SERIENTO- STUNNING BARBADOS TOWN HOUSE NEAR MIAMI BEACH

Enterprise House Rental Photos and Description

Barbados, Enterprise, Christ Church, Miami Beach, Oistins, Caribbean

What our previous guests think

We surveyed some of our previous guests (187 respondents) to find out why they enjoyed staying at Seriento so much. Here is the list of top 5 reasons stated by our guests:

1. Location of Seriento on the island

'The house was close enough to Miami beach yet not too close to restrict our privacy. The walk down to the beach has the best scenic view in Barbados'.

2. Travel Packs prior to departure

'We received through the post a pack full of useful information including a very useful packing checklist. It was like we were travelling with a tour operator, exceptionally professional'.

3. Discounted flights

'We thought we had found the best deals on flights but David managed to find us flights cheaper than advertised by BA and Virgin! This saved our family over £200.00 on our holiday'.

4. Car hire quote service

'David saved us so much time and money by getting us 5 car hire quotes for our stay. He then recommended a car hire company based on comments from previous guests. He did not even charge us for this service!

5. Bajan Cookery Experience

'To have a experienced chef come to Seriento and teach us how to cook traditional Bajan dishes was one of the highlights of the holiday! The children loved it and the meal we prepared was delicious. I know know how to cook Bajan style!

We know that you will enjoy staying at our home as much as they did.

David Prescod runs a training company based in Leicester. He delivers digital marketing and ICT accredited courses across the UK.

He has always had a passion for travel and received a scholarship from the Barbados government to study tourism marketing. So much so he has been a guest speaker at the Home Away annual summit for the last 2 years. He also advises other holiday home owners on how to effectively market their properties.

A keen gym goer and father to the delightful Robert, David also has a passion for technology.

David Prescod purchased this house in 2005

In 1957, Ralph Prescod (father to David and Mark) travelled to England form Barbados on a boat called 'Seriento'. He planned to start a career as a nurse in the NHS. He soon decided on a change of career and became a lecturer in motor vehicle mechanics.

It was in England that Ralph met Myrlene (mother to David and Mark) and soon began a family. There were frequent family trips back to Barbados over the years.

The past 2 decades have seen both Ralph and Myrlene pass away. The dream to retire back to Barbados was never fulfilled. Their two sons David and Mark searched the island to find a plot of land to build a home in memory of their parents. This home is 'Seriento'.

1. Location of the property

There are many areas of Barbados which do not have an 'eye to the sea'. This location can claim to have some of the most scenic views on the island. So much so, on the walk down to Miami Beach, you will often see married couples taken their wedding photos there and even musicians filming their videos on the shoreline!

2. Proximity to Oistins

One of the most popular towns in Barbados with year round entertainment and the best food to be found anywhere! The food here not only tastes great but is excellent value for money. Oistins is an unspoilt and traditional Bajan town.

3. Peace and tranquility

Whether it is a relaxing or busy sight seeing trip that you want, Seriento is a perfect base. Nestled in a private gated community of just 6 homes, you can enjoy all of the privacy that you require. Have breakfast on the terrace watching the humming birds play and enjoying the cool easterly breeze.

4. Entertainment for all of the family

Seriento offers all the comforts to make your trip an enjoyable experience. There is plenty to entertain the children including TV, video games and DVD's. A selection of books and board games also keeps the grown ups occupied too.

Beautiful Villa, Beautiful Barbados!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for 2 weeks with two other people in August 2008, and it was the first time I've stayed in Enterprise - as I frequently stay in Maxwell.

Being also the first time I'd rented a villa in Barbados, I was naturally concerened with details being accurately displayed about the property on this website and about handing over large amounts of money to a complete stranger!

But my fears were completely squashed! Not only did the owner take alot of time to make sure my questions were thoroughly answered, but was extremely good at making sure clear and excellent payment methods were offered in order for us to feel safe and be efficient in the transfer of payments!

And even better, there were transfers to and from the airport arranged! On arrival, the property was absolutely beautiful and immaculate! I cannot fault this property one bit in terms of condition, space, contents and making sure the finer details were thought of and in place. As for the location, you cannot pass the opportunity of visiting the secluded Cotton bay Beach (3 min walk) or Miami Beach (8 min walk) and Oistins (10 min walk)!! Everything is within walking distance, and most of all it was safe...

I would advise that although there is a Government bus that passes near the property, it really isn;t worth waiting for it as once you miss it - it's another 1hr wait! Much better to take the beautiful walk down to Oistins and take the ZR vans from the main road..

Overall, as a frequent visitor to Barbados, this is a wonderful property, with an accommodating owner. David, I will definately be here again real soon! Sincerely, the best stay I have had in Barbados so far....and that's saying something!...All you need is a pool now!

Wonderful house on a wonderful island!

  • 5 of 5
It took me a while but I am finally taking the time to write this. It was such a wonderful place to be and no snow! The Seriento is clean and modern, we felt at home almost immediately. Perfect location, close to surfing, Miami beach and Oistins. Couldn't ask for more. We enjoyed it so much we will be back for sure next year! Hopefully we can stay at the Soriento again! Thanks David for the rental of your lovely home it was everything you said it would be.

Great Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely unit over Christmas 2011. The location is great - 10 minutes walk to Enterprise beach and about 15 minutes to Oistens (use the cut through behind the post office - ask the locals by the beach, always helpful!). We discovered Chicken Rita's - close by and delicious. We have been to Barbados many times and are never disappointed. The unit is clean, bright and has a wonderful breeze blowing through if you open the front and back door. I love cooking and was glad the kitchen provided all the tools I needed to prepare fish we bought at the market in Oistens. Sitting outside in the evening and listening to the peepers (chirping frogs) while sipping a rum punch was truly delightful. We would stay again and definitely will be recommending to others when they are heading down. You have a gem there.

Seriento, Massiah Drive, Barbados

  • 5 of 5
Had a fabulous time at Seriento on our first visit to Barbados. Our two kids loved the little luxuries in the house that gave the place a personal home from home touch. The house is clean, spacious, well maintained and only a couple of minutes walk from a secluded beach called Cotton Bay beach where the only visitors we saw during our 2 weeks were a couple of fishermen. The place is also only a 10 minute walk from Miami Beach where the sea is very calm, still and lovely for kids to swim and paddle in. In the town of Oisins there are some fantastic eating places - our favourite was Fred's Bar where we sampled lovely fish dishes. We would certainly recommend Seriento to anyone visiting Barbados.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my husband chose Seriento for our 10 night stay in Barbados and where thrilled with our choice. We had never booked an independent trip before and David was fantastic from start to finish answering every question we had running up to our holiday. He was full of local information and really helpful.

The house was just as on the photos and extremely well equipped with great little extras including ipod doc, wii, dvds and free Wifi.
The house itself was very clean and comfortable like a home from home. It was spacious with a great garden patio where we sat every morning to eat our breakfast.

The house is in a great safe location just set back from the road. It is in walking distance of one of the best beaches on the island (Miami) and Cafe luna a fabulous restaurant looking out to sea. I would however advise hiring a car as there’s so much to see on the island and driving is so easy in Barbados.

A little bit of extra info which you may find useful:

* We found a great little restaurant called Shakers in Rockley-you will need a car to find it as its set back off the main road in a housing area. We ate there two nights on the trot, the food was fabulous (local catch) cheap by Barbados prices and really authentic. Its not polished fine dining, think bright colours, fairy lights sat at the roadside.
* We booked a boat trip through Elegance and it was out of this world, they only take 14 people Max so it felt like we had our own private boat, great food and a great crew!
* Mr Delicious van on Miami beach is great for cheap local lunch when your on the beach-we had many a Roti and flying fish cutter there followed by a delicious rum punch!
* Other restaurants recommended:
Cafe Luna - for great ambience but pretty pricey.
Harlequin - St Lawrence Gap-good fish.
Fish Pot - West coast-best in my opinion.
Oistins fish fry - good food and atmosphere on a friday night.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and want to say a massive thanks to David for providing such a great service!! We will be back.

A Wonderful Caribbean Experience!

  • 5 of 5
Seriento is a lovely, comfortable, clean and well maintained property that suited us perfectly (4 of us). It is well located just 10 mins walk from beautiful Enterprise/Miami beach, just wonderful early in the morning and in the afternoon.
It's just a short drive to Oistins for supermarkets, fantastic fish lunches and dinners, banks etc., and it is well located for access by car or bus to the rest of this beautiful island.
The house is in a quiet cul de sac in a very nice area but not too far from livelier tourist destinations if needed. There is a very good restaurant in a hotel just a few minutes walk away from the house.
The local people were very friendly and welcoming, and helpful if we needed any local information.
The rum punch must be tasted and then enjoyed!
We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely love to go back and would not to hesitate to recommend it to friends. Our thanks to all involved with Seriento for making it such a great holiday.
