Alternatively a game of golf can be enjoyed just a few minutes away at Sandy Lane or Royal Westmoreland. Take a drive to the east coast of the island to view the stunning coastline and visit Bathsheba or the famous Crane Beach. You may like to hire a mini moke or a jeep to seek out the secluded beaches for yourself, however, the public transport can take you to any part of the island. There are many places of historical interest including plantation houses which are open to the public and the famous St. Nicholas Abbey which has its own rum production.There may be horse racing at the Garrison in Bridgetown or you could visit The Oval, the home of the Barbadian cricket team. You may wish to visit some of the beautiful old churches on the island, take a submarine ride or visit Harrison's Cave. These are just a few of the many attractions which we will provide you with details of for your stay.

Beautiful villa in local village setting

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at Turtles. The place is decorated so tastefully and it is very clean and comfortable - good beds, lots of places to dine and the kitchen has every amenity. We appreciated the cot and baby bath for our little one. The terrace is really lovely in the morning. Our daughter also enjoyed exploring the little garden surrounding the property.

We were very well looked after - lots of information available and help was always right there via the local property managers who were very kind.

We enjoyed the farmers market as well as the weekend food stall at the end of the road. The beach is less than 10 minutes walk and you can walk for long stretches in either direction - Payne's Bay is magnificent. The villa is situated in what feels like a local village, not a tourist spot per se but we loved it all the more for that reason. We enjoyed meeting our friendly neighbours and it was also very convenient as the Esso just around the corner could cover most basic needs. The bus to Holetown took about 10 mintues to Holetown for good grocery shopping. Highly recommended!

Absolutely lovely Villa. Extremely well equipped. Dave and Anita were very friendly and made sure we didn't want for anything. 5 mins from one of the best beaches on the Island. Hope to go back soon. Would highly recommend. Communication was great throughout. Many thanks.

Turtles Paynes Bay.... The Only Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

"Fabulous" best describes our stay at Turtles. Where do we start? Well, the property was exactly as stated with all appliances, TV, Fridge, Cable, Wi Fi etc. working perfectly. Inside, the bedrooms, kitchen and living room are all well presented with a homely, Caribbean feel. . The balcony was our favorite spot where we ate breakfast and hung out at nights watching the local Bajans "liming". Turtles is well maintained and the property manager (Dave) was there whenever we needed him.

As for Paynes Bay, you are seven minutes walk from glorious beaches as well as the local buses that take you into Bridgetown or wherever you want to go. We highly recommend the yellow "Reggae Buses" as you will get a slice of "Bajan living". "Jordans" supermarket is about a 7 minute bus ride and has everything you will need. Throughout our stay, we found the locals to be courteous and very helpful with directions and advice. At all times, day and night, we felt safe and you will find the locals living around Turtles to be warm and friendly. A friendly hi will get you a long way there.

With regards to tourist attractions, we recommend "Mullins Bay Beach Bar" in St Peters on Highway 1, Oistins Fish Fry and of course "The Jolly Roger". For getting around, we rented a car which gave us a lot of freedom but we left it at home when we were going into Bridgetown. Taking the bus was only BDS$2 a ride and saves you trying to find parking downtown.. We also ate at "Sharkeys" which a short walk from the house and if you want to take a walk on the wild side, try buying food from the food vendors recommended by Steve/Gill or the locals.. it's all very, very good.

If you are hiring a car, we used Drive-A-Matic who were great and very professional. Now for "Sticker Shock", gas is BDS$14.50/gallon or US$7.25 a gallon. yikes!!!!!. Still well worth it.

In summary, We would highly recommend Turtles and will be staying there again. Why anyone would want to stay in a cramped hotel room when they could roam around a beautiful home with all the creature comforts is beyond us.. Turtles offers excellent value for and you will find dealing with Steve & Gill to be a joy.

Steve/Gill, thank you for making our stay at Turtles a wonderful experience. It was everything that was advertised and then some... See you in 2016

Felt right at home here in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

This home is so nice, I recommend this place to anyone visiting Barbados. It is truly unique, in the middle of a typical Bajan neighbourhood with all the lovely sounds and smells of Barbados. I felt perfectly safe, as I always do in Barbados, but this home is quite secure just in case anyone is nervous about those things. Everyone we came across in the neighbourhood was friendly and greeted us, as I would have expected from Barbadians - friendly but discreet.

The villa is beautifully decorated with all sorts of thoughtful touches, we felt like we were in our own home, nothing was missing. It is also so nice to have the 2 bathrooms, 1 for each bedroom, a real advantage that other places can't offer. You can open all the doors and windows if you like, the place is breezy and well equipped with fans. We rarely used the air conditioners in the bedrooms, even though the weather was hot and dry during our stay, preferring to enjoy the Bajan breeze. I have been to Barbados many times, stayed in different types of places, but I think this place had just about everything. We enjoyed the patio the most, it is the best room of the house. It's spacious and breezy and private and totally relaxing.

The beach is just a short walk from the house and on the way back, we usually stopped at the gas station for snacks or drinks or small grocery items. It was really convenient. Marshall's bar is not too far where you can get delicious home cooked meals for a reasonable price and maybe watch a cricket match across the road. You are close to everything on the West Coast. Payne's bay is a beautiful area and the beach is gorgeous, you can walk along it for quite a distance.

I can't wait to return, this is the perfect place to wind down and immerse yourself in Barbados.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa in a typically Bajan setting. The neighbours were very friendly and welcoming. The villa is in a short walk away from one of the nicest beaches on the Island, Payne’s Bay, Where you can swim with Turtle’s and enjoy the white sandy beach and crystal waters of the sea. The villa was very well equipped, from beach towels, chairs and cool boxes for the outdoors, to Wi fi, Television, and laundry equipment on the inside. With all the conveniences of modern life to enjoy, Turtle’s Villa was a home from home.

The villa is conveniently located for some of the best beaches, shopping and restaurants.

The bus service is cheap and reliable. A car is not essential but enables you to see more of the Island at your leisure.

We will be returning in the very near future as this was the best holiday we have ever had.

Spacious, comfortable home with super owner-hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, we immediately felt that this was a home not a money-generating rental. From our first contact, Steve and Gill were so welcoming and helpful, we felt like we were staying in the home of friends who very much wanted us to enjoy our stay. Everything was as described in the listings with an added bonus of being located in a friendly Bajan residential neighbourhood. It IS only 5 minutes to wonderful beaches and a great variety of excellent restaurants. We enjoyed our stay immensely and wish our hosts the very best.

Turtles villa is just a stones throw from exclusive hotels including the famous Sandy Lane Hotel and Golf course and within walking distance of 'The Cliff', one of the best restaurants on the Island. Visitors from all over the island come to this area to swim with the turtles, which are just a few hundred metres from your front door. The nearby stunning white beaches offer a perfect setting for peace and relaxation. The villa is nestled in a quiet road just behind the coastal beach road where you can experience local friendly village life. Although a car is not necessary as local buses to all parts of the island are readily accessible, you may find a hire car useful for touring. Holetown is just a 5 minute drive away and here you can enjoy tax free shopping or browse in the local Chattel Shops as well as stocking up at the large supermarket. Holetown boasts a wide selection of excellent restaurants and opportunities to experience local culture and weekly steel pan band entertainment.
