A little bit of heaven

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is as advertised and is well maintained. We enjoyed our mornings and early evenings sitting in the outside seating area enjoying the pool. The villa is kept in tip top condition by the lovely Jackie. The villa is in a quiet residential area and quiet at night and in the mornings. We enjoyed early evenings watching the bats flying over the villa. We have stayed several times in Barbados and the villa is in a fantastic area, just behind the super centre where you can shop for groceries and holiday souvenirs. Across the road is a fantastic beach bar and restaurant where you will be well looked after by the friendliest staff on the island, Trudy, Dave, Pearson and the latest member Steve. The food in the restaurant is excellent and you can also enjoy snacks at the bar. Trinny manages the loungers on the beach if you fancy a change and also has a small shop a bit like an Aladdin's cave. A short walk will take you to the oldest church in Holetown and behind this you will find the Folkstone Marine Park which has seen a major improvement since our last visit to the island last year. Rum shacks are a must to visit and across the road from the Marine Park, check out Coxie's bar. He makes the best rum punch on the island. There are many bars and restaurants near to the villa, One Love Bar on first street is another where you will receive a friendly welcome. We ate at the Indian Restaurant on second street and would recommend this as truly excellent if you are missing a curry. Sea Catz is a fish bar and again if you want to have cod, chips and mushy peas is the place to go. We went again at night and although a little pricey, the food and service worth it. Local places to try are Nancy's, Marshalls' and Chris's Bar on a Friday for the excellent ribs. Any taxi will take you there. There are too many attractions locally to tell you about, try it and see. We enjoyed it so much, we have already checked out dates for next year. If you are unfamiliar with Barbados, Sarah or Jackie can fill you in on places to eat and visit. We didn't hire a car as the local buses can take you all round the island for $2 each trip. All in all, the best villa we have stayed in and we look forward to revisiting again and again.

Fantastic home from home on honeymoon

  • 5 out of 5
Well, what can we say - our first three weeks of married life have
been wonderful in Barbados from the base that truly was home from home;
Beachcomber.

The house is excellently appointed, the main bedroom and pool
area are particularly lovely. Both Sarah (local agent point if contact) and Jackie were great and I must say
Jackie (cleaning lady) was very thorough and respectful of our space (very nice lady).

The house was brilliantly positioned for all our needs and the location could not
have been better. We took a car or several days just to your the island and
that further reinforced how well placed Beachcomber is on the island.

Having spent 21 nights there we could not fault the cleanliness and easy maintenance of the house. Indeed the only tiny point was that the pool guy didn't turn up in week three however I quite enjoyed clearing flowers etc from the pool each morning so it didn't really matter.

The facilities in the house were much more than we needed as a couple however I can see where these would be well used should four guests stay.

Finally, it was particularly pleasant being in a residential location hearing the occasional noises of everyday life, without ever being in the slightest intrusive.

The villa is uber private on the poolside and my wife was delighted as she could sunbathe in real comfort without the constant annoyances of passing beach goers or hotel guests - this was our first villa holiday and we will never use hotels again.

Brilliant memorable time.

Lovely Villa and Perfect Location

  • 4 out of 5
We had a lovely time at Beachcomber, the villa has all the facillities you would require. its in an excellent location with the supermarket across the road, and some fantastic restaurants Beach House had lovely food and a fab view.

The bus service is easy to use and locals are very helpful.

the villa was in a clean and tidy manor, only niggle would be the cleaner never came whilst we stayed so i did end up washing towels whilst there.

Highly recommend we had a wonderful time here!!

Great position/location (needs more loungers)

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed here for 8 days March/April 2013. The location is perfect, easy walking into Holetown with the many varied shops, restaurants and beach. Holetown itself we thought was really nice, friendly and clean. There are shops from the Top designer down to the small supermarket all within easy reach. Along with the full range of restaurants. Regular buses are also available here and only B$2 a trip, the 'party' buses are a must just for the experience. Taxis have a stand near the bus stop too but as usual get a price first!
The local supermarket is the closest with a well stocked filling station shop nearby too.
We would recommend most restaurants from 'The Tides' top quality on food and service to 'Ragamuffins' a British owned local style menu. But best of all was Carizma also very close if you turn left out of the villa and immediately right down past the tennis courts you will find it nestled in among some little cottage shops. A Tapas style menu but excellent food and service with music in the evening a few nights a week. (Lunch and Breakfast too).
A couple of points on the villa itself. Although excellent with beds for 5 it is not really acceptable to have only two loungers! Also two of the outside chairs were rusted away and broken (we were told that these were due to be replaced, hopefully with additional loungers?).There is a covered patio area with soft seating which is very nice. Also as the tiled pool deck has no drainage the tiles get very dirty and it's not possible to wash them down as the water/dirt has nowhere to go. This dirt gets carried inside on your feet meaning that wherever you walk with bare feet they get very dirty.
Inside, be careful if you use the grill as the heat comes out onto the control knobs and my wife badly burned her thumb turning the grill off afterwards!

However apart from the couple of niggles we were very happy and would book again.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, the Caribbean climate and proximity to the sea means that outdoor furniture ( chairs and sun loungers) can rust very quickly. We are constantly renewing these but they are not always available.

The tiled outside pool deck does have a drain away and a hose pipe is available and kept in view.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We usually stay in Hotels on holiday, but decided this year to rent for a fortnight. We were absolutely delighted that we had chosen this house because it was in a brilliant location, near the beach and shops. Although close to the amenities it was so quiet at night and we felt very safe. The house has everything that you could possibly need and we enjoyed many barbeques by the pool in the evenings.

The house is kept very clean by the lovely Jackie who came in once or twice a week and Sarah who met us with the keys was very helpful and was only a phone call away if we had any problems.

We would highly recommend Beachcomber and would like to return again as we felt so at home there.

Best of Barbados

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to Barbados. Last visit we stayed on the southeast side of the island so we wanted to try the west coast. The house was fantastic. It was exactly as described and more. Location was perfect! Although we rented a vehicle, it really wasn't necessary as everything we needed was easily within walking distance. We were met by Sarah with open arms and she showed us everything we needed to know. The house was clean and well kept. Loved the pool area and the privacy. We were greeted by a pair of Green Monkeys sitting on the fence on arrival, so that was a treat. Loved everything about the house, the location, and the experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Hope to make it down again and if we do we will be back to your home.
Thanks for the great vacation experience.
