This villa is a private pool. Although all four villas have the same basic design, and similar furnishings and fixtures..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Carlton,

Thank you very much for our great holiday in your villa - it was our best holiday so far! Your villa is truly fantastic, we had everything we needed and more... we loved hummingbirds, green monkeys, beautiful flowers in your garden, night swimming in the pool... and I could go on.

Also thank you very much for the use of your car and arranging the taxi to take us to the airport - it is a shame that we couldn't say 'Thank you'

and 'Good bye' to you personally on our last day.

Please pass our regards also to Hazel - it was a real pleasure to talk to her!

Kind regards,

Radovan, Martina, Alexandra & Marcus

Carlton

I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know we had a thoroughly enjoyable time in Barbados last week. The villa is spacious and beautiful. We really enjoyed sitting out on the veranda on an evening next to the pool, drinking rum punch. We also found everything we needed a short walk away, bars, restaurants, shops and the beautiful Sandy Lane B

Vida Mejor - West Pool Villa - Most Excellent!

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Villa #4 was FANTASTIC -DEC. 2009 REVIEW

  • 5 out of 5
Wow, what an amazing place! We always rent a home/condo when we travel and this one was the best ever! Fabulous layout for our family with our 2 teen/young adult sons. It really felt like our "home" when we arrived back from our wonderful excursions. I was struck with the beauty of Barbados, it's people...so friendly, the feeling of safety, it's beaches and gorgeous landscape AND the beauty of this villa. We loved it's cleanliness, "hi-tech" stuff- our boys were impressed and loved the wireless hi speed internet :), the pool was lovely and private, its homey feel, and close to what we needed location and green monkeys :). Really easy walk to the beach for swims and sunsets. Also very close to bus stops to travel to the different beaches and towns. For the first time ever we didn't need to rent a car! HUGE savings! We would highly recommend hiring a private taxi van driven by Bajan, "Quammie"!. (Carlton has his name and number). He is a very knowledgeable of the island and will take you on a half or whole day tour of the island which is spectacular!!!! He knows every hidden road and spot with great views and he'll totally cater to you with funny stories and great history tales!! That was the most favourite thing we did hands down! Our boys LOVED that day. He took us to the northern tip of Barabdos to the "Animal flower caves"...very misleading name, but DON'T MISS THIS! We climbed down some steep stairs (I have bad knees but it was doable:) into some naturally carved out caves. The view of the sea and the ocean meeting is unbelievable. Not only that, you get to swim in a secluded 9' deep swimming hole in a cave and that is so fantastic!! Take your swim suits and a towel and a camera. We loved that! Don't go on a rough sea day though as caves will be closed. The view from the cliffs there is spectacular as well! There is a grocery store within walking distance to the villa with a free shuttle to take you back "home".You may have to wait for it though but the store has everything you need. It seems very expensive to buy meats and some produce too but you can bring frozen meats with you if you aren't coming from too far away. We brought a pull behind cooler bag with frozen chicken and steaks with us and that was a big saving! Went to Oisen Fish Fry on Friday night and that was fun but it is a very long way. We had a Bajan friend drive us there and back. You would want to take a taxi for sure! CARLTON IS THE BEST! Thanks man and Peggy(housekeeper) too!:)

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 out of 5
This really is a home from home, comfortable and well equipped with a lovely garden, complete with visiting humming birds and sometimes monkeys!!! The nearest beach is ten minutes walk & the villa's position, right in the midst of Holetown, gives good road access to many other of the island's fabulous locations.
Carlton is a wonderful host; when illness prevented us from taking our planned trip last year, he simply put the deposit we had already paid towards the trip this year-no quibbles!!!
The house is spotless-thanks in a big way to the housekeeper Mary and the pool is well maintained and tastefully lit for evening use.
Parking is easy and local shops restaurants & markets are nearby.
When we have visited Barbados before, we have always used hotels-but this experience was much more pleasurable. Our party ranged in age from 28 to 85 and we all had a great time!
Thank you again Carlton for a memorable holiday and we can't wait to come again!

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. Wild green monkeys actually visit some fruit trees close by on a daily basis. They don't come close to humans but can you observe them from the distance and be thrilled by a Barbadian wild life creature! 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.
