Ideally located on the 'platinum' west coast, between Speightstown and Holetown, GGV is situated in an established, safe and peaceful neighbourhood, known as Gibbs Glade. The idyllic, Gibbs Bay, with its crystal clear Caribbean waters is tucked away, just a short (4 mins) stroll away. Whilst the livelier Mullins Beach, with its legendary beach bar/restaurant, loungers for hire and water sports, is just 5 minutes walk via a short cut.
GGV offers a pleasing inside/out living experience with plentiful relaxed seating and ambient alfresco dining. Set in a third of an acre, with a distinctive palm tree perimeter, the landscaping has been planned to provide privacy. The carefully tended gardens surround an attractive, well maintained, circular swimming pool with sun loungers, tables and chairs, where one can enjoy the sun all day. When you need to take a break from the rays, there are parasols and natural shade provided by the various palms. This east-facing oasis enjoys the gentle trade winds and there is an outside shower for freshening up. Keep an eye out for the humming bird who is a regular afternoon visitor and maybe even a monkey or two will pass by.....
The open plan layout of this single story property is ideal for multi-generational family holidays as well as couples getaways. There is air conditioning in each bedroom and ceiling fans in every room and on the rear verandah. There's a Bose bluetooth speaker and WiFi throughout the villa.
The well-equipped kitchen has all new appliances including multifunction electric oven with ceramic hob, large refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, Cuisinart grind & brew, blender, juicer, toaster and a washing machine, exclusively for guest use. There's a large multi-burner gas barbecue on the rear terrace and a 40" Hi-Def flat screen TV with cable package above the granite breakfast bar.
The Studio near the pool houses a 55" curved ultra HD TV with full cable, Netflix and DVD player, comfy leather sofa, rowing machine, exercise bike, light weights and yoga mats. There's a basketball hoop on the fully enclosed front yard where there is parking for 4+ cars.
The authentic Speightstown, full of Caribbean charm, is approx 5 mins by car with the more vibrant Holetown with the stylish Lime Grove housing designer shopping, chattel village and numerous restaurants just 10 mins drive away.
A car is recommended, but by no means essential. Alternatively there is a bus stop less than 10 mins walk and taxis are readily available and are reasonably priced. The villa has a preferred local service.
There are a couple of supermarkets within an easy drive (Massy in Holetown and Jordans in Speightstown)and a 24/7 petrol station within walking distance (500 meters) which has a wide selection of convenience items available. The local fish market 7 mins drive, plus numerous restaurants and bars, all located within a short drive GGV. Mullins and Bombas are within walking distance.
The grounds are fully enclosed and the whole exterior of the property is frequently fumigated to keep mosquitoes at bay. There are electric mosquito zappers on the rear terrace, plus netting on all windows. Access controlled gate entry, together with all-night 360 degree security lighting provides that extra peace of mind.
We do not enforce a set check-in/check-out time, but broadly speaking, its around 12:00 and 16:00. Whilst we will always do our best to accommodate guest needs, we do require full cooperation in the event of a same-day turn around, when these times will need to be adhered to. On same-day changeovers (which we do our best to avoid)guests will need to vacate the main villa by midday, but the garden suite, studio and pool area will be at your disposal until 14:00
Housekeeping is 5 times per week, for approx. 4 hours, usually between the hours of 09:00 and 13:00 but as the villa and grounds has lots of space, the presence of discrete GGV staff should never impinge upon our guests privacy. Our villa manager is on hand at all times.
From start to finish, we will do our utmost to ensure your vacation is hassle free and fabulous. Just relax, unwind, soak up the rays and sink into the quality comforts of Gibbs Glade Villa and enjoy the spectacular 'platinum' coast of beautiful Barbados ......
