Lovely villa, great location, easy holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've stayed in John and Janice's villa (see April review). I stayed with my mum, son and nephew, we didn't hire a car this time but as the villa is so conveniently located we were able to easily get around the island. Heywoods beach is a leisurely 10 minute walk, petrol station and Chefette (West Indian fast food chain) 10 minutes and Jordans supermarket 15 minutes. The kids loved the pool and the a/c in the bedrooms is a godsend!

Thank you for another lovely holiday

Excellent stay,

Roomy clean villa near Speightstown, awesome scuba diving with Phil at Reefers&Wreckers and near the best restaurant of the island : Island Plates.

Ideal location and great pool

  • 3 of 5

This property is in an ideal location in a quiet residential street just 10 minutes walk to the centre of Speightstown. It has a really nice pool out the front with plenty of room around it for sun loungers. The neighbours are also very friendly. If you are arriving after dark i would suggest that you stop at a supermarket on the way there to get some provisions as we arrived around 6.30pm, and not knowing where exactly the supermarket was, didnt venture out in the dark so had no water or food until the next day. The supermarket is just a 15 minute walk away, if you cross the main road and head to the beach, this is a nice walk there off the main road. Buses are just a 5-10 minute walk away and for BD$2 per journey they are great for getting around. We used the yellow buses to go to Holetown and Bridgetown.

Unfortunately we had a couple of plumbing problems while we were there. John and Janice responded quickly to my email, and got a plumber to come while we were in to fix one of the problems. There are a few things in the villa in need of repair, but with a little bit of attention these could easily be fixed, as this place could easily have a 5 star rating.

Lovely Villa and Lovely People

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely fortnight at John and Janice's villa. The property is very conveniently placed in Heywoods Park, St Peter which is a quiet residential area, close to Speightstown. Everything you need is walking distance, beaches, restaurants, and the bus station from where you can travel to practically everywhere on the island.

The villa was newly built, clean and well equipped with everything you need. Janice and John were lovely, friendly and went over and above to ensure we had a good stay. As we arrived on a Bank holiday Janice provided us with some basic provisions to keep us going until the shops were open the next day.

I would stay here again and recommend to friends. Vannessa

Car: not necessary

The area is safe scenic and of interest.

Need to see it to believe. Water is a blue with a perfect sunset.

Villa is lovely for rest and relaxation with your own private pool, that you can light up with a touch of a witch, can use it morning,noon or night as temperatures stays more or less the same.
