Excellent location on quiet beach
Great house on excellent section of beach. House has lots of open covered lounging area to hang out at.
PERFECT BEACH BUT PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AND PRECIOUS TIME!!
I understood that I had rented a house with air conditioned everywhere ...( I see it has been modified in Home Away). I would have NEVER rented it otherwise.
The pictures on Home Away and the reality are different: the pictures were taken a while ago...
There were windows with NO mosquito screens or broken ones so EVERYTHING (monkeys, insects, cats etc..) could come in!
The burglar bars (doors and windows) made us feel in a cage.
The front door and the patio door were closed with number locks from within. What happen if there is a fire?
The front door and the patio door with burglar bars meant that again EVERYTHING could come in during the day...
After 6h30 p.m. we stayed inside (with the Persian doors closed)because of the mosquitoes but could not light anything because mosquitoes were coming in from everywhere!! There were mosquito repellents to use but really … I did not want to spray the interior (24/7) because of our health concerns (my husband and I both work in a health care) . Let you imagine how HOT the room was...
At night we fought mosquitoes in our room … In the morning we woke up bitten...
The air conditioned in our room could not go below 25C even if we asked for it...
Upon our arrival, the pool was dirty. I was told that the pool guy comes only on Monday... (even after he came, the poll was still with sand and got dirty after 4 hours.
The dinner ware was chipped …
The BBQ broke. It was replaced the same day. Thanks!
The dishwasher does NOT work. ( I did not mention it because we found out later during our stay and I did not want to deal with messages etc... After all we were there only 7 days...)
Upon our arrival, (4h30 p.m.), the house was not ready (only one room cleaned). The lady told us she would come back the following day to finish it!!! First, we paid for a three room house with three bathrooms. Of course we did not need them but to see them unclean is not my definition of feeling welcome... I told the lady NOT to come back. When I booked the house last July I specifically wrote to Andy that we did NOT want housekeeping because we would be two AND we did not want to be bother. I knew it was I the price but I was not expecting any rebate, just to respect our need for intimacy. Well, Monday she woke us up at 11ham in order to finish her work.... I was very angry! On vacations, it is our prerogative to sleep if we want.
Good thing? The beach is STUNNING!!!!! but the house is way too expensive go somewhere ELSE!
Great vacation property!
We loved this house, right on beautiful brighton beach, the property manager and housekeeper were really great and super helpful throughout our stay. Our only concern was that the house is locked at night using number combination padlocks which just made us feel slightly uneasy if there were a fire and we needed to exit the property.
Right on the beach
The villa is ideally located, in a beautiful setting. The outside patio is an amazing place to sip a coffee in the morning or relax at the end of the day. Having the beach and the sea right outside the backyard was just amazing! Even if it is a public beach, it is very quiet.
It was very nice to have Michelle and Jerry around as well.
We felt secure. The villa is super clean and, although it could use a little update, especially the kitchen, we felt very comfortable there.
It is close to the city. Barbados is a wonderful place, the people we met were all very nice and the weather was perfect.
Some negative points: the neighbor's dog barking is a little excessive sometimes and can get on your nerves. And during our stay, the buzzing kites were plenty and sometimes stayed flying over our heads all day and night. We were told that this problem is known and worked on by the authorities so it might soon be resolved.
Still, overall, our stay was one of our all time favorites, we had a great family holiday, everybody absolutely loved it and we would not hesitate to go back.
New year in Barbados
This is our second visit to Barbados but our first to Brighton beach. The beach is stunning and the property is fabulous. We were looked after so well, not only pre-holiday, where our NYE party tickets were picked up for us, but throughout the holiday. Susan was always at the end of the phone to answer any queries and was really helpful. We were really well looked after! Thank you guys!
The only negative which did spoil our trip slightly were the dogs next door who woke us up barking every morning around 6.30am and barked a lot! This was a real shame as it wasn’t quite the relaxing break we’d envisaged.
Otherwise it would have been the perfect holiday and despite the lack of sleep, we’ve had an amazing time.
Sea Turtle is located on Brighton Beach, 2 miles north of Bridgetown (city centre and main fish market) and 3.5 miles south of Sandy Lane Hotel. Kensington Oval is walking distance and, being 4.5 miles from both Holetown and St Lawrence, the beach house is equidistant between both the major tourist/nightlife areas on the island. Some of the islands best bars and restaurants (CinCin, The Cliff, Daphne's & Scarlett's) are all less than a 5 minute drive north. There is a large modern supermarket only 600m away, and from there cheap local buses can be caught either up the West Coast or, via Bridgetown, to anywhere on the island.
Sea Turtle is located on Brighton Beach, at the south end of the Platinum Coast of Barbados, with direct access onto the sand, and with uninterrupted views of the Caribbean Sea.
