Beautiful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 30, 2012
  • Stayed: Apr 2012
Arrived on 23 April 2012, quite late in the day to a lovely welcome from Sherry the housekeeper.

The house was even better than the pictures, it really is beautiful, spacious and welcoming. Everywhere is clean and comfortable. Information and contacts are available for everything you could want or need, much thought has gone into making the stay a comfortable and happy experience.

There is even the daily entertainment of the monkeys passing through the other side of the fence.

Just a few minutes walk to the main shops and beach area via a short cut at back of the house.

Every one you meet is friendly, the famous Bajan welcome is found everywhere.

Neighbours are friendly and quiet, even when you meet them out on the town during the evening, checking you are ok and having a good time.

We hired a car from Stoats the company recommended by Mary, the service was very good, car arrived on time and was clean and reliable, we also hired a Sat Nav and have to say this was well worth the money, we went all over the island, including beautiful Bottom Bay which is the opposite side of the island and well worth a visit without getting lost once thanks to the sat nav, no having to constantly check the map or turn round because of missing a turning!

Holetown is lovely and has everything you could wish for; supermarket (Waitrose no less), various gift and clothes shops and a Cave Shepherd, duty free shop.

A trip to St Lucy is worth the drive, views are beautiful and there are a few gift shops selling local craft items and paintings.

Harrison's cave is also worth going to, may be a bit difficult to find without the use of Sat Nav, signs in Barbados are sometimes few and far between, however you should never be afraid to ask, people are only too happy to help.

As for eating, we didn't have a bad meal anywhere, Just Grilling is great for lunch as is Surfside at anytime for a snack. Zaccios' food is lovely morning, noon and night. The service at all is good and very friendly.

Overall I can only say that this was my first holiday for 4 years, looking at the website for this house in those 4 years spent as a carer was all that kept me going some days, it would have been easy to build it into something wonderful in my mind only for reality to let me down when I was eventually able to go. It was not the case, everything I had pictured and imagined in those 4 years was surpassed, it was wonderful. Excellent value. Highly recommended.
Owner's Response: The first time for us to arrive in Barbados and meet our guests!! Really enjoyed meeting you both and chillin' out on the balcony with the bubbly!!

Delighted you enjoyed our home and the wonderful island of Barbados

Another stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 7, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
Tears..... Writing a review means we are back from paradise. We spent another phantastic 4 weeks at Halcyon Dayz (partly together with our son and his family who stayed for 6 weeks). This was our second holiday at Halcyon Dayz - and knowing to which gorgeous place we would return was a big part of our anticipation. This wonderful house makes an ideal holiday destination more than perfect. We love it so much. The plants grew so well and make the garden an oasis. Each detail in the house and garden reflects the loving care of the owners.
Big thanks to Sherry who maintains the house so well and keeps it very clean. She was always a high much valued help and had some good tips how to avoid moscitos etc..
We all had such a wonderful time there and it was so touching to see the development little Julian made within these weeks. He seemed to absorb all the various impressions: lots of space, sun, rich vegetation, birds, monkeys and - of course - the people. The Bajans are really great. Always with a smile and very helpful.

This time we did several walking tours and discovered some wonderful places. We can really recommend this, emphasising once more the security on the island. We never felt unsafe and always enjoyed walking around, meeting locals
and get some tips from them.

Mary and David, in the name of the whole family we deeply thank you for sharing the house. We are looking forward to 2014!
Owner's Response: We are always delighted to share our home, people like these make our whole Bajan experience so worthwhile.

Fabulous 4 Weeks

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2012
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
It's three weeks since we returned home after spending 4 enjoyable weeks in Halcyon Heights. We’ve re-booked for 5 weeks next year.

We echo all the positive comments made by previous reviewers.  The website description describes the villa perfectly.

The location is very peaceful and there is plenty of wildlife - fireflys, bats, geckos, humming birds, egrets heading off in the mornings to various parts of the Island and not forgetting the troop of monkeys.

We have been visiting Barbados on many occasions since 1991 and this was one of our best holidays. It was lovely to have our family stay with us for two weeks. The villa is so spacious and comfortable that accommodating 5 adults and two infants under 4 years was no problem.

We hired a car which is useful if you wish to tour the island, however this is not essential as the local taxis are reasonable and there is a 6/7 minute shortcut walk into Holetown.

Looking forward to next year when we can chill out again in Holetown and Halcyon Heights.
Owner's Response: We are so delighted you enjoyed your holiday in wonderful Barbados. Our home there is our pride and joy - we love to share it. Our family and friends are frequently there and we make sure, along with our housekeeper Sherry that the house is well looked after and cared for.

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 21, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2011
Had another wonderful stay at Halcyon Dayz (stayed in March 2010), the place just keeps getting better and harder to leave. Was fortunate to stay for 30 days, including Xmas and New Year 2011, with my sister coming out on the 26th December and her two kids, as usual Mary and David were very helpful and friendly throughout the booking process.

Holetown did not disappoint with plenty to see and do over the xmas period and with the new Lime Grove centre opened, there was plenty of shopping to be had if you have the money. Spent quite a bit of time at Surfside bar where you can hire beach beds and the watersports are fabulous, although the beach boys do tend to hassle you a bit a first, but once you get talking to them they can be really helpful and friendly.

The monkeys at the villa are as always a delight to watch, keeping us entertained throughout our stay, together with the lizards Did not hire a car this time, and although the road leading up back to the house is quite steep, its a good way to get a tan and keep fit and its only 10 minutes walk to Holetown. Hired taxis on an evening and for sightseeing, which are plenty and good value compared to hiring a car. Sherry the housekeeper is an absolute delight, she cannot do enough for you and keeps the place spotless. Really envy Mary and David to have such a wonderful place. Will certainly be going back, hopefully some time soon.
Owner's Response: Well it certainly gives David and myself great pleasure to know you enjoy our home and of course the wonderful island and its people of Barbados.

Thank you for keeping our home so well looked after, you and your family are welcome back anytime.
