Definitely the 'Sweet Life'

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described. Every possible item you want in a home is available. The large washing machine and tumble dryer was fantastic to have. The garden is beautiful and well kept. It was lovely to sit outside for breakfast. The beds are comfortable, huge wardrobes, plenty hot water, the list of amenities is endless. The kitchen has every possible item and more you need, so you can save money on eating out.

Randal who looks after the house was available at any time, and he rang to check my family and I was ok. He was very helpful, and efficiently resolved a minor problem with the supply of hot water very quickly. He was lovely.

Check out the Country house Cafe at the top of Dayrells Court, absolutely delicious breakfast and lunch. Or try Shakers Restaurant, turn right at top of Dayrells Court, then 2nd left. To be honest the house is in such an ideal location that you are spoilt for choice for restaurants. The beach no more than 5-10 minutes walk, bank nearby with ATM, and bus stops in both direction nearby. Staying at Sweet Life made the holiday perfect.

Lastly the owner, Doris, was a pleasure to do business with. She was so generous and kind to my family and ever so helpful. I want to thank her wholeheartedly for making our trip very enjoyable.

Our third visit to Sweetlife and can't wait until our next one ! Everything you could possibly need, home from home.I can only endorse everything said in the other reviews. Doris is so helpful , our favourite holiday place ! There's nothing nicer than relaxing on the patio in the evening with a beer and listening to the whistleing frogs ! Thank you Doris .

Everything's Wonderful and More!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! Doris goes out of her way to make you feel like it is truly your home away from home! The kitchen is very well equipped and there are more than enough sheets and towels. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The maintenance people are attentive and keep the place looking spectacular. We loved the clothesline and being able to open doors and windows to let the breeze pass through. We kept the bars closed, but in no way did we feel unsafe. we walked to Accra Beach every day. This home is in the perfect location with a few moments walk to the beach, stores and taxi stand. Also the bus is easy to access and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance. We hope to return! Thank you so very much Doris, for sharing your beautiful home with us! ~ Rosemary and Norm Wall

Summer in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

'Sweet Life was well located for our holiday needs a real treasure. We stayed for 4 and a half weeks and it was a real home away from home. Ideally located for transport, we traveled the whole island by bus, and to have bus stops so near was convenient. Also well located for eating out with a very good variety of places, plus Chili Moo's- great ice cream . The beach was within a five minute walk, depending on how fast you walked. The kitchen was well supplied with those extra convenient things you expect to have in your own kitchen. Great location, great house a real gem.

Absolutely Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely awesome. Our stay bhere was wonderful Everything was available to us and we appreciated the new upgrade to the home as well. It is literally close to everything just a walk away. The neighbourhood is quiet and friendly and very safe. The beach and stores are so close and the Scotiabank is just down the street. You feel good knowing you can walk outside night or day and be familiar with the area not worried about being out there on your own. Doris, you are such a wonderful hostess thank you for being so kind and accomodating and opening up your home to us. We absolutely loved it. We had access to virtually everything we needed in the house i.e. clean linen, washing machine, vaccum, kitchen utensils a variety of pots and pans, a/c and ceiling fans, the house was not without. This is "our house" as we affectionately referred to it. We miss it already and cannot wait to go back. We are planning right now as this is written. We definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Barbados this is the place...although we want to keep this secret haven to ourselves lol.
