My husband and I, together with my two brothers and their wives, stayed at a property call Mangoes. It was awesome. It was a three bedroom, three bath villa which was very clean and spacious. The care- taker, Lucille was very friendly and kept the place very clean. She came twice a week and clean the entire villa. She changed the beds, put fresh towels in the bathrooms and fresh kitchen towel . The Villa location is awesome. Only two minutes walk from the beach and pool. The yard is very large with beautiful flowers. Every day two monkeys come to the windows to say hi to us. It was only a 5 minutes walk to the supermarket called Massey, and to the restaurants and shopping mall. The buses were also a two minutes walk and came frequently. We can't wait to go there again. Everything was just perfect. We love everything about that place. The owner was also very helpful. She kept in touch with me and answer all my questions. She was perfect in all her informations and guidance pertaining to the property and neighborhood. Thanks Cath. You're the best.
My family of 7...six adults and a 2 year old, had the privilege to stay T Gibbs Glade the first week of June. Prior to our arrival Maria, the owner, was always in touch with us to answer any questions we had. I don’t think she ever sleeps! Lol. Maria gave us helpful information regarding tours to take and car rentals to use. We took her advise and she was spot on with her recommendations. Donald...the taxi driver was the most pleasant and punctual driver you can imagine. Every time he drove us somewhere he’d bring us a bag of fresh mangos from his trees. It was mango season.
Natalie, our house keeper, was amazing. She was cheerful, helpful, and kept us very organized. We discovered she was going to culinary school so we hired her one night to cook us a real Bajan feast. It was the most delicious and incredible dinner we had while in Barbados. We were so honored that she was able to cook for my husbands birthday dinner! It was a birthday dinner we will never forget.
Tonya, the manager, was a delight. Anything we needed she made sure we got. She also was a wealth of information for us and a contact if we needed anything while in Barbados.
So now the property...words or pictures can’t describe the beauty of Gibbs Glade. All I can say is I we all felt comfortable and at home. Wish it was “our beach house”. It was decorated very nicely and fully supplied with everything and anything that you could want. We ate every meal outside. There was always shade In The dining area and the “conversational “ area.
All the bedrooms had their own bathrooms and they were all fully stocked with soap and toilet paper. Very clean...only one bathroom had a tub. Beds were very comfortable for us...slept very well!
The pool area was beautiful. We spent a lot of family time sitting around the pool or floating. It was just so relaxing. You didn’t want to leave the house!
Gibbs Glade is less then a 5 minute walk to the beach. The beach is very quiet...we were the on,y ones there. We often walked to Mullins beach club...(tags provided by Maria) to watch the sunset and have a cocktail. When you first enter the water at both beaches it is a little rocky and if you have tender feet I would advise water shoes. The water was so beautiful and crystal clear. No seaweed. Once you got beyond the rocks the sand under your feet was like velvet.
Our recommendations to see/do would be definitely Good Times Catamaran tour which you get
