VILLA VIDA MEJOR JANUARY 2012

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second year staying in Villa 2 and it was another fabulous trip. We stayed 5 adults in the villa (Peggy set-up a fold-out bed at the back of the dining room) and never felt crowded. The Villa is private so you feel like you are in your own paradise. It was clean and exactly as pictured. It is also well located, walking distance to the grocery store, beach, shopping and restaurants. We have never had to rent a car (although if you do a large grocery on your arrival you will want a taxi to get the bags back). If we wanted to visit other beaches or go to Bridgetown or the Gap we simply took the bus (buses run every few minutes).

We did take a tour of the island so made arrangements through Carlton (Villa Owner) for a private tour. He referred us to Quami who took us anywhere we wanted to go at a reasonable rate (8 person van with airconditiong). He was very entertaining and gave us a lot of history of the Island while we drove around. Stuff you never think to ask but interesting to know. He made the trip a lot of fun. I would recommend him any time and we will be asking for him again next year because we have so much more to see!

Some "tips". If you are at a beach with restaurants (on the beach), you don't need to buy your beer or food at one of those restaurants. Often close buy there is a small beer stand that sells the same exact beer for half the price. The person in the beer stand will often be able to recommend a local restaurant (hidden but close by) where you can get real Bajan cooking at a good price. Sunday nights in Holetown you should go to Surfside to listen to the steel drums. If after your third Rum Punch you can still stand up, you can go to the main street to listen to the Karaoke. For groceries, yes they can be expensive but buy local fruits and vegetables as much as possible (tastier and cheaper).

There are also many details from the trip that made it special (chatting with Carlton or Peggy, the hummingbirds, the weather, etc...) that it is hard to cover them all but I did want to mention something extra special. Carlton & Peggy knew it was my birthday. They spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I would really like and wanted to be sure it was something that would always remind me of Barbados. They picked exactly right. Even if Barbados, Holetown and the Villa were not perfect (which is NOT the case) that guesture alone means I will be going back for a 3rd consecutive year.

IDEAL VACATION VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful place to stay, near to Holetown activity, shopping, restaurants, a comfortable local beach, and yet a peaceful serene oasis to return to in the evening. Carlton is a wonderful host, always present if needed but never intrusive. The Vida Mejor Villa has a lovely secluded pool surrounded by lush gardens; the interior is very spacious and easily accomodated our family of 4 with enough extra space that we never felt cramped. Kids loved the high speed internet. When we return to Barbados, we will without doubt return.

WONDERFUL RESTFUL HOLIDAY

  • 4 out of 5
The Villa is well located away from the main road but near enough to the beach, restuarants and nightlife. Literally a five minute walk. The pool was very refreshing but not too cold not to enjoy and was kept well maintained and cleaned throughout stay. The Villa was also serviced by a lovely lady (Peggy) who cleaned and changed bed linen etc on a regular basis. The villa has an alarm system which does not require keys to lock nad secure villa. This was helpful when you want to go jogging as you dont need to take a key with you! The villa also has a large enough safe to keep your valuables in including camera equipment etc. My only comment would be and has been suggested to the pleasant owner is that it is in need of a little cosmetic surgery! I mean a paint job on the outside and a few very minor repair jobs internally. I would most definitely rent this villa again.

CLOSEST YOU WILL GET TO HEAVEN

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is spacious and well designed. Just pack your clothes that is all you need. Carlton is always available for any requests and Peggy keeps the villa spotless. Both are fantastic people whom I enjoyed meeting and am honoured to call them friends. The villa is in a great location and just a quick walk to the gorgeous beaches. The bus stop is at the end of the street and Holetown is a short walk for shopping. I am returning early 2011 and can't wait. Thanks Carlton and Peggy for making my vacation so memorable. Cheers Beverly

EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 out of 5
We spend our Honeymoon at Vida Mejor Villa. Lots of Privacy and very comfortable.
Every other day a maid service that is very helpfull and friendly.
It is only a short walk to Holetown and the Marine reserve.

Everything is taken care of in a friendly and helpfull way and there's is no need to worry about a thing.

Beeing Dutch we liked the fact that we got lot's of good quality space, with a private pool, at a much better price then an average hotel room.

Go visit the website and enjoy yourself!!!!

SUPREME PROPERTY

  • 5 out of 5
Villa II is wonderful! All of them are, but we took a liking to this one because there is an empty lot to the side and back and there is privacy. The interior is nicely laid out and spacious. There is a security system, a computer, amble room with 2 king beds, stocked with lots of towels, a washer and dryer room, yard, lovely landscaping, and of course the harmless resident green monkey that has claimed a nearby tree. The best feature about this island is there are NO bugs, really! and the temperatures are in the 80's with little rain. My husband and I went alone without child and it was marvelous! The home has all the amenities, including a car with a driver at a very reasonable rate. It's a 5 minute walk to Holetown where there is an abundance of really fine restaurants and nice shops. Converting prices from BDS to US$ runs you a meal at about $35/each, and the cuisine is top of the line and well worth it. The beach is across the street, and the best beach is to the left of the town beach with chair rentals for $15.

The owner, Carlton was accommodating, pleasant, very professional and so customer service oriented, it was comparable to the Ritz, with the Carlton of course. I can't rave enough about this place. It beats staying in a hotel where you have to get dressed for dinner and deal with the crowds. You can opt to eat at home and relax and watch a movie which can be rented from the local DVD rental store. The grocery store offers a shuttle, but walking it works too. We occasionally opted for some local favorites - fly-fish and maui-maui etc for dinner at home and it was great! The Bajans are unbelievably curtious and friendly. As for the European visitors, they are aloof, so don't expect to make many acquaintances. I like to support the locals tradesman, so I suggest buying some of the local made unique jewelry and crafts. The majority of the island's revenues is through tourism. We are definitely going back here and will take our son who will enjoy participating in snorkeling with the sea turtles, sailing, surfing, etc.
This was one of the best vacations I think I've had, thanks to the great accommodations and Carlton's hospitality.

Notes:
From the dining room , the living room and the kitchen you can see the pool. You walk out of the living room on to the semicircular entertainment patio which has tropical plants on both sides and then on to the pool deck. The entertainment patio is perfect for alfresco dining. The setting on the entertainment patio is unique. You have lush gardens on both sides with humming bird feeders. So when you are not directly in the sun on the pool deck , you can come on to the patio in the shade to read or even sit at the outside table with a beer, rum punch or whatever your heart fancies. This villa unit is East facing and gets more sun in the morning. All of our villas were designed by an architectural firm, who designed each one for total privacy i.e. individual separate entrances, separate parking, own pool and garden or spa. This villa (# 2 poolside) is in the same building with villa 1 but the pool is private to this villa. Rent both villas and have access to both the pool and spa.
