Lovely property, ideally situated with great service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for ten nights in July, and I have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay. The house is spacious, traditionally furnished with three big double bedrooms which benefit from both air conditioning and fans so very comfortable for sleeping. We tended to eat out, but the kitchen is fully equipped if you wanted to prepare meals. The back garden is fantastic - very private and pretty with a selection of flowering shrubs and a lovely big pool, and we were thrilled to see monkeys visit us one day. We had a car and visited a lot of the island, but it would be easy to manage without one as the bus stop is close by and it is a few minutes stroll down towards Dover beach and the start of St Lawrence Gap.

Teresa the owner gave us all the information needed and also some tips for local restaurants, and was in constant touch to check all was ok. June the housekeeper was on site to meet us and show us around, and the one minor problem we had with a faulty iron she very quickly resolved by turning up with a replacement. The team were supported by weekly visits from the pool man and Mary the lovely lady who came in to clean.

My top tips would be to visit Oistins for fish Friday, and a trip on the Stiletto catamaran for a fabulous day swimming with turtles.

We had a great time in a nice house with great pool.

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed in a relaxing neighborhood. The pool was great and allowed us to enjoy relaxing around the house without having to rush around. There is AC in every bedroom along with a fan so it was never too hot to sleep. The house is located near Oistins, an outdoor restaurant area where the locals cook their daily catch, this is your best value if you are getting dinner out and it's the best food on the island. The home has all the items you need for cooking, we did breakfast home every day. We enjoyed going to the ocean, it is a couple blocks away. Dover beach has chairs to rent and drinks can be bought right on site. We enjoyed ourselves.

Relaxing Holiday, with fun just down the street

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin, Teresa & Colm couldn't of been more helpful from start, during & finish of our holiday. We've had the most relaxing time in this lovely villa, its a home away from home. There was everything there we needed for our stay. On arrival we were met by June ( housekeeper), Teresa had arranged for her to buy us some groceries & the beers were chilling in the fridge. June showed us around & made herself contactable for our whole stay. The pool is fantastic & kept clean each week by Paul who was very entertaining. We spent most of our time in & around the pool. Although the villa is near The Gap its so quiet & a sun trap idea for sunbathing. Even the garden provided entertainment with its wildlife, monkeys, humming birds, dragon flies, lizards & chickens. There are shops near by that sell everything. Massey stores (supermarket) are brilliant & provide a free taxi back to your door. Reggie buses & Taxi's with (no.11 or no.3) are amazing & just $2 each. Dover beach just 5 mins walk away is stunning, there are loads of local eateries & shops. There is also a Virgin Hut offering tours with a very lovely English lady (Chris), who loves to share her 18 years of living in Barbados knowledge, doesn't matter if you are not with Virgin. Not forgetting the food vans selling local food, well nice.

I could go on & on & on.......

Would definitely go back & highly recommend this villa, was so sad to leave.

Kind regards to Teresa & Colm

Absolutely awesome

  • 5 of 5

Well what can we say, from the moment we enquired about this fabulous Villa to the moment we left Barbados, Teresa & Colm were totally amazing and accommodating in every way. The Villa itself was absolutely perfect and the pool was awesome, we were devastated when it was time to leave. It was a 5 minute walk to the Gap, which had lots of amazing shops, restaurants and of course the beautiful Dover Beach & cocktail bar, where we enjoyed many Pina Coladas. You can catch the Reggae bus on the main road for $2, which is also only a 5 minutes walk away, ideal for a trip into Bridgetown. The villa itself is set back from the busy Gap in a lovely relaxing & quiet area, but as said before not to far away from the hustle and bustle of Barbados life. Teresa was absolutely fantastic and responded immediately with any queries we had, prior, during and at the end of our holiday. She even arranged a replacement BBQ for us, as the old one had broken. She gave us some excellent recommendations for place to eat, car hire services and lots of other suggestions that proved value for money for us. I would not hesitate to stay in this beautiful villa again, the pool was stunning and sun came up around 7.15am, where we enjoyed our breakfast on the decking and in the evening BBQ's on the terrace as the sun went down. Teresa and Colm were faultless as hosts and the housekeeper and pool man were really friendly and helpful too. Thank you again Teresa and Colm, we will have no hesitation recommending this property to family and friends in the future. We only hope we will be able to visit Barbados again and stay in this stunning place. Kind regards Jo and family x

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely awesome! The hosts are such amazing people and really went out of their way to help us out in so many ways from arranging for MC Turtle Man to come to the house and explain his tours to making sure we had some food and drink supplies when we arrived!

The pool and outdoor area is a must and we used it every day close to everything! We will definitely be back!

Thank you guys so much!
