Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from our brilliant holiday at El Vista and we would like to say how perfect everything was. My wife really enjoyed the visit from the monkeys on 2 occasions. El Vista was the best Apartment we have stayed in on all our foreign holidays and really hope we can stay again in the future. Many thanks once again.

El Vista, Barbados

  • 5 of 5
The owners Tony & Elma went out of their way to ensure we were fully briefed, not only on their lovely apartment but also on all the best places to visit in Barbados. We were met at the airport on arrival (by Lloyd) and then when we arrived at the apartment, all of our favourite breakfast foods had been left in the fridge (by Rachel) so we were able to have a nice leisurely start on our first day. Great thought had been given to all the little but important things that make such a difference ie hairdryers and GHDs in the bedrooms, plenty of conversion plugs and even a mobile phone so we could make cheap local calls. With lots of John Lewis labels around (bedding, towels, cushions etc) it felt just like home! Watching the sun set over the sea from the patio plunge pool was stunning. We were privileged one evening at a local beachside restaurant to see baby turtles hatching through the sand. The locals are incredibly happy, friendly and enormous fun. El Vista was truly wonderful and we will definitely be returning. Thank you Tony & Elma for everything you did to make our stay so very special. Tom & Jacqui

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommended accommodation exactly what is shows and says in the write up!
Right down from booking/ arriving to leaving amazing hospitality we were met at the airport and taken to our secure beautiful holiday home for a very reasonable price by Lloyd who then picked us up and took us back 2 weeks later!
The house is fully equipped with everything right down to baby facilities ie travel cot/ car seat.
Everything Elma and Tony said they delivered and more!A car is needed to get around the beautiful islands so you get the opportunity to see the amazing places!In our apartment between 10am -1pm you could see the monkeys in the trees which would come up to feed on the plants!

We will be back next year and hopefully many more do THANKYOU vey much x

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We have just arrived back from a magical 10 days in Barbados, We stayed at the El Vista and can not recommend it more highly, from the moment of enquiry to when we arrived everyone was so helpful Elma and Tony kept in touch before we went on our holiday and when we arrived we were met at the airport by the lovely Lloyd a real gentleman then Rachel who is a delight met us at the apartment she had done some shopping for us and got some little extras for our kids, so sweet and kind. The apartment is in a fab location close to Mullins beach and hole town we travelled around the island visiting Crane beach which is not to be missed and also the boat yard at Carlisle bay great for kids or a relaxed evening . Restaurants I would recommend are Jumas in Speightown they come and get you and bring you home free, the fish pot in st lucy food is fab and Zaccious in hole town you can get take away on their eat in menu handy if you've had a long day. El Vista is clean and airy with a nice view the kitchen is well equipped not that we cooked much and it has a washer dryer that's helpful when you have kids. Elma and Tony have thought of the little extras you may need beach mats cool box snorkels etc, the patio are with plunge pool is great to sit and chat over a chilled beer. This was our 7th time on the island 1st self catering and we had the most amazing time, we hope to go back very very soon. Thanks Elma, Tony, Rachel & Lloyd

El Vista

  • 5 of 5
On arrival we were met by Rachel (housekeeper)who gave us a comprehensive tour of the property and its facilities - excellent start. The property owners had arranged transport from the airport, which is essential if you do not know the area! For the remainder of the holiday we had a hire car, which again I would recommend. At the end of the holiday we dropped the car off at the airport, a "hassle-free" process. As far as El Vista itself is concerned, this is a first class property. It is well-maintained and all the equipment you require is on hand. A most comfortable bed. I have to say we spent the vast majority of our time either eating al fresco on the patio, or in nearby Holetown - so although there is a TV provided, I never felt the need to turn it on! The bathroom is modern, clean and roomy with a good shower. The apartment block consists of 4 units, but the soundproofing was so good we did not hear our neighbours. The only intrusion we experienced was a troop of monkeys visiting at breakfast time - great fun! The plunge pool was lovely to cool off in and was serviced regularly. Maid service again was first class and friendly. Owners provided a mobile phone in case we needed to contact Rachel, but we never had the need to - everything ran most smoothly. Wi-fi was a bonus with great reception. The nearest beach is just down a hill, bit of a climb back up, but not a problem. Beach itself was gorgeous! We had rain just about everyday (short showers) but this did not cause a problem, and is typical tropics weather. Just down the hill, near the beach was a local bar which served food on Thursday - Saturday evenings. Jefferson the owner is a very friendly guy, and if you want the "local flavour" this is the place to go - and it's in walking distance! The owner's website gives a truthful and accurate description of the property. No problem if you've got little one's (we didn't) - they even provide a car seat! All in all a superb place to stay - go on - enjoy!!

We arrived to be greeted by Rachel who gave us all the information required most helpful , After a good nights sleep wonderful beds we went onto the patio to be stunned by the wonderful view , The apt is all it states to be with everything you need to make it a great place to stay with Rachel on the end of a phone if needed which we did a couple of times. I must state however that a car is a must with the stated 5 min walk to the beach a tad optimistic though we did not put this to the test the walk back would be a tough walk up a steep road , so to summarize our review would we want to book El-vista again a most definite yes , And thankyou to Elma for all your help beforehand :)

Tony & Elma (the owners) were very patient in answering all my questions and helping me with the booking. My partner and i had a wonderful stay.
