Excellent location and very well equipped.

Very good and fantastic location. However, there is a lot of building work now going on around the house and so there is a lot of associated noise at the moment.

Wonderful house and fantastic beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family stay at Las Palmas, the house is beautifully decorated, really comfortable and homely with everything you could possibly need. The large garden, with hot tub is a great place to relax and if you are really lucky you may have a visit from the neighbourhood monkeys in the evening!

The beach is a short walk from the property and is picture postcard perfect, bright blue sea, white sand and turtles swimming a couple of meters from the shore!

It is only a few minutes drive or bus ride from Holetown with it's fantastic shopping, large supermarket and a variety of restaurants. We also highly recommend sunset cocktails on the beach at Daphne's which is a five minute walk from the house.

Sharon who manages the property was so helpful, she organised our airport cars as well as car hire, sourced boat trips and even organised for us to have food delivered for our arrival, nothing was too much trouble.

We can't wait to return!

Would not return

  • 3 of 5

I am sorry but my experience of this house and general upkeep and service is not glowing as others seem to find .

We were met by Andrew as arranged by Sharon who is employed by the owner .

He did not seem to be allowed to pull in and pick us and our luggage up so he drove around for a bit and eventually was able to .

His vehicle was small for 5 people and luggage .The boot was stuck and so were the seats .So our luggage went in then we climbed over the seats( I am 59 and my sister 60)so not something we do every day! And then his Air Con didn't work either .

We arrived and it took some time to get out of this tiny van and climb over the seats and get our luggage.

We were greeted by Sharon who was in a rush ,she quickly showed us around there was no big inventory or anything.

She told us ,no dishwasher it doesn't work.No apology.

We went out and noticed that our taxi was not typical and others were ok to use and they head seats that folded back air/con.

During our stay building work started and sitting in the garden was noisy and it woke us up every day early.

The master bedroom bed was very uncomfortable ,the pillows yellow and stained ,the drawers unusable and stuck.Bathroom very dated .

The other two bedrooms and bathroom were fine .

The extractor fan in the kitchen did not work ,the frying pans needed a scrub ,the washing machine seems terrible ruined some of our clothes so stopped using it.

Wooden chair in the dining room had large 4" splinters sticking out which scratched one of our girls quiet badly.

We were given 4 towels for 5 people.

We decided to make the best of it and not let it ruin our holiday .

We declined offers of a Taxi, we booked our own.

There was a lot of pressure for us to leave promptly .

We had our taxi booked and waiting at exactly 11 am Sunday morning.

Sharon said she would be there at 10.50 so we were ready .She arrived at 11.05 and wanted to go over things while our taxi waited .

We had to go as he had another booking and we had booked a day room at a resort as our flight was not until the evening.

There was no option to stay or help to find a day room ,we did it ourselves.

Finally we have been charged £50 for a missing knob .That is aproxx

120 BBS dollars.

The owner has not offered a refund or any compensation for all the things i mentioned .

She apologized and pleaded ignorance but no money back for the knob she charged us for. There is no way we can prove or know if it was there when we arrived.

Owner's Response: Dear Suzan Thank you for your review. Once again, I am so sorry you had such a disappointing stay at my home. I tried to discuss this with you on the phone, but you wanted to communicate only via email. It is disappointing that you did not mention any issues with my property or your stay until I contacted you post stay with regards to your security deposit being deducted for a broken table lamp? The lamp that was broken is BDS$399.95 from Dwellings Barbados. Hence a deduction of £50 does not cover the cost of a new lamp to match the other beside lamp un the room. As I mentioned to you on several email chains, had you informed either myself or Sharon with regards to all of the issues you mention at the time, then I would never have deducted your deposit and again, I did mention refunding you?? I am sorry that you felt it then necessary to personally insult myself, the villa maid and villa cleaner with regards to our character? I am unsure why you would tip the maid when departing the property, but then communicate that she was unprofessional to me on email? I have noted all of your issues with the villa and apologise again that you felt so many things were wrong with the property and it's surroundings that I not in control of. This is at odds with all other reviews received for the house before your stay, but I have taken onboard your comments. I do hope for your next stay you find a property that meets your standards, and when asked during your stay if everything is OK, you mention any issues there and then so that they can be rectified. Regards Karen

Las Palmas is a wonderful Bajan style villa. It has everything you need to make you feel at home.

  • 5 of 5

Las Palmas is 5 minutes walk to Paynes Bay beach. We walked along the beach as far as alleynes beach. There are a few bars and restaurants along the way. Also plenty of water sports.

We hired a car for two days and day one headed north to the flower cave and to the wildlife reserve. Day two we went to Bathsheba and the Botanical gardens. We had lunch at The Round House restaurant. A must.

We went on Segways and Cool Runnings Catermeran. Fun days out.

For evenings Harbour lights was a great night.

Best of Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Karen's house for the last five years. It's our annual winter holiday location. We love the house because it's clean, comfortable, relaxing, and we feel extremely safe here! The house is close to the beach, bus stop, and close to excellent restaurants. Looking forward to 2018 already!

4th stay and planning on returning again!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Las Palmas four times now and planning our 5th trip in 2017! This house gets better every year! Karen, the owner, has a true pride of ownership in the house. Communication and rental of the unit is easy and seamless. I absolutely love the villa manager, Sharon, and the housekeeper, Daphne, they are both so wonderful and welcoming, You will not regret staying here!!!! It's paradise!
