About Edward Brabenec
We are a well travelled family who enjoy the many wonderful joys that the world, and life, has to offer. The relaxed and peacefull caribbean culture is one of our favourite loves.
Edward Brabenec purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Edward Brabenec chose Welches
Travelling to Barbados for almost 40 years tells you enough. Many things may have changed over the years however, the undeniable true characteristics that have remained are the people and culture of Barbados. They are second to none. Salt of the earth. Being located directly on the ocean did not interest us very much. Do not get us wrong, the beaches and the ocean beauty are second to none in the caribbean but to truly experience the sweetness of Barbados is to experience it directly within the bajan culture. Choosing a property that allowed us to mix with the locals and live with the locals was paramount in our property purchase.
What makes this Villa unique
On site you can enjoy the comforts of home with laundry, clean off your salt and sand with an outdoor shower, and kick up your feet on expansive patio spaces or open concept living. Waking up for a morning walk to the beach and being greeted by the locals 100% of the time is heartwarming. A local pub, Oistens Fish Market, and their famous Friday night Fish Fry, a grocery store, are all steps away. The St. Lawrence Gap is only a 15 minute walk away.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.

One month in Barbados - what could be better - well this villa made it better. There were four (and sometimes six) of us staying in the upper unit of the villa and it was just as advertised. It was bright and airy; extremely clean; the beds comfortable; the kitchen well equipped; and it was close to the local minibus transportation (just US$1 per trip) which picks you up and lets you off anywhere you want from Oistins to Bridgetown. Local buses were the same price to attractions all over the island. We didn't need air conditioning in the villa as with the windows open there was a comfortable breeze blowing through. The owner, Ed, was prompt in answering questions and provided links and lots of Barbados information. The managers, Jonathan and Sonia, were extremely helpful and provided all we asked for. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting to spend time in Barbados.
Best Place on the Island
This Villa had tons of room, all the essentials and walking distance to all our favorite spots. This Villa is in the Heart of what Barbados is and you get to experience a real vacation. Its the only place I will ever visit, and cant wait till I go back!
Cottage life in Barbados!
Had a great time at the Maya's Bajan Villas w a bunch of the guys.
Place is bigger than expected, has all the amenities you could possibly need.
Walking distance to all the essential places like the market and the beach - quick drive to some of the public beaches, restaurants and even Bridgetown.
Enjoyed a guys getaway here at Maya's Bajan Villas and I can`t recommend it highly enough. Clean, breezy, spacious, a home away from home in a tropical paradise. The property is as close to the real Barbados as a visitor can get and makes a great base to explore the island and have an alternative to the typical sheltered beachfront all-inclusive. Beaches are definitely there; the local one down at the end of the street or the trendier Dover beach and the Gap a few minutes drive further. Try one of the local minivan taxis for a ridiculously cheap mode of transport to all the resorts, beaches and sights that puts you in touch with the true local experience. On other islands this might not be a good thing, but not in Barbados. The people make this place awesome. They are the most friendly, polite and considerate folks in a tropical setting ever. You WANT to get around and mingle. Try that in Jamaica or Dominican (no thanks). Friday night Fish fry and jump up in Oistens is the place to be after a week of surfing, sightseeing and well deserved relaxation at Maya`s.
BEST PLACE EVER!!!!
We had a lovely relaxing stay at Maya’s. I came in direct contact with the owner, Edward. From there on it was an uphill experience. We were 3 generations that felt very privileged to stay on your property for a week while exploring the beautiful island of Barbados.
We arrived and were warmly greeted by Sonia on the terrace. The house is even better than it appeared online. Beautiful view, comfortable bedrooms, tasteful decorations and the house was clean, clean, clean. (That was my biggest fear)
Sonia and John were wonderful to work with. The kitchen was easy to work in, we cooked dinners there the nights we did not eat locally. We cooked breakfast each morning as the grocery store was within walking distance. Both villas were really lovely and had everything we needed, dishes, clothing iron,pots, pans, WIFI phone books extra beach towels...Everything was considered.
The beds were comfortable and the nights were very peaceful and quiet.
As a Texan, naturally my next concerns were mosquitoes and a lack of air conditioners. Neither of these were ever a problem. Literally every room in both units have fans and an abundance of windows which combined kept cool air circulating throughout the villa.
Even though the villas were gated, my boyfriend loved that there is a safe where you can store your valuables and that there are motion lights for extra security
Altogether it was an unforgettable vacation with amazing memories hopefully to be repeated in the near future. This is bar none the BEST place to stay in Christ Church. Again, the professionalism paired with warmth of Sonia, John and Edward were top notch.
Nestled in the heart of Barbados between the beautiful fishing town of Oistens and the energetic tourist area of St. Lawrence Gap. Shops, beaches, restaurants, groceries, medical, pubs are all located within a 5-15 minutes walk.
