Fish Fry, the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, Earthworks Pottery, Crane Beach, the various lighthouses and Andromeda Gardens are amongst the places one must see.

A really really great stay!

Top accomodation!

I have to say that this was one of the best holidays I have ever had!! This is the perfect place to enjoy Barbados whilst feeling at home! It was so lovely to relax and recuperate in a perfect relaxing setting whilst enjoying all of the local traditions without feeling like a total tourist. The locals were so friendly and helpful! I have to thank the owners for an exceptional time & they did their utmost to ensure the best vacation!

Thank you so much for sharing your home, Mr. & Mrs. Fanning!
Best wishes,
Corina

Bliss

  • 5 of 5
What can I say that hasn't been said already ???

For me and my large family who stayed for 5 weeks, it was bliss. Sweet Paw Paw is an absolutely amazing house ..... it offered every amenity anyone could want in a holiday home. Clean, airy, well maintained, tastefully decorated and well located.

The house is also very spacious, which was just as well as it rained for a lot of the holiday but we didn't feel 'cooped up'. The Mac, particularly Skype, the hifi, the tv and the various games and books, thankfully kept us all occupied.

The description and pictures are accurate but modestly understated. The location totally suited our needs as the beach, the Gap and Oistins were all nearby, meaning that even the taxi fares (when necessary) were very reasonable. The bus stops are also within easy reach.

Friends and relatives who visited us, were also very impressed with the property and how easy it was to find.

As for food, I would definately recommend the souse from the nearby Goldan Sands Hotel. KFC offers a delivery service which was very convenient and the variety of dishes offered in Oistins catered for every taste.

The main issues we had was dealing with the mosquitoes and the heat at night due to having to close the house up at night. The house would definately benefit from nets on at least the upstairs windows. The one other thing that was definately missed was a pool...... but then I suppose you cant always have it all!

The owner Paul was very helpful, extremely patient, answered my many questions beforehand and provided all the information I needed.

Many thanks to Ashley (particularly from my daughters) who was very helpful and friendly and often went above and beyond the call of duty offering a very entertaining out of hours service lol !! I am also grateful to her lovely dad (Trevor, if I remember correctly??) for all of his help.

Thanks to Eugenie who provided invaluable housekeeping support and also an ear to my mother who was unfortunately housebound for most of the holiday.

Thanks also to Christopher for all his support in our fight against the mosquitoes during his weekly visits. Although, I am still waiting for a mango !!

All in all it was a holiday to remember and we are all extremely grateful to all of you for allowing us the privilege of staying in Sweet Paw Paw.

the perfect vacation house

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Sweet Paw Paw for 7 nights. We had an great time, the house is located in an excellent location between the gap and Oistins. There can be a few mosquitoes, but if you plan ahead and get some repellent coils they will stay away. The yard is amazing to spend time just chilling, lounging and playing cricket. The enclosed patio is truly the gem of the house. The house has every amenity a person could ask for on a vacation.

If you are used to air conditioning and want the temp to be 20 deg C constantly, stay away, in fact why come to Barbados? Lack of air conditioning is offset by the breeze and the fans, making it quite comfortable.

The only issues we faced were the amount of time we spent trying to find the place on the first day and the rental manager was not there to let us in even though we were delayed by an hour and half.

Overall, I think we will be back soon, we missed on getting puddin and souse this time, so have to be back just for that!

Perfect House, Would Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5
I would not hesitate to recommend this house for anyone looking for accommodation in Barbados. The details on the listing are very accurate in terms of the facilities, but the pictures do not do the house justice at all! It is far more beautiful and much bigger than it looks in the pictures.

The house is bright and airy with all the facilities that you could want and extremely comfortable. I was particular impressed with the patio area. It is a great area for entertaining, as you are sheltered from the elements if the weather is bad, but open enough for you to feel as if you are actually outside. It was like a home away from home.

For those that want to stay in touch, there is an iMac, broadband access and Skype facilities for your use. The owner was most helpful in providing details of these facilities before I left, so I knew how to get up and running on the iMac without any hassle on arrival.

The house is on a quiet side-road, just off of the main road where the bus stop into Bridgetown is located. The bus stop is a couple of minutes walk away. There are beaches are just a 5 minute walk away from the house. There is a supermarket in nearby Oistins, plus smaller convenience stores within a 5 minute walk. St Lawrence Gap is about a 10/15 minute stroll away, where there are plenty of restaurants and bars, or just a couple of minutes on the bus.

The house is very well-maintained and clean throughout. A cleaner comes once a week, although more often can be arranged. A gardener also comes once a week too. Both are very pleasant and helpful. Many thanks to the lady that met us at the house on arrival and departure, for a friendly welcome and some useful tips.

The owner provided excellent customer service both before and after the booking, being able to answer any questions that I put forward and keep me informed all the way through the process.

I can't speak highly enough of the property. I will never stay in a hotel again! In fact, I am looking forward to a further stay in the house very soon. Many thanks to the owner for the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful house. See you again soon!

My friend and I visited Barbados in February 2010 and stayed at Sweet Paw Paw for 10 nights! The house was very large for the 2 of us, but a perfect holiday location as it is situated in the middle of Oistins and St Lawrence Gap! You can walk to both of these places within 30 mins, or there are many (mad) buses coming along the main road which is a couple of mins stroll from the house.

As for the beach, we mainly chilled out on Butterfly Beach Hotel's Beach, which is approx. 10 mins walk from the house.

Sweet Paw Paw is as the owner describes online, and is very clean and equipped with all that you need, i.e. kitchen appliances, BBQ, towels, sheets etc. The cleaner visits once a week, and if you require further services from her these are chargeable. It also has a fully working MAC with internet access, headphones, built in MIC for Skype purposes, which was essential for me for touching base back home every day.

The only negative comment I would make is that the house could really do with some sort of air con; by night the rooms were very hot! More so for me as I do not like to sleep with the windows open as will get eaten alive! If you are OK with the windows being open, you will receive a lovely breeze throughout! The windows being open by day is fine altho we were visited by very large cockroaches (but then I think those things will always find their way in somehow)! Lol

All in all I had the most amazing time in Barbados, and am working to get back out there in July 2010 for Crop Over!

Sweet Paw Paw is located less than 10 minutes walk from Maxwell Beach, between Oistins and St. Lawrence Gap on Barbados South Coast. It is less than 30 minutes walk (or a very short drive) to the heart of the St. Lawrence Gap bars, restaurants and clubs. Close enough to be convenient but far enough to not hear the music if you don't want to.

Oistins with it's famous Friday night fish fry and party is 5 minutes drive along the Maxwell Main Road. Super Centre Supermarket, gas stations and ATMs are also available here.

The airport is also convenient, less than 20 minutes drive away.

Through the kitchen door is the rear patio including a barbecue, dining area and wet bar. Unfortunately, you must stock the bar yourself. In addition to the rear patio, the house has 2 upstairs balconies and 2 ground level verandas. The gardens include a mango tree, a guava tree and two young lime trees. Of course, the availability of fruit depends on the season. There is a housekeeper and a gardener, each coming once a week. Additional housekeeping service is available at additional cost. The house is designed to take full effect of the trade winds with louvred windows and awnings so it is not air-conditioned but remains wonderfully cool and breezy year-round.
