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!

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.
