About Andrew Maynard

Both Alison and I have visited the island many times before. On each occasion, we've had a fantastic experience and have come to relish time spent there so much so, that we decided to build our own dream house. We enjoy the relaxing ,rejuvenating and colourful lifestyle the Island offers and are always sad to leave. Our home in the sun invites soothing ocean breezes and boasts harmony and tranquility. My wife and I feel its only right others enjoy what the island has to offer as much as we do; we would like to welcome you to Barbados and to Serenity!

Andrew Maynard purchased this villa in 2008

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa that has everything you need! It was a little bit hard to find the way to the villa, even for the taxidriver, so be shure to print the out the driving instructions in the contract and give it to the taxi driver.

Beautiful Inch Marlow Villa

  • 5 of 5

This hidden gem is a must visit! Myself along with 6 others (2 daughters, son-in-law & 3 grandchildren, 8, 12 and 15) traveled from the US and stayed at Serenity house over the Christmas and New Year holiday. (apologies for the late review). From the first time Andrew and I communicated on Airbnb’s website, I knew that his professional and helpful manner would weigh heavy on my decision to book this villa in Inch Marlow. My only reluctance was the location. During my numerous stays in Barbados, we normally stayed in the Worthing/St Lawrence Gap vicinity to be in close proximity to the “touristy areas”, without needing to book transportation. After my adult daughters saw the pictures of Serenity House, I was immediately persuaded to book.

Upon arrival, the villa was just as impressive as the pictures. We were greeted by a gentleman named John, who also gave directions to our cab driver because of the somewhat remote location. We arrived on Christmas Eve afternoon, and because of the back to back holidays (Christmas & Boxing Day) Andrew graciously made arrangements for John to provide us with staples upon arrival. Andrew was also so very kind to have left a bottle of wine for the holiday for my family to enjoy.

The entire home was spacious, neat and very comfortable. We all settled into our selected rooms, and I continued to be amazed by the breathtaking views from the master bedroom. There is another bedroom that shares the amazing views as well. All of the bedrooms have air conditioners, which I rarely used because of the natural cool breeze, coming from the ocean.

We enjoyed exploring and we even found a $1 US van stop, only a 5 minute walk from the house (right behind “bubbas” store). With the stop only mere minutes away, it gave us easy and affordable access to all of Barbados. Serenity house soon became more of a welcoming retreat, each time we returned from the local hustle and bustle. The tranquil and beautiful location greatly enhanced our overall experience.

There are many beach accesses nearby. We found that if you cut through a field, just east of the house, you will arrive at Surfer’s Point resort. Surfer’s point offers surfing lessons and surfing rental equipment as well as breakfast and lunch (which was very affordable). Also, close by is another small resort, Ocean Spray that offers yoga classes and massages. We later partook in a few of these classes, instructed by a lovely young lady named Mandesa. Be prepared for everything

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

From the very beginning of the process to book our stay Andrew was fantastic. Even when I asked lots of questions. When we arrived the home was a little hard to find. Once we called Joyce she met us at a spot we recognized and led us back to the house. She even lead us to the local grocery store when we arrived. She was sweet and very helpful. The home is very large and beautiful! the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The deck down by the pool is huge! It also has a great breeze that comes through at night. It's a wonderful spot to relax. The pool was clean and refreshing. This house was more than enough room for 4 people. We rented a car and learned away around quickly. The locals are very patient with visitors driving there for the first time:) We received a deposit back promptly and would gladly take another vacation to Barbados and stay here again.

There only recommendation I would have is there needs to be a coffee pot, blender and a cookie sheet. Other than that the home is equipped with what is needed. There is a local store a about a mile away where you can get odds and ends and a grocery store about 5 min away. Miami beach is a short drive and the most gorgeous beach I've every seen. Do the fish fry, that was cool and close.

All in all awesome vacation and great place to stay. You will not be disappointed!!

Beautiful,light and airy

What a fantastic place to stay!

We went there last summer and will be returning shortly for our second visit.

From the impressive exterior we saw as we arrived to the magnificent spacious interior. We were all delighted with our bedrooms upstairs and loved spending time downstairs in all different parts of the house, especially the large back veranda looking down over the pool to the sea.

We had trips to Oistins, a safari, a catamaran trip, but the favourite was Hunte's gardens, which was stunning and we will visit again.

We were well looked after and would be more than happy to recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful house to stay in when they come to Barbados. Serenity is the right name for this house.

Beautiful Villa.....Well-kept.....Spacious.....Tranquil Location.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we decided to stay at Serenity in Inch Marlow, Barbados, the Villa owner Andrew was very pleasant and helpful. He never hesitated to address any of our concerns, we felt safe and secure from the start of doing business with him.

There was six of us that stayed at Serenity, we felt a comfortable and an inviting feel from the moment we arrived. The Villa was perfect for the six of us, it was beautiful and very spacious. The surrounding area was quiet and tranquil. The view was amazing and the breeze that came from Long Beach right behind the Villa helped us relax as we gathered on the back porch to chat, drink beers, laugh and enjoy our stay.

Traveling to Oistin's and the inner city via bus and taxi was simple. The Villa provided car service information if needed and information about other things to do in the island.

The staff was very welcoming and friendly, Joyce the Villa manager was a very nice, she provided us with a tour; leaving her number in the event we needed it. She also took the time to checked in on us midway through our stay.

Linda the housekeeper was a very pleasant too she came to the Villa twice during our stay. We barely knew she was there. The Villa was well kept.

The only thing that we would suggest is that the Owner/HomeAway should provide a more detailed list of what renters should bring such as extra bathroom tissue. We thought Linda would refill the bathroom tissue and we learned during her second visit that we should have purchased some at the market but once Linda learned that we were short she located us and extra roll.

Overall, staying at Serenity was a wonderful experience.
