|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
The property consists of 3 air-conditioned double bedrooms upstairs and a smaller twin room downstairs. The en suite to the master bedroom is old fashioned but clean and functional. The family bathroom with bathtub has been newly tiled and updated.
There is a huge balcony upstairs that overlooks the tropical gardens with a comfy sofa and football table. There is a smaller private balcony for the master bedroom. The traditional kitchen is separated from the living area by the kitchen counter with bar stools. The kitchen is the original kitchen so is not modern but is clean and functional.
3 sets of double patio doors lead out to the garden and private swimming pool which is surrounded by a patio (partially covered) with outdoor seating and gas BBQ. There are also lovely places to sit along the side of the house overlooking the garden. The gardens contain a variety of fruit trees and a lime tree for your mojotos and rum punches. The property is completed enclosed with stone walls and a wooden sliding gate so children can play safely.
There is an outside loo and shower next to the pool. 5 mins walk is one of the best beaches in Barbados, Gibbs Beach and a little further is Mullins Beach with beach bar and activities for children. Just 10 minutes away are the beautiful golf courses located at the Apes Hill Club and Royal Westmoreland resort.
The caretaker lives on site in an attached unit with separate entrance and will tend to the pool and garden but otherwise leave you alone. Cleaning/housekeeping is not included during your stay but can be arranged.
This is a comfortable family home - it is not luxurious and high end like some of the properties you will find in the area but the price reflects this and you will have a wonderful and affordable stay here.
We divide our time between the UK and Barbados. I am a tour operator with an ATOL licence so can assist with flights if required.
Laura Keene purchased this house in 2015
It's just a 5 min stroll to Gibbs Beach, has a lovely peaceful garden and lovely open plan living area. The bus stop is also just at the end of the road for popping to Holetown or Speightstown if you don't want to rent a car. Mullins Beach Bar has live music some nights and is a great spot to sit and look at the sea with a drink.
Local owner, local knowledge!
Laura was very kind with us and Paul was very helpful. The house was very nice and confortable with everything we needed. Laura also let some food for us, she was realy nice. The house is in a nice place with a beach nearby. We enjoyed very much our stay. Thank you Laura.
Lovely house with everything you need away from home, a stones throw away from one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.
Our hosts Paul and Laura were so friendly and helpful they were the icing on the cake if a most beautiful and relaxing holiday amongst some of the friendliest people in the world.
Looking forward to going back with the family.
I would highly recommend this villa. Located in Gibbes Bay on the West Coast with a choice of 2 amazing beaches (Gibbes & Mullins) within walking distance, there's only positive things to say.
The villa itself is large, bright and airy so plenty of room to really relax. It has a huge BBQ and all the facilities you need, so if you choose days to stay home you have everything there - not to mention a large tranquil garden and generous pool...air con (in the bedrooms) & wifi too!
Paul (Fox) is at hand to help if you need, he made sure we had everything for our arrival (beer in the fridge) and gave us lots of local information, knowledge and recommendations.
Gibbes is a lovely relaxed place with easy transport to 2 closest towns, we didn't really venture further than that as we had it all there - the best holiday, we'll DEFINITELY be back!
We had a brilliant stay her and would recommend to anyone! Paul (fox) could not have done any more for us and was very welcoming and helpful from start to end!
The location as great with just a five minute walk to Gibbs beach and no longer to Mullins beach which were both fantastic! White sand and clear water! What more could we ask for!
There were a few brilliant activities on Mullins beach, I would recommend the fly board for sure!!
All in all a really good holiday and would be sure to return!
We really loved our holiday here at this villa. Paul (Fox) couldn't have been a better host. He was there if you needed him, stayed away if you didn't. He really went out of his way to make us feel welcome and to do whatever he could with respect to telling us where to go, getting food and supplies, hiring a car etc. The villa is great - in a lovely road, really close to the beach. It is wonderfully spacious with everything you could need in a home away from home. Paul and Laura and both really genuine - lovely to meet - and provided great customer service from the moment we booked until we left.
The location is great. Gibbs beach at the bottom of the road is just stunning. I've never seen better sunsets, we ended up there every night. Plus there is Mullins a 10 minute walk away which has loads of family entertainment and good food. The villa is on the best side of the island (I think).
The island felt really really safe and the people are lovely. We were considering Jamaica but we definitely made the best choice coming here.
We will definitely be back and I would absolutely recommend the villa to everyone. Thank you for a great holiday, it was the best family holiday we've had so far!
