A little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Green Gates was a perfect place to spend a week with our 4 teenage children. Walking distance to all the hotspots we wanted to visit (St. Lawrence Gap and Oistins) the most pleasant surprise was the peaceful little beach across the street where our kids could go take a dip or body surf to their hearts content while we leisurely made our preparations for the days adventure.

The property is well kept and Sharon and Peter were thoughtful to leave us a few items in the fridge to set a wonderful tone for our little family getaway. They checked in regularly to ensure we were enjoying our stay and were always ready to help with any inquiries we may have had.

Highly recommend this location on the south coast especially if you plan to use public transport. The bus stop is at the top of the street and buses to Bridgetown or Oistins can be regularly caught without much delay.

It truly was a perfect location for our family and we hope we get another opportunity to visit Barbados and stay at Green Gates again.

Gem in Maxwell!

  • 5 of 5

The Green Gates holiday home was the perfect setting for our recent three week stay in Barbados. Perfectly located in a quiet area close to beaches, it offers everything you'll need for a comfortable "at home" stay. Hosts Sharon and Peter are the epitome of Bajan hospitality...kind and gracious and willing to help in any way. We would highly recommend this location.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Travelled to Green Gates for 11 nights with a 3 year old and 11 month old. The house was very clean and it was great that a crib and high chair were provided. Having air conditioning in the bedrooms was fantastic. The kitchen was well equipped for any cooking you plan to do. If you get tired of cooking, we highly recommend you go to the food trucks at lunch hour in front of Bougainvillea. Lots of good food for a great price! Lots of beaches close by and the mini buses were easy to take to many locations. Be sure to go to the Oistins fish fry any day of the week for some great fish. Overall great house exactly as described. Sharon is also very helpful throughout your stay.

Perfect home from home!!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a month in paradise, made even more perfect by staying in what can only be described as my perfect home from home!

This was my 4th stay at a Green Gates & certainly won't be my last.

The house is always spotless & kept to a high standard, it's equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay so you know you have absolutely nothing to worry about when you arrive.

On arrival I was delighted to find the fridge stocked with the basics (including a local beer of course) which is a lovely welcome home.

Sharon & Peter are the perfect hosts, always there if you need them but don't intrude on your holiday.

The house has been fitted with AC in the 2 double bedrooms since my last visit & this made my stay even more comfortable.

If you're looking for a family home in the perfect location for your stay in Paradise then I can't recommend Green Gates enough!!!

Looking forward to my 5th stay already!!

Excellent Service - Brilliant Host

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege of spending 9 fantastic days at this property. Everything was just as described on the site and more. The location was ideal for me because I like the peace and quiet of the location as well as the convenience of being in a location where all the action of the vibrant south coast was just minutes away.

I spent 7 nights at Little gate and finished up my trip on my return to Barbados at Green Gate and I can say both accommodation exceeded my expectation. Both consists of all mod con, was neat and clean with all amenities and was not far from the beach.

On arrival I was met by Sharon who I must say is a fantastic hostess who was always contactable throughout my stay. She made occasional contact to ensure everything was ok and was very accommodating and friendly. There was also a nice little welcome surprise waiting for me which was greatly appreciated as I arrived Easter Sunday and all shops were closed. The housekeeping staff were also bear nice and friendly.

Overall: everything I could have asked for from my holiday accommodation. Thank you Sharon for making my stay in Barbados both comfortable and enjoyable and for extending your generosity on my last day.

I highly recommend this property - you would not regret it.

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at Green Gates with our 15 month old baby. This was the best possible choice for us both in terms of comfort and location. Green Gates is for a maximum of 6 people but probably ideal for 4. The bed in the main room is extremely comfortable and you enjoy the air conditioning in two bedrooms. It has a washing machine which is very useful when you travel with a baby. They also provided beach chairs, beach umbrella, a crib and a high chair for the baby. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood away from the main roads. It has everything you need for your stay and is literally 3 minutes walk from small Maxwell Beach. Personally, we preferred Welches Beach which is only 2 minutes drive from the house near the Oistin Fish Market. Sharon, the owner, is very nice and helpful and we remained in contact during our whole stay. Price, location, comfort. You have it all with the Green Gates. We will definitely come back!
