Excellent accommodation in great location

Really attractive setting for a very comfortable villa.

Had a very relaxing break and would return again.

Lovely location

  • 3 of 5

The villa was tastefully furnished and the location gave a cool breeze, even on the hottest days which was important for avoiding the mozzies. The clubhouse was within 3 mi utes walk and the gym (a little small) was also close by. The grounds were beautifully maintained and the whole location very quiet and peaceful.

The owner was very good at prompt communication. However everything was extra. All electricity ( charge for even switching on a light!) and very expensive. Laundry,( sheets etc) also extremely costly (not advised of the cost), wifi only available free at the clubhouse. Maid service also can be chargeable.

On arrival in the evening after a long journey, disappointed to find no welcome pack. The cupboards were bare with only toilet rolls and a pinch of salt supplied.

The neighbours however were great

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It should be clarified that the electricity charge (introduced to encourage responsible use) is clearly stated up front and normal use incurs a modest cost, as in this case, of ~£10 per week. It is correct that maid service and laundry during a short stay are extra but were actually included as a commercial gesture in this case, so it is unclear why it was a negative in this case. Wifi in villa is via wireless 4G dongle, which until now was impossible to recharge remotely. This is now possible so some data will be included in future rentals. A welcome pack is something some people are sensitive about and was omitted in this case, despite being requested, for which sincere apology was made.

Quiet, spacious, relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

What's not to like about this place ? The house itself is very spacious for up to 4 people. Everything is in good working order. The beds are all comfortable, the water pressure is very good, the air conditioning cooled the place well enough although we only used it 2 or 3 of the 8 nights we were there. Most nights we just opened all the doors and windows when we came back from our day's outings and the breeze cooled the place right down. There were enough bath and beach towels for 4 people which is nice because towels take up a lot of luggage space if you have to bring them yourself.

The complex is very quiet. We didn't really see too many of the residents or other renters. More often than not, we had the pools and hot tub to ourselves. Even when there was someone else there, it was usually only a few people. The common pools are really nice, and our plunge pool was perfect for cooling off. It also provided our 4 year old with endless fun.

As others have said, you really need a car to get here but we were fine with that. It allowed us to really explore the island.

The owner was super helpful, and super responsive to any questions you might have to ask.

Being able to just pack up and leave without having to do any clean up was great.

I do have a few suggestions for improvements. None of these would deter me from renting the place again, unreservedly recommending it to others, or changing my five star rating, but here they are:

- The pictures while they do a good job of depicting the house and the complex, are clearly out of date. The little palm trees in the front of the houses are now fully grown. There also seem to be two pictures of the dining area in the house each with different tables, there was only one. The grasses around the plunge pool have been replaced with some sort of bush. Some new pictures would be appropriate.

- The previous reviewer said that the kitchen is well appointed. I found that it was adequately appointed but I supposed that's subjective. I felt it could have used a few more pots/pans, and kitchen tools.

- It would be nice to have a few beach chairs and umbrellas for use by the renters so you don't have to pay to rent them.

But again, these are really minor quibbles. If you're looking for a a super relaxing, chilled out, comfortable place to stay, stop looking and rent it.

A great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Truly a great place to relax and enjoy Barbados. The villa is roomy, the kitchen well-appointed, the plunge pool inviting, and the patio a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast and lunch, listen to the wind blow, catch sight of a visiting monkey or two, tempt the little birds awaiting your crumbs, and enjoy the happy sounds of children at recess in the school across the valley. The gated community is beautiful and pleasant for walks with pleasing landscaping. The communal pool is inviting and a great spot for viewing sunsets. A car is pretty much a necessity as there is no restaurant on site, although there is a good supermarket about a mile away. The owner was very helpful via email when HomeAway failed to deliver arrival info. We hope to return.

Quiet and relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

The villa is comfortable and clean. The location is distanced from major eating houses in Holetown and the West Coast. This has good points in so much as it creates a very quiet holiday. Which was perfect for us. A car is essential, however there are buses to the coast and around . The pool is very good at the clubhouse and there was rarely anybody else there,during our stay. Being on a ridge, there is always a cooling breeze.We found the owners to be helpful accommodating and efficient.,The gym facilities were also very good. Overall it gave us the ideal break to recharge our batteries.David and Shantha.
