The villa was exactly how it is pictured and we saved a lot of money because we were across the street from the ocean, instead of directly on it. The villa was very clean and had plenty of bath towels, beach towels, kitchen supplies etc. We spent a lot of time on a beach which was about a 4-5 minute walk from us because our friends were staying at a resort directly on the beach. There was also a small, uncrowded beach right across the street. We took the local taxis for $1.00 US per person that go up and down the road in back of the villa. They were a lot of fun even though they got quite crowded at times. The taxis will take you all the way to Bridgetown. They speak English in Barbados and it is a very safe island. It is also very hot and humid. My only complaint was that the villa only had AC in the bedrooms and it was too uncomfortable for us to watch TV in the living room when we wanted to unwind in the evenings. There are ceiling fans but maybe a stand up fan would help? Or maybe a TV in the bedroom? We spent 2 and 1/2 weeks in Barbados and had a very nice time.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Barbados for the first time after having visited a number of other destinations as a family. We are a family of four with 2 daughters and found the condo at Verdana perfect for our needs. It is close to a number of beaches, amenities and good restaurants of which we took thorough advantage including snorkeling, boat rides, surfing and of course a few trips to St.Lawerence gap. Being from Ottawa, we had fun at Bert's pub with the kids watching a hockey game in the open air. We immensely enjoyed our stay at the condo and found it very suitable for our needs with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a washer dryer. We look forward to a return visit at some point in the next few years and would like to thank Andrew and Victoria for making our Bajan visit a pleasant experience. Cheers, Lisa.

We had a great time staying at Vervan!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is located steps from a very private beach, sprinkled with just a few people enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We loved that we could just walk out and easily go back to the condo for lunch, etc. You can also walk 5 minutes north on the beach and rent chairs and umbrellas as well as order drinks from the beach bar. We took the bus everywhere, the stop is located at the top of the street, very quick and easy. The "dollar bus" which cost $1 US or $2 Barbados per person will pick you up anywhere along the public bus route, very convenient. Or just wait at the regular bus stop for the big bus. The condo itself was very comfortable, AC only in the bedrooms but that was fine with us, the condo is very breezy and comfortable. Kitchen has everything you will need, also 2 small beach chairs available as well as beach towels. Laundry in unit is very convenient. The property manager was super nice and available anytime if you need anything. Check in and check out quick and easy and our deposit was refunded the same day we left! Condo complex is very quiet, pool looked clean, though the beach is so great we never got in the pool. Would have liked to use the hot spa at night, but couldn't get it to warm up. Condo was very clean and everything in working order. The Sea rocks dome is directly across the street and can be loud on weekend nights, but we closed up and put the AC on in the bedroom and that mostly drowned out the party noise. Accra beach is a quick bus ride away and has a reef that has excellent snorkling. Beaches on the west coast are nice and easy to get to, but we preferred the south facing beaches nearest to the condo. Most tours will pick you up and bring you back, so we asked for pick up at the Barbados Beach Club right across the street since some tours did not know where the Vervan condos are. Oistins Fish Fry is on Friday nights, 15-20 minute walk or 5 minutes on the dollar, vendors, dancing, lots of food and drink, a very fun time! Overall a wonderful vacation and we would definitely rent at Vervan again! Thank you Andrew and Victoria!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tina & Dan for another 5 star review!!!! When we purchased the condo a few years ago we tried to pick a central location that would be close to fabulous beaches as that is what people come to Barbados mainly for, We also tried to pick a location that had accessibility to pretty much everything you would expect from a Barbados holiday. Whether it be day trips to the caves or a rum tour or an evening out at Oistins Fish Fry your only a short stroll away from everything. Our condo is as close as you can have to having all of your conveniences of home in a caribbean island getaway. So come to Barbados and stay with us and start making your own holiday memories. Best Regards Andrew & Victoria

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in a very good location, just a short walk across the street to a semi - private little beach and a short 5 minute walk to a more popular crowded beach. Located just off a busy road, you have quick access to many restaurants but without the traffic and noise of the main road. Pretty centrally located for surfing on the South Coast between Freights/South Point and Brandons a little further up.The condo was super clean and had everything you could need. Although we ate out every meal, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything to prepare a meal. The pool and hot tub in the courtyard were also very clean and inviting. The property manager was very easy to access and called a few times during our stay to check in and see if we needed anything and how our vacation was going. St. Lawrence Gap and Oistens are both within walking distance with a heap of excellent eating options.

Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a safe, quiet, comfortable stay in Barbados.

Owner's Response: Hi Mr Wagner We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us and found our place so accessible to all of the restaurants and beach options where you can lay back and chill or go surfing. When we designed our condo we tried to think of every convenience that you would have at home and would want while still vacationing in a Caribbean island, according to your review we succeeded. Thank you for choosing Vervan as your holiday destination and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Best Regards Andrew & Victoria Chalmers

Great location for exploring Barbados

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this lovely condo. Everything was exactly as pictured, clean, and in brand-new condition. I was concerned about only having a/c in the bedrooms but this really was not a problem at night. We slept wonderfully on the very comfy bed, but it was a bit muggy during the day even with the windows open. Having a washer and dryer in the place was also great. There were beach towels so we didn't have to pack those, and even a couple of beach chairs that were in great condition. I am not able to walk very far due to arthritic knees, but there was a lovely beach just across the road. In fact, it seems like everywhere we went there was a beach! We checked out most of them. (A rental car is a must to enjoy the entire island.) There was a grocery store very close, and a convenience store less than a block away for grabbing a couple of Banks beers;) We at at Oistins 3 of our 7 nights there because the food was amazing! The snapper at George's and the mixed fish platter at Chillin and Grillin are not to be missed. We drove down to it and had no problem finding parking, but it is just a short walk for those who don't want to rent a car. During our trip Barbados was experiencing an unusually large influx of seaweed on both the East-side and West-side, but we were able to find lovely, clear beaches on the north west side for swimming and snorkeling. The snorkeling right from shore was even better than the Virgin Islands. If you do have a car, there really isn't a reason to pay for the tour boats to swim with turtles. We found about a dozen to swim with and observe at Port St Charles, and the coral formations were vibrant and healthy. And having the refreshing pool and jacuzzi to return to each night was perfect. Why not 5 stars? Just a couple of personal preferences: I would have liked to have a/c throughout the condo, an icemaker for the freezer, and a full-length mirror somewhere in the condo. That being said, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who does not have problems with stairs. The neighbors were friendly and helpful, the owner was wonderful and responsive to all my questions, and we had a great time exploring the the entire island. Although we rarely visit the same place twice, we are keeping an eye on airfare so we can return to this lovely island.

Owner's Response: Hello Sandie & James, We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us!!!! From beach towels and beach chairs to top of the line mattresses and linens the list is endless, This condo has it all. We have tried to think of every modern convenience that anyone could want and at the end of the day you are on a tropical island with all of these conveniences.( How Can It Get Any Better). Yes it can get a bit muggy in the Barbados 30 + degree weather but the AC/units in the bedrooms guarantee you will get a great sleep. We inquired to the Condominium board about installing AC/units in the livingroom area however as there is only one outside wall that it could be installed on and the wall to wall windows will not allow for the inside unit to be mounted there, Instead we opted for the next best thing and installed 3 ceiling fans between the livingroom and kitchen - dining area. These 3 ceiling fans really keep the air moving thru that portion of the condo. Our fridge has a plastic storage container that can hold roughly 4 ice cube trays full of ice as automatic water and ice dispensers are not allowed in the condo in case of accidental water leakages into other condo units. We are currently in the process of installing a full length mirror in the master bedroom so our guests can make sure they look there best before heading out for a night on the town. The pool and jacuzzi are always a welcome relief after a hard day of exploring the beautiful island of Barbados. The direct access to the south coast beaches is an added bonus and great for early morning jogs or walks. The supermarket is open from 8am-8pm seven days a week and is great for those necessities when you first arrive or thereafter, it is merely a 2 min walk from the condo. We are glad you found our condo so conveniently located and whether you were relaxing by the beach or pool or were going on an island adventure you were never really that far from home. We look forward to seeing you again in Paradise real soon. Best Regards Andrew & Victoria.
