Conveniently nestled in the heart of a quiet neighborhood, Legacy is a fast 5-7 minute walk to Turtle/Casuarina Beach. Or, take a leisurely 15 minute stroll to lively St. Lawrence Gap for water sports fun, beach-side restaurants, quaint shopping, a variety of clubs and bars.
I am what islander's call a 'Yankee Bajan', a third generation African American of Bajan descent living in the Southeast United States where I am a professional dancer and teaching artist.
Aya purchased this house in 2007
Having a family home in Barbados was a dream of ours for many years and in 2006, we were blessed with an opportunity to purchase this house in the same neighborhood as my grandmother's childhood best friend. The mural on the wall in the living room was done by a local artist and pays tribute to family members whose lives modeled love for family, hard work, commitment to following a dream, and the importance of acknowledging our Bajan roots.
Legacy Villa is literally a 7 minute walk from Turtle Beach where I would go swimming as a kid during my summer visits to the island. Our gap is only a short distance away on the bus route to one of my all time favorite spots in Barbados: Oistins Friday Night Fish Fry!
First and foremost. Thank you for accommodating us through the process of lining up a rental. You were truly understanding.
Secondly the house was amazing. And in close proximity to everywhere we wanted to go. Also quiet which helped after coming home from events. It truly felt like home and Kathy was absolutely great in making us feel welcome when we arrived
We ended up figuring out the Internet issue. Which I'm sorry I did as in this Internet age it was actually cathartic not having access for those few days. Also the air conditioning not working in the living room wasn't too bad as the breeze and the fans kept the place cool. Our cooks were satisfied with what the kitchen had to provide and we tried to make as much use of it as possible.
I would absolutely recommend this to other people interested in coming to Barbados.
Thanks again and if our plans become official to attend crop over next year we shall be in touch.
All the best,
Christopher Txxxxx & company
Decent sized villa with three bathrooms, decent showers, three air conditioned bedrooms, and wifi, between Oistens (~3 km) and St. Lawrence gap (~2 km) about 4 blocks from nearest small white sand beach that is great for swimming but will soon be inundated with people as new resort about to open. Large kitchen but tiny coffee maker, broken microwave, fridge on it's last legs -- tidy but not clean -- if you want decent glasses bring your own. Gas stove works great and charcoal grill for those who like to BBQ, On bus route to get groc ... about 3 km either direction to supermarkets ... small convenience store one block away.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this beautiful home. The home is a approximately 15 minute walk to St Lawrence Gap where there are several restaurants, beaches and nightlife. Closer to the home approximately 5 minutes away is another beach. Oistins is a short bus ride down the street or a 20 minute walk. Several buses run along the main road just steps from the complex, everyone on the island is so friendly and it is easy to catch a bus to other parts of the island. The house comes with all amenities that you will need, we were all ecstatic about the wifi! The outside veranda was a great spot to lounge and enjoy the beautiful garden. The kitchen is large and well equipped and the dining room and living room are also accommodating. The bedrooms are all a decent size with plenty of storage. All three bathrooms are full bathrooms with shower and toilet. The house is well-kept and very clean. My only complaint is the response time from the owner was a bit slow when we had a few questions closer to the time we were arriving, otherwise she was very responsive and helpful. Their welcome packet had all the information and instructions you need. I would definitely return and would recommend this house to anyone!
We had an amazing first experience in Barbados. The property owners were very very helpful with information on getting around and suggestions towards areas to explore. The villa was big enough for the 7 of us. We felt like we were at home from day 1. It was very very clean, cozy and filled with amenities. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. We came up from Toronto and New York and would definitely stay here in the future. It was also very close to the St. Lawrence Gap and Beaches. roughly a 10-15 minute walk at most.
Legacy Villa was the perfect vacation spot for me and a few friends. Stephanie was terrific at reaching out and making sure we had all the information we needed to find the villa and even arranged for a driver to meet us at the airport (it is a bit difficult to find, so I would suggest this). The villa was clean and provided us with all we needed to enjoy our time in Barbados. We enjoyed the location which was walking distance to Oistins, the Gap, and many beautiful beaches. The home comfortably sleeps 8 and includes all of the amenities listed. I liked having the ability to do laundry. We loved hanging out on the back porch which was secluded and quiet. We hope to return again soon. We loved the Surfers Cafe in Oistins and I am glad we stumbled upon it early in our trip. Great food, coffee, and view.
The house was great and perfect for a group of friends. We enjoyed the patio , really cosy and Turtle beach was only 5 minutes by walk. The location the house was perfect, close to The Gap with clubs, restaurants and bars.
Beautiful place, beautiful beaches, beautiful people, we allready looking forward to come back in Barbados.
I strongly recommand you to enjoy your holidays in Legacy Villa !
Location was in good proximity to the beach and incredibly close to the St Lawrence Gap. Enjoyed the spacing in the house as it accommodated 8 people easily. Loved every minute of this trip to Barbados and completely recommend this property to anyone traveling with a large group.
Legacy Villa is located off of Maxwell Main Rd. opposite Hilton Rd. Croton's Inn is the very next block up going toward Oistins.
Other Activities: Friday Night Oistin's Fish Fry, clubbing in St. Lawrence Gap
