A hairdryer is there for guests use.

There is a new (fitted July 2015) large fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need for your stay. Gas stove and appliances. The kitchen leads out to the stunning patio area which has been hand made with local Green Heart wood. Here you can dine al fresco and chill out at the very large dining table with 6 chairs. This dining area is under cover.

There is also a Weber BBQ (charcoal) for you to use.

There is a breakfast bar between the lounge and kitchen with 2 comfortable high stools.

The lounge offers class and comfort with two separate sitting areas and flat screen TV with UK TV Cable connection. There are two comfortable sofas.

Ga Ga's is just a short 3 minute walk from the beautiful beach at Crystal Cove where you can relax on the stunning beach and swim in the calm Caribbean sea. You may even see a turtle or two!

Children of all ages are very welcome. The house is a safe environment for them.

We have a large travel cot at the house for your use.

Ga Ga's is on one level and would suit people who have mobility problems although doors and gates are not wide enough for a wheel chair.

Why Lesley Anne chose Barbados

We have been holidaying in Barbados since 2001 and finally found our perfect little home in the perfect position!

A frequently asked question is why we have named this house 'Ga Ga's'.? My granddaughter calls me Ga Ga instead of Grandma and strangely enough she was born in South Africa and Ga Ga is Zulu for Grandma which none of us knew at the time!

What makes this house unique

Ga Ga's is situated in Fitts Village where you will feel immersed in Barbados rather than being just 'another tourist'.

If you are looking for the real Barbados feel ... then look no further!

Ga Ga's was Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything you could need for your trip. The property is well maintained and clean. The décor was very Caribbean and reminds you that you are on an island. The property owner (Lesley) should be on the tourism board for Barbados. She was very responsive to emails and provided us with so much information before our trip that we had to do very little research on our own. The information was spot on. The house manager (Tania) was also fantastic. We stayed predominately on the West Coast but did hit the South Coast as well. Based on the visitors and locals we spoke to, the East Coast is a must see. Each coast has something different to offer. The locals could not have been nicer. My family and I felt very safe. The atmosphere of the island is very laid back and just what you need for a stress free vacation. The only thing I would caution you on is the price of food on the island. Since most stuff is imported, it can get pricey. However, we found plenty of local options that are much more reasonable. I highly recommend Ga Ga's. The home is in a great location on the West Coast minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches you will see.

I supply a comprehensive information pack for all guests to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their holiday on this beautiful island. I also supply information via email about the house, the local area, places to visit and recommended restaurants and bars. I am also happy to arrange car hire for guests with a reputable family car hire company MAH rentals who give very reasonable rates. GaGa's has a 'special' feel to it and everyone loves staying there I hope to see you again in the near future.

Beautiful house, very well equipped, even better than the photos & description show.

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideal for 2 couples - bright spacious double bedrooms each with en-suite bathroom, large well-equipped kitchen, and attractive living area, all set in its own private garden. TV, wi-fi, air-con in the bedrooms, the covered outdoor dining area was lovely. All the fittings and furnishings are good quality and carefully thought through, very comfortable and colourful. Even an out-house with washing machine and dryer. Outdoor shower to wash the sand off when you come back from the beach. Lesley was very helpful prior to our stay and arranged for a hire car, and gave us directions to the house and lots of useful local information. We got a lovely welcome from Tania who was very helpful. It is walking distance to beautiful beaches and a short drive to Holetown. It is a great base for holidaying in Barbados. We loved it and would highly recommend it.

A beautiful island escape

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as described. The garden is lovely and the house is a perfect. Lovely breezes with the windows open and enjoyed all the birds, even had a nest on the deck with babies. Only a 2 minute walk to a beautiful beach.

Wonderful Villa-Great Location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location just a short walk to the beach. The villa was very comfortable with A/C in the bedrooms and a great breeze in the living areas. The owner was an absolute pleasure to book through and she was able to supply us with great tips and ideas for our 10 day stay. The laundry facilities were handy for our stay. Many small things made this the perfect villa for us, clean, nice decor, beautiful gardens, deck, beach chairs, beach towels, cable tv, internet, a local contact, the outdoor shower, and a few cold drinks upon arrival. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Tania, the local contact, steered us to many nice restaurants and was able to give us insight as to some different attractions and beaches only the "locals" know.

Thank you again to our host LB---

Ga Ga's delivered exactly as promised.

  • 5 of 5

Such a positive and easy experience - from booking the rental to arrival and then departure. Lesley has a lovely and comfortable home with everything anyone might need for a week. Fitt's Village is in the perfect location to explore the island. We rented a car for 2 days to explore the island. It's a nice long walk along various beaches to Holetown and a fun bus ride to Bridgetown. Payne's Bay beach is excellent for swimming, snorkelling, a bite to eat and chair and umbrella rentals. We had a fun night and good local meal at Wendy's, the local sports bar. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at Ga Ga's again.

Car: not necessary

Ga Ga's is situated in friendly Fitts Village on the fabulous West coast. The house is nestled in a very quiet cul de sac just behind the coastal beach road where you can experience local friendly village life. Although a car is not necessary as local buses to all parts of the island are easily accessible you may find a car useful to see more of beautiful Barbados.

Jordans supermarket is with a 10-15 minute walk or a short 2 minute drive. Il Tempio restaurant is opposite Jordans supermarket. Bus stops are situated directly at the bottom of our street on the main beach road where you can easily hop on a bus and be in Bridgetown within 15 minutes and Holetown in 5 minutes.

Wendy's Bar is within a 5 minute walk.

Paynes Bay is a short ride away where you will find a small fish market. Your fresh fish for the BBQ can be bought from here.

There is a petrol garage with a large grocery shop open all hours, inside you will find an ATM.

Also in Paynes Bay you will find another beautiful wide beach and a number of good restaurants. Daphnes, Scarlets, The Roti Hut and Mr Vics are all in this lovely area not far from Ga Ga's.

Holetown is just a short 7 minute drive away where you can enjoy tax free shopping or browse in the local Chattel Village shops as well as stocking up at the large supermarket there. Holetown has a large selection of excellent restaurants and bars at all price levels and opportunities to experience beach side dining. Banks and ATM machines can also be found in Holetown. The world renowned 'The Cliff' restaurant is within walking distance of the house and you also have Il Tempio Italian restaurant and Wendys local bar.

Crystal Cove beach is within an easy 3 minute walk away from Ga Ga's where you will find soft white sand and calm seas. Jet skiing and boat trips can also be taken from the beach here to see the famous sea turtles.
