These are just a few of the many attractions which we will provide you with details of for your stay.

Keeps getting better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the villa and the property is even nicer now than it was on our first stay 2 years ago.

The yard is even more beautiful now with the addition of lighting and a walkway, you have to see it in the evening to really appreciate it. The balcony area, which was already my favourite part of the house, got even better with the addition of ceiling fans. We spent a lot of time relaxing there and having a leisurely breakfast or reading, enjoying the breeze and the daily routine of the neighbourhood. With such attention to detail and comfort, it’s easy to see that this is a very well maintained property. I felt as if I was staying at a friend’s home, it was so relaxing and comfortable.

As on my first stay, I really appreciated having the second bathroom and the laundry facilities. The kitchen is bright and well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the villa is a short walk to the beach on Paynes Bay, or to the road where you can catch a bus if you wish to visit another beach or attraction. The property managers checked in with us regularly to make sure that we had everything we needed. They were so kind and helpful.

Being in this Barbadian neighbourhood gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in Barbados. It is a beautiful, safe, friendly area close to the beach, restaurants and bus service. We ate more than once at Marshalls bar, a short drive from the villa on Holders Hill, where we got delicious meals with generous portions prepared with care for a very reasonable price. It’s a popular place for cricket fans and one of my favourite places to eat.

Turtles is a perfect place to wind down and relax in Barbados. The villa is a great base if you want to go out and see the island, but it’s also a great place to just sit around and relax. You can cook your own meals or get some local takeout, a bottle of rum or whatever you like, and sit on that fantastic veranda and enjoy the wonderful Bajan breeze. I definitely plan on returning.

We stayed at Turtles for 9 nights in September and we had a wonderful time! Steve and Gill were very helpful throughout the entire booking process and they sent us so much useful information about the island. Anita met us at house, even though our flight was delayed. She knows so much about the island and has a wonderful restaurant close to the Villa that we ate at a couple of times. The Villa is spacious, clean and has everything you need to prepare your own meals. We spent most of our time on the big outdoor patio, which is wonderful. The neighbors were friendly and we enjoyed walking to the beach close to villa. We traveled with 3 couples and everyone really liked the accommodations. We can't wait for our next island vacation! We will certainly be returning to Turtles on our next visit.

Lovely holiday - beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

From the very first contact, we felt that this was the right spot for our Bajan holiday. The owners, Steve and Gill, made us feel welcome and provided us with all the information we could possibly wish for. At our arrival, the property managers made sure that we got introduced to the house and the area right away. The house was as spacious and well-equipped as described and the area with the local residents was friendly and nice. The beach at Paynes Bay is excellent and very close to the property. We swam for hours and often in the presence of friendly and curious turtles. The services and facilities offered at the beach were always good and courteous, and the flying fish meals were very tasty. As we had rented a car, it also was easy to explore the island with lots of interesting sights. The North point and the Atlantic coast were rugged and fascinating whereas the West coast was much more calm with accessible beaches. We had a wonderful time and will definitely come back again. We give "Turtles" our highest recommendation!

This is our second stay at Turtles and most definitely won’t be our last. This villa is situated in a perfect location to see the best of Barbados. Only a few minutes from one of the finest beaches on the island, Paynes Bay beach. This beautifully finished villa offers an extremely spacious and welcoming home from home. The villa is well equipped with a modern kitchen. The large bedrooms are fitted to the highest standard with lots of storage space for all your holiday essentials. The beds are of a good quality and very comfortable. The villa is set in well maintained grounds with beautiful palms and flowering shrubs. A new outdoor terrace area has been built and is ideal for alfresco dining. All the rooms are spotlessly clean, and functional, each with its own individual character. Turtles is situated in a typical Bajan community offering the feel of a warm and welcoming country. We were greeted by the local residents who made everyone feel welcome and a very friendly and safe environment was felt by all.

We would recommend Turtles as one of Barbados’ finest, a treasure not to be missed!

Beautiful villa in local village setting

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at Turtles. The place is decorated so tastefully and it is very clean and comfortable - good beds, lots of places to dine and the kitchen has every amenity. We appreciated the cot and baby bath for our little one. The terrace is really lovely in the morning. Our daughter also enjoyed exploring the little garden surrounding the property.

We were very well looked after - lots of information available and help was always right there via the local property managers who were very kind.

We enjoyed the farmers market as well as the weekend food stall at the end of the road. The beach is less than 10 minutes walk and you can walk for long stretches in either direction - Payne's Bay is magnificent. The villa is situated in what feels like a local village, not a tourist spot per se but we loved it all the more for that reason. We enjoyed meeting our friendly neighbours and it was also very convenient as the Esso just around the corner could cover most basic needs. The bus to Holetown took about 10 mintues to Holetown for good grocery shopping. Highly recommended!

Absolutely lovely Villa. Extremely well equipped. Dave and Anita were very friendly and made sure we didn't want for anything. 5 mins from one of the best beaches on the Island. Hope to go back soon. Would highly recommend. Communication was great throughout. Many thanks.
