About Gwen Gill

We are a family of 6. This is our holiday home in Barbados, built by us from scratch and finished 4 years ago. We designed it to make the most of the cooling breezes passing through the tropical Glade in which it stands while being a short walk form our favourite West Coast Beaches, Gibbs and Mullins. In short, we have everything here to make a holiday as easy and relaxing as possible. Now that we have teenage children, they can come and go to the beaches as and when they like .yes we are that close!!

A stunning, beautifully furnished home

  • 5 of 5

We are two families who stayed at Gibbs Breeze over the Easter holidays (our children are 10 and 8). The house is beautiful with a wonderful private pool and luxurious fixtures and fittings. The master bedroom with ensuite, walk in wardrobe and private balcony is especially wonderful. The house is laid out well with 2 bedrooms on the ground floor and 2 on the second floor. The kitchen is well stocked and the house has plenty of outside areas to escape from the sun if required.

Marcel the housekeeper was great and looked after us well. Gibbs Breeze is located just over a 5 min walk from both the stunning Gibbs and Mullins Beaches. There is also a bus stop a short walk away that will take you across the island. We tried out many of the local restaurants, our favourites being Mullins Beach Bar and the Fish Pot.

We chose the house for its location and size but have ended up booking for a second year because of its welcoming family atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble and when the house telephone was out of use we was left with a mobile phone so that we could still call and make local dinner reservations. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gwen's home.

Fabulous Gibbs Breeze

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults and 2 children aged 4 and 6 years) just returned from a fabulous couple of weeks at Gibbs Breeze.  It's an elegantly-decorated, spacious house, well equipped for self-catering. The outside space is very comfortable with lots of sofas and loungers and the pool is very inviting (and deep enough for kids to jump in).

The house was well looked after by Marcel whilst we were there (housekeeping twice a week) and Candace, the house manager, checked in on us a few times too. 

The house is well located, being a 5 minute walk from either Gibbs beach (our favourite on the island) or Mullins beach.  We've stayed in a few villas in this area and this is by far the best one, it offers great value for money in this location. We'll be back!

Family holiday in paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start. We have (sadly) just returned from the most fantastic holiday at Gibbs Breeze. The villa itself is beautiful, very well-equipped with everything we needed and very spacious, lovely pool / outside area.

Gwen has been incredibly helpful and sent us lots of useful information prior to our trip. Her "team" in Barbados are wonderful, Candace and Marcel keep the house beautifully and have looked after us really well, Dave provided airport transfers, again he was lovely.

Villa is in an idyllic location, situated just 5 mins from Mullins and Gibbs beaches, both of which are beautiful. We hired a car and so were able to explore and enjoy many more parts of this wonderful island.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Gibbs Breeze. Thank you Gwen and your family for sharing your beautiful home, we would love to visit again - a truly magical holiday.

A fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa, very well equipped and comfortable; it feels more like a home than a holiday rental. The outside space really makes the villa, it’s very private with plenty of comfortable furniture. The pool is a good size for a villa pool and was well maintained and lovely and warm.

The villa is in a great location, it’s a short walk to both Gibbs and Mullins beaches. Gibbs is an idyllic Caribbean beach, lovely and peaceful with no facilities. Mullins has a lively beach bar, sun loungers for hire and a range of water sports.

You don’t need a car if you don’t wish to hire one. There are 4 restaurants within walking distance and it’s easy to get to Holetown and Speighstown by bus where there are plenty of restaurants and shops. There are also loads of taxis. The villa has a phone that you can use for local calls making it easy to make restaurant reservations and to order taxis. We hired a car in our second week which was great for exploring the island. We would recommend hiring the sat nav too, even with this it’s quite easy to get lost!

Gwen was great to deal with and provided a lot of information about Barbados and the local area. The people who look after the villa in Barbados are lovely. Marcel was there to greet us when we arrived and showed us around the villa. We didn’t have any problems during our stay but Marcel and Candace both kept in contact, without being intrusive, to make sure we had a great stay.

We would have no reservations about recommending Gibbs Breeze and would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Delighted to hear you enjoyed Gibbs Breeze as much as we do. It is our Barbados home and lovely you felt it to be more of a home than a holiday rental. That's my intention !!! Marcel and Candace are an invaluable part of the whole holiday and provide all the knowledge and experience to make your vacation a memorable one. Thank you for such a lovely review . Look forward to having you back soon !! Gwen

Reminiscing of this wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

It's nearly a year since we stayed here, but to be honest I can't believe I didn't leave a review. This place was an absolute gem!

Ideally set up for enjoying the outdoor spaces we could have stayed here forever.

The location is perfect for exploring the island whilst being a stones through from a fantastic beach. My husband and I enjoyed a walk down most evenings to watch the beautiful sunsets.

The whole island is enchanting but the house tops it off.

We're just trying to figure out when we can come back!

Thanks for making us feel so so welcome.

Beautiful property in a great Location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fantastic. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Marcel the House Keeper, who was welcoming and showed us around the property. It is well set out and very spacious. As soon as you open the front doors you see the pool which is a lovely view. All the bedrooms had on-suite bathrooms which were again very spacious and clean. There is a separate TV room which a couple of our guests found handy when they wanted to get out of the sun. The kitchen had everything you needed and the additional fridge in the utility room came in very handy (storing some of the local Banks beer). The outside eating area was brilliant and we made great use of this area. The pool was beautiful and the gardens well maintained. The owner, Gwen, was excellent to deal with. Having never booked via Owners Direct before, I have to say I was a little nervous. However after speaking to Gwen on the phone and her quick response to emails it soon put my mind at ease. Gwen also put us in touch with the local supermarket and via this contact we arranged for food / drink to be delivered on the day we arrived. This again was another nice touch. Gwen also arranged for a driver, Dave, to pick us up and take us to the airport. He also provided an excellent taxi service to us throughout the holiday. What a lovely man. Would highly recommend you use him as we felt safe and he was very knowledgeable about the island. Gibbs Breeze is located in a quiet location, there is a small path not far from the house which leads you to the main road. Just across the road, you are 5 minutes to Mullins beach and 10 minutes to Gibbs beach. Both are beautiful although we preferred Gibbs as it was so quiet. There are at least three restuarants within easy walking distance and all were beautiful. We never had one bad meal in Barbados. Candace the House Manager was lovely and was quick to make contact with us to ensure everything was ok. Overall a fantastic property which we would highly recommend. The owner was great to deal with and her staff were amazing. We have some wonderful memories, thank you
