Vida Mejor - West Pool Villa - Most Excellent!
We recently had the pleasure of staying two weeks at West Pool Villa. There were four of us in our group: my parents, my husband and I. This definitely was our “home away from home” for two glorious weeks.
My husband and I have visited Barbados several times (15 times approx.) and I must say, this has been our most favourite accommodation to date.
My parents, who were first time visitors to this beautiful island, fell in love with the villa at first site. Since they are accustomed to staying at all-inclusive resorts, I wasn’t sure if they would take to the idea of a self-catering property for two weeks. Well, they couldn’t have been happier! They loved staying in a real house with its own yard and pool – and they loved having the option of lounging at home or going out.
The location is great: it’s situated on a quiet residential street in Holetown with great restaurants, shopping, beaches, bus service - all within a short walk.
The house amenities, facilities, cleanliness and overall appearance are high quality.
The bedrooms are airy - each has its own private balcony - nice touch. Beds are comfortable. Ensuite private bathrooms are in great condition and clean.
The main living areas are all very well appointed – plush comfortable couches, nice solid dining room table and chairs, big flat screen television.
The kitchen is very well stocked with all the utensils, cookware, dishes, wineglasses etc. you could need. The outdoor charcoal bbq was much used by us.
And, the ensuite laundry facilities were very convenient – we could pack light for a two week stay.
The backyard pool area is out of this world – beautiful, lush, exotic. And it was all ours to enjoy! From our morning dips, afternoon lounging, evening dinners – we loved our private sanctuary.
And, a green monkey would stroll into our pool patio every morning at approx. 8:00 a.m., give us a nod of his head (almost as if saying “good morning!”), then proceed to a nearby banana tree in a neighbouring yard to select his breakfast – a few minutes later, he would return with a huge banana in his mouth and saunter back through our patio away to his home.
The owner/manager, was very responsive to our requests and his housekeeper was friendly, efficient and accommodating. Kudos to both of them for striving to provide excellent accommodations and service.
All said, this is the perfect spot for families / two couples to stay when visiting Barbados.
