About Marilyn Hajas

Marilyn and Bob are retired professionals( Electrical Engineer, Secondary School Teacher and Department Head(32 years) who enjoy a Love and Life filled with activity , especially music. Both love to entertain in the small theatre/music world. They especially enjoy doing duets( Elvis/Anne Margret, Johnny and June.They keep active by doing as much of their own maintenance as possible

Marilyn Hajas purchased this villa in 1980

Why Marilyn Hajas chose St. Philip

Teach'n'song is located in a small , quiet ,safe, growing community approximately 10 minutes drive from the airport. The neighbours in the community are often seen out walking and love to stop and chat to visitors, The view and the sounds of the sea and the whistling frogs make the area very special. We first visited the island in 1972 and 'fell in love' with Barbados and the people. We purchased our first home in 1974 at Sunset Crest in Holetown.. St. Philip (where Teach 'n' song is located in Ocean City ) is a magnificent parish, with less traffic noise, Less rain, Fewer (almost Nil) mosquitoes. Wonderful easterly breezes, and genuinely friendly people. We have easy access to Trimart Grocery Store, Kirton's Gas and convenience store, Mr. Fields Rum shop, Maycare pharmacy and Doctor's Office

What makes this villa unique

The villa features solid coral stone walls. This provides a very quiet sound proof environment, As well there is a cooling effect from the Coral Stone . The use of the old solid sugar factory Beams and stone walls reminds one of an Old castle. The villa was cleverly designed and built by a Danish Artist who has left his mark on the villa with unique deign features with arches and step down showers and Sunken living room/lounge area. We love the serenity.

Guestbook comments from the owner

HEllo Marilyn and Bob I first must apologize for not getting a chance to really email you while at the house. The house was amazing, the location was very nice and very easy to find once we got a little familiar with the area. I feel like I don't know what to write to you because honestly I only have wonderful things to say! All good things, the country, the people, the food, the attractions, the beach and of course guests should visit Barbados and should stay at teach n' song. The experience could not have been better, the villa was perfect! We didn't need to use the air conditioner at any point. I loved the breeze.



Thank you again Marilyn and Bob!!!!

Saved our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Marilyn and Bob's Villa Teach-N-Song saved our vacation.

After a brazen and ridiculous break-in at another Villa, we had the great fortune of moving into Teach-N-Song.

Bob & Marilyn made an otherwise horrible start to a vacation so much better and their house was terrific.

While the house is not directly on the beach, it is perched atop a cliff, allowing you to sit pool-side and watch/listen to the waves crash below you. There's a lovely, warm, calming breeze at almost all hours. While we were there in March, the breeze was ideal and never too much.

You'll want to travel to the other side of the island for the beach anyway as swimming is not recommended on the East coast. A car is needed. The Crane Resort is a quick drive away.

The house is open and airy. Our party of six felt comfortable and not cramped.

Thank you Marilyn & Bob for saving our Barbados trip. Until next time!

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The title speaks for itself. If you're looking for a villa that has a fantastic view, warm breezes from the Atlantic Ocean, then you need to visit Teach N Song. We came down with a party of 6 and we were all amazed at how this place looks. There is enough room in the villa where you are not bumping in to one another. The owners Marilyn and Bob are great people. Very helpful, there if you need them. They also arranged for us to get a rental van. We were met at the airport and taken to the villa (short drive). Back to the villa now... Great view of the ocean. You could wake up at sunrise and have a coffee outside and hear the waves crashing on the rocks and feel that nice breeze. Long story short.. We will be back next year. Thank you Marilyn and Bob

Stunning Views and sounds! Best value in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

This has been our second stay at this villa, and again it was great! Our first was for a week in July of 2013. This time we took our 14 year old son with us for Xmas and New Years (Two weeks)

The pictures cannot depict the sights and sounds of this property. The constant ocean breeze, the waves crashing into the cliff, the view from the pool make this a truly unique location.

For those who have not have done a vacation home rental before before and have done the resort thing, this is the only way to go. We have done home rentals in Hawaii, Florida and other locations as well as resorts in Cuba; Panama, Aruba, Jamaica, and Mexico. ) You are on your own schedule and the pool(swimwear optional) does not close at 6 and you have total privacy. Your morning coffee and breakfast views will set the tone for yet another perfect day.

I always put a great deal of research before picking a vacation rental and had some concerns looking at pictures of home before we rented. This was mostly the fact that the rear of the home facing the ocean has no windows or screens.(Only the sides and rear of home do).(Shutters and iron gates provide security) Being a seasoned traveler the concern is of course insects! . Not the case here! Not a bug as the constant breeze keeps them away. (One of the main reasons we returned as sitting by or in the pool at night looking at the stars is magical)

The owners Bob and Marilyn are great and will promptly deal with any little issue that may arise.

Ena the housekeeper is a treasure and she will come in to clean once a week during your stay. We highly recommend you get her to cook for you during your stay. Her curry chicken is amazing!!!

. Bryce car rental has been our choice both times and their rates and service are excellent. Our first time they drove us to villa from airport (5 to 7 minute drive). If you have a Garmin GPS go to Bajan maps and download maps for the island free! Google' meat permit for Barbados,' as steak on Island is pricey and not very good. (Bob and Marlyn can provide you with details)

Beach's on Island are great. Our favorite is Miami or Enterprise (same thing and 15 minute drive) Try the Roti at Mr. Delicious on beach.

Would recommend Cannon Charters for deep sea fishing and Segway Barbados is a lot of fun. Highly recommend the Island and this rental!!!

Limited space or would write more!!

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Teach 'N Song. The villa is as it states and has spectacular views !. We had everything we needed there. Marilyn and Bob are wonderful people and are at hand if we needed anything. The villa was wonderful pool was great. We loved to sit and watch the turtles and fishing boats from the pool. The location was great. I would recommend staying at this villa as this is the best we have stayed at. Ena the housekeeper did a wonderful job. Ocean city is a safe & friendly place to stay on the Island and we would recommend this Villa for anyone. The villa had everything we were sad to leave.

Beautiful Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place to spend our holidays! The view of the sea from this cliff side villa is eye popping amazing.

The villa is equipted with everything you could possibly need, even Ena, the housekeeper! Lovely place, and the pool is to die for. Nothing better than a swim before breakfast. We did the standard tourist things, but, we both read three books, and got in some much needed R 'n R.. Highly recommend this special place in paradise!

Thank you, Marilyn and Bon (aka Elvis)

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough of how great the home and location is. Everything is exactly how it is advertised, interior is very clean and well maintained, the manager Pat, and the owners Marylin & Bob, been always Helpful, It is away from the road so it is quiet from all of the cars, unlike a lot of the rentals, the pool is woderfull and has a beautifull view, They made us feel at home immediately. We would recommend this home to anyone, very close from the airport, and easy to get anywhere you want. The house is a short drive to some beautiful beaches, looking forward to going back soon.
