About David Prescod
David Prescod runs a training company based in Leicester. He delivers digital marketing and ICT accredited courses across the UK.

So much so he has been a guest speaker at the Home Away annual summit for the last 2 years. He also advises other holiday home owners on how to effectively market their properties.

David Prescod purchased this House in 2005
Why David Prescod chose Enterprise
In 1957, Ralph Prescod (father to David and Mark) travelled to England form Barbados on a boat called 'Seriento'. He planned to start a career as a nurse in the NHS. He soon decided on a change of career and became a lecturer in motor vehicle mechanics. It was in England that Ralph met Myrlene (mother to David and Mark) and soon began a family. There were frequent family trips back to Barbados over the years. The past 2 decades have seen both Ralph and Myrlene pass away. The dream to retire back to Barbados was never fulfilled. Their two sons David and Mark searched the island to find a plot of land to build a home in memory of their parents. This home is 'Seriento'.
What makes this House unique
1. Location of the property There are many areas of Barbados which do not have an 'eye to the sea'. This location can claim to have some of the most scenic views on the island. So much so, on the walk down to Miami Beach, you will often see married couples taken their wedding photos there and even musicians filming their videos on the shoreline! 2. Proximity to Oistins One of the most popular towns in Barbados with year round entertainment and the best food to be found anywhere! The food here not only tastes great but is excellent value for money. Oistins is an unspoilt and traditional Bajan town. 3. Peace and tranquility Whether it is a relaxing or busy sight seeing trip that you want, Seriento is a perfect base. Nestled in a private gated community of just 6 homes, you can enjoy all of the privacy that you require. Have breakfast on the terrace watching the humming birds play and enjoying the cool easterly breeze. 4. Entertainment for all of the family Seriento offers all the comforts to make your trip an enjoyable experience. There is plenty to entertain the children including TV, video games and DVD's. A selection of books and board games also keeps the grown ups occupied too.

We have recently came back from staying at Seriento for 14 nights. The property met all of our needs and the location was absolutely perfect. About 12 minutes walk to Miami beach and Oistins. We found the facilities in the property as anticipated and it met all our needs. The only suggestion we have is about updating the computer as we were not able to use it. Also there were problems with fitting my Apple Ipod into the doc. It would be good to have an adaptor that suits all Ipods, Overall our experience of living in the property was very positive and would definitely be returning in the near future. Have also recommended this property to our family and friends, Thanks for making our our stay a wonderful experience. Tony and Dorothea
Tony, many thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. Please do not hesitate to book Seriento again!
Property is nice, stay spoiled by neighbours at number 5
Regular traveller to Barbados stayed at various properties.
Was in Barbados 5 weeks this visit, spent last 5 days here.
If you are going to have visitors from Bajan family or friends do not recommend you stay here, they English owners at number 5 right next door complained about me leaving small communal gate open, when I explained it was left open as we were going right back out, he waved a lock at me and said if I did not close gate he would put the lock on the gate and we would not be able to get out as they were the owners.
He came prepared with the lock, it was not a polite reminder
Gate was left open twice during mid morning for a short period as we were picked up by family, of adults and children, behaviour made our family uncomfortable and unwelcome.
We could be wrong but suspected the reason is they do not want locals there. Spoiled our stay, would not stay here again
Apart from that home is clean, beds comfortable, 15 minute walk from Miami Beach
Old but clean and secure
We have stayed at Seriento for 16 nights. The townhouse is a bit old but clean and secure. We would like to say a big thank you to the housekeeper lady Christine who does a great job to keep this place nice and very clean.
The property didn’t have any computer as was advertised. Not a big deal for us since we have our laptops. There was an old CRT TV set in the house. Ground floor has no air conditioner and it was quite hot. We had to keep doors open but had full room of mosquitos. Ceiling fan didn’t help much. In the kitchen some plates and glass cups were chipped or cracked.
Additionally, it was not any Free Catamaran tour as it has been promised on the web site. We inquired about the tour with local manager Alfredo but he didn’t have any idea about that advertisement and he said it must have been some arrangements made by David but he didn’t tell Alfredo anything about it. So we didn’t get to that free Catamaran tour like it was advertised. We also should admit that communication with David was not consistent and a bit broken for some reason.
The nearest Miami Beach is 1km away. If you take a walk be prepared to walk on the road with cars passing by which is not nice especially when it gets dark. In general roads condition on the island is very bad. The traffic is very slow due to narrow roads and local bus drivers often stop in the middle of the road to have a chat with the bus drivers going the opposite direction. Some car drivers do that too so you have to wait when they finish the conversation.
Borys, many thanks for your stay at Seriento and thanks for your feedback.
We have passed your regards and thanks to Christine.
I am sorry the computer was not there as advertised. it has been removed from the listing as it was not being used.
It is a real shame you did not find the private beach discussed in your pack. This is much closer and need to cross just one road.
Regarding the Catamaran tour, this needs to be booked when finalising payment. As a gesture of good will I would be happy to put on the tour should you decide to stay again.
As you can see I pride myself on the getting 4 and 5 star reviews. Any issue on payment confirmation has been resolved as I now use payment from Home Away rather than our own system.
I trust you look back fondly on your time at Seriento and look forward to welcoming you back at any time.

Wonderful house on a wonderful island!
It took me a while but I am finally taking the time to write this. It was such a wonderful place to be and no snow! The Seriento is clean and modern, we felt at home almost immediately. Perfect location, close to surfing, Miami beach and Oistins. Couldn't ask for more. We enjoyed it so much we will be back for sure next year! Hopefully we can stay at the Soriento again! Thanks David for the rental of your lovely home it was everything you said it would be.

Hi Vanessa and Doug. Thank you for your knind review. We are delighted that you love our home and we would welcome you again next year! Hope to hear from you again soon.
Great Christmas Getaway
We stayed at this lovely unit over Christmas 2011. The location is great - 10 minutes walk to Enterprise beach and about 15 minutes to Oistens (use the cut through behind the post office - ask the locals by the beach, always helpful!). We discovered Chicken Rita's - close by and delicious. We have been to Barbados many times and are never disappointed. The unit is clean, bright and has a wonderful breeze blowing through if you open the front and back door. I love cooking and was glad the kitchen provided all the tools I needed to prepare fish we bought at the market in Oistens. Sitting outside in the evening and listening to the peepers (chirping frogs) while sipping a rum punch was truly delightful. We would stay again and definitely will be recommending to others when they are heading down. You have a gem there.
Take a leisurely stroll and you will be accompanied by the soothing eastern breeze. As you marvel at the some of the most filmed landscapes in Barbados you will soon discover the delights of Oistins fishing village located nearby. Traditionally in Barbados, this village is renowned for its weekly 'Friday Night Fish Fry' festival, one of the islands major attractions. Nestled in a picturesque location on the southern coast, this is a perfect home to either relax and enjoy the natural beauty or explore Barbados. The excellent road network ensures that you can take public or your own transport to experience the variety of attractions that Barbados has to offer. From golf to surfing, historic caves to tropical gardens and from sea cruises to diving there is a mass of activities within easy access. Barbados has the best beaches in the world! It must not be forgotten that Barbados has some of the finest international cuisine so when it comes to dining out you are spoilt for choice.
